Merger Prayer Vigil - Day 16 Round 2
Week 3: Making New Disciples
The “Great Commission,” as it is called, sends Jesus’ disciples out into the world to make new disciples. We are to go into all the world, presenting the Good News message and inviting others to become disciples. A disciple is one who follows the teacher, learning from the teacher, and doing what the teacher instructs.
16. Pray for children.
Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” Matthew 19:14
It is true that children are the future of the church. Children and young families are a sign of a healthy, vital congregation.
Pray for the children, youth and young families already in your churches.
Pray for the church to create opportunities to meet the needs of children.
Pray for new workers to come to the church that will have a heart for and gift in ministry to children.
Pray for children in your mission field.
Pray for your church to reach out to these children in creative and effective ways.
