week of prayer // day 2
Father God, you are good. You are gracious. You are so generous to us.
As it was prayed over the Israelites, Lord, we pray for your blessing to flow over your church, Fellowship Chapel.
May the Lord bless you and protect you. (Number 6:24 NLT)
God, we pray for your protection over Fellowship.
God, we pray for protection over our households.
[Spend some time reflecting on what areas that you yearn for God's protection.]
May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. (Number 6:25 NLT)
God, we pray that we would walk in ways that bring you joy. We also pray for your grace and forgiveness to wash away where we've fallen short of your desires.
God, forgive us as a church, Fellowship Chapel, for where we have sinned.
And God, we pray that we would as a church, Fellowship Chapel, walk in the ways that bring you joy.
[Spend some time reflecting on where you've sinned. Ask God for ways in which we can work toward restoration with one another.]
May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace. (Numbers 6:26 NLT)
God, we know that you offer a peace that is not of this world. You give a peace that is beyond ourselves and one that only comes from you.
We desire peace.
We desire peace in our church. Would we be known as people who carry your peace.
We desire peace in our homes. May we be witnesses of your peace to the neighbors around us.
We desire peace in our workplaces, schools, and the places we visit. May we bring your love, grace, and mercy with us wherever we go.
God, we look to you as the perfecter of our faith, asking for you to build us up so we may be powerful witnesses of your goodness and love.
[Close by spending some time asking God how you can bring peace into your communities. Listen for His whisper. Share your struggles. Release your fears.]
Thank you for your peace Lord God.
