Heavenly Father, thank You for laying out so clearly the principles and practices that should govern our lives as we die to self and live for God. Thank You that my salvation does not rely on what I have done but on what Christ has done on my account. Lord at times I have tried to do things in my own strength, only to fail. Help we to live aright and pray according to Your word and will. Give me an understanding heart and the desire to live and work and pray in a manner that honours Your holy name. I praise and thank You that You are my sole Provider and I pray that I may pray according to Your will, seek to grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus and submit to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the warning of false prophets and professors in your Word. I pray that you would guard the hearts and minds of all your children and protect them from false prophets and ungodly professors who seek to devour the flock. Help us identify the fruit of those in positions of leadership in the Church who come to us in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves... and give us discernment to know the truth and reject those who do not discern Your will. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN. 

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”

Prayer For Rain In A Drought

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.


“And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.”
(Matthew 7:25)
