Friday Prayer: Trust In God

January 27, 2017 5:49 AM 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

January 20, 2017 6:01 AM 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

January 13, 2017 6:01 AM 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

January 5, 2017 10:08 PM 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.
