Call to Prayer: Jeremiah 17:14
Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.
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: “For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory, forever and ever. Amen”
Lord, it’s a very good thing that it’s your kingdom and your power. Because the empires we build and the power we throw around are deeply ineffective to hold back the horror and evil and sadness and brokenness we see firsthand. Not to mention the things that we may never see that go on in the shadows. We only need to look around to see the limits of the power and rule of men. Whether in government, or in medicine and science or in the day to day social workings all around us. We don’t have this. But your power is without a rival. Your kingdom is eternal…no beginning and no end. Nothing can stand against it. We are a vapor. You are eternal. We have a measurement. You are immeasurable. Our strength has definitive limits, but you are utterly limitless. There is nothing you cannot do. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Mission of the Church in the World: Pray for the people groups in Central Asia
All of the Persian and Turkic peoples who call Central Asia home are unreached. Most Central Asians have no knowledge of biblical Christianity and are unaware that the gospel is good news. Pray the millions of unreached people will hear and respond to the good news.
