“A Prayer For Holding On”

June 2, 2020

Father, the writer of Hebrews encourages us not to throw away our confidence or abandon our faith when difficulties arise. It is during these times of testing that we prove our faith to be genuine if we persevere. We choose not to shrink back and be destroyed, but we choose to be numbered with those who believe and are saved. We thank You for the present rewards that come with diligently serving You and by faith we look forward to the eternal rewards You promise to the faithful. Amen.

A Prayer For A Corrupt Generation”

June 1, 2020

Father, we’re so thankful that You did not leave us without a Comforter after Christ’s ascension to heaven, but You sent the Holy Spirit to give power to believers on the day of Pentecost and for all who surrender their lives to Christ until His return. In response to Peter’s sermon regarding a corrupt generation such as ours where confusion abounds, where postmodernism is embraced and proven historic truth is rejected, where people seek to please themselves rather than You I choose to guard the basic spiritual principles presented in Scripture and exhorted by teachers of the Word. I choose to be faithful in my calling to live for You today and for all of eternity. Amen.

“A Prayer Of Faith’

May 29, 2020

Father, like Abraham, who was not justified by his own works, but by the righteousness of his faith, so it is with those of us who believe, by Christ’s righteousness revealed to us by faith, and received by faith. It is not by works of righteousness that we have done, but according to Your mercy that You saved us, so that, having been justified by Your grace, we might become heirs with the hope of eternal life while we remain steadfast and faithful. Amen.

“A Prayer For Heroes”

May 28, 2020

Father, we thank You for those who are working hard during the pandemic, especially our emergency workers, those in the healthcare field, and those workers who are willing to get down on their hands and knees to scrub away the messy germs that cause illness in the first place. We thank You, Father, for Jesus who is the Hero of heroes in that He gave His all that we might receive Your all; forgiveness for our sins and eternal life in Heaven. We thank You for Your undeserved love and unending mercy. Amen.

“A Prayer For Listening”

May 27, 2020

Father, it’s interesting that we often plead for Your attention and certainly expect You to listen to our prayers and You assure us through Your word that You hear us when we call on You. But for true fellowship to exist we too must listen to Your voice through Scripture, through fellow believers, through Your many works of creation, and through Your still small voice that beckons our attention. You have so much to tell us that will often encourage us, sometimes reprove us, but always spur us on to good works and needed spiritual perspective as we journey here below. Help us to choose to listen, to heed, and to be steadfast in our fellowship with You. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

“A Prayer For Being Remembered”

May 26, 2020

Father, we are shaped and molded by Your Holy Word, through the Spirit living within us, and by the people You place in our earthly journey who take us under their spiritual wings as they model Christ and impart truth in our lives. Their example, their teaching, their prayers, and their love for us further shape and mold us to be more like You. We thank You for these precious people of the faith. Just as they have been faithful to pray for us in our time of need, we lift them up to You and ask You to meet their every need. Encourage them in the faith so that they keep their eyes on the goal of the heavenly prize. We also pray for all whom we have impacted and are now impacting. May they in turn impact others. Some glad day we will all be united in heaven where we will forever worship You, King of kings and Lord of lords. Amen.

“A Prayer For Remembering”

May 25, 2020

Father, we express thanks to you and pray for families of the fallen men and women who gave their all in fighting for our freedoms during our sojourn here on earth. We thank You above all for Jesus who made the supreme sacrifice that we might enjoy our freedom from sin and our arch enemy, Satan, for all eternity. We thank you for the days of old, for generations long past, and the great works accomplished in their lifetime. Your greatness is further demonstrated through ordinary people just like us in our lifetime. History in the past and history in the making is subordinate to Your sovereign work in the lives of Your people. Amen.

“A Prayer For Passing On Our Faith”

May 22, 2020

Father, lay upon our hearts the unquenchable desire to pass on the spark of faith to others the important truths we received from reliable followers of Christ and from our own study of Your Holy Word. Help us not to relegate our duties to others, but take up our responsibility as we link together with other believers all over the globe transmitting Your timeless, life-changing truths to those who have ears to hear. Amen.

“A Prayer For Belief”

May 21, 2020

Father, Your Word declares that the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to those who are being saved it is the power of God. Through my words and actions I want to express to a disbelieving world that I do believe! I am not ashamed of the Gospel, even if it cost me my life on this side of heaven, because it is the power of God to everyone who believes. Help me to be merciful to those who doubt and praying for them to be snatched from the fire as You save them through Your atoning blood. In the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior, we pray. Amen.

“A Prayer For Discernment”

May 20, 2020

Father of all wisdom, we who are children of the light, do not live as those in darkness. Instead You have shown us right from wrong, truth from error, and You have given us discernment to test the spirits to see that which is from You and that which is from the evil one. The foundations are shaking as we are flooded with a tidal wave of twists and spins that seeks to confuse or demean the believer. Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but rather the authorities from this world. Keep our souls untainted by the spiritual forces of evil like the men of Issachar did. Help us to walk boldly in the conviction power of the Holy Spirit today, we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
