In Philippians 4:6, Paul says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Church planting offers plenty of opportunities to be anxious and move our focus off of Jesus. Prayer is essential when stepping out in faith, not only because it keeps our soul rooted in Christ but also because of how a strong prayer life impacts how we lead others.
This 10-day devotional guide, crafted by ARC church planters, is your companion in this pivotal season. Each devotional is a heartfelt reflection from someone who has walked your path, understanding the unique challenges and joys of starting a new church. We emphasize the power of prayer as your cornerstone, encouraging you to lean into these moments of communion with God. Let this guide be a source of inspiration and strength, reminding you that you’re not alone in this adventure. Together, let’s embrace this season with hope and prayerful anticipation.
