The Glory of the Lord – by Mike Ellis

Hello my friends, and thank you for stopping by today for our Prayers for the Week post!  The past two weeks I’m trending towards praising God, not just raising petitions to Him, and I’ve got to say, I feel more joy in my life, despite some sometimes trying circumstances!  This week, let’s talk about the Glory of the Lord.  I heard a song on Monday — way back on Monday — and I immediately had to start on this post.  Look for a video to get you in the Spirit of Worship at the end of this post.  But first, let’s pray:

Heavenly Father, thank you for sharing with us, the fallen, the sinners, Your Son, Jesus.  Thank you for giving all of us that Believe in Him a second chance at Eternal Life.  Lord, thank you for all of your Glory, for all of your Honor, for all of your Love, and for helping us to walk the walk that Jesus would have us walk.  Thank you for hearing us, for guiding us, for helping us, for healing us, for all that you do for us.  Lord, hear our prayers, and stay with us throughout the week, gently reminding us of the ways that we should share Your Grace, Your Glory, with those that don’t know you.  It is in the beautiful name of your Son Jesus that we pray with Thanksgiving. Amen.

Prayer Requests and Praises…

  • This past Tuesday, Sophie auditioned for All County Band for Wake County Public Schools.  While she didn’t make it, she did earn an Honorable Mention, and the true benefit for us was seeing her reaction to hearing that her classmate James made 3rd chair tuba in the All County Band.  I was worried that she would be upset that she didn’t make it, but rather than that happening, she was very excited that James did make it, and I knew at that moment that Sophie’s heart was right where we prayed it would be — celebrating those that made it, and not dwelling on her not making it.  Thank you God for all that you’ve given to Sophie!

That’s all that I’ve got for you today — as you can see, it is a small post — but what I urge you to do is to pray, and if you care to, leave your requests with us so that we can pray for you also!  Now, please enjoy hearing to Glorious, performed by Paul Baloche.  Enjoy, my brothers and sisters, and thank you for stopping by today!

Thank you for praying with us, my friends. Now, please pray the prayer that Jesus taught his Disciples to pray:

Our Father, who art in Heaven,
Hallowed by thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever and ever.
