Lord, we thank You for this day You have blessed us with so that we can again gather with other brothers and sisters of Christ for the purpose of worship. We pray men and women attend congregations all over the world for the same purpose, and that all would worship You in truth and spirit.
Lord, please be with those who cannot attend services due to health, transportation, or for some other reason out of their control. We would pray that members of their local congregation would take worship to them.
Lord, we pray for those who simply “don’t attend”, or feel they don’t need to attend to worship You. Lord, we are happy and blessed that they do believe in You, and do worship You in their own way, but we also pray they will find their way back to the assembly.
Lord, we also know that many of these “assemblies” are not worshiping You in truth and spirit, and pray they will return to proper preaching, and proper worship.
Lord, we continue to raise up to You all the poor, the homeless, the hopeless, the helpless, all children, all widows, and all prisoners, for their protection, faith, and hope.
We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
