Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for waking me up so early this morning. Thank you for being on my mind. Lord, you are the Alpha & Omega the beginning and the end. Father, you know the future and what it holds. Teach us and guide us to draw closer to you. Let us depend on you, for you are faithful, merciful, and full of grace. Let our faith grow like a corn stalk that stands out in the field. May you shine like a brilliant light through us drawing people to you. Father, give us wisdom and knowledge, as we share you with the world. Father, I lift up our church family. Draw them nearer to you dear, Lord. Give them the desire to share your word with others. Pour us out and fill us with the outpouring of your Holy Spirit. Let it bubble up and overflow to others that you place on our path.
Father, I pray for the sick all over the world. They need your healing hands to reach out and touch them. I ask you also, Lord to protect and save our families. If they are saved help them to endure to the end. If they are not living for you, please massage their stony hearts and lead them back to you. If they have not experienced you please continue to reveal yourself to them. Place someone in their lives to mentor them along the way. Father, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. I ask this all in Jesus’ name amen.
“He wants not only us but everyone saved, you know, everyone to get to know the truth we’ve learned: that there’s one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us—Jesus, who offered himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free. Eventually the news is going to get out. This and this only has been my appointed work: getting this news to those who have never heard of God, and explaining how it works by simple faith and plain truth.”
