Week of Sep 21-26, 2020 (Text Only)

Monday, September 21

Prayer Point: The family is to be the example of love and unity but even when that is not being achieved, the people of God in the local church can be the example of the kind of unity that is possible even in the midst of diversity. Pray for God to bring unity to your family and to your church family.

Scripture: How wonderful it is, how pleasant, for God’s people to live together in harmony! Psalm 133:1

 

Tuesday, September 22

Prayer Point: Spend a few moments this morning praying for our local students and teachers as they continue adjusting to the new normal. Pray for homeschool parents as they continue to teach their families at home. Pray that they would rest in the faithful love of the Lord. After you pray take time to send a quick text to a teacher or student you know to encourage them today.

Scripture: Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his faithful love endures forever. Psalm 107:1

 

Wednesday, September 23

Prayer Point: To honor others means to put others ahead of ourselves.  Pray that God will help you to live in a way today in which you put others ahead of yourself.

Scripture: When you do things, do not let selfishness or pride be your guide. Instead, be humble and give more honor to others than to yourselves. Philippians 2:3

 

Thursday, September 24

Prayer Point: Friendships have changed over the last few months in the way we interact with one another. But that shouldn’t stop us from finding ways to encourage our friends. Spend time praying for a friend or two this morning and then send over a text or a phone call to encourage them today!

Scripture: Therefore encourage one another and build each other up as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

 

Friday, September 25

Prayer Point: For many of us, it is usually not a matter of not knowing what God’s word is directing us toward, the difficulty is in submitting to God’s direction. Pray that you will submit to God’s direction in your life. 

Scripture: Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. James 1:22

 

Saturday, September 26

Prayer Point: We all need community. We need people to encourage us and remind us of the faithfulness of God. Our community needs that from us as well. Take a moment today and reach out to two or three friends and ask for specific ways in which you can pray for them and what they are going through.

Scripture: Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

Prayer Walking

How do you Prayer Walk? 

Prayer walking is something you can do individually or as a family. It’s really simple and a great way to teach your children how to pray and show compassion for your neighbors. Start at your home and begin walking around your neighborhood. 

 1. You can stop at each house if you would like and pray for those who live in the house.

2. You could also pray for an entire street as you walk by each house praying specifically for those things listed below.

You can pray for these things while on your walk:

1. For you to have an opportunity to meet them, if you don’t know them, and to become good friends with them.

2. For them to be protected from the Coronavirus.

3. If they have children, pray for them and for their parents as they continue school at home.

4. Pray for their salvation. You can pray for them to come to know Christ if they don’t know Him as their Savior and/or pray for them to grow in their faith during this pandemic.

 You can also leave them a note letting them know that you care for them and prayed for them while on your walk. (Please don’t put the note in their mailbox. That’s a crime!) 

 We’ve designed a little note for you to download and print at your home. There’s a place for you to write a note to them if you would like. It also lets them know how they can specifically ask for prayer if they so desire, by clicking and downloading here: SV Prayer Cards.

 While you’re out prayer walking, snap a pic and share it with us by sending it to info@sv.church. We would love to pray for you and your neighborhood!
