A Prayer for the Connexus Midland Launch
God, thank you for your faithfulness.
Thank you that your desire is for me to grow in my faith and relationship with you.
Whether that growth is easy, or is challenging, thank you that I can rely on you.
Thank you for your steadfast love for me and forgive me for the times I’ve taken it for granted.
As we celebrate 10 years of your faithfulness at Connexus, I want to thank you for the lives you have changed and the way so many people have grown in their relationship with you.
It’s all because of You.
As Connexus sets out to bring the hope of Jesus to new communities, I pray specifically for the Midland Launch coming January 14th.
I ask that the word of the Connexus launch would spread in Midland and the areas around Midland.
I pray for Jeremy, the Launch Pastor, during this launch season, and pray that you would bring the right leader to become the future Midland Campus Pastor.
I pray for the volunteers on the launch team as they work hard and prepare to open the doors.
Encourage them and give them the strength they need.
I lift up the musicians and the production crew in prayer as they work to create environments where people can invite their friends. May they see the spiritual fruit of their effort each and every week as they connect people with you.
I pray for the volunteers who will be working in the Waumba Land and Upstreet. I ask that they you would use them to introduce children and parents to Jesus.
I bring to you those who will be serving on the Guest Services and Next Steps teams and ask that you would give them the encouragement and energy it takes each week to help people feel welcome.
I ask that marriages would be restored, families would be brought together, and addictions would be met with your grace. May the launch of the Midland location result in decades of salvation, life-change, and a powerful move of God in that community.
I ask boldly for favour for our church in the Midland community. I know no one loves the people in that community more than you.
Thank you for what you are doing through Connexus in Barrie and Orillia, and I look forward to seeing you change lives in new communities into the future.
As I look at my own life, show me how I can be a part of seeing lives changed around me.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
