Let’s read aloud together the following passage, confession and prayer:
1 Peter 2:9-10 NIV
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Cape Town Commitment IV.6.a – Discerning the Will of Christ for World Evangelism: Prayer
We will pray with unity, focus, persistence, and biblically-informed clarity: for God to send labourers into every corner of the world, in the power of his Spirit; for the lost in every people and place to be drawn to God by his Spirit, through the declaration of the truth of the gospel and the demonstration of Christ’s love and power; for God’s glory to be revealed and Christ’s name to be known and praised because of the character, deeds and words of his people. We will cry out for our brothers and sisters who suffer for the name of Christ; for God’s kingdom to come, that God’s will may be done on earth as in heaven, in the establishment of justice, the stewardship and care of creation, and the blessing of God’s peace in our communities.
Prayer: “Heavenly Father, thank you that you chose us to be your people called by your name. Thank you that you invite us to participate in your history making work. We ask that you stir and lead our hearts to love through fervent prayer for the lost to be drawn to you by your Spirit. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
