1 Peter 5
Lord we pray that You would use this time in hospital to reach deep into the hearts of each these people and help them to realise how fragile their lives are - and to cause them to consciously search for You with their hearts.
Lord we pray that as healing and health comes to their bodies that spiritual healing and wholeness would come to their souls – and that the time they have spent in hospital would become a spiritual wake-up call – so that they re-evaluate their lives and realise their need of Jesus as their Saviour - and accept Christ as their Redeemer and King – in Whose name we pray,
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,
Oh Lord Jesus, how difficult life has become due to my husbands excessive drinking of alcohol – well it is now really become alcohol addition. Life has become so hard, almost unbearable.. and his temper is at times out of control- and Lord, I am beginning to fear for our safety.
Lord You know that this is splitting our family apart and at times I despair that this addiction to alcohol will ever be overcome. Lord it has not only affected his moods and his increasingly uncaring attitude toward me, but it is affecting his work and I am wondering if he may actually lose his job as a result of this.
Father it is painful to see someone You love in this pitiful state and I pray for Your guidance and strength to be able to deal with this in a way that honours You – but also for the wisdom to know what to do and how to help my husband.
Lord I know that it may be a dangerous prayer to pray.. but I ask that whatever it takes You would bring my husband to the point where of desperation, where You are the only Person to Whom he can turn.. as I know that only You can intervene in this addiction and return him to his normal mind.
Father at time I feel weak and unable to cope and yet I know that Your strength is made perfect in our weakness. Lord I know that Your grace is sufficient for me and ask that You would remain close to me – to lead and to guide, so that I would know what to do to help him overcome his alcohol addition and encourage him to turn to Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
