Come and pray with us this Sunday in room 5 (kitchen)! Stop in for 5 min or join for the whole time. We will begin with evangelism-focused prayer at 10:00 AM (see requests below) and move on to general prayer for our church at 10:30 AM. We will wrap up by 10:50 AM.
Can't join us on Sunday? Would you set aside time individually or in your small group to pray for the following requests?
Prayer Points for This Week:
1. Thank the Lord for all of the recent activity related to Explore God Chicago. Over 500 churches have already committed to come together to share the gospel in January. The four launch events last week were inspiring and effective. Pray for ideas, plans, and good intentions to blossom into real actions and bear much fruit in these churches. Pray for Christians in these churches to be stirred by the Holy Spirit to participate as pastors and leaders take risks and make asks.
2. Thank the Lord for great progress in planning for the next phases of Explore God at Crossroads. Plans for training and prayer events in the coming weeks and months are taking shape. God is on the move and opening doors for outreach in area prisons and jails, assisted living locations, shelters, libraries, and similar venues. He is also preparing the soil in our families, neighborhoods, and workplaces. Pray for wisdom, opportunity, and courage to pursue those plans that God wants us to pursue.
3. Pray for people you know who need a relationship with Jesus. Pray for people you may not yet know but that God will bring into your life in the coming months. Pray for opportunities to build relationships with those who have questions about God.
4. Pray for everyone at Crossroads to find a way to participate in this rare opportunity to partner with churches across Chicagoland to hold out the hope of the gospel. Leading a group, hosting a group, inviting people, joining the prayer effort - there is something for everyone.
If you are committed to praying for these requests in some way, would you let me know how you are doing so? This will help us as we consider how best to encourage and support you in prayer!
