Prayer Focus: ‘The Upcoming Federal Elections’ (15 May 2022)

Each week we focus our church family prayers on a topic or theme. This week, our prayer focus is the upcoming federal elections.

‘“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;’ (Daniel 2:20–21 ESV)

  • Thank the Lord that he alone remains the King of Kings over all the earth
  • Pray for the upcoming elections, that those elected would love truth, justice and righteousness
  • Pray for continued freedom in our land to proclaim Christ and follow him 

Core Commitment 

Each week, we also pray through one of our church’s core commitments. This week’s core commitment is to loving our neighbours with the gospel in mind.

‘By grace, we are committed to declare to the world that Jesus Christ is Lord through a gospel-minded love and concern for our neighbours in our local community.’ (see Mark 12:30-31)

Pray that we would truly love our local neighbours by showing them the gospel in our words and actions.
