The Power of Prayer
We know that prayer is powerful, and we want to be a praying church. Throughout this coming year, we will have a special prayer focus for each month that we can pray about together.
For the month of February, our prayer focus will be for OUR COMMUNITES. FBC Allen is a regional church, and we want to pray for the communities represented in our church. Here are specific things that you, your family, your BFG…and when we gather corporately…can pray for this month:
- Pray for the families in our communities… Pray for the bond between parents and children, that homes would be nurturing and supportive environments. Pray for God’s peace and understanding to be present in every home, bringing unity, joy, and resilience to each family member.
- Pray for the schools (public, private, and homeschooled) in our communities… Asking for God's guidance, protection, and blessings on students, teachers, and staff.
- Pray for our sister churches in our communities… Pray they would be beacons of hope, love, and faith as they share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
- Pray for the safety and peace of our communities… Pray that God would bring unity, understanding, and compassion so that all residents can live free from fear and experience the fullness of God’s hope and peace.
- Pray for the first responders in our communities… Pray for God’s strength, protection, and wisdom as they tirelessly serve our communities.
- Pray for our local government leaders in our communities… Pray for God’s wisdom, discernment, and grace to guide their decisions and actions.
- Pray for FBC Allen’s witness in our communities…Pray that we will be vessels of God’s light and carriers of the hope found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our communities.
- Pray for spiritual renewal in our communities…Pray for a spiritual awakening that transforms hearts and draws people closer to God. Pray that it would begin in us.
Our hope is for you to pray for 2-3 specific items each day. As you see God working and answering these prayers, we would love to hear about it.
