Although we have been praying about several of the following subjects for a little while, we have a couple of new items to pray about! Here’s the updated prayer list:
B – Backpack Outreach Event. First, let’s praise the Lord for how He uses ordinary backpacks to do extraordinary things! Second, let’s pray for the Lord to use this outreach event to show the extraordinary love of the Christ. We can ask the Lord to use these simple school supplies to make an eternal impact in each child’s life. We can also ask the Lord to provide monetarily as we give back and serve Him.
U – Understanding. As we pray for God’s very best for North Park, let’s ask Him for understanding and guidance. We should praise the Lord for David, Mark, and the other leaders who faithfully seek the Lord when making decisions, but we should also pray that the Lord would give them clarity and direction. As the North Park leadership continues to follow where the Lord leads, we can ask Him to help them walk in bold, unwavering faith.
I – Involvement. Rather than standing still in our faith, we’ve been called to serve the Lord as we follow where He leads us. We can all be involved in what the Lord is doing through North Park! In fact, several of our ministries need volunteers. Whether we visit the sick and shut in with the Ministry of Encouragement or get involved with the outreach ministries, there is a place for each of us to serve. We can pray for the Lord to guide us as we seek to serve Him. We can also ask the Lord to bless these ministries with volunteers that desire to be involved in what He’s doing through North Park!
L – Leadership. Let’s lift up the new leadership team that is being formed, asking the Lord to give them wisdom as they serve the Lord at North Park. Pray that the Lord would use each of them and their gifts to further build His kingdom at North Park! Let’s also pray for David and Mark as they continue to seek God’s best for North Park. We should praise the Lord for both of these guys and how hard they work to serve the Lord well.
D – Development. On Wednesday, August 2nd, there is a special business meeting to continue discussing the development taking place at North Park. From the new schedule to a new search committee, we can lift up each of these potential developments to the Lord. Let’s ask that He would bless North Park’s effort to be obedient to follow where He leads. Let’s also pray that we seek His very best as we pray over the meeting and the decisions to come.
*Let’s also remember to pray for our North Park family and the burdens upon their hearts.
