Bible Verse & Quote on Prayer
“So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, and you are Christ's, and Christ is God's.” (1 Corinthians 3: 21-23)
“There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, ‘Mine!’” - Abraham Kuyper
Congregational Bible Prayer - A Prayer from Psalm 98
“I will extol you, my God and King,
and bless your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless you
and praise your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
and his greatness is unsearchable
The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
The Lord is good to all,
and his mercy is over all that he has made.
The Lord is faithful in all his words
and kind in all his works.
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
and bless his holy name forever and ever.”
Bible Prayer Story
Render to God what is God’s: Rahab & Achan - Joshua 6 & 7
Prayer for the Nations
Frontier People Groups are a subset of Unreached People Groups (less than 2% Evangelical and less than 5% Christian of all kinds). One-fourth of the world lives in challenging FPGs (less than 0.1% Christian of any kind). Half the population of all FPGs live in the 31 largest FPGs.
We pray for God to pour out His Holy Spirit for every Unreached People Group to have a movement to Christ, and for the Holy Spirit to lead the Frontier People Groups to love His Word and spread its influence, so that they will love Him with their whole being and walk in His ways.
To this end, we pray for the nations and people of:

Confession for Forgiveness
“You will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” (Psalm 51: 16-17)
“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.” (2 Thessalonians 2: 16-17)
