Friday AM Prayer: Revival in the Church

May 10, 2012 11:21 PM by Karen

 

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Heavenly Father, You promise in Your Word that if we humble ourselves and admit our need for You, if we earnestly seek Your face more than we seek Your hand, if we turn from all habits and conditions of the heart that draw us away from You and pursue a lifestyle intent on pleasing You, then we will hear from heaven. You will forgive our sin, and You will heal our land.

Saturday AM Prayer Focus: You Are Waiting

March 17, 2012 12:27 AM by Karen

Father,
 
We need you, how we need you.
 
Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation...
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord,
in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee and will look up.
                                  -Psalm 5:1, 3
 
Thank you that as we awake you are waiting.  Now, Holy Spirit, direct us as we pray for our community, our nation, our families.

Thursday AM Prayer Focus: Be Humble and Pray

March 8, 2012 7:51 AM by Karen

If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.   II Chronicles 7:14

 

Father..
 
Please send your Holy Spirit to your church to awaken our spirits to what you are saying in this time.  These words of instruction are spoken to "those who are called by my name".  This is not spoken to those who do not know you but to us, the church.  Help us to recognize it is we who have allowed other gods to fill our minds and hearts. Help us to turn from our wicked ways.  It is the church who has been quiet and accepted less than the truth.  It is the church who has not sought your face in all matters but relied on our own understanding. Lead us into repentance for you have given this instruction to your church and evil abounds.  We need You, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to show us the way back to You.
 
Our Father, in Heaven, hallowed be your name.  Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.  Give us today, our daily bread and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
 
May we hear your voice, heed your instruction, and live to praise you, our Crucified and Risen Savior.

Saturday Prayer Focus: God's Truth

March 3, 2012 6:58 AM by Karen

"...I will open my mouth in parables.  I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world" Matt.13:35
 
Father,  You have given every lesson that we need for our life here.  You have shown us the way of love.  You have provided for justice.  Thank you that your Truth is absolute.  It protects us, it offers the way of salvation and eternal life.  Help us to cherish it, learn from it, and share it while you allow us time to do so.

Saturday AM Prayer Focus: Stay Awake

February 25, 2012 12:18 PM by Karen

 

"Jesus said, Therefore stay awake...for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning--lest he come suddenly and find you asleep."  Mark 13:35-36

 
The world is in turmoil yet we are called to be faithful.  In 1789 during a meeting with the House of Representatives a frightening darkness and storm descended in the sky.  Some thought the day of judgement was coming.  With fears increasing a motion was made for immediate adjournment. Before the motion was taken a Colonel Davenport took the floor.  He said,  "The day of judgment is either approaching or it is not.  If it is not, there in no cause for adjournment.  If it is, I choose to have the Lord find me doing me duty.  Therefore, I wish that candles be brought."

 

Father... 
Help us to work while it is day and be the candles leading the way.

Tuesday AM Prayer Focus - Teach me to do Your will

October 4, 2011 6:48 AM by Karen

Psalm 143-10 
"Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; 
May your good Spirit lead me on level ground."

 

Dearest Savior,

You know each of us by name.  You know our strengths and our weaknesses.   We desire to know your will and follow it.  These days are troublesome and there are many with great needs.  Teach us to do your will, to be your hands and feet to a hurting world.  Give wisdom to each of us and an awareness of the precious opportunities around us.

Monday AM Prayer Focus: Our Nation

September 26, 2011 8:31 AM by Karen

"When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people,  If my people who are called by my name will , will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land ..."       II Chronicles  Chapter 7  Verses 12 - 22

 
Almighty God, we have repeated II Chronicles 7:14 many times over the last several years but we must hear the rest of what you say in Chapter 7 and understand.  You have made it clear over and over.  You have demonstrated mercy and patience. We are a people who have lost our way.  In our arrogance we have taken over your position as God. Oh, God of the Universe...Oh, Jesus, Savior of the world...Oh, Holy Spirit...cleanse us, teach us, forgive us.  Let us be your bride...spotless, undefiled, seeking after you with all of our hearts.  Remove the logs in our eyes, help us love you, Creator and Redeemer.  Help us love You with all of our hearts and all of our minds.  Help us to love others above ourselves.
 
We praise You, Mighty One, for choosing us.  We honor You, we adore You.  Help us to worship You in Spirit and in Truth.
