Prayer For Community Outreach
Precious God, I thank You because Your Spirit is upon this church. Father, You have anointed and commissioned us to bring the good news to the humble and afflicted! You have sent me to bind up the wounds of the broken-hearted, to proclaim release to the captives and freedom to prisoners. Father in heaven, let Your Spirit remain in this house and amongst Your people so that we can touch the hearts of men; this is our prayer, Amen.
Almighty God, we give thanks for your unconditional love. As Jesus called the disciples into community, so too are we called to be in communion with one another. As we go about our work of healing in your name, guide us in forgiving and celebrating one another. We acknowledge that we are part of the whole body of Christ, and all our gifts are essential to building your kingdom on earth. Be with us as we strive to be a more perfect community. Amen.
Father God, thank you for providing your son Jesus Christ as the example of how we should live. Holy Spirit, invade our schools. Break down barriers that divide and isolate our students. Unite administration and faculty. Stand guard at the doors and blow through the halls. Be the friendship and acceptance that every student longs for. Be the firm yet loving authority every teacher needs. Our classrooms belong to you, God, in the name of Jesus! Amen.
Lord, I thank You for saving faith and Your promise of eternal life. Make me ever grateful for these
blessings and increase my willingness to serve You, especially to witness to Your gracious love for
all sinners. I pray dear Lord, support me with Your power as I witness to others. Too often I have
missed opportunities to speak for You. Forgive me where I have failed. Help me see opportunities for
witnessing, and give me the courage to speak up. Increase my concern for lost souls and my desire
to witness; strengthen me according to my great need. Lord, I often don't know what to say, but You
know. I am weak and afraid, but You are strong. Make Your love my love; Your words my words; and
Your strength my strength. Help me speak the right word at the right time, and with all Your children
on earth help me to go forth to new victories for You. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
Blessed Lord God, who by Your Son commanded me to go into all the world and preach the
Gospel to every creature, increase my faith and zeal that I may more earnestly desire the salvation
of all people. I confess that often my heart is cold and my ears are dull to Your mission cry. I have
not deserved to be called to Your church and privileged to become Your messenger. Forgive my
indifference for Jesus' sake, and by Your Holy Spirit fill my heart with a burning zeal to bring the light
of the everlasting Gospel to unbelieversboth at home and abroad. Give me a loving heart, sincerity
of speech, and piety of life to adorn my Christian profession of faith. May I never by ungodly conduct
or unbecoming speech give unbelievers an excuse for criticizing the Gospel of Christ. Knowing that
this world is drawing to a close, may I by Your Spirit's prompting support the mission program of
my church with my personal witness, my earnest prayers, and my sacrificial gifts. Grant that through
me many may be saved from the kingdom of darkness for the kingdom of Your light, through Jesus
Christ, Your Son and our Lord. Amen.
WE PRAY FOR THE PATH OUR FAITH WILL TAKE
God shapes our hearts by the things we pray for.
The beginning point of prayer for Outreach is to focus on the point of it all the Lost and those in Need. Prayer is the path to all successful Mission and Outreach. Prayer can happen without doing Outreach, but Outreach will never happen without prayer. As we pray God will sensitize us to the plight, pain and struggles of those who need our assistance. Those who do not pray for His guidance might only be irritated and lose patience as they encounter the lost and those in need. It is only as we pray and follow the path of our faith that we learn to reach out in word and action. Only then will we truly be an Outreach Community of Faith.
We ask for Your guidance and we do so in Your name, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Eternal God, You told Jeremiah not to find fault in his age, you told him to not say I am only a youth' because everywhere You sent him, he will go, and whatever You command him, he shall speak. Lord I pray that the youth in every church do not feel inferior due their age, instead please strengthen them so that they can go wherever You send them to spread Your message as missionaries for Your Kingdom; this is the prayer of our hearts, Amen.
Almighty God, You gave Your people an assignment to fulfill here on earth. You said to them Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Lord I pray that this is will be the mission of our church. I ask that You keep our hearts and minds open so that we willingly seek to touch those outside the four walls of the church; those who do not know You, Amen.
