SEPTEMBER 4

Welcome back!

I hope that yesterday was a special day of intercession.

Today, we are going to pray for more love in our lives and in our church.

I want to encourage you to take a few minutes to read all of 1 Corinthians 13.

(Go ahead, I’ll wait while you do.)

Can you tell that love is a really big deal to God? There are so many New Testament verses on love. I want to encourage you to do a word study sometime. Jesus and all His people were all about love.

Now meditate on this one…

1 Corinthians 14:1 (NLT): “Let love be your highest goal!”

Let’s pray today that The Holy Spirit grows our ability to love.

First of all, ask God to help you see His love for you. You might even turn over to Romans 5:5, and ask The Holy Spirit to help you see you the way He sees you.

Now, ask Him to help our church be known for love. Ask Him to form our community into a community that puts the goals and interests of others above our own.

You can pray something like this:

“Father, today I pray that you would make me a person of love. I repent for the bitterness that is in my heart. Please forgive me as I forgive those who have sinned against me. Help me love the way you love. I pray that you would help me see people the way you see people. Help our church love those around us. Pour out your love into thousands of hearts in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. Help us be known for your love.”

Now, today, take this prayer with you throughout the day to your Zoom calls, your class at school, your interactions with your neighbors or roommate. Let’s make love our highest goal today.

Love,

Pastor Andy
