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.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
O Lord, our God we thank You for our life, our health and our strength. We may have aches and pains, financial issues, broken hearts and troubled minds, but we thank You because we're still here to experience it all. The fact that we're still here means we still have work to do, so we asked that You will give us the strength and courage to press through the pain, press through the financial issues, press through the broken heart and troubled mind, press through the sickness--press through believing there is a blessing on the other side of through. Help us to know that praising You in advance for our victories is the fuel we need to press through. Worrying and complaining slows us down, worshiping and praising the Most High God renews our strength and gives us what we need to make it through. Help us to remember You made this day and nothing about this day will take You by surprise, You can handle it all. If by chance something happens that catches us by surprise, remind us to quickly call on the One Who's not surprised at all, the One Who knew it was coming and already has a plan in motion to work it together for our good. It's a great day today and by faith we shall look at our situations and call them good; We shall purpose in our hearts right now to rejoice and be glad in this day through it all, in Jesus Name, Amen.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Our Father, we thank You for the blessing and privilege to wake up to see another Monday. It’s a new day and we begin this day saying, “Thank You for all You’ve done for us!” We thank You for our life, health and strength. We thank You for all the mountains You’ve brought us over and all the valleys You’ve brought us through. We thank You for the understanding of the fact that You are the only true and living God. We thank You for revealing to us truth, for it is because of truth we are free. We shout out, Hallelujah!!! to our Lord, our God and our Savior. We pray one for another, asking You to give us the courage and strength to walk in our truth. Give us the courage to walk past discouragement, distractions and any attempt to take us off the course You have set before us. We purpose in our heart right now to show love one to another. We purpose in our heart to live to be a blessing and in all we do today, You be glorified. We will rejoice and be glad in this day, no matter what. We give You praise, in Jesus Name, Amen.

FRIDAY MORNING INSPIRATION:
HOW THANKFUL ARE YOU?
Are you thankful enough to wake up and say, “Thank You for waking me to see one more day!”
Are you thankful enough to smile even when it seems nothing is going right?
Are you thankful enough to laugh when the world says you should be crying?
Are you thankful enough to be grateful God brought you through; So grateful that you’re no longer angry at who caused you to go through?
Are you thankful enough to look for good in every situation and be thankful for the good?
Are you thankful enough to appreciate who God made you to be and just be happy being you?
We have so much to be thankful for, but here’s the thing, “Thankful” is an action word. Every day our Director yells, “Action!” How many times during the course of the day will He say, “Cut!” Action speaks louder than words. The life we live speaks louder than the words we speak. The life we live should speak, “Thankful”.
How thankful are you? Don’t speak it, BE it!

THURSDAY MORNING PRAYER:
O Lord we praise You for our life, health and strength. We worship You because You are everything we need You to be, You are the Great I Am. This is another day that You have made and because You made it You know all about it, so we pray each one trust the fact that nothing takes You by surprise and everywhere we go today we remember You're already there. We're praying for Wayland Washington, Kerwin Cox and Gladys Hunter, asking for Your mighty healing touch. We pray one for another, asking that You strengthen the weak, encourage the downhearted, heal the sick, deliver those in bondage --the fact of the matter is, whatever we need You to be, You are already that-- help us to trust the facts. Lord it's a beautiful day today, help us to not waste time dwelling on the things of yesterday. The things we keep thinking about and trying to work out, help us to resolve we can't, but You can--then cast it to You and get out of the Way. Help us to know we get in the way by playing tug of war or by riding the sea-saw, it's time to let go. It's hard letting go, it hurts letting go, it's scary letting go, but we'll never get through holding on. We pray each one purposes in our heart to do something today that brings glory to You, help us start by simply smiling. For those who find it difficult to smile we pray they remember, tomorrow is not promised to any of us, all we have is right now and because we're still here right now, we have a reason to smile. We give You praise in advance for the many victories we will experience today. We praise You in advance for peace in the middle of what we're going through. We praise You in advance for a 'right now' praise throughout this day, in Jesus Name, Amen.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Our Father in heaven, we thank You for waking us this morning to see another day. We thank You for Your loving kindness and tender mercies. Father, we begin this day saying there is none like You. No one else can touch our hearts like You do, we have tried many relationships, many situations, getting more money, stuff and things, but Lord still we have come to the conclusion there is none like You! We thank You Lord for loving us through the many times we thought we were on our own. We thank You for loving us through the times we insisted on doing things our way. We thank You for Your ever lasting love and for never giving up on us. Today is a new day, filled with new blessings, benefits and opportunities, let us not waste energy today concentrating on the things of yesterday, but instead, press forward today. We pray one for another, asking that You will give each one good eyes---eyes to see where You're leading us. Give us good ears -- ears to hear Your voice and only listen to You. A good mind -- a mind to worship and praise only You. Help us to bridle our tongues to speak no evil; Strengthen our hands and feet so that in all that we do and in everywhere we go today, we will bring glory to You. We thank You in advance for the many victories we will experience today, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
We praise the Name of Jesus! We thank You for being our Rock, our Fortress, our Redeemer, our Friend, our Comforter, our Shepherd, and our Peace. We thank You Lord for being our all in all. Without You Lord we could do nothing. Without You we would be nothing. Without You we have no hope. Without You we have no joy. Without You we don’t have the blessed assurance that we are more than conquerors in all things. Thank You Lord for this day filled with endless benefits and possibilities. We pray one for another, asking You to help us remember all of our help comes from You. Help us remember our faith is what fuels everything we hope for. It’s according to our faith that we’re healed. It’s according to our faith we are delivered. It’s according to our faith we can forgive and move on. It’s according to our faith our dreams can be reality. It’s according to our faith we will experience victory after victory today. Help us remember our right now faith can expect our right now God to exceed abundantly above all we ask or think. It’s a great day today and we shall rejoice and be glad in it, in Jesus Name, Amen.

THURSDAY MORNING PRAYER:
It’s another day’s journey and we’re glad about it! Lord we thank You for blessing us to see a new day. For some, yesterday was filled with disappointment, regret, frustration, pain, hurt and trouble, but still it was a great day. We are so thankful for today, another chance to do what we keep saying we’re going to do. We have another chance to forgive and live. We have another chance to stop fighting our calling and just be who You designed us to be. Lord, we’re looking ahead, purposing in our heart to keep moving forward. We shall remember our fight is not against flesh and blood. We shall remember we are The King’s children. We shall remember nothing shall separate us from Your love. We shall remember You are for us and that is more than the whole world against us. We shall remember our praise is our weapon! We shall remember this is the day our faithful God has made, so there is nothing left for us to do except rejoice and be glad in it, no matter what, in Jesus Name, Amen.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Our Father in heaven, we thank You for waking us to see another perfect day. It's perfect because You made it. It's perfect because You do all things well. It's perfect because all the days of our life we have never seen one day repeated. Everyday has been new and we give You praise for the newness of today. We offer praise to You because we are fearfully and wonderfully made, Your works are wonderful. We offer praise to You because there is nobody greater than You and because You live in us we are great, so we look forward to this day with great expectations. We lift Faye Richardson to You as she prepares for surgery. Lord, we ask that You will make Your presence known in the operating room, move mightily with Your healing touch and grant her peace. Lord, I ask also that you Bless my Aunt, Geneva Walker as we celebrate the Homegoing of Help her to remember that earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. We pray one for another, asking that You bless each one to remember today is already perfect and all we need to do is let our lights shine, give love one to another, stay away from all negativity, speak words that bring life and offer praise to our awesome God with the life we live. We praise the Name of Jesus and we thank You in advance for a victorious, prosperous, peaceful day, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Our Father in heaven, we thank You for life, health and strength. We thank You for Your unconditional love to us always. We thank You for another chance to say yes to Your will. We thank You for the endless benefits and possibilities this day holds. We pray each one will know we can do all things through Christ Who gives us strength and with God all things are possible. Knowing all we know about You, we pray each one will feel better about themselves, knowing we are children of the Most High God and our status is, favored. Where there is sickness, let us speak healing. Where there is doubt, let us speak with confidence. Where there is financial difficulty, let us speak prosperity.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Our Father in heaven, we thank You for the gift of life. We thank You Lord because we know it is in You that we live, we move and have our being. We thank You Lord because we know without You there is no way we could live. Without You there is no way we could love or be loved. Without You there is no way we could walk, talk, hear, see, taste, smell, rhyme or reason--You are the source of our strength and the strength of our lives, so we lift our hands in total praise to You. Lord we thank You because You keep doing great things for us; You keep extending new mercy morning by morning; You keep giving us chance after chance to decide it's time we place our lives in Your hands and let Your will be done in our lives. Lord, because You keep doing great things for us we offer a right now praise to You, we shout out, hallelujah!!! We're praying for Drew Colvin who is waiting on the miracle of a heart transplant. Lord, You are the God Who can do anything, including make his heart new; So we trust You to do this great healing in his life. Draw him closer to You that He may know He's in the hand of the Great I Am. Today there will be no whining, complaining, arguing, fussing, gossiping, or putting anyone down; Instead we will speak words that bring life, words that encourage, words that uplift, for we recognize our words are powerful! We praise You Lord for this beautiful day that You have made and we purpose in our hearts right now to rejoice and be glad in it, no matter what, in Jesus Name, Amen.
