Your Faith Journey 49

Your Faith Journey

Develop as a Disciple – To become a member of a United Methodist congregation, we professes faith in God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. We claim that our desire is to live our daily lives as disciples of Jesus Christ. Here, we covenant together with God and the members of Avon UMC to keep the vows of confirmation and membership into the Church. We vow to faithfully participate in the ministries of the church by our Prayers, Presence, Gifts, Service, and Witness. This week we are focusing on faithfully participating with our “Prayers.” You are encouraged to set aside daily time to read and study the Bible verses below as you pray.

Monday – Read Luke 11:1-4 and pray for our denomination, including our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world.

Tuesday – Read Philippians 4:4-7 and pray for the United Methodist leaders and congregations in Indiana.

Wednesday – Read 2 Timothy 3:10-17 and pray for the leaders of Avon UMC, our ministries, and those in need within our congregation.

Thursday – Read Matthew 7:24-27 and pray for our community, including the schools, emergency responders, businesses, other churches, local ministries, and residence.

Friday – Read Psalm 119:9-18 and pray for everyone who is disconnected from Christ.

Saturday – Share with God what is on your heart and mind as you pray. Invite the Lord to reveal a word, phrase, or verse that is his message to you for the day.
