Prayer Focus: Being Christlike

jesus-small2Please be in prayer that we as brothers and sisters in Christ at First Presbyterian Church would submit to one another out of reverence for Christ (Ephesians 5:21). Pray that our marriages would display a Gospel-oriented submission and love that is Christlike (Ephesians 5:22-33). Pray that the relationships between parents and children would be godly and would give glory to Him (Ephesians 6:1-4). Pray that our dealings in the workplace with those in authority over us and those over whom we exercise authority would be Christ-centered in nature (Ephesians 6:5-9). In all of our relationships may we love as those who have been loved first by Christ Jesus. If there is a need for repentance may we see it and respond humbly. If there is hurt and pain may we look with hope to the One who can bring redemption and reconciliation.
