Changing Face of Compton

fireworks3
Compton is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. It is home to almost 100,000 citizens. Known as the “Hub City” because of its unique position in almost the exact geographical center of Los Angeles County, Compton is strategically located along the Alameda Corridor, a passageway of 25 percent of all U.S. waterborne international trade. Compton is rapidly emerging as a large industrial center in Los Angeles County for transit and distribution, business services, high technology, home and lifestyle products, metals, financial services, and textile manufacturing.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

How great is our God!  The sun, the moon, the stars, the clouds, the birds, the trees, the flowers and we Your people shout out to the world, how great is our God!!!   Thank You Lord for today, another day we have not seen before.  It’s another day we begin with new mercy and unconditional love from our great God.  We’re excited about the endless possibilities and awesome benefits this day will bring.  We pray one for another, asking that You speak healing to those experiencing the seasonal cold and flu.   Speak peace to the confused, depressed and lonely.   Lord, order our steps today, open our ears so we will hear Your voice and follow where You lead.   We believe by faith something good will happen today,  we say thank You in advance, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

Thank You Lord for another beautiful day!  As we see the rain fall, the sun shine, the snow melt and breathe in the air You  provided, we can't help but say, oh Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Thy Name!  We thank You for Your power, we thank You for Your peace, we thank You for Your love, we thank You for Your joy, we thank You for Your protection, we thank You for our family, we thank You for our friends, we thank You for our jobs, we thank You for our homes, we thank You for food to eat and clothes to wear; Lord we praise You for Your goodness, for You have taken good care of us every day of our life.  We pray that You will strengthen us to be all that You created us to be this day and that we realize You are there today, just as You have been all the days of our life.  This is the day that you have made and we will do our best to rejoice and be glad in it, in Jesus Name, Amen.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER

Lord, we thank You for life, health and strength. We thank You for another beautiful day to live. Great is Your mercy towards us. You keep doing great things for us. You keep looking beyond our faults, our mess and mishaps and You continue to see the best in us. We pray each one will purpose in our heart to stay focused, give us the wisdom to recognize distractions and be determined not to be distracted. There are just a couple more weeks in this year, we pray each one will be determined to finish strong and begin today. Help us to see what we need to complete and the courage to just do it. We give You praise in advance for the great things we shall experience before 2015, in Jesus Name, Amen.

FRIDAY MORNING INSPIRATION:

I WISH

Have you ever said:
I wish I could sing like her?
I wish I could write like him?
I wish I was a poet?
I wish I was funny?
I wish I had big lips?
I wish I was an athlete?
I wish I was famous?
I wish I was rich?
I wish I had swagger like him, he has all the women?
I wish my behind was a little bigger?
I wish I was popular?
I wish I had a man/woman like her/ him?
I wish, I wish, I wish! Knock it off!

How ‘bout you just be happy being you?
How ‘bout being thankful for what you have?
You will never be happy “wishing”. We wish because we’re looking elsewhere, when the truth is, if we take the time to know “who we are” we’ll find we’re interesting ourselves. Stop wishing on a star and be happy that you are the star. In fact, you are the apple of God’s eye just the way He made you.

Wishing has destroyed relationships. Wishing has brought on great debt. Wishing has caused people to give up on who they are in search for who they wish they could be. Then, after all the wishing you end up wishing you never did, which means you’re still wishing.

The antidote for wishing is, believe God knew what He was doing when He made you (just the way you are). Embrace who you are, appreciate what you have and instead of wishing, be thankful! You are the best you God made and no one can beat you being you.

THURSDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Hallelujah, to the Lord our God. Hallelujah because You reign forever! Hallelujah because You are the only true and living God! Hallelujah because there is none like You. Lord You are an awesome God! Thank You for another day to celebrate the gift of life. We pray each one takes the time to appreciate breathing. Every breath we take is a blessing. Lord we thank You for the many blessings we often take for granted. It’s a new day and we look forward to new blessings and new opportunities to live out our purpose. We look forward to letting the world see You in us. We purpose in our heart right now to be the best we can be today. We look forward to You getting glory out of our life today, in Jesus Name, Amen.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Lord, You are a mighty God.   You are a mighty God and we thank You for loving us with all Your might.   Thank You for being the only constant we have.   People change, things change and situations change, but You always remain the same.   Your grace is amazing.  Your love is unconditional.   Your mercy is everlasting.  Your peace is sustaining.   Lord we thank You for sharing You with us.   Because of You we can expect greater every day of our life.   Because of You we can expect victory in all things.    Because of You all weapons formed against us will not prosper.   Lord we worship You for Who You are and we praise You for being Who You are in our life.   We pray each one remembers Who You are and who we are because of You.   We’re praying for Myra Payton as she prepares to enter the operating room.   We ask that You remind her that You’re with her, give her peace and give the doctors the skills they need to perform a perfect operation.  We declare great things in our life today, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

How great is our God!   Your Name is above all names and You’re absolutely worthy of our praise.  We praise You because mighty are the works of Your hands.   We thank You for continuing to be God no matter what we say or do.   We thank You for being our refuge and strength, a very present help in our time of need.   There is none like You!  Thank You for loving us with all of You.   We pray each one will dismiss all excuses today and just do “IT”!   Whatever our “IT” is, today is the day to do it.   Today is the day to make the first step.   Today is the day to take the next step.   Today is the day to finish what we started.   We expect You to move mightily in the steps we take today.  We pray a special prayer for Kim Maddox, praying for Your mighty healing touch to clear her body of all cancer.   We’re also praying for Carl DuBois and family as they mourn the sudden passing of daughter, Lumika DuBois.  Father, draw each one closer to You, comfort and grant them peace.  Lord we thank You for today, so thankful we will rejoice and be glad in it, no matter what.  In Jesus Name, Amen.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER:

We praise the Name of Jesus! We thank You Lord for waking us to see another perfect day. We thank You for the gift of life. We thank You for another chance to say yes to Your will. We pray one for another, praying each one will take the time to enjoy the air You’ve given us to breathe. Take the time to admire the greenery You’ve given us to appreciate. Take the time to show love one to another, say thank you and I love you. Take the time to say uplifting words to our children. We have so much we should take the time to do and so much we should stop wasting time doing. Let us view today as a blessing and privilege to be alive and purpose in our heart to allow You to get glory out of our life today. We pray a special prayer for Norma Galvez, the doctors have spoken the word cancer, we pray You speak the word healing. Continue to strengthen her as she and her family look to You for an expedient mighty move of healing from You. We love You Lord and we shall go forth today showing Your love everywhere we go, in Jesus Name, Amen.
