Friday Prayer: Purify

August 27, 2015 10:27 by Dan

Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God. 2 Corinthians 7:1

 

Purify our hearts Lord. Cleanse us and make us new and ready for Your work to be done through us. Forgive us our sins.  Forgive us our failures. Help us to go beyond them to good works.  Give us understanding of what is the best work for us to do for You. Bless our efforts as we work in the direction of good. Give the saints in Albany, OR fresh insight of the things You want them to do.

Friday Prayer: Forgive Your People

August 20, 2015 10:25 by Dan

 “When they sin against you—for there is no one who does not sin—and you become angry with them and give them over to the enemy, who takes them captive to a land far away or near; and if they have a change of heart in the land where they are held captive, and repent and plead with you in the land of their captivity and say, ‘We have sinned, we have done wrong and acted wickedly’; and if they turn back to you with all their heart and soul in the land of their captivity where they were taken, and pray toward the land you gave their ancestors, toward the city you have chosen and toward the temple I have built for your Name; then from heaven, your dwelling place, hear their prayer and their pleas, and uphold their cause. And forgive your people, who have sinned against you. 2 Chronicles 36-39

 

Thank you for hearing Solomon's prayer Lord.  Because of the group's repentant heart You immediate poured your glory on Your people and on the temple Solomon had built.  I ask you Lord to pour out your glory on Your people today, even more so since we are the temple that You inhabit.  Give us wisdom to hear, see and do what you are commanding.  Help us to get past ourselves and our own selfish desires. Give us vision to see how You want the church in this area to move, live and have it's shape. Let us be used by you dear Lord... pour into us the ability to be useful.

Friday Prayer: Revealed by the Spirit

August 13, 2015 10:42 by Dan

However, as it is written:

“What no eye has seen,
    what no ear has heard, 

    and what no human mind has conceived”
    the things God has prepared for those who love him—

these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.  1 Cor. 2:9-10

 

We love you Father. Help us to look to Your Holy Spirit here in this life.  Give us a heart to pray and then to listen through revelation in our lives.  Give us this perception through prayer to experience things that we have not previously understood.  Much like Saul becoming Paul as the scales fell off of his eyes, help us to see Your truth for the first time. Let the church of Albany be led by Your Holy Spirit.
