County 5 – Albany County 

What opportunity awaits for us to claim Jesus as Lord and Savior today! Today is a gift, a blessing, a renewing of our spirit! Lord, what would You have us say through our actions today? How can we best show You through the deeds we should pursue? Lord there are those who do not attend a church, how could we best communicate You to them? 

Let us begin with joy in our hearts! Joy triumphs over evil! Storms dissipate! Mountains flatten! We become deaf to evil over the shouts and praises from joy! May Your name be praised over and over and over! Hosanna! 

At least 23,227 people in Albany County are not connected to the local church. Why Lord? Is it Your will that we don’t belong to each other? May the joy from the believers fuse our communities to You! 

“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:22-23‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Heavenly Father, may Your presence dwell among the communities where there are believers. May this presence be an impact to those who do not attend a church in Albany County. 

We seek You Lord! Help us to define joy in You to this world! It’s become skewed, diluted, and turned upside down. But true joy in You allows us to see as You see. It allows us to pursue others as You pursue. It allows us to look beyond failure and see success from You! You are God, we are not! 

Thank You Lord Jesus for all that You do to pursue us. May we learn to be of assistance, may we serve You with complete joy! 

The time for change in our communities has come! In Jesus name we pray, amen!
