FMC PRAYER: Father, help us to love one another as a body of believers, recognizing that we are a representation of Your eternal Kingdom. May our love for one another prove that we are Your children as we rid ourselves of the sinful nature of this world by obeying the Truth of the gospel. Teach us what it means to love one another with a sincere, deep, and biblical love. Give us a spirit of unity so that we may glorify You with one heart and one voice.


FMC ENDSTATE: Throughout the Tri-State Region & Beyond…families are reunited…Lord we pray that You would restore the bonds that have been broken within our family members. We know, God, that You love reconciliation and restoration, but we also admit that we cannot do anything on our own and for that, we ask that Your Holy Spirit soften our hearts, our words, and our attitudes. May we be filled to the brim with love so that it may overflow and we may share it with our families. Allow us to be instruments of Your blessings to them. In due time, Lord, let our relationships also be restored.

INVISIBLE CHURCH: Lord, deepen our longing for Christ’s return. So often we pursue comfort and earthly joy in this sin-bent world when our hearts should long for the return of Christ. Humbly draw us into Your holy presence and show us the glories of a sin-and suffering-free eternity where we will worship You face-to-face, Lord. We long for Your presence and perfect restoration!

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.”

CARE: Lord, Your Word tells us that we are to pray for all people (1 Timothy 2:1), for government leaders (1 Timothy 2:2), for the unsaved (1 Timothy 2:4), for fellow Christians (Ephesians 6:18), for ministers of the gospel (Ephesians 6:19–20), and for the persecuted church (Hebrews 13:3).

When Jesus prayed for others, He prayed for their faith (Luke 22:32), He prayed against temptation in their lives (Luke 22:40), He prayed for their unity (John 17:11), and He prayed for their sanctification (John 17:17).

Paul prayed for the salvation of the lost (Romans 10:1); he prayed that the brothers would stay on the right path (2 Corinthians 13:7); he prayed that believers would be strengthened by the Spirit, rooted and grounded in love, able to comprehend God’s love, and filled with the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:14–19).

Praying for others gets our focus off of ourselves and onto the needs of those around us. May this help guide you in your prayers this week.
