"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    Praying for a People Group

    1. Give thanks to the Lord that “a people for His Name” will be established from among every people. (Rev. 7:9-10)

    2. Ask the Lord to to demolish spiritual strongholds and human philosophies or arguments raised up against the knowledge of God which produce barriers of resistance to the gospel. (II Cor. 10:4-5)

    3. Pray that willing, skillful workers would be sent to reach this people group. (Matt. 9:38)

    4. Believe God to enlighten the minds of the people about their worship of false gods. (Psalm 115:4-8)

    5. Plead for the opening of eyes to the revelation of the Creator God and His Son, Jesus Christ. (Eph. 1:17-18)

    6. Ask God to give understanding, sensitivity, a considerate disposition and discernment to those who communicate truth that it may be clearly understood. (I Peter 1:18-19)

    7. Intercede for people to come to faith in Christ, repenting from their sin and from their own good works. (Eph. 2:8-9). Only God can grant faith (John 6:63) and repentance (2 Tim 2:25). Since God requires faith in His Son that the lost may be saved, ask the Lord to send His Holy Spirit to give unto all those that are ordained unto eternal life a willing heart, and that He would open their blind eyes they may see the beauty and excellency of Christ and thus believe the Word of the Gospel we bring.

    8. Ask that new believers will share the gospel as bold witnesses. (Acts 4:29-31)
