Dear heavenly Father, thank You for the reminder in Jeremiah that you formed each one of us in the womb and thank You that You have scheduled every day of my life. Thank You for the example of Jeremiah the prophet, who was willing to suffer hardship, loneliness, pain and rejection for the furtherance of Your will and to pen portions of holy Scripture for our learning. I pray that from this day forward my life may be consecrated to You and that You would use me to fulfil Your will in my life, for Your greater praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN. 

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of Jeremiah, who was used by You to tell both Jew and Gentile the message You gave Him to speak. Thank You that You can use anyone, who is ready and willing to hear and answer Your call. Thank You that You have promised that Your grace is sufficient – when in faith we respond to Your leading and guidance. Lord, here am I – send me, in Jesus name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times I have not listened to Your voice or responded to Your word, but followed my own way and been influenced by things that dishonour Your name. Keep me low at the cross and broken before You. Open my ears to hear Your voice and open my eyes so that I may follow in Your way. As I consider Israel's failure to listen to Your word and obey Your voice, help me to be attentive to all that You would teach me, and may I honour Your name in all I am and all I do, to Your praise and glory, This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

For America As A Nations - Who Has Lost Its Way

Loving Lord, I come to You to place the once great nation of United States of America at Your feet, knowing that our great country and its constitution was made for a moral and religious people and is wholly inadequate for any other form of government, and yet we have strayed so far from the principles and practices of our great founders – who drew up our constitution based on Your Word.

But Lord although this was once the land of the brave and the home of the free, sadly there is so much that is wrong with our country that I fear for its future. Lord as a people we have walked away from You and discredited Your holy name by the way that we have conducted ourselves over the past few years and there is no health in our land.

Look down in pity on our people and our land and protect us from those that seem determined on destroying our nation. Send Your Spirit I pray through the land of America and touch the hearts of all those that are called by Your name to plead on behalf our people. Convict those that are damaging our infrastructure and as a nation may we turn away from our wicked ways and return You to Your rightful position – in integrity and truth.

I ask this in Jesus name.

Amen
“In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.”

I pray that I may be faithful to my calling and walk in the way of peace and righteousness, for Your name's sake.. even when I am opposed by family or friends. Keep me low and the cross and broken before you I pray, and may I walk in spirit and truth towards the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.  May I die to self and live for Christ alone for Your greater praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, it is with a grieving heart that we come before You to plead for our national leaders, who have been so deceived by the satanic system that has relegated God to the realms of the irrelevant. And we pray for Christendom in particular, for the shocking way that we have allowed the world to so influence our thinking to the extent that we have lost sight of who we are in Christ. Look down on us with pity and mercy we pray and may You graciously pluck many from the brands before that great and terrible day of the Lord. This we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Prayer To Find The Root Of My Health Problem

Heavenly Father, I seem to have been hit with a number of ailments all at the same time, and the doctors do not seem to know why this has happened, or how to treat me. Lord, You know exactly what is wrong with my body and I ask that You would direct me toward the right treatment- not just to mask the conditions that have invaded my body, but to search out the root of the problem, and enable it to be cured, I pray.

Lord, I know that we are fearfully and wonderfully made and that You even know the number of hairs on my head. You knew me before I was born and scheduled every day of my life – so this illness is nothing unexpected to You. Heal me Lord I pray – in whatever way seems best to You.

Lord, show me what I ought to do, I pray - if I need to change my eating habits, eliminate something from my diet or do something I have not thought about, I ask that You would direct me, or prompt someone else give me some advice.

Lord I wait on You and pray that in Your time and in Your way You will not only restore my body to full health and strength – but that You would give me Your peace and serenity in my heart – knowing that in all things, I am safe in the arms of my Saviour, in Whose name I pray,

Amen.
