Week 5 Transforming Church and community
Jesus calls us to not only make new disciples, but in the process to transform the world. That starts with transforming our church and our community into a more loving, Christ-centered, grace-filled place.
29. Pray that our community would be transformed.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free. . ..” Luke 4:18
Not only are we to make disciples of Jesus Christ, but we must transform the world, and specifically our community, to reflect the Kingdom of God.
• Pray for the specific needs of your community.
• Pray for the powers that promote injustice to be exposed and or courage to help bring change.
• Pray for God’s peace to move through the community and change lives.
