Ligonier awakening prayer guide week 2 February 2018
Pray for your church, coworkers, and neighbors.
Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write on to you of the common salvation it was needful for me to write unto you and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Prayer by highplainsparson:
O Lord our Father we are a people that you have made and we live here in the city of Babylon in a foreign and strange place which does not know you. We bear the reproach and shame that the world puts upon us for being your people, but let us glorify your name in everything that we do, in conversation with others that don’t know you to lead them to the way. Let our local church hold fast to the confession that was once delivered to the Saints and was handed down through our forefathers in the faith. Let us be like the early church that did not waver in her faith or morals but proclaimed them to the world. Let us be thankful Lord for your law and your gospel and proclaim both without equivocation or trying to soften it up, but let us soften up our demeanor in order to bring people to the truth of you. Strengthen our hearts for we are so weak and frail and afraid. Let us go boldly in our community and tell others the reason for the hope that we have within us that many souls may be converted to you where we work, where we live, and gathered to your church where we worship. Add to the number of your local church where we gather and stir up your people to seek the lost in the world. The contrast between the world and the church is real. Let us never be ashamed of it but to unashamedly stand firm. Let us show them that your love is better than any love the world can offer and that we have a better way, and let this firmness of confession be ours by your Spirit and your grace working in us. Use it effectively to build the local church where we are. We pray this in Jesus name.
