Heavenly Father - the Lord Jesus Himself said that those that are pure in heart are truly blessed, but Lord I know that of myself I can never attain the standard of purity that You require. Lord, I know that only as I allow the Holy Spirit to live in me, work through me – to teach and train me will I come to that purity of heart that only comes from You – as You conform Your children into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus.
Lord for too long I have been smugly comparing myself advantageously with others around me, and believing that I was pure in Your eyes - but now that I have come to realise that the only standard to which You are comparing me is the Lord Jesus, I humbly kneel before You, at the foot of Your throne and ask your forgiveness for my self-indulgent pride and ego-centricity. May I look to Jesus and live as He lived in spirit and truth – seeking only to do Your will and to live a life that honour You.
Search my heart and purify my thoughts and may Your indwelling Holy Spirit identify any pride and self-importance that is lurking within, and conform me day by day into the likeness of the Lord Jesus – and help me to make the right choices in my life.. the choices that honour You, in Jesus name I pray,
Amenm You – as You conform Your children into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus.

Father God, please teach ME Your ways, and guide me along the best path for my life, for without You my feet would slip - and I will give You all the praise and the glory in Jesus name, AMEN.
What a wonderfully faithful God You are to all who trust in Your name. Thank You for the example of men like David who remind us that Your goodness and mercy lasts from generation to generation and that all You have promised in Your Word is true and sure. I pray that I may be a man after God's own heart, who maintains my trust in You despite the difficult circumstances that I am facing, knowing that You will both provide for me and protect me as You have promised, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, too often my old sin nature calls on me to take hold of the reins of my life instead of abiding in You and resting in Your promises. Help me to learn to wait on You and to be of good courage, knowing that You are in perfect control of my life - and all I am called upon to do is to quietly wait FOR You to act on my behalf and to confidently wait ON You with prayer and worships and a heart of thanksgiving and praise, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father I praise and thank You for Your loving-kindness and long-suffering towards me and all Your children. Thank You that no matter what difficulty and pain I may go through in this life, that weeping will be replaced with laughter and pain with joy, in Jesus name, AMEN.
Loving Lord, we lift before You the fathers of aborted babies and the emotional trauma that can often affect them, knowing that they are often excluded from the decision to terminate a pregnancy.
We pray that You would be close to those who have been left emotionally distraught and grieving for the little life that they were denied.
We pray Your comfort upon all men who have been affected by abortion in this way and ask that You would give solace and succour to all who are grieving for the son or daughter that they will never see. This we ask in Jesus name,

Lord Jesus, my heart is aching as I had an abortion a long time ago and I still feel guilty for I know now that what I did was wrong –it was a sin against You Lord - but Father at the time I was frightened. I was pregnant – but now I realise that my sin was against You in so many ways and that the responsibility is mine – Oh God, I have wondered if I could ever be forgiven. I have confessed my sin so many times, …my promiscuous ways and the abortion I had….
Thank You Lord that at last You have brought peace into my heart for I now realise that You died on the cross to pay the price of all my sin – even those I may yet commit in the future.. Thank You that all my sins are forgiven forever - because Jesus took the punishment that I deserved.

Loving heavenly Father, You put us into families and set a father as the leader and role model for each family… but Lord there are many families that are being torn apart by a husband and father that has become addicted to alcohol.
Knowing the devastating nature of this disease, I pray that You would prompt each one to turn away from this evil habit to become the responsible husband and father that You desire each one to be.
Lord we know that there are many alcoholic husbands that abuse their wives both physically and emotionally and that many children are also placed in danger, due to abuse from an alcoholic father – and also Lord, that such drinking habits can often leave families with insufficient money to live on.
Protect all those that are vulnerable from all forms of abuse and convict such men of the responsibilities of being loving husbands and dependable fathers – and Lord we pray that they turn from their evil ways to turn to the Lord Jesus – knowing that only in You is true freedom found.
Thank You Father – I commit all families that are in this position into Your safe-keeping,

Oh Lord Jesus, how difficult life has become due to my husbands excessive drinking of alcohol – well it is now really become alcohol addition. Life has become so hard, almost unbearable.. and his temper is at times out of control- and Lord, I am beginning to fear for our safety.
Lord You know that this is splitting our family apart and at times I despair that this addiction to alcohol will ever be overcome.

Loving Father I understand more and more the importance of humility of heart, a contrite spirit and the need to be broken before You so that the beautiful character of the Lord Jesus can be formed and developed in me. Search me O God and show me areas where I have not yet submitted to Your leading and guidance, for I desire my life to be a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to You in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for reaching down to me and making Yourself known to me in so many wonderful ways.

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.

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.

Give me the grace to recognise any impure areas in my life that need to be rooted out – and make me willing to engage in the painful process of having all that dishonours Your name cut away.. by the Holy Spirit’s scalpel of truth. Help me to keep the eyes of my heart fixed on Jesus Christ my Lord and grant me the purity of heart and integrity of spirit that is becoming of a vessel fit for Your use.

Guide me aright that I may say and do all that is pleasing in Your sight and may my life glorify Your holy name, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
O God, our Father, help us to see ourselves as children who seek guidance; children who walk in the midst of many dangers.
Help us not to be afraid so long as we walk close to Thee. Thy ways, O God are higher than our ways and often we do not understand. Teach us, O God, that we do not have to understand but to trust and Thou wilt see us through every difficulty in life.
When Thou art near, I am not afraid, I want to “draw nigh to God” in the assurance that when I do, He will “draw nigh unto me,”
In Jesus’ name,
