Heavenly Father, thank You for this honest assessment of living life in this fallen world, without Christ. Keep us from chasing after any of the vain things that this world offers, knowing that there is nothing on earth that has lasting value except to know You and the Lord Jesus Christ, my God and Saviour. May I place You in the centre of my life knowing that the whole duty and delight of man is to worship and praise You for Your goodness and grace to us and to all men. Amen
Thank You Father that You know the end from the beginning and are in control of all that is happening in my own individual life and the wider world in general. May I trust You through all the circumstances of my life and as I seek Your face in prayer and praise, and may I learn more and more to pray: Thy will be done in my life and throughout the world, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for this simple truth that impacts our lives that two are better than one.. and for the privilege we have, as the body of Christ, to support and encourage one another in the work that You have given us to do. Give me grace and wisdom to hold the things of this world lightly and to consider the needs of others before my own. Unite Your people together in the bond of peace and may we be a living testimony to the goodness and grace of God and work together for the furtherance of the gospel - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how we thank You for bringing us safely to the end of the day and we praise and thank You for Your loving-kindness and great goodness to us today.
Thank You for the many blessings and provisions that You bestowed on us today – for keeping us safe and guiding us and brining us once again to that time of the day when we can recharge our spirits and souls with a refreshing nights sleep.
Forgive me I pray if I have said or done anything that was not honouring to Your name or have sought to do things in my own strength rather than relying totally on You – for I praise You that Your grace is sufficient for Your strength is perfected in our weakness.
And now Lord as we lie down we pray that You would watch over us to protect and keep us safe. Give us a deep and refreshing sleep and may we cast any burdens or difficulties on You and not allow our minds to fret or worry… for You have promised to carry all our burdens if we will just give them to You.
Protect those we love and bring us we pray into Your kingdom in Your time and in Your way for we thank You that our times are safe in Your hands.. this we pray in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, prevent me from nursing foolish anger in my heart. Endow me with godly wisdom and a gracious spirit, so that I may reflect the beauty of Jesus in my life, and be a witness to Your goodness and grace - to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that my life has meaning in Christ, for without Him I am nothing. Help me not to chase after the wind and engage in futile matters that have no permanence or lasting security. Thank You that in Christ I have all I need to make my life meaningful and productive, and I pray that in all I say and do, my life may be lived to honour You, and to glorify Your holy name. This I ask in Jesus name. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, endow me with wisdom and discernment from on high, I pray, for I know that the spiritual battle in which we are engaged, will not be victorious through the man's skills and the strategies of this fallen world system - but are only supplied by grace - through trusting You, and standing firm on the Word of God. Thank You that in Him we have all we need for life and godliness, and thank You for the spiritual armour, which has been provided for our protection. Father I know that the battle is the Lord's and I desire to carry out Your plans and purposes for my life. Give me the wisdom I need to stand firm in this evil day and help me to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus, and my heart ready to obey Your call - this I ask in His precious name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father we bring before You all women that are pregnant.. and all couples that are expecting a little baby to be born into their home, and we ask Your protection for all babies, that are secretly being formed in the womb of their mother.
We ask for their protection, preservation and healthy growth while still developing in the womb, and we pray that expectant mothers will be given the wisdom and grace to avoid the things that can prove so detrimental to the development of the pre-born child.
We pray that You would surround all pre-born babies with a hedge of protection, and a we pray that each little life may develop into the perfectly healthy new-born baby, knowing that there are so many problems that can affect a child in the womb and injure their physical and cognitive development.
Lord it was You that said, suffer the little children to come unto Me and forbid them not and so pray that each one would be born into a family that loves and cherishes them and that each one would learn of Jesus in the days that lie ahead – this we ask in Him name,
Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of God and the wisdom that it contains. Help me to be willing to learn all the lessons it has to offer and not to go chasing after the wind - so that I may live my life wisely.. to Your praise and glory. Thank You that even though there are times when I stray from Your side and seek after the things of this world.. that in Your grace You draw me back into Your loving arms. I pray that my life from this day forward may be a life that is consecrated to You.. and that my eyes remain fixed upon Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith - in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
