July Prayer Time
by Eva Gibson, Prayer Team Member
We come to you, Father God, rejoicing that You are our Lord and King, our Leader and Powerful Savior. You have touched the hearts of OCW and breathed new life and love into our spirits. Wash us again in the pure holy water of Your Word then raise us to new heights that we might be Your writers for this hour.
We thank You for the staff and conferees You are gathering together for this year’s summer conference. We lift up empty hands and ask You to fill us with the courage and energy we need to write words that will touch men, women, and children for Your glory.
Empower us, Father, to cling to You, for You have the words we need to accomplish Your mission. Open our eyes that we might discover together the treasures in Your Word so that we can pass on to others. Open our hearts and give us wisdom and direction as we encourage others, for You have said, “Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom . . . . And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus (Colossians 3:16–17 niv).
