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
“{A Song or Psalm of David.} O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.”

Prayer For Those That Are Addicted To Smoking

Heavenly Father we bring before Your throne of grace all those that are seriously embroiled in any destructive addictions and particularly those that have become addicted to smoking.

Lord we know that anything that is able to overtake a persons will and cause them to become physically or emotionally dependent on it, is not Your will for their life – for our dependence and sufficiency is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Lord I know that in their own strength, no one will be able be set free from a smoking addiction – but Your grace is sufficient to deal with any addiction and Your strength to overcome the obsession with smoking is made perfect when people are prepared to hand over their addictions to You and to surrender their obsessive habits into Your safe-keeping.

Father I pray that You will be gracious to all those that are seeking Your face on this matter and who are prepared to turn their smoking obsession over to You and move forward in their lives in Your strength – by the power of the Spirit and in the name of Jesus,

Amen
“Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.”
