Prayer focus for the week of February 18-February 24, 2012
Bethany Baptist Church
Pray for the hearts of the people to seek the truth. That we are no longer content to live with lies or deceptions in our lives. That we have hearts that want the truth and hearts that want to please our Heavenly Father. Pray that God pours out His love on the people and the the people respond to Him and His great love in praise and worship.
Knudsen Elementary: Prayer for protection for the school, children and families. That the families are strong. That school is a place where true learning can take place. That teachers and staff do not become "weary in well doing" but that they have a sense of purpose and do not feel hopeless or overwhelmed by any tasks before them. That they can see the good they are doing and become encouraged by that.
Bethany Baptist Church: That God pour out fresh love on the church. That all the people remember their first love and fall in love with Him all over again. That they all draw closer to the Lord. That God bless them and their outreach efforts to the community. That they continue to be a stable presence in the community and a place where people can come and find true help from the Lord.
Government: That all forms of government affecting the Township, from the township all the way up to the Federal government, turn to the heart of the people and become true representatives of the people as our founding fathers intended. And that the people turn to the heart of the Lord and become true representatives of the Lord. Then God's Kingdom will come, His will will be done in our land.
Pray that God's people stay true to Him and that we raise up a generation that, as Noah and his family did, stays true to the Lord and a righteous life in spite of whatever evil influences are going on around them.
Have a great week!
