That We May See You Face To Face

Night and day we pray earnestly for you, asking God to let us see you again to fill the gaps in your faith.
—1 Thessalonians 3:10 (NLT)

REFLECTION

Today’s Question: What do you most often pray for?

I Need You To Speak It

——Valerie Bridgeman Davis,
“I Need You to Speak It,” in The Africana Worship Book (Year C), edited by Valerie Bridgeman Davis and Safiyah Fosua (Discipleship Resources, 2008)

Saints whisper prayers
In night and morning hours
One on top of another, yearning
For face-to-face redemption
I need you—my sister, my brother—to speak it:
Restoration to my soul, and to my faith.

Prayer Of The Week:

Abba, Help us to see beyond ourselves,
and see you in ALL of the world.
It is because of your goodness and
in response to your grace
that I pray . . . Amen.

Scripture Highlight: 

Night and day we pray earnestly for you, asking God to let us see you again to fill the gaps in your faith.
—1 Thessalonians 3:10 (NLT)

As we pray most earnestly night and day that we may see you face to face and supply what is lacking in your faith?
—1 Thessalonians 2:10 (ESV)

PRAYERS

The Church (Body of Christ)

Lord God Grant us a fresh awakening and outpouring of Your Holy Spirit to be Your witnesses in this generation. Send us forth in the Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, bearing Your deep love with tears for the people – leaving a trail of seeds for sowing – that we may come home with shouts of joy, bringing our sheaves with us. Amen Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:8, Psalm 126:6 ESV

Justice & Truth

Lord, Psalm 89: 14 says, Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; steadfast love and faithfulness go before you. Embolden, empower by Your Spirit all who stand and act courageously for justice and righteousness in truth and mercy. Father, visit us as the early and latter rain and empower us as Your vessels of such. Amen.

BLC Community

God our Father, teach us to live as Your heirs and co-heirs in Christ. Heal those are who are hurting and unwell in our midst. Comfort, renew those who mourn. Grant Your wisdom and miraculous provision of all in view of inflation. And Your salvation for all family members and loved ones. In the name of Christ, Amen.

Nations

For the hearts of people to be turned back to the Lord. For foundations of nations to align with God’s values of love, justice, righteousness, mercy and truth.

Righteousness & Freedom

Holy Spirit lead us to build the foundations of our nation with the love of Your truth, justice, mercy, righteousness and humility. We ask for the Malaysia’s judiciary system to remain free and committed to establishing justice and truth for both the individual and the land.

LCM

Lord, empower Bishop Thomas & all LCM family to equip the people to be witnesses of Your light and salt for the harvest. Grant the OA Ministry’s workers and families for God’s protection, provision and wisdom for building a firm foundation in their lives, faith and future. Amen.

Intercession is always about the land. (c.f. Ezekiel 22:30) Suzette Hattingh
