Prayer Guide: May 17-23

Prayer Guide: May 17-23

20 minutes with Jesus prayer guide

In His Word.

Begin by carefully reading one chapter 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!

In Prayer.

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. Links to join for online prayer are found on our website, www.mstar.church. On the other days, simply pray for each of these three focal points as the Lord leads you.
