Prayer is the most effective and least limited resource for helping us to live like missionaries and make disciples who make disciples. Thank you for joining us.
This week you can...
...ask God to connect us with people of peace - people who are spiritually hungry and welcome to getting to know us. Specifically pray for people of peace in West Price Hill and Oakley as well as for your own neighborhood or network.
...ask God to help us to fix our eyes on Jesus. We want our ministry to come from a place of intimacy with God - pursuing the King not just his kingdom.
...thank God for the work he's doing in NKY through Florence Vineyard. Ask God to raise up missional disciple makers within the church and to provide spiritual strength and support to their church leaders.
We gather on Zoom weekly to pray - Wednesdays from 7 a.m. to 7:30 a.m - specifically for our neighborhoods and networks. You are welcome to join us, and we will join you in praying for yours. If you would like to join in, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Wednesday Prayer" in the subject line, and we will send you a link and a calendar invite.
But even if you can't join us, you can also gather a few of your friends and pray like us.
