Prayer Vigil 2021

Our church will be praying from sunup to sundown (5 am to 9 pm).  At your convenience, quietly enter the sanctuary and spend as much time as you like praying.

If you cannot attend in person, feel free to set aside a special time of prayer at home.

The prayer vigil was inspired by the planning discussions we are having about the future of Mt. Olive. The Ministry Council, Elders, and church planning committee are requesting prayers for God’s guidance and direction.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  Phil. 4:6.

 

PRAYER VIGIL – LIST OF PRAYERS

Our prayers are based on Matthew 28:18-20

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Pray as your heart leads.  Here are some ideas to pray for:

  • Thankfulness for the monetary blessing of paying off the church debt and for our facility
  • Thankfulness for the gifts of congregational life and our church family
  • Guidance as we plan for the future of our church
  • Patience and wisdom to know where the Lord is leading Mt. Olive
  • Our Pastor, Ministry Council, Elders, and our church staff
  • That new leaders would rise up from within the congregation or be led to Mt. Olive
  • Individual and congregational commitment to the Great Commission given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ
  • That as individuals and as a congregation we strive to be devoted disciples who are missionally focused by reaching (we reach out to the lost), building (we instruct in the ways of discipleship) and sending (we go out as disciples for more reaching)
  • Existing ministries of Mt. Olive, that they may help ease suffering and proclaim the Gospel
