Prayer

Our vision is to see the body of Christ fully alive and walking in the grace and truth of God’s Word. Following the example of Jesus, we desire to continually do God’s will and regularly pray to him.

As we seek the Father and dwell in His presence, our hearts become one with his. Our delight is in him, and we become the aroma of Christ and the fragrance of the knowledge of him to those around us (II Corinthians 2:14).

The Bible instructs us to put on and take up our offensive and defensive weapons, stand firm, pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests and keep on praying for all the saints (Ephesians 6). 

We are urged to pray for our leaders (I Timothy 2:1); to pray without ceasing (I Thessalonians 5:17); to knock, seek and ask (Matthew 7:7); to present our requests to God through prayer (Philippians 4:6); to devote ourselves to prayer (Colossians 4:2); and to pray in faith (James 5:15).

Turn Your fierce wrath from me and my wife please we cannot endure much more pain. God I ask that You declare a blessing and a hedge of protection upon(especially protected from the men trying to win my wife over) my marriage and my wife that there will never be unfaithfulness from my wife or myself, that it last forever that it will be happy and glorify You.  I also ask that we speak, think, and do everything You desire and our desires align with Yours.

I also ask that You forgive any other sins and debt against You of my wife and I. And that You restore my youth and every blessing that sin, satan, and the world has stolen.
