Praying for Your Church ~ 30 Days, 30 Minutes, 30 Prayers

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. ~ James 5:16 NIV

Teri Lynne Underwood, from Pleasing to You invites you to join her in making a commitment to pray for your church.

I've included the introduction, so that you can hear Terri's heart...

As a pastor's wife, I often find myself praying for God to bless our church, to grant our leaders wisdom, and to bind us together with one heart. And yet, I believe it is not just those of us who are called into or marry into pastoral ministry that are called to pray fervently for the Bride of Christ. I imagine though, that many are uncertain how or what to pray for their local faith fellowship.

In studying the Book of Acts, I realized that much emphasis is given to prayer...and that, I am convinced, is a large factor in the enormous impact those believers had in spreadint "The Way." So, I began to ask God to show me how to pray effectively for my church using the early church as an example.
This project is a result of those prayers. The idea is to devote a minute to each prayer. This can be done cumulatively in order to build up to devoting 30 minutes a day to praying for your church or simply as an addition to your prayer list daily ~ devoting a minute to a specific prayer for your church. However you choose to use this, I pray that God will bless your desire to pray for your church...and bless your church as you pray.
