Prayer Until Something Happens - this week's prayer items...
- In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord we declare that we will put on the full armour of God, so that we can take our stand against the devil’s schemes. We declare that we will stand firm, with the belt of truth buckled around our waists, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with our feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, we will take up the shield of faith, with which we can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. We also take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Lord God help us to stand firm in our faith and in our walk with you. We pray for this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
- Illuminate our hearts with your truth, O God. The darkness of the world is filled with temptation that puts a skin over our eyes. Please open our eyes to your truth so that we may ask you to help us focus on your word and approach life with love.
- Heavenly Father we place at your feet all the plans we make as a church and individually for this year. We ask that only those that will bring you hour and glory, only those that are pleasing to you will proceed ahead, with other doors firmly closed. We ask that you draw us close so we remain in Christ the True Vine, and that we can be fruitful in our service of your Kingdom and we ask for your blessing for the work of our hands.
- Almighty God you are Adonai Roi and we are your sheep. We lift up those amongst us who have fallen sick as well as those who are in need. Father, you know who they are and what they need, and you alone are their refuge and strength; by your grace we come to you on their behalf in the assurance of your power to help them overcome. We also give you thanks for all the prayers that you have answered this week.
