JOY CHURCH PRAYER TOPICS: (March 19, 2019)

1P Doug and Leadership Team:
4
Good morning IP team and anyone else who may be joining. Spring is in the air or is it? Regardless of the weather conditions, may the Spring refreshment of God's friendship call us out of the dark hour of winter. Do you sense the Friendship that is arising in your heart?. Do you sense the calling of God into deeper friendship? If not, please take time this morning to sit before the LORD, like Mary, and honestly confess your desire for friendship with God and with others. The friendship heart of Jesus is so powerful and evident in that He commands us to love one another as a display of our friendship with Him. This morning before you begin to intercede, ask the LORD, "What kind of Friend am I to LORD?" Listen for His answer, and then pray into that!
5
Please continue to pray for the pastoral staff, elders, and leaders. We are continually encouraging each other that God is soveriegn and in complete charge over His Church. Often times the temptation that enters into our hearts is the feeling that we have to accomplish, perform, achieve something more than having to be intimate with the LORD. As John the Baptist so powerfully declared, "A person can only receive what is given from heaven." Pray that we are faithful in what we have received from Heaven, and not negligent. At the same time not being greedy, and wanting more than what is given to us from the LORD.
6
*DISCIPLESHIP* Joy exists to make disciple makers who love God and love people. The great example of friendship that Jesus showed us involves discipleship. The friendship is built, to know one another, but especially to know Christ more. To become like Him and to live out what Christ calls us too. During this season of Friendship, the foundation of discipleship will be planted deeper and deeper - and even if we don't say the word discipleship, that the Holy Spirit will stir each of us to be making friendships in discipleship!
7
Please continue to pray that the SG leaders and the SG members. As we enter into the 2nd month of SG, we are moving from a place of awkward familiarity to a place of greater trust and safety. However, there is another hurdle that needs to overcome and that is the discomfort of intimacy. Please pray that as the LORD leads, hearts will be open, vulnerable and honest. That everyone in SG would really be loved, known, and cared for. That whether they are in a good season, difficult season, victorious of stumbling season, that we are a community that wants to continually lift up and set free in the LORD!
8
The Family Empowerment Seminar to May 4. Pray that parents and parents to be would be empowered and have more tools to transform their relationships with each other and their children.
9
Please pray for the Friendship theme and series. That the friendship of Christ would be so abiding in us, that we feel so drawn to friendship with those we have not had friendship with as well as go deeper with those friendships we already have. The final Friendship theme message will be on Easter Sunday (which is also a church wide invite your Friend day). Please pray that our members would invite their co-workers and friends and that we can be a genuine example of Jesus - who is the friend of sinners.
10
Pray for the passion week dawn service that we will be joining with Metro - held at Joy from Mon- Friday from 6am-7am. Pray that many would come hungry and longing to walk with Jesus as the road to the Cross becomes clearer and more evident to us.
