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.
Heavenly Father, You are a good and gracious God Whose mercy is everlasting, Whose word cannot fail and Whose faithfulness endures from generation to generation. Thank You for Your gracious provision to the children of men.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful way all scripture points, to Christ. Help me to be earnest in my study of Your word, and guide me into all truth I pray. Thank You for the beautiful emblems of bread and wine that Melchizedek gave to Abraham and which is used in remembrance of Christ's sacrifice of Himself on the cross for my sake and the sake of all mankind.

Dear Lord, thank You that I am justified by faith in Christ and have been covered in His righteousness. I pray that You work in my life a faith like that of Abraham, so that I do not stagger at Your promises, but believe Your word and trust in Your faithfulness, in Christ’s name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father I recognise Your almighty power and great glory - for the heavens declare its truth and Christ proved it with outstretched arms on Calvary's cross. But You are also my great Provider for which I thank You. Your gracious provision is All-sufficient and I long to serve You faithfully and to live a blameless life before You, which is only possible as You provide the power through the Holy Spirit's work in me.

Thank You that by believing in Jesus, Who died to pay the price for all my sins, You have washed me clean from every dishonouring act. Thank You Father.
Help me Lord to flee fornication and all the accompanying evils that flow from illicit sexual relationships and unclean thoughts – knowing that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who dwells in me and lives within my heart.
