Men's Ministry Prayer Focus

AUGUST 21ST TO AUGUST 27TH

Gentlemen,

This week our focus is a sensitive issue but should be addressed and most certainly prayed for. Obviously if you have been on this planet, this past week you have been inundated with news about the divisiveness, hatred, violence, etc., that has been going on in our cities.  Our nation is becoming increasingly divided and teeming with dissension.

Consider the following:

AUGUST 14TH TO AUGUST 20TH

Gentlemen,

It went like this earlier this week. “Trump warns of fire and fury”, while North Korea warns of “carefully examining” a plan to attack Guam, a U.S. Territory. (I wrote this Wednesday, of course there has been a lot of “trash talking” since).
Given the other violent acts of war going on in the world, do you think the world is fulfilling God’s command?
John 13:34

AUGUST 7TH TO AUGUST 13TH

Gentlemen,

I wanted to kind of spin off of the prayer focus from last week where we took a look at praying without confidence.  This week I’d like to take a look at do we give God praise when we pray, and are we in a spirit of gratitude as Pastor Jim touched on today.

“Do we find ourselves go to prayer lifting up request after request yet fail to give God admiration and praise?  Do we frequently attempt to use God to fulfill selfish desires?”  These were some points Dr. Charles Stanley was making.

JULY 30TH TO AUGUST 6TH

Gentlemen,

A little something different for our focus this week, I was praying this past week at the dinner table and lamenting about bills, had to take the car into the shop for repairs (not cheap), the pet to the vet, (not cheap), a few other things, (not cheap), get the picture, and even though I said Lord I know we have to place these things in your hand, I guess I must have not said it with much conviction because when I finished my wife called me on it.

JULY 24TH TO JULY 30TH

Gentlemen,

As you know, I am fond of taking a slice of the Sunday sermon and using it as a cornerstone for our prayer focus for the week.  So, here we go.  Part of Pastor Nelson’s sermon was on Pastors and Teachers, shepherding the flock (the church) as commanded by God’s word in Ephesians 4:11-16.  You may re-read the scripture to get the idea of what God is saying and what Pastor Nelson preached on today.

JULY 17TH TO JULY 23RD

Gentlemen,

A few weeks ago our prayer focus was for the week of Vacation Bible School headed by our new Director of Children’s Ministry, Libby Barringer.  Libby also had another prayer request which I would like to submit for prayer this week.

JUNE 26TH TO JULY 2ND

Gentlemen,

With our new Director of Children’s Ministry Libby Barringer on board, I asked her what can we as men pray about for the ministry.  She gave me a couple of things, but the first one is with regards to Vacation Bible School starting on Monday June 26th.

Let us pray for VBS this week.
Following is the prayer request from Libby. Pray for:
