2024 Prayer

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 JUNE, our prayer focus will be our PASTOR SEARCH COMMITTEE. We are praying and asking God to lead them as they represent our church in the search for our next Senior Pastor. As a part of this month, we are asking church members to pick one day a week to fast and spend special focused time in prayer for this committee. Here are specific things that you, your family, your BFG…and when we gather corporately…can pray for this month:

  • Pray that committee members will conduct their roles with the discernment, wisdom, and strength that can only come through the Holy Spirit.
  • Pray for powerful unity and oneness of spirit within the committee.
  • Pray for the committee to have no timetable but God’s. They must be determined to find God’s will in God’s time.
  • Pray for a hedge of protection around the committee and their families
  • Pray for God’s direction in helping the team members balance the committee role with their other priorities (family, work, and other ministry roles).
  • As they seek the church’s input, pray for the committee to have wisdom and discernment as to the unique characteristics and traits most needed for our church in a pastor.
  • Pray for God’s clear direction in how resumes are examined, and interviews are conducted. Ask God to bring the right person to the attention of the committee.
  • Pray for endurance for the committee. This will not be an easy process and will require many meetings and hours of work.
  • Pray for our church that we will continue to focus strongly and consistently on its present ministry and all that God is calling us to do as a church. We also pray that we will faithfully support our pastor search committee with our prayers and personal encouragement.
  • Pray that the committee and our church family will seek God’s will for the church above their own desires.

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.
