10 Days of Prayer

2020

Day 1

SPUR ON ONE ANOTHER

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:24-25

Heavenly Father, thank you for loving us so much that while we were still dead in our trespasses and sins, Christ completed his work on the cross. By grace through faith in him, we have forgiveness of sin and life everlasting.

Thank you for those who spur us on the way and encourage us to persevere in ministry. We pray for our colleagues and partners in the gospel, for those we lead and for those who lead us.

Even in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, open our eyes, Lord, to see opportunities to spur one another on towards your love and good deeds.

Forgive us, Lord, when we fail to spur one another on. Forgive us that some good deeds never came to pass because we did not spur one another on to something that was within our reach to do, but a little encouragement was needed.

Teach us to demonstrate the love of Christ in other people’s lives and help us to be so in tune with you that others may be provoked to love and to good works through our witness, as Christ lives in us and we in him.

Lord we need each other; we cannot make it on our own. You call us to encourage and to motivate one another to live vibrant lives of service and faith. With the day of our Lord Jesus coming and our ultimate victory imminent, we should be motivated even more to help and to encourage each other.

Lord God, thank you for our Christian family, who encourage and motivate us to serve others. Use us to bless others.

In the name of the Lord Jesus we pray. Amen.

 

PLEASE PRAY:

Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia

For every worker in our regions to have such an abiding and deep relationship with Jesus that each encounter with a local person would become a natural, incarnational and impactful experience.  

For our people to be protected from the attacks of Satan and from people with power in the region who may be hostile towards the gospel, in order that they would be free to stay and serve.

For at least one missional business to be planted in every country in these regions during the next five years, to employ hundreds of people who will get a daily dose of Jesus.  

For leaders in this region to understand the times and know what should be done, like the men of Issachar. Pray for the God of peace to equip them in everything good for doing his will. (I Chronicles 12:32, Hebrews 13:20-21)
