Jesus, i pray that You would write Your message upon our hearts that we might speak life, hope, destiny and purpose into these young people
i pray that You would open their eyes to the reality of Your love and greatness, that they would find their greatest satisfaction in You. i pray that they would know who they are in You, what their giftings are and what You have called them to do and be. that they would be secure in purpose and confident in serving, empowered by the Holy Spirit.
i pray that we would have lots of fun and that you would build community amongst us, that we would create lifelong friendships and be open with one another, able to challenge honestly, encourage lavishly and walk through life together.
i pray we would learn well, that we would love Your Word and love Your presence. teach us new ways to communicate with You, to connect with You, to communicate with each other and to follow hard after Your ways and Kingdom.
The Lord will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought, And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Isaiah 58:11
Lord, fill me with Yourself
fill me with Your passion for Your world
fill me with Your perspective for my life
fill me with wonder and joy, grace and wisdom
overflow overflow overflow
thank you for new fire, for revivedness
You are truly great, truly good
it is my delight to serve You, to know You, to love You
My eyes fail from weeping,
I am in torment within;
my heart is poured out on the ground
because my people are destroyed,
because children and infants faint
in the streets of the city. Lamentations 2:11
i was moved by this verse last night… wow it gripped my heart and stirred me to pray… my heart is poured out because children and infants faint from hunger in the streets… people destroyed, people lost, they need truth and life that only Jesus can give… they need salvation and hope.
This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!” Lamentations 3:21-24
i will pray and i will remember and i will have hope because God is great and good. His salvation is real and powerful. His compassion fails not. He is merciful. Great is His faithfulness. I will have hope in Him, hope in His mercy, hope in His salvation. This is why i pray, this is why i seek Him, this is why i pour my life out.
Stir my heart to pray, O Lord.
Holy Spirit, renew a passion in me for the lost.
Draw me closer, that i may shine for you.
Thank you for your grace, your new mercy, your everlasting love.
we need a move of God
resonates in my heart today
as i look around me
and have conversations with people
as i sit in cafes, as i walk around the shop
driving in my car past random people, people with lives, needs, eternities
my heart resonates with that call for a move of God, it cries out for God to come and do what only God can do
Jesus touched the lepers and they were healed
the lame walked, the deaf heard
those that were captive and slaves to sin and pain were freed
how much more again do we need this
people that are alone and afraid
broken hearted, hopeless
physically sick, heart sick
rejected and rejecting
in need of healing
God we need you to move
come breathe upon our land
come revive the dead
heal the sick
set the captives free
my prayer today: come Jesus, come with power
Men whom God uses in revival have always been men who maintained a close walk with God and longed for a holy life. It was Robert M’Cheyne who, so greatly used by God in Dundee in 1839, had prayed from his heart, ‘Lord make me as holy as a saved sinner can be.’ The evidence of the sincerity in this prayer is seen in the fact that people would be moved to tears just by seeing him in the pulpit or walking down the corridor of the church. ~ Brian Edwards
* i’m always interested in Robert M’Cheyne as i use his bible reading plan on youversion and have for a number of years now…
thank you Holy Spirit that you are at work
in my life and through my life
i pray for your wisdom and the keys to unlock peoples hearts and minds towards You
help the walls to come down
and the doors to open
thank you for Your graciousness towards me and for the priv to see Your hand at work in people’s lives
Prayer is so powerful because it joins the hearts of people on earth with the heart of God in heaven. When we pray, we connect with God, and He affects our daily lives beyond our comprehension.
I believe prayer is one of the greatest powers available in the entire universe. That may seem like a bold statement, but it’s true!
Prayer opens the door for God to work. It is the activity that you and I can engage in on earth when we need the power of heaven to come into our lives and bring wisdom, direction, encouragement or a miraculous breakthrough. Prayer connects us to the power of God, and that is why it is a greater force than anything else we can ever imagine. Even Jesus needed to pray and receive this power when He was on earth.
Only God’s power can bring peace, instill joy, grant wisdom, impart a sense of value and purpose to a person who doesn’t know what to do in life, and work every kind of miracle.
Do you want to see that power work in your life? Then make prayer a priority.
Have you ever heard the biblical phrase "pray without ceasing"? To many, that sounds daunting and impossible. How could anyone bow their head, kneel, and pray 24 hours a day?
If that’s what you think, it might be time to change your definition of prayer. Too often we view prayer as a very specific process that can only happen once we’ve gone to a private place and shut the entire world out.
But do you realize that even directing a thought toward God qualifies as silent prayer? It’s true! Prayer is communicating with God, so when the Bible says to "pray without ceasing" it means to always be open to communication with God. That could mean a two-hour prayer session, or it could be something as simple as being aware of His presence as you go throughout your day.
God has not made prayer complicated. He intends for prayer to be an integral part of our everyday lives. Today, change your definition of prayer, and you can experience the joy that comes from constant communication with the God who loves you.
