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

As we continue our sermon series, MEALS WITH JESUS, here’s how you can be praying:

READ: Luke 22: 14-20
When the hour came, he took his place at the table, and the apostles with him.He said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer, for I tell you, I will not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves;for I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.

● Praise God for the communion we share with each other in daily remembrance of our Lord’s everlasting love and invitation to live in eternal life.
● Ask the Lord to help us remember that Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Christ, as his body died for us and as his blood was shed for us so that we may live for Him.
● Pray for the church staff up through and beyond Easter. Pray for all the volunteers who serve selflessly every Sunday and above and beyond during Holy Week. Pray for enough people to complete the encirclement of our campus in prayer on Palm Sunday.
● Pray for those in the Congo who need food and shelter. Pray for all those in LA who are hungry and homeless.
● Pray for boldness to invite people to come to Easter worship services. Pray for those who come to make a commitment to Christ. Pray for those who make a commitment to Christ to get planted in a worshipping community.


If we but paused for a moment to consider attentively what takes place in this Sacrament, I am sure that the thought of Christ's love for us would transform the coldness of our hearts into a fire of love and gratitude.” (Angela of Foligno)

The resurrection completes the inauguration of God’s kingdom … it is the decisive event demonstrating that God’s kingdom really has been launched on earth as it is in heaven. The message of Easter is that God’s new world has been unveiled in Jesus Christ and that you’re now invited to belong to it.
(N.T. Wright)
