Prayer Guide

Focus on the previous week’s message:
September 24, 2023 - Rusty Massey

Series Focus: Walking with God in the Wilderness
Numbers 9:15-23
  1. Daily obedience - Identifying and following where is God moving.
  2. Examining opportunities to move forward; what is needed to be obedient and for the task at hand - What do we need to keep or remove? Do we need to retool things?
  3. Be controlled by the Holy Spirit - Allow the Holy Spirit to lead, guide, teach, and help us evaluate things.

How do we know the Holy Spirit is speaking to us?
  • Test the leading - if it is counter to scripture then it is not of the Holy Spirit
  • There will be unity of the Spirit
  • Experience God's peace regarding the decisions to be made
  • Lines up with the way God gifted me
  • Lines up with the God given desires of my heart  

Pray for our congregation and Board in the midst of this transition:
  1. May we remember that Jesus is the head and leader of the church (Colossians 1:17–18; Ephesians 5:22–25). Jesus is sovereign and in control of all things, and he is involved in every step of our situation.
  2. May we strive for unity as stated in 1 Corinthians 1:10: "I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment."
Pray through the building and outside as weather permits:
Suggested prayer points as you go through different parts of the building:
  • Pray that God will use the space to further the gospel.
  • Pray that the space will be used for its intended purpose (e.g., Children’s Ministry rooms will be safe spaces for children to learn about Jesus).
  • Thank God for what He has done and is doing in the space.
  • Look at the objects in the room and how they can be used to draw people to grow in their relationship with Christ (e.g., pray that the people who sit in the chairs in the sanctuary will be obedient to God’s calling on their life).
  • Ask God to reveal specific needs in this space and how can they be met.
  • Pray for those who serve in the space to be empowered by the Holy Spirit.
