Power in Prayer Celebration
for the Community
Everyone is Welcome!

Power in Prayer introduction:
In the not-so-ordinary events in our lives we are called and claimed by the Lord. Like Esther, may we find the courage to answer the call from the Lord. Esther 9.
Praise the Lord, for in our most dire moments, when even our earthly friends may abandon us, He is there for us. Ps. 124.
Wisdom does not interpret the world through rose-colored glasses. Wisdom’s vision is straightforward, clear and honest. James 5.
Imitation is the Best Form of Flattery.
It is especially good to be a part of the family of God. The family of God is grand. When we observe someone who is doing good in Jesus’ name, we should rejoice and be glad.
Jesus addresses an expansive, universalistic view of the church. As long as something is being done in the name of Christ they will “by no means lose the reward.” Mark 9:41.

Make them days of feasting and gladness, days for sending gifts of food to one another and presents to the poor. Esther 9:22.
Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth. Ps. 124:8.
The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective. James 5:16.
Whoever is not against us is for us. Mark 9:40.

Not for Tongues of Heaven’s Angels
Timothy Dudley-Smith

Not for tongues of heaven’s angels,
not for wisdom to discern,
not for faith that masters mountains,
for this better gift we yearn:
may love be ours, O Lord.
Love is humble, love is gentle,
love is tender, true, and kind;
love is gracious, ever patient,
generous of heart and mind:
may love be ours, O Lord.

Holy One,
hear our prayers and make us faithful stewards
of the fragile bounty of this earth
so that we may be entrusted with the riches of heaven. Amen.

I have been Anointed
Steven Warner

I have been Anointed with the Song of the Lord,
A song of Love and Compassion, a Song to Set Me Free.
God is My Rock of Salvation, a Beacon for My Soul.
Alleluia! Amen! Alleluia!
Praise to the Rock and the Well Spring, Creator of My Soul!

Redeeming Sustainer,
visit your people
and pour out your strength and courage upon us,
that we may hurry to make you welcome
not only in our concern for others,
but by serving them
generously and faithfully in your name. Amen.

Our Help is in the Name of the Lord. Ps. 124 Song. Esther Mui.

Prayer: Dear Lord, please be our guide and help in contentious places:
as Esther prayed faithfully and worked courageously
for the deliverance of your people,
strengthen us to confront the oppressor
and free the oppressed,
so that all people may know
the justice and unity of your realm. Amen.

Eye has not Seen
Marty Haugen.

When pain and sorrow weigh us down,
be near to us, O Lord,
forgive the weakness of our faith,
and bear us up within your peaceful word.
Our lives are but a single breath,
we flower and we fade,
yet all our days are in your hands,
so we return in love what love has made.

Raise us up, O Lord,
for it is you alone who restores life and health
to the suffering
and to those who wander from the truth.
By your grace,
may we offer powerful and effective prayers
for one another and the world,
in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

We are all stewards spreading the Word of Jesus’ blessings for His people.
