If you would like to be part of this team and truly commit to pray for the needs that are sent, please contact the Church office.

A few reminders from Sunday's Sermon - Pray For One Another:
How we can pray for one another:
Consistency: (1) Keep a list, (2) Consistent prayer time, (3) Use spare time for constant prayer
Scripture can fuel our prayer: Examples: Fighter Verse (Praise), Psalm 23 (Protection, Guidance) Model Prayers (Matthew 6, Luke 11, John 17), Scripture Memory.
Pray with intentionality (Phil 1:9-11 - "And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that come through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.")
The benefits of praying for one another:
It Reinforces the Gospel
It Builds Unity (Hearts knit together, with the same purpose, founded in the Gospel)
It Declares our Trust in God
How can you have a more deeply abiding concern for the spiritual health of your brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the week?
It takes Time. Investment. Trust. Gospel. Build honest relationships
Home Groups / Men’s and Women’s Meetings /January Equip Classes
If you are struggling with Sin, Seek accountability, DAILY if necessary.
Start meeting with a Christian Friend, and commit to pray for one another
If someone seeks you out, be faithful, don’t drop the ball.
Consistency in prayer -> Set aside time.
