The Church of Jesus Christ is the Church of all nations. The Church of all nations is the Community of people gathered together in the Name of Jesus Christ, whether in worship, discipleship or fellowship. The Bible tells us that where two or three are gathered in His Name, Jesus Christ is there with them. Let us remind ourselves that we are the Church anywhere and everywhere. In all circumstances, we carry the aroma of Christ with us. We exhibit the fruit of the Spirit to nourish people around us. The Holy Spirit gives us the unction to preach the Gospel. We are His ambassadors. We are all given the ministry of reconciliation. Even if we do not have the opportunity to meet people of all nations, we are called to intercede. We can intercede for believers around the world in the unique ways they share the good news. We can pray for multiethnic churches, that they would be a compelling picture of God’s unity, hope and the truth of His message of forgiveness, reconciliation and restoration.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
Dear Father God,
Your heart is for the nations. You so loved the world that You gave Your one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. You did not send Your Son into the world to condemn the world, but to SAVE the world through Him. Use us LORD! We are Your hands and feet. We are Your mouthpiece. Your Son is our Head. We are His Body. Send us LORD! Send us into all corners of the world. Send us anywhere and everywhere. Give us the unction to preach, heal and teach. We have the power and the authority to release the people out of darkness into Your Kingdom of Light. (Mark 16:15-18) Hallelujah!
Your heart is turned to the children. Let the children come to You and be blessed. We pray for protection against all illnesses, injuries (including sports-related), and inner hurts. We pray for protection against all ungodly influences (through speech, thinking and emotions). Help us to teach them the Fear of the LORD. (Luke 12:5)
We pray against wickedness aimed at stealing, killing and destroying mankind. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; Jesus has come that we may have life, and have life to the full. (John 10:10)
We shall go and make disciples of all nations and teach them to obey everything You have commanded us. And surely, You are with us always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:19-20)
