Friday Prayer: Pray for the Weary

October 29, 2015 11:14 PM by Dan

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  Matt. 11:28-29

 

Lord, today we pray for those who do not know you, who haven't sought you and come to you for rest. There are many in our town and region who simply have never read the Bible or attended a church or had someone share the truth with them. They are lonely, tired, weak and wondering what this life is about. Lord help your church to respond to the call to witness and to share the truth with many. Help us to share with this world hope and vision and rest in You.

Friday Prayer: What are You Doing Here?

October 22, 2015 10:20 PM by Dan

The angel of the Lord came back a second time and touched him and said, “Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you.”  So he got up and ate and drank. Strengthened by that food, he traveled forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God. There he went into a cave and spent the night.  And the word of the Lord came to him: “What are you doing here, Elijah?”  1 Kings 19:7-10

So many have retreated like Elijah Lord.  They are hiding in the caves of their dens and shops and garages. Once valiant Christians, now they are isolated from you, hardly ever looking at Your Word or praying. Awaken them Lord. Ask them the question, what are they doing there. Get them out of their caves and into the sunlight hearing Your voice by reading Your word and believing in You and praying to You. Today we pray for Christians to return to You, to be restored, strengthened and ready for the battles ahead. Awaken the church in Albany and the surrounding areas dear Lord, we ring the bells of prayer to awaken them this day.

Friday Prayer: Not Alone

October 15, 2015 10:28 PM by Dan

The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him.”  John 8:29

 

Your words Lord are an encouragement to us in that we know because of our relationship with You that we also are never alone.  We thank You for being willing to be with us in the good and bad, happy and sad.  Thank you that you are wanting to share truth and understanding for those of us that have ears to hear, eyes to see and a heart to accept it. Thank you for being here in Your Holy Spirit.

Friday Prayer: Heart Filled with Worship

October 1, 2015 10:57 PM by Dan

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Ephesians 5:15-20

Lord, how can we keep from singing. You are the most important understanding of our lives. You have given your life for us and through redemption in that sacrifice we have peace and hope in this world. Help us to follow your instruction. Help us to hear your voice today. We pray for the church in Albany to sing out for You in their lives.
