Loving heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Jesus to heal the sick – both sickness in the body and the sickness of the soul. Thank You that through His death and resurrection Jesus broke the power of sin and sickness… of death and hell, and how we praise and thank You for Your tender love and deep compassion to all of us, who were dead in trespasses and sin and without hope in the world.
Thank You that Jesus is our eternal Saviour and great Physician and that He came to bear all our sicknesses, afflictions – all our suffering and pain.
I pray that You would come and visit me in my sickness and that You would grant me relief and release from the illness that is eating away at my strength and causing me such discomfort and pain. Lord, I believe that Your power of old is ever new and that You are willing and able to make me well.
Grant me the grace and patience to wait Your timing knowing that Your strength is made perfect in my weakness – touch me today I pray and bring me back to full health and feed my heart with Your love so that I may draw ever closer to You with every passing day, I ask this in Jesus name,
But Lord although this was once the land of the brave and the home of the free, sadly there is so much that is wrong with our country that I fear for its future. Lord as a people we have walked away from You and discredited Your holy name by the way that we have conducted ourselves over the past few years and there is no health in our land.
Look down in pity on our people and our land and protect us from those that seem determined on destroying our nation. Send Your Spirit I pray through the land of America and touch the hearts of all those that are called by Your name to plead on behalf our people. Convict those that are damaging our infrastructure and as a nation may we turn away from our wicked ways and return You to Your rightful position – in integrity and truth.
I ask this in Jesus name.
Loving Lord, I come to You and confess my sin of abortion, and ask that Your healing grace would touch my heart today. The remembrance of it is eating me inside and I need Your healing grace and loving forgiveness.
I cast this great burden onto You, knowing that You have promised to heal those that are broken-hearted and to bind up the inner wounds of those that are hurting.
I know that the consequences of our wrong choices can bring much pain, but I also know that You are a God Who has promised to forgive and heal all who come to You with a contrite heart and that You will remember our sins no more.
Forgive me Lord, heal my life.. create in me a clean hear I pray and renew a right spirit within me – this I ask in Jesus name,
Lord I do ask that You would meet my friend at their point of need – not only in their physical suffering but also in their spiritual sickness. Lord my dear friend not only needs recovery of their physical health but recovery of their spiritual lack and the emotional pain - that seems to be making their physical problem so much worse.
Administer all Your gifts of health and healing for body and mind I pray and multiply Your blessings and grace towards them so that they may be fully restored and come to a deeper knowledge and understanding of You, in Jesus name,
Thank You Father for Your goodness and mercy to me, and to all men, which is new every morning and for the wonderful answers to prayer for which I praise and glorify Your name.
Thank You that I have access to the throne of grace, to find mercy and grace to help in time of need and day by day I praise and thank You hear that You hear and answer the cries of my heart and supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory.
Thank You Lord for the simple things in life that we so often take for granted.. the sun and stars; the flowers and trees; our daily food and clothing; my home and family and the peace and joy that comes from knowing You.
Thank You also for sharing in my sorrows and joys; and for the sufficient grace and strength that we receive day by day and thank You Lord for dying for me on the cross as my Redeemer – paying the price for my sins so that I may have Your life and live with You in heaven forever. May my heart be truly thankful and may I live my life in a manner that is pleasing to You to Your honour and glory, in Jesus name I pray,
In Jesus name I pray,
Lord, give me the purity, integrity and focus to be the kind of vessel You would desire.
Keep me also from critical thoughts of others, and prevent me Lord, from having a spirit of control – or by pretending to hold others accountable to You when the beam in my own eye is greater than the speck that is in my brothers’ eyes.
Keep me humble before Your throng of grace and may I walk the way of the cross day be day - with the Spirit as my teacher and the Word of God washing me clean. Thank You for all my Christian friends and brothers and keep us all walking close to You in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name I pray,
Heavenly Father I thank You that Your perfect plans and purposes can never be frustrated and that You are working quietly in the background in order that Your divine will continues to progress towards its ultimate goal, as year succeeds to year.
I praise You that You have given me life and made me a new creation in Christ and thank You Father, that You have a special purpose for my life too. Thank You that by Your grace You are carrying out Your purposes in the lives of all Your children - that Christ is all and in all and I pray that this may be realized in my life too.
Enable and equip me I pray, to fulfill the plan and purpose that you have for me to do and I ask that You would use each gift and every talent that You have graciously given to me, to Your praise and glory.
Help me to fulfill all that You would have me do in my life and may I be obedient to Your voice as I seek to carry out Your purpose for my life. May I rejoice evermore and pray without ceasing.
May I give thanks in all things and hearken to the voice of Your Holy Spirit and may I hold fast to that which is good and abstain from all forms of evil – knowing that this is Your will for my life.. in Jesus name I pray,
Give me wisdom and discernment to as I meet new people, and help me to be both cautious in my dealings as well as kind in my actions. May I walk in the path that You have called me to go and not stray from Your guidance.
Provide I pray all my needs and necessities and provide me with health and strength as I face the challenges that face me - and be the best that I can be in the place that You have called me to go.
Be with all my loved ones that I am leaving behind and keep them safe in the arms of Jesus, day by day and bring us back together in Your way and Your own good time. I ask this in the name of my Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are a God whose promises never fail and Whose word is righteous and true – and Father You have promised to send rain in their seasons so that the land will yield its increase and the trees will bear their fruit – but Lord the severe lack of rain has caused this land to become like a dust bowl and we are afraid that the labour of planting and harvesting will come to nothing if we do not receive rain very soon.
Lord Your word says “He will give the rain for your land in its season, the early and late rain, that you may gather in your grain and Your new wine and Your oil,” and You have promised, “rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying hearts with food and gladness.”
Lord we do not deserve Your grace but for the sake of Your holy name we ask that You would water the land and provide us with the rain that You promised in this season – for Jesus name sake,
Let me never lose sight of who I am in Christ and help me to trust You in all things, knowing that I am Your child and that greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.
Thank You that You are my Shepherd Who has promised to lead and to guide.. to protect and to uphold. Thank You that you are my Defence and my Defender and that You have promised to be my ever-present help in those times of unexpected difficulties and trials.
Thank You Lord, that You remain faithful and dependable, even when I stray from the path that You have graciously laid out for me. May I never forget that You are my firm Anchor and the steady Rock upon which I stand, and that no difficulty in life is to great that You cannot overcome – thank You in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father I lift us each of my grandchildren to You and thank You for each life that is so special in Your sight. Lord I pray that each one will come to know Christ as Saviour early in their lives and desire a close walk with You through their teens and twenties and into adulthood.
May they learn to love Your Word and to come to know the value of prayer in their lives so that they grow up into men and women that live godly in Christ Jesus,
Lord I pray that all of us that have a touch on these young lives will teach them day by day about the Lord Jesus and the wonderful truths in Your Word – both in word and by example - just as the mother and grandmother of Timothy taught him the truth of the Word of God. Guide each of my precious grandchildren into all truth and bring them into true saving faith I pray… for You have promised that children that are brought up in the way that they should go will not depart from it as they grow older..
Keep each one I pray under the shadow of Your protection and love and may they grow in grace and discernment and wisdom throughout their lives – and use each one I pray in Your service I pray, to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray,
Heavenly Father, You know all that I have done in my life, and how I have skirted around the issue of my abortion, dismissed the significance of this sin in my life and tried to pretend that it was no big deal.
But Lord, I now confess to You this terrible sin and realise increasingly that it is detestable in Your sight to abort a new little life. I confess my wrongdoing and grieve to think of the unborn baby that I chose to terminate in my womb.
I confess my sin and repent of my casual attitude and ask for Your healing touch on my life. Help me to release this painful memory to You and to accept that Your promise of forgiveness to all who repent of their sins and turn to Christ.
Thank You that You paid the price for all my sins at Calvary and that You have promised to remove them as far as the east is from the west… Thank You in Jesus name,
Father I realise that in Your grace You have excluded no one from Your gift of Salvation but simply hold us accountable to believe in Your precious Son – but now I understand that You also hold me accountable to grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus – by faith in Christ and not by trusting in my own abilities - if I am to become a mature believer in Christ.
Lord I want to grow in my Christian life and to live my life as unto the Lord. Teach me Your ways and guide me with Your Holy Spirit. Give me a teachable Spirit and a desire to apply all the truths that I am learning – for I desire to do Your will in my life… in Jesus name I pray,
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
Father, You alone are the one that can address their need and sever the root of their anger – for it is only as one abides in Christ that the fruit of His Holy Spirit can grow and displace the ugliness of anger and bitterness within.
Bring those that do not know the Lord Jesus as saviour into a saving faith in Him so that they can know that their sins are forgiven forever and that You paid the price of all - and for those that know You as Saviour I pray that they come to understand that it is only as we yield to Your Spirit and admit our inabilities to deal with the fruit of evil in our heart that You will are able to guide us into the paths of righteousness, unforgiveness and love.
Free me Lord I pray from this compulsion for it is stifling my life and has cost me many dear friends as well as my job – but I long to be free to live as I ought.
I have heard the gospel and I do believe that Jesus died to take the full punishment for all my sins, including my addiction and I believe that He rose the third day, which broke the power of death in the lives of all who believe – so I am coming to you to ask You Lord to give me the abundant life that You have promised. I know that eternal life is now my portion but I pray that I may be free of my addiction in this life so that I may serve You as You deserve, I ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Lord – You know the illness that I have been struggling with for a long time now and that there is little that seems to be able to be done by the medical profession - but Lord I believe that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and that You know every part of my body - and You know exactly why I have been ill for so long. Lord, I come to You now asking that You would work a full recovery in my body – whatever is causing this persistent problem - and I pray that You would, in Your mercy give me back the health and strength I need…
Lord if there is anything that is lacking in my diet or anything that is causing this ongoing problem within my body – I pray that You would show me so that it may be finally dealt with – Restore again my health and strength I pray and guide me along the path that You have planned for me, in Jesus name I pray,
