Praying for the Church in the New Year

Will you join me in praying for the Macland Road church of Christ in the New Year?

Here is a list of some of the things for which I will be praying throughout the new year:

  • May we love one another (Heb. 13:1).
  • May we be continue to be blessed to be able to work for the Lord (1 Cor. 15:58).
  • May we uplift one another often by assembling together (Heb. 10:25).
  • May we grow closer together through the avenue of fellowship (Eph. 4:31-32).
  • May we grow spiritually in grace and in knowledge of the Lord (2 Pet. 3:18).
  • May we take the Great Commission to heart and reach out to the lost with the gospel of Christ (Matt. 28:18-20).
  • May we experience numerical growth through the preaching of the gospel (Acts 2:47).
  • May we forgive others of their trespasses (Matt. 6:14-15).
  • May we be a house of encouragement (1 Thess. 5:11).
  • May we be contented in the Lord no matter the situation (Php. 4:11).
  • May we find strength in Christ when trials come our way (Php. 4:13).
  • May we learn from the mistakes of our past, so that we do not make them again (1 Cor. 10:11).
  • May we walk worthy of that which we have been called (Eph. 4:1).
  • May we be ready to defend the hope within us (1 Pet. 3:15).

I am praying for the church in the new year, and I hope that you will join me! God bless you and yours in 2018!
