Weekend Prayer Wall {Feb. 25-26}

Weekend Prayer Wall {Feb. 25-26}

Oh, how few find time for prayer! There is time for everything else, time to sleep and time to eat, time to read the newspaper and the novel, time to visit friends, time for everything else under the sun, but – no time for prayer, the most important of all things, the one great essential! ~Oswald J. SmithTo be much for God, we must be much with God. Jesus, that lone figure in the wilderness, knew strong crying, along with tears. Can one be moved with compassion and not know tears? Jeremiah was a sobbing saint. Jesus wept! So did Paul. So did John…Though there are some tearful intercessors behind the scenes, I grant you that to our modern Christianity, praying is foreign. ~Leonard Ravenhill

[Jesus] is strong…but He’s also approachable. He is able to carry our load…but He’ll never make us feel embarrassed or defeated for asking. ~Joni Eareckson Tada

Offer prayers and petitions in the Spirit all the time. Stay alert by hanging in there and praying for all believers. (Eph. 6:18, CEB)

Let your gentleness show in your treatment of all people. The Lord is near. Don’t be anxious about anything; rather bring up all of your requests to God in your prayers and petitions, along with giving thanks. Then the peace of God that exceeds all understanding will keep your hearts and minds safe in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4: 5-7, CEB)
Jesus, Our Master,
meet us wile we walk in the way,
and long to reach the heavenly country;
so that, following your light
we may keep the way of righteousness,
and never wander away into darkness of this world’s night,
while you, who are the Way, the Truth, and the Life,
are shining within us;
for your own name’s sake.
~Mozarabic prayer

Lord Jesus, our Savior,
let us now come to you:
Our hearts are cold;
Lord, warm them with your selfless love.
Our hearts are sinful;
cleanse them with your precious blood.
Our hearts are weak;
strengthen them with your joyous Spirit.
Our hearts are empty;
fill them with your divine presence.
Lord Jesus, our hearts are yours;
possess them always and only for yourself.
~ Augustine (354-430)

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, let’s pray in Jesus’ name! Now it’s time for you to jump in with your prayers/prayer requests in the comment section (or link up your prayer post!). Let’s also pray for each other! Someone will pray for you/with you. (Because this is a global prayer wall, sometimes – due to the time differences – prayers are not instant. But know that God hears you 24/7! BLESSINGS!

  3. Please join with me tomorrow (Monday, Feb. 27, 2012) as I join the Italians in praying for their country and for the campus ministry work there. From 06.00-09.00 CET (Central European Time, Italy’s time zone), they’ll be praying specifically for identity and for the Italian students to find their identity in Christ. They haven’t announced the other prayer focuses yet, but they’re calling the day “15 hours for students: Hope in the midst of uncertainty”. Please join your prayers to ours! Thank you in advance.

      6:00 – 9:00 Students’ identity

  4. Lord, we rejoice in your goodness and mercy. Thank you for your patient endurance in teaching us, helping us, and shaping us to become more like you. Thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit, who continually points us to Jesus and reminds us of the work that He accomplished on the cross. Thank you for accepting us and freeing us because of who Jesus is and what He did; we’re so grateful that our salvation and freedom in Christ doesn’t depend on who we are or what we’ve done! Thank you for the gift of joy in the midst of suffering and pain, for faithful friends with whom to share the journey, and for rest and peace in you. We love you so much and we give all the praise and glory back to you. In Jesus’ life-giving and sustaining name we pray. Amen.

  5. Lord, we continue to pray for Joshua and his mother. Grant them both grace, mercy, and wisdom in their interactions with each other. We ask that Joshua would experience your pursuing love and that he would be transformed by an encounter with you, the Living God. Reveal Yourself to him and show him who You really are. Open his eyes, ears, heart, and mind to see You, know You, and love You for who You really are. Grant his mother patient endurance, faithfulness in prayer, and an overflowing spirit of love and grace toward her son. We continue to lift them and their situation up to You in prayer and we long for the day when Joshua returns to You. Come quickly, Lord; do not delay, we pray. In Jesus’ name and for His sake, we pray. Amen.
