Beyond Evangelism: Establishing a lifelong faith in Jesus

July 05, 2021

Dear FFICM Prayer Partners, 

Rich read Matthew 5:43-48 and invited us to pray for our enemies. God’s character is abundant love, which is undeserving and unconditional. God is kind and good to all people. We want to be like God is, kind and loving even to our enemies. The Christian life is very unusual! Holy Spirit, help us to abide in you . 

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[i] and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Below you will find a prayer guide to support you as you accompany us in prayer and worship this week. May God bless your time in the quiet place with hope and peace.
