PRAISE GOD, OUR PROVIDER!

“So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.”                                                                  Genesis 50:21

“He provided redemption for His people; He ordained His covenant forever-holy and awesome is His name.”                                                                                                                                                                                                              Psalm 111:9

Lord, we give You thanks that we do not need to be afraid because You will provide, both physically and spiritually. Thanks for Your heart for the children.

PRAY FOR THANKFUL HEARTS

“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise, give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever, His faithfulness continues through all generations.”                          Psalm 100:4

“Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name, make known among the nations what He has done.”      I Chronicles 16:8

May the children of our city realize that You are the giver of good gifts. May they come to You with hearts of praise, experiencing Your love and faithfulness. Replace the attitude of entitlement with prayers of gratitude to You.

PRAY FOR HEARTS EAGER TO SHARE

“The man with two tunics should share with him who has none, and the one who has food should do the same.”                                                                                                                                                                                                             Luke 3:11

“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”             Hebrews 13:6

Jesus, we ask that You would create a culture of generosity in our city. As students’ eyes are opened to what You have given them, may they do good and be eager to share with others.

Please pray for the students and staff of Toledo Public Schools and their Superintendent, Dr. Romulus Durant.

“The prayer of intercession connects God and other people: it is one of the purest forms of service, the mightiest single power on earth. When we pray for others, we open the pipeline to both ends, and God flows through to bless those for whom we pray.”                                                                                                                                         Frank Laubach
