KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 6, 2024

FMC PRAYER: Father, Your promise of our eternal home offers us HOPE and visions of a goodness and glory that no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has ever imagined. What’s more, You made us for it – this is all a part of Your master plan, set in place before the foundation of the world. Would You please give us a faith-filled imagination that finds ways to live out this hope of heaven, finally seeing the unseen Provider that has sustained us all these years. Would You please help us bring the hope of heaven into our every-day, ordinary lives, so that we might live more of Your life here and now, as Your Son, our Lord and Savior, prepares a room for us. Help us to live in Your presence and please You more and more, that You might fill us with Your Spirit as we eagerly and joyfully wait for the coming of Your Son. It’s only because of Him that we are able to lay this prayer before You this day.

SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Number 14:13-19

FMC ENDSTATE: Throughout the Tri-State Region & Beyond…the Glory of God is honored…Lord, remind us each day how important it is to keep our eyes focused on the One thing that matters – Your Glory Alone. May Your name be honored in our households as we put off everything that distracts us and draws our attention elsewhere. Thank You for the new mercies You give us each and every day, may we not waste the opportunities that You set before us.

INVISIBLE CHURCH: Lord, reveal to me the wonders of Your Word. Father, as You spoke the world into existence, please continue to speak new life into Your children today. Give us knowledge as we look to the glory of Your Son on display. Give us grace to receive Your Word and rejoice in it. And convict us of our sin so that we might hate it as much as You do! May the weak be strengthened, the strong be humbled, and the Church be continually built up!

STUDENTS: GROWTH – Heavenly Father, may the Holy Spirit set a fire in the hearts of our students and adult leaders! Fill them with a sense of purpose and adventure. Guide, protect, sanctify, and unite them so that a whole new generation of youth may rise up in Jesus’ name…all for Your glory. 

SCRIPTURE:1 Timothy 4:12 Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”

CARE: Father, thank You for the difficult people in my life. As I interact with them this week, please equip me with Jesus’ mentality when He dealt with difficult people here on earth. He used rebuke when necessary (John 8:47), remained silent (John 8:6), asked questions (Mark 11:28–29), pointed them to Scripture (Mark 10:2–3), and related to their situation with a story (Luke 7:40–42). Please give me a keen perception of my own pride as I exercise my faith in accordance with Your will.

Paul says in Romans 12:3: “For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.” So, when I interact with difficult people this week Lord, gently remind me to approach each encounter with humility and meekness.
