Westbury 20/20 Prayer Guide

Westbury 20/20 Prayer Guide


Our Westbury 20/20 team, made up of 11 church members and our ministry staff, is prayerfully working to evaluate our church's ministry.  Sometime this summer, we hope to bring some proposals before the church that will position us for greater and more effective ministry in the future.  But right now, we need your prayers!  I've written the following prayer guide to give us all practical ways to seek the Lord during these days.  For every day of the week, I've included a Scripture and a suggested prayer theme.  Will you join us?
Monday: Ephesians 4:14-16. Jesus is the Head of our church.  Ask Him to show us His will so that we can follow Him in the plans He has for us.
Tuesday: 2 Chronicles 1:7-10. Like Solomon, let’s ask God for wisdom to lead His people well.

Wednesday: 1 Corinthians 2:10-16.  Pray for the Spirit to reveal to us the mind of Christ, so we can know how He sees our church and our mission field. 

Thursday: Habakkuk 3:2.  Pray for God to revive our church by the awesome power He has used to awaken His people in days gone by. 

Friday: Matthew 6:25-34.  Pray that God would transform us into the kind of church that sets aside our ordinary concerns about earthly, temporal things and seeks first His Kingdom with passion.

Saturday: Mark 6:34.  Pray that God would give us His heart of love and compassion for those who are without Him, sheep without a Shepherd, and that this would motivate us to reach them with His Gospel.
Sunday: Psalm 139:23-4.  Ask God to give our church a humble spirit that longs for the transformation He wants to bring about in us.  Pray that we would set aside our prideful tendency to cling to what is comfortable, and to embrace what is necessary to bring about growth.
