Colossians 4:2  “Be devoted to prayer, being watchful and thankful”  



Prayer of Praise and Thanksgiving

  • Spend the first few moments praising God and giving thanks.  Let’s not rush into asking for anything until we have recognized God’s goodness, faithfulness and favor in our lives. 

Matthew 7:7-8 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.


Pray for our family

  • Spouses

John 15:16  You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit--fruit that will last--and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.  


Pray over empty chairs / empty parking lot and sanctuary

  • (Pray through the rows of chairs) that God would fill the empty chairs in our church with new people who are seeking to know him as Savior and Lord

  • (Pray through the parking lot) that God would fill the parking lot of our church with new families

  • Pray for revival in our church

  • For the Holy Spirit to move powerfully in us
