Lately at Bethel
People have been serving, worshiping, growing, and following Jesus together.
Begin with Prayer
At church on Sunday we covered the first of five missional practices to intentionally introduce people to Jesus. We made a list of 3-5 people we long to see commit to faith in Christ. If you are struggling with how to pray for them here are some ideas to get you started. (from: www.covchruch.org/bless/begin-with-prayer)
- Pray that ___________ will become thirsty for God (John 7:37-39).
- Pray that the Father will draw ________ to Jesus (John 6:44-45)
- Pray that ___________ will become open to God’s truth (2 Corinthians 4:4-6).
- Pray that _____ will become receptive to God’s grace (Romans 3:23-24; Titus 3:4-7).
