Prayer focus for May 25-31, 2013
This week's church prayer is for:
Grace Missionary Church
4060 Elizabeth Lake Rd.
Thoughts & Prayers during the prayer walk:
Whatever the reasons for people originally settling in Waterford, (survival, recreation), now I pray people see the beauty of the Township and honor You. Let the beauty of nature--the lakes, streams, plants, birds etc. all speak of Your glory and draw people closer to You. Let there be an increase in the beautification efforts in the Township.
Father God, raise up neighborhood shepherds and strategically place them in neighborhoods throughout the Township. Let them have a spiritual authority and anointing to bring life to their neighborhoods. Let them have favor and resources to accomplish Your purposes.
Let Your people draw closer to You with a passion and hunger and a new resolve to seek You and worship You like never before. Let the backsliders, those who have lost their way, and the misguided return to you.
I pray for protection-spiritually and physically over this quadrant and the township as a whole. May it be safe from harm and from deceptive influences. Let the idols be torn down and exposed for what they really are.
Show Your power, glory and might. Let there be healings, miracles and deliverance. Pour out Your Spirit. Let Your people hunger for the Word of God. Resurrect the Word that has been spoken to people. Let their be new preaching of Your Word and Bible Studies.
Let their be revival among the teachers and educators. Let them turn from spiritual error and deception. Let Christian educators be anointed and blessed with Your wisdom, skill and ideas. Let them have strength, energy, health, resources and time. Let them be in high demand .
Let there be a new trend among the youth. That they not follow the crowd. Not the usual thing, not what everyone else is doing. That no longer is their uniqueness stemmed from rebellion, but from a desire to be holy. That this trend draws and attracts people to Jesus Christ. May the kids increase in knowledge and understanding of the Word of God.
Those who prey on the weak and defenseless--let their plans come to nothing.
Let there be springs, pockets, hot spots for the Spirit of God. Places of refuge and rest. Let the churches be wellsprings. Let there be personal revivals. May Your people once again hunger and thirst for righteousness and true holiness.
May there be no envy, but let everyone discover their purpose and calling in life. That they are not hopeless. That they find their place. Let the thing that is keeping Your people from discovering their calling go from them. Let them be led with peace. Not shallow or envious but discovering the Kingdom within. The Kingdom of God is within Your people! The enemy tries to get to that Kingdom. May everyone discover the gifts You've given them, which begins by worshiping You!
Let there be a revelation of Your goodness! Let us see the greatness of what You've done for us. Let Your goodness lead us to turn and repent from sin and the dead works and weights that would lead us away from You and Your plans for us!
"How much more surely shall the blood of Christ, Who by virtue of [His] eternal Spirit...has offered Himself as an unblemished sacrifice to God, purify our consciences from dead works...to serve the..living God?" Hebrews 9:14, The Amplified Bible.
