PRAISE OUR GOD OF GRACE!

 

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.”

Titus 2:11

 

“…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.                                                                                                     Romans 3:22,23

 

God, we praise You for Your grace! Instead of treating us according to our sin, You offer salvation, forgiveness and redemption through the sacrifice of Jesus! There is nothing we can do to earn Your favor, no way we can be good enough to earn salvation. Praise comes from the depths of our hearts to Your throne.

 

PRAY FOR CONFIDENT HEARTS

 

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him.”

Jeremiah 7:17

 

“Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.”

Proverbs 3:25,26

 

May the children of our city have hearts full of trust and confidence in You. You promise that they do not need to fear because You will keep their foot from being snared. May they experience You and Your word in practical, tangible ways so that their confidence will grow.

 

 

PRAY FOR TRUSTWORTHY HEARTS

 

“A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret.”

Proverbs 11:13

 

“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.”                                                                                                 Luke 16:10

 

I pray that ____________will be trustworthy in both word and deed. As her character grows to reflect You I ask that she would be trusted with much to make a powerful impact in our city.

 

Please pray for the students and teachers of Oregon Schools and their superintendent, Hal Gregory.
