STATION #1: COVID-19 RELIEF

STation1

READ THIS SCRIPTURE:

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The Lord Almighty is with us! Psalm 46

READ THIS PRAYER:

You are faithful, and you act on the behalf of those who love you, according to your purpose for them. We love you and need your relief. We pray for the first responders and for all of the individuals who continue to serve on the front lines to provide medical care, food supply, and other services that ensure our safety. Please keep them protected from harm and from sickness. We also pray for those who have been negatively impacted in this season. Comfort those who have lost loved ones, heal those who are sick, and give courage to those who are afraid. Heal our nation and heal the world. We pray that our government leaders will look to you for wisdom and guidance, and we pray for an economic recovery in our nation and around the world. We look now to you, and entrust our lives into your hands. Amen.

STATION #2: FUTURE GENERATIONS

STation2b

READ THIS SCRIPTURE:

After all the nation finished crossing the Jordan, Yahweh said to Joshua, “…Take for yourselves twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan where the priests’ feet stood firmly, and bring them over with you, and set them up in the place where you will camp tonight…”And those twelve stones that they took from the Jordan, Joshua set up in Gilgal. And he said to the Israelites, “When your children ask in the future, ‘What is the meaning of these stones?’ you will let your children know by saying, ‘Israel crossed this Jordan on dry ground…For Yahweh your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you, until you had crossed, just as Yahweh your God did to the Red Sea, which he dried up before us until we had crossed over, so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of Yahweh is strong, so that you may fear Yahweh your God forever.’” Joshua 4

READ THIS PRAYER:

 All-mighty God, we thank you for the relief we have seen. While there is much recovery to still occur, we are grateful for where you have brought us today. Like the Israelites, we memorialize your faithfulness and strength. Let these stones remind our faith community and future generations of your provision. When our children ask what is the meaning of these stones? Let us share that it is a reminder that you faithfully walk with us through the difficulties of life. Amen.

STATION #3: HAVE SOME FUN!

STation3

READ THIS:

Have some fun! Imagine a playground filled with the laughter of kids enjoying playful activities in a safe and accepting environment. ValleyPoint loves families and we want kids to love coming to church. Our play equipment doesn’t only have an internal focus. We want to create a recreational experience that encourages and allows families in our community to enjoy our property 7-days a week! Come and have a peaceful walk through our pathways, enjoy the weather with your entire family, and have fun!

READ THIS PRAYER:

Our heavenly Father, we are your kids and you want us to have fun in life. Allow ValleyPoint to be a joyous presence in our community, where we play! We want everyone to feel loved and accepted, as you have loved and accepted us. Allow our plans, even our playground, to bring encouragement and love to our community. Amen.

STATION #4: FUTURE EXPANSION

STation4

READ THIS:

This prayer comes from Scripture and is referred to as “The Prayer of Jabez”, found in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10. Not much is known about Jabez. However, we know he was an honorable man who prayed in a way that pleased God. Here is what we find… There was a man named Jabez who was more honorable than any of his brothers. His mother named him Jabez because his birth had been so painful. He was the one who prayed to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!” And God granted him his request. 1 Chronicles 4:9-10

READ THIS PRAYER:

Holy and great God, we humbly request today that you would bless us. Give us spiritual blessings like good relationships, peace of mind, a compassionate heart, a confident hope, and a gentle demeanor. God blesses us spiritually, but also materially as we look to our future.

Enlarge our territory so that we can make a greater impact for the Kingdom of God. Enlarge the territory of our hearts that they may overflow to those around us. We want to reach others for the sake of God’s Kingdom.

Let your hand be with us! God, you are all-powerful, so we ask that your hand be with us – to guide us in wisdom onto the right path and to hold us throughout this journey.

Keep us from harm so that we will be free from pain. We ask you to free us from harm so that pain may not befall us. We need your strength, and we need your protection. Strengthen our relationship and our walk with your Son, Jesus. Amen.

STATION #5: KIDS AND STUDENTS

STation5

READ THIS SCRIPTURE:

One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could lay his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering him. But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” Matthew 19:13-16

READ THIS PRAYER:

Compassionate Christ, your heart is moved by the innocence of children. We pray that you would watch over and protect our youngest attenders. Allow their small and precious hearts to understand that you love them and are their salvation. As they develop and begin to reason, help them cognitively know you, and in their hearts, trust in you alone! Protect them from the enemy and may they feel safe in this place and in their homes.

For our students, we pray that they will continue to grow their understanding of you. Help them to search and find your truth in Scripture. We pray for their protection against the enemy’s attacks. Let them see themselves as you see them, not as the world sees them. Guard their hearts and minds from the pursuit of self-pleasures and sins. Help us to teach them how to make wise decisions.

We pray for marriages and families to remain strong! In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.

STATION #6: OUR WELCOME BACK

STation6

READ THIS SCRIPTURE:

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. James 1:2-6

READ THIS PRAYER:

All-knowing God, we are in troubling times. While it is sometimes hard to see the opportunity for joy, we submit to your will and trust you. As our faith is tested, help us to endure so that we can be examples of godly living to others. Continue to develop our spiritual endurance and faith.

We need wisdom, and we now ask that you would provide it to us. Help us to make wise decisions that honor you, respect local and national authorities, and keep people safe, as we develop plans to be welcomed back to our physical location. Every human life, made in your image, is sacred and priceless, so we want to protect every person who enters our building. Guide and bless our decisions and our efforts to honor you in all that we do. Protect us and protect those we love, amen.

STATION #7: LIFE VERSE 2020

STation7

READ THIS SCRIPTURE:

(VALLEYPOINT CHURCH LIFE VERSE 2020)
“You are the light of the world…No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.” Matthew 5:14-15

READ THIS PRAYER:

Christ Jesus, you are the Light of the World. You have shown brightness in the darkest corners of our hearts. Thank you for your love and forgiveness. We want to honor your sacrifice by being a bright light for you to those around us. Help ValleyPoint to be a place of love, a place of healing for the spiritually sick, and a place where grace conquers condemnation. Remove intolerance from our hearts and help us to have the courage to be advocates for those who need us and need to hear our voices. Let us speak up where injustice exists.

We want others to see you through us. Let us not put your light under a basket or be timid and afraid to talk about you or to share you with others. Bless our faith community and keep us on mission of pointing people to real relationships and real significance. Amen.
