A Fresh Plan

Gracious Lord, help us today to live one day at a time with a fresh plan of fulfillment. Empower us to act on your divine ideas that we receive in moments of prayer and inspiration. Send these through wholesome, positive thoughts, so they won't get lost in the uncertainty of the times.

Help us to use creative thinking to build upon divine ideas as our activities become more dynamic and our abilities are enhanced. Therefore, we enter this new day with optimism, joy and enthusiasm. In Jesus name, Amen.

“Do not fear, little flock…”

Luke 12:32

Almighty God, call us again to be courageous in the face of uncertain seasons. Whisper to us your imperative to be of good cheer trusting completely in you. Perfect Love, cast out all of the fear that sucks the life out of us.

When the stealers of tranquility push us to the edge of panic remind us to focus on you until peace, perfect peace is restored. Praise God, we can rely on you to strengthen our hearts today and everyday. In the name of Jesus, thank you for the love we find in your presence. Amen.

Cleansing Power

Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Psalm 51:10

As we begin again a new week and a new day Lord, let your Spirit come with conviction and cleansing. Wash us with the pure water of repentance. Create in us a clean heart O God and renew a right, loyal and steadfast spirit within us.

Keep us from putting our confidence in the flesh so that we are neither barren or unfruitful. Our confidence is in you, our infinite Lord and Savior. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Thanks Living!

Lord Jesus, in your name we thank you this morning for a grace that sill amazes. My life would be terribly different if it wasn’t for your grace. Our names could be listed in the obituary section of the newspaper this morning or on the hospital registry, a court docket, or a sign in sheet of a mental institution – prognosis poor and future dim. Thank for your unmerited favor!

Thank you for a grace that lifts us up out of the pits of hell, Thank you for a grace that doesn’t have to meet any human approval system. Thank you for grace that shows up even when it is not deserved!

Thank you for the amazing grace that stands us up again when life trips us up. In Jesus name, Amen and Amen.

Dare to Believe

Who will we become if we dare to believe that we can do all things through you? Where will we go if we dare to believe that you order the steps of the righteous? What will we do if we dare to believe that nothing is impossible with you? How can we make it if we dare to believe that all things work together for good?

Lord, help us to dare to believe your word today. Your word has the power to reproduce itself in the life of the believer. Lord, we believe. Lord, help our unbelief.

Empower us to help another to dare to be and to do according to your Word.

In the matchless name of Jesus, Amen

Forgive us of falling short of your glory. Thank you for forgiving us of our trespasses as we forgive others.

Help us to be an encouraging presence to someone today. Help us to lift another's spirit with a kind word. Help us to celebrate the success of someone else without jealousy or envy, Help us to do good and to make good use of the time your give us.

In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Alone Not Lonely

O God, I rejoice today that I can spend time just being with you. No matter how much I love those you placed in my life, I love being alone in your presence for this moment. Let me fall into your arms, again. Let me taste and see that you are good, again. Let me drink deeply from your refreshing pools of living water, again. Feed me, O bread of heaven until I want no more.

Keeping company with you, the source of all wisdom, knowledge and power, leads to a greater revelation beyond human achievement. Being alone with you is a joy, alone and never lonely.

Tutor my spirit, when I need to be challenged. Assure my heart when fear seeks to overtake my faith. Give me a peace that satisfies my hunger for certainty and control. In Jesus name, Amen

Pile Ups!

"Our sins are piled up before God and testify against us...The Redeemer will come..."

Isaiah 59: 12-13, 20

Almighty and Everlasting God, we come confessing we have allowed too many things to pile up before you, even are sins. The work, the emails, the project completing, the thinking, the dishes, the laundry, the assignments, the trash, the mess, the shopping, the cooking, the wrapping, the giving, the tweeting and text responses are piled high even the sins that so easily beset us. O Lord, what can we do?

Isaiah prayed for Israel knowing that they couldn't handle their pile of sins by themselves. Neither can we. As we continue to celebrate the season of Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit who comforts and convicts forgive us Lord. Then, show us how we can bring down to size the earthly piles of "oughts" and "shoulds" of our lives. Amen.

Holy Spirit Power!

Matthew 5: 16

Search and Rescue

“I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears”

Psalm 34:4

Almighty and Everlasting God, we come seeking your face that we may know your will. We come seeking your hand as every good and perfect gift comes from you. We come seeking your presence as in your presence our souls take delight.

Forgive us when we sought others before we sought you in prayer and in your Word. You promised “Seek and you will find”. We claim now that promise for ourselves. We come with our hearts and dreams in our hand seeking answers, solutions, opportunity, strength, deliverance from all our fears. In Jesus name, Amen.

Soften Our Souls

“Lift up your heads…”

Psalm 24:9

Lord of Creation, you are the source of all things, the author of all knowledge and the architect of reality. Forgive us when we have had lapses and mistakenly thought we were the beginning and end of all things.

Awaken us today to the need to give serious attention to following the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Soften our souls that we may be open to the promptings your Spirit to speak and serve, move and minister, comfort and care.

May our love be genuine. May our purpose steadfast and our vision crystal clear. May we measure our words so that our yeas will be yeas and our nays nay. And finally let us be as generous with others as you have been to us. In Jesus name, Amen.

Soul Prospering

“ 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."

Isaiah 55: 8-9

Lord, we come to you today with all our plans held in abeyance. We look to you to guide us through the day your way without following our habitual practices and plans. We trust you to navigate us in the way we should go because your ways are not our ways just as your thoughts are dissimilar to ours.

Lord, be with our head and our understanding. Be with our heart so that love abounds. May our souls prosper today and always. In Jesus name, accomplish your purpose in our lives according to your timetable. Amen.



Join us early Thursday morning for our Praycation Conference call at 6 AM CDT/7 AM EDT. Just call 1-218-936-2800, access code 812713. There will be prayer, praise, study, testimony and more. The Praycation conference call is the first Thursday in every month.

A Fresh Break In

O Lord, our God, you have called us to be your people and to bring honor and glory to your name. We confess today, that we have tried to figure things out on our own and have failed. We relied on our intellect and education and still insight alludes us. We counseled with friends who have wrestled with similar struggles to no avail. We sat with those who have specialized knowledge but new issues arise and the mystery deepens.

O Lord, Our God, we need your Holy Spirit to break into our lives afresh. Fill us with your truth and ”… grant us wisdom for the facing of this hour.” Give us renewed strength to deal with the multitude of issues we face in this world. Empower us with your power that meets our weakness with a power not our own. In Jesus name, lead us through the moments of this day anticipating the joy that will be ours when we experience your grace, Amen.
