Whatcom County Prayer Guide

Sustainable - Strategic - United Prayer for Whatcom County


Praise and Worship – John 1:14 and 17:1-3 
“So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen His glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.” 
— “After saying all these things, Jesus looked up to heaven and said, ‘Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son so He can give glory back to You. For you have given Him authority over everyone. He gives eternal life to each one You have given him. And this is the way to have eternal life—to know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the One You sent to earth.’” 
  • I encourage you to read/pray all of Jesus’ prayer (John 17) 
  • Jesus’ focus was the Father’s Glory. The Father’s focus was to reveal the glory of His Son. As you pray today keep in mind your prayer focus is to glorify the Father. John 17:4 says, “I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.” As you pray for our county and the world you are doing the work God gave you to do – And HE is GLORIFIED! 
  • The Father is glorified when His people love each other and walk in unity.  As you pray through this prayer guide along with several other churches in Whatcom County you are participating in – and becoming the answer to Jesus’ prayer that we would “walk together in unity. “ 
Pray for your neighborhood – your Family, your Church, your City, your Schools. 
Pray for the unique setting your church has as a part of the body of Christ. Pray that your local part of the body of Christ will seek in every setting to be a reflection of HIS GLORY.
