June 2022 Prayer

Lord God, as You care for the flowers, birds and trees, so too will You care for Your people in this new month. Lord God, thank You that nothing is beyond Your control!

Lord God, help us to become more like Christ in this new month. Lord God, Your Word in both the Old and New Testament tell us not to be surprised or taken off guard by war, rumors of war, pestilence, disease, food shortages, famine and persecution.

Lord God, help Your people to endure trials and to be patient with people more this month. Father God, as the weather in the North heats up, help Your people to be agents of peace and reconciliation not sowers of discord and malice. Lord, help Your people to exercise reason and common sense so that cooler, tempered minds, hearts and hands may prevail.

Lord God, reveal to this reader and myself where we are starting to compromise and look more like the world. Reveal to us in this new month Lord what we are holding on too tightly. Lord God, root out anything in us that is keeping us from growing closer to You!

Lord God, give Your people increased wisdom and discernment in this new month. Lord, it is blatantly obvious that we are living in a post-Christian time period. Help us to be good stewards and witnesses for You as the time of Jesus’s return is nearer with each passing moment.

Lord God, prepare Your people for what they will face, not only this month but in the months to follow. Lord God, Your Word is life; it is our comfort and joy. Help us to apply Your Word this month so that we will be prepared to stand firm in the trials that we face.

Lord God, I pray for the reader who has wandered from the faith, Lord, stir their heart to return to You. Lord God, for the reader who is hostile to the faith, if You lead them to this prayer may You convict them of their sin and their need for a Savior. Regardless of where one positions themselves in regards to the elect/called/chosen/whomsoever, thank You and praise You Lord that You are the One who save us from start to finish. It is not our work or achievements but Christ crucified, buried, resurrected and ascended who is the Redeeming Savior for all those who trust and believe in Him.

Lord God, I am reminded in John 10 that You are the Good Shepherd. But before that, You say You are the Door/Gate for the sheep. So often Lord we want Your provision, protection and blessing as the Good Shepherd but we do not want Your exclusivity, we do not want to enter through the narrow door, walking the narrow path of obedience. Lord God, convict us of our arrogance, our hypocrisy and our lack of love and reverence for You. May we NEVER forget Jesus that You are the Way, the Truth and the Life and that no one comes to the Father except through You (John 14:6).

Lord God, thank You for this reader. Thank You that You know everything about this reader and what they will face this month. Strengthen and guide this reader Lord to lead the lost to You, to encourage believers and to glorify You. In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen.

      1. Wow I was debating between which three books I should being on vacation and one of them was canon revisited. I think in light of your providential comment I am going to read his book as it has been sitting on my book shelf unread for too long!! Have you read it sister, and/or is that a required text book and do you have the book yet??? The last question is important 😂

      2. I just started the book for my NT class and even from the preface I was like if Jimmy hasn’t read this, I’m sending it to him! I’ve only read the Preface, Intro and a little of ch 1 and it is good. It’s NOT deeply philosophical (which he admits upfront and as you know he does care deeply about) but the aim of this book is deeply theological even from the little bit that I have read. I am fascinated by canonical studies and I look forward to hearing your thoughts and review!

  4. Well, as a late comer to June’s prayer, I can say that the Lord is already answering. He has shown me where I need more patience and be a better agent of peace.
    I hope you’re well Mandy. Let’s see how the Lord continues to answer these June prayers. ❤

      1. I am loaded. Over the last few weeks I bought things to improve my tools. I hope its obvious that I operate under the law and ethics for self-defense and defense of others. Tonight is going to get ugly around the country.

      2. I am praying and praying for you Nancy and kiddos in between bouts of sleep.
        I have seen some pictures of LA. I just said to a friend the riots of 2020 will be nothing compared to what we will see over Roe. God have mercy on His people!!!! Lord God protect Jimmy and his family, TCAC and the whole
        TCAC family. Praise You Lord that You are a life affirming God. Lord, may the violence and defiant attitude towards You, Your created order and Your love for the born and the preborn make itself known to Your elect. Lord, thank You that You are still saving sinners. Protect Jimmy and Nancy and family Lord. In Jesus’s Name we pray. Amen.

      3. Thank you for your prayers; it seems when I look online the Police departments and sheriffs in Southern California fortunately tolerate less violence than Seattle and Oregon. I think Seattle and Oregon is so nutty.

      4. Brother, we saw some reports out of Portland the other day with the drugs, homeless and mentally ill, anyone who thinks that isn’t coming to a major city near them is living in a fantasy world. I’m know we’ve talked about this in other avenues but it is time for
        Christians to be like the ant and preparing for when times (which I think aren’t far off) get really rough because it is soon going to be too late to get supplies. (Obviously not advocating hoarding but for christians who have the opportunity to get supplies they should do so asking God to prepare their heart to share with others as well.)
