Lord, we come to You in Prayer this morning, thanking You for all the blessing You have bestowed upon us, and repenting the sins we have committed. We pray for protection from the evil one, from all temptations, from the sins of upset, and anger. We pray for our daily bread, both spiritual and physical, and we ask and receive in full faith.
Lord, we pray for the safety of the traveler this weekend. Help them to remain sober, and alert. Help them keep their eyes on the road, attentive to their own driving, and all the vehicles around them.
Lord, we pray for direction in our daily lives, and the patience to wait for You to move in our lives, and the patience to wait for You to move us. Lord we give all control of our lives over to You, we humble ourselves before Your throne, and we strive to be Your faithful servant, and pray You will help us do so.
Lord help us abstain from backbiting, gossiping, and ridiculing others, and help us to make people comfortable in our presence, to have the courage to speak of Your undeniable truth, to tell them of the place which awaits those who are faithful to You, Your word, and the commands of Christ, our savior.
Lord, help us to not be self-righteous, but self-examining, humbling ourselves through our own failures to be good and humble servants, before we point out the failure of others. Lord, let us look to You to guide us, and correct the error of our beliefs, before we point out the error of others beliefs.
Lord, we pray for the prisoners, that they will spend their free time studying Your word. Lord, we pray for the prisoners of the evil of this world, revealing a better way to them through us, the church. Lord we pray for those who are held captive under a false doctrine that does not lead to heaven , but to everlasting destruction, we pray You will put it into the heart of everyone who sits in a pew, to study Your word for themselves, so they can recognize the false teacher.
Lord, we pray that all Christians will pray for the revival of the church in America, and Lord we pray that when they are done praying, they will be active in resisting evil, being a soldier in the spiritual battle, resist the evil leaders in the land, and evil laws that have been perpetrated upon us, laws that go against, and above Your laws. Lord, give all of us the heart of lions, the courage to resist, and to encourage others to resist the leader who has become a tyrant. Lord, we pray we will have the courage of our forefathers, who fought for this land, that it would be a land established under Your law, and according to the precepts of Christ, that we will also fight for this land, for the preservation of the principles it was founded upon.
Lord, again, we want to keep all the homeless in our prayers, their plight brought before You daily, and that we will be their source of refuge, and we thank You for all the congregations across America who have begun ministries to see to their needs.
Lord, we pray for the suffering, for their comfort and healing where it is in Your will, and that their suffering will lead them to falling on their knees before You, and also becoming disciples of Christ, and enter the narrow path to eternal life. Lord we thank You for all the workers, with hospice, and other organizations created to help these people, regardless of their affliction.
Again, Lord we bring the orphans, and widows, and the single parents before You, asking for Your care, comfort and companionship be brought to them, through us, Your church.
Lord, a special prayer for Michael today as he struggles with his job situation. We thank You for the man he has become, working so hard to support and care for his family, and to love them and nourish them in both physical and spiritual food. Lord, we pray those who love him, will understand his plight, and support him through this difficult time, taking much of the pressure off him, and Lord, mostly we pray that this difficult time he is experiencing will bring him to a closer relationship with You. And, Lord help all of us realize the physical things of this world, our homes, cars, and clothes are only tools of existence in this world, but can also be stumbling blocks to the next. Help all of us keep our eyes on the true value in life, that which cannot be held in the hands, but only in the hearts.
We pray all this in the name of the savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
