Prayer Time - October 29, 2013

Lord, we need a fresh Word from You. Please quiet our souls as we approach You in prayer. Help us to hear Your voice as we pray these scriptures to lay foundations in our prayers today... 
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

John 14:26 NIV

Lord, we thank You that You have sent the Holy Spirit to us, to remind us of everything You have said to us. Thank You that your character is to be FOR us, to assist us and help us fulfill Your will in our lives today. Work in us, and teach us to pray...
Likewise, when you pray, do not be as hypocrites who love to pray loudly at synagogue or on street corners—their concern is to be seen by men. They have already earned their reward. When you pray, go into a private room, close the door, and pray unseen to your Father who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not go on and on, excessively and strangely like the outsiders; they think their verbosity will let them be heard by their deities. Do not be like them. Your prayers need not be labored or lengthy or grandiose—for your Father knows what you need before you ever ask Him.
Your prayers, rather, should be simple, like this:
    Our Father in heaven,
        let Your name remain holy.
     Bring about Your kingdom.
    Manifest Your will here on earth,
        as it is manifest in heaven.
     Give us each day that day’s bread—no more, no less—
     And forgive us our debts
        as we forgive those who owe us something.
     Lead us not into temptation,
        but deliver us from evil.
    [But let Your kingdom be,
        and let it be powerful
        and glorious forever. Amen.]
For those led to pray for missions, please pray as the Team Expansion Prayer Force prompted us today: 

Any worker in any country or with any organization
Pray for a strong relationship between that worker and team members.

Breaking Strongholds
Pray that souls held captive by fear may experience God’s liberating grace among the people of Ancona and Verona, Italy; Bangkok, Thailand; Dublin, Ireland; Krakow, Poland; and Tokyo, Japan... or any city/country that you would like to pray for. Imagine if we each prayed this for each city that we live in! 

Please feel free to leave your prayer requests below in the comments section... also feel free to leave a prayer for the person above you (if there is not a request, please pray as God leads you to). If you are praying "behind your closed door," please just leave the notation - "prayed". So we know that these matters are being prayed for.

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
