Prayers and Praises for the week of May 14-20th



                        Tybee Island Lighthouse, Coastal Georgia 


Hey y'all, it's prayer time again.  :)

A few short weeks ago, Jill talked to our sweet, SHINE, prayer sisters about being “lighthouses.”  She explained that this was her vision for SHINE girls.  "Waves could pound against us, ships could crash into us, storms could come and go; but our light would remain, shining brightly for all to see, with God’s word as our firm footing."  Of course, we know that God's word is THE only way that the lighthouse (WE) could withstand the elements!!!  (Don't you just love a good vision from God?!)

Ok, so imagine this... God's word, with us standing firm upon it-standing tall like that lighthouse, with God's love reflecting His LIGHT from us for others to see (the spotlight), with His love beaming down all over us!!

As I stood at the bottom of this beautiful lighthouse, just a few days later, I thought of all of us and Jill’s vision.  I snapped this shot and it says it all…. I love the LIGHT shining through the clouds.  God’s providential love and light reaching down to rest on the lighthouse, illuminating it magnificently!  I want to SHINE and I want God’s favor reflecting off of my life!!! 
For us, part of being "a lighthouse" is prayer!!!  (Thanks be to God! Because we LOVE to pray!)  Please post your prayer requests and/or praises below, we are honored to pray for you and with you-- to stand in the gap! We also love to celebrate your triumphs in Christ!!  We are praying things into being, girls, it's awesome to see!

"God desires that we call those things that be not, as though they were.” Romans 4:17   

Girls!  Let’s claim the Power of the Positive Confession of God's Word!

Shine on,
Rebekah

      Rebekah, noooo! :( I am so sorry to hear this, you poor thing! Praying that the good Lord would quickly eliminate this from your body. May He heal you from head to toe, and bring you a quick recovery. Praying that it isn't hard on you, and that you would be back to 100% asap. In Jesus Name, Amen. Thanking Him in advance for a settled tummy, much love, Sarah

    Please pray for my husband and his job. He is not sure what is next for Him and if the Lord wants him to stay where he is at or pursue other jobs. We are praying and seeking. At times I know my husband gets frustrated where he is but at the same time were so thankful for a job during these super tough times!!

      Praying for you Anonymous! May the Lord bless you and hear your prayers with your husband. May He guide your footsteps and direct your paths. Asking Him for doors to open that should be opened, and for doors to close that should be closed. Praying that your husband will prosper in his job and that success will follow him where ever he goes. Asking the Lord to watch over you and keep you, and place a hedge of protection around you both and your family, binding the enemy off of your life. Claiming life in this situation, and binding death. Lord, please give her husband wisdom and discernment to make the right decisions. In Jesus Name, Amen! Love, Sarah

  6. Father God, as you hear the petition of the heart of Anon (above), please move on behalf of her husband and her to lead and guide them to the job YOU desire for him. Cause them to trust you completely to use them where you plant them. Sometimes we don't see or understand your ways but we TRUST you. We KNOW you HEAR the cries for direction so we cast our cares of YOU and wait for you Lord. We are thankful you are pulling together so many people and things FOR OUR GOOD. I pray this will be a time of growth for this couple to pray together, seek you together and learn to trust you. Per James 1: 2-4 (Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.) Work this confidence in them both and make them strong like your Word also tells us you will do. Allow his frustration to ease and in its place add your peace. Lead him with diciple like actions that He may be more like you Jesus. Amen.
