United By Prayer Wall
PRAYING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY
We try to fulfill God's call in our lives, but discover that circumstances appear to contradict our expectations, and we start to question God's character, God's concern, and God's care for us, so we start to murmur and ask, "Why?"
But only as we look away from ourselves, our problems, and our own limited perspectives, and call to mind the greater reality of His loving-mercies, deep-compassion, and long-suffering, do we recognize the steadfast love of the Lord which never ceases.
Only as we turn our eyes away from our own disappointments and look to His wider purpose and plan, do we discover that His mercies never come to an end, for they are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness.
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, how we praise and thank You that you are a gracious and loving God. Help us not to be influenced by the circumstances of our lives, but rather help us to keep the eyes of our hearts on You, knowing that Your plans and purposes are perfect. Thank You, Father, for Your steadfast love toward all Your children which is new every morning. All glory to Your holy name, AMEN.
Although we all have an assurance that the Lord knew each one of us before we were born and has scheduled each day of our lives, very few prophets were consecrated by God before they were born and appointed to be a prophet to the nations.
Jeremiah did not aspire to become a prophet or attend a school of prophets to learn the skills of 'profiteering' as is the case with many false prophets. He was not a prophet because of his ancestry nor did he receive it as an honorary entitlement.
Jeremiah may have been divinely chosen and empowered by God for his prophetic ministry, but he was a man who was humanly hesitant and reluctant to take up this God-ordained role... and he was a man who had to endure much hardship during his ministry because of his God-ordained position.
Just as God had a call on Jeremiah's life, He has a call on the life of all who trust in Christ by faith, and God can use anyone in the furtherance of his redemptive plan if we are willing to submit to Him and be used by Him.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for the reminder in Jeremiah that you formed each one of us in the womb and thank You that You have scheduled every day of our lives. Thank You for the example of Jeremiah the prophet who was willing to suffer hardship, loneliness, pain, and rejection for the furtherance of Your will and to pen portions of holy Scripture for our learning. We pray that from this day forward, our lives may be dedicated to You and that You would use us to fulfil Your will in our lives, for Your greater praise and glory. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
The Light of which Isaiah prophesied was to be so brilliant that it was to embrace every man, woman, and child, born into this world. It was to be a Light that extended back to a time before the worlds were made - and it was to be a glittering Light that reached forward into the farthest extremities and widest dimensions of the eternal ages to come. It was to be a Light that would blaze its illuminating rays throughout this shrouded world.. and the dark blackness that envelops the world would never overcome it.
No surprise that His Name is called Wonderful Counsellor, for His deep love fills angels and men with awe-struck admiration. His wise counsel generates stunned amazement. Who but the Mighty God of love and justice, could have imagined that the shame and humiliation of the Cross would result in the shattering forever of hell's deep darkness and it's terrifying eternal damnation.
The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.
Our United Prayer:
Thank You, Father, for sending Jesus as the Light of the world to enlighten everyone coming into the world. Thank You that in Him is the light of the glorious gospel of grace that can never be quenched by the darkness of this world. We praise and thank You that His Light has came into our lives and enlivened our spirits and enlightened our souls. Open our eyes more and more to see Jesus and to grow more like Him. Give us greater understanding of all that You have achieved in our lives, for without You we would remain in darkness and dead in our sins. Thank You for Your great salvation, to You be all praise and glory forever. In the name of Jesus we pray, AMEN.
From start to finish, the book of Ecclesiastes declares the utter futility and complete meaninglessness of life without God. Whether it is referring to work or pleasure, wisdom or wealth, power or prestige, entertainment or virility, life or death, ALL is considered futile and worthless when God is excluded from the equation.
HOWEVER, there is one verse that identifies the meaning and purpose of life: "When all has been heard, the conclusion of the matter under consideration is: fear God and keep His commands, for this is the whole duty of all mankind."
“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.”
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for this honest assessment of living life in this fallen world, without Christ. Keep us from chasing after any of the vain things that this world offers, knowing that there is nothing on earth that has lasting value except to know You. May we place You in the center of our lives, knowing that the whole duty and delight of all is to worship and praise You for Your goodness and grace to all people. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Today, we are flooded with worldly wisdom and swamped with knowledge and instruction from every section of humanity, but unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain to build it.
How important to trust in the LORD with all our heart, to acknowledge Him in all our ways, and not to lean on our own understanding, to do so demonstrates a prideful respect for self and not a reverential fear of the Lord.
Jesus is the foundation upon which our knowledge is founded, and He alone commands our reverential fear, humble worship, and eternal devotion, in Him are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, when we are positioned in Him.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us and convicting us of sin, righteousness, and judgement, and thank You that by faith in Christ we have been brought into Your kingdom and placed into His Body. To You alone belongs our reverential fear, humble worship, and eternal devotion, through time and into eternity. In Jesus' name we pray, AMEN.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
