Thank You that You are wonderfully good to all who wait for You and seek You, and I pray that those of my brothers and sisters in Christ who, – for whatever reason – are facing times of grief and hardship in their lives - that in Your grace and mercy You would draw very close to each one and gently carry them on Your shoulders, as a Shepherd carries a little lamb that has been torn by the briars.
Be close to all that are grieving today I pray, and flood their souls with hope – knowing that underneath are Your everlasting arms.
Give me a heart that is sensitive to those that are grieving, the wisdom to know when to speak words of comfort or when to keep silent. And Lord I also pray that You would use my life to be a channel of encouragement and hope, through whom the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ will flow into their hearts – to heal and help.
Thank You Lord that You are a God that answers prayers. Amen
Sometimes Lord, I confess that when things get tough I try in my own strength to sort out my own problems - and work out what I ought to do myself, without turning to You first… and inevitably I seem to make the wrong choice…I know that You have a plan for my life – and I also know that living in this world is not easy – but I also know that my sufficiency is in You and that Your strength is made perfect as I rest in You – help me to apply this truth in my life.
Guide me Lord through all the obstacles of life and help me with the many choices I have to make on a daily basis. May I truly learn to look to You as my Guide and Strength, in Jesus name I pray,
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.
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.
Thank You that my promiscuous ways and the abortion I had is already forgiven at the cross and that I am Your child – simply because I trust in Jesus – thank You Lord… thank You for forgiving all my sin and thank You that because I trust in Jesus, there is NO condemnation on me at all. Thank You for sending this healing balm into my heart and thank You that am forgiven – forever…
Lord I pray that if I hear the voice of accusation in my ears or in my heart that You would help me to lift up my voice in praise to You for You have promised that I am forgiven, by the blood of Jesus, and I am not under condemnation.
Lord I want to live a life that is pleasing to You.. Heal me fully I pray and thank You in Jesus name,
