As with any church project, prayer is the essential element that underpins Next Steps. We value your prayers and this page will give some prayer points for you to use including a downloadable guide.
Let us start by Praising & Giving Thanks to God:
For the unconditional love He has for us and His never-ending faithfulness.
For providing us with architects who really see the church’s vision for the development of the building here at BBC.
For the funds that have generously been given and the pledges received.
Now, here are some prayers you could use to ask God:
Pray that as our old church starts on a new journey that it can be a beacon of hope in our villages
For an even bigger vision of how God can use this building and our lives to build His Kingdom here.
Pray to ask how we can be a blessing in our day in our time in the service of others and that we leave a legacy for those who will come after us.
Pray for God’s wisdom as we proceed - Proverbs 24:3-4 “By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; 4 through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.”
For the love required to encourage and build up one another during this process and for protection from frustration and friction as we travel this journey together.
That throughout this journey of redeveloping our buildings, we continue to love one another, even when we disagree and that we to do all we can to work for unity, be at peace & ensure bitterness is avoided. Hebrews 12:14-15 “Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. 15 See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many”
To help you know what you should give financially and for the faith that He will take care of your needs.
Please pray for the people involved in the practicalities of this project that:
- they will have wisdom in their decisions
- they and their families will be kept safe and healthy and protected
