Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times when I have not acted in godly love towards my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who may be weaker in the faith than I and who may hold to some practices and biases from which I have been set free. Keep me from developing a critical spirit towards other members of Your Body, and help me not to do anything from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility of heart, count others more significant than myself - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You for the freedom I have in Christ.. that we are not under the restrictions of the Law but under the freedom of grace. I pray that I would make the choices in my life that honour You in all I do. Help me to be mindful of the needs of others, who may be weaker in the faith or do not enjoy the breadth of liberty I have in Him. Give me a sensitive spirit to the needs of others and keep me from any criticism of believers who make different choices in the non-essentials of the Christian faith. Keep me low at the cross and broken before You for His name's sake - in Jesus' name, I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, it is my chief complaint that I do not love and serve You as I ought. Help me to accept that I can only do those things that please You as I decrease, and You increase in my life. Keep me from falling into any legalistic mindset or from abusing the liberty I have in Christ through wrong choices. Please help me shed all hidden pride and all appearances of self-importance so that I may be used by You - so that whatever choices I make in the 'non-essential' of Christian life, I may glorify You in thought, word and deed - in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, I pray that in all things I live to please You – not in my own strength but through the power of Your Holy Spirit. Bring me to the point with I can say without hesitation, Thy will, not mine be done – this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father I thank You that Your perfect plans and purposes can never be frustrated and that You are working quietly in the background in order that Your divine will continues to progress towards its ultimate goal, as year succeeds to year.
I praise You that You have given me life and made me a new creation in Christ and thank You Father, that You have a special purpose for my life too. Thank You that by Your grace You are carrying out Your purposes in the lives of all Your children - that Christ is all and in all and I pray that this may be realized in my life too.
Enable and equip me I pray, to fulfill the plan and purpose that you have for me to do and I ask that You would use each gift and every talent that You have graciously given to me, to Your praise and glory.
Help me to fulfill all that You would have me do in my life and may I be obedient to Your voice as I seek to carry out Your purpose for my life. May I rejoice evermore and pray without ceasing.
May I give thanks in all things and hearken to the voice of Your Holy Spirit and may I hold fast to that which is good and abstain from all forms of evil – knowing that this is Your will for my life.. in Jesus name I pray,
Loving Father, keep me I pray from trying to maintain Church unity at the expense of the truth of the gospel of grace, but also keep me from allowing the beautiful freedom I have by grace through faith in Christ, from criticising others whose consciences lead them in a different direction. Help me therefore to make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification – for I desire to glorify Your name in all I say and do, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, I pray that I may be one that walks in righteousness, before You, at peace with all around me, while rejoicing in You for the privilege of being made a child of the kingdom and a son of the most High, in Jesus name I pray. AMEN.
Loving heavenly Father, You put us into families and set a father as the leader and role model for each family… but Lord there are many families that are being torn apart by a husband and father that has become addicted to alcohol.
Knowing the devastating nature of this disease, I pray that You would prompt each one to turn away from this evil habit to become the responsible husband and father that You desire each one to be.
Lord we know that there are many alcoholic husbands that abuse their wives both physically and emotionally and that many children are also placed in danger, due to abuse from an alcoholic father – and also Lord, that such drinking habits can often leave families with insufficient money to live on.
Protect all those that are vulnerable from all forms of abuse and convict such men of the responsibilities of being loving husbands and dependable fathers – and Lord we pray that they turn from their evil ways to turn to the Lord Jesus – knowing that only in You is true freedom found.
Thank You Father – I commit all families that are in this position into Your safe-keeping,
Loving Lord, I recently had an abortion because I was pregnant and did not want to have another baby – but since going through the abortion Lord, I find that I am beset about by guilt and my heart feels as if it is torn in two.
Lord You have promised to be close to those whose hearts are breaking – I know that what I did was wrong, because You are the Lord of life, but Father You are also the great God of comfort and the Comforter that has promised to be with us always and to comfort us in our distresses.
Lord I have just read the prayer ‘I Had An Abortion,’ and I thank You that You died to pay the price for all my sins, including this abortion. Lord I know that any deep wound takes much time to heal, but I pray Lord that You would start to mend my broken heart today and to soothe my smarting soul.
Give me the comfort that only comes from You to face the future, knowing that in Your sight I am pure and forgiven– and thank You for Your great assurance that there is no sin that is so bad that You are unwilling to forgive.
Thank You in Jesus name,
