Congregational and Pastoral Prayer - 6 July 2014 AM and PM
O God, you are infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in your being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth (Westminster Shorter Catechism # 4); look upon this nation with your favor, and restore to us, once again, the self-evident truth that our liberties are inalienable rights bestowed by you, our Creator; and by your aid, stir up our hearts to see how far we have strayed from your way of righteousness, that we may return to you (the Declaration of Independence). O Lord, hear our prayer.
Lord God, hear our prayer for your Church world-over; Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church; Bethlehem Star Baptist Church; Beverly Hills Baptist; Bread of Life Baptist; and Britton Baptist; as well as our Denomination’s Chaplains – Thomas Eddy; Bill Manning; Brendon O'Dowd; Samuel Rico; Mark Winton; John Sackett; and Scott Cauble. In accord with your promise, let no weapon that is fashioned against them succeed, and in righteousness and charity may they refute every tongue that rises against them in judgment. And may they find that their heritage and their vindication are from you, LORD God. (Isaiah 54.17). O Lord, hear our prayer.
Our Father, we pray for Txxxx as she works and toils with the brothers and sisters of Sacred Road ministry, and with the kids she works with. Help her and the others to gain the trust of the kids, and their hearing. Keep her healthy and safe, and conduct her with godly wisdom that she will be able to guide those kids to Christ, and escort them through resolving conflicts. May her work result in far more good than she can imagine or dream. O Lord, hear our prayer.
