Prayer for Psalm 116 ►
Thank You Lord for loving me so much that You sent Your only begotten Son to die on my behalf on a cruel cross and take upon Himself my sins. Thank You that He identified with my sinfulness so that I might be identified with His righteousness, by grace through faith in Christ. How grateful I am that while I was still a lost sinner Christ died for me.
How thankful I am Lord that You searched me out and found me and brought me back into Your family, even though I was dead in my sins and at enmity with You. Praise Your holy name, for You are a good God and Your loving-kindness endures forever and I will be eternally grateful that You are my God and I am Your child.
Thank You that You are my helper and healer. Thank You that You are my refuge and strength and thank You that You have surrounded me with people who love me dearly.. and whom I love too. Lord I do not deserve any of Your grace and goodness and yet day by day You pour new and rich mercies into my lap and cover me with Your blessings. Praise God that You are the Rock of my Salvation,

Look down in pity and mercy on all that are suffering with the illness of dementia. Father we know that although our loved ones may not recognise the family and friends who love them dearly – Your Holy Spirit can commune with their human spirit in a unique and Godly way – which must be very precious to Your heart.
Father I ask Your protection on those that are suffering with this debilitating mental disease and pray that You will minister to the emotional and spiritual of those we love, with all forms of this mental illness.
Thank You Father that in the power of Your Holy Spirit, You can touch the heart of those that have lost the memories of those that are their nearest and dearest. Comfort those that feel excluded from a loved one with dementia, in the knowledge that Your grace is sufficient.
“The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.”

Thank You Father for Your day-by-day provision and for supplying all that we need for life and health. Thank You Lord that our table is daily filled with so many good things, just as You have promised and that You faithfully provide for all our bodily necessities.
Forgive us for the times when we have been faithless or forgetful of Your generous provision and yet You have never failed to provide the sustenance that we need for our daily life. Lord.. the blessing that fall from Your hand are good and gracious and we thank You that in Christ we lack no good thing.
Help us never to forget that all good things come from You and keep us from taking Your gracious provision for granted. Instill in each us a heart that is truly grateful and filled our mouths with praise and thanksgiving for our daily food.
We thank You for all You bountiful supply and ask that You would continue to give us our daily bread for our bodily nourishment - and to You we give all the praise and glory, in Jesus name
“What shall I render unto the LORD for
all his benefits toward me?”

Loving Lord I am filled with grief and sadness at the loss of my precious loved one – and yet that pain is tinged with gold, knowing that they trusted you as their Saviour and that they are now in Your presence.
I know that I am going to miss this precious one, who has been my strength and my joy for so long, and thank You for the precious times we had together.
Often Lord I expect my dear one to just be there, or walk through the door - and then remember that they have gone home to be with You. At times this is quite hard and yet I know that I must not grieve as those that have not hope in Jesus – but rejoice knowing that the day is coming when we will be together with You and You will wipe away all tears from our eyes - but at the moment my loss is like an open wound – and I pray that You will heal my brokenness and the loneliness I feel… and draw me every closer into Your arms of love my Lord and my God.
Thank You for all You are to me and may I rest in You in Jesus name,
“Precious in the sight of the LORD is
the death of his saints.”
