Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful example of David whose zeal for your house consumed him, and thank You that the Church, today, is a spiritual Temple in whom dwells the Holy Spirit. I pray that You would instil in my heart a true and permanent passion to honour Your name through my life, and to present my body as a living sacrifice that is holy and acceptable to You. Thank You that in Christ I am a new creation, and I pray that I may be ready and wiling to fellowship in the suffering of Christ during my sojourn on earth so that His name may be exalted and lifted up, for Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Dear God, I know that it is Your will to help those that are afflicted, to support the weak, to provide for the widows and orphans and to help those that are in need.
Use my hands to be of service to those in need, and use my voice to speak words of healing and encouragement to those that are afflicted and in distress. Thank You for hearing my prayer. In Jesus' name,
