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.

THURSDAY MORNING PRAYER:

The greatness of the Lord in inconceivable . The love that He shows is unconditional. The power of the Lord is unbeatable . Great is the God we serve! God is great and greatly to be praised! Lord we thank You for this great day made by our great God. We thank You Lord because more and more every day we’re more and more convinced, there is none like You. Never has there been anyone who loves us like You do. Never has there been anyone who is as patient with us as You are. Never has there been anyone who is more forgiving. Never has there been anyone who knows exactly what we need, when we need it and promises to supply all our need. There is no one like our faithful God! We say again, “Great is the God we worship!” “Great is the God we praise!” “Great is the God we serve!” We’re going forth today fully aware of the fact that You're with us every step of the way. We’re going forth knowing greater is He Who lives in us, than he that’s in the world. We’re going forth declaring our status is, “More than conquerors”, which means in every circumstance and situation, WE WIN! We’re praying for a healing touch from You for Yvonne Harris. We’re praying for the Body of Believers and families, open our eyes that we may recognize the tricks and schemes of the enemy; the plan of the enemy is to divide, but Your will is that we have love one to another. Help us to say “NO” to all attempts to divide and “YES” to Your will. This is the day our God has made and we shall rejoice and be glad in it, in Jesus Name, Amen.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

We praise the Name of Jesus! We thank You for being our rock, our fortress and our deliverer, in You, O Lord do we trust. We thank You for waking us to see another new day. We thank You for assuring us, in Christ we are new creatures, old things have passed away, we praise You for making us new. We thank You for Your blood which will never loose its power. Help us to know there is no need to hold on to our past, You have our past covered; not only have You covered our past, but Your blood is so powerful, our today and tomorrows are covered as well…we praise You, Jesus! We pray each one will appreciate Your covering so much that we live a life that points back to You. We pray we live a life that will show those around us how grateful we are for Your amazing grace. We pray the life we live today will draw others to You. We pray each one knows we can’t be savior in anyone’s life, but we can lead them to the One Who can save AND work all things together for good. We lift our hands in praise to You and we thank You in advance for the victories we shall experience today, in Jesus Name, Amen.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER:

Oh Lord, our God, we worship, honor and adore You. You are holy, righteous, love...You know all, You have all power and You are everywhere at the same time. You continue to demonstrate to us how great You are and how much You love us; we could never repay You for all You've done for us. Your love to us is so amazing You never asked for payment, nor have You asked us to be worthy or deserving...we owe You every praise and heartfelt worship. We pray one for another, open our eyes of understanding that we may see Your love to us more clearly, help us to know Your heart, even when we don’t understand Your hand, and let our response be nothing but praise and worship. Your grace and mercy continues to keep us; let our response be nothing but love one to another. We pray for Carolyn Walker, her son and seven grandchildren who mourns the loss of their daughter-in-law/wife/mother; only You can be all they need right now; we thank You for peace. It's a great day to see the beauty You've provided all around us, rejoice and be glad, in Jesus Name Amen.

FRIDAY MORNING INSPIRATION:

OH…NOW IT’S TIME TO PRAY?

We let them take prayer out of school, God out of the courts, Christ out of Christmas; but now it's time to pray?

We don't pray in our homes as we should, we laugh, talk and walk during prayer in church; but now it's time to pray?

The Bible says, "Pray without ceasing" and we have taken that to mean: when trouble comes, a bill is due, sickness surfaces or a war is threatened; it's time to pray!!!!

Really? If we stay ready, we don't have to get ready. What part of "pray without ceasing" or "men ought always to pray" don't we understand?

It’s always time to pray!!

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

Our Father in heaven, we worship You O mighty God…there is NONE like You. We are encouraged because we know You love us and Your Word is true. We’re encouraged because You promised to always be with us. We’re encouraged because greater are You Who lives in us than all the struggles, pressures, sadness, trouble, heartache, confusion, distress, betrayal, tricks and schemes in this world. We pray one for another, asking You to remind us during hard times to encourage ourselves in the Lord. We can encourage ourselves in the Lord for we know when we’re weak, because You live in us, we are strong. We’re going forth today determined to stand in the midst of it all, and having done all, we will continue to stand. We’re standing believing the giants in our life will fall. We’re standing believing no weapon formed against us shall prosper. We’re standing being confident in this, You began the good work in us and You will carry it on until completion…we have the victory!! In Jesus Name, Amen.

Sometimes you have to encourage yourself. Sometimes you have to speak victory during the test. And no matter how you feel, speak the word and you will be healed; speak over yourself, encourage yourself in the Lord. Sometimes you have to speak the word over yourself, the pressure is all around, but God is a present help. The enemy created walls, but remember giants, they do fall; speak over yourself, encourage yourself in the Lord.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER:

How great are You, O mighty God. We thank You for this new day. We thank You for goodness, kindness, mercy, and grace. We thank You for being the source of our strength and the strength of our life. Thank You for loving us through all of our circumstances and situations and bringing us out stronger, better and wiser. Thank You for refusing to let us go, but always calling us to a higher place of praise. Our desire is to love You more and more each day. We want Your love in us to shine outward everywhere we go. Father, continue to draw us closer to You and help us surrender our will to Your will. We want all You have for us; You have a plan for our life, we want it…lead, guide and direct us in Your way. Father, we invite You to get Yourself glory in our life today, in Jesus Name, Amen

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
O Lord, our God, just for Who You are…we worship, honor and adore You,; we magnify and praise Your Name for all You continue to do for us. We thank You Lord for waking us to this new day. We thank You for providing air to breathe and for blessing us to keep breathing. We thank You for the place we call home and for blessing us with the comforts in our home. We thank You for running water, food, clothing and means of transportation….be it car, bus, bike, scooter, wheelchair or walking, we are able to travel from place to place. You have done as You said and provided our need; we pray each one will be thankful for all we have and not complain because we don’t have all we want. We are blessed and we owe You a lifestyle of praise…we pray our testimony becomes, “Praise is what I DO!” We pray today be the day eyes are opened and each one who reads this prayer will truly see You for Who You are and purpose in our heart to live a “thankful to You” life. We pray all we come in contact with today, will know we have a relationship with You, by the way we walk and talk. We know You know what’s best for us, give us the courage to trust You and let You do what’s best. We pray for Sister, Jackie Williams as she is being prepped for emergency surgery on her spleen, let Your Good and Perfect Will be done , in Jesus Name, Amen.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
O Lord, our God, how excellent is Thy Name in all the earth. How precious and great are Your thoughts towards us; we can’t count the number of times You gave us peace in the midst of confusion, joy in the middle of sorrow, and hope when we couldn’t see our way…thank You for being our Shepherd, always taking good care of us. Father, sometimes we’re hard-headed and we insist on doing things our way… thank You for refusing to give up on us. Thank You for the purpose You have for our life, help us to know it’s a good plan with a great end and the benefits are endless. We pray one for another, help us Lord…see the need of each eye who reads this prayer…help us Lord. We are weak, but we give all praises to You because You are mighty and it just makes sense to walk in the strength You provide. Open our eyes that we may see how foolish it is to refuse Your strength and go in our own strength; give us the courage to accept all You provide and trust Your position in our life. We thank You for knowing what this day will bring and for already having a plan in place to bring us through victoriously, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

Our Father in heaven, we worship You O mighty God, there is none like You. Jesus, we give You praise, because without You, the Father couldn’t look at us and see forgiven. Lord, we are so glad we know You for ourselves and we declare by faith, there is none like You. We thank You for this new day. We thank You for new mercy. We thank You for the grace to make it through this day victoriously. We thank You for making sure all of our need is supplied. We thank You for forgiving us, we thank You for good health, we thank You for family and friends. Father, we thank You for leading us, directing us and protecting us. We have so much to thank You for and we are so grateful for Your constant presence in our life. You promised to never leave us and You’ve kept Your Word; because of Your Word, goodness and mercy follows us everywhere we go. Your presence in our life deserves our recognition; we pray each one will recognize the presence of our Holy God throughout this day and govern ourselves accordingly. It’s a great day and we shall rejoice and be glad, in Jesus Name, Amen.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER:

Oh Lord our God, Your greatness is inconceivable; Your love to us is unconditional and Your power is unbeatable; You are great and greatly do we praise You! Lord we thank You for another day to sing praises to Your Name. We thank You for a mind to worship You and a heart to show love one to another. We pray each one declares today, “I have work to do!” No time to deal with foolishness. No time to discuss things we cannot change. No time to rehash what happened, who was right and who was wrong. No time to hold grudges; But it’s time to get to work! It’s time to work on being who we are and doing all we’ve been assigned to do. It’s time to work on why we’re still here. It’s time to show the world You by living out our purpose. We thank You Lord for a mind to work, in Jesus Name, Amen.
