Prayer Focus
 

We focus prayers on the needs of our community both as a congregation and outside our walls. Each week we ask you to pray for the ministries and health of a church in our city and a church on our district, as well as a group of people who are likely to need the extra prayer support.

Wichita Area Church: College Hill United Methodist

Kansas District Church: Bethany Church of the Nazarene (Hutchinson)

Special focus: This week let us remember the lost, the doubting, the skeptics, those who have been wounded in churches, and those who are struggling in faith.

 
Weekly Practices

We encourage you to find ways to engage your faith beyond Sundays. The things we focus on and the actions we take help form our faith, values and lives. We sometimes post suggested practices on social media on Mondays, but we also encourage you to:​

  • How are we made right with God through the crucifixion and resurrection? Here are 7 theories of atonement. Read them here. Consider which one(s) make the most sense to you. Are any off the table for you? Link to article here.

  • 12 Ways To Practice Resurrection from Father Richard Rohr

​1. Refuse to identify with negative, blaming, antagonistic, or fearful thoughts (you cannot stop “having” them).
2. Apologize when you hurt another person or situation.
3. Undo your mistakes by some positive action toward the offended person or situation.
4. Do not indulge or believe your False Self – that which is concocted by your mind and society’s expectations.
5. Choose your True Self – your radical union with God – as often as possible throughout the day.
6. Always seek to change yourself before trying to change others.
7. Choose as much as possible to serve rather than be served.
8. Whenever possible, seek the common good over your mere private good.
9. Give preference to those in pain, excluded, or disabled in any way.
10. Seek just systems and policies over mere charity.
11. Make sure your medium is the same as you message.
12. Never doubt that it is all about love in the end.

  • Spend time in prayer (private, out loud, journaling, whatever) about what new thing(s) you'd like God to do in your faith, life, church, community? What might it look like for you to work toward these things? What new things have you experienced in the recent past?
