Prayer Guide

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.

Psalm 139:7-10

Weekly Prayer Guide

Here’s how you can be drawing near to God as you pray this week…

READ:
Matthew 10: 1, 8-14 (NLT)
Jesus called his twelve disciples together and gave them authority to cast out evil spirits and to heal every kind of disease and illness… “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, and cast out demons. Give as freely as you have received! Don’t take any money in your money belts—no gold, silver, or even copper coins. Don’t carry a traveler’s bag with a change of clothes and sandals or even a walking stick. Don’t hesitate to accept hospitality, because those who work deserve to be fed. Whenever you enter a city or village, search for a worthy person and stay in his home until you leave town. When you enter the home, give it your blessing. If it turns out to be a worthy home, let your blessing stand; if it is not, take back the blessing. If any household or town refuses to welcome you or listen to your message, shake its dust from your feet as you leave.”


PRAY:
· See yourself as a modern-day disciple in these verses. Jesus has given you authority, to go and proclaim the reality of the Kingdom of God. Pray for a fresh passion to draw near those to whom God sends you. Ask God to help you assume the responsibility of having authority.

· Pray that as you encounter the lost, you’re able to speak truth and love into their lives. Ask God, as you read scripture, to plant it deeply in your heart and mind so that you can recall it and speak it in these God appointed times. Prepare yourself for the unexpected! “But the Advocate,the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name,will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”(John 14:26)

· Ask God to bring to mind someone on whom you’ve given up. Who is a “lost cause” in your life? Ask God to renew your faithfulness to this person. Go seek this person. Pray that this person will be transformed in a personal relationship with Jesus.

· Ask God to give you understanding about how to “give freely as you have received”. How is He speaking to you in this phrase? Also pray that BAC, as a body, would likewise be given this understanding and impetus.

· Sometimes we can get lost too! On those days where you can’t help but feel like you’re straying or you’ve lost sight of His path for you, pray for guidance. “I have strayed like a lost sheep. Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten your commands.” (Psalm 119:176)


Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send?And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8)

The frontiers of the kingdom of God were never advanced by men and women of caution." - J. Oswald Sanders
