DAY 17 - Pray For Your Church



DAY 17 - Pray For Your Church


Pastor MiChelle Ferguson

Executive Pastor

Word of Faith Southfield, MI


Hi. Welcome to Day 17 of 30 days of prayer. I am Pastor MiChelle Ferguson and today I will be leading us in praying for our church. I am actually going to read two passages of Scripture. I’m going to start with Acts chapter 9, verse 31 – it says this, “Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.” So you can see here that these churches are in different places, different areas – you know, you are talking about Galilee, Samaria, Judaea. You have to know that there are differences in culture and maybe even how things are done, but when they were unified and when they were come together and walking in the fear of the Lord, they experienced great multiplication. We know that is what God wants for us in this day and age. Then I’m going to read Psalms 133, verse 1 says, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” So we want to pray for not just our church, but for churches throughout the body of Christ. I believe that God is going to use the local church to be a blessing as a large part of the move of God in this last day and age. Let’s put aside petty differences. You know, Satan likes to come and disrupt faith by using strife and by using contention. Let’s get into unity together. We all know that Jesus Christ is Lord and He is our Savior. So let’s join together praying for our leadership. Let’s stop criticizing the leadership and let’s pray for the leadership, that those who are in authority who God has placed over our churches and in our church bodies be clear and hear directly from Him. And that they not miss it to the right or to the left – that they not fall into weariness or tiredness, but that they continue to stay in the perfect will of God and that God can be magnified as we all get into unity and one accord to help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and snatch souls from Satan and bring more into the body of Christ in this last day.
