  • Pray that we would have a passion for Christ-likeness.
  • Pray that it would be obvious to all who know us that Jesus is Lord and head of this church, and that it is for Him that we exist. Pray that full devotion would be seen as normal for believers at Watermark.

  • Pray that we would desire to emulate the attributes of Christ and increasingly be conformed to His image.

GIFT #3 - PRAY THAT WE WOULD BE AWARE OF OUR NEED FOR, THE BENEFITS OF AND THE RIGHT RESPONSE TO GRACE.

  • Pray that we would acknowledge our complete dependence on the goodness of God in everything.
  • Pray that we would never forget how we ourselves have benefited from the kind intention of His will' (Ephesians 1:7) and that we would

  • Pray that God would cause us to weep at the thought of them living another day without Christ.
  • Pray that we would be a community of salt and light that God would choose to use to draw His sheep to Himself.
  • Pray that this would be a church that lost people grow to know and trust as a place where truth is taught with grace, where the wayward and struggling are
  • welcomed but also where many are regularly transformed into followers of Christ.
  • For the dead-churched and unmoved: Pray that they would be challenged by our sincerity of faith and passion for Christ.

  • Pray that we clothe ourselves in humility toward one another, live in subjection to one another, stimulate one another on to love and good deeds, confess sins to one another, live in peace with one another and give preference to one another in honor; and pray that we encourage one another day after day lest any of us become hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
