Prayer

The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
Psalms 145:18

Weekly Prayer Life

Lord Jesus Christ,
We are so thankful you said, “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” (Luke 12:32)
We are so thankful for the ease with which you walked upon the earth,
the generosity and kindness you showed to people,
the devotion with which you cared for those who were out of the way and in trouble,
the extent to which you even loved your enemies and laid down your life for them.
We believe this is a life for us,
a life without lack…
the sufficiency of your Father…
the fullness of life…
poured through you…
You have promised [to give us] that same love,
that same life, that same joy, that same power…
Lord, slip up on us today.
Get past our defenses, our worries, our concerns.
Gently open our souls, and speak your Word into us.
We believe you want to do it,
and we wait for you to do it now.
In your name,
amen.

Please pray together with us this week for:

• Pray for our city especially for ongoing wisdom in the struggle against Covid 19. Join other Christians on May 28-30 for a time of prayer and fasting. There is no set format for this time of fasting – just fasting as God leads you and seeking God’s heart and will for our city!

• Pray for our church during this time of transition.

• Pray for our worship services this weekend as we continue with our sermon series entitled “Courageous”. This coming Sunday we will look at Matthew 14:25-33, “Courageous in Life’s Storms”
