Seek the Lord while He may be found, call you upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. For My thoughts are not Your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there but water the earth and make it bring for and bud that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace, the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. [Isaiah 55:6-12]

Holy Spirit we continue to pray for the five month old Honesty who came through surgery but is closely watched to make sure her blood does not get to thick or too thin. We continue to pray for complete healing and for comfort for her mother Sequoia. Holy Spirit we continue to pray for the healing and progress for Kayla who seems to be finally improving some. We pray for Jim who has once again been battling cancer and needs to be healed. Holy Spirit James tells us to pray and lay hands on these people to be healed. We join in prayer for their healing and ask for Your mercy to be demonstrated today.

Holy Spirit we come to You a nation and a people who are diverse and divided. We need the church to step up and become the leader in how to love, forgive, show hospitality and how people can find joy. We need the church to stand up and demonstrate Your word and let You not us be judge. Let us be messengers who live our lives in a way that others will want we have not feel judged by what we say. Let us demonstrate as the first church did in much more difficult times than this, wonders, signs, miracles and healings. You have not changed, Your Spirit has not changed, Jesus has not left the throne so why as a church have we wondered so far. Where is our faith. Why do we not join together on bended knees crying out to You to move this current generation and to seek You with all our heart, desire and faith needed to see You once again breathe life into Your body of believers so that the tongues of fire once again burn within us so that we speak boldly Your words not our own. Help us to be like Christ and go to those who need saving, need healing, those who need to hear the good news. Let us believe with all that is within us and to trust fully in You to do the impossible. We pray for a miracle to occur for the people of the Ukraine. We pray that evil will be thoroughly stopped and defeated. 

Let this church, which is built on the solid rock not only weather the storms but be a place of shelter and growth. Let the church become the huddle before we go out into the game. Let us sharpen each other so that we are a fine tuned instrument to be used by You. Let our words be Your words, Let our sight be Your sight, Let our love be Your love and let our desires become what is Your desire. Help us to seek, find and thrive upon who You are. Amen.
