ACFW Conference – Day 40 Prayer – God’s Presence & Blessing
Psalm 127:1 CEB – “Unless it is the Lord who builds the house, the builders’ work is pointless. Unless it is the Lord who protects the city, the guard on duty is pointless.”
Father God, everything we do is for You, to You, because of You, and in Your strength. So we boldly come before You to ask that Your presence and power would blanket and enfold this conference–prior to, during, and following the weekend of conference. We not only expect but seek Your presence, and are grateful for the promise that those who seek You find You if they search for You with all their hearts. The surroundings and the venue for the conference are beautiful. But they are not what attract us. It’s You. Corporately, we ask You to bless our going out and our coming in, our thoughts and conversations, all doors whether opened or closed to us, those who serve and those we serve. Pour Your blessings upon this gathering of Your writers, we pray, so that the very city itself feels the impact of Your presence in that place. Do the same in each of our hearts, Lord, and upon our writing efforts. In the strong Name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
