When His last became our first.

Happy Wednesday! We hope your week is going good so far and that you’re feeling energized for our midweek power-up moment of prayer together.

This past Sunday, we started a new sermon series, “One Another.”  We’re taking a deep-dive into what it truly means to live at the heart of Christian community and how the Gospel of Jesus points us to “one another,” one another.

Entitled “Love One Another,” we examined John 13–Jesus’ last discourse with His disciples, commonly referred to as the Last Supper, before His hour of crucifixion.

We’re encouraged and challenged by Jesus washing the feet of His disciples as a living demonstration of His last, yet new command for them (and us too!) to live by daily: Love One Another.

So, let’s carry that spirit of love into our prayer time today as we pray the following:

  • That the love of God in our hearts becomes intentionally directed towards ALL people, not just a select few or who we deem deserving.
  • That we are sensitive and aware to respond to the “love one another” need we encounter daily.
  • That we’re willing to sacrificially serve the best interest of others, even when it means putting our own interests aside.
  • That our humility in Christ empowers us by the Holy Spirit to serve and love others in ways that bring glory to God.
  • That the Holy Spirit continually convicts and transforms our hearts, replacing negativity with positivity in our interactions to love one another.
  • That we actively seek out opportunities to express Jesus’ love to those in need, especially the widows, orphans, sojourners, or the marginalized and disenfranchised.

In our being and doing as the hands and feet of Jesus, let’s pray to glorify God in ways that make a difference toward creating the kind of world and the kind of church we all desire to be a part of: One that loves another as Jesus loved us.

Looking forward to praying with and seeing you at 12 pm!

God bless,
Pastor Alvin & Mallary Brown
