Grace Church AZ Prayer Topics for Sunday, June 23, 2019

Praise and Thanksgiving

Isaiah 53:10–12 — Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 11 Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.

Praise you, Father, for sending Jesus down into the pit of our sin and suffering, and for making Him our substitute – putting Him to grief in our place! We worship you that we are now counted righteous in Him and are His eternal reward. And He will lose none of those you have given Him, because He always lives to make intercession for us! Hallelujah, our Father!

As we pray for others to come into this freedom and to share this inheritance with us, please give us your Spirit so that we may not say the “amen” to things that are not truly on our hearts before you!

Global Topics

Tensions are growing between the US and Iran. If it please you Father, work to maintain peace so that your church may continue its rapid growth in that land. If war should come, please bless your children on both sides of the combat to demonstrate the love of Christ and be used in the salvation of many souls.

National Topics

Redeemer Arlington, Pastor Eric Simmons. An Acts 29 church that preaches Christ in the Arlington area. As their weekly meditation at present focuses on the Holy Spirit, please pour out your Spirit on them in great power and enable them to testify boldly of Christ in their neighborhood and beyond. Please also bless Pastor Chris’s and Tara’s fellowship as they worship at that church today.

Local Topics

We cry out to you for Peoria, Father, with so many lost souls who are careless about eternal things and are drawing nearer and nearer to the judgment but are without hope and without God in this world. Please take pity on them in their blindness, deafness and deadness, Father, and use your people in this area to quicken them to new life in Christ. Make your Gospel powerful and effective to that end, Lord!

Fellowship Topics

1) Please refresh Pastor Jamie during this brief break from his regular duties in the church. Bless Josh and Makenzie (Jamie and Andrea’s daughter) as they begin their married life – make their home a place where you dwell richly by your Spirit.
2) Work through your Word now to make us a more faithful presence and a more fruitful community. By your Spirit, make us a praying people, Father, and use our prayers to do more than we could ever ask or imagine, all for your glory!
