Let Us Pray!


*Pastor’s Note: This was actually on my heart and mind the other day and I posted it on social media. I thought this would be fitting for today as this was something I believe the Holy Spirit laid on my heart and was meant to share.

1 Thessalonians 5:15b – 18, “Always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all. Rejoice always, PRAY WITHOUT CEASING, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (NKJV) [Bold emphasis mine].

Dearest Father among us; we come to You acknowledging that You truly are above all there is and You are worthy of our praise and exaltation. You honor us by calling us Your children and as Your Word states, You know each one of us by name.

We come to You today knowing full well that no matter what is going on around Your children all over the world, You are still and always have been in control and You are seeing Your plans for mankind unfold. We ask You in light of that to give each one of Your children strength, courage and peace of mind in the assurance that nothing, absolutely nothing takes You by surprise.

Lord we recognize that though the world seems vast and large, in YOU, as we abide in You, the earth is small in comparison and our brothers and sisters are only a heart beat away from us. Father, help us in our weaknesses and our own ideas to do what your Word commands us to do by the inspiration of Your Holy Spirit; “to bear with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” (Ephesians 4:2-3).

We sometimes forget within our own denominations that through the Blood of Jesus, Your Son, we are reconciled to You and not by theology or denominational degree. Continue by Your Holy Spirit to make us one in You. Let us not forget that we worship You in Spirit and truth and thus it is when are spirits are joined in agreement with one another, it is as if we are before You with our requests and supplications as well as our communal adoration. (Matthew 18:20).

For those that do NOT know You, those that are lost, we know that nothing is impossible with You. We lift the lost up to You and pray for their very souls. If it is within our ability and Your direction, allow us to serve You and them with hope, encouragement and Your gift of salvation that is available to all who would accept it.

We thank You in advance for all our needs that You meet abundantly, whether it be health, food, clothing, shelter and even Your peace. We long to continue our journey by Your side as You lead us and guide us all for the sake of Your glory and in the Name of Your Son, our precious Lord and Redeemer, Christ Jesus.

Amen and AMEN!
