Prayers for Our City: January 8, 2018 – For Our Churches
“We are the light of the world. A CITY ON A HILL that cannot be hidden…. let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matt. 5:14, 16
As we dedicate 2018 to You, Father God, we praise You for Your faithfulness to the Body of Christ of Huntsville/Madison County. There is much to be done in our city, Lord, but first we thank You for all that You HAVE done here. We welcome anew Your deep love not only for those of us who know You, but for those who have not awakened to Your love and light YET!
May 2018 be a year of great awakening here in Huntsville.
We pray for the Church to awaken and be the children of the day that are needed in this dark hour. Remove any veils from our eyes to see clearly and be fully awake to Your beauty, love and authority. Enable us to let go and unlearn any false ideologies or teachings about You; to truly submit to the teachings of Christ so that we may manifest fruit to those who are still in the dark of night.
Jesus, You came as the Light of the world. You deposited Your light into the lives of all who believe, then charged us not to hide it. Help us respond to Your call to arise and shine. Enable us to manifest the new nature You have given us. In this new year may we sound the alarm and let the invitation shine through us as a beacon for all to see.
We are asking and believing for many, many in this city to respond to Your love and light through us!
For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober (clear-minded). I Thess. 5:5-6
