Praise for the First and Second Advents of the Lord

Dear Father God, how we rejoice when we call to our minds the glorious truth that the eternal Light of the world came to earth as a baby to become the Redeemer of mankind – to give His life for a lost world and to pour peace and hope into the hearts of a people who were estranged from their Creator God.

Father may our lives reflect His love as we look back in time to the first Advent of our Lord and Saviour – but let us never forget that there is a future Advent – a second coming when the earth will be filled with the glory of God once again – as the waters cover the sea.

Lord we know that You are returning and not as a tiny baby lying in a humble manger and wrapped in swaddling clothes but as a conquering King Who is to come to rescue His people Israel.

But Lord we know that first You are to come in the clouds to take Your church back to Your heavenly home – when the dead in Christ will rise first and we will all be changed in a moment - to become like unto You Lord Jesus.

Lord I pray that Your Church will prepare herself for Your soon return. Lord I pray that Your Body will be ready for that glorious day when You come to take us home to be with Yourself. Lord I beseech You that Your bride – who is the Church will be pure and holy, without spot and wrinkle or any such thing.. and Lord.. start that work in ME I pray, in Jesus name

Amen
“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.”
(Malachi 3:1)

Heavenly Father, thank You that in Christ there is no condemnation, but sadly, the world is full of men and women who have remained deaf to Your Word, disobedient to Your command and defiant to Your truth. In judgement we pray that you would remember mercy and ask that in the days that are left in this age of grace.. many would come to faith in Christ for the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting - this we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:”
(Malachi 3:2)

Heavenly Father, how we praise and thank You that You are the same yesterday, today and forever. Thank You that Your promises to both Israel and the Church are fixed in heaven because of Your goodness and faithfulness. Forgive us for the way that we have gone against You and followed after our own foolish ways and desires. Search my heart I pray and may I be cleansed and made pure in my inner being. Thank You that You have promised that in Christ I shall come forth as purified gold and silver ..to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray. AMEN.

“And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.”

Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that You are the unchanging and unchangeable God. Great is Your faithfulness to Your people of Israel and great is Your faithfulness to the Church - the Body of Christ. Thank You that Your word remains fixed forever and that Your promises to both Israel and the Church can never change.. for You are the immutable God Whose word stands fast for ever and ever. We praise Your name for ever and ever, AMEN.

“For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”

Prayer For Abundant Rain in Drought

Living Lord and heavenly Father, You alone are good and You alone richly provide for all the needs and the necessities of life – and in Your loving-kindness You give us over and above all that we ask or think. Thank You for Your steadfast love and gracious provision to us and to all Your creation.

Forgive us the times when we have taken Your provision for granted and the times when we have failed to thank You and give You the honour and gratitude that You deserve – and thank You that even though we have failed to acknowledge all that You give us day by day You faithfully provide us richly all things to enjoy. But Lord we come to You now, knowing that we are facing a drought in this region and we ask You to send abundant rain on the earth, which has become dry, thirsty and arid.

Look down in pity our plight we pray. It is not only the plants that are silting but even the animals and people on this place are parched and dry – and send us the rain that we so desperately need. Open the windows of heaven we pray with the sweet rainfall that we so desperately need and water our land we pray - and we will give You all the praise and glory due to Your holy name,

Amen

“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”
(Malachi 3:10)
