October Prayer Needs
A Day of Prayer and Fasting
Saturday, October 3

  • As a church, we are setting aside the third day of every month in 2020 as a day of fervent prayer and fasting. Whether you fast from a meal or for the entire day, please seek God’s presence and power. A prayer guide with timely emphases will be available online at beginning October 2.
    • Applying Biblical Truth
      • “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7NIV).

As we continue to Worship in person and online, pray for the following things:

  • God will make His presence known to everyone Worshiping with us.
  • All who come onto our campus will be protected from any illness.
  • Our online services will continue to be shared across our city, state, nation, and world, and biblical truth will be spread as a result.
  • People will be engaged to Worship all week long through our weekend Worship Services, mid-week Worship opportunities with Next Gen, and more.
    • Applying Biblical Truth
      • My mouth is filled with Your praise
        And with Your glory all day long” (Psalm 71:8).

We praise God that we have slowly begun to ReGroup with some of our Groups, and we pray for the time when we will be able to reunite with all!

  • Pray all Groups will lead our members to deeper intimacy with Jesus.
  • Pray members will desire to continue Connecting with others both in person and online through virtual meetings.
    • Applying Biblical Truth
      • “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:23–25).

Serving is a primary way we Share Jesus with our city. Join us as we pray for our upcoming Jesus Loves Memphis Workday on Saturday, October 24.

  • Pray members of our church and other churches in Memphis will be led to Serve Out in the city.
  • Pray that churches will be united through service to our Lord.
  • Pray this Workday will bring city renewal to Memphis.
    • Applying Biblical Truth
      • “Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all” (Ephesians 4:1–6).
