Prayer for 1 Thessalonians 5 ►
Dear heavenly Father, at this time of the year when the Church remembers the first coming of our Lord and Saviour into the world, we want to lift up our hearts and voices in prayer and praise to You, for sending the Lord Jesus Christ into the world to be our Saviour– so that through his blood we may be brought back into a right relationship with Yourself and receive the gift of eternal life – by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
At this time our thoughts are specially drawn in remembrance to the wonderful time, so long ago, when God in His grace sent the eternal Son of His love into the world to become the propitiation for our sins. How we rejoice when we recall that He set aside His glory and great majesty to take on the form of a man and be born into this world as a tiny baby, in such humble circumstances.
Lord in a world that is become more secular, I pray that the people of God who are called by Your name would take time to reflect with awe and wonder on this amazing truth and to prepare our hearts for the time when Jesus Christ will return again in power and great glory at His second Advent..
Purify our hearts we pray and sanctify our lives so they we may serve you in newness of life not only in this special season of Advent but every day of our lives – until You come to take us to be with You forever, in Jesus name we pray,
“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”

Heavenly Father, I bow my knee before You in prayer and praise. Lead and guide me today in all You say and do. May I walk in spirit and truth today and be sensitive to Your gentle guidance.
Help me I pray to fix my eyes on the Lord Jesus, knowing that without Him I will quickly stray from the path that is best for me. Lord I believe that You have scheduled every day of my life and I do not want to stray from the path that You would have me take.
Help me to be faithful to You and to willing go along the path of Your choosing, knowing that it may conflict with my own desires and wishes. Develop in me a heart that delights to do Your will so that the longings of my heart are brought into line with Your plans and purposes and Your will for my life.
Let my eyes always be looking to You and keep me from the looking at the storms and difficulties of life, knowing that You are with me to lead and guide and to uphold to Your praise and glory.
Thank You that Jesus is the Way and the Truth and the Life and I desire to do only that which is pleasing in Your site, in His name I pray,
“And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;”

Lord I am facing such hard times – times that have become much more difficult with each passing day and at times I get quite anxious and afraid, wondering how we are going to manage.
Lord I know that You have promised to care for all Your children – but there are so many… I don’t understand how You can care for us all… nevertheless I want to trust You to keep Your word because You have promised – and You are faithful to keep Your promises.
Thank You Lord that You are my light and my salvation. I know that there is nothing to worry about when You are my strength and stay – Lord I believe that there is nothing that You cannot do – please help my unbelief Lord Jesus, for I know that when You are the stronghold of my life there is nothing of which to be afraid…
Thank You Lord
