Pray for your circle of influence. Who are some people that you tend to see often and can influence for Christ? Pray that the gospel would bear fruit and spread throughout your circle of influence as described in Colossians 1:5-6:
"...the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace."
Each Thursday, we pray for the upcoming weekend services as final preparations are made on this day. Would you pray with a renewed vigor today for this Sunday's services? Specifically, will you pray for the new sermon series that was launched last Sunday, "For the Sake of The NAME"? Pray that God would use His Word in this series to deepen our devotion to Him, clarify our understanding of His purposes for us, and to empower us to take the next steps of Christ-centered obedience, for the sake of the Name!
Yesterday, we looked at the unfinished task in Asia. The fourth point from yesterday referred to the unreached peoples in Asia and the affinity blocs they could be grouped in. The affinity blocs of Asia are:
The Arab World
The Iranian-Median bloc
The Turkic bloc
The East Asian bloc
The Tibetan / Himalayan bloc
The Southeast Asian bloc
The Malay peoples
Now, look at the map to help orient yourself. Realize each bloc represents a group of people with similar language, race, culture, geography, and history and yet, even within the blocs there are distinct needs and identities. Pray over these regions. Woodlands has supported missionaries in many of these blocs. Pray for those working to make His Name known in this region of the world.
For the Sake of the NAME. As we begin this 10-week journey as a church pray that God would use His word in this series to develop the following conviction in each of us.
"If I have been saved, healed, forgiven, and set free by the NAME of Jesus, and I am not living for the sake of the NAME, I am not really living.
