Heart of Gratitude

Well, well, well, God is great. Prayer Meeting was a blast. People were in purpose. They could not wait on their turn to pray. What a blessing?

Andrea Randolph thanks for your leadership, and for the word Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.”

Walk in the fullness of his love, think pure, surround yourself with Godly positive people, and begin to live in the overflow, change the way you think if it is not according to Philippians 4:8. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things”. Focus on Jesus and leave the outcome of your prayers to him.

We are looking forward to you joining soon. Start your day with prayer. Be grateful for all is blessings. Look back over your life and find the top ten reasons for your joy. Write them down, share with a friend, post on your page and give God the Glory…

Father I thank you for waking me up today, I thank you that I am clothes in my right mind. I thank you for food on my table and shoes on my feet. I thank you for my family and my friends. I thank you that I have a job. I thank you for my car. I thank you that I can come to you and pray. I thank you for my health.  Lord, I could go on and on and the more I find things to be grateful for is the more I recognize that I am blessed beyond measures.

Lord please continue to change me from the inside out.

What Does He Want From Us? – by Olayemi Eric Ogunbase

Roman 9:21 “A potter has the right to do whatever he wants with his clay. He can make something for a special occasion or something for everyday use from the same lump of clay.”

The gospel says that we, who are God‘s beloved, created a cosmic crisis. It says we, too, were stolen from our True Love and that he launched the greatest campaign in the history of the world to get us back. God created us for intimacy with him. When we turned our back on him he promised to come for us.
He sent personal messengers; he used beauty and affliction to recapture our hearts. After all else failed, he conceived the most daring of plans. Under the cover of night he stole into the enemy’s camp incognito, the Ancient of Days disguised as a newborn. The Incarnation, as Phil Yancey reminds us, was a daring raid into enemy territory. The whole world lay under the power of the evil one and we were held in the dungeons of darkness.
God risked it all to rescue-us. Why? What is it that he sees in us that causes him to act the jealous lover, to lay siege both on the kingdom of darkness and on our own idolatrous as if on Troy-not to annihilate, but to win us once again for himself? This fierce intention, this reckless ambition that shoves all conventions aside, willing literally to move heaven and earth-We’ve been offered many explanations.
From one religious camp we’re told that what God wants is obedience, or sacrifice, or adherence to the right doctrines, or morality. Those are the answers offered by conservative churches. The more therapeutic churches suggest that no, God is after our contentment, or happiness, or self-actualization, or something else along those lines. He is concerned about all these things, of course, but they are not his primary concern.
What he is after is us-our laughter, our tears, our dreams, our fears, our heart of hearts. Remember his lament in Isaiah, that though his people were performing all their duties, “their hearts are far from me” (29:13 italics added). How few of us truly believe this. We’ve never been wanted for our heart, our truest self, not really, not for long. The thought that God wants our heart seems too good to be true.

A Quick Work in Rigtheousness-by Alan MacPhee

Isaiah 41:10 fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Alan called into the prayer line at 856-433-8104/1-888-939-5837 regarding his mother Marion Calcutti, who is seriously ill. She has severe cancer and it has affected her lungs and is spreading over her body.  The doctor has given her days to live. With God all things are possible and even though it seems impossible God is able. Please help me pray for his mother complete healing.
Can someone who knows how to intercede help me pray for this man’s mother? His heart is broken and he is devastated.

Standing on His Promises by K Brown-Froling

Isaiah 40:29-31 He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

I just prayed with my co-worker but I need you to stand in prayer this moment for her and her family.

1. She is going through a divorce which is putting a toll on her

2. She just got a call that her nephew (4 years) was just diagnosed with a neuroblastoma; they admitted him at the hospital to undergo treatment. They are doing a blood transfusion this moment. The tumor is a size of a small ball resting on his spine and spots on his hip bones, kidney and lungs. He has several tests scheduled for today.
3. She got a call today that her to be husband’s dad who drivers a trailer truck ran off the road; they had to cut him out and he is in the hospital under critical condition. During the procedure they found cancer in his lung and elsewhere.

There was just so much bad news coming her way in less that 24 hours. Her mom too was in an accident last week where her car ran off the road and into a ditch. She is OK now and at home resting.

I really need prayers to go up to Abba Father on her and her family behalf. She is trying to be strong but its getting real bad where its affecting her work.

Please go with me to to the throne on their behalf. I told her that our God is an awesome God and nothing is too big for Him to do and he still specializes in miracles. She started to cry and we held hands and prayed.

Community Prayer

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless. –Isaiah 40:28-29 (NRSV)

Heavenly Father, I thank You that You made Yourself known to man. I thank You that You are our LORD, the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. I thank You, Lord, that You do not ever grow faint or become weary. I thank You that You are not in need of a counselor, for Your understanding is unsearchable.

Heavenly Father, I come before You today and ask that You would give power to those who are weak and faint in my community. I pray, Lord Jesus, that You would strengthen the powerless and lead them in the way everlasting. I thank You in advance for these things. In Jesus’ Name I pray, amen!
