This Lent, as we focus so much on Jesus (for good reason!), it’s also a great time to focus on what Jesus thought was important enough to do right before he was arrested, beaten, and crucified. He prayed for the church.
Often, I think we are so used to driving by the church, going to the church, or praying in church that we forget to pray for the church.
Using some of the same thoughts as Jesus prayed in John chapter 17, here are ten points to pray for your church. But not only the people in the building where you worship; this is for all believers all over the world, whether they belong to your congregation or not.
Let’s pray that believers . . .
