I felt such a sense of "honoring God" today.  My prayer was that the people of Waterford would come to a place where they desire to honor God in all that they do.  The residents, businesses, churches and even the government consider and honor God in everything.  Biblical principles are the only guideline for living that really works in a society.  We can't have laws that cover everything and make everything fair for everyone.  But God's laws make it all work.  Hearts need to be changed so they will see the wisdom of this and desire to live this way.

Pray that any obstacles to the love of God being poured out into the hearts of the people be removed.  That the hearts, minds, eyes and ears of the people be open and receptive to God's love.  We love Him because He first loved us, 1 John 4:19.  Pray that the love of God melt away the hardness of hearts that would not give entrance to His love.

Pray that the light of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ shine into the hearts of the people.  That there be a revelation of Jesus Christ to all the people.  That people see the truth and it makes them free.  Pray for the Word of God to be revived and Jesus to be resurrected in the lives of the people of Waterford.  That their hearts are good soil for the Word of God, making room for Him.  Pray that the Word brings life, health, healing, peace, salvation deliverance and all the fullness of God to the people. 2 Corinthians 4:3-4, John 8:32, Mark 4:20.

The Bible tells us that God's Word doesn't return to Him void but accomplishes what it was sent to do.  Isaiah 55:11.  I felt very strongly that we need to pray and declare the Word of God over the Township because it will accomplish what God intends when we do that.  So every week there will be Scripture that we can speak and pray over the Township several times throughout the week, believing that God will accomplish His purposes through that. This week two Scriptures came to me:
  • If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14.
  • And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.  Revelation 12:11
Father God we humble ourselves before You, pray and seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways.  We know that You are faithful to hear us, forgive us and heal our land.  We declare forgivenss and healing for Waterford Township. Thank You for healing, mending, curing and making whole the land of Waterford Township and it's people.

We, the people of Waterford overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony and by not loving our own lives more than You.
