Heavenly Father, thank You for the book of Isaiah and the many truths within its pages. Thank You that You sent Jesus to save Your people from their sin and to save ME - and place me into Your heavenly family, by grace through faith in Christ Jesus my Saviour. Keep me from wandering away from the truth of Your word, and give me an understanding heart and a love for You, that grows with every passing day - This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, as I read through Your word I realise how quickly and easily a man of God or a woman of faith can become derailed, when they begin to follow the things of this world. Keep me low at the cross, broken before You and teach me the lessons You would have me learn from Your righteous dealings with Israel. Thank You, that in Your grace You still maintain a tiny remnant of believers and I pray that I too may be one that does not stray from the path of peace but stands firm on the Word of truth. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the way that You have used Israel as an example to us of the importance of purifying our heart and learning all that You want to teach us as we journey through life. I pray that I may shun evil and renounce those things that dishonour Your name and live godly in Christ Jesus - Who is my life and my Salvation - and in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, as I see the influence that pagan beliefs, idolatrous practices, worldly philosophies, women's lib. and other unbiblical practices, have on the Church today, I pray that You would stir up Christian leaders to stand firm on the Word of God and that the people of God would study to show themselves approved unto Him, so that we do not fall into the terrible trap into which Israel fell, when children oppressed the people and dictated their own rules... and when the sanctity of family life was overturned by worldly philosophies, pagan practices, and the same, ungodly worldview, which is flooding through this earth, today. Keep me low at the cross and broken before You, and may I live my life according to Your will and Your way - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN
I confess that I have not only hurt other people, and especially those that are close to me – but I have offended You and ignored some of the warnings that I believe were directly or indirectly sent from You. Help me I pray to break free of this ungodly addiction and get on the road to recovery.
Forgive me Lord I pray me for I have sinned against You and ignored the clear teaching of Your Word to live soberly, righteously and in the fear of the Lord and to walk circumspectly before You, as a child of the light. But I come to You in humble submission to ask You to help me to get on the road to addiction recovery, for I know that You have promised to lift-up all who come to You out of the miry pit – even when we have foolishly dug it for ourselves.
Help me be set free from alcohol.. putting on the breastplate of righteousness, and grace, and for helmet – the hope of salvation in Christ , in Whose name I pray,
Heavenly Father, what a great and magnificent God You are. And how I praise and thank You that You are my God in Whom I place my trust. Keep me looking away from the world to You, Who alone is my Protector and Provider and in Who died in my place so that I might live for Him - this I pray in Jesus name, AMEN.
Father God, the glory of Your Person and the perfection of Your character amazes me. I am not worthy to unloose Your sandal and yet You sent Your only begotten Son to die for me - Praise Your Holy name, AMEN
Father, teach me Who You are and show me how flawed my understanding is, of who I truly am in Christ. Thank you for cleansing my lips and washing me clean in the blood of Jesus - Lord. Here am I, send me, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, it must have been wonderful for Isaiah to see the Lord, high and lifted up, but what a solemn message he was given - that people would hear his words but reject his message. Lord it is human nature to expect people to respond positively to the glorious gospel of grace, and yet I see that many will hear the words of the gospel but not listen, nor understand because of the hardness of their hearts. Help me not to become discouraged when I try to share the gospel and am rebuffed or scorned. Help me to be faithful in the work You have given me to do and I pray that some would hear and respond with repentance and joy - for the honour of Your holy name. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, You alone are wise and good. Thank You for the truths that are contained in Your holy Word. Thank You that by Your grace You told the end from the beginning and sent Your Son to be born of a virgin and become the full and final atonement for our sin. Thank You that Jesus walked the earth as a Man, and understands the limitations of our humanity. Thank You that He helps us in our trials and temptations and we praise Your name that He is coming back one day, to finalise His authority over sin, the world and the devil - to Him be all the glory, world without end - AMEN.
Thank You Father for sending the light of the glorious gospel of grace into my life and for shining the light of Christ into my heart. Open my eyes more and more to see You, Lord Jesus for Who You truly are - to see more clearly what You have achieved in my life. To You be all praise and glory forever, in the name of Jesus I pray, AMEN.
Loving Lord – no matter how many times I read of the wonder of Your incarnation as the Word made flesh it fills me with wonder and praise – and I worship You in the beauty of holiness – I bow down before Your throne of grace in wonderment – for holy in You name, AMEN
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful prophecies of Isaiah and the hope we all have in Christ. Thank You that the day is coming when Your people will be fully and finally regathered back to the land You promised to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their seed forever. Foster in their hearts a desire to know the truth. Open the Scriptures to their understanding that they may see Jesus in the books of Moses, the prophetic writings of Your holy prophets and the Messianic Psalms of David and we pray for the day when the nation will acknowledge Jesus as Lord and be brought back to their land a second time. This we ask in Jesus name AMEN.
Thank You Lord for my salvation - praise the Lord O my soul for You are a great and mighty God. As I go into the world today as Your representative, give me increased boldness to name the name of my Jesus, and may my life reflect Your grace and goodness, to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus is the one and only Bright Morning Star and that my life is hid with Christ in God. Thank You that nothing can pluck me out of His hands. Thank You that Satan is a defeated foe and that in Christ.. I have all that is needed to resist the devil and to stand firm in this evil day. We pray that the minds of many that have been deceived by Satan's evil lies and blinded to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ may come to see that Jesus is the only Way to God.. the only true Light of God and that in Him is Life everlasting, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Dear heavenly Father You are my God, my Lord and my Salvation. I will praise Your name for ever and ever for You have done wonderful things for me and for all who trust in Your unfailing goodness and mercy – praise the Lord oh my soul and let all that is within me glorify and worship His holy name – in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, we rejoice in our salvation and the blessed hope of Christ's soon return. Thank You for the faithful promises that You have made to us and to Your people Israel. Renew our joy and faith in believing and may we wait in joyful anticipation for Christ's any day return for His Church. We bless and praise you that your promises to Israel are also "Yes" and "Amen" in Christ Jesus our Lord, to Whom be all praise and glory, AMEN.
Loving Father I pray that the thoughts of my heart and the meditation of my mind be centred on You moment by moment, so that the righteousness and peace of Christ will kiss my life as I walk in spirit and truth… in the power of the Holy Spirit, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your never-failing goodness and Your promise of peace and righteousness.. in Christ Jesus my Lord. Keep me looking to You, depending upon You and trusting in You every day of my life, for You are my everlasting Rock.. my God and my Father, my Saviour and King and I love You Lord, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN,
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You for the wonderful example of this little remnant of Israel, about whom Isaiah wrote. I pray, that like them,.. my soul longs for You day and night, and that You would guide me into all truth, so that I may tell forth the glories of Your name - so that the world may know that You are the Lord - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how precious to know that You always have had a remnant that is true to the gospel of God, despite many in Christendom following after false gods and unbiblical doctrines. No matter what path others choose to take, I pray that You would keep my feet planted on the Rock of my salvation, and walking in the way of righteousness, for Your names sake and for Your greater glory. Thank You for the prophetic writings that remind us of the importance of looking to You moment by moment, in spirit and in truth – in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
Loving heavenly Father, You put us into families and set a father as the leader and role model for each family… but Lord there are many families that are being torn apart by a husband and father that has become addicted to alcohol.
Knowing the devastating nature of this disease, I pray that You would prompt each one to turn away from this evil habit to become the responsible husband and father that You desire each one to be.
Lord we know that there are many alcoholic husbands that abuse their wives both physically and emotionally and that many children are also placed in danger, due to abuse from an alcoholic father – and also Lord, that such drinking habits can often leave families with insufficient money to live on.
Protect all those that are vulnerable from all forms of abuse and convict such men of the responsibilities of being loving husbands and dependable fathers – and Lord we pray that they turn from their evil ways to turn to the Lord Jesus – knowing that only in You is true freedom found.
Thank You Father – I commit all families that are in this position into Your safe-keeping,
Heavenly Father, thank You that Your plans and purposes will never fail and that nothing happens in our lives that is not known or permitted by You for our eternal benefit and to Your greater praise and glory. Until that great day when You come in the clouds to rescue the Church from the wrath that is to be poured out on a Christ-rejecting, sinful world. I pray that I may be salt and light to those whom You place in my path - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the lessons I can learn from the testimony and prophetic writings of Isaiah and other prophets of God who warn against disobedience and encourage us in our faith. May I open my ears to all that You have to say and help me and stand fast on the Word of God, which gives life and health to the penitent sinner. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that as I read through Your word You would teach me the many lessons that need to be learned - that I must not put my trust in the wisdom of man but in the Word of Truth - the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that in Him I have life and hope and an inheritance in heaven. Give me discernment to do that which is right in Your eyes and eschew all that is evil. Thank You that the day is coming when the curse of death will be removed forever and Jesus will put all enemies under His feet. I pray that I may never be swayed by the deceptive words of worldly men or lying politicians, but look to Jesus, moment by moment and trust in Him alone. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the incredible message of the cross and for giving me an understanding of the staggering truth that God, in the Person of Jesus Christ came to earth, to live and die as a man. Thank You that by grace through faith in Him I have been saved and am being conformed into the likeness of Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, Who lives in me, and Who guides all those who trust in You into all truth. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Help me Lord to abide in You, to rest in Your love and to trust in Your strength in quietness and confidence - for You alone are my Sustainer, my Provider and my Defender.. in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are my God and Saviour. Thank You for the grace You have shown to me.. and to all who trust in Christ, for salvation. We pray for Your people, Israel.. that many would repent and turn to Christ, by trusting in His shed blood, for the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting - to Whom be all honour and glory, forever and ever, AMEN.
Loving Father I praise and thank You for Your faithfulness, even when I am faithless. I long to tune the ears of my heart to Your promptings and to always listen to Your voice. Thank You that You are always there to hold me steady when the enemy of my soul seeks to entrap me. More than anything I thank You that You sent Jesus to be my Saviour and my Friend – my Way and my Life, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the unfolding plan of redemption and the wonderful way that You sent the Lord Jesus, through the nation of Israel, to be our Saviour and Lord. Thank You, that You are already my shield and refuge, by grace through faith.. and thank You that I have Christ as my food and drink, and the Rock of my salvation. Thank You that nothing can stop Your plans and purposes from being fulfilled.. for both Your people Israel and for the Church, which is Christ's body - thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the truths that I can learn from Your dealings with Your people Israel. Thank You that Jesus is the King of Righteousness, and that the day is coming, when You will put all wrongs to right - when You return in power and great glory, to set up Your kingdom on earth. May the peace of Christ guard our hearts, knowing that You have already gained the victory over sin and death.. for all who believe in the name Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, in Whose name we pray - AMEN.
Loving Father I want to live my life in humble service to You, but I also want to entrust my life and the lives of those that I love into Your hands, especially in times of oppression and disappointments, knowing that You see the whole perspective and that all is working towards Your final, perfect plans and purposes. May Your will be done in my life and in my death, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Lord Jesus, my heart is aching as I had an abortion a long time ago and I still feel guilty for I know now that what I did was wrong –it was a sin against You Lord - but Father at the time I was frightened. I was pregnant – but now I realise that my sin was against You in so many ways and that the responsibility is mine – Oh God, I have wondered if I could ever be forgiven. I have confessed my sin so many times, …my promiscuous ways and the abortion I had….
Thank You Lord that at last You have brought peace into my heart for I now realise that You died on the cross to pay the price of all my sin – even those I may yet commit in the future.. Thank You that all my sins are forgiven forever - because Jesus took the punishment that I deserved.
Thank You that my promiscuous ways and the abortion I had is already forgiven at the cross and that I am Your child – simply because I trust in Jesus – thank You Lord… thank You for forgiving all my sin and thank You that because I trust in Jesus, there is NO condemnation on me at all. Thank You for sending this healing balm into my heart and thank You that am forgiven – forever…
Lord I pray that if I hear the voice of accusation in my ears or in my heart that You would help me to lift up my voice in praise to You for You have promised that I am forgiven, by the blood of Jesus, and I am not under condemnation.
Lord I want to live a life that is pleasing to You.. Heal me fully I pray and thank You in Jesus name,
Father I know that you have a plan for each of our lives – and I understand that the main desire for every one of Your children is to know Jesus more and more and to live our life in a manner that is pleasing to You and exults Your holy name.
Father I know that Paul reminded us that as Your children we are to know You.. and the power of Your resurrection and the fellowship in Your sufferings.. and I believe that the way we cope with the various difficulties and dangers, heartaches and sufferings, problems and pain, trials and temptations is connected to the fulfillment of the many plans that You have purposed for us, in our lives.
Help me I pray to face the challenges of life looking to Jesus and relying on His sufficient strength and grace. Help me not to repay evil for evil but to love my enemy, and to do good to those that despitefully use me.
Help me more and more to develop the beautiful fruit of the Spirit – and may an abundance of love and joy, peace and patience, kindness and goodness, faithfulness and self-control overflow from my life into the lives of all I meet - until Christ is formed in me and I live my life as unto Him. May I reflect Your purpose in my life from this day forward to Your praise and glory – this I ask in the name of Jesus my Savior,
Heavenly Father, what an amazing plan of redemption – that God the Son, should set aside His eternal, heavenly glory and be born into His own creation, so that His sinless life-blood, which pulsed through His human veins could be shed, as the full and final payment for the sin of the whole world. His blood was shed for me, and I thank You that His glory was revealed at His first coming, and that by faith in His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection, I have His Holy Spirit indwelling my body. Praise Your holy name that although He was rejected as Your anointed King, at His first advent, the day is coming when as Prince of Peace, He will return to earth, to be crowed as King of Israel and Lord of the whole earth. We thank You that a day is coming when Israel will recognise the Lord Jesus as their King – when He returns in power and great glory to set up His eternal Kingdom – thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.
Loving Father thank You for Your Living Word and Your Written Word and thank You for the truth that it contains. Thank You for Your everlasting grace and mercy towards foolish, frail humanity. Help me to understand Your Word more and more and thank You that You have reserved a place for me with You in heaven, by faith in Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Dear Father, who art in heaven, thank You that YOU are my heavenly Husbandman and that You tend my life with such care and concern. Cleanse me and prune me and take away anything that you discover in me that does not glorify Your holy name.
Thank You Father that I am a heavenly branch that is united to my heavenly Vine, the lovely Lord Jesus Christ. May His life flow through mine as sap flows through the branch that is engrafted into its parent stem. Fill me with and inflow Your fullness so that I may live and move and grow and bear fruit as I abide more and more in You,
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing writings of the prophet Isaiah, and the beautiful truths that He reveals about the Lord Jesus Christ - the Good Shepherd of the sheep, Who gave His life as the ransom price for the sin of the world. We praise You for Your magnificent creation and for the salvation of our soul. May we never cease to wonder at Your might; majesty; dominion and power and praise You for Christ's sacrificial offering on the cross and glorious resurrection from the dead. Thank You that it is simply by faith in Him that we have become Your children. We pray for the people of Israel that many would come to faith in Christ... and look forward to that future day when Israel as a nation will be restored - Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Father Thank You that You are the everlasting God – the eternal Creator, Who cares for me, Your child. Let me never wander into foolish pride or unbelief, for in You is my hope and strength - for You alone are the everlasting Creator, Who does not grow weary and Whose ways are unsearchable – Praise Your holy name in Jesus name, I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that You are a good and gracious God, Who is both long-suffering and full of mercy, justice, comfort and love. Thank You that Your grace is sufficient and that You have promised that those who wait on You and look to Jesus, will rise us with wings as eagles - as we rest in Your strength and trust in Your love - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
Heavenly Lord, I delight to lift up my voice in joyful praise to You and to sing unto the Lord a new song - for You have forgiven me - and seated me together with the Lord Jesus Christ in heavenly places, for which I lift up my voice in joyful praise and everlasting thanksgiving - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Shepherd of the sheep, thank You for Your gracious promises, not only to Israel but to Your new creation in Christ. Thank You that Your promises to all Your children are “Yes” and “Amen” in Christ, in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
What a wonderful God You are, and I praise and thank You for Your grace, wisdom, love and patience towards me, which causes me to rejoice greatly. There is nothing to commend me to You, and yet You have called me and chosen me, saved me and fashioned me to be Your witness to this generation and in the world to come, life everlasting. Thank You for Your gracious character and redeeming love and may I sing forth Your praise, not only with my lips but in my life, for ever and ever, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Thank You Father that I am Your child and that I have a citizenship laid up for me in the heaven, from which we await our coming Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that Your purpose for humanity is all tied up in Him, and that He is to be honored above all rule and authority.. power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.
Thank You Father that You have put all things in subjection under His feet, and given Him as Head over all things to the Church, which is His body - the fullness of Him Who fills all in all.
Heavenly Father, as a part of that Body I pray that I may fulfill the work that You have purposed for me to do. I thank You Father that Your will for my life is to transform me into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ and I pray that my life may reflect His grace and beauty in all I say and do.
I pray that I may willingly submit to the work of the Holy Spirit in my life – even on those occasions when I do not understand.. and ask that all that is of me may decrease and all that is of Christ may increase – until He is all in all in my life.. to Your praise and glory. This I ask in the name of Jesus,
Dear God, we cry to You to send rains to the parched lands of Texas. Lord the rains have been withheld and our fields are becoming like a dust bowl and Lord there is not a single cloud in the sky – and yet You are God and You are the one who poured out rain on the land, when Elijah prayed – and like him Lord we come to You and pray that You would send clouds with rain, much rain and an abundance of rain for the land is dying and we are in great need.
Lord our hope is in You and our trust is in You. Without You Lord we could not survive in this land and we know and acknowledge that fact and so we cry out together to hear our prayers for rains to drench the earth and bring new life to a land that is thirsty and arid.
Forgive us Lord for the times that we have not thanked You for Your ongoing provision – but do not hold that to our account, for You have promised to send water to the earth in due season and so we look to You Lord - we look to You, for our hope is in You alone – for we have no one to help save You.
Loving Father, I praise and thank You for the faithfulness you showed to Your people Israel, and know that you are the same yesterday, today and forever, for You alone are holy and You alone are my God and my Saviour, in Jesus name I pray, 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,
Heavenly Father, thank You that despite man’s futility and foolishness, You have always made Yourself known to Your creation, and pleaded with men to turn to You for salvation and the forgiveness of sins. As the Day of the Lord’s fierce judgement draws ever closer, we pray that unsaved men and women will turn from their foolish ways and look to Jesus, Who alone has the words of eternal life. Thank You that You are a righteous God and a long-suffering Saviour. Thank You that You died for me and rose again for the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting – thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Your invitation to turn to You for salvation remains open today, and that all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved. Thank You for the many that are turning from idol worship to the true and living God. Thank You that Your mercy is new every morning and that all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved - but we pray that many more would turn to You and be saved by grace through faith in Christ - for Your greater praise and glory. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that in spite of man’s rebellion and sinfulness, You did not withhold Your offer of redemption, but make it clear to us, through the mouth of Your holy prophets. Thank You that the truth has gone out to the far corners of the earth.. and that Your offer of redemption will not be revoked – nor Your righteous judgement withheld. While it is still the age of grace, we pray that many would come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and that many souls would be plucked from eternal damnation, by grace through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord, in Whose name we pray, AMEN
Thank You Father for Your constant care and faithfulness throughout my life. Thank You that You will never leave me nor forsake me, even when I become old and forgetful - Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Thank You Father that You are my guide and defender, my rock and my stay. Thank You that You are the same today as You were when You lead the children of Israel through their times of difficulties and oppression. Give me a teachable spirit, listening ears and an attentive heart so that I may learn all that Your Holy Spirit desires to teach me. And continue to guide me I pray, in the way that is best for me, in Jesus name - AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your perfect plan of redemption, and that by grace You formed the Lord Jesus from the womb, to be Israel's suffering Servant and eternal King. Thank You that You chose me to be part of the Body of Christ, so that in Him I might show forth the praises of Him Who has called me out of darkness into His marvellous light. Praise His holy name, AMEN
Precious Lord and heavenly Father, praise Your wonderful goodness for Your gracious compassion. Your promises of love are new every morning – great is Thy faithfulness. In Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word of truth and the many lessons that we can learn from its inspired pages. I pray that I may grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ - the Rock of my salvation, Who gave His life for me so that I can live for Him. I pray that I may not be influenced by the philosophies of this world and the apostasy that is creeping through much of the Church today. Help me to look to Jesus and pursue after righteousness in His strength - and in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Father, How I love You and bless Your wonderful name. Thank You that You are my Rock and my Comforter – my indwelling Helper and Comfort, Who has promised to be with me in all my applications. Keep me I pray under Your wings of precious comfort so that I may be a comfort to others in their time of need – for I know that those that would seek to harm me will fade as the grass of the field, but the Word of the Lord endures for ever – praise Your holy name in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Father, how we bless Your holy name for all Your goodness and graciousness towards all Your children. Thank You that Jesus became the sin-sacrifice, and died for me - and not for me only, but for all who trust in His holy name. Thank You that He was raised from the dead as proof of His pre-eminence among men and highly exulted to the throne of God. Thank You that He is coming back soon as King of Israel, Prince of peace and Judge of the whole world, in Whose name I pray, AMEN
Heavenly Father, the image of Christ in His humiliation as a man who had no exciting outward appearance or desirable human attributes to commend Him to the children of men, for whom He died.. stands in such stark contrast with His divine nature, His holy character, His sinless life; the sacrificial offering Himself - His amazing grace and eternal beauty. Thank You for the remnant of Israel that recognised Christ's first advent and left witness to His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection. I pray that many in Israel will have their blindness removed and we rejoice to know that the day is coming when in happy unison, the nation will recognise their Messiah - at His second advent. To Him be all praise and glory, AMEN
Heavenly Father, when I consider the enormous weight of my sin and the eternal consequences of all my transgressions, I stand amazed and in awe, that You should love me so much that You gave Your only begotten Son to bear all my grief and carry all my sorrow. I am staggered to realise that in order for me to be redeemed and returned into fellowship with the Father, the Lord Jesus Christ was smitten of God and afflicted out of love for me - to Him be all honour and glory, for ever and ever, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You that Christ was lifted up to die on the cross to pay the price for my sin. I am as guilty of His death on the cross as those that falsely accused Him and nailed Him there to die. I am equally to blame and yet I praise and thank You that through faith in His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection I have been redeemed and forgiven of my sin and I praise You that His finished work was sufficient - Hallelujah - what a Saviour - praise His holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Christ became the sacrificial Lamb on my account. Thank You that the eternal Son of God was born as the sinless Son of Man so that He could be my kinsman-redeemer. Thank You that You took the punishment that I deserved and did not open Your mouth to proclaim Your innocence - but endured the cross on my behalf - to Him be all praise and glory, AMEN.
You are a loving and wonderfully gracious God and I thank You and love You for putting the Lord Jesus to grief for my sake and for all who trust in His name. Forgive those that misunderstand the depth of Your love for each of us individually and humanity collectively, knowing that without Christ as our guilt offering we could not have been redeemed to become Your children, Praise Your name for ever and ever, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a great privilege it is to be Your child and to be called by Your name. Thank You that You prove to be such a good and gracious God, Who is very patient and of great goodness. Thank You for the long-suffering mercy You showed to Your people Israel despite their errant ways, and what a confidence I have in You, that Your promises to the Church will similarly never fail. Thank You that You Who started a good work in me will continue it until the day of Christ Jesus, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Loving heavenly Father, Thank You for the gift of my precious children and what a privilege it is to see my grandchildren growing up and learning about You. Thank You Father for each little life and I lift each one up to You Lord, and pray that by Your grace and love You would surround them with Your love, throughout their lives.
Guard and guide them all I pray and uphold and protect them. May each one come to know You Lord as their personal Saviour and may they all come to a deep understanding of all You are and all that You have done for them - Oh Lord I pray most earnestly that each one would accept You into their hearts and lives as their Lord and Saviour.
I pray that as they grow into their teens and become young adults that You would keep their hearts and minds turned to You and trusting in Jesus, for their every need. Protect each one from the philosophies and mindset of the world that are so contrary to the truth of Scripture and may each one grow in grace and become strong in their faith as they develop in wisdom and discernment.
Protect them from the evils of this age, keep them from temptations and help them to live godly lives and to develop as responsible adults who will teach their own children the wonderful truth of Salvation through Christ Jesus our Lord,
Thank You Father that there is nothing in the physical or spiritual realm that can triumph over me and that I am secure, in Christ, against every accusation of the enemy. Help me never to fear those that seek to harm me in word or deed, but rather help me to be a faithful witness of Your steadfast grace in the place where You have put me. In Christ’s name I pray. AMEN.
Loving heavenly Father, forgive my pride in trying to second-guess what You are doing and even trying to tell You at times what is best for my life, when You have a perfect plan and purpose for all Your children. Keep me broken at the cross I pray, and may Your will be done in my life, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Dear Lord, we are facing a sever drought and we plead with You to open the heavens and send rain on this dry and thirsty land. Lord we know that You are the one that sends the rain and You are the one that can withhold the rain, but we pray that You would look down in pity on our waterless land and send the rain to water the land, reviving the land and the people.
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.
Loving Father, I never stop being amazed that You, Who are from everlasting to everlasting, have stooped to save and comfort me and to dwell within my heart by faith. I praise You, for Your grace and mercy and pray that today I may glorify You in my body - in word and in deed, In Jesus name AMEN.
Loving Lord, I come to You and confess my sin of abortion, and ask that Your healing grace would touch my heart today. The remembrance of it is eating me inside and I need Your healing grace and loving forgiveness.
I cast this great burden onto You, knowing that You have promised to heal those that are broken-hearted and to bind up the inner wounds of those that are hurting.
I know that the consequences of our wrong choices can bring much pain, but I also know that You are a God Who has promised to forgive and heal all who come to You with a contrite heart and that You will remember our sins no more.
Forgive me Lord, heal my life.. create in me a clean hear I pray and renew a right spirit within me – this I ask in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, my understanding is so limited of all You are and the untold mysteries that surround the triune Godhead and the incarnate Word of God, and yet You loved me so much that You came in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ to die for my sins.. so that I might receive the good tidings of great joy which have been given to for people.. so that by grace through faith in Him I have been forgiven of my sins. Thank You for binding up my broken and bleeding heart. Thank You that in Christ I have been set free from the bondage to sin, the curse of the Law and enslavement by Satan. Thank You in Jesus name, 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,
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for Your many gifts of pardon, peace and purity – of faith, hope and love. But above all we bless and thank You in Jesus name, for the greatest of all gifts, in the person of Your dearly beloved Son, Who died to redeem us with His precious blood, and Who lives forever within our hearts. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a gracious God You are.. for Your mercies are new every morning and Your promises last from one generation to another. Thank You that You are a God Who forgives the sins of ALL who call on the name of the Lord Jesus for salvation - to Him be all praise and glory, for ever and ever, AMEN.
Father God, we thank You that You have promised to be with us no matter what difficult circumstances invade our lives and we lift up our many brothers and sisters in Christ who are facing increasingly hard times. We are watching and waiting for the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ and join with the Spirit in praying: Come Lord Jesus. In these increasingly difficult times, we ask for Your strength and courage to face whatever lies ahead, knowing that nothing can separate us from the love of God, which in Christ Jesus. AMEN.
Lord, give me the purity, integrity and focus to be the kind of vessel You would desire.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of Israel's faithful little remnant, who continued to trust You, in spite of all the suffering and pain they endured. Keep me from being discouraged by all that is happening in my life and the wider world, and may I continue to trust You in all things - knowing that Your plans and purposes are perfect, and that Your promises are all 'yes' and 'amen'.. in Christ Jesus our Lord, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
O God, our Father, help us to see ourselves as children who seek guidance; children who walk in the midst of many dangers.
Help us not to be afraid so long as we walk close to Thee. Thy ways, O God are higher than our ways and often we do not understand. Teach us, O God, that we do not have to understand but to trust and Thou wilt see us through every difficulty in life.
When Thou art near, I am not afraid, I want to “draw nigh to God” in the assurance that when I do, He will “draw nigh unto me,”
In Jesus’ name,
Heavenly Father, what a comfort and joy to know that You know and understand the deepest longings of our heart. Thank You that You know the end before the beginning and hear and answer the prayers of Your people before the request forms in our heart or crosses our lips. Thank You for beautifying our requests and providing the answer that is best for us. Teach me to pray into Your will for my life and align my heart's desires to Your perfect will. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for my Mom and for all the love and patience that she has tirelessly given to me throughout my life. I am so grateful for her and although I don’t often show her how much I love her.. I do want to thank You with all my heart for blessing me with my dear mother.
Thank You for all the sacrifices that she has made for me on so many occasions and for the way that she never seems to think about her own needs, but always tries to do what is best for me.. and I am also very grateful for her faithful prayers for me, day by day.. for I know that they has been instrumental in keeping me steady on those occasions when I might have gone astray.
I pray Your special blessing on my Mom and ask that You would guard her and protect her with good health and fill her with Your comfort and joy - and may she grow ever closer to You in the days that lie ahead – this I ask in Jesus name
