We pray. We pray to our Lord. We pray many things. We pray to be involved and intimate with the Lords will.
What could we possibly pray that’s more profound than a single prayer that takes a lifetime to unfold, one in which our intimacy with the Christ Jesus reaches a bonding, a unifying, and an edifying relationship with the Risen King. May we all seek intentions worthy of the sacrifice found on the cross.
A question with a seemingly obvious answer; do I pray for Him to change a particular circumstance, or do I pray for His will to be done through me in any circumstance? Change the circumstance or change me? In which would His glory be revealed the most?
Deep within our prayer for others, the praying increases our connection to the Lord. The connection to the Lord increases His will in us. His glory will be revealed in circumstance and through the connected. An unexplainable joy begins to thread itself into the very fabric of our life.
“Pursue the well-being of the city I have deported you to. Pray to the Lord on its behalf, for when it thrives, you will thrive.”” Jeremiah 29:7 CSB
Let us pray for our people across Wyoming.
Our Father, who is in Heaven, we thank You for the abundant blessings in our life. Even on days when it seems challenging to be thankful, we are lavished in Your presence. All praise to You!
Inside Your will, Your Living Water flows freely into us. A peace that builds us. Your peaceful streams fill us with life changing properties.
“He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.” Psalms 23:3 NLT
As Your Living Water flows, it’s current carries us and our decision making process with it. So when we arrive at an undesirable circumstance, the current in Your will carries us through it. The circumstance is not the focus, Your glory is.
The current carries us further along and the circumstance passes. We continue to find peace in the Your streams that flow freely to us. Lord, may we always find ourselves in a position that we can receive Your Living Water.
We pray for the 5,186 people in this county who have yet to connect into a gospel church. May our 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.
