Today is Thursday, June 4th, 2020; Karen's Korner #4224
National Day of Prayer, held each year the first Thursday of May, this year on Thursday, May 7, was organized differently this year due to social distancing.
The there: "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea." ~ Habakkuk 2:14 NIV
:Pray God's Glory Across the Earth" was the title of one of the brochures, asking people to pray for: church, government, family, education, business, military, and media.
Installment #5, undoubtedly written before churches across our country were asked to close
Let's pray for the CHURCH:
I Kings 8:10 -11 NASB
"Jesus, we pray that Your Presence would be saturated with Your Glory."
"We plead that Your Presence would fill the churches so that people will be drawn into and saturated in the experience of Your Presence in Your Church. That Your Word would be clearly and courageously taught ad obeyed. We pray that our lives will be a faithful testimony of Your Goodness and would be known by our love as we live to give You glory."
* Churches would be houses of prayer; overflowing with prayer throughout its weekly services and in the lives of every believer.
* All Pastors would be deeply rooted in the Word of God and would preach the Word of God with love and courage to guide and shepherd their flock.
* Pastors' marriages and families would be strengthened, appreciated and supported not criticized and exhausted.
* Every believer would understand that they have been called to pray, love, and share the gospel as laborers in the mission field of the places they live,work, learn, worship and play.
(Colossians 2:6 - 8; Ephesians 4:11 & 12)
