Prayer Focus: ‘Our Pastors and Gospel Workers’ (26 Jul 2020)

Each week we focus our worship service and Grace Community Group prayers on a topic or theme. This week, our prayer focus is for our pastors and gospel workers

‘We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labour among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work.’ (1 Thessalonians 5:12–13 ESV)

  1. Thank the Lord for the pastors and gospel workers he has raised up here at Grace and further afield
  2. Ask for God’s help to love and care for them as we should, encouraging them by our own eagerness to grow in Christ
  3. Pray for their personal growth as disciples of Jesus, their protection from sin and temptation and the wellbeing of their families
  4. Pray for the energy and faith they need to love us by speaking the truth to us, and to equip us to follow Jesus through their ministry

Each week, we also pray through one of the core commitments from our church vision statement. This week’s commitment is to pray together.

By grace, we are committed to grow together in Jesus
through regularly gathering to pray together.’
(1 Timothy 2:1, 8)

Please pray that we would be a church that prays with and for each other.
