Most of the time, we ask for prayer for the various ministries and partners of TIBM. But TIBM is a house church too and, like all other churches, needs prayer for it to function well as a church.
Please pray that as we gather on Sunday nights, we would each be fully present. Ask God to nourish us during the time of worship through songs and give us joy. Pray that the Holy Spirit would be the teacher during the sermon and readings from God’s Word and that we would welcome His reminders throughout the week. Pray that as we pray for each other, we would throw all our burdens onto the Lord and receive His peace and comfort. Pray that the Spirit would move among us as we proclaim the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ in taking the Lord’s Supper together. Ask God to bring healing and strength to us during our fellowship over dinner.
Ask God to help us to love each other more with the sacrificial love He has commanded of His followers. Pray that we would be slow to anger and quick to forgive, that no bitter root might take hold. Pray that we would mourn with those who mourn and rejoice with those who rejoice. Ask God to knit us closer together that we might better display the reconciliation through Christ which is available to all peoples. As Jesus prayed, pray that we might become perfectly one so that the world would know that the Father sent Jesus and loved us.
