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
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.
Oh Lord, I had an abortion.. thinking it was for the best, but the grief and guilt I have felt ever since I took that decision.. has haunted me, and I feel so ashamed of myself and riddled with guilt, by allowing a little life to be taken in this way.
My heart is so heavy and I find that I am not able to think about anything else and realise more and more that it is against You Lord, that I have sinned and done this great wrong.
Lord I feel broken inside and pray for Your healing and comfort. You have promised to mend the broken-hearted and to set those that are captive to guilt and shame free – and Lord, You have promised forgiveness and restoration to all who come humbly to Your throne of grace and confess their wrongdoing. My hope is in You, for You alone can restore the joy of my salvation.
Thank You for that You are a forgiving God, Whose mercies are new every morning and that You that You have promised to carry all our guilt and burdens.. and so I hand this over to You today, and ask for the healing and restoration that only You can give – and the grace to forget what is past and move on with You as my guide – I ask this in Jesus name,
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 I am so grateful for my work,, and I want to praise and thank You that You have graciously provided this for job me.
Thank You that through my work I am enabled to provide for our daily needs and necessities, and I give You all the praise and glory.
I pray that I may work in my job in a manner that is honouring to Your name,, and keep me willing and able I pray.. to perform all the tasks and duties that are set before me, with integrity and diligence.
Thank You for the other workers and team members here and I am grateful for the many lessons that You are teaching me through this position. May Jesus continue to be glorified in all I say and do in His name I pray,
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,
Dear heavenly Father, thank You for the lives of each of my lovely grandchildren that You have so graciously brought into my life – and which give me such joy and pleasure - for which I praise and thank You.
Lord You have scheduled every day of their lives and I pray that as they grow up into adulthood You would continue to lead and guide - to instruct and to correct. Father I also pray that You would develop in each one a heavenly perspective and a true understanding of the Christian life and spiritual maturity so that they grow in grace and in a right relationship with You.
Bring the right spouse into the life of each of these dear grandchildren of mine I pray. In Your grace I pray that they be granted the husband or wife of Your choice, so that together they may become a threefold cord with You – which is not easily broken..
Thank You Lord so much for every one of my grandchildren…Into YOUR hands I commit each one and may they sense Your calling on their lives, so that they develop into mighty men and women who love You deeply and trust in You implicitly, in Jesus name I pray,
Dear Lord God, I seek a true inner purity that only comes from You and I come to You, knowing that I stand unclean, impure and wretched before Your perfect throne of purity and truth. Lord I ask Your forgiveness for the way that I have not honoured You with my body – knowing that I have engaged in many impure acts and unchaste thoughts. I confess that I am unworthy to even kneel before Your perfect presence – and yet I now understand that Christ died to pay the price for all my sins and all my impurities. 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. Help me to keep my outward actions and inner thoughts pure before Your eyes – whether I am in the public view or hid in a secret place, and away from the gaze of the world’s eye.
Purify the eyes of my heart and help me to keep the focus of my mind on the Lord Jesus - and develop in me I pray, thoughts, words, deeds and motives that are pure in Your sight and that will honour Your Holy name, in Jesus name I pray,
Fill me Father with Your Spirit of the Vine of Christ Jesus my Lord and may I bring forth fruit, more fruit – much fruit to glorify Your Holy name – I pray in Jesus name, my precious heavenly Vine,
