Prayer Ministry

From the Prayer Corner—Pray for Our Community and Our Country

 

Thursday May 2nd is the 2024 National Day of Prayer.  The theme is “Lift up the Word – Light up the World”.   “For You are my lamp, O Lord, and my God lightens my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. This God—His way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.”  - 2 Samuel 22:29-31

 

Our local National Day of Prayer will take place at The Hunt Club Clubhouse Flag Pole in Gibsonia from 12:00pm to 1:00pm that day.  Please feel free to head over there and join in prayer with others from the community – or simply consider praying wherever you are at that day for:

 

#1.  Pray for Unity in America.  The present spiritual crisis in America is calling us to pray to come together as a nation.  God is the only One who can bring unity, harmony, and oneness in America; therefore, we look only to Him in prayer.

#2.  Pray for Unity in the Church.  God is calling His church in America to unify upon the authority of the Bible and on Jesus Christ, the only Savior of the world. Call upon God for His Church in America to walk in unity, harmony, and oneness.

#3.  Pray for Unity in Families, Workplaces, Communities, and Cities.  God’s power upon us is the only source to unite our families, workplaces, communities, and cities in America. Pray for America’s families, workplaces, communities, and cities. Pray for your family, workplace, community, and city. Pray for forgiveness, reconciliation, healing, and unity.

#4.  Pray for Unity among all Ethnicities and Peoples in America.  Since each of us is made in the image of God, we each bear His image regardless of the color of our skin or the uniqueness of our ethnicity. Through the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, He has torn down the wall of division among all ethnicities and peoples. In God alone, we live in peace with one another; standing as one people against all racial and ethnic division, denouncing it as sin and not God’s will for us.

#5.  Pray for the Next Great Spiritual Awakening in America.  Preceding the epic movement of God on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2, Jesus’ people were continually united in prayer together.  Pray that His Church in America would wake up spiritually and unite visibly; and pray for the next Great Spiritual Awakening in America to occur in our generation.  Call upon God to bring spiritual awakening now in America, shaping the future of America, just as the Great Spiritual Awakenings in our history have shaped our spiritual heritage as a nation in the past. 

God Bless America!
