We had a small but wonderful meeting earlier this evening in the Auditorium at Lighthouse Christian Fellowship. We met for a time of Kingdom Prayer for our community and to hear God’s Word be read and taught. No flash, it didn’t take a ton of cash to put it on, it was real simple, and God met us there. Here are some take homes for this week.
Kingdom Prayer Focus
Some things to consider this week as we pray for God’s Kingdom to come into our Community.
In Antioch there is:
Extensive Gang Activity Sex Trafficking
Epidemic of Fatherlessness 40% of our area on W.I.C.
Failing School System Notable rise of Buddhism
Praying the Psalms Together
“A Psalm that we cannot utter as a prayer, that makes us falter and horrifies us, is a hint to us that here Someone else is praying, not we……….the Man Jesus Christ………..is praying in the Psalter through the mouth of His Church. The Psalter is the Prayer Book of Jesus Christ in the truest sense of the word. He prayed the Psalter and now it has become His prayer for all time.”
~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer ~
Simply lift this Psalm, word for word, as a community prayer this week during you daily quiet times, or whenever it comes to mind to do so. A good practice would be to write it on a note card and place it in your car, or if your a techno junkie put it in your smart phone or ipod for easy access.
