“Continue in Prayer” (June 2014)

Yesterday was New Morning Church’s second “5th Sunday Prayer and Communion Service”. For those that couldn’t make it, or who simply want to “continue in prayer” (Colossians 4:2) this week, here are the prompts used during the service with the corresponding verses that were read:

  • Pray that God would open the eyes of our lost family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors to the truth of His Word (cf. 2 Corinthians 4:3, 4).
  • Pray that our family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors would be willing to listen to the truth when it is shared (cf. Matthew 13:15).
  • Pray that every believer would recognize his or her responsibility to share the truth, and ask for specific opportunities for you to to do so this week (cf. Matthew 9:38).

Also, leading up to this service we used social media to solicit prayer requests. Each need was shared, the individual’s state of residence given in place of his or her name, and someone volunteered to pray. Everyone enjoyed this unique component and we prayed for needs in UT, TX, VA, and NC.

“Continue in Prayer” (March 2014)

I was thrilled with both the turn out, which included a number of return guests, and the participation in New Morning Church’s first “5th Sunday Prayer and Communion Service”! For those that couldn’t make it, or who simply want to “continue in prayer” (Colossians 4:2) this week, here are the prompts used during the service with the corresponding verses that were read:

  • Pray that the Holy Spirit would convict the hearts of your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers of their need for Jesus (cf. John 16:8).
  • Pray that the collective Church in Provo will be faithful to present the Gospel, clearly, creatively, and compassionately (cf. Mark 9:38-40).
  • Pray that New Morning, the other local churches in our area, and you will become burdened about the lost in our community (cf. Romans 9:1-5).
  • Pray that you will be the one God sends and uses in reaching the lost with the Gospel (cf. Matthew 28:18-20).
