Heavenly Father, thank You that Christ came to earth to become my Saviour. Thank You that He did not come to please Himself but was prepared to say: Thy will be done, even when He faced the cross, knowing that it was only by His death that we can have life. Lord we pray Your mercy on those that have been blinded to the truth by the enemy of our soul and pray that even today, many would come to faith in Christ and discover that in Him is life and light for evermore.. in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
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,
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are a good and faithful God, Who keeps His promises to the children of men. Thank You that Jesus set aside His exalted glory and was born into the Jewish race, as prophesied of old. Thank You that Jesus came as Israel's Servant-King, knowing He would not be received by His own people, but would suffer rejection, humiliation and death at their hands. Thank You that by Christ's life, death and resurrection You have proved to Israel, the Church and the Gentile nations, that You are a God Who is faithful to His promises and that Your holy Word stands fast for ever and ever. Praise Your holy name – AMEN.
Father we offer our grateful thanks and praise for the army of volunteers that quietly yet faithfully offer their services for the wellbeing and support of others.
We ask Your special blessing on each one, knowing that they are the unsung heroes that receive little thanks for their valuable contribution and who are so often taken for granted by those that they freely serve.
Provide for the needs of each one and protect them from those that might intentionally or unwittingly exploit their generous nature - this we ask in Jesus name,
Loving Father, my heart rejoices as I realise the depth of love You have for me. You truly are my glorious God of Hope and I thank You that this is not the chance “hope” of the world but a hope that is securely founded on Your unchangeable Word. Enable me to share this truth to those with whom I come in contact today, to Your praise and glory, in Christ’s name, AMEN.
Dear God – the only source of healing and hope and the one fountain of peace and hope – look down in pity and mercy on Your many children who are facing adversity and afflicted by the miseries that this world system is imposing.
Provide for the needs for all those that are called by Your name, who are facing financial hardships and health problems. Enrich them with Your heavenly hope; nourish them with all Your goodness and bring each of them safely into their promised home ,
In Jesus name I pray,
