Spiritual Growth: Pray
A Prayer to Find the Right Church
If you’ve recently moved or are looking for a new church home for any other reason, you may be finding the process more daunting than you imagined.
Connecting with a local church and developing godly relationships with other believers is a major key to spiritual growth and success (Hebrews 10:23-25; Ephesians 4:15-16). And choosing which church to do that with is a big decision!
If you’re in the middle of your search, Brother Copeland offers this guidance: “This is the time to pray and say, ‘LORD, where is my church home? Where is my church family? Am I in the right city?’ You find out where your church home is, and I’ll guarantee you, your financial success will be there. That’s where your job is going to be, that’s where your business is going to be. Life is in that place. Put God first.”
To help you in your journey, we've put together this helpful checklist, and below is a prayer to find the right church you can pray in faith.
Father, in the Name of Jesus, I praise You and thank You that You have blessed us with a family that is the Body of Christ. I am honored to be a part of the family of God, and I desire to become planted firmly in a house of faith and gather with other believers according to Your Word.
And now I ask in Your Name, by faith, that You would guide me to the church You have ordained for me. Impress upon my spirit the place You would have me to attend and serve.
Father, I know that no church or pastor is perfect, so help me to be humble in my search, while not compromising on the fundamentals of salvation, water baptism, baptism in the Holy Spirit, prosperity and healing. Let me be led by Your Spirit and not my flesh. You have said that my steps are ordered of You, and I receive that over my search for a church.
I pray that You would also show me how I might be a blessing to those in my new church home and that I would serve with a right heart and spirit.
Thank You, God, for my new church home!
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Ephesians 2:8-10; Matthew 28:19; Acts 1:5, 19:2-6; 3 John 2; Acts 1:10-11; 1 Corinthians 15:51-58; Mark 16:15-20; Revelation 20:10-15; Hebrews 6:1-2
