There are many different ways to pray. But among prayers for comfort, peace, and healing, there is also a type of prayer that leads to "breakthrough." So, what is a breakthrough prayer and how do we pray for one? As a community of faith, we are seeking a deeper level of spirituality and faith in Christ. We long to see children, youth and adults seeking the heart of God through more intentional discipleship. So, this summer we are inviting our entire church to pray the prayer below. You are invited to join us as we seek a breakthrough in this key area of our faith together.
Everlasting God, we know you are always with us. You have seen us through a difficult time of uncertainty and isolation, and by touching the hearts and minds of so many in our community of faith, you have enabled us to come together in new ways, allowing us to continue to worship you, to study your word and to serve those around us.
Inspire us to live more fully into our mission as a church: “We exist to reach, nourish, and serve the community so all may experience healing and new life through Jesus Christ.” May the work of the Adult Discipleship Team help each one of us to become more aware of our need for Jesus. Help this team to create a clear and effective discipleship pathway for people of all ages and stages of life.
Spark a deep desire in ALL OF US to be growing in our faith as disciples of Jesus Christ, being formed by the Word of God, and learning to integrate faith into all aspects of our lives. Holy Spirit, empower us now. Amen.
To be used at the end of the day, or first thing in the morning to review the previous day.
This prayer of review is a short reflection back over the day, recalling events and taking note of your feelings. The purpose is to become more aware of the ways in which God has been present to you, the times when the Holy Spirit was drawing you towards life.
