The Disciplemaker’s Prayer


As we think about living outward, making disciples wherever we go, I had mentioned a prayer that has been very helpful in helping to foster disciplemaking attentiveness and intentionality.  Here it is, I would encourage you to pray this every morning, as you start your day for the rest of the year and see how God shapes your heart!

Disciplemaker’s Prayer

Deut. 6:1-9, Mark3:13-14; 12:30-31 Matt. 28:18-20, John 17:20,. Acts 1:8, 1 Cor. 4:16-17

Heavenly Father, 

Thank you for giving me a disciplemaking way of life in Christ Jesus. As I go through every part of this day, help me to love you and love the people who cross my path-starting with my family. Don’t let me miss the adventures you are sending my way to live and speak the Good News about Jesus today. Draw my heart to you and to specific people you want me to pull close for Jesus-like disciplemaking friendships. By your Word and Spirit, transform me into a follower of Jesus who loves you, loves people, and makes disciples-who make more disciples, ad infinitum. 

-In Jesus’ name, amen.
