Week of Prayer Day 5

If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.
2 Chronicles 7:13‭-‬15 NASB

🌹Hear from heaven, God of all creation, our humble prayer of repentance. Forgive us our sin and wicked ways as we seek Your face.  Heal our land Lord God. Be attentive to our prayers being offered up to You today. For Your glory and kingdom cause. Amen.

Week of Prayer Day 4

‘If they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their forefathers, in their unfaithfulness which they committed against Me, and also in their acting with hostility against Me—
I also was acting with hostility against them, to bring them into the land of their enemies—or if their uncircumcised heart becomes humbled so that they then make amends for their iniquity, then I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and I will remember also My covenant with Isaac, and My covenant with Abraham as well, and
I will remember the land.
Leviticus 26:40‭-‬42 NASB

🌹 Oh God, turn the hearts of Your people back to You so You may bless our nation with Your righteousness. Forgive us our unfaithfulness and acts of hostility toward You and Your word. As we humble ourselves before You,  remember Your covenant through Jesus, our Savior, and forgive us.

Week of Prayer Day 3

Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.
O sons of men, how long will my honor become a reproach? How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? Selah.
But know that the Lord has set apart the godly man for Himself; The Lord hears when I call to Him.
Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still.        Selah.
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the Lord. Many are saying, “Who will show us any good?”
Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord! You have put gladness in my heart, More than when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.        
Psalms 4:1‭-‬8 NASB

🌹Thank You, God. Amen.

Week of Prayer Day 2

Blessed be the Lord, Because He has heard the voice of my supplication.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him.
The Lord is their strength, And He is a saving defense to His anointed.
Save Your people and bless Your inheritance; Be their shepherd also, and carry them forever.                          
Psalms 28:6‭-‬9 NASB

🌹All for Your glory! Amen.

Week of Prayer Day 1

As the National Day of Prayer approaches on May 6, the next 5 days of devotions will be prayers.

To You, O Lord, I call; My rock, do not be deaf to me, For if You are silent to me, I will become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You for help, When I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.
Do not drag me away with the wicked And with those who work iniquity, Who speak peace with their neighbors, While evil is in their hearts. Requite them according to their work and according to the evil of their practices; Requite them according to the deeds of their hands; Repay them their recompense. Because they do not regard the works of the Lord Nor the deeds of His hands, He will tear them down and not build them up.              
Psalms 28:1‭-‬5 NASB

🌹 May we regard Your word diligently, applying it to our lives in obedience, praying for our neighbors and others around us to seek You while praising you for the work, You Lord God, are doing. In Jesus name, amen.

Continually Seeking Him,

Sharon
