Prayer for Luke 12 ►
Lord Jesus I come to You because when I look at the hard times that we are facing – my heart seems to fail as I don’t know which way to turn – except to You. Thank You that You have always been there for me and thank You that you have always come through with Your help in time of need - always at the right time and always in the right way.
Keep me from fear of what tomorrow may bring, knowing that I do not need to be afraid or fearful, because You have promised supply all my needs according to Your riches in mercy.
Thank YOU Lord, for Your Word which has so many beautiful truths and wonderful promises …that You are always there to help when times are hard – and thank You for this scripture from the Bible, which someone gave me today: do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Thank You for this lovely truth and for the many promises that You have given to all Your children. May my heart rest in You Lord and keep me from fear in these difficult times, in Jesus name I pray,
“But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”

Spirit of the living God – fall afresh on me and sustain me with Your goodness - so that I may be a vessel that is fit to do Your bidding, Break me of my self-will and mould me into the person that You desire me to be – that I may be a witness to Your grace and speak boldly of Your great salvation – and help me to be ready always to give an answer for the hope that I have in Christ Jesus, my Lord,
In whose name I pray.
“But God said unto him, Thou
fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?”

Loving Lord, You have placed us all in families and have, by Your own authority, established Your own statutes and laws. Thank You for placing us all in families and for my own family, in particular.
Thank You for the clarity with which You have taught us in Your word how that family that is seeking to do Your will, behaves… and the rolls that each of us holds within our own special family unit.
Thank You Lord, that You are our Father and have authorised the man of the home to take the place of authority, as the head of the family - just as You yourself are the Head of the family of God. May the men who are in this responsible role behave in a manner that is pleasing to You, by treating their wives with love and respect and their children with loving discipline and wise counsel. May they each become men after Your own heart as they assume their God-given role in their own homes.
May wives be gentle and gracious and willing to act in the crucial role of helper that You, Yourself have graciously placed them – may wives reflect the great love that Christ had for the Father and the sweet gentleness of the Holy Spirit – just as Jesus demonstrated these qualities in His own life… by submitting graciously to the Father’s will and desiring to do only those things that are pleasing to Him Give wives wisdom in the way that they behave towards their men-folk and may they grow in grace more and more as they walk in the steps of the lovely Lord Jesus Christ – Who was so full grace and truth.
Thank You for the heritage and gift of children, who we understand are a gift from God – a gift that has been lent from the Lord and a gift that You have graciously placed in so many families. And we pray that You would give all parents the grace and wisdom to teach and discipline their children in loving-kindness– and may the children themselves respect their parents and recognise the privilege they have in being part of a godly family unit. Loving Lord thank You for my family – and into YOUR hands I commit my family, from this day forward, even for evermore.
“But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes
. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.”

Lord, what a mess we have both caused in our relationship and though we are both to blame in one way or another.. between us we have walked away from a special relationship that we both felt was brought about by Your grace.
Please Lord, visit my boyfriend and me – we are both miserable and we both are smarting from some of the unkind things that we said to each other. We have both acted childishly and unwisely and we need to face this difficulty soon - if we are ever going to be reconciled.
Lord we both need to be forgiven and I certainly repent of my part in our break-up – I ask Your forgiveness and pray that You will teach me how to live in a manner that is pleasing to You and not to gratify my own desires.
Lord whatever happens, in Your strength I pray that I will not play emotional ‘blackmail’ with another person. Keep me for childish stupidity and I pray that in Your grace You would bring us both to a point where we can be reconciled back to each other and have learned by our mistakes – Make me more like Jesus I pray.
Thank You Lord Jesus,
“When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art
in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.”
