Prayer

Weekly Church Prayer Focus

  • Living Hope Church, Fayetteville, AR and their lead pastor, Matt Gray - Pray for the expansion of their children’s ministry beginning in January; for continued financial provision as they are bringing on a new part time pastor working toward ordination; for the many unsaved people visiting their church regularly. Pray for salvations!

Nov/Dec Prayer Points

  • Pray the upcoming holiday season, that we would all be open to sharing our faith and inviting our friends and family to come hear the gospel in our services.
  • Pray for us all to continue engaging together as a church this year:
  • Daily being in the Word
  • Weekly attending our Sunday gathering
  • Monthly reaching out to unbelievers with the gospel.
  • Pray that we would draw on God’s grace to apply the preached word from studying Esther and then the coming Advent series to close out the year.
  • Pray for our national leaders that they would govern our nation with godly wisdom and avoid worldly wisdom to direct their decisions. Also, pray that revival would come to our nation, and we would all keep our eyes "fixed on Jesus."
