Our Father in heaven, our creator, the God above all gods, we come to You this morning thanking You for bringing us safely through the night. Lord, not only the night of the past few hours, but the night of human existence. Lord, compared to what we can expect as Your faithful servants, human life is a pitch black night, full of evil beings scheming to destroy us, to make us fall, setting pit falls in our way. But, try as they might we have You. We have Your promise. We have Your providence. We have Your purpose which can never fail.
Lord, this morning we pray for the lost soul. That soul that flounders behind that dark curtain of worldly lust, pride, hate, and injustice. Lord, we pray for their eyes to be opened, to realize the things of this world are only temporary and the day is coming it will mean nothing to them, the only thing that will matter is their relationship with You.
Lord, we pray for the misguided souls that believe in false gods, that lead them to murder, beheading innocent children, and moving along in a killing rampage this world has never seen before, or has been recorded in history. Lord, we pray You will either change their hearts, or change their ability to do this great evil.
Lord we pray for their victims, be with those Lord who have lost a loved one to this horrible evil overtaking much of the world, we pray You will use this to draw these people to a Christian life, realizing this muslim life, and faith is a false belief in a false God.
Lord, as we do every morning, we lift up to You the homeless, the widow, the orphan, the helpless, and the homeless. In addition to that the prisoners of every type of prison, from prisons with bars to the prisons made of needles. Lord, teach these people Your precepts, so they can have the hope that is available only through You. Provide for them Lord, through Your church here on earth, and please Lord do not let any of us fail in the work You have for us, whether it is writing a morning prayer for whoever would like to join in, or feeding homeless people food, and truth. Please be with all of us, giving us strength to perform, and a passion to continue.
We pray all this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
