At Seven Mile Road, we freely confess that we are 100% dependent on the grace and power of the Spirit for anything good to come of our work, so we seek to surround it all in fervent prayer. Join us in this pursuit.
Jesus has sent us to the most ungospeled area of our country. Pray that the Spirit would sweep through our cities with dissatisfaction with the status quo, conviction of sin, opportunities for hospitality and conversation with our neighbors, and gospel wakefulness.
#2 GOSPEL COMMUNITIES
We have 6 gospel communities with almost 70 Seven Milers giving themselves to Word, prayer, gospel conversation, and shared life. Pray that our commitment to gospel + safety + time bears big gospel fruit.
#3 MINISTRY OF THE WORD
We are preaching hard again this year, specifically on the glories of Christ from Hebrews and on familiar objections to the Christian gospel on Skeptic Sundays. Pray for our preachers (for grace, accuracy, clarity, force) and hearers (humility, illumination, repentance, faith).
#4 STUDENT MINISTRY
We are loving and gospeling students both through gospel formation on Sunday mornings and at big events. Pray for our leaders (unity, wisdom) and our students (connections, hunger for God, friendships, gospel wakefulness).
#5 CHILDREN’S MINISTRY
We have over 50 kids being discipled on Sunday mornings. Pray for our teachers (grace, patience, wisdom) and our children (joy, attentiveness, understanding).
We’ve gotten to meet and love over 100 different moms or caregivers from the Melrose area by opening our space on Tuesday mornings. Pray that the Seven Milers who are hosting this would love and connect well.
Our bands teach us how to sing in response to the glories of God and His grace in the gospel. Pray for our worship leaders and musicians (unity, integrity, inspiration, humility).
We have 1 pastoral (Elder Team) and 2 diaconal (Serve and Kalos Teams) leadership teams serving the church this year. Pray for their souls and their work (holiness, energy, wisdom, unity, effectiveness).
We have 11 men and women being loved and trained for gospel ministry at Seven Mile Road and beyond. Pray for our track leaders and participants as they work through gospel formation, theological vision, and disciple-making practicals.
#10 SEVEN MILE ROAD FAMILY
We have 6 church plants (Philly, Wakefield, Houston, Malden, Waltham, Kennebunk) and 2 overseas works (Africa) underway. Pray for those missions (holiness, unity, fruitfulness, guidance).
Pray that the Father would supply all our many resource needs (finances, space, future leaders, favor in the community) as He see fit.
