Prayers for Providence

On June 7, we had a day of fasting and prayer for the church.  We met that evening and prayed together, taking turns bringing specific requests to the Lord.  Several people have requested that I post these requests on the blog so that everyone could continue to pray about them.  I thought it was a great idea.  May the Lord make us a people who are mighty in prayer.  Here is the list:


Please pray that the Lord would humble us with a deep sense of our dependence upon Him. 
Please pray that the Lord would forgive us for sins we have committed.
Please pray that we would have hearts of forgiveness for those who have sinned against us.
Please thank the Lord for the gospel and the life that we have in Christ.
Please pray that the Lord would grant us the desire and ability to walk in a manner worthy of the gospel.
Please pray that the Lord would work in us to promote and maintain the unity of the body.
Please pray that the Lord would give us hearts and minds eager to extend the gospel of Christ to the lost and hurting world around us.
Please thank the Lord for all that He has done and is doing in our church.
Please pray that the Lord would give wisdom to the leadership of the church.
Please pray that the Lord would grant us all to grow in Christlikeness.
Please pray that the Lord would cause the body to build itself up in love.
Please pray that the Lord would give us a God-centered view of our trials.
Please pray that He would use our trials for our good and His glory.
Please pray that the Lord would grant us a renewed vigor to pursue Christ in His Word.
Please pray that the Lord would make us a people of prayer. 
Please pray that the Lord would give us a renewed passion to worship Him alone.
