September 2017 Territorial Prayer Focus

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness” (Colossians 2:6–7).

Receiving Christ as Lord is the beginning of our Christian walk. Pray that all Salvationists, guided by the Holy Spirit, will
engage in spiritual disciplines which root, build up and strengthen their spiritual development: scripture, meditation,
prayer, worship, study of God’s Word, tithing, social justice. Find resources at https://salvationist.ca/spiritual-life/spiritual-disciplines/english-resources/
