A Prayer for Loving Your Neighbor.

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone had a blessed holiday weekend. We enjoyed having everyone over for dinner this past Sunday — mark those calendars for dinner at 5 pm on Saturday, September 17th (more details to come).

We’re excited to connect with everyone tonight at 8 pm to continue in our time of corporate prayer and praise as we seek God on behalf of the greater Fort Worth metroplex.

Last week we specifically interceded on behalf of and prayed for God’s presence of love, justice, and mercy to be made known to widows, orphans, sojourners, and the poor across the Fort Worth metroplex.

As we invest time together tonight, we’ll specifically pray and seek God for how we best honor Him throughout the communities and campuses in loving and serving our neighbors as we love ourselves — as outlined in Mark 12:28-31 below.

28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” 29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no commandment greater than these.”

It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of our own lives that we simply forget to engage others in our path. While it’s easy to love and serve our friends and family, what about loving and serving our immediate and non-immediate neighbors?

After all, the Apostle Paul did write that we must also forget not to love and show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it (Hebrews 13:1).

Let’s challenge ourselves to be open and sensitive to the moving of the Spirit to love our neighbors — those who we agree and disagree with, those we’ve wronged and who’ve wronged us, and those who are different from us — as Jesus did.

I pray we are able to connect to God’s inexhaustible love, and truly allow his deep, enduring love for us to be evidenced in our life of love and service towards our neighbors: our brothers and sisters that are made in his image.

Let’s gather together to pray and be encouraged by the faith God has given us to see the nations and city of Fort Worth transformed through the Gospel of Jesus in loving our neighbors as ourselves and as Christ loved us: the Church, His Church.

Weekly Prayer Call from 8 pm – 9 pm (TONIGHT)

Every Wednesday night from 8 pm – 9 pm will be our corporate prayer and praise time to pray for the city of Fort Worth as well as one another and all that God is calling us to. We will start and end promptly, and look forward to everyone participating in our weekly call.


Join us at 8 pm tonight on Zoom, and let’s labor and pray to witness a change in communities and on campuses for Jesus.

God bless,
Pastor Alvin & Mallary Brown
