Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, we thank You that You desire a relationship with us, and that You have put within us a desire for relationship You and with fellow believers. We were not meant for separation from You, Your word, or Your people. You have given us instruction through Your word on how to combat the enemy, so we ask that You give us the wisdom to use this armor of protection. Open our eyes to see the spiritual warfare around us and allow us to see the army that is FOR us. Remind us each day to look to You for the wisdom we need and to not be distracted by the constant barrage of worldly wisdom that is coming at us from every direction. For we know that Your wisdom is pure and gentle, full of mercy and grace, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Mold us and shape us all to be more like Your son Jesus. Show us how to combat this invisible enemy in a way that brings us back together, back to You, and back to Your word. In Jesus’ name, amen. 


Ladies—come join us in exploring how 1st century Jesus came down in the middle of the ruins of this world & put His Hands all over them to restore us.  We will be meeting on Thursdays 9:45-11:45 from Sept 15-Nov 3rd in the FLC to discover Jesus & Women. Deadline to sign up is Aug 28. Contact Text Phyllis Miller [email protected] or 706-994-2800 to join and order a book.
