June 2017 Territorial Prayer Focus

The Apostle Paul said, “I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1: 16). Let us pray that we will faithfully proclaim the gospel, that through our spoken word people will come into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ (Romans 10:14).

The Gospel is the good news that God is in the business of restoring broken lives through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Let us pray for an evidence of gospel transformation.  Let us celebrate and thank God for all He has done, is doing and will do.  Read this month’s Salvationist story ‘House of Hope’ for examples of God’s transforming work.

This Gospel sets forth Jesus Christ as the living Savior, Master, Life, and Hope of all who put their trust in Him. It tells us that the eternal destiny of all people depends on a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. The Gospel assures us that all who have entrusted their lives to Jesus Christ are born-again children of God (John 1:12), indwelt, empowered, and assured of their status and hope by the Holy Spirit (Rom. 7:6, 8:9-17).

As the gospel is shared day by day all across our territory let us pray that lives are drawn to Jesus (John 12:32). 

Pray for the Newfoundland and Labrador Divisional Congress and the Territorial Commissioning events which begin June 30. Pray for responsiveness to the Gospel and obedience to the movement of the Holy Spirit.
