Prayer

As Elijah learned (1Kings 19: 11b-12) ‘the Lord was not in the wind … not in the earthquake … not in the fire.  After the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper.’   Let us intentionally draw aside this week to hear the gentle whisper of the Spirit of Christ and sense more clearly what God would have us hear, and not just what we believe and would have God endorse:
• about ourselves – as we ask Him to shape us to become more like the person, the people He created us to be
about our friends and family – those who we know best: ask Him to help us to serve, love and support them as Jesus would, and to bring the aroma of Jesus into their lives
• about our church – as we ask Him to show us where and how He is leading us, and the part we each have to play in His amazing plan
• about our community  – as we aim to understand and relate more closely with those in our immediate area, and increasingly share Jesus’ love and life with those we encounter
• about our region – as we seek to understand how we can stand with and support and encourage God’s regional family and together carry His restoration, love and hope into the lives of local residents
• about our nation – as we ask Him for godly wisdom for our leaders, for restored health and livelihoods across the country, and for renewed hope for all generations and types of people
• about our world – as we see the results of human selfishness, pride and greed in multiple arenas around the globe: ask God to share His heart for a particular situation or place, and guide you as you partner with Him in enabling His presence to be more widely acknowledged and accepted there

 ‘Not for us, Lord, not for us, but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.’
