Father I thank You that You are in control of all that is happening in my life, throughout the world and beyond. I pray that while I am here, You will take my life and use me in whatever way You choose, that I may be a faithful witness and bring glory to Your name, in my small corner of this world. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Lord Jesus I am so grateful to You for the church family You have given me and for the love and encouragement that I receive from each member.
I bless and thank You that we are all members of Your body and that we are all there to support each other in times of sorrow and joy as well as those seasons of sickness and health. How wonderful it is to know that we are all one in Christ and have that unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace and love.
We lift up the wider church family and pray that You would meet each one in their own particular time of need. We especially bring before You our brothers and sisters in Christ that have been rejected by their own family members due to their faith in the Lord Jesus and how grateful we are that the arms of love within the body of Christ stretch out to the four corners of the world.
Keep us all we pray in a bond of unity and may Christ be lifted up in the heart of each one – this we ask in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, as I read through the book of Romans I am coming to an understanding that the time for Christ's return is drawing ever closer. In this broken world of sin I realise how easy it is to lose our focus on Christ and be drawn into the many deceptive teachings that are flooding the world and being taught by many church congregations. Keep me alert and awake to the knowledge that the night has almost gone and the day for Christ's return is fast approaching. Help me to be a living sacrifice and a shining light in this darkened world and help me to lay aside any and every worldly activity that discredits Your name, and I pray that I may clothe myself daily in Christ's armour of light, as I see the day of His return approaching. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Father, I thank You for the many blessings that You have graciously bestowed on me, and in such abundance, but Lord my heart aches for my son, who has become so addicted to alcohol causing his life to almost spiral out of control.
Lord I am powerless to do anything to help him and he seems so lost and in so pain and I beg You Father to intervene in his life and show us what we can do to get things under control.. help him to break free of this terrible addiction and get back some semblance of normality due to this into this heart-rending situation.
Lord I know that You have plans for my son and yet he has strayed so far from the path of Your choosing – but Father I pray that in Your grace and mercy You would show us what to do to free him from His addiction to alcohol. Give me Your strength of Your mighty power to support his through this difficult time and help him I pray to break free from his alcoholism – and to You be all the praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am in Christ through faith in his finished work at Calvary. I recognise that I am in a spiritual battle and I can only be victorious as I abide in Christ and He in me. Keep me from trying to live my life in my own strength, but I pray that I may put on the Lord Jesus in spirit and truth - to His praise and glory, AMEN.
