Pray for our Missionaries in other parts of the world. Pray for sensitivity to the culture. Pray for wisdom with language issues. Pray for physical and spiritual safety. Pray for family dynamics, whether close to home or far away.
Pray for the spiritual temperament of HMC. Pray for God to revive us and refine us so that we burn hot for our heavenly Father. Pray that we may never be accused of being lukewarm. Ask God to give us singleness of heart and open minds to understand His Word so that our hearts are on fire for our great God.
Pray for HMC in the world. Pray that we would be known as distinct from the world in love and holiness, even as we engage outsiders. Pray that many among us would share the gospel this week—and see people come to know Christ! Pray that if persecution comes, we would remember to love, not curse, and to pray for our enemies.
Pray for our Behind-the-Scenes Workers. Thank God for every preschool and nursery worker/coffee/facilities/mission planning/bylaw/policy/finance/discernment/personnel/team member/custodian etc. devoted to serve. Pray that God would bless them for their obedience and generosity and keep them in an attitude of humility.
Pray for Men in Action. Pray that this ministry will build our men in their faith. Pray that they will be in right relationship with God and each other. Pray for men to love their wives as Christ loves the church, and to instruct their children with patience. Pray that they would hold each other accountable and support and encourage each other.
