Friday Prayer: God's Mercy

July 28, 2016 10:31 PM by Dan

Remember, O Lord, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses,
For they are from of old.

Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions;
According to Your mercy remember me,
For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord.

Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.

The humble He guides in justice,
And the humble He teaches His way.

All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth,
To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.

For Your name’s sake, O Lord,
Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

                                                  Psalm 25:6-11

 

We humbly come before You merciful God, knowing we are redeemed by You, bought with the price of Your blood. We thank You for this relationship of mercy. All through our lives You care for us, cover us and strengthen us. Today we ask for those who see no mercy in this world. Those who don't have a voice. Those who cannot respond their circumstances. Please help us to care for the needy of Oregon. Help the church in the Willamette Valley be an impact upon those who need mercy. Though this effort let them see Your ultimate mercy to all of us.

Friday Prayer: The Last TIme You Sang To Me

July 21, 2016 9:40 PM by Dan

“I can’t stand your religious meetings.
    I’m fed up with your conferences and conventions.
I want nothing to do with your religion projects,
    your pretentious slogans and goals.
I’m sick of your fund-raising schemes,
    your public relations and image making.
I’ve had all I can take of your noisy ego-music.
    When was the last time you sang to me?
Do you know what I want?
    I want justice—oceans of it.
I want fairness—rivers of it.
    That’s what I want. That’s all I want.              Amos 5:21-24(Msg)

 

We do want to sing to You today Lord. No ceremony. No slogans. No projects. No fund raising schemes. We simply want to come before You and love You with our whole heart, mind, soul and strength. We search our heart today Lord and dig deeper to clean house and find a place where You can dwell. Give us a pure heart. Genuine in our faith for You. Help us to sing Your song all the day long and know You are listening.

Friday Prayer: Radical Life Change

July 14, 2016 10:03 PM by Dan

You didn’t think, did you, that just by pointing your finger at others you would distract God from seeing all your misdoings and from coming down on you hard? Or did you think that because he’s such a nice God, he’d let you off the hook? Better think this one through from the beginning. God is kind, but he’s not soft. In kindness he takes us firmly by the hand and leads us into a radical life-change

                                                                                                                                 Romans 2:3-4

 

Lord, I pray today that I would become more transparent. That I would be able confess my sins and repent and get closer to You than ever before. That I would give up pointing fingers. That I would hear Your voice through reading the scriptures and understand that You are calling me to a life of love, kindness, goodness, gentleness and faithfulness.  We praise You today for Your goodness to us as a Father. That You are willing to discipline Your children.  Help us to hear Your voice Lord.  Help us to truly continue to have a radical life-change. Let us not be satisfied with yesterday. Help us to look forward to the new changes You are making in us, the new things that you are teaching us.

Pray to Our God

July 12, 2016 11:05 PM by Diane

Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. Give heed to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for to You I will pray. Psalm 5:1-2.

Dear Lord, Only to You will we lift up our prayers. You are the one true God and the center of our worship and adoration. Thank you for allowing us to communicate in this way. You are not far off and indifferent as some think. You listen, understand, care, and know what is best for us in all circumstances.  Let us never take You and prayer for granted. Help us to pray without ceasing. Amen.

Friday Prayer: Public Prayer

July 7, 2016 9:51 PM by Dan

When our days there were ended, we left and started on our journey, while they all, with wives and children,escorted us until we were out of the city. After kneeling down on the beach and praying, we said farewell to one another. Then we went on board the ship, and they returned home again.                                                                               Acts 21:5-6

 

We are thankful Lord for your Word. Paul's journeys in Acts demonstrate a love for others and a love for You. Even as a group in the great outdoors, they knelt together on the beach and prayed. Help us to have strength in the demonstration of our belief in You dear Lord. Give us courage and strength in character to live out what we believe. We pray for our Willamette Valley and those who work directly with large portions of the public. Help them to be a continual witness of Your love and truth. Help them to be courageous to thoroughly demonstrate their faith in loving others and loving You in their outfacing position of public service.
