kingdom prayers


FMC PRAYER: Lord, we lift up Your Church in this nation. We humbly confess that we have sinned and have messed things up immensely. We’ve operated out of acquired wealth thinking we could do it all on our own – but we cannot, Father. Please heal Your various Church bodies and draw us into a unified people once again – just like the Israelites when you led them through the wilderness and into the promised land, fully aware and dependent on each other. Forgive us, Lord, as we continually recognize our sinful ways and repent. Grow in us a longing to continually seek Your face. Thank You for hearing and forgiving us. Please heal our land and our hearts, Lord!

SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Joshua 1-2 ~ Caleb + Joshua Application

FMC ENDSTATE: Throughout the Tri-State Region & Beyond…the grace of God is cherished…grace, 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 exemplify Your character as we extend grace to those we encounter each day, for the Glory of Your Name alone.

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

STUDENTS: Lord, give our students Your peace. We pray that You will lead them to take every single thing they are worried about to You in prayer, so that Your peace, which passes all understanding, will guard their hearts and minds in You. May they rest in Your goodness and the certainty of Your eternal promises.

SCRIPTURE: Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

CARE: Lord, guide me in acts of kindness, both big and small, this week. Let me be a source of warmth and positivity to those I encounter. As I go about my day, direct me to find opportunities where I can make a difference in the lives of others for Your glory alone – be that through a smile, a helping hand, or a kind word. Open the eyes of the lost so that through these acts of kindness, Your unfathomable love and care might be deeply felt and lives be forever changed. Thank You for the opportunity to spread Your love through simple acts of caring. In Your name, I pray. Amen.
