The following prayer guide is a monthly outline of ways to pray for Texas Cities. It is specifically for churches and church leaders in these cities. Our prayer is that the Kingdom of God will be advanced and these churches will be encouraged. Also that they will be healthy as the work to be the church in our urban areas.
Please use the following prayer as guides, though they can be prayed verbatim it is better for you to put these prayers in your own words.
In this portion, we will be sharing names of pastors, church leaders, and churches. If you have a pastor or church leader who is working in an urban, inner-city, or area that is shifting demographically; feel free to send their name and we will be sure to add them to our monthly prayer sheet.
Father, I pray for pastors and church leaders of urban churches to be able to discern the needs of the community. Once this has been done; I pray that they will be able to put together specific ministries and ministry descriptions. That people in their church and perhaps people from outside their church will step up and meet those needs. We pray, right now, for the ministry connections that need to be made to get the great work you are doing done. We pray that Texas Baptist Urban Missions, Texas Baptists, local associations and others will be a part of making these connections. Give ministry leaders wisdom in how to best put together these connections.
