Weekly Prayer 07.30.18

Psalm 46:1-11 ESV
1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.
6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, how he has brought desolations on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the chariots with fire.
10 "Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!"
11 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
Almighty God, our Father,
You are my refuge -- You will keep me from whatever would destroy me.
You are my strength -- You will walk with me and carry me through whatever will refine me.
You are very present -- You are not a bystander. You are here. Every second. All Your attention. With a plan and purpose.
Help -- You are my counselor, my protector, my guide, my Father. You do not throw me in the deep end and watch to see if I figure it out for myself. You lead and guide me, counsel me and care for me. You are so personal!
Therefore, I will not fear -- You are God over medical tests; complex relationships; difficult employers; financial issues; weather forecasts; church politics; governments. You are the Lord of Hosts. You are the Sovereign of all creation. You. are. GOD.
And You. are. with. me. So, I can be still, cease striving. stop worrying. You, the Lord of Hosts, with all the armies of heaven at Your disposal; You, who is Sovereign over weather, and governments, and people and things -- You are with me. You are my fortress.
You are my refuge and strength. A very present help in trouble . . .
amen 
This week please remember to pray for our brothers and sisters in Turkey. Pastor Andrew Brunson has been much in the news recently because of his imprisonment, impending trial, house arrest. There are so many others who are enduring hardship, imprisonment, conflict and scorn. Pray also for the captors and the government. Pray for their salvation.

Psalm 112:1-10 ESV
1  Praise the LORD! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments! 
2 His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. 
3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever. 
4 Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; he is gracious, merciful, and righteous. 
5 It is well with the man who deals generously and lends; who conducts his affairs with justice. 
6 For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered forever. 
7 He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD. 
8 His heart is steady; he will not be afraid, until he looks in triumph on his adversaries. 
9 He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn is exalted in honor. 
10 The wicked man sees it and is angry; he gnashes his teeth and melts away; the desire of the wicked will perish! 
 
Almighty God, my Father,
You are God. You are Sovereign. You are holy and good and just. You are everything, and You are worthy of praise. 
Lord, I need to begin my day with praise to You. Knowing that You are God sets everything else in perspective. 
I can leave my concerns in Your sovereign hands.
I can trust You with my fears.
I can trust You with the lives and welfare of my children and grandchildren.
I can think of others and their needs because You know and care for all of my needs.
You are my God. You are my Father. I am Yours.
Amen
 
This week please remember our brothers and sisters in Tunisia, who are so often isolated and without gospel community.
