It is most difficult for me to keep up with
some of the changes that are occurring around me all the time!
Perhaps, you can adapt more easily! I realize that life is a
constant series of changes; that I must adapt and adjust. And
with those changes comes a fast paced, high pressure world filled
with frustration and choices. Sometimes those choices overwhelm
The church also faces those changes, those
frustrations, those adjustments as well. But in the midst of
those changes we can find strength and security in the fact that
there is one thing that does not change! The Word of God! It is a
"rock" that remains steadfast, regardless of what takes
place around us. God is the same yesterday, today and forever!
As we make some of the adjustments and choices
of life, let me suggest a prayer list for you. Please pray for:
Pray for the church to
remain as Christ created it! The
church we read about in the New Testament is exactly as
God wanted it. Let's pray that what ever comes we will
always seek God's plan.
Pray for your brethren.
We are all facing unique
problems and situations in our lives at this moment. It
may be children, job, retirement, the world, or whatever.
But we need your prayers that we may always seek God's
will in our lives.
Pray that we may all
seek the priorities of life that God would want us to
have. It is easy to get
caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily living and
forget God. Some things have to be chosen and placed
first. They don't automatically come first!
Pray for Christians
that you know have fallen away. They
didn't intend to. They didn't plan it that way. They need
your help to come back. Galatians 6:1, 2
Pray for the lost. Those outside the body of Christ need
our prayers. Then try to teach them the Gospel. That is
the only thing that can provide the help they need.
Pray for the elders and
deacons. They are
attempting to lead the church of Christ in the way that
God wants. They need your help and your prayers.
Pray for the leaders of
our nation, state and city. They,
too, need your prayers. 1 Tim. 2:1-4
