Prayer Focus: ‘For the Proper Use of Scripture’ (30 Jan 2022)

Each week we focus our church family prayers on a topic or theme. This week, our prayer focus is for the proper use of Scripture.

‘All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.’ (2 Timothy 3:16–17 ESV)

  • Thank God for the Bible, which has been written and preserved to make us wise for salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ
  • Pray that we would hear, understand, learn and consider what the Bible teaches, so that through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit we would grow to greater maturity in Christ
  • Ask for the Lord’s blessing upon his Word as it is read and taught in our worship services and Grace Community Groups, as we begin our new series in Colossians together.

Core Commitment 

Each week, we also pray through one of our church’s core commitments. This week’s core commitment is to gospel-minded love for our neighbours.

By grace, we are committed to declare to the world that Jesus Christ is Lord, through engaging ordinary people outside the church with the person and claims of Jesus.
(see Matthew 24:14, 1 Corinthians 9:22, 1 Peter 3:15)

Please pray that we would have courage to talk to our family, friends and neighbours about Jesus.
