We here in Kairos firmly believe in the power of prayer and cling to the credos, “we move forward with prayer or not at all” and “more prayer, more power.” With that said, we invite you to join us in praying into the following prayer focuses we have set for 2020. In addition, if you are looking for someone to pray for you, we would love to be of service. Please send all such requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
KAIROS OF SAN DIEGO 2020 PRAYER FOCUS
May we pray for the following as often as the Spirit convicts and brings to memory.
That we would Be a God Dependent Community which Seeks His Guidance for the ministry.
“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed” (Mark 1:35).
- That we would Be a United, Christ Centered, Spirit Led, and Spirit Empowered Community.
“Holy Father…may they be one as we are one” (John 17:11). “Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness” (Luke 4:1). “‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty” (Zech. 4:6).
- That we would be Humble Servants.
“Whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:44-45).
- That we would Learn what it means to have Greater Trust in the LORD.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” (Pro. 3:5-6).
- That we would Grow in our Understanding and Practice of Listen, Listen, Love, Love.
“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” (James 1:19). “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:34-35).
- That God would Inspire and Motivate us to Live UP to our Potential.
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Eph. 2:10).
- That God would Use Us to Bring Volunteers and Leaders to the ministry.
“Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field” (Matt. 9:38).
- That we would be Reminded of the Mission: Changing Lives (Inmates, Volunteers, Custody, etc.), Transforming Hearts, & Impacting the World via the 4-day weekends, the weekly prayer and share groupings, and our Faithful Prayers.
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matt. 5:13-16).
- That we would Grow in our Desire to Pray for Others.
(Kairos Leaders, Church Leaders, Leaders of Nations, The Body of Christ, The Unsaved, RJD Administration, Custody Officers, The Sick, The Hurting, Your Enemies, Your Family, etc.)
That we would Be Known for Being Disciples of Jesus Christ; Demonstrating our Christ Like Character of Love, Humility, Meekness, Obedience, Servanthood, Compassion, Forgiveness, Kindness, Mercy, Generosity, Being Quick to Listen and Slow to Anger, etc.
