ACUMC Prayer Challenge for 2022

This formatted plan gives a focus for personal, family and church prayer. Blessings on the Prayer Journey, Pastor Marjory


We pray for your Spirit to lead us each step of this New Year. We ask that you will guide our decisions and turn our hearts to deeply desire you above all else. We ask that you will open doors needing to be opened and close the ones needing to be shut tight.

We ask that you would help us release our grip on the things to which you’ve said “no,” “not yet,” or “wait.” We ask for help to pursue you first, above every dream and desire you’ve put within our hearts. Amen


We ask for your wisdom, for your strength and power to be constantly present within us. We pray you will make us strong and courageous for the road ahead. Give us ability beyond what we feel able, let your gifts flow freely through us, so that you would be honored by our lives, and others would be drawn to you.

We pray that you’d keep us far from the snares and traps of temptations. That you would whisper in our ear when we need to run, and whisper in our heart when we need to stand our ground. Amem


We pray for your protection over our families and friends. We ask for your hand to cover us and keep us distanced from the evil intent of the enemy; that you would be a barrier to surround us, that we’d be safe in your hands. We pray that you would give us discernment and insight beyond our years, to understand your will, hear your voice, and know your ways.

Lord, keep our footsteps firm, on solid ground, helping us to be consistent and faithful. Give us supernatural endurance to stay the course, not swerving to the right or to the left, or being too easily distracted by other things that would seek to call us away from a close walk with you. Please, guide and protect Alexander Chapel. Amen


Forgive us for the times we have worked so hard to be self-sufficient, forgetting our need for you, living independent of your spirit. Forgive us for letting fear and worry control our minds, and for allowing pride and selfishness to wreak havoc over our lives. Forgive us for not following your ways and being distant from your presence. Amen


We confess our need for you… fresh… new… again. We ask that you make all things new, in our hearts, in our minds, in our lives, for this coming year. We pray for your refreshing over us.

Keep your words of truth planted firmly within us, help us to keep focused on what is pure and right, give us the power to be obedient to your word. And when the enemy reminds us where we have been, hissing his lies and attacks our way, we trust that your voice speaks louder and stronger, as you remind us we are safe with you and your purposes and plans will not fail. We ask that you will be our defense and rear guard, keeping our way clear, removing the obstacles, and covering the pitfalls. Lord, lead us on your level ground. Amen


We ask you to provide for our needs, We pray for your grace and favor. Cover us with your presence and blessing, Help us prosper in ways that matter to you. Take charge of every plan you have birthed in our heart to succeed. Grant us your strength in all things. We pray that others will take notice of your goodness in a way that will cause them to say, “These are the ones that the Lord has blessed.”

Help us to be known as great givers, who are humble, generous and kind. Lead us to look to the needs of others and not be consumed by only our own wants and desires. May we be lovers of holy truth, and the fruits of your spirit be evident in our lives – your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Amen


Shine your light in us, through us, and over us. Set your way before us. Lead us to make a difference in this world, for your glory and purposes.. May we reflect your peace and hope to a world that desperately needs your presence and healing. Hear our prayers for those who ask us to intercede for them and answer according to your perfect will.

Lord, hear our prayers. Speak into our lives – your servants are listening. Be our guide, wisdom, and protection. We give you all the praise and glory. Your love and grace never ceases to amaze us. You alone are our God and we worship you alone, To God be the glory forever! Amen
