Prayer pointers for Psalm 139

Father, you know all things. There's no area of our heart, soul, or strength that is hidden from you. You knew us before we were born and you know us still. We join your beloved people in praising you for your knowledge of us and your great love towards us in Christ. Make us agents of your love to those we know. Enable us, this week especially, to lavish our love on the families attending VBS. May everyone we know and love come to know the God who first knew, and continues to love, us... Father, there's nothing that could ever happen to us or our family, or our church family that escapes your purpose or evades your plans. Cause us to realize, cry out for, and treasure your presence with us. You have promised never to leave or forsake us; a promise secured in the crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension of Christ. Forgive our unbelief. Give your people great faith to apprehend you and trust you, that our joy in you may never diminish...

Father, even as we confess you know us, we ask that you would search us out. Cause your Holy Spirit to move within us, exposing our sin and causing us to rest in our Savior. By your Spirit we cry, "Abba, Father" and by your Spirit you are daily conforming us to the likeness of Christ. We thank you this work you began is a work you promise to complete. As we open your word this week, both personally, and corporately, and daily in VBS, may you use it mightily to accomplish your work in us and in your world....
