"Arise, O LORD" - 7 June 2015 PM
Arise, O LORD, and let your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate you flee before You (Numbers 10.35). We pray for Your Church throughout the nations, for Britton Christian Church; Crown Heights Christian; Del City Christian; East 6th St. Christian; and Edmond Trinity Christian Church: That you would kindly smile upon them and prosper their work that is being done for your honor, for Christ’s reign, and according to your will. Fill them with your Holy Spirit; guide them along your ways of truth and righteousness; and deliver them from the evil one. O Lord, hear our prayer.
Be with us in this congregation, Good Lord, and help us to count it all joy when we fall into various trials, so that as our faith is being tested it might be strengthened, and patient endurance would grow large, and we would, one-and-all, increase in godly maturity. Assist us in becoming makers of disciples of Christ, adding to our number such as are being saved. And go before our team as we head to Carnegie, paving the way and prospering the work. O Lord, hear our prayer.
We call out to you the names of people we know who need to repent of their sins and believe in Christ, as well as those who have strayed away and need to be restored, and those whose faith is shaken…. Lord God, bring them with penitent hearts and steadfast faith, to embrace and hold fast to your Son, Jesus Christ; to the unchangeable truth of your word; and into the fellowship of your church. O Lord, hear our prayer.
O Lord God, we pray for our nation, that you would lead our leaders and govern our governors so that they would walk wisely, defeat evil, and advance true justice for all – born and unborn. We pray for Edmond, Putnam City, and Oklahoma City, that you would steer our mayors and city councils in ways that would be honorable and beneficial for all the citizens of our cities. O Lord, hear our prayer.
Hear us, O Lord, for we desire your leadership over the nations of this world. Please bring under control the warring factions and chaotic turmoil plaguing many countries, and restore peace and wholesome order. O Lord, hear our prayer.
We intercede on behalf of those who are troubled and beleaguered by physical, financial, emotional and spiritual distresses….those recovering from birth…those presently pregnant…Have mercy on them all, lift their spirits, and grant them health. O Lord, hear our prayer.
“Return, O LORD, to the ten thousand thousands of Israel” (Numbers 10.36).
