Wednesday 6:30 AM Prayer Focus: Salvation

August 24, 2011 12:55 AM by Peter

Acts 13:47-48



47 For this is what the Lord has commanded us:

   “‘I have made you[a] a light for the Gentiles, 
   that you[b] may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’[c]

 48 When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed.


Father, just as You sent Paul and Barnabus to preach the Good News to the Gentiles in their day, have You not sent us to declare Your salvation in Oregon, at the "end of the earth" from Israel? Enable Your servants today in our valley to be bold like these pioneers were. Grant the anointing of Your Spirit upon the Church in our community to reach out with faith in You that thousands of souls will be saved in our valley. Please send a might awakening here and glorify Your name!

Tuesday AM Prayer Focus: Open Door

August 22, 2011 11:10 PM by Karen

Rev 3:8 "I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know you have little strength, yet you have kept my Word and have not denied my name.


God, you have opened doors for us. Help us even in our weakness to go forth, to walk through the doors that you have opened. Help us to accomplish all that you want us to do and in doing so bring glory and honor to Jesus.

Monday AM Prayer Focus: Teach Us To Pray

August 21, 2011 10:21 PM by Karen

Who can say what power a church could develop and exercise, if it gave itself to the work of prayer day and night for the coming of the kingdom, for God's power on His servants and His Word, for the glorifying of God in the salvation of souls? Most churches think their members are gathered into one, simply to take care of and build up each other. They know not that God rules the world by the prayers of His saints; that prayer is the power by which Satan is conquered; that by prayer the church on earth has disposal of the powers of the heavenly world. They do not remember that Jesus has, by His promise, consecrated every assembly in His name to be a gate of heaven, where His presence is to be felt, and His power experienced in the Father fulfilling their desires. -Andrew Murray, With Christ In The School of Prayer, Lesson 15


Lord, teach us to pray.

Sunday AM Prayer Focus: Tithe and Giving

August 21, 2011 9:11 AM by DanJ

Honor the LORD with your wealth, 
   with the firstfruits of all your crops; 
then your barns will be filled to overflowing, 
   and your vats will brim over with new wine.  Proverbs 3:9-10


Lord we pray that we Your church would be willing to give, willing to be generous, willing to honor You with our wealth through giving to our church, to our families and to our nations.  You ask us to have an open hand and to let our finances and wealth flow from us to You so that You can bless us with more.  Help us to learn how to do that.  Show us the great need around us to give from the supply You have given us. Bless our efforts Lord.

Friday AM Prayer Focus: Looking Too Close

August 18, 2011 10:26 PM by DanJ

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:27


In our lives it is so common to worry about some up coming issue, some major concern.  We get myopic, focusing on that one issue as if it were all encompassing while there is a whole world waiting for our love, our help and our commitment.  Help us Lord not to focus on particular issues coming at us, as You shared in Your teaching... 


Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Matthew 6:34


Help us dear Lord to look for You... Your wonder, Your peace, Your all encompassing joy in all things. All things work together towards You for us who love You Lord. Help we Your people, we Your church realize that and take great contentment in it.

Friday 8:30 AM Prayer for Israel - Abraham had two sons

August 18, 2011 10:00 PM by Roger

Galatians 4:21-31.   "...  Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabian, and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children.  But the Jerusalem above is free, she is our mother."  v. 25f.

"... but as at that time, he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so it is now also..."  v.29

See also, Rev.21


Father, we pray for the Church in Israel to endure patiently her hardships by Your grace.  We pray for those in harms way to find shelter and real help.  We pray for those tempted by bitterness to stand strong in You against a spirit of unforgiveness.   We ask that the Church in Israel be effective and fruitful in ministry, especially in evangelism.   We bless our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Make them a blessing to the communities they are in.

Wednesday 6:30 AM Prayer Focus: Harvesters

August 17, 2011 7:56 AM by Peter

Matt. 9:37-38 

37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”


Father, thank You that You are preparing souls to be ready to know You. We ask that You would call forth the harvesters, that You would show us the harvest, that You would strengthen us and protect us from the evil one according to 2 Thes. 3:3. Make us effective workers, knowing You and doing exploits in Your name.

Ps 4:3 "But You , O LOrd, are a shield for me.  My glory and the One who lifts up my head."

Father just as the Psalmist David knew you as his protector and encourager we pray for Mike Silva and all who labor with him to know you the same.  Today we ask for deeper revelation of your presence to shield and guide to be upon this team.  Bless them with yourself Lord and may they be satisfied and at rest.

Tuesday AM Prayer Focus - Ask for Nations

August 16, 2011 7:41 AM by Gene

Psalm 2:8  (NKJV)

     Ask of Me, and I will give You
         The nations for Your inheritance, 
         And the ends of the earth for Your possession.


Lord, thank You for many people who You have raised up to go out locally and internationally to proclaim the Good News. We ask You for more people to be brought into your kingdom all over the earth. Pour out Your Spirit over Albany as half a dozen churches come together from around the state to train and send out hundreds of workers on 8/27/11 to proclaim the Gospel here.
