Prayer: Jesus! My Saviour, My Friend
EL OLAM, The Everlasting God, we give you thanks, for bringing us this fabulous day to live, worship and serve you. We ask, as the light overpowers the darkness, that new opportunities will grace us, new doors will be opened and only blessings will come our way. Even as trials emerge, oh Lord, give us peace within our storms. We thank You for it all, for You make all things work together for our good.
Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
John 15:13-15 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
Beloved and merciful Father, help our relationship with You to grow daily. Guide and direct us in Your ways and Your wisdom. Fill us as we hunger and thirst after Your righteousness, so we can fall so deeply in love with YOU that nothing else matters. As we pray, Lord, may we learn to decipher Your voice. Let everything around us just fall away as we cling to Your gentle presence. Jesus, You are a genuine friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Your faithfulness has never fallen short hence why we shall not fall short of Your glory.
James 2:23 The Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God.
Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
All the kings and queens we have ever known in history, sent their people out to die for them, but only one King, our Saviour, JESUS, decided to die for us, His people, and by His Grace we are saved and by His stripes we are healed.
Worthy is the Lamb who sits upon the throne! What a friend we have in JESUS, all our sins and griefs YOU bear, what a WONDERFUL privilege to carry everything to YOU, oh GOD, in prayer.
Show us the way, JEHOVAH SHAMMAH, show us who our true friends are, guide us accordingly! Many times, dear Lord, our friends disappoint us but You JEHOVAH SHALOM never lets us down, for Your love never fails and Your mercies endure forever. Remove the pretenders and the people who only contribute to the negativity in our lives. Teach us how to be true friends to others. Give us patience, help us to show love, kindness and generosity. Father we know that if we diligently seek You, You shall reward us therefore we declare that our friendship with You continues to grow daily and our faithfulness never runs dry! In Jesus’ mighty name we pray, Amen!
Proverbs 18:24 A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
