Friendly Avenue Church of Christ is praying and seeking God’s guidance in building a Family Life Center.  We are asking our Lord and Savior to bless this new building project to provide activities for our Church Family and the families in the community that will promote growth, development, relaxation and enjoyment.  We are depending on Him to provide all of the wisdom, finances, and resources that we will need to build a state-of-the-art facility.  We ask God to provide adequate funding, competent professionals, and skilled laborers for the construction.  Most of all we ask Him to stir up the faith in us so that we will walk by faith and not by sight and support this vision through our giving and prayers.

“Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.  Let the whole world know what he has done.”      Chronicles 16:8

“So I answered them, and said to them, “The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build…”     Nehemiah 2:20

A Prayer for the Family Life Center Building Campaign

Our Father, we thank You for Your faithful love for us that never ends and Your mercy which never ceases.  They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.  Lord, You are God.  You created the heavens and earth and put everything in place. You made the world to be lived in, not to be a place of empty chaos.  You are the Lord and there is no other.  You publicly proclaim bold promises; You do not whisper obscurities in dark corners.   We thank You for giving our leaders the vision to build.  We pray you will provide the resources for us to build.  Thank You, Father, for being a wall of fire and protection around our congregation, families and those involved in the construction of a new building.

In Jesus’ Name, we command that God’s Kingdom come and God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven for the construction of the Family Life Center.  We believe that You will make our thoughts agreeable to Your will, so that the plans for this project may be established and succeed.  Your Word, Father, declares that for lack of advice, plans go wrong; but with many advisers there is success.  Therefore, we confess that we will seek the counsel of the godly as we proceed with this project.  We declare that we will write the vision for this new project plainly so that those involved can run and carry the correct message to others.  Father, we expect You to call forth competent and skilled laborers for this project, just as You called forth the artisans for the building of the tabernacle.  We confess that they will be filled with the Spirit of wisdom, understanding and knowledge in all manner of workmanship.  We proclaim that all involved in this project will focus their attention and efforts so that they can successfully complete their assignments and bring glory and honor to Your Name. We decree that favor surrounds this project and we will have good success with local, county and state government agencies, the legal and banking communities and every entity associated in the completion of this project.   Father, we are confident that the new facility will be completed, because You have begun this good work.  Lord, we commit to praying diligently for this project.

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power and the glory, the victory and the majesty.  Everything in the heavens and on earth is Yours and this is Your Kingdom.  We adore You as the One who is over all things.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
