‘I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen You with power through His spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your heart through faith.’ Ephesians 3 16
Heavenly Father, we pray that we will remember You at all times, not just in moments of adversity. As we enjoy the summer months and the change in routine, may You be the constant in our lives, keep us grounded in You, thankful for the beauty around us, for Your unfailing love, for the longer days, the sunshine.
We pray, Lord, that in times of adversity we will find hope in You. Not only us as individuals, Lord, but we pray for our country in these days of gloomy news and media despondency. Give hope to those in authority, let them be aware of Your power and Your love, freely given to all who will accept it. We lift our leaders up to you, open their eyes, give them a thirst for a better way, not self seeking but wanting the best for all men. We believe, Lord, that anyone can answer your call, anyone can change.
‘Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.’ Colossians 4:6
Please, Lord, let Your church be effective wherever we have a voice. May we declare Your Gospel boldly whilst we can. We pray for all with whom we come into contact, let us not case any to stumble. Give us your wisdom in every situation.
We pray for all who are sick, anxious, scared, troubled, may Your peace come into their lives, that they may see light at the end of the tunnel and hope for the future. Be with them as they go through dark days.
‘We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers.’ (1 Thess. 1:2)
