Prayer

The following prayer points coincide with the Scripture passages that are read each Sunday. This page is updated midweek and can be used both to prepare for the coming worship service as well as to encourage further meditation on the service which just passed.

"And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person's thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God." 1 Corinthians 2:1-11

Pray for the people of All Saints:

  • That their faith would not rest in the wisdom of men but the power of God.
  • To hear and understand the secret and hidden wisdom that God imparts to the mature
  • To know that they cannot imagine the depth and breadth of what God has prepared for those who love him
  • To understand the Spirit of God searches their thoughts and it is through the Spirit of God that He reveals His thoughts to them

" The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom then shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid? When evildoers came upon me to eat up my flesh, it was they, my foes and my adversaries, who stumbled and fell. Though an army should encamp against me, yet my heart shall not be afraid; and though war should rise up against me, yet will I put my trust in him. One thing have I asked of the LORD; one thing I seek; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life; to behold the fair beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he shall keep me safe in his shelter; he shall hide me in the secrecy of his dwelling and set me high upon a rock." Psalm 27:1-7

Pray for the people of All Saints:

  • To know the Lord as their light and salvation, the strength of their lives and that they have nothing to fear
  • To put their trust in the Lord
  • To dwell in the house of the Lord all their days and seek the Lord
  • For the Lord to keep them safe in the day of trouble and in His shelter and the secrecy of His dwelling
  • For the Lord to set them high upon a rock

“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:13-20

Pray for the people of All Saints:

  • To be the salt of the earth and not lose their saltiness
  • To be the light of the world, letting their good works shine and not be hidden under a basket
  • To understand that Jesus did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it.
  • To understand their responsibility to uphold, keep and teach God’s commandments and their reward for doing so
  • To know that their righteousness is only through the blood of Jesus

First Fruits service

“First Fruits” comes from the spiritual reality described in the New Testament. In Acts 2, on the day of Pentecost, centuries of prophecies were fulfilled when the Holy Spirit was poured out with tongues of fire. This was the "first fruits" of Pentecost. Accompanied by God's word, these gifts are entry points for many to follow Jesus and glorify God.

The First Fruits service is the first Friday of every month. Please email Jan Fletcher for updates about First Fruits: janfletcher@sbcglobal.net.
