Faith

Morning Meditation Psalm: Psalm 51
Song: “O Great God”

Faith for Change

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:17-18)

Pray for….

-God to give us faith to take steps toward change
-Our attitudes and behaviors would be transformed and renewed by the Gospel
-We would live a life characterized by repentance and faith
-That we would be experiencing increased freedom in our lives
-That we would be “beholding the glory of the Lord” — seeking God by His Word and through prayer
-Covenant Group ministry would be a means for accomplishing lasting change
-That we would be a community of “people in need of change helping people in need of change”

Faith in Trials

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him” (James 1:1-5)

Pray for….

-Strengthening of faith for all in the church who are suffering
-God to heal those who are physically afflicted
-Comfort for those who are mourning
-Depressed to sense the nearness of the Lord
-God to give faith to the church to pray for healing
-Restoration of broken relationships that have caused pain
-Peace and trust for those who are questioning “Why?”
-We would be a church filled with people who are steadfast under trial, who hope in God, who love Jesus more than our own lives or comfort, and who are a witness to the world in our suffering.
