Prayer Guide: Dec 2, 2018 – 1 Peter 3:8-12
Posted By: Nate Magloughlin - 11/28/2018 4:00:00 PM

On this first Sunday of advent 2018, we turn our attention to 1 Peter 3:8-12. We are reminded of the importance of unity and love in the church as well as trusting the Lord to defend us during mistreatment. Peter suggests that good behavior is necessarily associated with the experience of life and good days. We are reminded that Jesus is the promised hope in whom our righteousness rests. Please join with your church family as we prepare to gather for worship on Sunday.

Prayer Guide: Dec 2, 2018 – 1 Peter 3:8-12

1. As we enter advent season, ask God to turn our thoughts to God’s grace in the incarnation.

2. Recognizing that we have been adopted into God’s family through faith in Jesus Christ, ask God to raise up families who will consider foster care and adoption.

3. Pray that God would give us all generous hearts so that we would give willingly and sacrificially towards our March for Missions Offering. Our goal as a church this year is $175,000.

4. Pray for the unity of Trinity Baptist Church. Ask God to help us to have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, tender hearts, and humility. Pray that God’s grace and love would be evident in the way that we love one another.

5. Pray that God’s Spirit would convict each us when we fail to love and serve one another as He calls us to. Ask God to give us courage to reconcile with those from whom we are disconnected.

6. Pray for grace to entrust yourself to God, even in the face of injustice and mistreatment.

7. Ask God to do His work of salvation and sanctification as we gather to worship on Sunday morning.
