Prayer Of Gratitude For the Church Family

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,
 
Amen

“Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.”

Prayer and Praise During Advent

Dear heavenly Father, at this time of the year when the Church remembers the first coming of our Lord and Saviour into the world, we want to lift up our hearts and voices in prayer and praise to You, for sending the Lord Jesus Christ into the world to be our Saviour– so that through his blood we may be brought back into a right relationship with Yourself and receive the gift of eternal life – by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

At this time our thoughts are specially drawn in remembrance to the wonderful time, so long ago, when God in His grace sent the eternal Son of His love into the world to become the propitiation for our sins. How we rejoice when we recall that He set aside His glory and great majesty to take on the form of a man and be born into this world as a tiny baby, in such humble circumstances.

Lord in a world that is become more secular, I pray that the people of God who are called by Your name would take time to reflect with awe and wonder on this amazing truth and to prepare our hearts for the time when Jesus Christ will return again in power and great glory at His second Advent..

Purify our hearts we pray and sanctify our lives so they we may serve you in newness of life not only in this special season of Advent but every day of our lives – until You come to take us to be with You forever, in Jesus name we pray,

Amen
“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.”
(Romans 13:11)

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. 

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.”
(Romans 13:12)

Prayer For Alcoholic Son

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,
 
Amen

“Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.”

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.

“But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.”
