Show Notes

Someone today has had their very foundation shaken. It is as if a giant earthquake has uprooted all that is safe and secure and familiar in your life. You are left quaking and wondering how you will make it through this time.

The answer to that is that we know the One who gives us His strong shoulders to lean on:

“Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him, for He shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between His shoulders.” Deuteronomy 33:12

We have all been shaken at some point in our lives. Let us pray together through this time. Click on the arrow below to pray.

Today we’re praying about our thoughts. Our thoughts can affect us for the good or for the bad — it’s really true that we become what we think. The good news is that we don’t have to let ourselves become victims of negative thinking. We have TOTAL control over our thoughts. Join us today as we take 4 minutes to pray about “thinking on such things.”

Today we’re praying for relationships. In His word, God makes it clear how important it is to maintain unity when possible. With so many fractured family relationships, let’s take the offensive and start praying for God to restore and heal relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, siblings, friends, and the workplace.

 




National Day of Prayer: What Are You Praying For?

ID-100145358   In His name the nations will put their hope. Matthew 12:21

Thursday, May 2, is the National Day of Prayer. Let’s all join together in praying for our nation. The theme this year is Pray For America. Here are two websites for you to access for prayer events to participate in.

National Day of Prayer

One Cry Radio Summit and Unite Event

We’re never at a loss for things to pray about for our country, are we? It’s especially true this year given some of the recent tragic events we’ve watched unfold in our country and around the world. Whether your church is holding an event, you’re going to tune in to the national podcast, or you’ll be praying at home, I’d love to hear what some of the requests are that you’ll be interceding for this year. What issues are on your hearts and minds that you’ll be praying about?

This is an important reminder for us to pray not only for our friends and families every day, but also for our country. Feel free to leave your requests/prayers below, and add to the list as God lays more requests on your heart.

Pray on!

What Is an Intercessor?

Have you ever wanted to stop praying for a person or situation because it seemed futile?

I’ve been there and was actually feeling a bit discouraged today when I stumbled across this video on intercession. I was so inspired by its message that I had to share it with you.

This video uses the scripture from Ezekiel 22:30  as a basis for its message: “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.”

When we pray for others or for a situation, we are standing in the gap between that person or that situation and God. Can you see the importance of plugging that gap with your prayers? It is of such importance that God was going to use the prayers of ONE man to not destroy a land, but he could find no one praying. How sad is that!

What gaps are you plugging today? Who are you holding up in mercy before Jesus? What situation are you interceding for in your family, your neighborhood, your country, the world?

After watching this, I am encouraged to keep on praying for those people and situations that seem hopeless. I see how the prayers of one man, woman, or child can make a difference. Watch the video. Keep on praying.

Pray on!
