Heavenly Father, we Praise You and we thank You for this day. We thank You for being able to see and hear this morning. We are blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God.
You have done so much for us and You keep on blessing us. Most of all, we thank You for our sweet Savior Lord Jesus, our Rock and Redeemer.
We were washed clean of our sin and brought to eternal life in Your kingdom through the death, burial and resurrection, of Your son, Jesus.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Isaiah 53:5 But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.
Lord Jesus Christ, we thank You greatly for Your great sacrifice and enduring all pain and shame for our iniquities.
We thank You for Your love and grace offered upon the cross. We thank You for bringing us into reconciliation with the Father and in everlasting grace and hope of salvation.
Isaiah 41:13 For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear, I will help you.
Start the day with forgiveness
Lord, please forgive us this day for everything we have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to You. Please keep us safe from all danger and harm.
We pray to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let us make the best of each and every day to clear our mind so that we can hear from You. Please broaden our mind that we can accept all things.
Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Let us not whine and whimper over things we have no control over. Let us continue to see sin through God’s eyes and acknowledge it as evil.
And when we sin, let us repent, and confess with our mouth our wrongdoing, and receive the forgiveness of God. Help us Lord to not judge others, or to speak an ill word.
Praying for blessings
Continue to bless us that we may be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak and rejected. Keep us uplifted that we may have words of encouragement for others.
Bless those who are lost and can’t find their way. Comfort those who are misjudged and misunderstood. Heal the hurting and abused. Help us be a light of hope in their darkness.
Matthew 14:23 After He had dismissed them, He went up on a mountainside by Himself to pray. When evening came, He was there alone.
Meditation: Seeking quiet time
Lord Jesus we pray when this world closes in on us, let us remember Your example – to slip away and find a quiet place to pray.
We know it’s the best response when we’re pushed beyond our limits. We know that when we can’t pray, You listen to our heart. Continue to use us to do Your will, Lord and walk Your path.
Philippians 2 : 10-11 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
We pray for those who don’t know You intimately. We pray for those who don’t believe.
May we be a living witness of Your love and joy and peace. And in our example may Your blessed name be glorified together with the Father in heaven.
Psalm 118 : 14 – 16
The LORD is my strength and my song, He has become my salvation.
Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The LORD’s right hand has done mighty things!
The LORD’s right hand is lifted high; the LORD’s right hand has done mighty things!”
Praying for peace in the home
We believe that You Lord change people and change things. We pray for all our family members, relatives, our friends and our brothers and sisters in Your name.
Lord, bless them with peace, love, and joy in their homes. Bring them out of debt and supply all their needs. Heal the broken-hearted and the physically ill of their illnesses.
Bless those struggling for jobs and a livelihood. We pray for better relationships between people and a loving atmosphere in all instances.
Lord, let every eye that reads this know that there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than our God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.
We pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly.
Thank You Lord that You are not leaving us on our own, You are always with us, even to the end of the world…
Thank You that someday You will come again and we await Your return Lord Jesus Christ in hope of Your grace and salvation, AMEN!
