Praise our Almighty God!

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who was, and who is and who is to come, the Almighty.”           Revelation 1:8

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.”                                                                             Isaiah 6:3

Lord, we lift our hearts in praise to You as this new year begins. You are the Almighty, the One having complete power. You are the One who was, who is and who is to come, the holy one.

Pray for Hearts to Begin Anew

“And I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”  Ezekiel 36:26

“And He who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.”                                                              Revelation 21:5

Jesus, we invite You to make all things new in 2019; spiritually, emotionally, relationally, academically. Remove the things that harden the hearts of the students and staff, creating new, tender hearts toward You and others.

We pray for the students and staff of Owatonna, Minnesota Public Schools and their Superintendent, Mr. Jeff Elsdad.

“True prayer is a way of life, not just for use in cases of emergency. Make it a habit, and when the need arises you will be in practice.”              -Billy Graham, American Evangelist, 1918-2018.
