Sometimes Lord, I confess that when things get tough I try in my own strength to sort out my own problems - and work out what I ought to do myself, without turning to You first… and inevitably I seem to make the wrong choice…I know that You have a plan for my life – and I also know that living in this world is not easy – but I also know that my sufficiency is in You and that Your strength is made perfect as I rest in You – help me to apply this truth in my life.
Guide me Lord through all the obstacles of life and help me with the many choices I have to make on a daily basis. May I truly learn to look to You as my Guide and Strength, in Jesus name I pray,
Dear Loving Lord, how grieved I am that my precious grandchild whom I love so dearly has chosen to walk away from you and to seemingly forge a future without God in their life.
Lord You know that this dear grandchild has been taught the truth of Scripture from the cradle and has been covered in pray from many quarters – even before being born. And Lord, You know that as a child they were taught the truth of the Lord Jesus and even made a commitment at an early age to accept You as their Saviour… Father it grieves and saddens me and I plead with You to intervene in their life and bring them back to You..
Father I know that nothing can snatch Your little lambs from Your hands or Your Father’s hands –and I trust You Lord, that You will keep Your hand upon my grandchild so that they return into Your loving arms of forgiveness….
Thank You Lord that even we become careless and unfaithful to You- You never give up on us.. Lord I trust the future of my grandchild into YOUR hands and pray that whatever it takes – You would draw them back into the way of truth, in Jesus name I pray,
Dear God, is saddens me so much that my dear brother has become dependent on alcohol and he is so young to have been dragged into this destructive life-style. Lord it is having a very serious effect on his relationship with his whole family and he seems to have thrown away his life, which was so promising – and it saddens me deeply.
Lord He seems to have been dragged in so deeply into this addiction that I fear that he is unlikely to emerge from it – but my trust is in You and I pray that in Your love and grace You will reach down and convict him of his need of You and draw him back into a right relationship with You..
Father I know he needs to take responsibility for this serious addiction- but I know that at times it can be seen as an illness – Lord look down in pity I pray on my brother and help him become free – in Jesus name I pray,
