Prayer & Praise Monday – September 3, 2012

Final Day to enter the Throne of Grace Mustard Seed Prayer Journal Giveaway!!
For all the details, keep reading…

Happy Labor Day! We pray this finds you enjoying a little extra R & R today…hopefully giving you a little extra time to join us in prayer at the throne of grace today!

“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence,
so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
(Hebrews 4:16 NIV)

  • Praise the Lord with us for his provision for housing when Throne of Grace travels to Arizona for the Believe Boutique November 1st – November 4th. We’ve been given a hotel room for three nights FREE OF CHARGE!! What a blessing!

  • I (Molly) would appreciate prayers for my kiddos as they start school on Tuesday! Pray they will acclimate well to their new classes and classmates and that the Lord would use them as His little lights this year. I’ll have both kids in school 5 days a week for the first time, so maybe some prayers for Mama are in order too! 🙂

  • Tami, Deb, and Molly will be traveling this coming weekend with our families for our church’s Family Camp. Please pray for safe travels and that God would use this weekend to refresh our hearts and fill us with great teaching. We will be hearing from Pastor Milton Vincent, author of A Gospel Primer for Christians, so we will certainly come home with much to reflect on and apply!

  • Pray for those who have been devastated by Hurricane Issac in the southeastern U.S. Pray the Lord would use believers in that area to be His hands and feet and meet both the practical and spiritual needs of those around them. Pray that those who have lost all hope would find renewed hope in Jesus Christ.

It’s great to be able to lift up these needs together with you! As always, we’d love to know if you are praying with us today. Please leave a comment below!

  1. I don’t mind getting the ball rolling! Even though the Lord has given me a ministry based on prayer, I still find that I have so much to learn about this area of my walk with God. One weakness I’m specifically seeking to grow in is praying bolder prayers – prayers that require FAITH to pray!

  2. Beth Gillis says

    I struggle with that, too. And I think what I struggle with in prayer depends on the day. Often times, I lack focus (which my prayer journal helps with…shameless plug). 😉 On other days, I don’t spend enough time repenting of my sins, or even recognizing where I’m sinning. Thank God for His grace, love, and faithfulness to me…a weak and sinful follower of Christ.

  3. Sonja Thoma says

    I struggle with praying the same prayers… I get stuck in a rut! I’m thankful for the same things, struggle with the same things and then sometimes my prayers become a broken tape recorder (are those used anymore?)! 🙂
