Pray for the Church
Praise God for His salvation freely offered to us. Ask Him to bring us conviction regarding any sin in our lives. Pray for Him to continue transforming us more and more into the image of His Son. Ask Him to use us to boldly tell His story of salvation to all who need to hear.
Pray for the City
In support of the Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, a national day of observance by the pro-life community on the third Sunday of January, we are praying for the lives of the unborn, for parents, and for all people to recognize the intrinsic value of all human life from the moment of conception to natural death. The annual Metro Birmingham Life Forum’s Prayer Vigil will be held Saturday, January 16 at the new Planned Parenthood building and The National March For Life will be Sunday, January 24, in Washington D.C. We’re also praying this week for Briarwood Presbyterian Church, PCA and Pastor Harry Reeder.
Day 1: Pray for pregnant women in our city and across the nation to comprehend the immeasurable value of the child they are carrying. Pray that God will give them strength, courage, and the relational support to choose life.
Day 2: Pray that the Church will stand in the gap for the unborn, the most defenseless of God’s children. Pray that we as a church would faithfully make disciples among the parents of the unborn.
Day 3: Pray for elected officials and medical professionals to experience conversion of mind and heart about supporting abortion on demand, and for court decisions that permit the destruction of the unborn to be permanently reversed.
Day 4: Pray for women and men who are mourning the loss of a child to abortion. Pray for them to recognize God's forgiveness for sin and to apply the truths of the gospel to themselves and experience God's mercy and peace.
Day 5: Pray for Sav-A-Life Ministries in Vestavia and Shelby County, Lifeline Children’s Services, Her Choice, Positive Choices, Life on Wheels, and other ministries in our city that offer resources, education, support, and counseling to couples facing crisis pregnancies. Pray that the gospel would go out through them and that many unbelieving men and women would turn to the Lord.
Day 6: Pray that Christians in Birmingham would truly grasp what it means to be “pro life,” actively defending the biblical truth that all human life is made in the image of God and holds significant value from the womb to the tomb.
Pray for the World
This week we want to pray Malachi 1:11, “From the rising of the sun to its setting, your name will be great among the nations.”
Day 1: Pray that Malachi 1:11 may be so among every people and in every place.
Day 2: Pray that as a church we would long for the day when every nation, every tribe, every tongue will bow at the Father’s feet and proclaim the greatness of His name.
Day 3: Pray that God would spend the lives of every man, woman, and child at The Church at Brook Hills to declare His glory in our homes, in our neighborhoods, in our city, and among the nations.
Day 4: Pray for the over 2 billion people in our world who do not have access to the good news that Christ is the one who saves. Pray for God to be glorified among these nations, these people groups.
Day 5: Praise God because He is worthy of all of our adoration and all of our affection and all of our devotion. Declare His worthiness over everything we have.
Day 6: Pray for God’s name to be great among the nations and toward that end bring about Malachi 1:11.
