Prayer for the Women of COBC delivered on January 8, 2012

Dearest Lord Jesus I pray for these women.

I pray that in 2012 we would be women who love the Lord our God with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind and all our might. …

I pray that we would be women who love those around us.

I pray that we would be women who worship in Spirit and in Truth.

I pray that we would have a constant awareness of God’s presence in our lives and not divide our lives into secular and spiritual. That we would remember that becoming more like Christ demands that we surrender ALL of ourselves to Him – all our hopes and dreams, our minds, our bodies, our marriages, our husbands, our children and our homes all belong to Him. May we trust You, Lord, to work all things for good because we love you,

Lord. I pray that we would be women who make time for what is important and of eternal value. That we would make time for studying God’s Word every day and then apply what we learn to our daily lives. I pray that we would grasp the fact that the more truth we assimilate, the more the Word will influence our daily lives.

I pray that we would learn to pray about everything and worry about nothing.

I pray that we would not forsake meeting together. That we would commit ourselves to learning in community.

I pray that we would not overlook sin in our lives but would confess it and repent of it, turning away from it. I pray that we would set no worthless thing before our eyes but would redeem the time you have given us.

I pray that we would resist the devil so he will flee from us. That we would stay in the battle against the world, the flesh and the devil, putting on the full armor of God every day.

I pray that we would be different from the world around us and walk in modesty and purity in the way we conduct ourselves and in the way we dress.

I pray that in being different we would be lights to a dark and dying world. And that we may let those lights shine so that others can see our good works and glorify our Father who is in heaven. Thank you Lord that we don’t have to try and do this in our own strength but can accomplish all things through Christ who strengthens us.

Help each woman remember that it is God who is working in you, enabling you both to desire and to work out His good purpose. 14 Do everything without grumbling and complaining, 15 so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God who are faultless in a crooked and perverted generation, among whom you shine like stars in the world.

In Jesus precious name we pray – Amen
