Prayer and Fasting for the Rosebud - Day 8

Today is the Lord's Day - lift up the Rosebud's "war on suicide" in the Prayers of the People and in altar intentions today.

Ephesians 6:18-20 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere...
The Lord gives us such a great opportunity to intercede when we gather in worship. We must not confine our intercession to Sunday, but how wonderful that the visible church comes together in prayer for the "whole state of Christ's church."

And what a time to pray in the Spirit. So often, we are intimate and uninhibited with God in private, but formal and introverted in public worship. May we be open in our prayers for the Rosebud war on suicide today. May we welcome the Spirit to guide our prayers and give us the right words to enlist others in this battle.

...And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike.I am in chains now, still preaching this message as God’s ambassador. So pray that I will keep on speaking boldly for him, as I should.

Please pray for all of the other intercessors and their families, who are "value rich targets" for the devil and his forces. Also pray for protection over the computers we use and for this blogsite.

Pray also for all Christians on the Rosebud Reservation, who are always under duress. Pray for clergy, lay leaders, missionaries and converts. Pray for their witness to be bold and convincing, and that no hindrances prevent them from fulfilling their mission.
