Prayers for a Heart of Evangelism and Discipleship:

Prayer for Focus

Isaiah 61:1 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.”

Lord, we are living in a time of church exit and the watering down of the purpose of the church. The Holy Spirit and your Word continue to point to prayer, evangelism, and discipleship as the lifeline to saving the church. Today I come to you in prayer for my church. It is my desire to see fewer “programs and finances” going into what the world expects and more of what is needed for pure evangelism and discipleship.

Please give my church the heart of evangelism. Give all of us eyes to seek the lost and bring them to you. Let us not forget the core business of the church is soul winning. I pray for our church leadership to keep this vision before their eyes daily. Sometimes it is easy to get distracted by all of the hype of newer, greater, creative programs. The gospel is simple; make our church keep a focus on the simple message of salvation and leading all to Christ. We have a clear direction in Matthew 28:19-20: “Go, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I commanded you.”

Lord, I pray my church continues to grow its new believers and mature believers. I am believing for a comprehensive discipleship program which meets the spiritual needs of new believers as well as seasoned believers. I pray for church growth and church planting, a result of empowering our believers. Salvation is not the end of our calling. Father, raise our leaders to build an army of believers emboldened with the full armor of God, ready to train up the members to carry your message to the world. fill our members and leaders with the power of the Holy Spirit to accomplish your work.

With great anticipation, Amen.
