Prayer For All People
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are taking out of this world, a people for Yourself. Thank You, that You have promised to be with all the people of God in all the trials and difficulties of their lives.
Soothe any sorrows, and heal the hurt that many are facing at this difficult time. Drive away the fear and worries that cause us to lose precious fellowship with You. Calm every trouble, and let all those that are called by Your name find their true rest in You.
Lord, I pray that those that are Your church, will recognise who they are in Christ Jesus. Help every member of Your body to realise the privileged position we all have in Him. We are a special people in the sight of God, a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, for which we praise Your holy name.
You have called us all out of darkness into Your most marvellous light and have given each one eternal life as Your free gift of grace. Praise Your holy name. In Jesus' name we pray,
Loving Lord, thank You that Jesus came to die for the sins of humanity, and those that trust in Him will not be condemned but have eternal life. Thank You, Lord, that all believers are part of Your body, that You bought us all with a price, and that our citizenship is in heaven with You for evermore.
Lord, I bring every member of Your Body to You in prayer and Lord, I pray that as the day gets increasingly more evil, that You will guard and guide all those that have been purchased with the precious blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Sanctify Your body Lord, sanctify Your Church I pray with the washing of the cleansing water that comes from Your Word. Purify all those that are Your children. Help each one to draw ever closer in these difficult days so that they may be presented to You a holy Church, a sanctified Body, without any stain or wrinkle or any other sort of blemish. May Your church be set apart for You, perfect and blameless in all things.
Draw every one of Your children closer to You in thought and word and deed, to Your praise and Your honour. In Jesus' name I pray,
We praise You for Your provision, and for propelling us into our callings by unveiling our strengths and weaknesses. Help us to listen, learn, and seek You in all we do, for we desire to steward our gifts well.
Every good gift comes from You, Father. Let us not look to the right or to the left but upwards to You and through Your perspective of love. Protect us from idols and remain seated on the throne of our hearts. All good things we do flow from You and Your Love.
Father, in this insane world You have a good plan for us. Help us to remain calm on days that don't line up with our plans. Forgive us, for we fail so often to submit them to You and run great risk of following the ways of the world.
Daily, protect us from distancing ourselves from Your voice. May we be stirred to seek You first and listen to Your wise leading on our lives. We are built to crave You, Father. It's Your presence that drives us, whether we realize it or not. We want more of You. This world is not our permanent home, for we are citizens of heaven.
Remind us, in moments of frailty and desperation or lack of confidence, that You hold us in the palm of Your hand. You are unchanging, and we can overcome the world when we put on the armor of God.
Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.' (Mark 16:15)
May everything we do lead us one step closer to You. Let the witness of our lives lead others to Jesus. Heal us, Father.
This world is hard, but not impossible with You. May we bear witness to many miracles in our lives and sing of the glory each brings to You. Let us honor You with our gifts, loving the people You place in our lives. Help us to submit to You and work diligently for You. Bless our lives with truth and love. Lead us and be with us.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
On earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours
Now and for ever. Amen.
Bless us all, 0 Lord, we pray, for loved ones, here and near, and far away. And everyone for whom we pray. Keep us safe each night and day, the homeless who have no place to stay. Those who are suffering in any way. The dying, those mourning or grieving and all who need God's mercy. Keep us safe, Heavenly Father, when we are at home, or travelling on our way, or when we are vulnerable, or in danger in any way. Most merciful Father, hear us as we pray for the souls in Purgatory, or who may be sent there some day.
Creation sings of Your majesty. Created in Your image, we are a direct reflection of You. Every good thing comes from You. Every note of love and goodness we feel and extend is rooted in Your great love for us.
Whether we know Jesus yet or not, we know love. We all know what it feels like to love and be loved. It is this commonality that supplies the empathy we need to see each other for the people You created us to be. Help us to find the good in every person You place in our lives and on our paths, Father. You are not a God of coincidence.
You watch over us, encourage us, and love us perfectly. You are faithful to hear us and answer our prayers. You are close to the brokenhearted.
Father, we are in awe of how you orchestrate the days of our lives and the individual love You have for each of us and our purposes. We are all unique, every person, and it brings You joy when we recognize each other for the people we are in You. Love leads us to love others for You. The Great Commission, to spread the gospel, starts with love.
I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. (John 8:12)
Father, today we pray for every soul on earth to embrace Jesus Christ. His selflessness is reflected in our lives when we follow Him in faith, allowing others to catch a glimpse of who He is. We pray to be good representatives of love on earth, Father.
Give us the courage to live our faith boldly and consistently. Clean hypocrisy out of our hearts and wipe away prejudice and favoritism. Give us strength and sight. Help us to look at each other through the lens of love.
It is in this way God's alive and active Word will travel to every far corner of earth. All will have a chance to hear the gospel, and we praise You for that! Bless this world and bring the hope of Jesus into every corner of every heart.
Just knowing who You are is not enough. Telling of You is not enough. Help us to live boldly and selflessly, to model love accurately and completely, to anyone and everyone.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
The state of our world convicts us and causes us to cling to You for dear life. The volatile history of mankind's fallen nature is recorded in Scripture. Human history is scarred. The deplorable conditions of our world continue to increase.
Bless and heal the world, Father. Come, Lord Jesus. May Your love comfort every soul as only You can. Bring hope to the hopeless and unity where there is conflict.
Motivate us by love to work together, gathering souls for Christ. Show us our place, Father, and embolden us to obey Your direction. While our world is crumbling, You remain the same loving, defending, and protecting Father. Amidst the rebellion and destruction, You reached down to restore us to the light of Your presence through Jesus.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. (John 14:27)
Light pierces the darkness. We do not have to succumb to the doom-and-gloom reality of our society because we have the power of the living God in us through salvation in Jesus Christ. Your love forges a path for us, illuminating the way and adjusting our perspective to see past destruction to hope.
You are a personal, saving God, creating each of us with a purpose, allowing us to feel Your love and extend it to others. May Your love rule our hearts, because all life flows through it.
Forgive us for allowing the ways of the world to overwhelm us. Help us to be a consistent source of light for all those around us.
You see us, God. You hear us. You are good and You are fair. Prepare our hearts, Lord who goes before us. Repair our wreckage, God of our memories. Bless and empower us with Spirit-fueled confidence, Lord of our hearts. May all we do bring glory and honor to Youas shards of light piercing the darkness.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
Father, thank you. We are A sinning people, but still you do not give up hope. You continued to show us mercy through our many faults. I pray lord that we as a people can develop a person relationship with you. Lord I pray that on day all man shall move away from flawed rituals and learn true connection with you.
One day father the world will move from ideals of superiority to knowledge of the truth. Divine truth. You are not just some benevolent force that created all for no purpose. But that you are our dad, our parent and shepherd and through you all things are possible. And thank you lord for speaking to me however you may choose. I am truly grateful.
