KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 26, 2021
Vision: To reach the Tri-State Region & Beyond for God’s Kingdom by making fully devoted followers of Jesus.
Pray that everything we do would be done to accomplish this! Pray that we would be willing to set anything that doesn’t help us reach this vision. Pray for the faith to follow the Spirit’s lead, keeping in step with Him each day, personally and corporately.
End state: Throughout the Tri-State Region & Beyond… the Glory of God is honored, intimacy with Jesus is treasured, the Holy Spirit’s fruit ripens in believers’ lives, the holiness of God is revered, the goodness of God is relished, the truth of God is pursued, the faithfulness of God is trusted, the promises of God are believed, the grace of God is cherished, the wrath of God is feared, the commandments of God are obeyed, the lost are found, repentance and gratitude flow, praise and prayer erupt, lives and communities are transformed, love and joy fills hearts, freedom and forgiveness overwhelm, barriers are broken down, the hungry are fed, marriages are restored, families are reunited, and prodigals come home!
Pray that we would see these things come to pass in ever-increasing ways! Pray that we would celebrate each and every moment we see this happening in one another’s lives!
FMC Team Values: Values describe how we will behave as we accomplish our vision, mission, strategy, and end state. Our values are not so much about getting into the endzone, but rather more about HOW we score. Without stating them, the Tri-State Region and FMC should be able to recognize these values by how we behave. FMC has ten team values – we’ll share one each week, simply cycling through them as we pray together.
Pray that no matter who or where or when, that these values would begin to permeate who we are and how we live and serve and love together!
Value 6: Build the bench
To reach the Tri-State Region & Beyond, we must be committed to reproducing ourselves exponentially. We must constantly strive to lead more and do less. None of us are the Lone Ranger. Instead, we’re looking to build a team of people to serve alongside us, so we can multiply our skills and expertise. Similarly, we must be able to scale our processes and systems so that we can accommodate the growing body of Christ who are called to serve: we must build redundancy into our capability so that there is no single point of failure on the team.
KEY WORDS: MULTIPLICATION, RECRUITMENT, DEVELOPMENT
That Christ-centered relationships would flourish in the church
Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle. Romans 12:9-10
Pray, church, that we would be uncompromising in our commitment to love one another as Christ has loved us; that we would speak the truth in love to one another; that we would forgive quickly and completely; that we would guard our hearts and the words that come out of our mouths; that we would seek one another’s good before our own; that we would be people of abundant grace; that we would generously and selflessly serve one another – for our great good and God’s great glory.
Four Mile Preschool
Pray for Marcy Helm and the entire staff – that they would be filled with the love of Christ as they care for and teach so many preschoolers. Pray that health would be fortified, not just in them, but in the children. Pray that there would be opportunities to engage each family in meaningful ways, in order that they might come to know the love and grace of God personally.
