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 three part series in GROW, here’s how you can be praying this week about being with and being like God:

John 15:4 (The Message)
“Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. In the same way that a branch can’t bear grapes by itself but only by being joined to the vine, you can’t bear fruit unless you are joined with me.”


• Pray for the desire to dwell in God’s presence
• Pray for daily diligence to spend time with God and His word in prayer. As you pray for this and put this to action, you are being with God! Spending time in His Word is one of the most amazing ways to learn about His character and all of the ways in which we can grow to be more like Him.
• Pray about your own personal spiritual formation. Are you letting God form you? Ask God for Holy Spirit help in this ongoing spiritual process.
• Pray for our Nation’s social and political climate as it continues to be a topic of discussion in our daily lives. Ask God to show up in a way that only He can, and how we can be praying for one another in this trying time. Ask God to inspire us as a nation to be with Him every day, everywhere, with everyone.


“One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.” (Psalm 27: 4-5)

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8, ESV)
