Friday Prayer: Our Temple

June 25, 2015 10:32 PM by Dan

When Solomon had finished building the temple of the Lord and the royal palace, and had achieved all he had desired to do, the Lord appeared to him a second time, as he had appeared to him at Gibeon. The Lord said to him:“I have heard the prayer and plea you have made before me; I have consecrated this temple, which you have built, by putting my Name there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there."  Solomon 9:1-3

Solomon is a good reminder to us of your steadfast love.  How you heard His prayers.  So also You hear our prayers!  You asked His Father David to have Him to build a temple. In our lives You tell us we are that temple.  You want fellowship with us just like with Solomon. Help us dear Lord to be stronger than Solomon.  Not to turn away from You or ever fail to give praise, worship and prayer to You.  Help us to seek You each and every day of our lives.  Never forgetting to honor You.  Never forgetting the gift You've given us in this life, and the most important gift, the understanding of the scripture and who Jesus is.  Bless the church in Albany in understanding who Chirst is and what our lives should be about.

Friday Prayer: The Spirit's Power

June 18, 2015 11:03 PM by Dan

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

 

Lord, we often lose sight of the power that is available to us via the Holy Spirit. Give us a mind to keep our thoughts on You and the power that You bring into our lives. You are mighty beyond our most complete understanding of might. When we look at the sheer power of the universe, You are greater than that. Why do we depend on our own abilities? Why do we fail to rely on You?  Today, give us a stronger belief than yesterday, and tomorrow, give us a stronger belief than today.  Help us to use Your Spirit's power to awaken us, awaken the church around us and give understanding to unbelievers throughout the Willamette Valley and Oregon. Give Your power to Your church here in Albany.

Friday Prayer: The Spirit's Voice

June 4, 2015 10:22 PM by Dan

 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.  But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.  He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.  All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.” John 16:12-15

 

We pray to hear the Spirit's voice this morning. We pray for truth and understanding. Help us to receive from you dear God, a word, an encouragement, a direction to go.  Reveal to us where we fit in Your plan.  We pray for the church of Albany to embrace You and Your voice dear Holy Spirit.  Speak to Your church here in Albany.
