   And they sing a new song, saying,

Worthy art thou to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and didst purchase unto God with thy blood men of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation, 10 and madest them to be unto our God a kingdom and priests; and they reign upon the earth.
Revelation 5:9-10
Jesus you are worthy.  Thank you for completing salvation's work on the cross.  Thank you for being willing to not only go to the cross but to willingly die there for me.  You purchased me with your blood.  Jesus you are worthy.  We praise your name.  Thank you for purchasing men and women, boys and girls of France.  Continue your work in France.  Increase the sound of praise from the hearts of France.  We praise you and thank you for making us a kingdom and priests unto God.  We pray in the Holy and powerful name of Jesus.  Amen.

La Fête du Muguet, La Fête du Travail


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. I Corinthians 15:58

Lord, We pray for the Church in France to be stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that they labour not in vain.  Lord, I pray the same prayer for us here at Praying for France, that we will continue to be stedfast, and continue to pray for the people of France.  Renew our vision, and our passion for the work You are doing in France.  Increase our love for the people of France.  Expand our borders and give us the wisdom to move from a place of pray into becoming Your hands and feet working among the people of France.  We pray in the name of Jesus.  Amen.

Sunday Prayers

Unity and diversity in the body

12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptised by[c] one Spirit so as to form one body – whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free – and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 And so the body is not made up of one part but of many.
I Corinthians 12:12-14. NIV UK 

Lord, Use the body of Christ in France as one body with many members working together to do Your Will.  Lord we pray that the each person will accomplish the role and purpose your created them to accomplish, and yet be one part of the whole.  Thank you for creating the body to be local and universal.  Use us to spread the gospel in France.  Put actions to our prayers.  We pray in the power of the name of Christ, the cornerstone and our groom.  Amen.

Sunday Prayer

The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. Proverbs 21:1


Good morning Lord,
Tomorrow is an important day in the Life of France.  People will be voting on a new leader.  Lord, we understand that You are even in control of these days as well and what ever happens tomorrow You will work it all out for your glory.  Lord, we pray that you will direct the hearts and minds of those voting tomorrow.  We pray, knowing you have a plan and a purpose for the people of France.  We ask that your body will grow and many will come to know the Lord in the next few years.  We pray for the freedom to pray for France and preach in France will continue so that we can share the Good news and be faithful servant who are doing your will until you come.  Father we will continue to be faithful and trust in You.

We pray in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Ile-de France

Yes, I know this year is not going as planned and I wonder why I am surprised.  To be honest not too many things go as I plan, but there is not much I can do about it, so as my husband says, "Just keep on going, "  So here on Praying for France we will just keep on praying, know that God's keeps on listening.

Over the next few weeks we will be praying for the region where Paris is located the Ile-de-France consisting of 8 departments and millions of souls.  We were in this region two years ago and there has been a great influx of people from around the world and decrease in locals.  To me it seemed like a different country then it was back in the late 80's.  Even though things change people are still in need of  a Savior.  So we keep on praying.

Father the world changes with new people, and new faces, but our hearts and souls, continue to need to know You as our personal Father, We continue to need Jesus your Son as our Lord and Savior, and we always need the power of Your Holy Spirit working and filling our lives.
Father thank you for what you are doing in the region of Ile-de-France.  Lord, continue to move in and through lives, changing hearts, cleansing souls, letting people be new creations in You. Continue to build by adding to the body of Christ daily.  Lord, let your love and power flood through the streets and lives of Paris, the surrounding neighborhoods and departments.  We pray all in the powerful name of Jesus.  Amen.
