DAILY PRAYER REQUESTS
July 7, 2017
These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication. -Acts 1: 14.
It's a wonderful thing when God's people are united. We have so much in common--membership in His family, a shared inheritance in His Kingdom and the same call to love those around us and thereby bring Him glory. When we are united God commands a blessing (Psalm 133). Satan knows that truth--often times better than we do. This is why he works overtime to cause us to fall prey to the petty things that divide us. Today, thank God that we are united by the power of prayer. Ask that any discouraging spirit of division wouldn't affect us, but that our church family would be knit together with the bonds of God's unfailing love.
- Praise God that Jesus Christ died “once and for all”. Pray that we, as believers, are aware that He always stands at the doors of our hearts eager to help us grow in the knowledge of Him and His perfect will for us.
- Natalie Bridges, one of our missionaries in Romania asks that we pray for Margherita, who recently accepted Christ as her Savior; pray for meaningful spiritual growth and a Spirit-filled walk with the Lord.
- Please pray for Robin. Ask for reconciliation with Carissa and that her daughter’s financial obligations will be met by God’s perfect provision. Pray that the Lord is glorified in this.
- An anonymous contributor shares this Five-Finger Prayer with our team. If you memorize it, you’ll always have a “prayer list” at hand:Thumb: pray for loved ones,
Index-finger: pray for the Bible teachers and preachers you know. The ones who “point” you to the truth,
Tall finger: Pray for those who stand above you in authority—national, local leaders and your supervisor or superior at work, school or at home,
Fourth-finger, (the weak one that has trouble standing alone): Pray for those in trouble or who are suffering,
Pinky-finger: Ask God to remind us of our smallness before Him. Ask that He would reveal His greatness and would supply things we need—spiritually, emotionally and physically--as only He can.
- Please pray for Faithe who broke her ankle. She needs somebody to take her to the doctor and shopping and stay with her son.
- Keep praying for Brittney—her return to the faith and her relationship with her Christian roommate.
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
