Prayer focus for April 20 to April 27, 2012
Shekinah Temple Assembly of God
New Beginning Baptist Church
This week I am putting the prayer focus up a day early since I will be unavailable to do it on Saturday.
Over the past several months a lot of the prayer focus has been on the government, elections, kids and schools and most recently the churches and God's people. All of these areas are important and need to be kept in prayer but I feel we are going to be praying for the churches in Waterford a lot over the next few months. And I believe there will be some prayer walks this summer--an opportunity to get out on the street and pray.
Pray for the churches. The names of the churches we are praying for this week speak to us--Let the Shekinah Glory fall and a New Beginning begin! Pray for every yoke of bondage to be removed from pastors and church leaders, from the congregations and from the Christians in the township who are not going to a church. Pray for the churches to become a place of refuge where people can find freedom, deliverance and victory in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray that anything and everything that would bring people in bondage, from demonic deceptions to religious spirits and any other obstacles that would prevent people from seeing the truth, are removed from our churches so people can see the truth and be set free. Pray that the churches are free for God's glory and deliverance to be there.
Pray for revival for all the churches. That revival comes to the township of Waterford and not just to one church. As awesome as that is when revival hits a church, pray for it to hit the entire township and all the churches. That the heart of the people turn towards the Lord bringing the grace of His presence into our midst.
When the ark of the Lord, which carried God's presence, was in the house of Obed-edom for three months before being brought to the city of David, the Lord blessed Obed-edom and all his household. (2 Samuel 6:11). When God's presence is here with us, it will bring great blessing to us. Let us humble ourselves before God, honoring His presence, asking Him to show us how we can host His presence among us, giving Him the honor due to Him.
