Pray For Your Local Church

Pray For Your Local Church by Keith Cook

"For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding," Colossians 1:9

Pray for your local church. We are never to forsake praying, attending, and supporting our local church, no matter how many other ministries we are associated with. Take a moment to pray for your church right now. Thank God for a good local church and the freedom to assemble together as believers. Thank Him for the comforts and resources you have at your church.

Here are some things to specifically pray for your church, not just today, but on a regular basis.

Prayer for your Local Church - Call out the name of your church and thank God for it. Pray for all the activities of your local church. Pray that they are consistent with God's perfect will for a church in this generation.

Pray for the Staff at your Church - Pray for all the key leaders by name or by position if you are not familiar with each person. If the Lord gives you a promise or word of encouragement for them, why not share that with them.

Pray for Families at your Church - Pray for your friends, that they will be strong and consistent in their walk for Christ.

Pray for Parents at your Church - Pray for wisdom and encouragement.

Pray for Singles and Couples at your Church - Pray for purity and holiness in the personal relationships and careers.

Pray for all the Youth at your Church - Pray for protection and for the Holy Spirit to begin to call out teens who are ready and willing to serve the Lord.

Pray for all the Children at your Church - Pray for development and protection of these young children as they grow and mature in life.

Pray for Senior Adults at your Church - Pray that they will not grow weary in doing good, and that they will not stop being role models and examples to younger generations.

Pray for a Harvest of Souls at your Church - Pray for people to come to the Lord through the ministries of your local church.

Pray against the Schemes of the Devil on your Church - The Devil wants to discredit your church and have it fall back into a lukewarm and irrelevant place in your community. Prayer is a great weapon that can be used to defeat the enemy and arm the saints. Now is the time to rise to the highest plane and pray, pray, pray.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for your Local Church. Ask God for His Blessings upon your Church Staff, Families, Parents, Singles, Couples, Youth, Children, Senior Adults, and Outreach Events.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The Finances of Team as they boldly go out for Jesus Christ. Pray that all their needs will be met at home and for the projects they are working on.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.
