Awaken Our World--How to Pray
Pray with us for revival and awakening in our hearts, our church, our community, and our world.
Editor's Note: Today is our last prayer gathering in the sanctuary from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. or p.m.
“Awake, O sleeper,
and arise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”
How to pray the Great Commission:
“And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me (1). Go therefore (2) and make disciples of all nations (3), baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age’” (4).
1. Jesus, thank you for your authority over all things. Thank you for coming into the world as a human like us, and thank you for giving us a place to be part of your mission to redeem the world.
2. Father, show me where you are calling me to go with the good news. Give me courage to go and to give where you call me. As our teams prepare to go to South Asia, to Nepal, and to Houston, prepare the hearts of people they will meet, and help each person to demonstrate the gospel through their words and deeds.
3. Lord, bless the work of our missionaries overseas. Give them confidence and endurance as they show your love to those around them. Use them to add more men, women, and children to your kingdom.
4. God, thank you for your promise to be with us as we obey your commands, even when they seem scary. Let your promise cast out fear of sharing the gospel, and teach us to proclaim the good news with boldness.
God, as we conclude this series, keep awakening us to your will and purpose in this world, and continue using us for your glory.
