November 30, 2013- Cheerful Giving

Prayer focus for Nov. 30-Dec. 6, 2013
This week's church prayer is for
Waterford Church of Christ
4991 Williams Lake Rd
The Bible tells us when showing mercy to do so with cheerfulness. It says when we give to do so as we have purposed in our heart—not grudgingly or under compulsion. Don’t give just because you feel forced or make an impulsive decision. Do it because you want to—you have purposed in your heart to do it, because God loves a cheerful giver. He cares not just about the gifts we give but the attitude we have when we give. “A joyful heart makes a cheerful face.” When our hearts are joyful our face will be cheerful.

I pray that the heart of Waterford becomes joyful. I pray that we seek for God’s joy and goodness. I pray we go after it, that we press into the presence of God so we can find His place of goodness and mercy. I pray His goodness and mercy fill our hearts full of joy so we overflow with goodness and mercy ourselves. I pray that we give cheerfully, that we show mercy cheerfully. I pray we don’t pass by those who need our help but we give, and when we do we do it because we want to and are happy to give, not because we feel obligated or pressured. God, fill us so full of Your joy and goodness that we just can’t help but have it bubble over onto those around us!

November 23, 2013--Hearts of the Businesses

Prayer focus for November 23-29, 2013
This week's church prayer is for
Waterford Community Church
3900 Airport Rd.

I pray for the businesses in Waterford. I pray that the hearts of the business owner’s turn towards the Lord. That the core purpose of the businesses within the township be that of worship and consecration to the Lord. Holiness to the Lord. I pray all the people of Waterford lift up their eyes to the Lord and look to Him to discover their purpose. I pray for the prosperity of God to flood them as they do that which they were created to do. Let the worshipers of Waterford arise! Let their praise arise and do battle against the schemes of the enemy that would try and destroy the dreams of Waterford. Let an army of children rise up, run and declare the goodness of God. The spirits of lawlessness, selfishness and greed be stopped. That the chains of addiction be broken. Let a spirit of giving and love for one another flow as a river of life throughout the township, watering the land, bringing growth and prosperity.

November 16, 2013- Prepare the Way

Prayer focus for November 9-15, 2013
This week's church prayer is for
Waterford Baptist Cathedral
2640 Airport Rd.

I pray for all Waterford churches that they fulfill their God-given purpose. That they be refreshed, revived, renewed. That any plans that are not of God fall by the way side. That they return to their first love.

Land, land, land of Waterford, hear the Word of the Lord—Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved!  I come against any demonic influences trying to infiltrate Waterford—the kids, schools, churches, government etc. In the Name of Jesus any and all influences of witchcraft be stopped and removed. Instead let the atmosphere of Waterford be filled with praise and the preaching and speaking of the Word of God. Let complaints and sarcasm be turned instead into words of life and healing. Prepare the way of the Lord—turn your hearts to Him!

November 9, 2013 --Tend to His Garden

Prayer focus for November 9-15, 2013
This week's church prayer is for
Trinity United Methodist Church
6440 Maceday Dr.

 In the Garden of Eden before the fall man tended to the garden of God. God created, man cultivated. Through this partnership, the glory of God’s creation continued to be explored, discovered, enhanced and revealed. All could see just how magnificent God really is. I pray God’s people partner with Him in cultivating the garden of Waterford.

Let the beautiful seeds, the potential, of Waterford be tended to by God’s people and brought to their fullest potential. Let Waterford become a place of worship. A place of rest for the Lord. Let the people discover their unique gifts and purpose in life, their individual expression of worship. Breathe your breath of life into the nostrils of Waterford O God so we become living souls that tend to Your garden, declare Your glory and reveal Your grandeur. Blow with the breathe of the Spirit upon Waterford. Speak Your words of life and truth. Let all of Waterford—the land and the lives, the young and the old—hear and obey the sound of Your voice.  Let it happen not just in the churches, but in homes, businesses, parks and in the streets. Let the sound of worship rise! A safe place, a birthplace of worship.

Prayer focus for November 2-November 8, 2013
This week's church prayer is for
Shekinah Temple Assembly of God

Let me find my unique way of praising You.
The way you created me to praise.
What were Your thoughts towards me at the start?
Breathe Your Holy Spirit into me!
I will breathe in Your breath
I will breathe in Your loving thoughts.
And I will breathe out my praise to You!

“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God
How vast is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with You."
Psalm 139:17-18
