Pray First Prayer Focus



PERSONAL REFLECTION — MAKE DISCIPLES:  “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen” (Matthew 28:18-20).

  • Praise God that we serve under His authority — not our own.
  • Praise Him that He is bringing the nations to us and pray we will be used to reach the world.
  • Praise — He has given us the curriculum — all things He commanded of the disciples.
  • Praise — He has given us the promise of His presence. Praise Him for our privilege of being a part of what He is doing to advance the kingdom.

Pray with us this week:

  • Ask God to heal the many VJF members struggling with pain, cancer, the side effects of chemotherapy, and other physical and mental health issues.
  • Pray for our pastors as they share the Word. Ask God’s   Spirit to move within them, giving them boldness and clarity as they speak. Ultimately, pray that God is glorified through them.
  • Pray for Prime Minister Netanyahu, for God to give him wisdom. Pray for Israeli soldiers as they rightly defend their country. Pray for all those who lost loved ones and those who are still hostages in Gaza. Pray for Israelis to come before the Almighty God and cling to Him to find peace amid turmoil in Jesus the Messiah.
  • Pray for Ukrainian families suffering from the trauma of losing their homes and loved ones, and the many missionaries who are tending to both their spiritual and physical needs each day.
  • For our missionaries,  pray for their strength and perseverance to run the race;   that   the   Lord   will   bring  people   across   their   path   who   would  encourage   and   uplift   them.
  • Pray for   God’s provision over their family and ministry;   for His protection against illness,  injury,   and danger.
  • Pray   that   the  joy  of   the   Lord   will   sustain  our   missionaries  in   every   trial   and  setback;   that   the   light   of   God   would  shine   through   them,   lifting   darkness   and  oppression   as   they   share   His   love.
  • Ask the   Lord to make   fertile   ground   and  prepare   hearts   to   receive   the   gospel;   that  He   set   up   divine   appointments   and   open  doors   for   ministry   that   only   He   can   make  possible.
