Please join us in today’s prayer, written by a member of ACFW’s Forty Days of Prayer team.
God’s presence and blessing at the conference
Psalm 127:1–Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain.
Lord, we pray that even now a sense of your presence would begin to flood the “house,” our home for several days next month. May your light and your love rest on each doorknob, every table, every chair, every podium, every microphone, every piece of equipment. Permeate the walls and soak the carpet. Wrap this meeting area so close that those on site right now would already begin to sense a difference in that space.
Pour your blessing out on each person who comes, each person who presents, every detail of preparation and presentation. As each of us walks through the door of that hotel, may we sense your beauty so that we enter not just a hotel, not just another conference, but a house of worship and joy. May every word, spoken and written, flow from you. May we see you high and lifted up so that when we leave, we are not only better writers but changed people who wear your glow. Because we’ve been in your presence.
Thank you that you even now go before us to prepare this place. Amen.
