Tuesday AM Prayer Focus - Pray for Those Around Us

December 4, 2012 6:51 AM by BJ

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,  in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.  Collosians 1:9-14

Dear Lord, we continue to pray for the people of our town, local area and state.  We desire to see all living come to the knowledge of Christ.  Give us favor in this area Lord.  Help us all to be a good example and those who display Your spirit living within us.  Help our works and the works of those around us to be good and right.  Give us deep understanding of how to pray to inspire our community and country to pray.

Psalm 103:1-5

Praise the Lord, my soul;

 Praise the Lord, my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits— 
who forgives all your sins 
    and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit

    and crowns you with love and compassion, 
who satisfies your desires with good things

    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Monday AM Prayer Focus: Psalm 8

August 15, 2011 6:17 AM by BJ

   O LORD, our Lord,

         How excellent is Your name in all the earth, 
         Who have set Your glory above the heavens! 
 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
         You have ordained strength, 
         Because of Your enemies, 
         That You may silence the enemy and the avenger. 
 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
         The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
 What is man that You are mindful of him,
         And the son of man that You visit him?
 For You have made him a little lower than the angels,[b]
         And You have crowned him with glory and honor. 
 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
         You have put all things under his feet,
 All sheep and oxen—
         Even the beasts of the field,
 The birds of the air,
         And the fish of the sea 
         That pass through the paths of the seas. 
 O LORD, our Lord,
         How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

Sunday Prayer Focus: ...Gain New Strength

July 9, 2011 11:42 PM by BJ

Isaiah 40:28-31    Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet, those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.

Heavenly Father I thank you for your Word that brings hope. As churches traditionally gather today I pray for the effective ministering of you Word to encourage your Bride, the greater body of Christ. I ask you to inhabit the worship. That the power of your Presence would so fill your congregations that revival would break forth in every heart. That You would be glorified and blessed. Thank you for the family of God. We will wait for you. We will gain new strength. Amen.

Sunday Am Prayer Focus: Start With God

June 25, 2011 10:25 PM by BJ

Heavenly Father I praise Your Name. You are amazing and I just wanted to tell you I become speechless at the thought of your kindness. It makes me weep. I could not even begin to think of that kind of depth of love and I love You for it. Jesus, you are the Hope and Saviour of the World. That You were willing to leave Heaven, take the form of a man, be birthed, suffered and die, it defies description. Thank You for Your Mercy. I love you. Holy Spirit, You capativate me. Your Power and Glory and Dominion are everlasting. You are the King of Glory. I can hardly understand that I get to call You my friend, feel Your presence, and know Your are the Faithful One. You never abandon or leave Your children. You are my comforter. I love You. Father, this day, as your people gather to Worship and Praise, please inhabit our praise. You are so worthy of our adoration, we adore you. Fill our hearts with Your presence, be one with us in our praise. We want to start our day, our week, with time with You. We need more of You than any other thing. Minister to us, we are Your Bride, Your Body, wash us with understanding, and wisdom that comes from Your Word. Use us this day to encourage and bless others. Keep us from sin, mature in us more of You. Amen

Sunday AM Prayer Focus: Psalm 138 The Message

June 19, 2011 12:18 AM by BJ

Psalm 138.Thank you! Everything in me says "Thank you!" Angels listen as I sing my thanks. I kneel in worship facing your holy temple and say it again: "Thank you!" Thank you for your love, thank you for your faithfulness; Most holy is your name, most holy is your Word. The moment I called out, you stepped in; you made my life large with strength. When they hear what you have to say, God,all earth's kings will say "Thank you." They'll sing of what you've done: "How great the glory of God!" And here's why: God, high above,sees far below; no matter the distance, he knows everything about us. When I walk into the thick of trouble,keep me alive in the angry turmoil. With one hand strike my foes,With your other hand save me. Finish what you started in me,God. Your love is eternal—don't quit on me now. Abba, Father, We, your bride, love you. You are the Greatest Father ever known, we celebrate you this day and forever will praise you.

Sunday AM Prayer Focus: Examine Our Lives

May 29, 2011 8:51 AM by BJ

It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees. The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold. Psalm 119:71-72


Dear Lord, we thank You that You have us examine our lives even through the hard times. In particular we thank You for Your conviction and chastening. Today we pray that the church would desire to examine their hearts. That You would search us and try us and examine our ways. Bless our efforts in this... that even our guilt would be a benefit, as it causes us to change our ways and become more like You.
