Praying for Indian Springs

Our wonderful researcher, Ginny, said she had a hard time finding much background information about Indian Springs, so if you know anything not included here, we would love to hear it! I noticed they refer to themselves as a village and not as a town or city. My husband briefly attended Indian Springs School, which is mentioned in the background info we do have, as a child.

II Thess. 3:3-5 – “But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. We have confidence in the Lord concerning you, that you are doing and will continue to do what we command. May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ.”

Lord God, we praise You for Your faithfulness to us and for Your protection over us. We pray that You would let Your faithfulness be on display in the town of Indian Springs. As they strive to protect and enhance the atmosphere of their community, would You cause them to recognize it is only by Your grace and protection that they are preserved from evil? We pray You would continue to protect the people of Indian Springs not only from crime and accidents, but also and especially from the enemy of their soul, the evil one.

We pray for Mayor Bell-Guercio and the city leaders. May they look to You for everything that concerns them and their town. May their hearts be lined up in accordance to Your Word and Your will. We pray You would direct their hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ.

We pray that You would bless the residents of Indian Springs to know You and the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge. May it transform their lives, their families, their neighborhoods and churches, and their town. We pray Your grace would be poured out on each person. Bring salvation, deliverance and blessing through Your Son. May the peaceful atmosphere of Indian Springs be caused by the true peace of Christ ruling in their hearts.

We pray these things in Your mighty name, Amen.
