Heavenly Father we lift up the many mothers who are today considering an abortion, and pray that in Your grace You would direct them to make a godly and wise decision.
Lord You know the individual circumstances of each and every woman, and the many arguments they may be using in their decision - of whether of not to abort the babe in their womb.
We pray that You would send godly councillors, wise advisors and caring friends to come alongside them and offer them guidance, hope and comfort, and we ask that in Your grace You would give them reassurance in their hearts, that abortion is not the answer to their problem, and recognise that You are the Author of life and hope.
We pray that You would convict many to discard their thoughts of aborting their baby and trust You to lead and guide in the future choices they make. This we ask in Jesus name,
“But thou art
he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was
upon my mother's breasts.”

Loving Father, I am finding it so hard to even get up out of bed to start the day, knowing that I have to face it alone and without the one I love so dearly – I know that without Your grace and sufficiency I could never get through the day – but I thank You that You have promised to be with me and to provide me with Your strength for the day as well as bright hope for tomorrow.
I can’t imagine tomorrow being anything but a day filled with pain – as I do not have my loved one beside me, but I ask that in Your grace You will give me the strength to get through today, step by step - knowing that You are there to carry me, even when my heart seems to fail from the grief and pain that I am going through.
Thank You that You have promised to carry our pain and thank You that Your grace is sufficient for every eventuality in our lives. Give me the strength and to cope with the loneliness I feel and help me to move forward in my life-plans, knowing that You are with me, to support and strengthen.
Give me hope for tomorrow – for my hope and my trust is in You, Lord. Hold me close I pray and thank You for always being with me and the great comfort that I have in knowing You, as my own dear Saviour and friend.
“Be not far from me; for trouble is
near; for there is
none to help.”

Dear Lord Jesus, our heart is breaking with grief because our precious child has gone down the route of addiction. They have left home and are now living rough in the streets and seem to have become an entirely different personality. Lord we have not seen them now for many months and we are filled with great sadness –but we are trusting You Lord to work a miracle.
Look down Lord Jesus in pity on our dear child and convict them of their wrongdoing and restore a right mind within them. Protect them Lord from the dangers that surround them and bring them home Lord we pray.
Lord there is nothing that we can do, but to trust You - and we DO trust You Lord, to turn our child right round and return them home. Into Your hands we commit this great sadness and pray that the return of our precious prodigal will take place very soon – and we will give You all the praise and glory,
“But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.”
