KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF JANUARY 22, 2024
FMC PRAYER: Lord, this week we lift up our senior members at FMC and ask that Your Spirit move mightily within their hearts, souls, minds, and strength this week. May they continue to seek Your wisdom and reflect Your joy as they patiently interact and instruct those they encounter. We thank You for the wisdom and knowledge they’ve attained through Your revelation and humbly ask for ears to hear Your Truth through the stories we hear about Your faithfulness. May we never live in the past but always be looking forward to Your Kingdom’s reign in our lives until we see You face-to-face.
SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 6:5-8
FMC ENDSTATE: Throughout the Tri-State Region & Beyond… the grace of God is cherished… the gift that we do not deserve but were freely given. Lord, may we never underestimate what a powerful gift grace is – when we fall and fail in our every day ordinary lives, thank you for gently reminding us how powerful and accepting Your love is. Help us to extend that piece of Your character to those we encounter each day, because no one is perfect – for the Glory of Your Name alone.
INVISIBLE CHURCH: Lord, protect us from evil men and evil ideas. Since the beginning, the enemy of our souls seeks to destroy Your glorious purposes for the world and Your people. We pray for Your protection against all powers and principalities seeking to sow division, anger, envy, greed, and lust among Your people. Keep evil men with destructive intent and unsound doctrines far from us. Expose our culture’s ugly lies and the lies we want to believe by setting our hearts on Truth that leads to love, a good conscience, and sincere faith (1 Timothy 1:5).
STUDENTS: Companionship of Christ: Father, we pray that our students would experience Your presence and friendship in a new and comforting way. We know that You promise to always be with us and we pray that our students would cling to Your nearness as well. We pray that they might know the sweetness of fellowship with You and rest in the assurance that You will never leave them or forsake them.
SCRIPTURE: Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
