Grace Church AZ Prayer Topics for Sunday, March 08, 2020

Praise and Thanksgiving

God we could never stop singing your praise and declaring how good you are to us! As far as the east is from the west, so far have you removed our transgressions from us. We are adopted as your sons and daughters and you have loved us as a Father and a friend. All of our hope for this life and the life to come rests fully on your goodness to us God. And we are convinced that your good news must spread!

Global Topics

Prayer for Abu Dhabi – and for the church everywhere to rise up with the gospel of peace as people increasingly live in fear the corona virus

National Topics

We pray that the witness of the church would be matched with compassion and concern for the downcast and the lowly. We pray for you to prosper the mercy ministries in this land, as those who are homeless find a way to get warm and fed and those who are lonely during these seasons find meaningful connection. We pray that as we serve these people, the beauty of the gospel would shine bright, that many would come to place their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and the light of the gospel would warm their hearts and your love for them would be their comfort.

Local Topics

We ask for your abundant favor this morning to Anchor Church in Gilbert. Fill Jason Hansen with your Spirit as He opens your Word today to preach and give the church your presence as it seeks to live out your mission in the southeast part of this city. Let unity ring out from their church and the joy of Christ be their experience while they work to see people come to know Christ.

Fellowship Topics

What a joy it is for us to be a part of this congregation! We are thankful for the gospel as the central anchor of the church.

We pray that your gospel will go forward in powerful ways as your Kingly rule exerts more and more influence in our lives. We pray for the Pipoly’s, who have an opportunity to show your generous love as they move toward adopting Nicholas, a child in the foster system who needs a home. We pray for Jayme Miller and the spiritual work you are doing in her to prepare her for possible long term missionary service. We pray for the team going to Rancho 3M in a week and for the work you will give them to do in Mexico.

We want to see you heal the hurting, God. We praise you for healing to Arlyne Bischof and Nicole Buxton and ask for more. Touch the sick, provide for the hurting in our congregation. Help us to suffer in a way that draws attention to your provision.

For all of these prayers, we lean on you and trust in your goodness. Give us ears to hear the Word today and to receive it as from you, in Jesus name, Amen.
