Pray for the Vision

We are asking everyone to pray every day, at 12:00 noon, for God’s vision of Rodman Village and the Community of Hope Empowerment Center, as follows:

Father, in the name of Jesus, we come into your presence thanking you for the Rodman Street Missionary Baptist Church. You have called us to be lights in the city of Pittsburgh and around the world. As we lift our voices in one accord, we recognize that You are God and everything was made by and for You. We call into being those things that be not as though they were. We thank you that we all speak the same thing. There is no division among us. We are perfectly joined together in the same mind. Father, please grant unto us a boldness to speak Your Word, which You will follow with signs and wonders.

We thank you that we have spiritual workers in abundance. We thank you that every department operates in excellence and intercessions. We have in our church the ministry gifts for the edifying of this Body until we all come into the unity of the faith and knowledge of the Son of God unto a mature person.

We are a growing and witnessing Body of Believers becoming 20,000 strong. We have every need met. Therefore, we meet the needs of people who come—spirit, soul, and body. We ask for the wisdom of God in meeting these needs. Father, we thank you for the ministry facilities that will more than meet the needs of the ministry you have called us to. We touch and agree that the Old Sears building located at 3470 William Penn Hwy in Wilkins, Township is our new location to carry out the Community Hope Vision. We boldly declare that the building belongs to You and that You have led our Pastor to lead us in securing it. We boldly stand on your Word:

Luke 1:37 (AMP) 37 For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.

We pray that you will turn the heart of the owners towards us and that we will gain favor with God and man as Your Word declares concerning Jesus:

Luke 2:52 (AMP) 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom (in broad and full understanding) and in stature and years, and in favor with God and man.

Our church is prospering financially, and we have more than enough to meet every situation. We have everything to carry out Your Great Commission and reach the Pittsburgh area for Jesus. We are a people of love as your love is shed abroad in our hearts by Your Holy Spirit. We thank you that the Word of God is living big in all of us and Jesus is Lord.

We are a supernatural church, composed of supernatural people doing supernatural things, for we are laborers together with God. We thank you for Your presence among us. Father, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Amen and so be it.
