Heavenly Father, thank you for the incredible year that has passed. Even though it may have been a challenging one for many of us, on reflection we can see how good you have been and just how much you have blessed us.
We pray for each and every member of Northside. That you would continue to build and develop each of them in order to fulfil the calling on their lives. Would the trials they each faced in 2016 be the fuel, learnings and building blocks for what you plan to do in 2017. We ask that you would help fulfil all the dreams and visions you have placed in the hearts of your people for this year. Teach us how to align them to your kingdom and give us the hope and perseverance to see them come to fulfilment.
God I ask that this year you would build the Mens Ministry for 2017. Unless the Lord builds the house, the workers labour in vain. Empower the men you have called to help lead this ministry so that it can be a beacon of light to all the men who are at and yet to join Northside.
In Jesus mighty name. Amen.
