Friday Prayer: Call on Jesus First

November 26, 2015 10:41 by Dan

Are you hurting? Pray. Do you feel great? Sing. Are you sick? Call the church leaders together to pray and anoint you with oil in the name of the Master. Believing-prayer will heal you, and Jesus will put you on your feet. And if you’ve sinned, you’ll be forgiven—healed inside and out.  James 5:13-15

Lord we pray for wisdom to take wise action. Help us understand that you should always be our first resort. Let us look to You when we are hurting or joyful or sick or have sinned. Give us understanding that You are our best friend, our finest resource and our most immediate remedy. Help us to look to you immediately in crisis.  We pray for the saint in the Willamette Valley to call on your first.

Friday Prayer: God Himself is Fire

November 19, 2015 9:37 by Dan

Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. He’s actively cleaning house, torching all that needs to burn, and he won’t quit until it’s all cleansed. God himself is Fire! Heb.12:28-29 (The Message)

 

Thank you for what you are doing for us dear Lord. Your love Lord is amazing. Our lives have been given meaning and purpose and understanding through you and your word. We are living within Your presence and your creation. We welcome You into our hearts and into our minds. We desire to live for You and work for You. Give Your church wisdom and understanding of what we are involved in.  Let us be a thankful church.

Friday Prayer: Close the Door and Pray

November 12, 2015 11:29 by Dan

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Matt. 6:6

 

Lord we often want to be seen by others in our pursuit of You. But Your lesson in this scripture is to nearly hide when we pray. Help us to be working in prayer in the way that you have taught. Let us rejoice in our private times with You. Let us take joy in the secret place that You meet us in.

Friday Prayer: Encourage

November 6, 2015 5:47 by Dan

But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.  He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.  Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.  1 Thessalonians 5:8-11

 

This morning this concept is on my heart dear Lord. We need to encourage one another, strengthen each other through the kindness and love You have shown us. Please Dear Jesus, give Your church, Your people in Albany and the surrounding areas, the understanding of how to care and pray and inspire and strengthen one another. Help us to learn words of edification. Teach us to be a force for good strength through our prayers to You over others.
