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.
