6 Things That I Was Taught By The Preschool-Kindergarten Class At Vacation Bible School



Community-wide Easter Weekend 2018 Prayer Guide 4

1 Peter 5:5-6

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

 

Peter reminds us that we are to be in subjection to each other. Peter recognized that there is strength in numbers.

 

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12                                                                                                                                    Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

 

Peter was taught the importance of working together for the cause of Christ is better than doing it all by yourself.

 

John 4:36-38                                                                                                                                                      And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

 

Today’s Prayer:

           

Pray that we would see the need and the benefit of submission.

           

Pray that as a church we would practice being subject one to another.

           

Pray that we be clothed with humility.

           

Pray that we would not be proud.

           

Pray that God would give us more grace as we become more humble.

           

Pray that we would truly be humbled under the mighty hand of God.

           

Pray that God would exalt us in due time.

 
 

Blessings!

Community Wide Easter Weekend Prayer Guide Day 1

Prayer Guide for  
Community-wide Easter Weekend.                                 
March 31 – April 1, 2018
 
Numbers 6:22-26   
22 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,
24 The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
25 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
 
 
Here are some suggestions to help you pray for our upcoming Easter Weekend 2018.
 
1. May God Bless the members of Hilltop Baptist Church (name them individually).
 
2. Ask the Lord to bless you (Be specific! Remember, you have not because you ask not!)
 
3. Ask the Lord to keep you (Keep = To protect, to attend to, to take heed to, and to regardth
Ask the Lord to keep the members of Hilltop Baptist Church.
 
4.Ask the Lord to make His face shine upon you and others of Hilltop Baptist Church
A blessing is a hopeful prayer. A blessing was one way of asking
 for God’s divine favor to rest upon others. The ancient blessing in
 these verses helps us understand what a blessing was supposed to do.
Its five parts conveyed hope that God would (1) bless and keep them
(favor and protect); (2) make his face shine upon them (be pleased);
(3) be gracious (merciful and compassionate); (4) turn his face
toward them (give his approval); (5) give peace. When you ask God to
bless others or yourself, you are asking him to do these five things.
The blessing you offer will not only help the one receiving it, it
will also demonstrate love, encourage others, and provide a model of
caring to others. [Life Application Study Bible]
 
5. Ask the Lord to be gracious to you and the members of Hilltop Baptist Church.
 
6. Ask the Lord to lift up His countenance upon thee and the members of Hilltop Baptist Church.
Countenance = Forefront, favor.
 
7. Ask the Lord to give you and the members of Hilltop Baptist Church peace. 
 
8. Ask God to give you at least one person/family to invite to our Community-wide Easter 
      Weekend.
 
9. Ask to send someone that needs to be saved, and that they be saved in our services.
 
Pastor Bob!
