KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 20, 2024

FMC PRAYER: Help for the Hurting – Lord, we lift up those who are hurting right now. May they come to know You as El Roi, the God who sees them. For every situation of rejection, help them to remember their place in Your Kingdom – as Your beloved children. Bind up the brokenhearted! In every area of bondage, set the captives free; in every case of mourning, replace it with Your oil of gladness. Comfort them so that they will have a ministry of comfort to others.

SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Numbers 14:20-38 ~ God’s Judgement

FMC ENDSTATE: Throughout the Tri-State Region & Beyond…the Holy Spirit’s fruit ripens in believers’ lives…Lord, we want to be effective for Your kingdom, constantly growing into mature and fruitful disciples – making mature and fruitful disciples! Awaken our senses to be attuned to Your Spirit so that we are able to see Your plan revealed throughout our lives and repent when our paths are shadowed by our sinful nature. May generations be blessed because of our obedience and Your eternal faithfulness.

INVISIBLE CHURCH: Lord, help me to treasure Your bride as You do. Father, help us to see the centrality of Your church in this broken 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. All of history will culminate in Your Son’s wedding to His beautiful bride. Lord, help us treasure Your bride as You do and pour ourselves out to build her up.

STUDENTS: FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT ~ Lord, we pray that You will grant our students love for one another; joy in the midst of chaos; peace that surpasses all understanding; patience as they constantly deal with change; kindness to those around them; goodness for You alone are good; gentleness as they remember Christ’s humanity and how He treated those around Him; and self-control as they put on the armor of God every day.

SCRIPTURE: Galatians 5:22-23 ~ But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

CARE: Father, as we navigate the twists and turns of each day, help me to pause and see beyond my own needs and to recognize the struggles and pains of those around me. Grant me the insight to understand the silent cries for help, whether they come from a friend, a neighbor, or a stranger passing by. Give me the patience to listen, really listen, to the stories and worries shared with me, and please give me wisdom to offer comfort and support. Help me extend a nurturing hand to those who are hurting, and be a beacon of kindness in a world that can often feel harsh and unforgiving. Please bless me with the strength to be a source of light and love in a world that so desperately needs it.
