(Continued from Friday)
The Saturday section of My TEA CUPP Prayers book mark is on the lower back side, when the book mark is folded. Here I list all ministries and missionaries for whom God has called me to pray. There are church camps, pastors, youth leaders, prison ministers, family and life ministries, missionaries to other countries, and churches in my town. I pray for God to bless them abundantly, provide for all their needs, protect them, and give them strength and wisdom for every day.
If you are making a prayer book mark and would like to pray for some ministries, I can give you a couple that need your prayers. One is Camp on the Boulder (www.campontheboulder.org), a wonderful church camp in south-central Montana. This ministry needs your prayers, miracles, campers and finances to continue the work God began here over 50 years ago. Another ministry prayer request I have is for My TEA CUPP Prayers. This is a ministry God called me to share that I hope to put into a book for others someday. Thank you for your prayers to help me fulfill God’s call.
One of my favorite verses to use when praying for ministries is…
God be merciful to us and bless us,
And cause His face to shine upon us,
That Your way may be known on earth,
Your salvation among all nations. Psalm 67:1-2 (NKJV)
Another favorite is Psalm 20 (NKJV). Our friends at Grace Church in Blanchester, Ohio blessed us with this Psalm when we first went into full-time camping ministry in 1997.
May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble;
May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
May He send you help from the sanctuary,
And strengthen you out of Zion;
May He remember all your offerings,
And accept your burnt sacrifice.
May He grant you according to your heart’s desire,
And fulfill all your purpose.
We will rejoice in your salvation,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners!
May the LORD fulfill all your petitions.
Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the saving strength of His right hand.
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
They have bowed down and fallen;
But we have risen and stand upright.
May the King answer us when we call. Psalm 20 (NKJV)
Remember, you can make your very own prayer book mark, or just contact me and I will be happy to send you one. Thank you for letting me share about My TEA CUPP Prayers book mark with you this week. Visit me again next week!
God bless you!
