Our Pastor just left our Church. I lift him and his family up , that God will direct, send, and protect them.
That they will find the Lords perfect place to receive, themselves, and to minister to others the Lords love.
A Godly man, a loving man, a man that will be missed.
I have stolen some Biblical prayers to give to the congregation, to pray for growth of the Lords body in our little corner of the world.
Your are welcome to use any part of it to pray for your church or ours. Comments are always welcome .
Thanks for visiting .
Lord, we love you and come to You now to remind You, that we are Your people, the sheep of Your pasture.
You promised us in Psalm 23, that You are our Shepherd and we shall not want.
Well Lord, I am sorry, but this body of believers, is in want. We remember when the pews of this building were packed with souls that loved You.
We remember the Spirit being alive, and it was exciting to learn of and to walk with You.
So knowing that it is Your Word that You honor, I borrow from Your Word to pray, for Your Church. (Snippets from Ephesians).
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
Since You hath chosen us in Christ,
before the foundation of the world, (I ask You to help us Lord, to learn to be holy, without blame, to be acceptable, to You).
You have made known unto us the mystery of Your will, according to Your good pleasure which You hath purposed in Yourself:
Wherefore I cease not to give thanks for (our Church body), making mention of them in my prayers;
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto us, the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
That the eyes of our understanding be enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of our calling, and what the riches of the glory, of our inheritance is, in the saints,
And what is the exceeding greatness of Your power to us who believe, according to the working of Your mighty power, for by grace are we saved through faith; and that not of ourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
We are Your workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
That he would grant us, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
That Christ may dwell in our hearts by faith; that we, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that we might be filled with all the fulness of God.
That we grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
We let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from us, with all malice:
And being kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven us.”
Lord, change our hearts and minds, help us to lift you up, so that You can draw all men to Yourself.
Let Your Spirit, guide, teach and direct us, into Your perfect will. Help us to be obedient, loving children, to build Your Body, Your Church.
We thank You, for this beautiful building. We ask You to build Your body, to use us, for Your glory.
