Oh Lord Jesus, how difficult life has become due to my husbands excessive drinking of alcohol, well it is now really become alcohol addiction. Life has become so hard, almost unbearable, and his temper is at times out of control, and Lord, I am beginning to fear for our safety.
Lord, You know that this is splitting our family apart and at times I despair that this addiction to alcohol will ever be overcome. Lord, it has not only affected his moods and his increasingly uncaring attitude toward me, but it is affecting his work and I am wondering if he may actually lose his job as a result of this.
Father, it is painful to see someone You love in this pitiful state and I pray for Your guidance and strength to be able to deal with this in a way that honours You, but also for the wisdom to know what to do and how to help my husband.
Lord, I know that it may be a dangerous prayer to pray, but I ask that whatever it takes You would bring my husband to the point of desperation, where You are the only Person to Whom he can turn, as I know that only You can intervene in this addiction and return him to his normal mind.
Father, at times I feel weak and unable to cope and yet I know that Your strength is made perfect in our weakness. Lord, I know that Your grace is sufficient for me and ask that You would remain close to me, to lead and to guide, so that I would know what to do to help him overcome his alcohol addition and encourage him to turn to Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You for the important teachings of Paul in the book of Galatians and the serious peril that comes from trying to be justified by works of the Law rather than as a free gift of grace - through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord. It staggers my understanding that You should love sinners, such as me, to the extent that You gave Your only begotten Son to become the substitute for my sin and that by faith in Him alone, I am declared righteous in Your sight and covered in His righteousness. Were it not for the Lord Jesus, I could never be justified in my own merit - but I praise and thank You for Your wonderful plan of redemption whereby I am credited with righteousness - through faith. Thank You, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that I may wait with patience and grace as, through the power of the Holy Spirit, I continue to look for the any day return of the Lord Jesus and wait for the glorious ‘hope of righteousness’. Help me to know You more and more with each passing day, and may my life and conversation be a true reflection of the life of Christ living in me. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Your Word stands fast forever and ever, and that no matter what evil agendas may be used by the enemy to discredit Your name, to belittle the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus, to blind the eyes of the unsaved, and to shipwreck the lives of those that have been saved by grace through faith, we know that You are stronger and You have promised to finish the good work that You have started in all believers. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose name will one day be glorified throughout all the earth. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your written Word and the truth of the gospel. Help me to discern any false doctrine that may be seeping into the Church, or into my own heart. May I anchor my soul to the Word of God as the bed-rock of my faith, and refuse to allow legalism, liberalism, or any other kind of compromised truth to seep in and ruin my witness. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You started a good work in me at my salvation and have promised to complete it at the day of Christ. Protect my heart and mind from any of the false teachings that have infiltrated Christendom today, and help me never to substitute slavery to the Law for the freedom I have in Christ. Thank You that justification is by faith alone in Christ alone and not by works of the Law. I pray that I would hold fast to the truth of Your Word, day by day, and study to show myself approved unto You. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the simple message of salvation, that it is Your free gift of grace through faith alone in Christ alone, as written in Your precious Word. Thank You that my salvation does not rest on what I have done, but on what He has done on my behalf. Keep me looking to Jesus alone. In His name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for this important reminder that both legalism and a license to sin is unacceptable in the life of a child of God. Thank You for the freedom I have in Christ, and help me to live in holiness and righteousness to Your praise and glory, serving others through Christ's love, which only comes as I continue to abide in Him and He in me. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You have given me a regenerated human spirit, and the power to live my life in spirit and truth. I pray that, day by day, I may walk by means of the Spirit and submit to His leading and guiding. Help me to listen to His voice, submit to His will, and be obedient to His correction so that I will not succumb to the desires of the flesh but rather walk in newness of life. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I know that I am weak and that my fleshly nature lusts against the new Christ-like nature that I received as a free gift of grace, when I first trusted Christ as Saviour. I pray that I would make the right choices and not yield to the old sin nature but submit to the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit within. Help me to grow in grace and mature in the faith, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I have been saved by grace through faith in Christ and am no longer under the Law, but under grace. Thank You that my old, fallen nature was crucified with Christ on the Cross. I pray that it will remain nailed to the Tree so that I may be led by the Spirit of God and walk in newness of life. Keep me, I pray, from fleshly inclinations and legalistic practices that place me back in bondage to my old sin nature and the works of the flesh. Help me to live and move and have my being in You so that I can say as Paul did, "The life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave himself for me." In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Father, I bless you for the joy poured into my life, for once I was lost but now I am found. May I learn to rejoice in my sufferings and may Your joy flow through me to all I meet today, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that the Cross broke the power of sin in my life and that by faith, I am enabled to walk in spirit and truth. Thank You that I am identified with Christ by faith, and that in Him, I have the ability to crucify the flesh, nailing it to the Cross. May I bear the fruit of righteousness to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that at the point of my salvation, I was made alive in the Spirit and became one with Christ Jesus. I pray that I may live the rest of my life walking in spirit and truth. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
