Prayer

Dear Lord Heavenly Father,

Thank You for You are our good and faithful Heavenly Father. You give us the food we need in due season. You know what’s best for us and You care even in the tiniest details of our lives. You orchestrate dates and times and seasons.  And in all the intricacies of life, in joys and in pain, in blissfulness, in stillness, in the shadow, in the pain, You give us peace when we go to you in prayer. Lord God, may you be our constant in the change, the anchor in the waves, and our salvation in tribulation. May Your presence be evident in our lives; may we remember to cry to You for help in times of trouble.

May we live a life of power, of love, and of a sound mind because we know that You, O Lord, are sovereign and in control and that You love us. May we be like Job who wrestled with You in prayer that we may find You as we seek You with all our hearts.

Lord God, we pray that Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. May we love and forgive others just like You. May we not run after the world, but may we please You in all that we do. May we do the good works that You have prepared for us to do with gladness and joy. May we draw courage and strength from You as we follow Your ways and as we become the Salt and Light of the world.

Lord God, our Emmanuel, just as we know that You are with us, may more people come to know You that they may also experience the peace that we have in You. As You have said in John 14:27, “27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

Thank you Lord for the assurance that You answer our prayers as You have said in Your Word,

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye

shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh

findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

May we be joyful always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances because this is Your will in Christ Jesus.

In Jesus’ Most Precious Name,

We pray, Amen
