Pray For Us

Our Father,

There are many who are hurting this day. There are people who are so full of sorrow that they can’t express it in words, but can only shed tears. Let those be tears of healing. Look upon us, Father:-

Bereaved – look upon the bereaved and give them comfort as they struggle to find some kind of sense of understanding and peace in their loss. We include those who have suffered miscarriage and those who, for whatever reason, have had a termination of pregnancy (You do not condemn, LORD – neither do we).

Lonely – look upon those who are lonely and give them the solace they need.

Physically/Mentally Ill – look upon those who struggle with all kinds of illness, whether acute or chronic. Strengthen them through the difficulties they face on a daily basis.

Addicts – look upon those who are fighting addictions – alcohol, drugs, nicotine, pornography, gambling and other addictions. Give them the help they need to conquer these soul destroying habits.

Dysfunctional Relationships – look upon those who are struggling with problems in their marriage and for the children who suffer the consequences of this. Let them be reconciled.

The Hungry – look upon those who struggle to feed themselves and their families, and those in third world countries who are starving and have no clean water.

Victims of War – look upon those who are caught up in the horrors of war. Be with them in their fear and distress. May peace be brought about.

Victims of Abuse/Crimes of Violence – look upon the abused – men, women, children, elderly, handicapped, culturally different, and animals. May love, understanding and compassion bring about the end of all kinds of abuse.

Perpetrators of Violence – Please Lord, speak to the hearts and souls of anyone who has committed or is planning an act of violence. Help us to pray for their salvation and to forgive them as you do.

Oh Father, there are so many instances where people are hurting. It breaks Your heart to see this. As followers of Jesus, help us to bring comfort and healing through the knowledge and faith of what He accomplished on the Cross.

Help us, LORD, not to look upon people as projects – but to see each one as an individual – to really understand what it is that is hurting them and to convey to them how knowing Jesus and having faith in Him can bless them and be the greatest gift they could ever receive.

Father, may we repent of any sin in ourselves. Help us to take our eyes off our own problems and give us the strength and compassion to be what others need us to be. Especially LORD, help us to play our part in bringing about Your kingdom, restoring Your Creation to that of loving fellowship with others and Yourself.

Hear our prayers, LORD,

In Jesus Name, Amen.

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Revelation 21:4 new international version

A Repost. For those of you who are members of Twitter, please can you give support to the wolves? They are every bit a part of God’s creation and need protection. Thank you!

The Wisconsin Court of Appeals on Friday dismissed a Department of Natural Resources request to stop the wolf hunt that began this week on Monday, and runs through February 28th. A Jefferson County judge ruled last week that the DNR had to establish a wolf hunting and trapping season this month. The DNR appealed that […]

Please Pray For The People And Wildlife Of Texas

Freezing temperatures in Texas, USA have resulted in millions being without heat, food and safe drinking water. The death toll, at the moment, stands at 30 but it is expected to rise. Please pray for Texas as its people undergo tremendous hardship and for the families of the bereaved.

Please also pray for the alligators and turtles, and any other wildlife that are being affected by the freezing temperatures. They are suffering from hypothermia which means that they become unable to swim and float to the surface of the water, which puts them in all kinds of danger.

Our Father,

We lift up the people of Texas before you. Please look upon their suffering and bring them warmth, food and comfort soon. We ask you to take care of the animals whose lives are also being affected by the freeze. Thank you, Lord, for all those who are working towards alleviating the distress in this situation.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
