Prayer focus for week of April 14 - April 20, 2012
Pierce Middle School
First church of the Brethren
St. Andrews Episcopal Church
Pray for the Christians of the Township to take the time to pray and spend time with the Lord. We read in Acts 4:13 that it became evident, even to the adversaries of Peter and John, that they had been with Jesus. People could tell that they had spent time with Him. Pray for God's people to respond to God's drawing them into time with Him. And as we soak in His presence that we carry the fragrance of Christ with us. (2 Corinthians 2:14).
Pray that the Christians seek for truth and purity of heart and motives so that as we go about our daily lives we don't try and just convince people to come to the Lord, but we carry a true presence of the Spirit of God that will touch their hearts in a way we never could with the wisdom of our own words. (1 Corinthians 2:4). And that the same is true of what is being taught in the churches, that it's not just convincing words that reach people mentally, but that the ministers are touching the heart of God, presenting His Word in the power of the Holy Spirit that will save, heal and set people free. That the Word of God is spoken in truth, and not out of impure motives. (1 Kings 17:24).
Pray that an army of believers rise up in Waterford filling the township with the presence of God, for His glory and for the salvation of the people in this township!
Also pray for wisdom for the Township Board to find ways to save money that they have not thought of before.
