What To Pray For Your Church

Philippians 1:9-11

All of us know that we should be praying for our church. But many of us struggle to know exactly what it is that we should be praying. We might begin by asking, “What are the needs of our church?” Or we might feel we need to know about a number of specifics. But is this the right approach. Don Carson says, “Many of us devote most of our praying in private and in public to personal matters removed from gospel interests.”

If that is so, we clearly need more instruction on praying. Today, we will allow the apostle Paul to teach us how to pray for fellow believers and our local church.
