Dear Heavenly Father, be glorified and exalted in us, Your children. You are worthy to be exalted for Your majesty is from everlasting to everlasting and we cannot praise You enough! Let us be a mirror, a reflection of Your glory so that the world may see only You! Let Your light shine in brilliance through us, Your servants, Your children.
Father, let the world see and experience Your Kingdom through us. Allow us to show the world the Kingdom of Heaven as it is meant to be and as it WILL be. Lord, we truly pray that we will be invisible and that You will be magnified through our lives. Let us truly decrease as You alone increase.
O Lord, if we have transgressed against our Brothers or Sisters, forgive us we plead. Forgive us for the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ. If we have transgressed or sinned against our neighbors, we ask the same. Lord help us to forgive our Brothers and Sisters if they have transgressed against us and don’t hold those things against them that we might be free in You. Forgive our neighbors and even our enemies from their transgressions and sins against us that we might remain free in You.
Lord, we thank You exceedingly and in fact we can’t thank You enough for the many blessings, both natural and spiritual that You give to us so graciously. Help us to be ever conscious of the fact that You ARE our source of need and comfort. We are blessed with the assurance that You are the source of that comfort and peace and our strength comes from the joy that You have in each of us individually. Help us daily to not misplace that assurance.
O Lord, we truly look to You each and every day, every minute of those days to continue to be our Rock and our Shield in the face of what is going on in the world. Again, help us to portray Your light in a world that is quickly embracing the darkness. Let Your light so shine through us and help us to continue to fervently and effectually pray for the lost that they might escape an eternity of darkness. Let Your unfailing love work through us for the sake of the lost, those that are our neighbors around us and those of our loved ones trying to live a life without you, for the sake of Your Son, our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
Amen and AMEN!
