Because prayer is a privilege and an amazing source of power for Christians, we pray daily. Our team of intercessors meets each morning to offer prayers for those in need. Our standard practice involves following the ACTS model of prayer—Adoration and Acknowledgement of God’s sovereignty, Confession (and repentance), Thanksgiving and Supplication (requests). With supplication, we make our petitions known to God and in anticipation of His response, we pray for peace of mind, patience, understanding and guidance.
Peace - We pray for peace, as well as grace and mercy, so that the person(s) in need is/are better able to handle their situation(s).
Patience - We pray for patience so that the person(s) in need is/are better able to endure the meantime—the time between our prayer and God’s response to it. Although God’s timing may not synch with our own, rest assured, His timing is perfect. Therefore, we pray for patience to wait on Him in cases where His response is not immediate.
Understanding – Whether good or bad, we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. (Rom. 8:28) Therefore, we pray for understanding of God’s will in every situation.
Guidance – Lastly, we pray for guidance in the form of wisdom, discernment and instructions. We also pray for strength and courage to do the things necessary to secure victory.
