Weekend Prayer Wall {Mar 24-25}

Weekend Prayer Wall {Mar 24-25}


God looks not at the elegancy of your prayers, to see how neat they are; nor yet at the geometry of your prayers, to see how long they are; nor yet at the arithmetic of your prayers, to see how many they are; nor yet at the music of your prayers, nor yet at the sweetness of your voice, nor yet at the logic of your prayers; but at the sincerity of your prayers, how hearty they are.  There is no prayer acknowledged, approved, accepted, recorded, or rewarded by God, but that wherein the heart is sincerely and wholly. ~Thomas Brooks

The prevailing idea seems to be, that I come to God and ask Him for something that I want, and that I expect Him to give me that which I have asked.  But this is a most dishonoring and degrading conception.  The popular belief reduces God to a servant, our servant: doing our bidding, performing our pleasure, granting our desires.  No, prayer is a coming to God, telling Him my need, committing my way unto the Lord, and leaving Him to deal with it as seemeth Him best.~A.W. Pink

Then King David went and sat in the LORD’s presence. He asked:    Who am I, LORD God, and of what significance is my family that you have brought me this far? (2 Sam. 7:18, CEB/1 Chronicles 17:16, CEB)

The believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the community, to their shared meals, and to their prayers. A sense of awe came over everyone. God performed many wonders and signs through the apostles. (Acts 2: 42-43, CEB)

O Good Jesus,
let your voice sound in my ears so
that my heart and mind and inmost soul
may learn of your love,
and the very depths of my heart
be joined to you
who are my greatest delight and joy.
~Aelred Rievaulx (1109-67)

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what thou dost love,
and do what thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly thine,
until this earthly part of me
glows with thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with thee the perfect life
Of thine eternity.
~Edwin Hatch (1835-89)

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, let’s pray in Jesus’ name! Now it’s time for you to jump in with your prayers/prayer requests in the comment section (or link up your prayer post!). Let’s also pray for each other! Someone will pray for you/with you. (Because this is a global prayer wall, sometimes – due to the time differences – prayers are not instant. But know that God hears you 24/7! BLESSINGS!

Do you want to win a copy of the Common English Bible softcover edition? Just leave a comment and mention that you’d like to win. The winners will be announced on Wednesdays! All these CEB give aways are possible because I am participating in the Common English Bible Blog tour from Ash Wednesday all the way to Pentecost. This means that I will mostly be using the Common English Bible (CEB) on my blog posts. Let’s check out this fresh new Bible translation!
