"And they shall rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former desolations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations." Isaiah 61:4
Father God I pray for Your "ancient" plans and purposes for this township to be rebuilt. The ancient ruins--the original purposes that were started but were lost. Let this plot of land return to You for Your kingdom. Raise up those things that were neglected or destroyed that are a part of Your plans and intents for Waterford.
"Remove not the ancient landmark which your fathers have set up." Proverbs 22:28
Father God I pray You reveal the ancient landmarks--the things that will show us Your "ancient" plans for this township, our families, churches and businesses. Show us those things that You've revealed to others in the past about this land that have been lost. Let us recover and restore those things. Open our eyes to these landmarks so we can see Your purposes!
Let all of the churches, pastors, leaders and those in positions of influence be placed in proper position. Rearrange them so they are in the place You've called them to be. Raise up and position those who need to be in positions of leadership and influence and place them where they need to be.
Let the ancient landmarks in our families--the generations before us--be revealed. Show us the calling of our ancestors that You still have upon our lives today. Show us Your plans and intent for our individual plots of land-our homes. Move and rearrange residents. Call those here that need to be here. Move those out that are called to be somewhere else. Let us fulfill Your purpose in our lives and for this land and this region.
Re-connect us to our land--the earth--the city or town that You've called us to. Just as before the coming of the Lord the first time everyone was called to return to their "own city",* so return us to the place You've called us to. Resurrect the roots! Reveal the ancient landmarks!
