The apostle Paul was a prayer recruiter. Paul wrote to the Colossian church, “And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should” (Colossians 4:3-4).
He said something similar to the church in Thessalonica, “Brothers, pray for us” (1 Thessalonians 5:25). Then to the church in Rome, Paul wrote, “Now I beseech you, brothers, through the Lord Jesus Christ, and through the love of the Spirit, that you strive with me in your prayers to God for me” (Romans 15:30). To the Corinthians, Paul said, “You also helping together in prayer for us, that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the gift granted to us through many” (2 Corinthians 1:11). (1)
Paul, the superb church planter, knew he couldn’t make it without prayer. That is why it is essential that we have a group of prayer warriors in place who are constantly praying for MISSIODEI, it’s leaders, and the city.
There are several people at Chapel of the Lake who meet regularly to pray for MISSIODEI. We are also inviting individuals to pray for us by signing up for the MISSIODEI Newsletter where reports and prayer points are shared on a monthly basis. It would be a tremendous blessing if you would be a member of our Prayer Shield. You can register to receive our newsletters here.
