Prayer focus for February 23-March 1, 2013
This week's church prayer is for:
Church of Christ
Father God, once again, I pray for all the churches in Waterford. I pray for all of Your people. That we be interrupted from just going about our daily lives not thinking about You, not seeking You or your ways and plans for us. Let us stop what we are doing and take time to seek Your face!
Even if we have to fast to interrupt our appetites. If we need to detox our bodies, our words, our spending habits help us to do it. Let us remember Your Sabbath. Let us stop doing our own works and do Yours instead.
I pray for all of the pastors and leaders in Waterford and in our churches. Once again that You place everyone in proper position. Rearrange. I pray for children and youth pastors as well. For nursery workers, for worship leaders and worshippers. For prayer leaders and intercessors. That everyone be in their proper place and position. That every one be awakened to Your call for them to fulfill Your plan and purpose in their life.
I pray that a spirit of antichrist that would try to influence the church and your people come to nothing. 1 John 2:18-19 says that many antichrists went out from the church--began there, but left so it would be evident they were not of the believers. Let it be revealed and clear what comes from Your Spirit of Truth and what does not. Let the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ shine in the hearts of Waterford revealing Your love and Truth. 2 Corinthians 4:3-6. Let the church be places where life, healing, health and restoration can be found. Let the tree of life be at each church!
Lord God, break up the hard ground of our hearts so we may receive You and Your Word deep where it can take root and grow and change us into Your glorious image!
