Grace Church AZ Prayer Topics for Sunday, September 01, 2019

Praise and Thanksgiving

Psalm 34:8 – “O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.”

Father, we profess from our hearts that You are good; You have saved us Christians from the Your wrath for our sins… and You have shown kindness and patience to those who have not yet placed their faith in Your Son Jesus Christ. You are the Christian’s refuge… only in Christ is their safety from Your holy anger against sin. Grace Church was officially established 10 years ago… Thank YOU Father for sustaining this church; Thank You for being a refuge to this body and because of Your faithfulness, we have truly tasted and seen that You are good!

May You draw more people to know You as good and as their refuge.

Global Topics

Father, please draw people from the country of Israel. As tensions grow between Israel and Hezbollah, we pray that you would intervene to bring peace; please save men, women, and children who have access to your Old Testament; May Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world for all who believe, shine brightly off the Old Testament pages in the hearts of Israelis. May Your Spirit bring circumcision of the heart and, by so doing, bring change from the inside out.

National Topics

O Lord, another shooting in our country yesterday. Our hearts break for the lives taken in Midland & Odessa, TX. We pray for You to bring the kind of comfort that can only come from Your touch, as family, friends, and loved ones grieve. We lift up those injured; Father bring healing of kinds… Your peace, Your comfort, Your healing is needed in West Texas; please show Your goodness in this horrible event, for You are a refuge. Your gospel is renewing this broken world; So we pray, Come Lord Jesus Come.

Local Topics

Father, we pray for a revival in Arizona. We thank You for the many Bible-loving, gospel-preaching churches in our state. We ask that You would continue to build unity across denominations and protect AZ pastors/keep them faithful men of qualified character; today/even now, Your Word is opened & the glory of Christ is being proclaimed throughout this state… bless the preaching of Your Word! Awaken souls and give a fresh taste of Your goodness throughout the West & East Valley, in Tucson & Yuma, and up in Flagstaff and Sedona.

Fellowship Topics

We pray You be with Chris & Tara as they travel this week, Give them rest & let them be productive. And we thank You for all those in the new members class; We look forward to celebrating with those You add to this body. We ask that you feed us now by the preaching of Your Word; Speak through Jamie and give us ears to hear.
