2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

THIS MONTH'S PRAYER FOCUS

OCTOBER: 24-HOUR PRAYER

Brightmoor loves a good celebration, and we are getting ready for one! October is Pastor Appreciation Month.  Our church family gets to devote time to pray for our pastors and church staff this month. These individuals serve the church so consistently and humbly.

We have a responsibility to our pastors and leaders to lift them up in prayer, to come alongside them and help serve the church.

 

        “Appreciate those who diligently labor among you and have charge over you in the Lord and give you
        instruction, and that you esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake.”  1 Thessalonians 5:12-13

 

We Pray:

  • Pray the Lord gives them Godly Wisdom. To know what to do or how to respond to everyday situations and to people seeking guidance. "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him." James 1:5
     

  • Pray for their personal walk with the Lord to be close and intimate. Let them hear the Holy Spirit in their own life. Let us pray for them to guard their hearts and have open eyes and ears to see and hear sound doctrine only.
     

  • Pray for them to have God's favor and blessings on their ministry. Many pastors work in situations that require long hours, limited resources and sacrifices unknown.Pray for God’s work to go forth in their work and for all glory and honor to be given to Him. Let them be a protected vessel in His Kingdom.

 

      1 Timothy 2:1-4 says, “I urge, then, first, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all
      people - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and
      holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a
      knowledge of the truth.”

 

A praying church is a powerful church!  Please find a complete list of our pastors on staff at https://www.brightmoorchurch.org/about and scroll down the page to Meet our Team.
