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.
34. Pray for involvement in Risk-taking mission and service.
“But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.
Being in mission means that we become conscious of the needs of those around us and reach out to make a difference. “Risk-taking” moves us beyond doing that which is comfortable to respond with compassion and love.
• Pray that the people of our church could be involved in hands-on mission projects.
• Pray that we could be aware of the needs of our neighborhood and find ways to meet people’s real needs.
• Pray that the people of our church will take risks for the sake of the Gospel.
