Our Prayer Team prays over each request for 30 days. We invite you to share your prayer requests here. It would be a privilege for us to stand with you as you believe God for answers to the petitions of your heart. Just let us know how we can help.
Has God answered prayer? Then we also invite you to submit a praise report that tells what God has done for you, to the glory of God and for the encouragement of the body of Christ!
Colossians: An Interactive Prayer Walk
On Tuesday June 23 and Thursday June 25 from 4 pm- 7 pm, we will be opening our building for an interative prayer walk.
(We are reserving 4 pm -5 pm on both evenings for our more vulnerable population)
Through 5 stations, we hope this guided prayer time will give you an opportunity to meet with the Lord in a special way. Creating a space to process and pray our tears and fears in a semi-corporate way felt important. The invitation is to approach his throne of grace through the encouragement of these scriptures, and through the tactile experiences the stations afford. Quarantine and distancing have highlighted our longings to be near, to feel,to touch. May these walls, rich with the history of prayer and worship and the breaking of bread,witness our modified together-ness and be glad. As you begin, honor those around you as best you can. Please go in order, following the arrows on the floor, but feel free to go at your own pace if no one is behind/ahead of you. We have allotted about 5 minutes per station, or about 30 minutes total, but there’s no need to watch your clock. Please observe social distancing and defer to the comfort of others as much as possible. The Fireside Room is availablefor extended prayer time as well.
Dallas Bible Church is still in a phased opening, so we request that face coverings are used and social distancing practices are followed
Our focus is on what God wants to do through YOU. An extended time in prayer also gives increased opportunity to think of the world from God’s point of view, especially when going through some difficulty or making big decisions. We need God’s perspective to sharpen our vision of the unseen, and to let the immediate, tangible things drop into proper place.
Planning for your time
- Read Thoughts on Approaching God below. Then wait a few moments on the Lord with an open heart to realize His presence.
- Write down any individuals, families, your circle of influence (anyone you’re connected to) that God immediately brought to your heart. Pray over this list, asking God if there is something He wants you to do for those you wrote down.
- Pray through the guided prayers areas. Go slowly. Ask specific things for these areas and individuals.
Thoughts on Approaching God in Prayer
- When you come before God, ask Him to quiet your heart and give you peace.
- John 14:27—"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
- Ask God to examine your heart for any unknown sin and confess it before him.
- Psalm 66:18—If I regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to direct your prayers. Prayer is just as much listening as it is talking.
- Romans 8:26—And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. (NLT)
- When you pray be specific and believe that God will answer.
- Hebrews 11:6—And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
- 1 John 5:14-1 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
- End your prayer time with thanksgiving for His faithfulness and for hearing our hearts cry.
- Psalm 6:9—The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord will answer my prayer.
- Psalm 116:1—I love the LORD, because He hears My voice and my supplications.
