Prayer Focus: ‘For Mothers’ (8 May 2022)

Each week we focus our church family prayers on a topic or theme. This week, our prayer focus is for mothers.

‘Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you.’ (Psalm 71:6 ESV)

  • Thank the Lord for our mothers, and for giving us life through them
  • Pray for mothers in our church family to love and nurture their children to know Jesus, and for us to honour our mothers
  • Pray for strained relationships between mothers and children, that the gospel might bring healing
  • Pray for those women who may never be mothers, and for those who never knew their mothers, that they would know a better family among God’s people, and that we would show them a special love and care in Christ. 

Core Commitment 

Each week, we also pray through one of our church’s core commitments. This week’s core commitment is to training for gospel ministry.

‘By grace, we are committed to grow together in Jesus through training for gospel ministry.’ (see Ephesians 4:11-13)

Ask God to raise up gospel workers, and to give us the resources and the resolve to train them well, so that God’s people here on the Sunshine Coast, across Australia and all over the world may be built up in Christ.
