Fifty Days of Prayer | Day 8
Praying for Church Planting through the Book of Acts
The early church had grown to such a degree that it had begun to prove a challenge to the apostles. They were unable to devote their time to teaching and prayer. So, the office of the deacon was born. The qualifications are spelled out in greater detail in Paul's letters, but here the apostles looked for two things: men "full of the Spirit and wisdom". Their service to the church allowed for greater fruitfulness in the church. So, we pray for godly men full of the Spirit and wisdom.
We Pray for Godly Men
- Pray that God would build a core team filled with godly men who are filled with the Spirit and wisdom.
- Pray that God raise up similar men from within the community of our target area.
- Pray that God would provide servant leaders who would help to balance the load of ministry and church planting.
