We shout our praises to You Lord! May they echo across our beautiful state. What wonders of joy await our hearts as we lift our praises to You! Let us be the culture that look for new and creative ways to praise You! Though nothing is new to You Lord! You can give us a spirit of finding and discovering new praises in You!
Our praises to You calibrate us, to each other and to You. There is a unifying power that gets forged into the will of man, a will in which pursues You. By You, for You!
Lord we thank You for the hope found in Your Word. May we be transformed by the teaching in the Scripture!
In our humanly way of thinking, it’s easy to be transfixed on what lies before our eyes. The smells, sights and sounds of the day can cause our eyes to be placed in a negative pursuit. Conversations can be like a dark cloud trying to shadow the light in our mind.
But hope, hope is bright Lord. Hope is the strength of our mental muscle. We can push through the mire, mud and muck of the day. You are the Hope of the world. May Hope be the sunshine in our mind!
Set our sights on heavenly things Lord! We know that we are but a vapor in this world.
So now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander and foul tongues! NOW! As believers in Wyoming, it’s time for us to put on the new nature You so graciously gave to us. Let us all be renewed by You our Creator! You are all that matters!
Lord You chose us, here and now in Wyoming to be holy. May we dress ourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. May we use the light of forgiveness to conquer evils that exist around us. But most of all, saturate us with a love that comes from You, so much so, that it leaks – NO SPILLS, OVERFLOWS EVEN, onto those who don’t know You.
Then may Your peace dwell among us! May it dictate the actions in our decisions. May all the richness of You fill us so much we burst with Joy!
May the song of Wyoming reach up to the name of Jesus!
Lord we pray for the I Heart Wyoming partner in Laramie County, Frontier United Methodist. We pray for the 55,132 people who have yet to claim a church in this county. May You Lord, expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church in this county.
The time for our conversations about church to increase has come. It’s in the name of the Christ Jesus that we pray. Amen.
