Friday AM Prayer Focus - Devotion to Prayer

Januar 31, 2013 10:55 by DanJ

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.  Collosians 2:4

Thank you Lord for inspiring the instruction of your servant Paul to the church of Collosi.  We are needy of that instruction too.  Please help us to stay devoted to prayer.  Help us to ask for Your will to be done here on the earth.  You have instructed us to ask and to be thankful for Your generous blessings to us.  We are so appreciative that we can go to You God, without fear, only knowing that You desire to hear us ask You.  Teach us to pray Lord.  Teach us to pray.

Monday AM Prayer Focus: Be Merciful

Januar 27, 2013 10:53 by Diane

But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. Luke 6:35-36.

Dear God, Help us to live out these scriptures. You ask us to be merciful not only to those we love but also to those who do not like us, hurt us, and wish us harm. These are challenging words and yet You set the example and are merciful to us even when we are unkind. Help us to be a living example of Your words in action. We want to be Your children. Amen.

Friday AM Prayer Focus - God's Mercy

Januar 25, 2013 12:30 by DanJ

I will declare your name to my people;
    in the assembly I will praise you.
23 You who fear the Lord, praise him!
    All you descendants of Jacob, honor him!
    Revere him, all you descendants of Israel!
24 For he has not despised or scorned
    the suffering of the afflicted one;
he has not hidden his face from him
    but has listened to his cry for help.  Psalm 22:22-24


Thank You Lord that You hear our cry for help, our cry for freedom, our cry for needs.  You do not hide Your face from us here in Albany.  You hear our prayers, cherish them, as You love us.  Please inspire Your saints throughout the valley to come together to pray, to intercede on behalf of our city, state and nation.  We know from Your word that You desire that of us.  Help us to cry out so we can see Your mighty hand of love and mercy here in our land, the place that your've brought us to live.  We thank you God.

Tuesday AM - We Love Him

Januar 15, 2013 12:03 by Diane

Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. I Corinthians 2:9.

Dear God, we do love You. We look forward to all those things that You have prepared but are too wonderful for us to even imagine. Help us to not miss opportunities to share Your love, salvation, and Lordship with others so they too can look forward to all the good things You have for us. Amen.

"Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6. 

Dear Lord, Thank you that You go with us and will not leave us or forsake us when we commit our lives to You. Because of who You are, we can be strong and couragous. Help us to remember that nothing is impossible for You. Amen.

Monday AM Prayer Focus: The Eyes of the Lord

Januar 6, 2013 9:41 by Diane

"For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do eveil." And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed, "And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled." I Peter 3:12-14.

Dear Lord, Let our hearts and minds always be open and seeking to do those good things that you put before us for You are our reward and salvation. Keep our focus on You so that we cannot be touched by the threats and worries of the world. Amen.
