Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word and the truth that it contains. How I praise You for the faithfulness that You show to Your people Israel and for the goodness and grace You have bestowed on the Church. Thank You for the many lessons that I learn from Your Word - Your goodness and grace.. Your righteousness character - Your merciful nature and faithfulness towards Your people Israel - and Your love for the body of Christ. Keep me faithful in prayer for those in authority.. for kings and presidents.. for nations and for Your people Israel. Thank You that in Christ I have access to the throne of God for mercy to find help in time of need, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father how we rejoice in You for You are good and Your grace and mercy endures for ever. We give thanks to You and glory in Your holy name for Your glory reaches to the heavens and our hearts are filled with great gladness and joy. Thank You for sending Jesus to pay the price for our sins. Thank You that He is with us every moment of the day and thank You that He is coming again with great glory and majesty - and we worship and praise Your holy name for all Your goodness to us and all men - in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I confess that I have not only hurt other people, and especially those that are close to me, but I have offended You and ignored some of the warnings that I believe were directly or indirectly sent from You. Help me I pray to break free of this ungodly addiction and get on the road to recovery.
Forgive me Lord, for I have sinned against You and ignored the clear teaching of Your Word to live soberly, righteously and in the fear of the Lord and to walk circumspectly before You, as a child of the light. But I come to You in humble submission to ask You to help me to get on the road to addiction recovery, for I know that You have promised to lift-up all who come to You out of the miry pit, even when we have foolishly dug it for ourselves.
Help me be set free from alcohol, putting on the breastplate of righteousness, and for the helmet of salvation in Christ, in Whose name I pray,
How good it is to praise You Oh my God, and what a great and mighty God You are. You are worthy of all my worship and deserving of all my praise and I thank You for all You have done in my life and for keeping me safe throughout this day.
Be with me Lord, as I settle down for the night and thank You that in Christ I can dwell in safety. Thank You, Father, for the privilege of rest and sleep and I pray that You would surround us all with Your holy presence and protect us from all dangers of the night. In Jesus' name,
Praise Your name, O Lord most high. I glory at your wonderful creative power, but I wonder more at the amazing grace that You have shown to me in dying for me on Calvary’s cross. I pray that You will use me to tell out the glories of Your name, in the place where You have planted me. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
Dear Lord, what great hope and mystery surrounds this lovely time of the year, when the body of Christ specially remembers the first advent of our Lord Jesus with such anticipation. That wonderful time when You came into the world, so many years ago, as the King of Israel and Saviour of the world.
Lord, I know that it is not Your will that anyone should perish but that all should come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Who alone can save a dying world, lost in trespasses and sins.
Open the eyes and the hearts of those that are lost in their sins and blinded to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ. Visit those I pray, who have not yet accepted the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Convict those who have their attention fixed on the temporal things that are passing away. Lord, at this time of Advent when the people of the world are so busy in making preparation for a secular Christmas, I ask You to convict many hearts of their real need of Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
Bring many to a deeper understanding of the real meaning of Advent and Christmas. Help them to come to realise that this is a time of hope, as we remember when the eternal God became the perfect Man, and was born as a baby to die on a cross for the sins of the world. Help them to understand that He lived His life in the shadow of the cross, so that sinful man could be forgiven, by simply believing on His name. Look down in pity on all who do not know the Lord Jesus as Saviour, and may many be saved at this time. In Jesus' name,
Loving Heavenly Father, You put us into families and set a father as the leader and role model for each family, but Lord, there are many families that are being torn apart by a husband and father that has become addicted to alcohol.
Knowing the devastating nature of this disease, I pray that You would prompt each one to turn away from this evil habit to become the responsible husband and father that You desire each one to be.
Lord, we know that there are many alcoholic husbands that abuse their wives both physically and emotionally and that many children are also placed in danger due to abuse from an alcoholic father. And also Lord, we know that such drinking habits can often leave families with insufficient money to live on.
Protect all those that are vulnerable from all forms of abuse, and convict such men of the responsibilities of being loving husbands and dependable fathers. Lord, we pray that they turn from their evil ways to turn to the Lord Jesus, knowing that only in You is true freedom found.
Thank You Father. I commit all families that are in this position into Your safe-keeping. In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, I worship and praise You, for the greatness, power, splendour, glory, and majesty are Yours alone. May You be greatly honoured, for You are Head over all things and Judge of all men. Thank You for all You have done to redeem my life, and for bringing me into Your everlasting kingdom. May I never become too familiar with Who it was that hung on the cross for love of me. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
