God has called each church to have a positive impact on its local community. The church is God’s people called out of the world and then sent back into the world to influence it for God. Consider your local neighbourhood and community. Pray for its leaders and influencers. Pray for the needs you see. Consider in what way you can be God’s hands and feet. Seek to bring God’s blessing. Build relationships. Meet needs. Then share about Jesus (see Luke 10:1-9).
Pray for organisations and ministries, such as our own CityLife Community Care, that they will be able to continue to meet many needs and heal many of the hurts that people carry in their lives.“God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.” [Acts 10:38. NLT]
