April 22 Prayer Guide

 

A MESSAGE FROM INGRAM

Ladies,

I hope that you will plan to join us for our Women’s Ministry online weekly prayer time. We are reminded in Acts that the believers gathered for teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayer: “And they devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42).

I really look forward to gathering together this way to pray for our church, our nation, and for one another.

In order for this to go smoothly here are a few suggestions:

  1. Click on the link above. This will take you to the online meeting. Please MUTE your microphone when you are not praying aloud. The Zoom software will pick up background noise that seems minor to you, but can be very distracting to others on the conference call. (You should find the microphone/mute button on the bottom left of your screen).
  1. Be mindful as you pray for individuals that we pray from the list. These are people who have given us permission to pray for them aloud. Please do not add anyone from our congregation to the list. Rather share that with me privately, and I will confirm with them that we have permission to pray for them by name.
  1. This week we will use Psalm 91 as our starting place, if you want to look that up ahead of time. We will follow the ACTS model we have been using for Congregational Prayer on Monday nights:

Adoration – Psalm 91 – these are words of praise and acknowledgement of God as our Creator, Savior, and King!

Confession – Psalm 39 – confess whatever is appropriate for you and your attitude.

Thanksgiving – give thanks for what God is doing during this time in our hearts and lives; thank Him for His provision.

Supplication – lift up requests to God for one another and ourselves.

I will start each section and move us from one to the next. I invite you to pray aloud but you do not have to! Your presence is a blessing whether you pray out loud or silently. There may be times of silence – that is FINE, WONDERFUL, NORMAL! Do not be anxious as we sit together in silence!

I look forward to joining our hearts together in prayer and lifting our requests to our heavenly Father and to His throne room of GRACE.

Hebrews 4:14-16

14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Blessings,

Ingram
