Prayer For Alcoholic Son

Father, I thank You for the many blessings that You have graciously bestowed on me, and in such abundance, but Lord my heart aches for my son, who has become so addicted to alcohol causing his life to almost spiral out of control.
 
Lord I am powerless to do anything to help him and he seems so lost and in so pain and I beg You Father to intervene in his life and show us what we can do to get things under control.. help him to break free of this terrible addiction and get back some semblance of normality due to this into this heart-rending situation.
 
Lord I know that You have plans for my son and yet he has strayed so far from the path of Your choosing – but Father I pray that in Your grace and mercy You would show us what to do to free him from His addiction to alcohol. Give me Your strength of Your mighty power to support his through this difficult time and help him I pray to break free from his alcoholism – and to You be all the praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name,
 
Amen

Eternal Gratitude For the Free Grace of God

Loving heavenly Father, how my heart bows before You in humble and sincere gratitude for all the many blessings that You have bestowed upon me – for the life that You have given me and the way that You have sustained me and cared for me, for which I offer You my grateful thanks. `

Thank You for my family and friends, my community and church and all the wonderful ways that You have led and guided us through both the joyful times and the difficult seasons of life.

Thank You for the wonderful world into which we have been placed and the beauties that surround us - the sea and the sky and the hills and the valleys – for all the delights that You have placed in our lives in such abundance.

Thank You most of all for sending us the Lord Jesus to die on the cross so save us from our sins – covering us with His own perfect righteousness and raising us up to sit with Him in heavenly places, when we deserve nothing but punishment. Lord we are not worthy to untie Your shoe-laces and yet in Your great grace and mercy You have freely given us all things to richly enjoy. Words cannot express the gratitude that is in my heart. Help me Lord to be the person You would have me be.. in Jesus name I pray,

AMEN

Prayer For Women Planning An Abortion

Heavenly Father we know that every good and perfect gift comes from You and that children are a special heritage from the Lord. But Father, we also know that the enemy of our soul seeks to kill and destroy all that is from You, and especially the lives of little babies in the womb.

And so we lift up all women who may be planning to have an abortion, or who have been deceived into thinking that this is a woman’s right, rather than a sin against their creator God – and we pray that You would create in their hearts a desire to do what is right and a realisation of the evil that surrounds the practice of abortion, that they themselves are considering

Bring into the life of each mother those that would give godly counsel and change the hearts of those who have already made a decision to go down the route of abortion.

Instil in the heart of each woman a deep love for the baby they are carrying and we pray that many may be prompted to turn from their planned abortion and look to the Lord Jesus.. for the grace do what is right - this we ask in Jesus name,

Amen

Praise for the First and Second Advents of the Lord

Dear Father God, how we rejoice when we call to our minds the glorious truth that the eternal Light of the world came to earth as a baby to become the Redeemer of mankind – to give His life for a lost world and to pour peace and hope into the hearts of a people who were estranged from their Creator God.

Father may our lives reflect His love as we look back in time to the first Advent of our Lord and Saviour – but let us never forget that there is a future Advent – a second coming when the earth will be filled with the glory of God once again – as the waters cover the sea.

Lord we know that You are returning and not as a tiny baby lying in a humble manger and wrapped in swaddling clothes but as a conquering King Who is to come to rescue His people Israel.

But Lord we know that first You are to come in the clouds to take Your church back to Your heavenly home – when the dead in Christ will rise first and we will all be changed in a moment - to become like unto You Lord Jesus.

Lord I pray that Your Church will prepare herself for Your soon return. Lord I pray that Your Body will be ready for that glorious day when You come to take us home to be with Yourself. Lord I beseech You that Your bride – who is the Church will be pure and holy, without spot and wrinkle or any such thing.. and Lord.. start that work in ME I pray, in Jesus name

Amen

Parent’s Prayer Of Gratitude on Graduation Day

Heavenly Father, the past few years seem to have sped by and here we are preparing for the graduation of our precious child.. who not so long ago was a helpless babe in our arms.
 
 Thank You for this child that You gave us to care for and nurture and as they face the unknown future we pray that You would draw very close to them and lead and guide in the days that lie ahead.
 
Our own hearts are a mixture of contrasting emotions: - pride in their achievement and concern for their future well-being. But we do pray that this graduation ceremony would be a special time of celebration and that nothing would mar the joy and excited anticipation we are feeling.. despite the inevitable tinges of apprehension.
 
As our child reaches this important milestone in their life we ask for Your continued presence to lead and to guide in all things.. and as they step out into the unknown world of new responsibilities and life-challenges, we finally hand them completely over into Your safe-keeping and ask that Your presence will accompany them and that they continue to grow in grace and draw ever closer to You with each passing day – this we ask in Jesus name

Prayer For My Unsaved Grandma

Dear Lord, I just want to bring my dear Grandma to You. Lord she has always put off making a commitment to follow You and to trust in Jesus as saviour – but Lord she is advancing in years and probably does not have much longer in this world.

Lord I love my grandmother and I know that You do too - and I also know that it is not Your will that anyone should perish but that all should come to repentance – please Lord.. visit her and I pray and Lord I do pray that she will accept the Lord Jesus as her personal Saviour, before it is too late. In Jesus name I pray,

The Lord Jesus took little children in His arms of love and blessed them and I pray that in a very special way You would put Your arms of love and blessing around this little one and minister to each need and every pain.

Little ones do not understand why they are feeling so poorly and I just ask that You would have compassion for this little child and take away any fear and pain - and multiply Your grace so that they come to a quick and lasting recovery….

Thank You Lord in Jesus name we pray,

Amen
“While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.”

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

“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”

Prayer For Forgiveness After and Abortion

Heavenly Father we lift up all those women and mothers whose hearts are aching because of their decision to have an abortion and who are now riddled with guilt, because of their choices.

We also lift up those whose freely chose to abort their babies, based on their own selfishness attitude.. thinking that a baby in their life would spoil the prearranged plans they had made or inhibit their desired destiny.

We pray Your mercy and forgiveness over each one and ask that in a very special way You would come alongside each woman who has made a decision to terminate their pregnancy – and meet each one at their very point of need.

Comfort those that are grieving, support those that are weak and convict those that have rejected the sacredness of a human life – and bring each one we pray, to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus, and an assurance of Your gracious forgiveness. This we ask in Jesus name.

Amen

“Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.”
