Precious Lord,

We come to you this morning with thankful and grateful hearts. You didn’t have to wake any of us up this morning, but those who were assigned to wake up, you allowed it to be so. May we use this day to glorify the Kingdom of God. May we use this day to share the love of Christ. May we use this day to speak life and love into each and every sentient being we encounter. Bring peace into our heart, our land, and our government. In the matchless and powerful name of Jesus we do pray, Amen and Amen.

God is Still Able…

Worship With Scripture

Ephesians 3:14-21

New King James Version

Appreciation of the Mystery

14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father [a]of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Dear Precious Lord,

We know that you are able to do anything but fail. Even though we will never be able to comprehend your thoughts, as they are so much higher than ours, we still trust you and we know that you won’t fail. We lift up our prayers to you and we say let your will be done, according to the will of heaven. Bring our heart, mind, and will in unison with yours, in the matchless and holy name of Jesus, we lift this prayer to you. Amen.

Peace Be Still…

Special Note: I love my husband Anthony’s heart for God. He knows the power and authority of calling on the name of Jesus. Anthony also says the same phrase that Jesus did, whenever he senses confusion, chaos, or unrest. He will simply say, “Peace be still.” The atmosphere obeys Anthony, not because he is special, but because the atmosphere knows under whose authority he is speaking.

Mark 4:37-39

New King James Version

37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”

39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

To the Lover of our Soul,

Lord Jesus, thank you for showing, teaching and reminding us of the authority and power we have in your name. We were created in your image. In scripture, you often remind us that the same authority you have we also have, because we are family and we are connected. May we use our spiritual muscles more each day. May we take control of the atmosphere, like you taught us. May we remember that as long as we pray, according to YOUR WILL, whatever we pray for shall be done. Mature us and grow us up. In your name we pray, Jesus, Amen.

Precious Father,

At every turn, you are right there with us. Some days it may feel like you are a thousand miles away, but you have shown us that you are always right there with us. Forgive us for doubting you. The pain, fear, and the unknown sometime causes us to look away from your presence. It is never you that has moved away, it is always US. You loved us so much that you gave the world your most precious gift, Jesus Christ our Redeemer. It is in His name we pray, Amen. Rev.

    you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
    will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the Lord your God
    who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
    I will help you.

Beloved Father,

We thank you for being with us, even in the dark places and during our valley experiences. Most people avoid going through hard and difficult times, because it is not easy. Valley experiences ushers us to call out to you, Lord. The problem is that most people let go of your hand, once the trouble is over and they are out of the valley. May we never let go of your hand. May we learn and understand that there is no safer place than when we are with you. Hold us close, in Jesus name. Amen Rev.

I Believe…

Worship With Scripture

The Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God,
the Father almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
he descended into hell;
on the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy universal church
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting. Amen.

New International Version

15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.

16 “Don’t be afraid,”(A) the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more(B) than those who are with them.”

17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots(C) of fire all around Elisha.

Holy Father, Thank you for always going before us, in battle. When fear and doubt try to overcome us, we know that you are our shield and sword.

Praise God in his holy house of worship,

Praise with a blast on the trumpet,
    praise by strumming soft strings;
Praise him with castanets and dance,

Praise him with cymbals and a big bass drum,
    praise him with fiddles and mandolin.
Let every living, breathing creature praise God!

Pouring Out Our Praise…

Psalm 147:7-11

The Message

7-11 Sing to God a thanksgiving hymn,
    play music on your instruments to God,
Who fills the sky with clouds,
    preparing rain for the earth,
Then turning the mountains green with grass,
    feeding both cattle and crows.
He’s not impressed with horsepower;
    the size of our muscles means little to him.
Those who fear God get God’s attention;
    they can depend on his strength.

    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[a

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors(D) through him who loved us.(E) 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither the present nor the future,(F) nor any powers,(G) 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God(H) that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.(I)
