I AM CHURCH PRAYER MISSION SEPT - NOV 2020
“I EXHORT therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intersessions, and
giving of thanks, be made for all men.” (1 Tim. 2:1). “Be kindly affectioned one to
another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another. Rejoicing in hope;
patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer” (Rom. 12:10, 12) “Continue in
prayer, and watch it the same with thanksgiving; Withal praying also for us, that
God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for
which I am also in bonds. That I may make it manifest as I ought to speak” (Col.
4:2-4). Everywhere we turn, prayer should be there to meet us. And when it does, the
following results will begin to show up with increasing regularity. Consider them
as a sneak preview of what will happen if I AM Church truly becomes devoted to
Evangelism of the lost (Col. 4:3; 1Tim. 2:1-8)
Cultivation of discipleship (Luke 11:1-2; John 17)
True Christian fellowship (Acts 2:42)
Wise decisions (James 1:5)
Obstacles overcome (Mark 11:22-24)
Needs met (Matt. 6:11; Luke 11:5-13)
True worship ignited (Matt. 6:13; Acts 2:41-47)
Revival Sparked (2 Chorn. 7:14)
As Jesus told his disciples at Gethsemane, we should “watch and pray” (Matthew
26:41). We need to pray for one another, not judge and criticize each other. If we
watch people, we can see when they need encouragement, when they are
depressed, fearful, insecure, or experiencing any number of obvious problems.
God allows us to discern their need in order to be part of the answer, not part of
the problem. Remember we are not the potter. God is, and we certainly don’t
know how to “fix” people. People who are hurting don’t need someone with a
spirt of pride trying to fix them; they need acceptance, love, and prayer. We need
to do the praying and let God do the working. Pray this week that the lord make
you sensitive to the needs and hurts of other as well as give you the wisdom and
discernment to know what and how to pray for others.
The enemy does everything possible to keep God’s people divided, because once
we come together in unity, we gain momentum and take ground for the kingdom.
United prayer is powerful! This is why removing bitterness toward others and
choosing to forgive is so crucial.
John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another, as
I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this all men will know that you
are My disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Romans 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all
This week take time out to talk to the Lord about any relationships that come to
you mind that need to me made right. For the sake of Christ and the sake of
gaining a more powerful prayer life, make a point to reconcile those relationships.
For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the
saints are refreshed by thee, brother. (Philem. 7)
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be
healed. The effectual and fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
This week we will be praying for the concerns of our fellow saints and asking them
to do the same for us. We need each other’s prayers. It’s one of the most loving
things you could ever do for each other. So often we say “I’ll be praying for you!”
and commonly those prayers go unspoken.
Pray that God would strengthen I AM church family, this will cement our unity in
shared faith and in relationship as a church family unit, further helping us to
commit to pray for one another strengthening our love and concern for one
another which will also draw others to know and love God through the love of
Christ that we exhibit toward one another.
1 Corinthians 12:24-27 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath
tempered the body together, having given more abundant honor to that part
which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members
should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all
the members suffer with it; or one member be honored all the members rejoice
with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
Pray for the body of Christ as a whole for unity, oneness, spiritual wisdom,
understanding, discernment of spiritual things, and that they walk, live and
conduct themselves in a manner worthy and pleasing to God. Also pray and bind
satan’s every menacing spirit that would stir up against God’s people.
Pray for the Lost
2 Corinthians 5:18 and 20 And all things are of God who hath reconciled us to
himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; Now
then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we
pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
Ask God to open the eyes of the lost and reveal to them their need for a Savior.
Pray against the enemy’s tactics that hold them captive, that the enemy would be
prevented from blinding their eyes and hearts.
Pray for God to begin working in their hearts to prepare them to receive the
Pray for conviction of sin to agitate their hearts, bringing about true repentance
and a desire for Christ’s cleansing.
Pray for opportunities and boldness, as well as for God to use and speak through
you, to share the gospel with them in power and love.
Pray for Family
Pray for our Pastor/Ministers
It is our job as the saints to undergird the pastor and the ministering staff in
-that the spirit of the lord rest upon him
-that no weapon formed against him shall prosper
