20 minutes with Jesus prayer guide
JULY 12-18, 2020
In His Word.
Begin by carefully reading a passage a day. While you’re reading, write down things that stand out to you, questions you may have, and what you think the passage means. Then look for a command to follow, a promise to proclaim, and a prayer to be prayed. Write them down, too . . . then obey, proclaim, and pray!
Our prayer emphasis is three-fold: We’ll pray for our church, our community, and our world. On the days we gather together to pray, specific requests are listed. The link to our online prayer gatherings is found on our website, www.mstar.church. We’ll pray the weekly prayer focus each day for the rest of the week.

Scripture: Matthew 22:1-14
- Our Church // Pray for our 9 and 11 am services—for our teaching pastor (Pastor Chris), worship team, technical team, and hosts to be filled with God’s Spirit as they lead the services. Pray for those listening and watching, that we would come with expectation to hear and respond to the Spirit.
