Fleets of United Prayer

As many mercies are transported from heaven in the ship of prayer, so there are many special mercies that can only be brought to us by the fleets of united prayer.
Charles H. Spurgeon - 1885

Here are some great Bible passages you can pray for Mountaintop (and every church) - and  it makes a difference when we pray together as a fleet of united prayer.

Pray that we will preach the Word of God without apology.
Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.
2 Timothy 4:2

Pray that we would devote ourselves to prayer.
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
Colossians 4:2

Pray that we will boldly share Jesus as the only hope for salvation.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other Name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.
Acts 4:12

Pray that we will worship God in spirit and in truth.
God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.
John 4:24

Pray that our leaders will serve humbly as godly examples to all.
Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.
1 Peter 5:2-3

 Pray that we will labor and strive to present everyone mature in Christ.
He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.
Colossians 1:28-29

 Pray that more workers step up to faithfully serve on and off the mountain.
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”
Matthew 9:37-38

 Pray that our leaders equip the saints for the work of ministry.
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.
Ephesians 4:11-12

Pray that we never lose our first love.
Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.
Revelation 2:4-5

Pray that we will trust Jesus to grow Mountaintop to His glory.
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
Matthew 16:18

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
Acts 2: 42 - 47
