Let Us Rejoice!

wfw image

Welcome to a brand new year of Word-filled Wednesdays, where we are going to bring you a Scripture graphic along with an opportunity to pray out the word together. There is nothing more powerful than a God's people moving together in prayer.  So as a group of women (and men) on our knees, we're going to take the Word, under the leading of the Holy Spirit, and learn how to intercede for those needs we face every day with the heart of God as our guide. We encourage you to journal the Word along with us and be creatively inspired as we See & Pray in 2013. 

PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS as to how WFW will look beginning February 6th, 2013. We will post a verse each WEEKEND that we will SHARE AS A COMMUNITY on the following Wednesday.

  The Word…

 

Revelation 19:6-8

    Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,
    “Hallelujah!
    For the Lord our God
        the Almighty reigns.
    Let us rejoice and exult
        and give him the glory,
    for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
        and his Bride has made herself ready;
    it was granted her to clothe herself
        with fine linen, bright and pure”—
    for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.
(Revelation 19:6-8 ESV)

Now Prayed…

Lord, thank you for your Word! Thank you Lord for showing us what you have for those who believe in you! Thank you for the HOPE that is you!

Lord life on earth is challenging and so often overwhelming. I know that you want me to play a part in your plan, but sometimes my own situations and circumstances cloud my view. Help me Lord to see just how glorious and grand your plans are; plans that are eternal. Father, help me not to focus on this life and  what the world tells me to center my attention on but rather help me to focus my heart and gaze on you! Help me to read what the Word proclaims. Those who join you Lord are celebrating that your will has been done! Help me to remember that YOUR WILL is what I want to sumbit to in all that I do and say. Lord help me to follow in faith, help me to be obedient and help me Lord to live with a rejoicing spirit; one that gives YOU and YOU alone glory every, single day. I know Jesus that I can not do this in my own power. I need you Lord. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness and your promises!

In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

Join In…

Feel free to share this prayer or write your own in the comment section here.

Beginning February 6th, we are inviting all of our WFW participants to join us in praying and illustrating the SAME WORD each week. We will choose a verse/Scripture that we will illustrate and pray together, hoping that we glean from each other.  

 

**************************************************************

If you're just joining us, WFW is looking a bit different this year. Please see how the Lord is leading us in 2013.

Since it's inception, the purpose of Word filled Wednesday is to share God’s word through photo, or graphic image combined with a verse from the Bible. As a new year begins, we feel that the Lord is asking us to take that Word and apply it to our daily prayer lives. We are thrilled to announce the introduction of our newest Counter, Word Filled Wednesday ~ See & Pray. You are encouraged, as in the past, to:

Download it,
Read it,
Print it,
Share with others!

And now we are hoping that you'll join us in "seeing and praying" that Word. 

What does that mean? 

It means that after much prayer and reflection, we feel that the Lord is asking us to take His Word and apply it to our weekly prayer life. We want to use the graphic images and translations to do just that; join each other in centering our prayers around the weekly Word. 

If you would like to share the "graphic of the week," please feel free to do so on your personal blog and link back to ICDevos so that we can encourage women to join us as pray through the Word. We are also encouraging women to link on Wednesday beginning February 6th, (just as you have done in the past) or any other day of the week, their personal reflections and/or prayers using the Scripture highlighted in the graphic as part of those prayers. We know that prayer is simply talking to God and the Word of God is our source of inspiration and meditation for those prayers. Please feel free to share your own Scripture graphic highlighting THE SCRIPTURE of the Week. 

It's our hope that as a community we can encourage each other to use the Living Word as a place for powerful prayer to begin. As a new year dawns, it is the perfect time to rededicate Word Filled Wednesday to praying this powerful Word and encouraging women as they talk to Jesus.  

WFW Disclaimer

Please understand WFW is a love offering to Christ. Our art, our photography, our verses, our prayers. WFW is a way of remembering HIS word. IT’S ALL ABOUT HIM.

We ask that you join us in keeping  WFW for what it always has been.

WFW is to share the word of God – Jesus Christ.

We love the creative expression that God reveals Himself thorough and we understand that visual Scripture graphic can be an inspiration and a way to encourage meditation on that Word.  We want to encourage our particiapants to share each week. Share how this Word applies to your life, share your own graphic of this Word, encourage others with written prayers centered on the Word of the week. 

WFW is about celebrating the gift of creativity through God's Word.

We pray that WFW can be a place where women can come for a bit of visual inspiration and encouragement from the Father as we pray the powerful Word together.

 

 

Lori MacMath

Lori's daily mantra includes praying, "I will take it Lord, ALL you have to give," and a commitment to live out Colossians 3:17 daily. It's her prayer that the energy that fills her spirit be with her till her dying breath! Nearly two years ago, Lori traded the sauna of the Deep South, for the snow of Chicago. After 19 years in Atlanta, Lori has bought herself a coat and some winter boots and is ready for the NEXT adventure at Harvest Bible Chapel / Chicago West. She navigates this road with her husband of 26 years and they have 3 children, ranging in age from 17 - 22. She seeks daily to be creative and use the gifts the Lord has given her. With the heart of an artist and a spirit to live intentionally missional, Lori strives daily to see Him in all that surrounds her. Encouraging women on their daily walk with the Lord is her passion! She has recently stepped out into NEW territory with her husband in the inner city of Chicago. She is on staff at Harvest Chicago West, in the Austin neighborhood, where the Lord is opening her eyes to Urban Ministry and Discipleship. Lori and her husband also have a Business as Missions endeavor that helps empower women and missionaries around the world. She would be HONORED if you'd visit Hope Products International where providing HOPE to the world through fair trade and sustainable products. Lori has served in a number of roles over the years, ranging from Camp/Leadership Adventure Coordinator, a mid week Bible club for elementary and upper elementary students in a local public elementary school as well as being on staff at her church. She is excited in this season to watch the Lord unfold HIS plans for the next step on the journey. Helping others, loving others where they are and seeing the transforming power of Jesus is at the heart of all she does. Her heart for children, women and all those on the broken road is at the core of everything she does. She LOVES playing graphically and encouraging others through visual arts, and her passion for Discipleship is at the heart of all she does. It truly inspires her and fills her spirit.

  3. Oh I like the idea of a scripture on the weekend to meditate on. I wasn't sure how reading and writing it in one day was going to work – although it could. Bless You!

  4. AMEN!

    I really LOVE this new idea to SEE and PRAY together, united as one! Although I probably will not be participating, I will be praying along with you, when this new verse comes each weekend and on that Weds. Looking forward to how others particpate! Praying that ALL is well and this goes well!

    This one today is an excellent example! 

    Lord, Thank You that we can come and rejoice in Your Word and how we stand united together in one accord…praying, interceding, glorifying You! Hallelujah! For You, Almighty God reign. Reign in us, rain upon us with Your Holy Spirit! Reign in my heart and spring forth from me in ACTION! I exalt You! I give You all the glory! May I prepare myself with others in the church for Your return. May I boldly share You and Your Truth with others so that they too may be ready when You come! May our ears and eyes be opened to see You more clearly, hear You more intently, and move in Your Spirit more completely, in everything intentionally. I need You and I believe Your promises in Your Word! Clothe me Lord, in a garment of praise as I worship and come before You more humbly each day, ready to receive You, My King and Lord! Thank You for this Word alive in Jesus Christ and in us!

    Hallelujah! peace in Christ,

    Peggy
