A response to God’s grace
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.  Romans 12:1-2

        In our present time and culture, discerning the way of the Lord is both critical and often challenging.  With deception all around, the “pattern of the world” can be easy to overlook, leaving us susceptible to its patterns becoming our patterns.  Yet this need not be the case.  The Bible says we can recognize what is of God and what is not, by a renewed mind and transformed lives! 

    By placing complete trust in Jesus, and offering ourselves to Him, we give Him the reigns to our heart and mind.  That means His heart becomes what moves us, and His Truth is what we stand for. It’s not a difficult concept, however in practice it quickly challenges our flesh and independence.  Let pray this month for strength to truly offer ourselves wholly to God as living sacrifices, and for discernment to navigate our days with His wisdom.

God’s Family
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.  Galatians 5:1

~ Seek wisdom to discern freedom and bondage, and the ability to refrain from taking up the burdens of bondage, out of old habit.

~ Pray for thorough healing from the wounds and after effects caused by the bondage that has been lifted.

~ May God teach us to steward our freedom with a heart after His own.

~ Pray for skill and creativity in using our freedom to serve one another, and thus build up the Body of Christ.

Family
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.  Ephesians 5:21

~ Pray that the Lord would give us wisdom to honor the institution of family as He has ordered it.

~ May the Lordship of Christ remain as the highest priority in our family dynamics, with all else flowing out of this.

~ May our love for Jesus be displayed in our service and submission to one another.

~ Pray that the Lord would place the lonely in families, and raise up families with a passion to seek out the lonely.

Education
For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.  Ecclesiastes 7:12 

See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.  Colossians 2:8

~ Pray that God will fill our schools and universities with teachers that will teach truth and wisdom as He has defined it, and not the wisdom of this world.

~ May God teach us to prioritize the education of our children, including an unwillingness to compromise the teaching of God’s truths.

~ Pray that education in the way of discipleship of every believer would go beyond a casual practice in our    
   churches, and match the priority which Christ, Himself has assigned it.

Business
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.  There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.  1 Corinthians 12:4-6

~ Pray that the Lord would move upon business owners and leaders with wisdom and strategy during these challenging economic times.

~ May God move throughout the business sector and make His presence and Lordship known.

~ May businesses and employers be run in a way that honors God, and fosters a thriving environment and economy for the whole of society.

Government

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.  1 Timothy 2:1-2

~ Pray that the purposes of our God ordained leaders would be served, and that ultimately He will be glorified by what is accomplished.

~ May the blessing, wisdom and knowledge of God’s salvation and forgiveness be known to our leaders.

New Opportunities

Please pray for the leadership of TOGETHER – the director, board members, and volunteers, that God would direct their steps and open doors for both deeper unity and greater gospel advancement throughout our region. May God’s Kingdom come in our communities as it is in heaven!
