Gracious heavenly we come to You this morning with a special prayer for those suffering to the point of death. We specifically lift up to You Roger Wolfenbarger who is about to be received into Your arms, and we pray for his soul, and his easy passing. Lord, we also raise up to You our grandson Darren Michael who has a heart for Your truth. Lord, we pray You will capture his young heart and keep it for eternity.
Lord, we pray for forgiveness of all the sins we have committed; we repent those sins, and seek You in all areas of our lives. Lord, allow us to be blinded to all the worldly charms, ignoring their glitter, and only seeking You in our lives, with a passion of a drowning man has for a breath of air. Lord, change our hearts, change our minds, and change our direction. Allow us to see through this dark curtain, so we can see Your glory, seeing it through the book You have provided for us.
Lord, as the Christians, and the children of the world are being brutally persecuted, we pray for a Devine protection against this evil that has overwhelmed the world. Lord, give the Christian, the preacher, the politician the ability to see the evil of these people, and give them the courage to stand against them.
Lord, be with the homeless, the hopeless, the helpless, giving them strength, and happiness in the hope for a better, and eternal life in Heaven.
Lord, we pray all this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
