Heavenly Father, we know that every good and perfect gift comes from You and that children are a special heritage from the Lord. But Father, we also know that the enemy of our soul seeks to kill and destroy all that is from You, and especially the lives of little babies in the womb.
And so we lift up all women who may be planning to have an abortion, or who have been deceived into thinking that this is a woman’s right, rather than a sin against their creator God, and we pray that You would create in their hearts a desire to do what is right and a realisation of the evil that surrounds the practice of abortion, that they themselves are considering
Bring into the life of each mother those that would give godly counsel and change the hearts of those who have already made a decision to go down the route of abortion.
Instil in the heart of each woman a deep love for the baby they are carrying, and we pray that many may be prompted to turn from their planned abortion and look to the Lord Jesus, for the grace do what is right. This we ask in Jesus' name,
Dear God, it 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 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. Look down in pity I pray on my brother, and help him become free. In Jesus' name I pray,
Heavenly Father, I thank You for the dear friends that You have brought into my life and for the love and comfort that I have received from them over the years. I pray that I would develop the many qualities of genuine friendship and that You would use me to be a friend to others in their times of need - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Proverbs 17:17
