DAILY PRAYER REQUESTS
Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2.
Ever wonder why our prayers don't always get an immediate response? The simple answer is that they do. It's just that sometimes God's answer is "wait." We are by nature an impatient species. Patience is a fruit of the Holy Spirit, not the human spirit. And, bam! Right there we get some insight into why God doesn't always do what we ask when we ask.Waiting causes us to trust in God's wisdom, not our own. It fine-tunes our faith and causes us to grow in ways we could not do otherwise. So don't give up on those long-time requests. Keep believing; keep asking and above all keep praising God for all He has done and all He will do.
- Pray for Evan who has a cyst on his back. Ask that he be healed completely and that he gives God all the glory for delivering him from this painful condition.
- Pray for Jim who had a stroke six months ago. Ask that God will be with him as he adjusts to his reality. Pray that his relationship with Jesus will grow.
- An anonymous person asks that we pray they will be able to get much needed eye glasses and also a job that is God-chosen. Please pray that God will provide for those needs and any others.
- R.J. who is active in Calvary Austin Texas asks that we pray for his 18-year-old cousin, Carter, who lives in Boise and has been addicted to heroin for at least six months. Carter does not know the Lord. Pray that God will establish divine appointments so that Carter will be surrounded by Christians and that the love and kindness of Jesus will lead him to repentance.
- We have an anonymous request for a 16-year-old girl who is involved with drugs. She has court dates July 5 and July 24. Pray for the Lord’s will to be done, and also for God’s kindness and great love to lead her to repentance and salvation.
- Pray for the Women's Summer picnic to be held July 18 and especially for Lizzie Dyrud our speaker.
- Pray fervently that God will send just the right person to fill the administrative positions at Calvary Boise.
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us, and if we know that He hears us, we know we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
- I John 5:14-15
