Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your instruction is true. Trouble and distress have overtaken me, but Your commands are my delight.” (Psalm 119:141–143, HCSB) Lord, indeed I am but a vapor, a blade of grass here today and gone tomorrow. I praise You because in spite of the brevity of my life I have experienced Your ‘everlasting righteousness.’ CONFESSION: ““I wish one of you would shut the temple doors, so you would no longer kindle a useless fire on My altar! I am not pleased with you,” says the Lord of Hosts, “and I will accept no offering from your hands. “For My name will be great among the nations, from the rising of the sun to its setting. Incense and pure offerings will be presented in My name in every place because My name will be great among the nations,” says Yahweh of Hosts. But you are profaning it when you say: “The Lord’s table is defiled, and its product, its food, is contemptible.” You also say: “Look, what a nuisance!” “And you scorn it,” says the Lord of Hosts. “You bring stolen, lame, or sick animals. You bring this as an offering! Am I to accept that from your hands?” asks the Lord.” (Malachi 1:10–13, HCSB) Lord, I confess that much of what I consider ‘religious’ is but useless and empty chatter in Your eyes. Lord, may I seek to fully honor You in every area of my life. THANSKGIVING: “But He gives greater grace. Therefore He says: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Therefore, submit to God. But resist the Devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners, and purify your hearts, double-minded people! Be miserable and mourn and weep. Your laughter must change to mourning and your joy to sorrow.” (James 4:6–9, HCSB) Lord, Your grace, Your presence is all I need. May I learn to take advantage of the offer of grace You give. SUPPLICATION: “While traveling to Jerusalem, He passed between Samaria and Galilee. As He entered a village, 10 men with serious skin diseases met Him. They stood at a distance and raised their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” When He saw them, He told them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And while they were going, they were healed. But one of them, seeing that he was healed, returned and, with a loud voice, gave glory to God. He fell facedown at His feet, thanking Him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus said, “Were not 10 cleansed? Where are the nine? Didn’t any return to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And He told him, “Get up and go on your way. Your faith has made you well.”” (Luke 17:11–19, HCSB) DONNA B.: Salvation for Larry, Amanda, Logan & Isabel, Melanie.

Pray for DR’s, nurses, and other front-line health care workers as they provide care for patients. We are as divided politically and culturally as at anytime in our history. Instead of praying for disaster to afflict those with whom we disagree, pray asking God to bring healing as people are given insight into God’s Word; ask God for a Spirit of peace to prevail – allowing people to disagree agreeably.
Please pray.WEEKLY PRAYER GUIDE – APRIL 7 – 13, 2021 “The Lord reigns! Let the earth rejoice; let the many coasts and islands be glad. Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; before Him and burns up His foes on every side. His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the Lord— at the presence of the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim His righteousness; all the peoples see His glory. All who serve carved images, those who boast in idols, will be put to shame. All the gods must worship Him. Zion hears and is glad, and the towns of Judah rejoice because of Your judgments, Lord. For You, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth; You are exalted above all the gods. You who love the Lord, hate evil! He protects the lives of His godly ones; He rescues them from the power of the wicked. Light dawns for the righteous, gladness for the upright in heart. Be glad in Yahweh, you righteous ones, and praise His holy name.” (Psalm 97, HCSB) SUBMIT YOUR REQUESTS TO GOD… BILL & MARLENE FLOYD – pray for patience, understanding and gace in their lives CAROL YOUNG – pray for daily strength and grace HELEN GUILLORY – she received her 2nd COVID vaccine on Tuesday GARY & MARIE WORTHINGTON – pray for Gary’s doctors as they develop a strategy to attack his cancer; pray for Mandy, Trey, Alec – that they might know God’s love JUDY KIRK – pray for her children Jonah and Gracetopher to return to the Lord; pray for healing for a fracture that is healing; MAC & MARILYN MCALLISTER – pray for their son, Todd who had recent shoulder surgery – doing physical therapy 2x per week… PASTOR STEVE & CINDY – Their daughter, Megan is looking for work in the WASHINGTON DC area DONNA BADOUR – pray for Larry, Amanda, Melanie & Jameson Story to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus Christ, pray for Logan & Isabel to hear and respond as well.
