This week try focusing on one part of the Lord’s Prayer and turn it into a prayer for the effects of Covid, or for the Free Methodist Church. Do this for a period of 5 or 10 minutes each day this week. You will be amazed at how this will deepen your prayer life.
Day One (April 12, 2020, Easter Sunday)
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed by Thy name
Easter is a great time to spend time praising God as it relates to the FMCIC and the world around us.
Day 2 (April 13, 2020)
Thy kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Think about what that would look like in your church and community and pray into that picture.
Day 3 (April 14, 2020)
Give us this day our daily bread
This prayer is becoming very relevant these days.
Day 4 (April 15, 2020)
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
This would be a good time to review your own heart to see there are sins you need to seek forgiveness for and also if there is bitterness or coldness in your heart towards anyone because they have offended you.
Day 5 (April 16, 2020)
And lead us not into temptation
Jesus urged His disciples to watch and pray so that they would not fall into temptation.
Day 6 (April 17, 2020)
But deliver us from evil (the evil one)
Jesus went about doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil.
Day 7 (April 18, 2020)
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
This is a great way to end a prayer as we focus on the power and glory of our great and good God.
