Community members gather together in Joplin to pray for those who serve and protect. This was inspired after recent events that have not only happened here, but in other parts of Missouri. These tragedies inspired people to get out and pray for protection over those who protect us.

“It’s called Make Me Over Again, with pampering and prayer”

August 9, 2017

[Fox17online.com – Grand Rapids, MI] by Rebecca Russell

It was a night of pampering for one group of women in Grand Rapids, a group that’s not used to getting a little T.L.C.

Around 25 women who are either homeless or are in transition were given free makeovers thanks to a local ministry and makeup artist….

“It’s called Make Me Over Again, with pampering and prayer,” said Pastor Eddie Lipscomb from God’s Love Ministry. “Everything that goes out of God’s love has prayer, it goes with it automatically. We know that prayer is awesome. It’s a communication and opens up the doors for a lot of things.”…

A prayer for all our teachers

August 3, 2017

[The Brewton Standard – brewtonstandard.com – Brewton, AL]
Pastor James A. Medows, East Brewton First Church of the Nazarene

As all teachers prepare to return to the classroom, this is our prayer for you. For we know how important you are in the lives of our children and the future of our nation.

Dear God, today I lift up all teachers to you. I pray for your anointing upon their lives, their work, and their ministry. I pray you will give them wisdom, knowledge, guidance, patience, love, protection, understanding, insight and everything they need to be a positive life changing influence upon those they teach. I pray you will keep them safe from all harm and evil.

I pray you will bring their minds the lessons and information they need to teach and the ability and skills to do what is good, right, and best in every situation.

I pray that each one will not see their profession and standing as just a job, but as an opportunity to make a difference in lives and show your love to others.

May they be salt and light in this world. May they rely on your strength and grace each and every day to accomplish that which you would have them to do.

Bless them, father, as your servants and children. And may they be a blessing to others with whom they work and teach. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
