This is Your Wake Up Call!

Praycation – It’s Not About You!

Beloved, in our final week of Praycation 2014, let’s look beyond our own interests to the concerns of the others. It means doing more than taking an “usie” instead of a “selfie”. It’s knowing that you are important to God and so is everyone else. It’s not always about you.!

Let us be in prayer for someone else’s family, child, job, income, mental stability, friendships, nation and neighborhood. Remember to lift those who are facing health challenges and serious medical procedures; crises of faith and confidence.

Let’s remember those whom grief has gripped in its deadly vise. Pray that the love of God will do for them what human efforts cannot do. Ask God to intervene into human affairs whether they touch your household or not.

Let us pray:

O lord, our God, how excellent is your name in all the earth. Forgive us for coming too often with our petitions for our right now and tomorrow needs without proclaiming your great and mighty acts or thanking you for the joy of our salvation.

We rejoice today for your unfathomable amazing grace, unequaled peace and endless love. Help us to make known today all the marvelous things you have done in us and in the lives of those we know and love.

We pray for the victims of earthquakes and tsunamis; gang violence and acts of hate; victims of AIDS and other diseases; parents who are forced to bury their children; those who risk their lives on the fields of conflict and those who live in the gap between what is promised and what is delivered.

Help us to be a blessing to both friend and foe. Show us how we can share with the hungry and marginalized and help us to bless those who can’t bless us back. Today we give without looing for a return!

In Jesus name, Amen
