A Sunday Morning Prayer

I love you, Father, and you make me strong. You are my mighty rock, my fortress, my protector, the rock where I am safe, my shield, my powerful weapon, and my place of shelter.

I praise you, my Lord! I prayed, and you rescued me from my enemies. I was in terrible trouble when I called out to you,
but from your temple, you heard me and answered my prayer!

Today, your people will gather throughout the world to worship you and honor your Name. Please shower them with your Grace and Mercy. Holy Spirit, help us worship, show us how to praise.

Guide and instruct those who lead us, whether in worship but also in the teaching we receive. Let their words encourage but also challenge us in our faith and devotion to you.

Guide and instruct us as we interact with our brothers and sisters in the faith, but also those who are aliens to your Kingdom; lost in the darkness where we once lived.

Lord, you once taught us that anyone who chose to come to you and to obey you was like someone who dug down deep and built a house on solid rock. When the flood came and the river rushed against the house, it was built so well that it didn’t even shake. Well, this morning we trust that our homes will stand against the destruction and evil that surrounds us. That you would be our hope, our strength, and our delight.

Be glorified through our words and actions today. May they represent you well. In the Name of our Lord and King, we thank you.

Ending Our Fabulous Friday


Father, as we sleep tonight, we invite your Spirit to instruct us even more about you Kingdom and what our part is in reaching the world around us. Encamp your angels around us to watch over our thoughts, dreams, and imaginations. Let nothing disturb our sleep, and instead, allow us to wake refreshed and renewed in spirit, soul, and body.

And Father, we recognize that there are many who must work through the night. Nurses, policemen, postal workers, truck drivers or whoever they are, keep them safe. Allow them to also be renewed in spirit, soul, and body. Empower them with your Spirit to fulfill their tasks successfully and joyfully. Amen!

Rejoice on this Fabulous Friday!

Father, we rejoice today for this Fabulous Friday. We proclaim your goodness and your Glory. We will sing about your glorious name and honor you with our praises. When we pray, you always listen and show your Mercy.

We do love you and understand that each breath we take is a gift you have given us. We thank you for guiding us and comforting us with your peace which goes beyond anything we can imagine and even attempt to describe. You are so awesome, and your love is so overwhelming that we are forced to stand bewildered and humbled.

You are indeed our best friend! You sing over us daily. You rejoice over us with gladness, and frankly, we are amazed. We recognize that in ourselves, we are not worthy of Your affections, but for some reason, you have given your Son as your redeemer and to purchase our salvation.

We commit our day to You and ask that Your Spirit would continue to guide and direct our steps and direct us to impact those around us for good and to encourage those who need a brighter attitude. If any of us are weak and disheartened, then change us! Holy Spirit, we ask that you would open the eyes of our understanding so we can know You, Your will, Your ways.

We thank You for your Word that is changing the way we interact with our family and friends. Penetrate our hearts by the power of Your Holy Spirit. We will yield to Your will and ways. And nothing will dissuade from our service to you and to your people. In fact, we will meet with other brothers and sisters today to worship you. And you are so worth the praises and worship will offer.

Today, order our steps for this is the day that You have made, we will rejoice and be glad in it!

Amen!

Greetings, on This Thoughtful Thursday!

Good morning, my dear Father! Along with all of your people I rejoice and sing praises to this Thoughtful Thursday Morning.

Sing joyful songs to Yahweh!
    Praise the mighty rock
where we are safe.

Come to worship him
with thankful hearts
    and songs of praise.

Our Lord is the greatest God,
    king over all other gods.
He holds the deepest part
    of the earth in his hands,
    and the mountain peaks
    belong to him.
The ocean is the Lord’s
    because he made it,
    and with his own hands
    he formed the dry land (Psalm 95:1-5)

You are our delight, the Wisdom and the Life we desire. We pray that you will be kind and bless us today! That you will be pleased and smile on us as we go through our day. (Psalm 67:1).

Stand up! stand up for Jesus!
Ye soldiers of the cross;
Lift high His royal banner,
It must not suffer loss:
From vict’ry unto vict’ry
His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished
And Christ is Lord indeed.

Stand up for Jesus
Ye soldiers of the cross;
Lift high His royal banner,
It must not, it must not suffer loss.

A Call For Prayer

Father, please comfort those who lost someone they knew and loved. Bring healing to those who were injured and cover them with your Grace. We realize that the memories of such horrific hatred can never be erased, but ask that you will blanket those memories with Mercy.

A Thankful Thursday Prayer

Oh, thank you Father for being my Father. For providing a peace in my life that goes beyond my own understanding. A peace that at times, amazes me because it does not depend on my circumstances, but on my heart fixed on you. Wow!

We do love those you have brought into our lives, but we also know that you love them even more. You brought them into our lives so we can nurture them and increase their faith, but more obviously, you brought them in order the nurture us and to increase our faith. That is amazing.

Help us to stay out of your way and to avoid trying to solve problems that You have not called us to solve! We do so often get in Your way, and we are so sorry.

Help us to show Your compassion and joy in Your way and in Your timing.

Amen!

Prayer For This Wonderful Wednesay

Father, you are my Master and I lovingly join with you. I seek to honor you with every conversation and action today.

Please, Holy Spirit, help me today. Whenever I fail my Savior, quickly alert me. I want a heart that is sensitive to your guidance and instruction. I want a heart that is quick to respond to your voice. Be Glorified through me with every person I meet.

I thank you that no matter how things look in my life, you will continue to work and bring perfection in my life. You will crown my year with your goodness and my path will be overwhelmed with abundance (Psalm 65:11). So I will continue to keep my heart open to your corrections.

I worship You, and praise Your Holy Name, blessed be Your Holy Name. Father, as your Psalmist said, “show me the path where I should go, O LORD; point out the right road for me to walk. Lead me; teach me; for you are the God who gives me salvation.” Today, Lord, continue Your work in my life.

Amen
