READ - Acts 2:42-47
Acts 2:42-47 New International Version (NIV)The Fellowship of the Believers42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke breadin their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
Thank God that he has given the church the words of Jesus and the apostles teaching in the bible. Pray in this way……
That with the help of the Holy Spirit the church would be devoted to the teaching of the scriptures
Pray for those who teach the bible week by week. Ask for spiritual understanding and wisdom as they study and prepare. Pray that they might faithfully communicate the message of the word of God.
Ask that we would be devoted in love and fellowship to one another. Pray for meaningful relationships and that the Holy Spirit would extend that welcome and warmth to those who come among us.
Pray for a growing commitment to prayer within the church family, that we will ask with believing hearts and be blessed with the wisdom to know what we should ask for and how we should pray.
Pray that as a church we would be a conscious of the needs of others within the family and of those outside the fellowship.
Pray that we will be moved by compassion to meet those needs whether emotional or material where possible. Ask that as a church family we will be marked by a generous spirit and known for our love.
Pray simply that God would grow the church and add to our number those who are being saved.
Pray finally, for those who are in need, the sick and the bereaved asking for God’s help and his peace.
