Prayer For The Church To Be Sanctified

Father, we pray that as members of the body of Christ we may learn to be imitators of You and to walk in love, with one another.. just as the Lord Jesus Christ loved us and gave Himself as an offering and sweet-smelling sacrifice - holy and acceptable to God.

Thank You Father that in Christ we are children of the light. May we walk in the light of the Lord, Who is the Way, the Truth, the Light and the Life - and Lord we know that Your purpose for the Church is to transform each one into the likeness of the Lord Jesus – until He is all in all.

We pray that as member of His body we may walk in all goodness and righteousness and live a life that is honoring to You. Teach us we pray to do only those things that are pleasing in Your sight and we ask that every member of the body of Christ may be sanctified – set apart unto You and cleansed with the washing of the water by the word of God, and made holy in thought word and deed.

We pray that the Church may be purified by the Spirit of power, so that she may be without spot or wrinkle or any such thing – but holy and blameless before You in love – We ask this in Jesus name

Amen

“Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.”

Prayer Of Protection Those With Dementia

Look down in pity and mercy on all that are suffering with the illness of dementia. Father we know that although our loved ones may not recognise the family and friends who love them dearly – Your Holy Spirit can commune with their human spirit in a unique and Godly way – which must be very precious to Your heart.

Father I ask Your protection on those that are suffering with this debilitating mental disease and pray that You will minister to the emotional and spiritual of those we love, with all forms of this mental illness.

Thank You Father that in the power of Your Holy Spirit, You can touch the heart of those that have lost the memories of those that are their nearest and dearest. Comfort those that feel excluded from a loved one with dementia, in the knowledge that Your grace is sufficient.

Thank you,

Amen.
“Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

That They Learn To Trust Jesus as Saviour

Heavenly Father I lift us each of my grandchildren to You and thank You for each life that is so special in Your sight. Lord I pray that each one will come to know Christ as Saviour early in their lives and desire a close walk with You through their teens and twenties and into adulthood.

May they learn to love Your Word and to come to know the value of prayer in their lives so that they grow up into men and women that live godly in Christ Jesus,

Lord I pray that all of us that have a touch on these young lives will teach them day by day about the Lord Jesus and the wonderful truths in Your Word – both in word and by example - just as the mother and grandmother of Timothy taught him the truth of the Word of God. Guide each of my precious grandchildren into all truth and bring them into true saving faith I pray… for You have promised that children that are brought up in the way that they should go will not depart from it as they grow older..

Keep each one I pray under the shadow of Your protection and love and may they grow in grace and discernment and wisdom throughout their lives – and use each one I pray in Your service I pray, to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen

Prepare Our Hearts In This Time Of Advent

Heavenly Father thank You for the opportunity for us to once again examine our hearts during this lovely time of Advent, and the faith in Christ Jesus that we confess.

Keep our hearts aglow with love for Jesus and help to wonder more and more about amazing the grace that You have shown towards sinful man, in sending Your only begotten Son to come to earth, as a tiny human baby - so that He could bear the punishment for the sins of the whole world on His holy shoulders.

It never ceases to amaze us that Christ Jesus should set aside His heavenly glory and be conceived of the Holy Spirit by the virgin Mary, birthed into the human family as the promised Seed of the woman and be worshipped as a tiny baby in a humble stable at Bethlehem, by simple shepherds and singing angels alike.

It was Love incarnate that visited the earth so many years ago and that same love that saved us from our sins and came to dwell within the hearts of all that trust in Jesus as Saviour. Heavenly Father, accept our grateful sacrifice of praise – and may we come to know You more and love You better in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name we pray,

Amen
“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;”

Prayer For Purity Of Heart and Humility

Heavenly Father - the Lord Jesus Himself said that those that are pure in heart are truly blessed, but Lord I know that of myself I can never attain the standard of purity that You require. Lord, I know that only as I allow the Holy Spirit to live in me, work through me – to teach and train me will I come to that purity of heart that only comes from You – as You conform Your children into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus.

Lord for too long I have been smugly comparing myself advantageously with others around me, and believing that I was pure in Your eyes - but now that I have come to realise that the only standard to which You are comparing me is the Lord Jesus, I humbly kneel before You, at the foot of Your throne and ask your forgiveness for my self-indulgent pride and ego-centricity. May I look to Jesus and live as He lived in spirit and truth – seeking only to do Your will and to live a life that honour You.

Search my heart and purify my thoughts and may Your indwelling Holy Spirit identify any pride and self-importance that is lurking within, and conform me day by day into the likeness of the Lord Jesus – and help me to make the right choices in my life.. the choices that honour You, in Jesus name I pray,

Amenm You – as You conform Your children into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus.

Prayer To Purify My Heart Unto God

Purify my heart O Lord my God, for I love and trust You and desire to be set apart unto You, in holiness and righteousness all the days of my life. I desire to be holy for You are holy and You have called all Your children to be set apart unto You and to be refined in the refining fires of Your purifying love and unimaginable grace so that I may come forth as pure gold in Your sight.

Lord it is my chief desire to be set apart unto You, “holy unto the Lord,” and ready to do Your will. Lord I cannot do this in my own strength, but only in the power of the Holy Spirit, Who alone can take my bruised and bloodied heart and change me from the inside out to become more and more like Jesus. May I like Him walk in spirit and truth and help me to seek to do only those things that are pleasing in Your sight and honouring to Your holy name. Guide me into all truth help me to lay aside all the encumbrances of this world that hinder my pursuit for purity. I ask this in the name of my precious Saviour, Jesus Christ my Lord.

Amen

“Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:”
