Prayer Topic #3:
A Prayer for the Vida Christian Church Family
Reflections of the Heart:
Our House has become their house! Therefore, as Windsor Village Church Family, let us pray for the successful implementation of a Latino Worship Experience at the Vida Christian Church.
Our Father, we thank You for planting the Vida Christian Church in the City of Houston. We thank You for Pastor Reinier de la Torre. Thank You, Lord, for all members who will attend. We give thanks to You, Lord, for You are good. Your mercy endures forever. Heavenly Father, Holy and Righteous is Your Name. You are a great God and a great King above all other gods. You are our God, and we are the people of Your pasture and the sheep of Your hand. Lord, You are our source and in You do we place our trust.
Righteous Father, let Your Kingdom come and Your will be done through the Vida Christian Church Family. Lord, we expect a great harvest of souls in our Latino community and city through the ministry of the Vida Church Family. We declare that those who do not know Your Son as their Lord and Savior will confess with their mouths the Lord Jesus and believe in their hearts that You raised Him from the dead. They will be saved! We declare that the Spirit of the Lord will rest upon Pastor Reinier de la Torre and the Vida Christian Church Family. As a result, we expect Your anointing to empower them to preach good tidings to the poor. They will comfort the brokenhearted and announce freedom to those who are captive. They will tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come. As the people of God, we declare that they will recognize those who labor among them and they will esteem each other in love. They will diligently study Your Word so that they may rightly divide it. Lord, we confess that mercy and truth will not forsake Pastor Reinier de la Torre and the Vida Christian Church Family; they will bind them around their necks and write them on their hearts. As they do this, they will have favor with You, and men. We declare that as they commit their works to You, their plans will succeed.
Holy Spirit, what should I pray for the Vida Christian Church Family
Holy Spirit, we ask You to save the lost in our communities. Touch the hearts of believers throughout our city to pray for the unsaved. Draw our Latino residents of this community, the surrounding communities, and throughout the Houston Metropolitan Area to the Vida Christian Church Family. Please fill each member with the knowledge of Your Word in all wisdom and spiritual understanding as they serve. Strengthen each of them and keep them healthy. Father, increase their stamina and perseverance to complete this divine assignment. Lord, let them know that You are with them. Bless the works of their hands to meet the needs of the Kingdom and to bless Your people. Lord, touch their hearts to perform every task assigned to them with excellence and great prudence. Holy Spirit, please draw the families of our communities closer to You and one another through the Vida Christian Church Family.
Loving Father, forgive the Vida Christian Church Family for all acts of sinfulness. Forgive those who may speak idle words against this vision. Forgive the Body of Christ for at times not representing Your Kingdom by witnessing to the unsaved. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind the Vida Christian Church Family of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help the Vida Christian Church Family not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.
You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power. You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created. We honor You as our King. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
