Weekend Prayer Wall {May 5-6}

Prayer & Worship

Prayer should not be regarded “as a duty which must be performed, but rather as a privilege to be enjoyed, a rare delight that is always revealing some new beauty.”  E.M. Bounds

Our prayer must not be self-centered. It must arise not only because we feel our own need as a burden we must lay upon God, but also because we are so bound up in love for our fellow men that we feel their need as acutely as our own. To make intercession for men is the most powerful and practical way in which we can express our love for them.~John Calvin

The battle of prayer is against two things in the earthlies: wandering thoughts, and lack of intimacy with God’s character as revealed in His word. Neither can be cured at once, but they can be cured by discipline.~Oswald Chambers

I cry out to you, Lord: Come to me—quickly!
    Listen to my voice when I cry out to you!
Let my prayer stand before you like incense;
    let my uplifted hands be like the evening offering.
(Psalm 141:1-2, CEB)

Be glad in the Lord always! Again I say, be glad! 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. (Philippians 4:4-7, CEB)
May thy mercy be extended over all mankind,
bringing the ignorant to the knowledge of thy truth,
awakening the impenitent,
touching the hardened.
Look with compassion upon the afflicted of every condition,
assuage the pangs of disease,
comfort the broken in spirit.
(Jane Austen, 1775-1817)

Give us grace, almighty Father,
to address you with all our hearts as well as with our lips.
You are everywhere present:
from you no secrets can be hidden.
Teach us to fix our thoughts on you,
reverently and with love,
so that our prayers are not in vain,
but are acceptable to you,
now and always,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
(Jane Austen, 1775-1817)
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!
