The Music and Worship team has chosen to emphasize prayer in 2020 to encourage a closer relationship with God among all who worship with us. Starting in February, SOTH has offered sermon series, prayer vigils, retreats, and other opportunities to learn more about prayer. Our overview of the year is here.
We explore the A.C.T.S. prayer model, emphasizing four types of prayer: Adoration is about who God is. Confession is about who we are. Thanksgiving is about what God does. Supplication is about what we ask God to do for us and those we love. Each week we will explore one of these types of prayer.
Supplication Prayer Vigil, December 2020
You are invited to participate in the December Prayer Vigil with Shepherd of the Hills as we continue to follow the ACTS model of Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication. In our fourth prayer vigil of this Year of Prayer, we will take a little time to speak with God about concerns we have for our families, our community, and the world. Prayers of Supplication address what God does for us. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7 assures us that God welcomes our requests. Please join others in setting apart some time today, or the next couple of days, for focused and intentional prayer.
The Supplication Prayer Vigil guide is attached HERE. We encourage you to share this with family and friends.
Prayer is central to our lives as Christians. Paul encourages us to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17), hoping that prayer will be a habit of the heart and that our relationship with God will strengthen because of it. We pray individually, but we have a collective purpose – to bring our cares to God. What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
