Prayer Plan // September 2022

A simple, predictable, monthly prayer list to engage, encourage, and equip our church to pray.
What better thing to shape our prayer life than God’s own Word? When we engage in God’s Word, there are three key things we can do to get the most out of it. Read. Reflect. Respond. Read through the text. Reflect on what you just read. What stands out? What questions do you have? What did you learn about God? Yourself? And finally Respond. God speaks to us through His Word. As we take in what He has given us, it is natural to reply back to Him in prayer. At times, we seek God’s wisdom about a specific need or concern.  We will read this month’s scripture and reflect. This month,  we are looking at Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18.
Scripture
Lord, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I stand up; you understand my thoughts from far away. You observe my travels and my rest; you are aware of all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, you know all about it, Lord. You have encircled me; you have placed your hand on me. This wondrous knowledge is beyond me. It is lofty; I am unable to reach it. For it was you who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise you because I have been remarkably and wondrously made. You works are wondrous, and I know this very well. My bones were not hidden from you when I was made in secret, when I was formed in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in your book and planned before a single one of them began. God, how precious your thoughts are to me; how vast their sum is! If i counted them, they would outnumber the grains of sand when I wake up, I am still with you.
Psalm 139: 1-6, 13-18
Reflection
You know me, Lord! Everything about me is known by You. I am encircled by You and Your hand is upon me. Sometimes I take for granted how well you know me. But if I think about it for a while, it can overwhelm me that the creator of the universe knows me! It is not something I should take for granted but should celebrate as the greatest gift of all.  

Place in me the reality that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Every part of me is Your design. I have a hard time understanding how You think of me with your precious thoughts. You see me as a treasure in a world that at times refuses to see me at all. These thoughts are too many for me to count and I am in awe that I am always with you.
PRAYER SPOTLIGHT
  • Pray for all of the teachers and faculty as they care for and invest in the next generation.
  • Pray for students to have a great year and for those that don’t know Christ to be introduced to Him.

PRO TIP
