KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 29, 2023
FMC PRAYER: Lord, we lift up our entire congregation to You. Open our eyes to recognize where you have placed us and how we can best serve You each day. As we respond to Your calling Lord, fulfill our every purpose and every faith-filled act of service by Your power. May our knees become bruised and battered from humbly submitting to You and You alone as we walk in love with one another, clothed in Your righteousness and longing for to see Your Kingdom come.
SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Acts 2 + Romans 12
FMC TEAM VALUES: Value 4 – Stretch it Out: We want our team to be agile and athletic, quickly and effectively responding to the unexpected and spontaneous. In fact, we want to move beyond being OK with change and eventually be able to leverage change as a tool that helps us accomplish our mission. Along with this speed and flexibility, it’s important for us to embrace candid feedback and evaluation so we can be even more effective the next time around.
INVISIBLE CHURCH: Lord, help me to treasure your bride as you do. Father, may we see the centrality of the church in Your eternal purposes for this world. From men and women who were Your enemies, You are assembling a community of born-again worshipers from every tribe, tongue, and nation to proclaim Your matchless wisdom to the world and spiritual realm (Ephesians 3:1–10). All of history will culminate in your Son’s wedding to his beautiful bride (Revelation 21:1–2). Oh, Lord, help me treasure your bride as you do and pour myself out to build her up.
PILLAR: Pillar 7. Make Disciples (disciple-maker/mentor/developer) Pray for those who attend FMC – that we would represent Your local body of believers well. Help us to establish mentorship relationships, where everyone mentors both up and down across the church.
MEDITATE: 2 Timothy 4:2 – “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.”
