“Stewarding Thoughts” in 5 Tweets

“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).

Join us for out next “5th Sunday Prayer and Communion Service” on Sunday, June 29, 2014!

  1. Old Testament believers saw only the shadow of the reality we have in Jesus (cf. Hebrews 10:1). #NewMorningProvo
