Last month I had some extra Isaiah 61 prints that I got to give away. It created some unexpected really sweet connections that I didn’t anticipate. I loved it so much, that I thought I would do it again.
If you can’t tell, I LOVE prints like this. Seriously Pinterest and Etsy are full of incredible prints for under $5. You just download the PDF and print it yourself. *Be careful when you decide to start browsing, this is a black hole my friends. lol. You may not come up for hours. Here is my “Printables” Pinterest Board >>
If a verse or word is significant to a particular season I love to find a print online and hang it in my house with the idea that each time I see it, it will prompt me to meditate on that truth and pray. I think of Eph. 5 where it says the “washing of the water of the Word.” I think this means reading the Word, re-reading it, asking the Lord to re-order my thinking to align with his thoughts, meditating on it until it sinks into my soul, letting the Word change me, praying it, and calling it into existence.
So “Shalom” came into focus for me when I was working on a website for Community Leadership & Development here in Billings. Their vision is “Seeking the Shalom of our City.” As I learned more about the concept and the original meaning it really moved it. Yes, it means “peace” but much more than that. It is the complete peace that is rooted in the wholeness and full restoration that only comes through Jesus.
I love to pray this. I pray it over my own life, over my family and my home, and over our city. I have found that prayer works best when we simply ask for what He has already promised. I love to find the promise scriptures in the Bible, and simply pray “Yes, Lord. Do this in my life.”
I went online to find a print and could not find one! So I made this one for our own home. When I was ordering prints I thought I would get extra for you guys. No cost. This is just for fun.
So, if you would like a “shalom” print, I would love to it send you. More than just that, I would love to come into agreement with you and pray this over you and your family. I am not promising hours of intercession here. But, I have a long road trip coming up on Friday. So while my big kids are watching movies in the back I will put on some worship music and dedicate my windshield time to praying for each of you by name.
Only ask here… I would love it if you all would pay it forward. If you want a print, I will send you 5. Then you can keep one for yourself and have 4 to give away to friends. I would love it if you would pray the same for them.
So just fill in your name, email and address at the bottom if you would like to be included. I have enough for up to 40 people total, and your request must be in by Friday.
I thought I would make Psalm 103 my focus. So these are the words I will pray over each of your lives:
1Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
6 The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses,
his deeds to the people of Israel:
8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of mortals is like grass,
they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children—
18 with those who keep his covenant
and remember to obey his precepts.
19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Praise the Lord, you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding,
who obey his word.
21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,
you his servants who do his will.
22 Praise the Lord, all his works
everywhere in his dominion.
Praise the Lord, my soul.
