Prayer Focus: ‘Those facing the challenges of age’ (30 Aug 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 those facing the challenges of age.

‘… even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save.’ (Isaiah 46:4 ESV)

  1. Thank the Lord for the wisdom, experience, and demonstration of lifelong discipleship of so many among us
  2. Pray that as strength decreases, faith in Christ, appreciation of his love and hope of glory would increase
  3. Pray for compassionate and understanding carers 
  4. Pray for the safety of aged care home residents during the COVID-19 pandemic

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

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.
(Mark 12:30-31)

Please pray that we would be outward-looking, and that we would be concerned to love our neighbours and demonstrate the difference the gospel has made in our lives.
