Prayer Summary for January 11

Scripture Focus…

(1-10) “Companions as we are in this work with you, we beg you, please don’t squander one bit of this marvelous life God has given us. God reminds us,

I heard your call in the nick of time;
The day you needed me, I was there to help.

Well, now is the right time to listen, the day to be helped. Don’t put it off; don’t frustrate God’s work by showing up late, throwing a question mark over everything we’re doing. Our work as God’s servants gets validated-or not-in the details. People are watching us as we stay at our post, alertly, unswervingly . . . in hard times, tough times, bad times; when we’re beaten up, jailed, and mobbed; working hard, working late, working without eating; with pure heart, clear head, steady hand; in gentleness, holiness, and honest love; when we’re telling the truth, and when God’s showing his power; when we’re doing our best setting things right; when we’re praised, and when we’re blamed; slandered, and honored; true to our word, though distrusted; ignored by the world, but recognized by God; terrifically alive, though rumored to be dead; beaten within an inch of our lives, but refusing to die; immersed in tears, yet always filled with deep joy; living on handouts, yet enriching many; having nothing, having it all.”

(11-13) “Dear, dear Corinthians, I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life. We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively!”

(14-18) “Don’t become partners with those who reject God. How can you make a partnership out of right and wrong? That’s not partnership; that’s war. Is light best friends with dark? Does Christ go strolling with the Devil? Do trust and mistrust hold hands? Who would think of setting up pagan idols in God’s holy Temple? But that is exactly what we are, each of us a temple in whom God lives. God himself put it this way:

“I’ll live in them, move into them;
I’ll be their God and they’ll be my people.
So leave the corruption and compromise;
leave it for good,” says God.
“Don’t link up with those who will pollute you.
I want you all for myself.
I’ll be a Father to you;
you’ll be sons and daughters to me.”
The Word of the Master, God.”

(2 Cor. 6 The Message)

Prayed…

Father, we know we cannot do anything in our own strength
Where would we be without You-lost in a dying place
Thank You for causing other people to pray for us
We pray for men and women who have slid out into deception
Those listening to doubt and fear-we call them in today!
We pray back in those who have left their first love
Angels we send you out!
Calling for laborers to cross their paths and speak a word in season
Declaring a full restoration of those who have left
Praying over the hearts-that they would be opened and softened
Grabbing hold of them by faith and calling them into their places
Looking for a great revelation to come upon them
So they would know they can come back to Father’s house!
Let there be a clean slate!
Father, cleanse their hearts and minds from fear and condemnation
Touch and speak to them, Lord!
Raise them up and give them strength to obey
We are looking for the seal of the blood of the Lamb to mark them
Satan, we hold the blood against you!
Praying for the children, youth, and young adults
Their future has been prepared!
We call them out and free!
Spirit of deception and offense-GET OUT in Jesus’ name!
Eyes to see it for what it is!
Lord, Your Spirit is calling
Speaking forth clean hearts free of void
Father, we lift the body of Christ
Give them wisdom to receive the lost with love
Make it a nest of love!
Devil, we bind you in the church!
Any foul spirit, be gone in Jesus’ name!
Church-arise and step into your place
Your love brings us through!
Father, the work You have started in them You will bring it to completion
Lord, we lift up the teachers and all who are in authority over our precious ones
For them to yield to You and give room for Your Spirit to rule
Touch and burn within the young generation!
Let there be many encounters with You
Wisdom from above!
That they would find You in the Church!
Nothing of the world would pull them away, because they know You!
Let this place of seeking You be a priority place!
Thank You so much for Your presence!
We purpose to recognize, yield, and respect it!
