WEDNESDAY 22 JUNE

This morning – begin by reading Psalm 126, giving God thanks and asking to be filled up with joy for Him.

Psalm 126

A song of ascents.

When the Lord restored the fortunes of[a] Zion,
    we were like those who dreamed.[b]
Our mouths were filled with laughter,
    our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
    “The Lord has done great things for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us,
    and we are filled with joy.

Restore our fortunes,[c] Lord,
    like streams in the Negev.
Those who sow with tears
    will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
    carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
    carrying sheaves with them.

We heard Nicola talk on Sunday about compassion. We heard that Jesus over and over again, moves towards the hurting, the suffering, the ashamed, the lonely and the hopeless.

 

Much like we did on Sunday, spend three minutes waiting on God and listening to what he has to say for us about our compassion for others and His incredible compassion for us in our situations, and this will be followed by a time of all praying together.

 

Receiving compassion from God, and filling our hearts for compassion for those around us.

Pray:-

  • Pray to be filled with and reminded of the amazing compassion God had for us, to send His Son down to save us in our suffering by suffering for us.
  • To keep Jesus’ compassion for us at the centre of everything we do and say.
  • To ask for compassion for those in our lives we know are hurting and suffering.
  • To absorb our town with compassion for those in need, through our social action ministries and what stirs our hearts into compassionate action in the ways we can go beyond simply sympathy and empathy.

 

Prayers for Compassion

  • Ask God to fill your life with the compassion that he has shown us. Spend some time bringing to Him specific examples in your live where you need to receive His compassion.
  • Spend some time lifting up to God examples of people in your life that you want to show more compassion for, that goes beyond showing sympathy and empathy, and becomes more Jesus-like.
  • Pray for compassion to be filled in our Sunday meetings and everyday lives, for this to be natural part of our church culture that goes beyond aforementioned sympathy for our church family’s hurt and suffering.

 

Praying for Sunday Morning

Pray:-

  • For a powerful and prophetic time of worship, led by Adam Hughes
  • For Richard Lodge and Joanna Mcdonald leading the meetings
  • For Ron Lamb continuing the ‘Sit at His Feet’ preaching series, titled ‘Gentle and Humble’
  • For a responsive answer to a ‘call to the front’ to receive the Holy Spirit leading out of Ron’s preach.
  • Encounters with God in all of the kids and youth ministries

 

Praying for Small Groups

We will have many people in our various small groups who need to be shown compassion, whether that is our church family who pray for things in their lives every week, wider family and friends of those in our small groups, or for people we see in our social action ministries that clearly need compassion for the hurt in their situations.

Pray:-

  • For compassion to be lived and breathed through all our small groups.
  • For the times together to be spent meaningfully, with purpose and to keep Jesus at the centre of all of our small groups times together.
  • That much will be gained from spending time discussing the ‘Sit at His Feet’ series together, unpacking the message and growing in intimacy with Jesus.
  • That the Kingdom of God will be strengthened in High Wycombe as the town is covered in prayer and compassion through small groups throughout the week, not just on a Sunday!

We have been live-streaming our Sunday meetings for over 6 months now and this form is to have a better idea of who’s watching and hear your feedback so we know how we can serve you better. Thank you for filling in the form.

 

At King’s, our giving is as much a part of our worship as our singing.

Both are simply a response to what Jesus has done for us. All of our pastoral ministries, our staff costs and our outreach into Wycombe and overseas are paid for by financial gifts from the church. So at King’s we believe in giving regularly, generously, joyfully and sacrificially, knowing we’re advancing the kingdom.

We’re inviting everyone in our church family to take part in a ‘giving challenge’ – to prayerfully consider taking the next step in your giving for at least three months, and to see what God will do.

This form is totally anonymous – it just gives us a big picture of how many people are taking up the challenge. 

 

(Required)

How would you describe your current giving style?
What would you like to do for the duration of the Giving Challenge?

Rejoicing in Overflow

King’s Church Week of 24/7 Prayer

 

The following is a suggested prayer structure.  Each section should take approximately 10 minutes.  However, be flexible, and enjoy going off-piste by adding any prayer points you would like!  Spend longer on the sections that are meaningful for you, and feel free to leave out others as time permits.  Whatever you do, however, please pray – and in particular pray through today’s specific prayer points so we seek God’s Kingdom with others as a united, praying church.

 

  1. Praise and Worship

Spend some time praising God.  Use songs, listen to music, speak out words of praise.  You can find some worship songs to sing, or reflect upon by clicking here.

 

  1. Pray in tongues

If you have the gift of tongues, use this now and allow the Holy Spirit to build you up (1 Corinthians 14:4). If you have never spoken in tongues, you can spend time asking the Holy Spirit to receive this specific gift, or alternatively seek God’s blessing for your time of prayer. If you have the gift of tongues, pray for a full 10 minutes, and consider the following: what has changed in my thinking, how have my emotions shifted, what do I want to pray for now that may be different from, how has my view of Jesus changed?

 

  1. Waiting on the Lord

Take some time to still your thoughts and sit before the Lord in silence. Ask him to reveal to you anything that is coming between you and Him. Confess anything that comes to mind.  This will enable you to pray without anything coming between you and God.  If God highlights anyone He wants you to forgive, muster up the courage and strength to forgive them from your heart (Mark 11:25).

 

  1. Reading and Praying Scripture

Read today’s passage.  What is God showing you or talking to you about from that passage: for instance, what strikes you as unusual, interesting, provocative, or puzzling?  Ask God and pray about those things.

 

Acts 1:6-7 Then the disciples gathered around Jesus and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

It’s tempting to ask the wrong questions of Jesus at times. This was a monumental occasion: Jesus was just about to ascend to heaven to return to His Father right in front of His disciples. What is significant is that His concerns were not those of his followers.  They were preoccupied with the local, but Jesus was concerned not solely with the local but also with the global.  Jesus was promising to do something huge amongst his disciples: to pour out the power of the Holy Spirit, the same Spirit that had filled Jesus to fulfil his mission on earth, so that they could reach the local (Jerusalem), the regional (Judea and Samaria) as well as the global (the ends of the earth).

The Church’s mission has not changed: we at King’s are part of the same cosmic plan as the early disciples.  We also need the same equipping as they did: the power of the Holy Spirit.  At King’s, we want to see unreached people groups in the Muslim world and in Asia reached by the Gospel.

 

  1. Intercession

To see Jesus’ commission fulfilled, we need to pray:

  • Pray for the mission team as they start to implement the church’s new mission strategy. Pray they would have wisdom to know which parts of the strategy to complement first and how best to implement them.
  • Pray for Jackie and Wes, who are currently back in the US connecting with their church, friends and Wes’ family. Pray that they would enjoy connecting with everyone and that their time in the US would be refreshing; that the Lord would be preparing them for their return to South Sudan as well.
  • Pray for Dan & Monica. Dan is involved in an outreach event amongst the expat churches that’s linked to a national event that is taking place in their country next month. Pray for ongoing good health and that Dan & Monica would know God’s refreshing, blessing and leading in all that they are doing.
  • Pray for all at KCK and the planning for the construction of the new church building. Pray for the ongoing protection of the congregation and that the residents surrounding the church’s existing building would not be antagonistic towards them.
  • Pray for the Pakistani community in High Wycombe and our witness to them at work, school and across the town. Pray for people within the Pakistani community to have supernatural encounters with Jesus through things such as dreams and visions.

Pray also for our mission to our town and local area. Please pray:

  • for many unbelieving visitors to join us on Sunday mornings
  • that our corporate meetings will be filled with prophetic insights that cause unbelievers to encounter Jesus in life-changing ways
  • salvation for many unbelievers through prophetic words
  • that supernatural encounters with Jesus would happen every single time we meet: on Sundays, in our small groups, as well as through our social-action and outreach ministries
  • an outbreak of supernatural, Holy Spirit-inspired healing in the church: physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological healing. We would experience this in our Sunday corporate meetings, on the streets, with our neighbours and friends, but also in our small groups
  1. Reflection

Write down anything that God has spoken to you.  You can send in your reflections, thoughts, words of encouragement, prophetic words to office@kchw.co.uk.
