Prayer Focus for June 2 - June 8 2012
Prayer for the churches of Waterford!
In 2 Chronicles 7:14 where it says, "If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sin and will heal their land." This was spoken by the Lord to Solomon after Solomon built the temple and then dedicated it to the Lord. After Solomon's prayer of dedication the glory of God filled the house. They had an awesome time of worship and offered sacrifices to the Lord.
My prayer is that the churches of Waterford become a place where the Lord dwells, both individually in people's hearts and corporately in their churches. That these places are dedicated to Him, committed to Him, worship Him and that His glory fills the house and fills their hearts! God, let our hearts, our homes, our churches and our township be places dedicated to You, to house Your presence.
I pray that the churches focus on how to please the Father, not so much on pleasing the people. What does He want in His house? Where there was selfishness, let there be love. Where there was darkness, let there be light. Where there was bondage, let there be freedom. Where there was despair, let there be hope. Where there was error, let there be truth.
I pray for the people to see how much God loves them. That their eyes are opened to it, to the point where it overwhelms them with love, gratitude, thanksgiving and worship to Him in return. I pray for God's life, love, peace, truth, glory and His presence to fill His houses of worship.
The Word of God does not return void. Pray for a revelation of Jesus Christ and a resurrection of the Word of God in all the churches of Waterford.
Also, I pray for the protection of Waterford. For those who would plan crimes or begin to impulsively commit crimes, that they lose their energy and motivation and their ideas dissolve and come to nothing.
