Let's Keep Praying
For the last couple weeks I've been praying more for our world.
The brokenness is bubbling over.
The sin has been exposed.
The time has come for the church to stand for what is right.
Charity and I led a time of prayer for Coastline on Tuesday night. Here are some of the verses we read and prayed through as a church family.
I am so proud of our church engaging Scripture during these uncertain times. I'm so thrilled to see God's people seek God's word to bring hope to a hurting world.
Prayer for our Nation
How good and pleasant it is
when God’s people live together in unity! Psalm 133:1
My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:2–3
Prayer for Identity
So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27
The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15
Prayer of repentance
Keep your servant also from willful sins;
may they not rule over me.
Then I will be blameless,
innocent of great transgression.
May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:13-14
Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10
Prayer for wisdom
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,
and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10
