Heavenly Father, thank You for Your precious promises to us and to all men and thank You for Christ, my Kinsman-Redeemer. Thank You for His perfect example of patience. Thank You for His long-suffering as He hung on the cross and slept in the tomb, waiting for the resurrection of His body. Thank You, that having been forgiven of my sins.. I too have no fear of death and hell. Give me patience to endure to the end, to Your praise and glory - this I pray in Jesus name, AMEN

Help me to wait patiently for You to act on my behalf and let me never doubt Your word to heal or Your will to save - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Prayer For A Child Caught Up In Addiction

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,

“Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.”
(Psalm 40:13)
