Prayer (Wednesday)

Greetings, everyone.
Today (Wednesday) we ask that all who can join us in prayer at the church at 6 p.m. for one hour. Thank you to all of you who came out to pray yesterday - it was nothing short of powerful! The Lord graciously met us and blessed us who gathered with His presence and peace.
Today, our focus in prayer is for the leaders of our church - Stewards, Trustees, Class Leaders, the staff (ministerial and lay), and presidents of all ministries of the church. As you pray today, call each leader out by his or her name to God in prayer. They need our strength and our support in prayer.
Please consider these passages of Scripture as you lift up our leaders in prayer:

"Hezekiah did this throughout all Judah; he did what was good and right and faithful before the Lord his God. And every work that he undertook in the service of the house of God, and in accordance with the law and the commandments, to seek his God, he did with all his heart; and he prospered" (2 Chronicles 31:20-21).


"Do not, O Lord, withhold your mercies from me; let your steadfast love and faithfulness keep me safe forever" (Psalm 40:11).


"O send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and your dwelling" (Psalm 43:3).


"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths" (Proverbs 3:5-6).


"You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you" (Isaiah 26:3).


"And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him" (Colossians 3:17).


"If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you" (James 1:5).


Thank you,

Pastor Kenneth Q. James
Psalm 119:33-34

"Let truth, the light of my heart, speak to me, and not my own darkness!"
Augustine, Confessions, Book XII, Chapter 10
