‘“Come,” he said.
‘“Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came towards Jesus.’ (Matthew 14:29)
Welcome to our monthly Prayer Diary. Please pray with us as we seek God this February for:
Walking on Water
Paul and Becky Harcourt’s book Walking on Water has just been launched as a Bible Reading Plan on the YouVersion Bible app. Jesus invited Peter to join him and walk on the water. He invites us to participate in the supernatural life too, but what barriers (in your head or heart) prevent you from leaving the boat? Download the plan and as you read through it ask God to heal, transform and release you to step into things you never believed possible. Pray that many people around the world would download the plan and be changed as a result of it.
Pioneering and Planting
We held two Pioneer & Planting Days last week (1 February) in Scunthorpe and Salford. Pray that those who attended would be able to apply what they learnt and feel supported in their stepping out for God. Pray for the churches who are looking to plant in future, for leaders for those plants and for relationships with various denominations we are working with to encourage pioneering and planting. Is there somewhere God’s calling you to take the good news of Jesus?
The Discipleship Year is for those aged 18–24. It is all about growing as disciples of Jesus for a life of adventure with him. Pray for their second Weekend Away, happening 23–25 February 2018. Pray for every DY student to encounter God over the weekend in a way that will impact the rest of this year and beyond. Do you have some time away with God booked in your diary? Just like any relationship the more you invest in it the more fulfilling and dynamic it will be!
New Wine Worship seeks to serve, encourage and commission the local church by building local worship communities with shared vision and values. Pray for the worship hubs that have launched recently (up to 10 worship leaders meeting regularly in local or virtual spaces). Pray for those writing songs to be recorded at the upcoming FOR THE ONE worship days for our 2018 live album — that the Holy Spirit would inspire them and that their songs would resource many local churches. If you have a heart for worship find out more about the worship hubs, worship days and live album in our latest worship blog.
