PRAISE GOD, OUR CREATOR!
“For by Him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or powers or rulers or authorities, all things were created by Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16
Lord, You are our great creator! You brought all things into being through Your word-things in heaven and on earth, things we can see and things in the spiritual realm that we cannot see. We lift our hearts to You in deepest praise, for You are above all. Everything was created by and for You.
PRAY FOR HEARTS THAT TURN TO GOD
“May He turn our hearts to Him, to walk in all His ways and to keep the commands, decrees and regulations He gave our fathers.” I Kings 8:58
Jesus, we pray that You will have Your way in our hearts and across our city. May we walk in Your ways, keeping the commands, decrees and regulations You have established. Thanks that as our hearts turn to You and away from our selfishness, we will experience new freedom and joy!
PRAY FOR HEARTS THAT HONOR GOD
“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.”
I Corinthians 6:19,20
May _________offer her body to You as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to You. Protect her mind and body from the plans of the enemy for destruction. Instead, may _________experience Your goodness, obeying the Holy Spirit, and honoring You with her body.
“Rudeness is far too weak a word to use for a failure to directly address your Maker, Sustainer and Redeemer, to whom you owe your every breath.” -Timothy Keller
Please pray for the students and staff of Maumee City Schools and their superintendent, Greg Smith.
