For A Greater Purpose

Prayer Guide

The Renovate prayer team encourages us to pray for the renovation of our hearts in the following ways:

1. Unity through the Gospel

Colossians 3:12-14 Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and...forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

  • Ask that we would be unified as we move forward with this capital campaign.
  • Pray that God would use us for His greater purposes as we demonstrate gospel-unity.
  • Pray that God would continue to renovate our hearts, our priorities, and our treasures.
  • 2. Authenticity in Community

    John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

  • Ask that God would enable us to be kind to one another as we negotiate our differing views.
  • Pray for the committees and our leadership, that they would keep God’s greater purposes in view.
  • Plead with God to make us “salty” people, gracious in our words—always eager for authentic community that is rooted in Christ alone.
  • 3. A Glad and Generous People

    Acts 2:46-47 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number…those who were being saved.

  • Pray that each of us would have glad and generous hearts.
  • Pray that God will renovate our hearts, so that we will use wisely the resources entrusted to us.
  • Ask that God would help us to be glad and thankful for his provisions for our church.
