Father, as we come to You this morning, we praise Your name above all names, and we worship You in truth and spirit as we go through the day. Lord, we pray worshiping You is at the center of our hearts, and souls, continuing without interruption, and visible to all others through our words, and actions.
Lord, we life up the nation of Israel to You this morning, a nation under attack and hated from the beginning. Hated because they represent You the true God, the only God. We pray for their divine protection from the sons of Ismael, and all others who would cause them harm.
We pray, as Your church to be known as Your true representatives here on earth, and pray for our divine protection as well, as Christians are persecuted throughout the world, simply because they believe, and trust in You. We accept that divine protection through Your providence, and with full faith in Your promise.
Lord, we pray all Christians will follow Your word in Ephesians to proclaim Your word boldly, and that we pray at all times in the spirit as we open our mouths boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel.
As in all mornings Lord, we pray for forgiveness of our sins, we repent those sins, we pray for forgiveness for our trespasses. And, Lord, help us to always have a forgiving heart, help us to forgive all those who trespass against us, whether requested or not, and Lord, let us always remember, any attack against us and our faith, is not really against us, but against You, and Your name, and let us stand boldly against any attack against Your name.
Lord, we pray for our daily provisions, and thank You for them, and receive them in Your name, with full faith.
Lord, we pray for those less fortunate than we, the homeless, the beggar, the widow, the orphan, the suffering, the hopeless, and the prisoner. Lord, we pray You will bring all these people to a saving knowledge, and relief from their burdens, through Your representative on earth, Your Church.
Lord we bring to You this morning three special requests for peace and healing, first Jim for his peace, as he suffers the loss of his wife, secondly Booker, as he suffers from illness, and thirdly a young lady in Kansas by the name of Geneva as battles her second bout with cancer.
Lord, we pray for this lost and dying world, that You will send great world leaders to rule this world under Your guidelines, and the gospel will be heard, accepted, and embraced in every corner of the world.
WE pray all of this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
