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.
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,
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)
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.
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:
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.
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.
