Prayer Focus for the Week of October 11
Holy and Gracious Lord, day after day, we are inundated with bad news. So much so that, at times, it feels as though our world is about to come apart at the seams and unravel. When the badness threatens to overwhelm us, remind us of Your goodness. Remind us of Your blessings in our lives. Draw our eyes to those points of light that You’ve placed in our paths to remind us that there is still good in this broken world, that Your presence goes with us, and Your Spirit dwells in us. We give You thanks as we pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
 
 

Prayer Focus for the Week of October 18

God of All Creation, thank You for the beauty You have surrounded us with. May we take the time to stop and notice Your love notes to us – in the changing colors of the leaves, in the array of Fall flowers, in the crunch of fallen leaves beneath our feet, and in the songs the birds sing to us. Help us to notice the beautiful sunrises and sunsets that You paint for us, and let our hearts be full of thanks for all these things that You have so lovingly and carefully made. With grateful hearts, we pray in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
 
Prayer Focus for the Week of October 25
Heavenly Father, we thank You for the gift of Your Holy Spirit – Who fills us, comforts us, teaches us, and guides us. Help us to be sensitive to Holy Spirit’s leading so that we may be an obedient people. Help us to walk and live as Jesus walked and lived. Empower us to know, understand, and keep Your precepts. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
 
 

Prayer Focus for the Week of November 1

Merciful God, we thank You for all those who have gone before us in the faith, who have set godly examples for us in our lives. Thank You for the saints now among us that continue to model Your love and grace. We lift up to You all those brothers and sisters in Christ who still are being persecuted today because they hold fast to their faith in You, Lord. We ask You to protect them and to bring them freedom. We give You thanks as we pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
