Prayer represents a significant part of our identity in the Spirit of Peace Missional Community. We engage in formal and informal prayer, together and as individuals, led by our Pastor or any one of our congregation as the Holy Spirit moves us and the example of Jesus Christ teaches us. We pray while seated, standing and even walking. We pray in our waking and sleeping times. We pray throughout the seasons in celebration and supplication. We pray out loud in speech, music and song. We pray in silence. We pray in conversation with Jesus Christ, expressing thankfulness and petition. We pray because we are believers.
Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ LCMC has organized a formal Three Days of Prayer. This is our third annual formal “Three Days” event. As children of the Lord we believe Prayer is a conversation between the Creator and us in Christ Jesus.
This milestone prayer event is organized in the following manner:
Day One: January 6. Confession.
This is a day focused on confession. We have made our lives, our relationships and even our church in our own image. We confess that the church belongs to Jesus and not to us. We gather to lay down our pride, our sin and our agenda and ask the Lord of the church for forgiveness, which He gives freely and with mercy.
Day Two: January 7. Petition.
This is a day of petition. Pray for your congregation, for the pastor, for the leaders, for those who carry out ministries, for the Sunday School teachers, for the Confirmation leaders, for those leading adult Bible studies and for those leading small groups. Pray for those in hospital and nursing home ministries. Pray for all those connected to your church that they might know God’s redeeming love for all in Christ.
Day Three: January 8. Vision.
This is a day for vision. Pray that the Holy Spirit will again move through the hearts and minds of leaders and pastors that God’s vision for His church might be revealed and fulfilled. This is a time of prayer for renewal, revival and encouragement. Pray for God’s vision.
After participating in the prayerful event, your congregation will experience the wonderful and joyous sense of purpose and closeness to our awesome Triune God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit! Amen.
Questions? Please feel free to contact us as you wish for prayer will bring us together in His Name. Amen.
Spirit of Peace.
