Friday Prayer: Forgiveness

June 30, 2016 10:10 PM by Dan

For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little.”  Luke 7:47

 
Thank you for your forgiveness. We sing and dance and take pure joy in the freedom You have given us. We are free from the chains of sin and shame. We are no longer fearful as we have given our lives into Your protection and Your peace.  Today we pray for those who are bound by unrepentant hearts. We pray for their freedom, their willingness to confess their sin to you and change their ways.

Friday Prayer: The Strength of My Heart

June 16, 2016 10:18 PM by Dan

Whom have I in heaven but You?
And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. For, behold, those who are far from You will perish; You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to You. But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, That I may tell of all Your works.

                                                                           Psalm 73:25-28

 

Lord, you love us through the hard times. You are there to care for all who call on You. For those who cry out. And in Your answer, You have developed a strength and an assurance and a confidence within us.  You have strengthened our hearts and we are so thankful. Help us to rely on You more and more, each and every day of our lives. Give us vision and understanding of Your working within us. You are our refuge, our shelter. Help us to break away from the things that confine us and let us walk in freedom with You.

Keep Asking

June 12, 2016 12:21 AM by Diane

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7: 7-8.

Dear God, You want us to come to You no matter what the situation may be. We can come to You 24/7. You are always available and never take a vacation. We can ask for help regarding a situation or a need. We are not to be independent or hesitant. If we are seeking wisdom or understanding You are an expert on everything. If a door seems closed and we cannot enter, You will make a way through. What an awesome God we serve. Help us to humbly come before You and not hold back no matter what we are facing. Lord, we lift up grateful hearts in praise and adoration. Amen.

Friday Prayer: No Law Required

June 9, 2016 9:58 PM by Dan

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.                                                                                         Galatians 5:22-23

 

Thank you for the truth of the Bible dear Lord. The fruit of the Spirit brings such absolute perfect order that there is no need for law when the Spirit is present. We want to live in this way Lord Jesus. Help our families, neighborhoods, cities and state to draw close to the Spirit of God. Thank you for being available to us dear Spirit. Guide and direct our lives.  Bring Your perfect peace.

Friday Prayer: Righteous Be Glad

June 2, 2016 10:50 PM by Dan

But let the righteous be glad; let them exult before God;
Yes, let them rejoice with gladness.
Sing to God, sing praises to His name;
Lift up a song for Him who rides through the deserts,
Whose name is the Lord, and exult before Him.

father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows,
Is God in His holy habitation.
God makes a home for the lonely;
He leads out the prisoners into prosperity,
Only the rebellious dwell in a parched land.

                                            Psalm 68:3-6

 

Lord, Your love for us are told by David in the Psalms over and over. You teach us to choose righteousness and not rebellion. And in doing this we see your favor, even prisoners are led out into prosperity.  Thank you for your love for us Lord. Thank you for caring for and hearing the prayer of the widow and the orphan. For hearing the prayer of the saint and the repentant sinner.  Help us to write songs that honor You dear Lord.
