My Lord, my King, my Light – hear my prayer:
Once I looked up to the Light, that’s when I could truly observe those planted in You. My understanding was no longer clouded in darkness. I could begin to see how, in their serving, they are rooted in You. I watched as Your radiance leapt off of them in their worship of You. It was as if the worship literally danced right off of them! For the first time, it was beautiful! I wasn’t able to tell how long they’ve attended Your church, but I could certainly see their commitment to You.
The morning rays sparkle as they dance off the tips of the trees….
Lord put us in the frame of mind for worship. Teach us through the daring commitment of others to drop our human and earthly definition of worship and to give our bodies to You! Teach us to build Your temple within ourselves.
“With praise and thanks, they sang this song to the Lord: “He is so good! His faithful love for Israel endures forever!” Then all the people gave a great shout, praising the Lord because the foundation of the Lord’s Temple had been laid.” Ezra 3:11 NLT
Worship births out of experience, experience is steered by You! Give us (everyone throughout Wyoming) an experience that lights us up!
Lord when Ezra led the charge to take on the massive undertaking of rebuilding the Temple. You were there! You called the people in exile from that region into action! You aligned them in unity! You gave them an experience centered in Holy motive and virtuous effort, then they rose to the occasion! And in the end, all they were left with was their worship to You! Their souls were completely gripped with the honor brought and raised up to You!
Our Lord! Our King! Our Light! Give us – grant us that experience here in Wyoming! Let us work diligently to build Your temple here in unity!
We give all praise to You – our Light!
We pray with the people of Real Life Church in Sheridan. We pray for the 16,535 people who have yet to connect into a gospel church in this county. May You Lord, expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church in this county.
As the river flows, so the time has come for us to let the current carry us. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
