Psalms of the Street October 20, 2013

Sunday October 20th, 2013

Every Sunday evening we ask people to invest in our community through their money, through filling out an In-the-Loop card so that they may be known, and through their prayers. The prayer cards function as BSM’s “Psalms of the Street”, expressions that span a broad range of experiences: deep, raw sorrow; exuberant celebrations; burdens that need carrying; and personal and communal victories. The prayer cards are read out loud at our No Holds Barred bible study on Wednesday evenings and they are typed up with names removed and published here.

At Broad Street Ministry, we believe in the communion of saints, those who pray for us and alongside us, across history and across the world.  The Psalms of the Street found here are an opportunity for you to join this community in prayer, no matter where you are.

Dear God~

Thank you for the moments of love and clarity I’ve been experiencing – Please continue to motivate and inspire me! J

Amen – ****

I think my ****is having a bit of a crisis of faith; losing hope in her job search & in God.

Please pray her faith & strength & that she would know god’s love for her in spite of it all.  Thanks!

I’m glad you’re here- I’d like to be more involved – & ask for help.

My friend & co-worker ****has been diagnosed with stage 3 cancer.  Please pray for her & her family. – Thank you

I am thankful for God’s faithfulness in my life and the way that God’s people in this community buoy my spirit and let me know that I am loved.  Thank you, ****

God, I feel like I’ve been being short with people.  I feel annoyed with your people.  I know you know why God, but it doesn’t matter.  God, you offer courage & love, wisdom & discipleship.  Lord you know what I need.  Get me out of the way of what you would have my life be.

Please pray for me to stop allowing men with superficial views of relationships & women in my life.  Thanks for the prayers

Gratitude & blessings for ****15th Birthday.  Prayers for patience & peace… I am feeling low on both today.  Prayers for ****as she recovers from surgery, for ****& her upcoming wedding, for the week ahead & all it holds.

Move me to reach beyond myself this week ~

Pray that this anxiety and depression will be lifted, that life may be lived in joyful service given freely to others.

Dear G-D,You were with me when I needed you.  You always are.  I’ll need you again this coming week, please be there again.  Thank you, me

Please renew my spirit and give me strength.  I pray that ****receive assurance & relief.  I’m grateful for all the greatness that remains to be revealed.  Thank you God for keeping me.
