Friday Prayer: Rock Higher than I

Mai 19, 2017 6:06 by Dan

Hear my cry, O God;
    listen to my prayer.

From the ends of the earth I call to you,
    I call as my heart grows faint;
    lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For you have been my refuge,
    a strong tower against the foe.

I long to dwell in your tent forever
    and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.    Psalm 61:1-4

 

Dear Lord, so often I determine my path based on my own perspective. That road looks right, that road looks good. Please lead me to a place that is higher ground where I can use your perspective to see the paths that I should walk. Let me see through Your Word and Your truth how I should live out my days in this world. Protect me from wrong roads and paths that lead to the enemy. Let me find roads that lead to where your are.

Friday Prayer: Learning to Trust

Mai 12, 2017 5:59 by Dan

The angel of the Lord came and sat down under the oak in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, where his son Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress to keep it from the Midianites. When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.”

 

“Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.”

 

The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”

 

“Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.”

 

The Lord answered, “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.”

 

Gideon replied, “If now I have found favor in your eyes, give me a sign that it is really you talking to me. Please do not go away until I come back and bring my offering and set it before you.”

 

And the Lord said, “I will wait until you return.”  Judges 6:11-18

 

 

Thank you Lord for your love for us. It is a true love that doesn't waiver when we doubt or when we fear. Please wait for us to come around to a deeper understanding of who you are. Help us to grow in trust so that we can have strength in doing the work that you have prepared for us to do. Help us to do works of kindness for our communities, living a life that shines your light in this world.

Friday Prayer: Praises To God

März 17, 2017 6:43 by Dan

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous!
For praise from the upright is beautiful.
 Praise the Lord with the harp;
Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings.
Sing to Him a new song;
Play skillfully with a shout of joy.

 For the word of the Lord is right,
And all His work is done in truth.
 He loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
 He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap;[a]
He lays up the deep in storehouses.

 Let all the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
 For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.

 The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.   Psalm 133:1-12

 

We praise You this morning Lord with our whole heart, mind and strength. Give us a new song to sing, a new vision for our ministry, new air to breathe, supplied by your Holy Spirit. Strengthen us to face the challenges. Let us focus on You to enjoy each day in Your presence.

Friday Prayer: I Am With You

Februar 17, 2017 5:52 by Dan

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”                                                                                                                                  Matt. 28:18-20

 

Lord, this morning I pray for faith for myself and believers throughout the area to live our lives in Your promises. Help us, first and foremost to know that You are with us individually. That You will never leave us nor forsake us regardless of what we are going through. We pray that You will put each of us on a firm foundation of faith in You. Help us to rely on Your Truth, Your Word, Your Work, Your love for mankind. Help us to give up our own control, living on our own ability, and help us to understand how to rely on You. Thank you for Your revelation.

Friday Prayer: Gates of Glory

Februar 10, 2017 6:03 by Dan

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it;
for he founded it on the seas
    and established it on the waters.

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
    Who may stand in his holy place?
The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
    who does not trust in an idol
    or swear by a false god.

They will receive blessing from the Lord
    and vindication from God their Savior.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
    who seek your face, God of Jacob.               Psalm 24:1-6

 

Lord we want to come to a place in our lives where we are ascending Your Holy mountain our hands open without doubt, without fear, without hypocrisy. Give us clean hands and a pure heart. Keep us away from the idolatry of wealth, position, power and fame. Let us be doers of Your Word and not simply hearers. Help us to examine our hearts and motives and release anything that we hold onto as more important than our relationship to you. Give us wisdom in this. Your wisdom. Mature us beyond the beginning of wisdom which is to rightly fear You. Help us in our relationship, our everyday walk with You. Help us to hear Your voice and do what You say.

Friday Prayer: Trust In God

Januar 27, 2017 5:49 by Dan

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6

 

We bow before You today Lord, knowing that our lives are in Your hands, the hands of the maker of heaven and earth. Help us to hear Your voice throughout our day, not getting caught up in our own accomplishments, but seeing that You have placed us here to do a good work based on Your Word and truth. Let Your church be students of the Bible with the goal of letting it influence their lives and not merely to understand it. Help Christians throughout the Willamette Valley... pray, care, give, share, walk humbly and faithfully living out these truths.

Friday Prayer: Thankful for Each Other

Januar 20, 2017 6:01 by Dan

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel that has come to you. Col. 1:3-6

 

Dear Lord, sometimes we take our brothers and sisters for granted. Help us to be like Paul who prayed regularly for those near to him involved in the work of sharing the gospel as well as for those who were new to the faith. Thank you for those in our churches who are doing the work of the gospel. Help us to help them. Help us to work together as a team using our gifts in perfect unison with theirs. Let us be humble and gentle and patient with those we work with. Bless them Lord for their faithfulness to You.

Friday Prayer: Calm

Januar 13, 2017 6:01 by Dan

Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”

He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.

Matt. 8:23-26

 

Dear Lord Jesus, Thank you that you are Lord over all things. You bring peace to even life threatening situations that look completely out of control. Help us to trust in You, to have faith, to give up our own small understanding for the wonder of what Your truth and Your word instructs us. Help us to be calm and to rest in You. Lord, we pray for the many pastors and church leaders in the Willamette Valley today. Give them calm, peace and rest as they face the world and its storms. Strengthen their trust in You and give them vision and direction for the years ahead.

Friday Prayer: Make a Run for God

Januar 5, 2017 10:08 by Dan

So, rebel-kings, use your heads;
Upstart-judges, learn your lesson:
Worship God in adoring embrace,
Celebrate in trembling awe. Kiss Messiah!
Your very lives are in danger, you know;
His anger is about to explode,
But if you make a run for God—you won’t regret it!      

                                                             Psalm 2:10-12 (The Message)

 

We ask for Your guidance today dear Lord. We want the path clear and understanding to come to us like never before. Let us run toward You and the understanding of Your giving us life and breath. Let us be willing to be used by You, not simply appreciate You, but worship and praise You all the day long. Give us a clean heart and true direction to run to You.

Friday Prayer: Life From His Life

Dezember 8, 2016 10:22 by Dan

This is how we know we’re living steadily and deeply in him, and he in us: He’s given us life from his life, from his very own Spirit. Also, we’ve seen for ourselves and continue to state openly that the Father sent his Son as Savior of the world. Everyone who confesses that Jesus is God’s Son participates continuously in an intimate relationship with God. We know it so well, we’ve embraced it heart and soul, this love that comes from God.

                                                                1 John 4:13-16  Message

 

Thank You Lord for Your love for us. You give us life from Your Life. You are with us all the day long. Help us to live this reality with You. Help us to rely on You, listen to You, walk with You and pray to You all the day long. Forgive us when we fail You, when we turn our back. Let us be honest and confess our sins to You. Help us to be wise and altogether stay away from sin. Let us live a sincere Christian life putting You first.  We pray for the family of Christ in the Willamette Valley that we would live more and more for You.
