Heavenly Father, how privileged we are to have such an astonishing peep into the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord, in Ezekiel's amazing vision, when You were You seated on Your heavenly throne and surrounded by the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day and transported by four magnificent living creatures. No words are sufficiently worthy to convey the greatness of Your glory... and yet in Your goodness and grace You pitied the state of Your fallen creatures and gave Your only begotten Son to become the perfect sacrifice for our sin. There are no words to express how great is Your endless wisdom; boundless power and awesome purity. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, so many people have fallen into the devastating, downward spiral of alcoholism, and yet in Your grace and mercy we see so many that are being freed from their addiction to alcohol and many more that are coming to faith the Lord Jesus Christ, as a result of a crisis point in their lives, which has so often taken them to the depths of despair.
Thank You Lord for all who have been rescued from alcoholism and for those that have supported them through it.We know that the enemy comes to steal and to kill and to destroy men and women, by enticing them into a life of alcoholism and other evil addictions, but we thank and praise You that Jesus came to destroy the works of the evil one and promised to give life abundantly, to all who trust in Christ as Saviour.
We thank You for all those who are currently being helped to leave their life of alcohol addition behind, and we pray that each one will come to a saving knowledge if Christ and know You as Saviour and Lord – this we ask in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, thank You that You do nothing without revealing it to us first, through Your biblical prophets. Thank You that we know the end from the beginning, through the holy Scriptures. Thank You that You use every avenue to reach the lost for Christ, and to bring many to faith in Him. Use me as a watchman, to sound the alarm that time is short, and that today is the day of salvation for the lost – if they will but trust in Christ, for the forgiveness of their sins. May my life be an honest and worthy witness and a true testimony of Your grace – this I ask in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
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,
Heavenly Father, thank You that the Lord Jesus is our good and faithful shepherd, and thank You that I have been brought into the great sheepfold of Your love. We pray for Your people Israel.. that many would come to trust in Christ as their Messiah. And we praise Your holy name that the day is coming when great David's greater Son will one day rule and reign as King of kings of Lord of lords. Thank You that in His grace He will feed the little remnant flock of Israel Himself.. and will be their good and faithful Shepherd - in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
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,
Heavenly Father, I marvel at the wonderful way that You have kept a faithful watch over Your people Israel and returned many back to their land, despite their continuing unbelief and spiritual poverty. It is wonderful to see the way You have guarded them through centuries of time and to know that a day is coming when they will not only be physically restored to their promised land and permenantly settled, there but will be spiritually enlivened by faith in Christ, and have their New Covenant fully ratified, when Jesus is crowned as King and hailed as Lord. Thank You that I too have been made spiritually alive, by faith in Christ and am a minister of the new and better covenant that was cut at Calvary. Thank You that Your promises to both Israel and the Church are "yes" and "amen", in Christ Jesus, my Lord - in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, it is amazing to realise that for thousands of years the nation of Israel has been like a valley of dried-up bones.. dead in their sin, estranged from You and scattered throughout the world in unbelief. But it is equally wonderful that You have never faltered on Your plans and purposes for Your chosen people and that the day is coming when the whole house of Israel will repent of their sin, return to You, call on the name of the Lord Jesus and be saved. Continue to protect and care for Your people who are still living in unbelief and we bless the day when You pour out Your Spirit on all flesh, take away their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Hasten the time we pray, when Your name will be glorified throughout the world and lifted high by the whole house of Israel - this we pray in Jesus' name. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, You have promised give Your people their rain in due season so that the land may bring forth its increase. You have promised to send the early and the latter rains and we thank You for Your faithfulness in watering the land of Israel for so many years.
Lord we come again to pray that You would refill us like the Sea of Galilee and pour refreshing rains on the land, so that the rivers will be filled and the land will blossom and bloom and yield its harvest in due season.
Lord as a nation Israel had strayed far from You and has even failed to recognise their Saviour and King - and yet You have not forgotten Your own chosen people and have continued to bless them, despite their unbelief and blindness to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ. Father we pray for Israel, that You would send an abundance of rain to fill up the depleted reservoirs of water.
Water Your land and bless Your people, Israel we pray and we pray that many may come to recognise the Lord Jesus as their God and Saviour, in Whose name we pray,
