Prayer – 31 July

Pray that those in our circles would place their faith in Jesus, the One who is the Son of God, resurrected from the dead

…the gospel promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 1:2-4

Prayer – 30 July

May Jesus’ kingdom be about much more than our words, but transform us by God’s power.

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.
1 Corinthians 4:20

Prayer – 29 July

Pray that the people we share with will see God’s power and not our “wisdom”.

My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5

Prayer – 28 July

At the heart of what Jesus came to do is the cross (which in many senses the New Testament uses as a short form for everything leading up to the cross, the resurrection and the ascension). Pray that we as followers of Jesus will be focused on the centrality of the cross and that those who do not follow Jesus would be set free to see the truth and the power of Jesus’ love

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18

Prayer – 27 July

The power of God working in us is what enables every good work that God calls us to, to be accomplished. Pray then that his glory will be displayed in everything.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

God, we thank you for your grace
For your reaching down from heaven
To touch our ordinary lives
In unexpected places
When we might feel anxious
Wondering what is next

God we thank you for your presence
As Paul prayed for the Ephesians
May the eyes of ours hearts be enlightened
In order that we may know the hope to which he has called us
The riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
And his incomparably great power for us who believe.
May we know the power that is the same as the mighty strength
He exerted when he raised Christ from the dead
And seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms

God open the eyes of our hearts
To see you beside us
Wherever we are
Your grace seeing us
Loving us
Your encouragement energising us
To commitment
To a partnership
That will see your promises of a new Kingdom come
And your will being done on earth as it is in heaven

God we take hold of your promise
To stick with us until you’ve done everything you promised

May we sense that presence, grace and promise
We offer ourselves to it

In Jesus name

Prayer – 26 July

Pray that as pastor Mike and Brent preach that our words will be full of God’s power.

My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5

Prayer – 25 July

Pray that all of us would tell the story of the resurrection with great power, so that lives are changed.

With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. 
Acts 4:33a
