Heavenly Father, we thank You for every life that has been born from above and is now in union with Christ Jesus our Head and Saviour. Guard and guide each one, and protect their hearts and minds from the deceit and lies that only come for the devil, who is the father of all lies, the great deceiver of men's souls and a murderer from the beginning. Guide each one we pray, into the way of truth and give them wisdom and sound judgement, to recognize the workings of the mystery of iniquity.
Into Your hands we place each blood-bought child of God, and pray Your protection on their lives. Give them discernment to choose the good and reject the evil, and may each one come to a deeper knowledge of Christ and develop a thirst to know You more and more, individually as believers and collectively as the Church of Christ. We pray that all You purpose for each of Your children, may be accomplished in each life, to Your praise and glory. We ask this in the precious name of Jesus,
Heavenly Father, we come to You today to intercede for our nation and the nations of the world that are in such commotion and disarray, and are so antagonistic towards You, and hateful towards the Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for the sins of the world. Lord, there are so many that have been blinded by the lies of the enemy and who have been prevented from seeing the glorious gospel of the grace of God, but are entrapped by Satan and a slave to sin.
Lord, it is not Your will that any should perish but that all should come to faith in Jesus Christ, and so we pray that You would look down with pity on the nations of the world and the many that are dead in their sins, and who face an eternity - separated from their Creator. Open the eyes of those that are spiritually blind and unblock the ears of those that are spiritually deaf.
Soften the hearts of those that have pridefully rejected the free gift of salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and draw many we pray, who are spiritually lost into a saving faith in Christ. We pray against the many different strongholds that are imprisoning the hearts and minds of so many, and ask that the satanic deceptions that have entrapped so many, will be exposed for what they are.
Shine down the sunshine of Your hope into this lost and dying world, and help us not to grow weary in interceding, but rather may we find the grace to plead more intensely, knowing that the time is so short. We ask this in Jesus' name,
Father, we pray that You would be very close to all our brothers and sisters in Christ in these troublesome times, which are causing so many hearts to fail within, for fear of what is coming on the world.
Thank You, that no matter how far apart we may be, we are all part of Your family and all have been redeemed by the blood of Christ and made eternally secure in Him. We ask that Your perfect peace would flood into each troubled heart, and that they may be prompted to turn to Jesus as their ever-present help in time of trouble, so that they may not to be overwhelmed by the trials and tribulations that they are facing.
Turn the trials and difficulties of each one into a time when they discover a deeper intimacy with You, so that each heart may be flooded with Your perfect peace. Your beautiful peace, which is beyond our comprehension, but which is promised to all, who by prayer and supplication look to Jesus, and make their requests known to Him. May each one confidently cast all their cares upon Him, knowing that He cares for each one of his own.
Encourage and strengthen all Your blood-bought children and may they find a deep assurance in Your precious promises, no matter what fiery trials they may be facing today. May they embrace their trials knowing that the extent to which they are called to partake of Christ’s sufferings is a measure of the exceeding great joy that is set before them in heavenly places. In Jesus' name we pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You that in Your Word, You have given us all we need to mature in the faith, to grow in grace and to live godly in Christ Jesus. We pray that all Your children may become like new-born babes who cry out in longing for the pure milk of the Word of God. Develop in each one an insatiable desire to know more of You and to know You more intimately, so that individually and corporately we may grow up and mature in every aspect of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is our Saviour and Head.
Strengthen each one we pray, knowing that in Christ we can do all things, but may we never forget that without Him at the helm of our lives we can achieve nothing in the spiritual realm.
Thank You, Father, that You are able to make all grace abound in the lives of each of all Your children, if only we will abide in Christ and walk in spirit and truth. We pray that in the power of the Holy Spirit, You would give us all sufficiency in everything and use us as You choose, in Your service, to Your praise and glory.
Give us discernment we pray, so that we may not be carried away by the error of unprincipled men, and prevent us from falling from our own steadfastness and faith, but enable us to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and into the day of eternity. In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, we praise and thank You for the many people throughout our world that have come to trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary, and that together we make up the body of Christ and are united together in Him.
May we be faithful to lift up our brothers and sisters in Christ, wherever they may be. We pray that each one may be filled to overflowing with the knowledge of Jesus Christ our Saviour. May each of Your children be granted all spiritual wisdom, grace, understanding and love for each other, so that through the power of Your Holy Spirit we may walk worthy of our calling in Christ.
We pray that Your Body may grow together in unity and love, not compromising with worldly standards but walking in spirit and truth, and living a life that is pleasing to You in thought, word and deed. Strengthen each one we pray, with all power, according to Your riches in glory, so that together as one we may show forth the beautiful fruit of the Spirit and be endowed with steadfastness and patience, wisdom and love.
Keep us ever looking to Jesus, and may the wonder and joy we have in Him continue to grow in His grace, until we stand before His very Presence, when He comes to take us to be with Himself forever. Thank You, that Your Word contains all we need to live godly in Christ Jesus and to walk in spirit and truth. In Jesus' name,
