Heavenly Father, we come to You. Lord hear our prayer.
You are above all things. You are placed high above anything we could imagine, further than anything we could see. Even Your name sits beyond all authority.
Thank You for all the gifts in our life. You fill our life with blessings of all kind. Some we can touch and feel, others we can experience, and some are way bigger than we could ever comprehend.
We pray for a heartbeat like Yours Jesus. You are Holy and righteous. In Your passion and pursuits, You posses a posture of protection over what’s pure.
“In the Temple area he saw merchants selling cattle, sheep, and doves for sacrifices; he also saw dealers at tables exchanging foreign money. Jesus made a whip from some ropes and chased them all out of the Temple. He drove out the sheep and cattle, scattered the money changers’ coins over the floor, and turned over their tables. Then, going over to the people who sold doves, he told them, “Get these things out of here. Stop turning my Father’s house into a marketplace!” Then his disciples remembered this prophecy from the Scriptures: “Passion for God’s house will consume me.” But the Jewish leaders demanded, “What are you doing? If God gave you authority to do this, show us a miraculous sign to prove it.” “All right,” Jesus replied. “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” “What!” they exclaimed. “It has taken forty-six years to build this Temple, and you can rebuild it in three days?” But when Jesus said “this temple,” he meant his own body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered he had said this, and they believed both the Scriptures and what Jesus had said.” John 2:14-22 NLT
Your body, the body of Your church should have the same position towards protecting purity. Your house is pure Father. And thank You Jesus for teaching us how when to be angry. When it’s for the purpose of protecting purity.
Let us praise You Lord! Even in Your anger You show us grace and mercy. You clearly teach us accountability is a shield and love is a weapon. The body of Christ could be called to the same. Align us Lord with the type of compassion that comes from You!
All praise to our Lord in Heaven!
Today we pray with, and for the people of Wyoming through Goshen County. We pray for a connection through the I Heart Wyoming initiative to be established here. We pray over the leadership and congregation of SONrise Church. We pray for the 9,166 people who have yet to connect into a gospel church in this county. May our Lord expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church in this county.
The time to be connected as one has come, in Jesus name we pray, amen.
