As it is written in the Prophets: "Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You." "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight.' " Mark 1:2-3 (NKJV)
Father, thank you for those witnesses you sent before me to lead me to Jesus.
John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. Mark 1:4 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, raise up more people who will be willing to go out into the wildernesses of our communities for the sake of the gospel.
I indeed baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit." Mark 1:8 (NKJV)
LORD, help us desire what you desire for us.
A Word Received: Come to me; I Am waiting for you.
CITY MISSION PRAYER TABLE, Torre Bissell and Chuck Rinaldo, February 27, 2020
+ received cross
Torre is traveling to Indiana on Friday and returning Sunday for his sister-in-laws funeral. Pray for safety, and that he will have words of wisdom and comfort to share with the family.
Jordan – It has been a slow recovery from pneumonia. Pray for God's total healing and recovery of his strength.
Ray – Prayer of protection from Satan's attempt to side track him. Pray that Ray will hear God and follow, doing the work God is calling Ray to do.
Miguel – Pray that the Lord guide management at the Mission in the re-organization of staff to different positions.
Theresa – She has been experiencing negative effects from a generic medication. We pray that when she starts taking the right medication she will feel better.
Dave – Prayer for steadiness and peace.
Roland – He prayed for Torre and healing of his head and protection by the blood of Jesus. He also prayed for me (Chuck) that the blood of Jesus cover me and bless me.
Craig just returned from Florida after burying his father. We pray for God's peace and that an upcoming memorial service in April with extended family will be a blessing to all.
Jasmine – Pray against evil spirits. We pray the Lord fill her mind and heart with His love and comfort. We also pray a hedge of protection to ward off any evil.
Tim – We pray for God to continue to strengthen Tim in his fight to stay clean. We pray Tim remain steadfast and that God will guide him. He is 24 days clean.
Warren asked for prayer for his father, John, that he would build a new life.
Gail – Gail is very distressed and feels guilty about her dogs being taken from her, especially little Wally who she was very attached to. Wally would only eat if fed by her. She is worried about what has happened to the dog and its health. She is concerned that if it doesn't show social skills it will be put down or die because he is away from Gail's care. We pray against the devil who seeks to destroy her and we pray that she accept the love that Jesus offers to set her free and to comfort her; pray a hedge of protection around her mind. We also pray that she start the process to forgive those who have harmed her.
Randy – He is getting ready to go to court and we pray that the Lord go before him. He also asked for prayer for his father who is having reflux issues where food is getting into his lungs and causing respiratory difficulties. We pray that the Lord touch his esophagus and have it function normally.
