Rocky Creek is uniting with other churches throughout Greenville to pray over our city on July 29, 2017.
Use this guide for your prayer time sometime during Saturday, July 29. Work with your church praying for certain streets or neighborhoods, or simply canvas your neighborhood when you are available on that day.
Here are 7 prayer points for you:
- Pray for the people in your area that God will open up their hearts to the gospel. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people [Eph. 1:18].
- Look for visual cues around you to prompt prayers for particular needs. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. [Luke 11:9]
- Pray against sinful strongholds in the lives of those within your community. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. [2 Cor. 10:4].
- Pray for intentional gospel work among other churches in the surrounding neighborhoods. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people [Eph. 6:18].
- Pray for authority figures and organizations in your community. I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. [1 Tim. 2:1-2].
- Pray for an open door to share Christ’s love this very day. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. [Col. 4:3].
- Pray that the Father would mobilize more workers for the harvest in this area. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” [Matt. 9:37-38].
