Prayer focus for July 7-July 13, 2012
In the beginning was the Word....(John 1:1)
Everything starts with a word. Everything God does starts with a word from Him. I believe that last year, 2011, was the beginning of a new season in Waterford. A ten year season. We are still at the beginning of that season and there is a Word from God concerning this season. Even though 2 Chronicles 7:14 is a part of that I believe there is more "beginning words" God wants us to get a hold of.
The ground is being tilled, we are preparing the way for the Lord and as we walk on a new path and acknowledge Him in all we do, every day, He wants to walk with us. We need to ask for His perspective because, of course, it's so much better than ours, but He wants us to share our desires with Him as well. Yes, He already knows them but He wants us to share them with Him. That's really what prayer is isn't it? As we walk with the Lord, as we would a friend, and talk together our perspective becomes so much clearer and He, hearing our specific desires, has all of heaven's resources available to answer our prayers!
The word for today is, get the word for today. As you walk on your path today, seek Him and His perspective and share your thoughts, feelings, desires, hopes & dreams with Him as well--For your church, your family, your neighborhood, your government etc. Let Him know, and listen to Him too. One word from Him, when received and acted upon, can set things in motion that will bring your desires to pass. Even a small, seemingly insignificant word from God is full of life!
This ten year season of prayer will give us tenure in Waterford. It will give God and His people a place, a permanent place that can not be taken away. But the terms and conditions will be established during this season of prayer now. Let's not waste this season!
