Father I want to lift up my hands and voice to worship You in thanksgiving and praise, for all the goodness and loving-kindness that You so freely pour out on me.. with every passing day.
Thank You for the grace that You supply moment by moment and day by day and I pray that You would develop in me a true attitude of gratefulness and a heart that acknowledges the long-suffering way that You are working in so many area of my life.
Lord I am so very grateful to You and pray that You would keep my heart filled with appreciation for all You have done for me.. and develop in me a godly attitude of gratefulness – so that I may never cease to praise You for Your gracious goodness to me and to all people.
May I learn to recognise that all the gifts and graces I have is a result of Your loving-kindness towards me. and may I never cease to lift up my hands and voice to You in grateful praise for all You are doing in my life. May the Lord Jesus be glorified I pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You for helping me along the way to recovery from my addiction to alcohol. Thank You Father, for lifting me up out of the miry clay, saving me from my pit of despair and setting my feet on solid ground. Thank You that You cared enough for me.. to be there throughout my recovery.. to uphold me with Your righteous right hand, as You poured out grace and mercy to help, in time of need.
I repent of my foolish decline into alcoholism and confess my reluctance to admit that I was getting swept into an increasingly ungodly lifestyle. Forgive my selfish foolishness and thank You from the bottom of my heart for setting me on the right path to freedom in Christ by putting a new song in my mouth – even praise to my God.
Oh the joy and peace of knowing and trusting the Lord Jesus Christ. You have performed wonders in my life and I praise the good work that You are doing in me. Thank You for the freedom I have found in You as You have gently led me along the path to recovery from alcoholism. You are my God and have performed great and mighty wonders in me, and I praise Your holy name for ever and ever,
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.
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,
