Call to Prayer: Daniel 9:19
O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.”
Time of Gratitude
“Give thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Eph. 5:20).
Take this time to give thanks to God for three (3) specific things from the last 24 hours.
Praying the Lord’s Prayer: “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”
Jesus, tie us to things that breed faithfulness and obedience in our hearts. We are people who do not follow well. You lead us, but we go our own way. Tie us to the word, the Spirit, to each other. Bind us close to your side, knowing we are truly little children who need their Father to show them where to go. Thank you for being our Father. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Scripture Reading from the Sermon Series: Acts 2:42-47
- How do you see the hospitality of the church in this passage?
- How might God be calling you into obedience today?
Praying the Mission of Exchange: “Equip the People of God”
Ministry of the Church: Marriage Ministry
Thank you for the marriages that are represented at Exchange. We pray that personal relationships with Jesus would flourish, and that the clear outflowing of that would be growing, healthy marriages. Thank you Jesus for the faithful shepherding of Rick & Beth McKoy over this ministry. Please give them continued strength, wisdom, and creativity as they seek to bring healing and hope to the couples struggling among us.
Commission to Serve the King:
But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.
