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:

BE TRUE TO YOURSELF
You can fool some of the people, some of the time; but you can’t fool God and you can’t fool yourself. You know the truth about you; good, bad or indifferent.
You know why you did what you did; you know the lies you’ve told; you know the uncaring smiles you’ve shared

You know when your motive were pure, but misunderstood; you also know when you did it for the pat on the back. You know how hard you tried to shake the distraction; you also know when you enjoyed being the distraction.

You know what you like and dislike; stop doing what you don’t like to impress people!
Think about this, trying to make me happy does nothing for you. Wait! It does do something for you; it frustrates, angers, tires, and disregards YOU.

If you’ve said: “I always have to do this”; or “After all I’ve done and you . . .”; or “I did all of that, I should get better treatment”. Check your motive, at some point you were not true to yourself. If you have to remind anyone of ALL you’ve done you didn’t do it because that’s what you wanted to do; you did it for attention or pay back.

Slow down; stop being so busy all the time. Take some time to get to know you and you will discover, you are beautifully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are the works of our faithful God. When God made you, He broke the mold; there is no one else like you. Do the world a favor; be true to yourself by enjoying being YOU.

THURSDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Our Father, our Lord, our Savior, our King we offer praises to You! You are the only true and living God and we love You! Thank You for opening our eyes to see another day filled with Your goodness, kindness, mercy and grace. We don't know what today will bring, but we're excited because our lives are in Your hands and we know we're in good hands. We're in the hands of our loving God Who promised to never leave us or forsake us. We're in the hands of God Almighty and You're never intimidated by any circumstance or situation. We pray each one trusts You enough to obey Your voice and follow Your lead. There is so much going on around us, so many are going through and some are at the point of almost giving up--Lord, help us remember Who You are in the midst of it all. Help us remember all the many times You brought us through. All the many times You did what man said couldn't be done. All the many times we thought we wouldn't make it through, but You spoke peace and gave us the strength to ride through the storm. You are a mighty God and we praise You for loving us with all Your might. Today is a great day, give us the courage to give You great praise, believing our victory lies in our "right now" praise. In Jesus Name, Amen.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Bless the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me! Lord we bless Your holy Name! You are a mighty God and we praise You because You keep doing great things for us. We praise You because You not only hear our prayers, but You answer our prayers. You’ve given us peace in the midst of storms. You’ve touched and healed our body. You’ve set the captives free. You’ve regulated minds and fixed hearts. There is none like You in all the earth, so we worship You for Who You are, all the time. Lord, things don’t always work out the way we pray, but in every situation help us to lean not to our own understanding and continue to trust You with all our heart. We’re praying for the Sweeney family as they mourn the passing of their mother. Lord, envelop them with Your peace and let them know Your promise to never leave them includes in times like these. We Pray for our Pastor, Apostle Rebecca Berry and our ministry, as we prepare for Annual Conference, Bless as only you can. We pray one for another; draw each one closer to You that we may experience more of You. Lead us to the one who is ready to be blessed by the words we speak and the actions we take, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
We praise You Jesus! We shout out “hallelujah!” because You are an incredible God and You absolutely deserve incredible praise! Lord we thank You for waking us this morning to hear the alarm clock. We thank You for opening our eyes and letting us see the bed You blessed us to rest in. We thank You because the blood is still running warm through our veins, our lungs are still breathing in and out, our heart is still beating and we still have the ability to think, rhyme and reason. Lord some are healthier than others, but we still say thank You because we’re alive and we have the privilege to say yes to Your will one more day. We pray one for another, asking that You will reveal to each one what we need to do today. Give us the strength to not waste any time stressing over things that just don’t matter. Help us to see plainly where our focus is and if we’re not focusing on pleasing You, it’s time to adjust our focus. Time is winding up, we pray each one will become more and more serious and determined to move forward with our assignment. We pray each one is prepared for the distraction today and purpose in our heart, “It will not work!” Today is a great day and we’re expecting greater things from our great God, in Jesus Name, Amen.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER:

O give thanks unto the Lord for He is good! YES He is good!! We praise You O Lord! We magnify Your Name! You are the Great I Am; there is no body, no situation, no demon You cannot handle; so we're using our God-given common sense and trusting You IN and through all this day. We pray one for another, asking that You help us to trust You more. Help us to be sensitive to Your voice and not be distracted by the noise around us. We pray our praise to You will go forth this day in all we say and do. Help us remember when You speak things and people change; give us the courage to let You do more speaking in our in our life and we do more trusting and praising, because with You speaking the victory always belongs to us, in Jesus Name Amen.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
We praise the Name of Jesus! We thank You for being our rock, our fortress, our deliverer, our healer, our peace and our hope. Without You we are nothing, can do nothing and we have nothing to look forward to. We thank You for this new day You privileged us to be a part of; because of You we have great expectations. We expect to have peace; we expect to have joy; we expect to receive blessings; we expect to be a blessing; we expect everywhere we go today our light will shine to make someone’s day brighter. We pray one for another, asking You to help us let brotherly love continue. We pray You mend broken hearts, bring peace to confused families and restore damaged relationships. We are willing vessels; use us as a channel to be a blessing to Your people. We have Your power, so we will let nothing steal our joy, no situation distract us; and we will make no deals with the enemy, we are already more than conquerors, in Jesus Name, Amen.
