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.

FRIDAY MORNING INSPIRATION:

THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK,

YOUR WORDS ARE POWERFUL
.
Your words can build up or tear down.
Your words can make someone’s day brighter; or cause someone to feel the sun is no longer shinning.
Your words can encourage or discourage.
Your words can inspire someone to dream or make them feel like they are in a nightmare.

Whether you’re speaking to or about yourself, to or about someone else, remember, what you say is powerful.
If you’re wondering why things are going the way they are in your life; think about it, I bet you said it.
If you’re sick, think about it, did you say, “I’m sick?”
If you are low on funds, in fact you’re always low on funds, think about it, did you say, “I don’t have no money?”
Are you lonely, think about it, did you say, “I’m lonely?”

What you say today will affect today and possibly tomorrow too.
Think before you speak, your words are powerful.
Now go say, “today is a great day, greatness will come my way!”

THURSDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Hallelujah! We praise You O Lord for waking us to see this new day. We thank You because all the days of our life we have never seen one day repeated. We praise You because all the days of our life with each few seconds we take a new breath. We thank You Lord because You have been faithful at providing us something new with each new day. We pray we not place You in a box and expect things to happen today as they did on yesterday; But rather expect You to continue to be God and look for the new You have for us today. We pray each one is reminded today of the company we keep; help us to remember everywhere we go, in all that we do, You are with us and we should purpose in our heart to give honor and glory to the company we keep. We pray our light shines so all those around us can see the only true and living God lives within us; and that they may be inspired to taste and see that our God is good. We give You praise in advance for victory after victory today, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Lord, You are our provider; You are our healer; You are our friend; You are our very present help all the time. Lord, You are more than enough for us. We pray each one remembers today all we need is already with us. There is no need to panic, no need to worry, no need to fuss, no need to complain, no need to take matters in to our hands; help us hear You say, “I’ve got this, trust Me.” Help us hear You say, “I’m working it together for Your good.” Help us hear You say, “Be of good cheer, I’ve already overcome that.” You have shown us over and over again Your words are powerful, there is no voice louder than Yours, no action stronger than Yours; We pray each one will trust Your reputation and allow You to continue to be, “I Am” in our life. We give You praise for this new day of victory in our life, in Jesus Name, Amen.

FRIDAY MORNING INSPIRATION:
SMILE
What makes you smile? A bright sunny day? The laughter of the children? Sitting watching a movie and eating popcorn? A walk on the beach? What is it? Seeing the flowers bloom? Spending time with family and loved ones? Is it laughing out loud, louder than you’ve ever laughed before? What is it that makes you smile? Is it knowing you have at least one friend who has your back?
Life is beautiful, God is good! We have so many reasons to smile. It’s time we stop letting things that have the potential to take away our smile win. God smiles on us each day we live, so why not smile back at Him? Why not look at the things that seem to be tearing us a part and simply, smile. We can smile because God never stops smiling. God is never intimidated by the things we go through in life, He simply smiles and says, “I got this! I’m working it together for your good.” Then He says, “Will you trust Me enough to smile?”
Often times we take for granted the things and people who make us smile. We trade things that naturally make us smile for things that bring a temporary smile. Don’t do it! Recognize where your smile comes from, appreciate it and smile! We all have issues, problems and distractions, but for right now, forget about it, look back at God and smile!
Come on, you can do it, say “cheese” and smile!

THURSDAY MORNING PRAYER:
We praise the Name of Jesus! Thank You Lord for blessing us to live in another new day. We thank You because we have everything we need to have a victorious day. We have no reason to worry, fuss or complain because greater is He Who lives in us than any excuse to worry, fuss or complain. Fill us with Your Spirit so we have no room for envy, hatred, jealousy, disobedience, pride, doubt or worry. We pray each one remembers all You have made available to us to experience victory today, but it’s up to us to use our faith, show our love and demonstrate our obedience to You. We declare by faith today is the first day of the best days of our life; we shall have what we decree, we shall experience Your favor this day, in the Name of Jesus, Amen.

O Lord, our God how excellent is Thy Name in all the earth. You are holy, righteous, faithful, true, just, love, merciful, all powerful, all knowing, everywhere present, our protection, shepherd, peace; There is none like You in all the earth. We thank You for loving us always unconditionally. We pray each one is ever conscious of Who You are and who we are because we belong to You. Just like our Father, our words are powerful, we pray each one speaks words that bring life. We pray our speech is seasoned with grace, our thoughts are laced with love and our actions exemplify we are the recipients of Your new mercy today. We pray we let brotherly love abound and our presence in this world today will make someone smile, show someone hope and lead someone to the Light. It’s a great day, we thank You in advance for a mighty move from our Great God in our life today, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Our Father, we love and worship You for Who You are; You are the great I am and more and more each day we’re learning to lean and depend on You. We’re learning to trust You more and we’re absolutely learning to love You more. No one else can love us like You do. No one else knows us like You do, and with all You know about us, You still love us, You still forgive us, You still see the best in us, You still continue to use us as a channel to bless Your people. We thank You Lord for loving us always, unconditionally. We pray each one will let go of the things and people who are hindering us from drawing closer to You. We pray our strength will be weakened when it comes to fighting Your will in our life. You have said no, help us to accept Your no. You have told us to go, help us to trust Your way and move forward. You have told us yes, help us to believe because You said Yes, You’ve already opened the door. We pray in this new day we will develop a new love and trust for You, in Jesus Name, Amen.

MONDAY MORNING pRAYER:
Our Father in heaven, we thank You for blessing us to see this new day. We thank You for Your goodness, kindness, mercy and grace. We praise You because we know You are the source of our strength, joy, peace and love. It is in You we live, move and have our being; if it had not been for You on our side, there is no way we would have made it this far. We pray one for another, praying each one will purpose in our heart to do something different today. We pray each one will smile more and laugh louder. Life is good because You’re good, and all that does not look good to us right now, by faith we call it good, believing because we love You, You’re working all things together for our good. We don’t know what this day shall bring, but we do know You’re with us, we know You love us, we know You’re for us; Knowing what we know about You we declare by faith, today is the first day of the best days of our life,we lift unto Detra Davis and David Taylor asking that your healing virtues would virtues would come upon, from the crown of their heads, unto the souls of their feet, thee are so many others standing in the need of prayer, so we ask that Your Will be done in all of their lives. We Pray also for those bereaved families dealing with passing of loved ones, in Jesus Name, Amen.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
We give thanks to You O God for blessing us to be a part of another one of Your new days. We praise You because all the days of our life we have never seen one day repeated; You have been faithful at being creative since the beginning. You have shown us there is nothing too hard for You to do and in all that You do, You do all things well. In the times we don’t understand what You’re doing or why You permitted some things to happen, we pray You give us the strength and courage to lean not to our own understanding, but continue to talk to You and always trust You. We pray for the family and friends of Shamara Seales, draw them closer to You and grant them peace. We Pray also for the family of Melton Potts c/o 75 and family as they mourned the passing of their beloved Mother.Bless each eye that reads this prayer, see our need, concern, desire, struggle, sickness or pain; We’re expecting a mighty move from You, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Our God in heaven, You are holy, righteous, faithful, loving, merciful, just, true, all powerful, all knowing, everywhere present; You are the Great I Am and with all that You are You love us unconditionally. Thank You Father for Your love. We pray one for another, asking that You will help us remember nothing can separate us from Your love; we pray we have the assurance Your love to us is amazing. You love us so much You will bless, instruct, correct, discipline, lead and direct us; But You will not force our will to be Your will, draw each one closer to You that we may know Your will is what’s best for us and we willingly say yes to Your will. We pray each one will desire to know Your Word and trust Your Word is our standing ground. We thank You in advance for the great things that will happen in this new day, we're ready for Your mighty move in our life, in Jesus Name, Amen
