Jan 3rd 2021 · Day 3
Each Sunday we take a break from our usual rhythm and we take some time to pray. We want to prepare our hearts for our respective gatherings with church family all over the world. We also want to focus our hearts on some specific things to pray into as children of God.
God's ear is attentive to us. He hears our prayers and calls us to carry His heart for His Church. Today, on this first Sunday of 2021:
- Pray for your Pastor's and Church leaders.
- Pray for your church family (that they will be strong in faith this year)
- Pray for growth in your church this year.
- Pray that you will be a blessing within your local church community.
Father in heaven, we honour You today. We know that in our world right now many are confused, frustrated, divided and even feel like giving up. You have promised to answer when we call, and also to never leave or forsake us. As we think about the family of God we recognise that we are all one in Christ Jesus. Whatever our title, position or calling, we lay it at Your feet as we begin this new year and we ask for Your help as we seek to serve others.
Thank you for the finished work of the cross which has brought us back into right relationship with You. We pronounce blessing across your Church today and ask that You would release each of us to be "builders" in Your house, blessers of Your world and carriers of Your hope. In Christ's Holy Name, Amen.
