We encourage you to spend the first 30 minutes of your day in prayer. Read the Scripture. Seek the Lord; get your heart calm and confident in Him and in His love for you. Submit yourself to Him.
Join us for 20 minutes of Corporate prayer, Monday-Thursday at 12 pm via live stream on Facebook.com/hendersonhills, YouTube (search HHBCOK), HHBC.com/stream. We will worship and pray together, seek the Lord’s presence and power to help us in this time of need, and ask God to renew His church to be His light to the world, beginning in our own neighborhoods.
Closeout the day in prayer for 10 minutes with your household. Consider reading a passage of Scripture and praying with your family. Let this be a time to draw close to God and to each other in order to lean on Him and not our own understanding.

Monday, June 1
Prayer Point: This coming Sunday marks a turning point in HHBC’s response to the Coronavirus Pandemic as we joyfully gather again for corporate worship. Although we realize many are not yet comfortable returning to our building (and we completely support their decisions), we also know others are looking forward to it. Our staff and elders have been working hard to plan services which honor God and safely bless those who attend. Today we’re asking you to pray for our staff as they prepare. Please pray for John, Joe, and our Worship Team as they will have to prepare for, and engage in, three morning services. Lift up our Media Team as they will have to support three in-person services and also livestream all of them. Pray for other staff members who will be on campus to encourage and serve our members throughout the morning. And finally, lift up those on our staff who are high risk for Covid-19 and must worship from home despite their desire to attend.
Scripture Reference: Ephesians 4:11-12
Tuesday, June 2
Prayer Point: Paul’s home church was the Church at Antioch (Acts 13:1-3), yet most of his recorded prayers were for other churches. The Church at Colossae was founded, not by Paul, but by Epaphras (Col 1:5-7). But Paul had heard of their faith and love and prayed for them often. So too we should pray for other faithful churches who have begun gathering for worship or will soon. Let’s do that specifically today. Pray also for their staff and members that they will be protected as they gather together.
Scripture Reference: “Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae: grace to you and peace from God our Father. We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints.” (Colossians 1:1-4)
Wednesday, June 3
Prayer Point: As we continue to pray for preparations for our church’s worship gathering this Sunday, we should not forget those in our church who, although they desire to attend, are unable to because they are high risk for Covid-19. This is absolutely the correct decision for them, and we respect and support them for it. Please pray for their continued protection and blessing as they worship with us from home. There are also members of our church who continue to be on the front lines of this pandemic battle. Doctors, nurses, and first responders have been putting themselves in great danger daily since mid-March, and some will do so again even as we worship Sunday. Let’s thank God for them and pray for their continued protection. Finally, please pray for those in our church who have become ill, unemployed, or have other great needs right now. May we minister to them well.
Scripture Reference: Acts 2:44-47
Thursday, June 4
Prayer Point: Finally, this week we want to pray for the services which will take place this coming Sunday. We want to pray for wisdom for all as they decide whether or not to attend. We want to pray that the technology which will allow us to worship in person and livestream the services will work well. And most importantly, we want to pray that our worship will be genuine. That all who worship with us, whether in person or at home, will be blessed and will worship in spirit and truth. And that we will all experience something of the awe and wonder of our amazing God, and be a sweet aroma to Him, as it was during the early days of the church.
Scripture Reference: “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles.” (Acts 2:42-43
