PRAYER GUIDE

 

Day One: Sunday The Act of Worship – Pray today that your church and the churches of our association will worship God in Spirit and in truth, yielded to Him as we gather together, united in praise. Pray this not only for our association, but for associations across America this Sunday. (Acts 2:1, 43)

 

Day Two: Monday The Act of Fellowship – Pray today that  God will prompt His people in the churches of our association to connect with one another in meaningful spiritual relationships, encouraging one another to live and serve in Jesus’ name, accountable to one another in prayer. (Acts 2:42, 46)

 

Day Three: Tuesday The Act of Evangelism – Ask God today to open the eyes of every Christian in our churches and association to see the harvest field around them, and also ask that He will place at least one person in the life of each Christian so that this day the story of Jesus might be shared with those who need Him. (Acts 2:37-38)

 

Day Four: Wednesday The Act of Discipleship — Pray today that Christians will realize the importance of helping one another grow in their relationships with the Lord, becoming the disciples of Jesus He has called us to be. Evangelism and discipleship go together, so pray that those who are led to the Lord will have a person or a group they can connect with and learn from as a new follower of Jesus. (Acts 2:46-47)

 

Day Five: Thursday The Act of Ministry – We talk about Christians being the hands and feet of Jesus…pray today that Christians in our association will discover anew the importance of being Jesus to those around them by caring for others in His name, meeting needs, and making a difference for God’s glory. (Acts 2:44-45)

 

Day Six: Friday The Act of Missions – So many people across the street and around the world need to know Christ…pray today that our churches and association will take the Great Commission of Jesus more seriously than ever before, going and making disciples everywhere He sends us. (Acts 2:7-21)

 

Day Seven: Saturday The Act of Prayer – we talk about prayer, but how much do we practice it? Ask the Lord to prompt His people, including you, to pray with a new fervency. As you look toward tomorrow, another Sunday, ask   God to move in a dramatic way in your church and  association to mobilize His people to be the healthy, outreaching followers of Jesus we must be for such a time as this. (Acts 2:42-43)

 

Day Eight: Sunday What might God do? What could happen in your community and across our nation if churches became healthy, if churches focused on trusting and obeying God like never before? Ask the Lord to move among His people in your church and association today so that our nation might know the Way, the Truth, and the Life: Jesus.
