pray yakima 24.7

2nd Sunday Each Month

Thank you for spending time in prayer this Sunday for our church and for Yakima Valley. Attached are this month’s prayer prompts from the team behind Pray Yakima 24/7. What an honor to join other churches across our Valley to pray over our city!
Prayer matters! May God bless your time. please send us an email!
Our desire and purpose for 24/7 is to “set a watch” by connecting with Grace to pray for our Valley one day each month so that we may experience the blessings of God’s promises 24/7 for 365 days of our year.  Your part is vital to this end.

The Lord is my light and my salvation - so why should I be afraid?
The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?  Psalm 27:1
We all, like sheep, went astray; we turned, each one, to his own way; yet Adonai laid on Messiah the guilt of all of us.
Therefore, I will assign Him a share with the great, He will divide the spoil with the mighty.  
Isaiah 53:6,12
We Praise God as Our Father: Psalm 100:3-5 Know and fully recognize with gratitude that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. 4 Enter His gates with a song of thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, bless and praise His name. 5 For the Lord is good; His mercy and lovingkindness are everlasting, His faithfulness [endures] to all generations. Psalm 68:5-6  A father of the fatherless and judge and protector of the widows is God in His holy habitation. 6 God makes a home for the lonely; He leads the prisoners into prosperity, only the stubborn and rebellious dwell in a parched land. Psalm 118:28-29 You are my God, and I give thanks to You; [You are] my God, I extol You. 29 O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His lovingkindness endures forever. Malachi 2:10 Do we not all have one Father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously with one another, profaning the covenant of our fathers [with God]?
We Ask and Listen: Psalm 25:4,5 Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. 5 Guide me in Your truth and teach me for You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long. Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, they will walk and not grow tired. Psalm 78:1-4 Listen, O my people, to my teaching; Incline your ears to the words of my mouth [and be willing to learn]. 2 I will open my mouth in a parable [to instruct using examples]; I will utter dark and puzzling sayings of old [that contain important truth]— 3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. 4 We will not hide them from their children but [we will] tell to the generation to come the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord and [tell of] His great might and power and the wonderful works that He has done. 1 John 4:7,8  Beloved, let us [unselfishly] love and seek the best for one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves [others] is born of God and knows God [through personal experience]. 8 The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.]
Our Response - Obedience: Matthew 22:37 And Jesus replied to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Proverbs 3:5 Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 23:22-25 Buy truth, and do not sell it; Get wisdom and instruction and understanding. 24 The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice and he who sires a wise child will have joy in him. 25 Let your father and your mother be glad and let her who gave birth to you rejoice [in your wise and godly choices]. Ephesians 6:4 Children, obey your parents in the Lord [that is, accept their guidance and discipline as His representatives], for this is right [for obedience teaches wisdom and self-discipline]. 2 Honor [esteem, value as precious] your father and your mother [and be respectful to them]—this is the first commandment with a promise— 3 so that it may be well with you, and that you may have a long life on the earth. 4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger [do not exasperate them to the point of resentment with demands that are trivial or unreasonable or humiliating or abusive; nor by showing favoritism or indifference to any of them], but bring them up [tenderly, with lovingkindness] in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Our Blessings of Obedience: Deut 28:1-15 “Now it shall be, if you diligently listen to and obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all of His commandments which I am commanding you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. 2 All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you pay attention to the voice of the Lord your God.3 “You will be blessed in the city, and you will be blessed in the field. Psalms 1;1-2 Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked [following their advice and example], nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit [down to rest] in the seat of scoffers (ridiculers). 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord and on His law [His precepts and teachings] he [habitually] meditates day and night. Philippians 4:4-6 Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, take pleasure in Him]; again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentle spirit [your graciousness, unselfishness, mercy, tolerance, and patience] be known to all people. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. 7 And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].
The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, to guide and to shield me], I shall not want. Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, And I shall dwell forever [throughout all my days] in the house and in the presence of  the Lord. Psalms 23:1,6
