Thank You that You are taking out of this world a people for Yourself and thank You that You have promised to be with all the people of God in all the trials and difficulties of their lives.
Soothe any sorrows and heal the hurt that many are facing at this difficult time. Drive away the fear and worries that cause us to lose precious fellowship with You our Father in haven and with You, Lord Jesus. Calm every trouble and let all those that are called by Your name find their true rest in You.
Lord I pray that those that are Your church will recognise who they are in Christ Jesus. Help every member of Your body to realise the privileged position we all have in Him – that we are a special people in the sight of God – a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people – for which we praise Your holy name.
Father we pray that You would show forth the praises of the Lord Jesus Christ in the lives of all who are called by Your name - for You have called us all out of darkness into His most marvellous light and have given each one eternal life - as Your free gift of grace – Praise Your holy name… in Jesus name we pray,
