PRAISE OUR GOD OF HOPE!

“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him.”                                                                            Psalm 62:5

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”                                                                                                                                             Romans 15:13

 

Lord, we lift our hearts to You and away from discouragement and despair, for You are the God of hope. We give You praise regardless of what our physical eyes may see, for the end of the story has not yet been written. We trust You and will rest in You alone.

 

PRAY FOR HEARTS THAT ARE WILLING TO SERVE

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as You have said.”                                                     Luke 1:38

“And now, O Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart…”                                                                      Deuteronomy 10:12

 

God, would You be raising up a generation who fears You, walks in all Your ways, loves You and serves You with all their heart. May they be completely surrendered to You and offer their hearts in daily obedience to You.

 

PRAY FOR HEARTS THAT FLEE TEMPTATION

“Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”                                                                                                                                                      II Timothy 2:2

 

“Flee from sexual immorality.”                                                                                                                            I Corinthians 6:18

I lift ____________up to You in prayer. May she recognize the strategies of the enemy to steal, kill and destroy and flee from the evil desires of youth. In the heat of the battle I pray that _________ will take the way of escape that You provide, pursuing You with others whose hearts You have purified. By faith I celebrate the victories You will bring.

 

Please pray for the students and staff of Rossford Schools and their superintendent, Dan Creps.

 

“No heart thrives without much secret converse with God and nothing will make amends for the want of it.”                                                                                                                                                                                                           -John Berridge
