Day Two: Longing for His People to Grow

Scripture to Pray Through: Psalm 1

1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.

4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

From the Proposed Covenant

Fifth, we promise to guard the unity that the Spirit has given us in Christ, bearing one another’s burdens, bearing with one another’s weaknesses with much tenderness, and fellowshipping with one another in all conditions both outward and inward as God wills.

Prayers of Intercession

Pray specifically for fellow members of our church. Start with the three people you committed to invest time in back in September (someone older, someone younger, and a peer). For each one:

  • Give thanks to God for evidences of grace you see in their lives.
  • Pray the blessings of Psalm 1 over them, asking God to watch over their way and to preserve them from temptation.
  • Text or call them to find out specific ways you can pray for them.
  • Consider how the Lord might use you to serve them in the coming days.

    Use the space below to jot down notes from your conversation with them, as well as ideas the Lord gives you as you pray.
