Friday Prayer: Wisdom

April 16, 2015 9:48 PM by Dan

Wisdom has built her house;    she has set up its seven pillars.
She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine; she has also set her table.
She has sent out her servants, and she calls from the highest point of the city,
“Let all who are simple come to my house!” To those who have no sense she says,
“Come, eat my food and drink the wine I have mixed.
Leave your simple ways and you will live; walk in the way of insight.”   Proverbs 9:1-6

 

Today we pray for those who we know who have walked away from You Lord.  Our neighbors, our friends, our family. Those who have lost sight of Your wisdom and replaced it with a temporary fulfilment, a temporary life with no vision of the eternal, no understanding of the creator.  Help them Lord. We also pray for the church to be strengthen in our resolve to live for your to follow You, to live in Your light. To live in wisdom.

Friday Prayer: Allies

April 9, 2015 9:57 PM by Dan

“Master,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us.”

 “Do not stop him,” Jesus said, “for whoever is not against you is for you.” Luke 9:49

Lord, help Your church understand Your way with others who are not like us.  Give us a heart of compassion for them, a willingness to support and encourage them rather than belittling and assaulting them. Let us be kind to those who we do not see eye to eye with. To those who we are uncomfortable with who seem to not be completely walking with you.  Give us Your wisdom in these things for the sake of the church in Albany and Oregon.

Friday Prayer: Protection

March 26, 2015 10:57 PM by Dan

Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart. May the foot of the proud not come against me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.

Psalm 36:10-11

 

Lord, we put our trust in You. We pray for protection for our churches, homes and families. May your hand guard and cover our lives and the lives of our loved ones, friends and neighbors. We ask for your protection of our town Albany. Please give insight to those who are in positions of authority to do what is best for the people of this city. To keep it safe and to build a future. Thank you for our home.

Friday Prayer: With Us

March 19, 2015 10:45 PM by Dan

“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”  Matt. 18:19-20

 

Lord, Your promise to us is encouraging. It doesn't take many. It takes agreement of two or more in prayer to You. And You hear and dwell with those in prayer. Thank you for your promise.  Thank you for your presence.

Friday Prayer: Strengthen Us

March 12, 2015 11:18 PM by Dan

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
    let me never be put to shame;
    deliver me in your righteousness.
Turn your ear to me,
    come quickly to my rescue;
be my rock of refuge,
    a strong fortress to save me.
Since you are my rock and my fortress,
    for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
Keep me free from the trap that is set for me,
    for you are my refuge.
Into your hands I commit my spirit;
    deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.

                                                                        Psalm 31:1-5

 

Dear Lord we come to you in need for rescue, in need for restoration, strength, grace, direction, vision and hope. How many needs can we share with you dear God. And You hear them all. Strengthen us. Lead us not into temptation. Deliver us from evil.  Make our paths straight. Today we pray for all who are hurting and fearful, that they would find comfort in you.

Friday Prayer: Wisdom From God

March 5, 2015 10:35 PM by Dan

Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 1 Corinthians 26-30

 

Today we pray for a clearer understanding of God's purposes for our local church. Through our humility and caring for others, in living our lives for Christ, may we individually fulfill His plan for our lives. We pray for wisdom from God, understanding from God, and strength through his righteousness, holiness and redemptive power. Please revive and strengthen Your church in Albany King Jesus.

Friday Prayer: Know and Rely on God's love

February 26, 2015 10:12 PM by Dan

If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:15-18

 

Lord, so often I don't rely on Your love for me.  I think that my life is about my own ability and not Yours through me.  Help us to remember You are always here with us, wanting to be put to work to instruct, direct and assist us with our day. Help us to use Your Word and Your Spirit to guide our day and see it through to success.  Help us to love like You did.  Thank your Lord.

Friday Prayer: Blessings and Thanks

February 19, 2015 10:55 PM by Dan

May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.
May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.
 
May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
May we shout for joy over your victory
and lift up our banners in the name of our God.  Psalm 20:1-5
 
We remember this morning that You are the source of all blessing, all comfort, all protection Lord God. We celebrate that in reading Psalm 20 and knowing that your blessings are near. That you would give us the desires of our heart and make all our plans succeed. You love us that much. Thank you Lord for Your kindness to us.

Friday Prayer: Strength of Job

February 13, 2015 12:49 AM by Dan

After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before.  Job 42:10

Dear Lord, You asked Job to pray for his friends and he did. What a tremendous demonstration of love. In particular after Job had suffered so much verbal abuse from them. He had to be a humble man to forgive them and to follow through with a kindness of prayer to demonstrate that forgiveness. Lord, teach us to pray for each other. Even those who have offended us. Give us the strength of Job.
