Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

To God be the Glory!



Lord, I worship You for what I know about You and for what I don’t understand about You. You are too wonderful for words and beyond my comprehension. And yet, You call me to Yourself. I worship You for all You do in my life that I understand, and for all I don’t understand. Everything happens because of You, and through You, and for Your glory. To God be the glory forever. Amen

Billy Graham's Crusade Prayer

Many of us are rejoicing that Billy Graham no longer suffers and has passed on to heaven. To remember him, here is a prayer that he prayed over 60 years ago at Madison Square Garden at the New York Crusade in 1957. It is appropriate for us today.


Our Father and our God, we pray that … we all might be conscious that Thine eye is upon us. If God can see the sparrow fall, if He has the hairs of our head numbered, we know that He watches us, that He loves us, that He cares for us, and we’re told in Thy Word that He cares for us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to the cross to die that we might find forgiveness of our sins. We pray … that Thy Holy Spirit will draw all men unto the Savior, for we ask it in His Name. Amen.

a prayer for when feeling lost



Gracious God,

We praise you that you do not change, that you are righteous, holy, and worthy of worship. We lift your name high, becuase you are the only true God! One who makes us feel sure when all else around us feels unsure.

There are so many times we feel lost, Father. We feel lost in the brokenness of the world, in the midst of our sin, or when people sin agaist us. We can feel lost and run right the things that overwhelm us rather than to you. We can feel stuck in all that is unsure. Help us to find the certainty in who you are, Lord. The surety of your plan for our lives, the certainty of your love. We know we annot change the world to be a certin place, but help us to know that we can be sure of the One who never changes: you.

Guide us and lead us, O God, into your great love.

"...even there your hand shall lead me, 
and your right hand shall hold me." (Pslam 139:10)


Amen

Great and Holy God

Great and holy God
awe and reverence
fear and trembling
do not come easily to us
for we are not
Old Testament Jews
or Moses
or mystics
or sensitive enough.
Forgive us
for slouching into Your presence
with little expectation
and less awe
than we would eagerly give a visiting dignitary.
We need
neither Jehovah nor a buddy-
neither “the Great and Powerful Oz” nor “the man upstairs.”
Help us
to want what we need...
You God
and may the altar of our hearts
tremble with delight
at
Your visitation
Amen

THE BODY OF CHRIST





 Romans 15:30  "I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me."

Thank You, Father, for the fellowship of the Spirit in the body of Christ.  Thank You that when we come to You in prayer we are joined to one another.  How comforting it is to know that, even when I am separated physically from my brothers and sisters in Christ, I am never alone as long as I am in their prayers.  Thank You for praying friends.  I love You.  Amen



Amen

What Then Should We Do?



Titus 2:11-12 (NLT)
     “ 11 For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. 12 And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God,”

Father the salvation you have given to us through your grace, and in Christ alone, clearly instructs us how to live in this evil world. With wisdom to expose the deceitful and deadly consequences of sin. With righteousness to exemplifying a life that God blesses and one that brings peace to others. And with true devotion to you in gratitude for your forgiveness, and the abundant joy we have in our fellowship with you.

Father, may your light so shine through us that it may be said of us: “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” John 1:5 (NLT) This then is what we can do to counter the evil times in which we live.

Father, in the name of him who is the light of the world help us to shine. Amen!
