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.

“As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.”
(Ezekiel 1:28)

Thanksgiving For Deliverance from Alcoholism

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.

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,
 
Amen

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.

“Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity.”

The Death Of A Believer

Loving Lord I am filled with grief and sadness at the loss of my precious loved one – and yet that pain is tinged with gold, knowing that they trusted you as their Saviour and that they are now in Your presence.

I know that I am going to miss this precious one, who has been my strength and my joy for so long, and thank You for the precious times we had together.

Often Lord I expect my dear one to just be there, or walk through the door - and then remember that they have gone home to be with You. At times this is quite hard and yet I know that I must not grieve as those that have not hope in Jesus – but rejoice knowing that the day is coming when we will be together with You and You will wipe away all tears from our eyes - but at the moment my loss is like an open wound – and I pray that You will heal my brokenness and the loneliness I feel… and draw me every closer into Your arms of love my Lord and my God.

Thank You for all You are to me and may I rest in You in Jesus name,

Amen
“Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?”

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,

Amen

Prayer for Personal Accountability

Lord Jesus it says in Your Word, examine Yourself to see it you are in the faith – Lord I realise that this is not talking to unbelievers but to all of us who are Your children, in Christ Jesus. Lord help me to examine myself, and all that I am, and all that I am learning from You and Your word, so that I truly may say with conviction :-I know in Whom I have believed and am walking in the path on which He has placed me.

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,

Amen
“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.”

For Rain In Its Season

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,

Amen

“And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.”

Times of Healing and Spiritual Renewal

Loving Father, I know that You often halt us in our tracks and remove us from the business of life, through an illness or a time of ill-health - so that we are forced take our eyes off the hurly-burly of life, and lie on an enforced bed of sickness - in order to rediscover what are our true priorities are in life.

Father, I know that I have not spent quality time with You, as I have allowed the daily duties of life and less-important issues to crowd out my special time alone in Your presence.

Forgive me I pray. I want to use this time of ill-health as an opportunity to get closer to You. Lead me and guide me in this time of illness - and may it become a time of spiritual as well as a period of physical rest.

Heal me Father I pray, not only in my body but also in my relationship with You,

Thank you,

Amen
“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.”

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.

“And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.”

Prayer For Israel’s Rain

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,

Amen

“And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.”
