For Families With An Alcoholic Father

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,

Prayer of Thanks at Bedtime

Loving Father, thank You Lord, for being with me throughout today and for Your hand of blessing on my life. Thank You for the way that You have led and guided me throughout this day and I pray Your loving grace would rest on all that I have done – may it be to Your praise and glory.

Loving Lord You are my strength and my sufficiency and I pray that as I settle down for the night that You would enable me to drift into a deep and quiet sleep and a peaceful rest. Remove any little tensions that may have built up over the day so that I may wake refreshed in the morning and ready and willing to do Your bidding.

Guard my unconscious thoughts Lord and cover me with Your love. Draw me ever closer into Your loving arms I pray, in Jesus name. Praise Your name for ever and ever…

Amen

Prayer for Personal Accountability

Lord Jesus it says in Your Word, examine Yourself to see it you are in the faith – Lord I realise that this is not talking to unbelievers but to all of us who are Your children, in Christ Jesus. Lord help me to examine myself, and all that I am, and all that I am learning from You and Your word, so that I truly may say with conviction :-I know in Whom I have believed and am walking in the path on which He has placed me.

Keep me also from critical thoughts of others, and prevent me Lord, from having a spirit of control – or by pretending to hold others accountable to You when the beam in my own eye is greater than the speck that is in my brothers’ eyes.

Keep me humble before Your throng of grace and may I walk the way of the cross day be day - with the Spirit as my teacher and the Word of God washing me clean. Thank You for all my Christian friends and brothers and keep us all walking close to You in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name I pray,

Prepare Our Hearts In This Time Of Advent

Heavenly Father thank You for the opportunity for us to once again examine our hearts during this lovely time of Advent, and the faith in Christ Jesus that we confess.

Keep our hearts aglow with love for Jesus and help to wonder more and more about amazing the grace that You have shown towards sinful man, in sending Your only begotten Son to come to earth, as a tiny human baby - so that He could bear the punishment for the sins of the whole world on His holy shoulders.

It never ceases to amaze us that Christ Jesus should set aside His heavenly glory and be conceived of the Holy Spirit by the virgin Mary, birthed into the human family as the promised Seed of the woman and be worshipped as a tiny baby in a humble stable at Bethlehem, by simple shepherds and singing angels alike.

It was Love incarnate that visited the earth so many years ago and that same love that saved us from our sins and came to dwell within the hearts of all that trust in Jesus as Saviour. Heavenly Father, accept our grateful sacrifice of praise – and may we come to know You more and love You better in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name we pray,

Amen

Prayer For All Babies

How we praise and thank You for the precious little lives of all new-born babies, little toddlers and young children, knowing that each one is special to You and was known in Your heart, even before conception.
 
Thank You that You have scheduled every day of each little life.. and we praise and thank You for the special plans and purposes You have for every single new-born child – for all babies and infants.

Help Me To Give You My Anxieties

Lord I don’t want to be anxious about anything, knowing that I can cast all of my anxious thoughts on You - but how difficult I find it to cast all my care on You, before I start to worry – what often happens is that I become more and more anxious over all the difficulties of life that are crowding in on me … and eventually I turn my thoughts to You and reach out to You in my helplessness.

Lord, in my understanding of Who You are I KNOW that You always are my Rock in times of troubles and over and again I have seen You help in time of need… but very rarely do You act in the way that I expect!!

Lord I know that I am not to be anxious about the provision of life and the needs of the home - nor am I to fret over the actions and attitudes of evildoers, who seem to encompass me on every side, for I KNOW and BELIEVE that the day is coming when evildoers will wither away like the grass of the field, as Your Word teaches - while those that trust in the Lord will dwell securely, under the shadow of Your wings.

Help me Lord to cast my anxious thoughts on You BEFORE I start to fret. Help me to reach out to You in my helplessness BEFORE I try to sort things out myself – for You have promised to be my help in time of trouble – Thank You for being such a faithful God,

Amen

Help me to live a life that is a sweet-smelling perfume before You. All praise and worship be to You forever and ever, in His name I pray, AMEN.
