Heavenly Father, thank You for Your prophetic Word and the truths that You have shared with us through Your servants.. the prophets. Thank You for Your incarnate Word - the Lord Jesus Christ. Help me to read and understand all that is going on in these last days of the Church dispensation.

Prayer For Rain In A Drought

Dear Lord, we are facing a sever drought and we plead with You to open the heavens and send rain on this dry and thirsty land. Lord we know that You are the one that sends the rain and You are the one that can withhold the rain, but we pray that You would look down in pity on our waterless land and send the rain to water the land, reviving the land and the people.

Lord we do not deserve You grace and mercy, for we have not loved and served You as we should – but You are long-suffering and of great goodness and You would send rivers of water over the vegetation and fill up the water-hold and well – for the earth is parched and we do not know what to do.

Lord for Your Holy Names sake we ask that You would send the rains in this land soon, for we have no hope but You – for You have promised to give rain upon the earth and send water on the fields – You have promised that the seasons will not fail and that the harvest will continue to provide their bounty – but without the life-giving water, we are going to have to face very severe consequences. In Your mercy send us rain in the dry and dusty land, we pray in Jesus name.


“And also I have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.”
(Amos 4:7)

Heavenly Father, there are many today who are unaware that the day of grace is soon to be closed and that they will one day have to stand before Jesus Christ as their Saviour OR their Judge. Thank You that we have been saved by grace because Jesus took the punishment that we deserve upon Himself. Thank You that Jesus was judged in our place.. so that we would not have to face Your wrath .. but have received forgiveness of sin and life everlasting. We pray for the multitudes that do not know You or who have deliberately refused to recognize the truth and repent of their sin and we plead the blood of Jesus for their forgiveness.. We pray that in Your wrath You will remember mercy and bring many into the kingdom today.. by grace through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord - in Whose name we pray, AMEN.

“Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.”

Heavenly Father, how we thank You for the lessons we can learn from Israel. I pray that I may eschew the evil and do the good for Your greater glory. Thank You that Christ is our blessed Hope and in Him there is grace and liberty. Keep me low at the cross and broken before You and complete Your perfect plan of redemption - for both Your Church and the people of Israel, and bring many to that point of repentance we pray - in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, help me to pay attention to all that You are saying through Your word and I pray that I may have a teachable spirit and an ear that listens to all that the Spirit says to the Churches. Keep me from prideful thoughts, harmful words; foolish decisions and careless actions and may I never hold Your truth lightly, but diligently apply it in my heart, and practice it in my life - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN. 

“Therefore thus saith the LORD; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.”

Prayers For Those That Are In Need

Dear God, I know that it is Your will to help those that are afflicted - to support the weak; to provide for the widows and orphans – and to help those that are in need.

Use my hands to be of service to those in need and use my voice to speak words of healing and encouragement to those that are afflicted and in distress.

Thank You for hearing my prayer,

“That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?”

Prayer For Fathers Mourning An Abortion

Loving Lord, we lift before You the fathers of aborted babies and the emotional trauma that can often affect them, knowing that they are often excluded from the decision to terminate a pregnancy.

We pray that You would be close to those who have been left emotionally distraught and grieving for the little life that they were denied.

We pray Your comfort upon all men who have been affected by abortion in this way and ask that You would give solace and succour to all who are grieving for the son or daughter that they will never see. This we ask in Jesus name,


“And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.”
(Amos 8:10)

Thank You that You did not give up on Israel and thank You that You will never give up on me - thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You that You have not finished with the nation of Israel, despite their apostasy and idolatry. Thank You that Your promises to both Israel and the Church are fulfilled in Christ - through Whose sacrificial death and glorious resurrection, all things have been made new. Thank You that the day is coming when the earth will be filled with the glory of God, as the waters cover the sea. You alone are worthy of our praise and thanksgiving, in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
