Prayer focus for June 15-21 2013
This week's church prayer is for:
Lakecrest Baptist Church
35 Airport Rd.
Father God I pray your people draw near to You with their heart. I pray we search our own heart and see the truth of what is there. I pray we don't just have an appearance of godliness but that we truly desire You and Your ways.
Let us replace criticism, sarcasm, complaining and unrighteous judgments with worship, praise and thanksgiving. Let our words match our hearts so that even if we have ungodliness in our hearts we confess it and repent and turn towards You to be filled with Your Holy Spirit. Let the blood of Jesus flow through our hearts bringing forgiveness, cleansing and making us like You!
God helps us not to judge according to appearance, or to judge unrighteously. Help us not to simply look at outward behavior, but to look at the heart and judge righteous judgment.
Matthew 15:8, John 7:24; 2 Corinthians 5:16
