At a staff meeting earlier in the year some of our staff discussed the desire to have a monthly prayer focus for every month of the year. We want to bring our congregation together in prayer and to experience the power of prayer in our community.
The prayer focus for the month of September is Discipleship. Ask God how you can be a better disciple and how you can make disciples of others.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
– Matthew 28:18-20
Prayer: Lord, it is your desire for everyone to know you. Help me to be a part of that. Help me to be a good disciple for your kingdom and give me the grace to disciple others. Help me to advance your kingdom every day. Lord, reveal to me my weaknesses and give me the strength to grow in these areas so that I am a better example to those that I disciple. Send me out into my community, my country, and all over the world to disciple others and show them how to grow near to you. I love you Lord, help me to show others how to love to too. Amen.
