We continue to pray county by county, for all the people of our beloved state.
My Lord, Our Lord! You are The Christ to so many. The people of yesterday, the people of today, and to the people yet to be born anew. Your throne is above all things yet somehow You enable an intimate relationship with any who acknowledge You! May You be praised!
As an intimacy with You increases, You show us there’s more to life than objects, more to life than ideals, more to life than accepting ordinary and status quo, there’s more to life than what this world has to offer. We are on this earth to live, are we not? Then teach us to live Lord! To truly live! By Your Word we will live!
Awaken our minds Lord! We wander through life – seeking meaning, seeking fulfillment, seeking more; for what? For stature? For prestige? For self assurance? Why do we need any of those things? For it is an identity in You that releases our slavery to any of it. Don’t let our minds confuse what it is our souls are actually searching for! YOU! Only You give fulfillment!
“Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.” Psalms 100:3 ESV
Our posture in life can tend to be that of position. Who’s in front of me and who am I in front of. Proximity dictates our emotional motives. We leverage opinion for position. We follow the crowd and the court of public opinion lays its judgement across the land, marking it with a stain.
Where are all us believers Lord? No more! We can’t sit idle any longer while Your throne gets misrepresented. You are Lord! King of Kings! Conqueror of death!
Awaken us O’ Lord! Break us free from following the crowd we’re not even aware we are following. Illuminate the crowds around us. Teach us by Your grace, by Your mercy, BY YOUR LOVE! You showed us exactly what we needed to see in order to do what You designed us to be!
May the name of the Lord be praised! May the Throne of the Risen King remain in its elevated place!
Lord, we pray earnestly for the wonderful people of Sheridan County. They have hurts. They have pains. They suffer. They have struggles. We pray for the churches of this county to continue to show their understanding of heaven to everyone around them.
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.
The time to stop following the behaviors of the world have come, the time to live a new life has come! We pray in the name of Christ Jesus! Amen.
