Lent and Beyond: Prayer for South Carolina on Tuesday January 27th

Please pray for Her Honor Judge Diane S. Goodstein, the Diocese of South Carolina and its legal team, all those involved in the proceedings and for the growth of God’s Kingdom in South Carolina
The diocese is in an extended season of transition; awaiting the results of litigation.
God’s promises to Abram included land. I don’t know the nature of His promises to the Diocese of South Carolina.

Genesis 13:14-15
The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, “Lift up your eyes from where you are and look north and south, east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever.”

O God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
You are the God who gives hope for the future. Raise the vision of the Diocese of South Carolina, dear Lord, up to new spiritual horizons, to perceive the new realities You have planned for them. Help them to receive and live into Your revelation, for the blessing of the generations. Amen.

Please pray it all and there are more prayers for South Carolina here

    I have checked this website daily since early December, hoping to see a favorable ruling for the Diocese of South Carolina. I still hope to see it, since there is no way to know what circumstances the Judge may be dealing with, whether personally or in her office. I am praying for her, and for all of you in the Diocese. May God be with you as you wait, as He will surely be with you no matter the outcome.

    Yes, you are in our prayers. And I know that the Lord will lead you on to yet greater things, regardless of the court’s ruling.

    It seems that back on December 10 each side was to submit a “proposed decision and order.” I don’t think we’ve ever seen those. Are they available/accessible?

    When your people go to war against their enemies, wherever you send them, and when they pray to you toward this city you have chosen and the temple I have built for your Name, then hear from heaven their prayer and their plea, and uphold their cause.

    When they sin against you—for there is no one who does not sin—and you become angry with them and give them over to the enemy, who takes them captive to a land far away or near; and if they have a change of heart in the land where they are held captive, and repent and plead with you in the land of their captivity and say, ‘We have sinned, we have done wrong and acted wickedly’; and if they turn back to you with all their heart and soul in the land of their captivity where they were taken, and pray toward the land you gave their ancestors, toward the city you have chosen and toward the temple I have built for your Name; then from heaven, your dwelling place, hear their prayer and their pleas, and uphold their cause. And forgive your people, who have sinned against you.

    Now, my God, may your eyes be open and your ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.

    Now arise, Lord God, and come to your resting place,
    you and the ark of your might.
    May your priests, Lord God, be clothed with salvation,
    may your faithful people rejoice in your goodness.
    Solomon’s Prayer of Dedication – 2 Chronicles 6:34-41

    Lord God, bless the wonderful Diocese of South Carolina who repent and welcome you; have mercy upon them, save them from their enemies and build your temple again in their midst so that your glory may shine out to the nations in this place as a beacon on a hill, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

    It would be good to pray and fast for South Carolina during the day.
