Prayer for 1 Corinthians 1 ►
Oh Lord our God what a joy it is to open my eyes in the morning and to remember all of Your loving-kindness towards us all - and for the many gifts and graces that we enjoy day by day.
Thank You for shelter from the cold and for the rest and refreshment that is gained with a good nights sleep. Thank You for the joy of opening my eyes to a fresh day, where Your mercies are new every morning – what a wonderful and faithful God You are.
Thank You for my health and my home. Thank You for my family and my friends. Thank You for the many good gifts that You have been pleased to bestow on all Your children. Oh, thank You that You are my Father and that Christ Jesus is my Saviour –and thank You Lord, that I have the indwelling Holy Spirit to lead and to guide – to comfort and help - for I am never alone because You are ever by my side… Praise Your holy name for all the good gifts that You have graciously given me, in such rich abundance -in Jesus name I pray,
“I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;”

O God be gracious to me and bless me and make the light of Your face shine on me and draw me back into Your loving arms.. Lord I have wandered far from You, and have been chasing after the things that are of little importance… and in so doing I have left my First Love – I have wandered far from You Lord Jesus, I want to return into Your loving arms.
I have been remembering the beautiful fellowship we enjoyed together when I first was born again and am coming to You Lord now, to confess my neglect – to admit my fault in wandering far from You, in order to experience a few paltry pleasures of the world. But they have left a bitter taste in my mouth and I long to rest in Your love once again, to breathe in the refreshing air of Your grace and to return into the loving arms of Jesus.
So be gracious to me Lord, and may the light of Your face shine on me once more, in Jesus name I pray. In Your grace I come to You in humbleness of heart and pray that we may return into the sweet fellowship we once enjoyed – Thank You Lord that you are a God Whose greatest desire is to reconcile sinners back into Your loving arms,
faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Dear God – the only source of healing and hope and the one fountain of peace and hope – look down in pity and mercy on Your many children who are facing adversity and afflicted by the miseries that this world system is imposing.
Provide for the needs for all those that are called by Your name, who are facing financial hardships and health problems. Enrich them with Your heavenly hope; nourish them with all Your goodness and bring each of them safely into their promised home ,
In Jesus name I pray,
“Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that
there be no divisions among you; but that
ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”

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
“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:”
