Our Prayer, Priority & Privilege
Praying for effectiveness as we reach out to those we seek to serve is the primary ministry Christ calls us to.
“Lord, teach us to pray.” This request came from Jesus’ closest followers who noticed the power and priority of Jesus’ prayer life and wanted to share in that experience! Jesus modeled for them a simple and profound way to pray in humble dependence and gratitude that would bring them into alignment with God and His purposes. (Luke 11)
As we extend Help and Hope and desire to see transformed lives in every corner of the community, we recognize the priority of this kind of prayer – humble, dependent, grateful, and attentive to God’s purposes and plans. We don’t want just what we can do; we want what God can do!
Will you join us in praying for the Mission and the people? At 10am each day during the week, we stop what we are doing and gather to pray. We would love to have you join your heart in prayer with us – wherever you are at 10am!
See below for the specific prayer focus. Thank you so much for your prayers for Mission Southside, our volunteers and the people that we serve. Lord, teach us to pray!
Seek God for the City 2017
March 1 to Palm Sunday
For the weeks leading up to Palm Sunday, Mission Southside staff and volunteers, along with many area churches will be participating in "Seek God for the City 2017, Prayers of Biblical Hope."
You are invited to join us in this daily prayer focus that helps us seek God's face, and lifts our eyes to pray God's heart for different groups of people in our community...for Youth, Sick People, Ethnic Communities, Law Enforcement, Mothers, Fathers, Broken Families, Pastors, Unemployed People, Children and more.
We know our community needs prayer, and this is a beautiful way for individuals, groups, and families to be intentional in making prayer for others a daily priority together.
We have a few Seek God for the City prayer guide booklets available at Mission Southside, but highly recommend downloading the "Seek God for the City 2017" app. It is .99¢ well spent! There is also a free PDF children's prayer guide.
