RISE Campaign | RISE to Knowledge | Prayer Guide, Week 4
1 I will sing of the steadfast love of the Lord, forever;
with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.
2 For I said, “Steadfast love will be built up forever;
in the heavens you will establish your faithfulness.”
3 You have said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one;
I have sworn to David my servant:
4 ‘I will establish your offspring forever,
and build your throne for all generations.’”
We all owe our faith in Christ to the labor of others. The Holy Spirit, of course, is the one who gives faith and establishes the community of faith. But the Spirit also uses others to instruct us in the gospel, for “how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard” (Rom 10:14ff)? We want Trinity’s building to play a role in this: to celebrate the Lord’s work in building us up, and hoping for the Lord’s work in using us to build others up. As we witness the foundation of Trinity’s building being laid and its walls rising, may it serve as an opportunity for thanksgiving of the past and a hopeful anticipation of the future. Today, pray along these lines.
- Give thanks to the Lord for the witness and faith of those who taught us the gospel—maybe even decades ago—and for their enduring impact upon Trinity in and through us. Name them, and thank God for them.
- Christianity isn’t new or inventive, but old and teeming with wisdom. Pray that God would enable Trinity to become a place where the ancient truths of the faith are embraced and cherished.
- Pray that God would establish Trinity as an enduring community in Owasso and northeast Oklahoma, and that he would use his church to establish future generations in the faith.
