Prayer focus for March 17 - March 23, 2012
Trinity United Methodist Church
Two words came to mind while praying today:
Seasons: Pray that as the seasons change and people re-evaluate their schedules that they have an inward reflection time as well and their hearts turn towards the Lord. That their plans include Him, take Him into consideration and even that people seek God and inquire of Him what their plans should be.
Momentum: As momentum builds for the elections pray that people don't listen to the hype surrounding the elections but rather we look for the slow and steady thing that God is building. If we jump on the fast-moving train that builds speed too fast then we will eventually crash with force. But the thing that God builds will stand. Listen and look for what is of Him and not at what seems so good just for the moment.
While praying for Schoolcraft Elementary I really got the sense that other(s) have been praying for this school as well. Add to those prayers peace, blessing and safety for the school, kids, families, teachers and staff.
Pray for the churches that they have financial growth. That the finances are consistent and steady. As the people cry out to God He will meet them. As they minister to the Lord in their services God's presence will come and will deliver them from troubles. God will show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect towards Him.
Pray for the airport and the air traffic controllers. They they have good working conditions. The same for the Police/Fire Department dispatchers also.
When we seek God's will then He can freely move among us. When we try and use Him as power for our own plans then we create a tangled web that He cannot move freely through.
Let all of Waterford pause and take a moment to reflect on God!
