Prayer Focus for the Week of May 22
Holy Shepherd, with the coming of summer also comes an increase in travel, and so we ask that You would watch over our flock, whether they remain at home or travel to other places. Keep us close to You in everything we do, give us a hunger to stay in Your Word, and protect us all, wherever we may be. Wherever life finds us, remind us Whose we are and help us to be ambassadors for Your kingdom, walking in Your light and love through the power of Your Holy Spirit. We ask these things in the name of Your Son and thank You for hearing our prayers. Amen.
Prayer Focus for the Week of May 29
Heavenly Father, we invite You into the everyday and the mundane moments of our lives. We invite You into the unusual and the extraordinary moments of our lives. In every moment, we need You, Lord. Let Your Holy Spirit move in us and through us, sweeping through our church as a wind of refreshment, blowing away the dust from our souls and leaving behind renewal, reinvigoration, and restoration. Let all that we do be done for Your glory, and help us to not grow weary in well doing*. Please continue to lead and guide us as we seek Your will. We give You thanks and praise in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Prayer Focus for the Week of June 5
Loving God, we ask You to be with our Acts Alivers and their advisors this week as they serve as Your hands, feet, and heart in Pennsylvania. Help each of them to experience You in a personal way during work camp, and give them strength as they seek to help others in Your name. Please keep them safe each day, and let Your love freely flow through them and out to all those they encounter. In the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, we pray this with thanks. Amen.
Prayer Focus for the Week of June 12
Merciful God, we give You thanks and praise for all that You are, and we are grateful that You alone are God. We lift up to you those who have been marginalized, those who are oppressed, and those who are outcast. Give us understanding and wisdom where they are lacking, and help us to give a voice to the voiceless. Let us be instruments in this world of Your healing, peace, and grace. Help us to follow wherever You may lead, with holy boldness and courage, knowing that our strength comes from You alone. We give You thanks and praise in Jesus’ name. Amen.
