Prayer Guide Starting May 25th

We hope this guide is a great addition to your daily time with God this week. We know that there’s power in focused, fervent prayer. Part of our goal right now is to focus the prayers of our entire church body in a specific direction each week. You can join with us by making a commitment to pray through this guide each day until next Monday when we release a new guide that will focus on a different topic.


  • Scripture

    We think it’s a great idea to start by reading the scriptures listed at the beginning out loud before praying through the rest of the guide. Thanks for helping us to ‘Make a Difference’ through prayer!


    For as the waters fill the sea, the earth will be filled with an awareness of the glory of the LORD. (Habakkuk 2:14)


    May your ways be known throughout the earth, your saving power among people everywhere. (Psalm 67:2)


    All the nations you made will come and bow before you, Lord; they will praise your holy name. (Psalm 86:9)


  • Prayer

    Lord Jesus,

    Your goodness, Your mercy and Your faithfulness are at work in our world today, and I give You thanks! You alone are worthy of glory and praise.


    Nothing surprises You. You aren’t shocked by what we’re facing. I ask You today to take what the enemy meant for evil and use it to accomplish Your perfect will. Your ways are not our ways, and You are not at a loss for what to do. Nothing is impossible for You.


    Glorify Your great name in our generation. Do wonders in the earth during this time. Reveal Your might power, and confirm Your word with miracles, signs and wonders. Pierce the darkness with Your light. Shine brighter than the fear of sickness, death or economic ruin. Add to Your church daily those that have a desire to know and follow You. Let this be a season of revival, hope and peace!


    Continue to draw this hurting world back to You.

    I am praying to you because I know you will answer, O God. Bend down and listen as I pray.  Show me your unfailing love in wonderful ways. By your mighty power you rescue those who seek refuge from their enemies.  Guard me as you would guard your own eyes. Hide me in the shadow of your wings. (Psalm 17:6-8)

  • Prayer

    Lord Jesus, 


    As many states in our nation begin to reopen, we ask for Your protection, Your guidance and Your wisdom.  Lead our government officials in what to do and when to do it.  Safeguard those that will be returning to work over the next few weeks.  Continue to cover those that have been working throughout this pandemic, and continue to provide for those who aren’t able to work or have lost jobs because of this crisis.  As we begin to go out into our communities, help us to be sensitive to Your voice, keep us safe and use us to speak life and hope into the people around us.  


    Minister to Your people and watch over them as many prepare to gather in Your house again for worship, and bless those who will be watching online.  Speak through men and women of God to give hope, encouragement and counsel.  Let Your joy, Your power and Your peace be present wherever people gather together to worship You!

  • Scriptures

    Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.  (Romans 12:4-5, NLT)


    Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God.  (1st John 4:7, NLT)


    Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.  Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.  Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. (Colossians 3:12-14, NLT)


  • Prayer

    Lord Jesus, 


    Thank you for my church family and for the many ways they’ve been a blessing to me.  I know that I didn’t get here by chance, but You specifically placed me in this body of believers.  Thank you for the incredible unity we have as a church.  Help us as we work together to advance Your kingdom.  Help us to be the light that leads our community to You.   Direct me in how You want me to use my time and my gifts to serve my church and to reach people in my city.


    Your Word tells us that we shouldn’t be ignorant of our enemy’s plan and the devices he uses.  His goal is to bring division.  He wants to cause us to become offended, divided and  distracted from our mission to love one another and to reach the lost.  I ask you to search my heart today and remove any bitterness or offense that might be there.  Help me to be patient with the faults of others just like I need them to be patient with mine.  Help me to keep no record of wrongs, to be quick to forgive, to think first of others instead of myself, and to do everything I can to be a blessing to those in my family of faith. I want to be a source of unity and strength to my church. 


    Keep us connected during this time when we’re distanced from one another.  You said others would know that we’re your disciples because of our love for one another.  Help us to come out of this season more unified, more committed and more appreciative of each other than we’ve ever been.  Give us a fresh revelation of just how much we need each other.


  • Additional Scriptures

    Here are some Scriptures that make great prayers!  We’ve placed them in first person so you can incorporate them directly into your devotional time:


    Help us to be of one mind, to sympathize with each other, and to love each other as brothers and sisters.  Help us to be tenderhearted, and to keep a humble attitude.  (1st Peter 3:8)

    Help me to refuse to be selfish and to stop trying to impress others.  Make me humble, and help me to think of others as better than myself.  Instead of just looking out for my own interests, help me to take an interest in others, too.  (Philippians 2:3-4)

    Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.  And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. (Hebrews 10:24-25)

    Lead us to serve one another, to be patient with one another, to honor one another above ourselves, to be devoted to one another, to forgive one another, to comfort to one another, and to encourage one another. (Galatians 5:13; Colossians 3:13; Romans 12:10; Ephesians 4:2; 1st Thessalonians 4:18; 1st Thessalonians 5:11)

  • Scriptures

    I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)


    And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.  No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)


    No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it. (1st Corinthians 10:13)


  • Prayer

    Lord Jesus, 


    Thank you for giving us the strength to overcome the struggles we face, even the battles we fight in our minds. Today, I come to pray for those that are fighting depression, anxiety and addiction. I ask that they would feel Your presence and Your peace right now. Help them realize how much You love them. Remind them today that You are for them… that they are not forgotten or forsaken. Silence the voice of the enemy that brings shame, guilt and condemnation. Show them the path to freedom and give them the grace and strength they need to walk it.  


    Remind those battling anxiety and depression today that they are not alone. Break through the darkness that surrounds them. Lift the heaviness, and restore hope and joy. Sustain them, deliver them and hold them up. Give them comfort in this present moment and hope for the future. Help them reach out to people that will speak words of wisdom, compassion and truth. Surround them with songs of deliverance and the joy of the Lord, and help them to continue to trust in You completely. Bring healing to their minds and bodies. Your Word tells us that when we are weak, then we are strong. When we can’t find strength within ourselves, we have to turn to You… the source of all strength. Help those battling depression and anxiety to do what feels impossible to them today, even if it’s as simple as getting out of bed and connecting with others.


    Lord, we know this time can be especially difficult for people who are struggling with addiction. Help them to know that their struggle doesn’t define who they are, and it doesn’t make them less valuable to You… or to us. Break their chains! Deliver them from temptation! Show them Your perfect will for their lives and help them carry it out. Bring them to the realization that true joy can only be found in You. Give them a revelation of how much You love them and how amazing your grace is. Transform their lives completely for Your glory, and give them a future better than they could ever have imagined. Take what the enemy meant for evil, and use it for good… for them and others.

    Our help comes from You, the One who made heaven and earth. You won’t let us stumble. The One who watches over us doesn’t slumber or sleep. You stand beside us as our protective shade. You keep us from harm, and You watch over our lives. You keep us as we come and go, both now and forever (Psalms 121)


    We wait patiently for You, and You hear our cries. You lift us up out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and mire. You set our feet on solid ground and steady us as we walk along. You give us a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to You. Many will see what You’ve done in our lives and be amazed. They will put their trust in You. Many are the joys of those you trust You. (Psalm 40:1-4)
