Weekly Prayer 35; 26th August 2012. PDF Print E-mail

               

Dear Heavenly Father hear your children when we call

and answer our prayers if it is in your plans to do so.

We thank you for everything you give us, from the

smallest gift to the biggest miracle, all are given freely

by you to your children.

 

 

During the coming week Lord help us to ask the Holy

Spirit to enter our lives that we may live in your grace.

With you all things are possible and we pray that

worshipping you wholeheartedly will make each day

so fulfilling. We pray that this will come to pass.

 

We thank you for the rain which sometimes falls in

abundance but makes our countryside a greener place.

We thank you for the sun which brings us warmth and

allows our crops to grow and flourish.

We also remember the moon and stars lighting up the

darkness and keeping us safe. These wonders, made by

you and given to all of us to enhance our world.

 

We pray Almighty God that you will accept our humble

prayers and thanks through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

Gracious God our souls cry out to you in prayer.

We need your presence in our lives and its very difficult

to try to do everything ourselves.

Actually we know we cannot do everything and its wrong

for us to try, we pray Lord that by asking you, it will

please you more than our feeble futile attempts.

 

We pray Heavenly Father that you will give us patience;

patience to listen, many people do not have family and they

are burdened with decisions and need to speak to a friend.

Do not let us brush them off with indifference but spend

some time speaking with them.

 

We pray Lord that this week we will be able to spend

more time in prayer with you. Not a specific, on your

knees five minutes, but a real conversation with you our

friend and counsellor, relaxed and comfortable any time,

any place.

 

As the summer passes the children and young people go

back to school and college, we ask you Lord to help them

in all their work and we hope they keep you in their hearts

 

These things we ask in Jesus name     Amen.

Dear God our Heavenly Father,

Please be with us as we start this new week

 

We appreciate that all our earthly bounty

comes from you  and is never ending.

Although we always like the warm sunny weather

we know that into our lives some rain must fall.

 

So Gracious God let us realise that we ourselves

must make that sunshine  Smile Smile and Smile again

 

Let laughter ring out, light up someone’s life.

Spread happiness as Jesus did when he was here on earth.

 

Joy radiated from him and all who knew him were blessed.

 

We who would be called the children of God must make

sure everyone around us is aware of our happiness at

being in God’s world.

 

In Jesus name and for his sake  Amen.

Oh Lord our Heavenly Father bless us we pray.

We thank you God that we have found not only

benefit in prayer, but with your answers we have

been greatly enriched.

 

 

We ask for forgiveness for all our sins but more

importantly we hope we can forgive others who

sin against us.

We pray Father that we will always remember how

forgiving you are and that we must learn to do

likewise.

You give us everything and we thank you, but also

we must give to those who do not have anything.

As Jesus said “when you give to the

poorest of the poor you are giving to me”.

 

 

We pray loving God that during the coming week

we will be able to help out in many ways, with

a word, a smile, a hug, a helping hand, or even by

just being there.

We love you Heavenly Father and we hope that

you are happy with all we do in your name.

We ask that you will accept these things in Jesus name

AMEN

Almighty God our Heavenly Father we come before you

this week in humble adoration.

We ask you to bless all who are involved in the Olympic

Games.

 

May your light shine upon them one and all.

They have trained month after weary month but for many

there is only disappointment. We pray that you will be there

to sustain all those who do not win as we know they have

done their best and we cannot ask for more.

 

We pray Father and we kneel down before you.

we know we can pray anywhere, anytime, sitting, standing,

on the bus, in the car, travelling by train. Sometimes only

falling to our knees will do

When that moment of silence comes to us we forget all else

and we glory in our time with you.

We praise your name and our hearts are filled with joy and

happiness just speaking with  you, our Father.

 

As always our prayers come to you through Jesus our Lord

and saviour and your beloved son. Amen.

We thank you Heavenly Father for all the generosity and

love we receive  from you each day. You give us everything

we need, and more, for this we thank you wholeheartedly

and we hope we can be worthy of you.

 

We pray for all our friends who are ill and ask you Father if

you will give them the strength to cope with whatever is wrong.

Also we need them to know just how much we love them.

 

In praying to you Lord we can bring all our worries to you

as the hymn says

          Ask the saviour to help you, comfort strengthen

         and keep you , he is willing to aid you, he will

         carry you through .

May we gain solace and peace knowing that all is in your hands.

 

Across your vast and diverse world many things are not going

well and we have strife and famine. Those of us who have enough

try to do as much as we can but there are always new demands

made on our scant resources .Help us Father, to be wise in our choice

of giving so that it can be of real value and assistance.

 

We pray Almighty God that you will look down on us with favour

and that we will do as you require us to do. We ask all this through

Jesus Christ your son and our Lord for ever and ever  Amen.

Please dear father we pray you will give us the strength

to see more clearly the way of goodness and help to turn

away from sin, in the coming week let us think more of

your plan for us. A new week , new hope.

 

We know that our prayers are a joy to you and that you long

to hear from us. We want to speak with you so much and

we  know you are eager to hear our grateful thanks.

We delight in our relationship with you.

 

In praying to you we ask that you will be our helper and

redeemer because we often fail you. We fail because we

are weak and foolish ,please Lord help us at all times.

 

Dearest Father we thank you for never forsaking us and

for giving us Jesus whose wonderful legacy is his teaching

and example, we pray we will make a difference in our lives 

this week.

 

We ask all these things through Jesus our saviour    Amen

 

 
Prayer 28; 8th July 2012. PDF Print E-mail

               

In the freshness of a new day we come before you Lord

in prayer. What a chance we have today to begin again, the

slate wiped clean! We pray that as always you, will accept

us as we are, sins and all.

A new day given by Almighty God in which we can proclaim

his name and do as he would have us do.

 

 

During a busy morning we often forget our prayers, but it

takes only a few minutes to allow Jesus into our hearts we

know he stays there for the rest of the day helping and guiding.

 

Sometimes we think that we can manage by ourselves, but

that is not the case we need you Lord Jesus.

Without the presence of the Holy Spirit all our acts and deeds

are worthless.

 

We try to accomplish all sorts of acts of kindness but even acts

of kindness get pushed to the side by our “busyness”.

Busy at work      busy in the home         busy with children

busy for the sake of being busy. We pray Lord that in our modern

lives we remember to put you first even on the busy busy days.

 

We bring these our thoughts and prayers to you through our

Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ  Amen.

We come before you God Almighty in prayer, with humble

hearts and minds. Its so easy to be over confident, but to be

humble now that takes time!

 

We pray that when we look to Jesus and his teachings we can

learn true humility.

When we pray to you Lord we specifically mention our family

and friends first and self last. We must also remember during

the day that thought (  others first self last) must also stay true.

Its not I’ll do this or I’ll do that but what can I do for others.

 

We know that you will keep us right if we just ask.

We pray as often as possible and with your guidance our prayers

will come to fruition. You never let us down Lord.

 

At this time our prayers go out to our brothers and sisters in war

torn Syria. There are many Christians there but they are now

fleeing for their very lives. We pray that a solution will be found

whereby people can live side by side no matter what they believe.

We will try to remember the Christian Syrians in all our prayers

this week because if we don’t remember them  who will?

 

We ask that you will hear our prayers, brought to you through

Jesus Christ your beloved son our saviour. Amen.
