Five Days of Prayer

Five days of Prayer*  

We want to be a church rooted in prayer.  If you’d like to be part of making this happen below are five categories for prayer of what we hope to see God do and who we want to be.

The Inspiration:
“Apart from me you can do nothing” – Jesus,  The Gospel according to John 15

“If then you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”
-Jesus, The Gospel according to Matthew 7

Day 1 Allebach Family  2 Corinthians 4:6-18; Acts 1:8
-Wholeness in Christ: Spiritual, relational, emotional, and physical health
-Power and Competency in Ministry

Day 2  The Team  Ephesians 4:1-16; Philippians 4:14-20
-Unity, commitment, sacrifice, love, and power
-Diverse mix of people to reflect and serve Worcester
-Financial & prayer support

Day 3  Direction  James 1:5-8; Luke 9:18-25;
-Who to serve and how to do so
-Our efforts in reaching out and pursuing maturity within
-Connecting to specific populations: marginalized, academic, different “collars,” ethnic groups, medical community, etc

Day 4 Worcester  Acts 2:37-47; Jeremiah 29:4-7
-A movement of the Holy Spirit leading to salvation and transformation
-Flourishing of the city (spiritual, social, cultural, economic etc)

Day 5  The Church to be  Psalm 126
-Worship: we delight in God’s presence and reflect his worth
-Depth: Christian faith reorients the whole person
-Friendship: the grace of God creates a new relational world
-Outward: we love our neighbors in word and deed
-Multiplication: leaders, ministries, and churches multiply

*These outline the major areas for which we are praying in this phase of beginning the church.  The associated scriptures relate to the theme of the day and give shape to these prayers.
