As we’re in the process of planting Commonwealth, we are realizing more than ever how important it is to have this whole journey covered in prayer. One of our favorite books on prayer is called Circle Maker by Mark Batterson, and it has really taught us the significance and importance of praying specific and persistent prayers, and then watching in faith as God moves miraculously.
So, here’s some specific ways you can join with us in praying for Commonwealth at this time:
Pray for a venue that we can rent to host our weekly Sunday services starting in January. We’re looking for a place in/near downtown San Diego with a big enough room to gather, space for kids & parking. We’re also looking for some kind of storage/office space where we can begin to gather all of the supplies needed for launching in Jan!
Pray for the launch team - that God would bless and encourage those who have already stepped out to be a part of this amazing journey, and that God would continue to add to our team.
Pray for financial provision. We believe that God has called us to do join him in doing some great things in San Diego. Our vision is bigger than what we can do in our own strength, so we are believing for God-sized resources to enable the work we feel called to. Pray for finances to cover our launch budget and to continue to minister to San Diego in a sustainable way.
Pray for our meet ups. Meet ups are one way that we are stepping out to meet new people and to invite others to join the journey of Commonwealth. Pray that God would draw people to these gatherings who have a heart to see God move in their lives and in this city.
Pray for new connections. We believe that life is built upon relationships. Pray that we will continue to meet people, and develop relationships with:
- Those who don’t yet know Jesus, that we might be able to be a source of friendship & hope to them, and that we might lead them toward encountering Jesus.
- Parters who are already working to bring life to San Diego. Pray that we get connected with other churches, non-profits, and businesses that we can join with to see “lives and cities changed for good."
- People who are looking for a church home. We believe that being connected to a local church is part of God’s good design for all of us, but we know that there are many people, even Christians, in SD who are not yet connected to a local church. Pray that we have the chance to connect with them.
Thanks for praying with us! We can't wait to see what God will do through your prayers.
