Last week our staff prayer was led by Becky Shipe. She brought this for our team to pray through as we just had finished preaching the book of Philippians so this was a creative idea. I'm grateful for Becky letting me post this on here because it was an engaging prayer time for our staff.
STAFF PRAYER | PHILIPPIANS PRAYER PROMPTS
1. Philippians 3:1 – “Rejoice in the Lord!”
Tell God how good He is and how much you love Him. Take time to rejoice in who God is, what He’s done for us, and what He is presently doing in our life, our ministry, and at Coastline.
2. Philippians 1:4-5 – “I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel…”
Pray with joy for our partners in ministry: those on our ministry teams, our outreach partners, other churches in Ventura, Transformation Ministries.
3. Philippians 1:9-11 – “And this is my prayer…”
Pray specifically for someone you know that
their love would abound more in the knowledge of Christ
they would be able to discern what’s best
they would be pure and blameless
they would be filled with the fruit of righteousness
4. Philippians 4:6 – “...in everything by prayer and petition, present your requests to God.”
Surrender your anxieties to God and ask Him to intervene in whatever personal or ministry situation you are anxious about.
Thank Him in advance (and in faith) for how He is going to answer your prayer.
