Prayerful Preparations for Easter

Tonight we will be having a special time of prayer to prepare our hearts for Easter. In preparation for our prayer meeting we have added the following starter ideas to our prayer list. This is by far not the extent of our prayers, but just breaking the ice.

That we all will be reminded of God’s love expressed in Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
That people will come to know Christ as personal Savior.
That people will come back into a daily walk with God.
That we all will be reminded of those who still need to come to the cross.
That we all will invite others to come and worship on Easter.
That people who come, will find Cornerstone to be warm and welcoming.
That people who are invited will come.
That all of our services will be balanced for space.
That our ministries will be adequately staffed.
That our church will be able to continue to minister to families beyond Easter.
That the music and the message will effectively glorify God and encourage others.
That God would bring people back to join a small group Bible Study on the Love Languages.
That the praise and worship time will be engaging and exciting.
That the message will be life changing
