Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me and convicting me of sin and righteousness and judgement and thank You that by faith in Christ I have been brought into Your kingdom and placed into His body. To You alone belongs my reverential fear, humble worship and eternal devotion, through time and into eternity - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for placing us in families and for giving us the understanding that parents are ordained by You, to train up their children in the reverential fear of the Lord. In a world where honour and respect for both parents and older mentors is becoming increasingly scorned, we pray that children and young people would be willing to listen to their fathers' words of instruction, and to hold fast to the teachings they receive from their mothers. We pray Your protection over Christian families everywhere, and pray that Your name would be honoured and respected by old and young alike - to Your praise and glory - this we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Oh Lord, I am ill and feel frightened and alone as I have no one to care for me. I have no one who is really interested in me at all, and I feel lost and alone and so vulnerable. And now Lord Jesus, I have come down with this sickness and I feel so ill. Lord, I ask You please to make me well again soon, and lift up my sagging spirit, I pray.
I know Lord in my heart that I am not alone, because You are with me, which is the real reason that I am praying to You now, because You promised to be with me and never to leave me or forsake me, even when everyone else does. Be with me now I pray, and reach out Your healing hand of blessing and touch me Lord. Please make me feel better, not only in my body but also in my life, I pray.
Thank You, that I can call on You in times of trouble or illness or loneliness, and know that You are always there to hear and answer, to heal and comfort and help. Lord, I pray that You would help me to really apply this truth in my life, not just when I am sick, but every day.
