This last month, I started a new habit…
Taking an early morning prayer walk around the building that my church meets in.
I have done this in my neighborhood for years and I have spent tons of time walking around other buildings and other neighborhoods.
But, it wasn’t until recently that I started doing a prayer walk around the movie theater that Thrive Church gathers in weekly.
I’ll post more about the ‘why’ I take prayer walks later in the week, but selfishly…I love the time I spend on these prayer walks!
It’s so refreshing, it’s so powerful, it’s so calming and it’s just an amazing time.
Here’s what I prayed for today:
-Gods blessings and favor on our church
-Lost people would find Jesus and broken people will be healed
-The found would be challenged to take big steps of faith
-That God would use our time in this building to challenge and encourage us to go BE the church
-Thrives kids and youth to be poured into and released to help lead our church
-Thrives future kids and youth directors and for the funds to be raised for those positions
-Thrives future college ministry leader and for favor with students at CMU
-Our staff team and for God to increase our giving so we can increase their pay
-For Gods hand and favor for our outside fundraising efforts
-Spouses of Thrivers who aren’t followers of Jesus
-For continued growth (spiritual, numerical, financial)
-That we would outgrow this building
-We would always be focused and passionate about helping the next person find and follow Jesus
