for a movement of new groups to begin in our churches, our Sunday Schools, and our small groups that will bring You glory and connect millions of souls to Jesus, Your Truth, Your community, and Your mission;
for pastors as they lead their church-members to be focused on Your Kingdom rather than a classroom;
for Gospel-driven groups that will see our neighborhoods through the eyes of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Lord I pray for leaders…
that we may put aside our differences and walk shoulder-to-shoulder with one another in unity of one big bold godly plan to change this world with the Gospel through Gospel-centered new groups;
who will lead their groups to pray big prayers, and boldly challenge their group members to live as ambassadors of the cross;
to humbly recognize that members follow and model the example of their group leader;
to arise from the fields of lostness; respond to the Gospel; and lead the next great harvest of souls in our nation.
I pray for disciples in Your church…
to know that they are a royal priesthood of believers who are saved to proclaim Your Name;
to set aside our sin and idols that encumber us in our spiritual race and blind us in our journey;
who will step-out of our comfort zones and faithfully step-in to the mission of a new group.
may our vision not be so small that we achieve it through our own strength and effort. Instead, may our vision be so big and bold that the world will see Your power at work; souls saved; and Your Son Jesus Christ glorified. Amen.
