Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/17/2020

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, the world may be falling apart around us with evil people saying things beyond the pale, yet we desire to always walk in holiness before you. You have taught us that it’s only possible if we truly listen to what you say. We pray, Oh Lord, that we have ears to hear what you say to us through your magnificent Word, the Bible always made alive by the indwelling Spirit. Without the indwelling Spirit, we cannot hear what you say, so we pray that we always humble ourselves by ceasing all of our wandering thoughts and giving our undivided attention to what you want to say. If we only listen to your still small, yet powerful voice, through the indwelling Spirit, then we can truly call you Lord, Lord. It’s your voice that’s always calling us away from every form of evil either in images, words, or so-called music. Thank you, Lord, that Your voice always comes in loud and clear when someone attempts to set an evil image before our eyes or to express an evil thought through corrupt communication. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46)

PRAYERS FOR THE LAST WEEK,  IN CASE YOU MISSED ONE

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/16/2020

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, your Spirit that dwells in every believer must be so grieved with all the corrupt communication in the world today. Individually, we can feel the indwelling Spirit crying forth with enormous tears of grief that deeply saddens our hearts. We have noticed that this corrupt communication among most of humanity has progressed well beyond vulgarity and filthiness. We have observed that this corrupt communication is filled with damaging lies and half-truths intended to divide and destroy their fellow man. This corrupt communication has filled the airwaves, new media, and social media intoxicating the public. Lies laced with half-truths are leading the entire world into greater divisions and open hostility. This has caused total chaos in the streets of many of our major cities in the world causing riots, deaths, and destruction. We pray that all of your children will choose to stop being a conduit for spreading this corrupt communication that is dividing and destroying humanity that’s far worse than any supposed thermo-nuclear war. Lead us, Oh Lord, to shut our ears to the lies and half-truths of our age. We humbly pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers” (Ephesians 4:29).

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh, how precious are the days of deliverance. How precious are the days of deliverance, when you have delivered us from the grips of death, caused by a major car accident, a deathly disease, or some other calamity.  How precious are the days of deliverance when you have delivered us from the agony of defeat or the rejection of forced unemployment. How precious are the days of deliverance when you have delivered us from the grips of our dependence on psychological drugs, alcohol, or the distasteful addiction to cigarettes. How precious are the days of deliverance from the power of sin, the emotional pain of guilt and the agonizing pit of un-forgiveness. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for creating a brand-new day, where we are no longer pulled down by our past. Help your beloved children to truly accept your loving forgiveness, to let go of their past, believe in their new life in Christ, and walk joyously into the new day with their heads lifted high.  Thank you, Lord, for creating a brand-new day where we will rejoice and be glad in it! We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalms 118:24).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/14/2020

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray, Oh Lord, that especially your beloved children will not dismiss the power of evil that’s growing stronger every day. We believe this is becoming more self-evident among those who are spiritually mature, in those who spend more time in silence and solitude, and in those who spend many hours every day in prayer and meditation. It’s as though a huge wave of evil is enveloping the world and especially this country. We pray that you will give us strength and wisdom on how to guard our every thought. Let us always keep the Cross before us by dying daily to self, casting out every impure and self-righteous thought immediately. Help your children to see and understand that it’s not all about casting out evil in physical places and other people but it’s more about casting out what’s evil in our own minds. We pray that they will also see how essential it is for us not to flirt with evil in our movies, music, and books. Help us to be very discerning on what we watch, listen to, or read. We pray this in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/13/2020

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, that you always tend to give us the strength and energy to complete our task of serving others. Although the rewards of helping others are beyond measure, we have discovered that once the task is complete then we become keenly aware of our own physical wellbeing. We find ourselves also in need of much prayer that our physical health would be as good as our soul or spiritual wellbeing. We admit dear Lord, although we continue to have the deep desire to keep loving and serving others, our physical health tends to slow us down not allowing us to give as much as we truly desire. We pray for all of your precious children that things might go well for them by keeping them in perfect health so that nothing will hinder their loving service to others. We pray that all may go well for them and that they may be in good health, as it goes well with their soul or spirit. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul” (ESV, III John 1:2).

Prayers by Daniel W. Blair 1/12/2020

Good morning Heavenly Father. As we enter our prayer closet today we are reminded that our ministry to others goes well beyond just teaching and proclaiming the truth to living out the truth before others. It’s even more important as we fast approach the end of days and as Satan tightness his grip on fallen humanity. He has convinced them that they can end all wars, anger, hate, and open hostility simply by the power of negotiation and tolerance, which is a lie of the devil to keep them in bondage. Thank you, Lord, that you have shown us a different way by proclaiming the truth to others but also by living it out to open their eyes, to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God. We pray that you will impress upon all your beloved children to live out the truth and walk as we have been truly forgiven without ever looking back with guilt, remorse, or shame. We pray that they will lift their heads high and walk in the light of your love for all to see. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me” (Acts 26:18).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/11/2020

Good morning Heavenly Father. Why are we as Christians always being misunderstood by the world? Why do they often think, what we say is wonky? Of course, we believe that you have given us the answer to these two unsettling questions in the Bible. The world is still in darkness! Even their most educated professors of higher learning and their greatest scientific minds are still seeing things through a darkly colored glass because they are still in darkness and have not the true light of the world. Unfortunately, the world discovers it easy to find fault with our faith because many of your children refuse to walk in the light that you have given to them. We pray that you will help all of your beloved children to walk in the light at all times by not integrating the world’s foolishness into their amazing faith. We fear that the church is becoming more like the world to win some but have only kept their disciples in darkness by not teaching them how to truly follow You by letting go of their worldly knowledge and embracing the Light. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/10/2020

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for bringing us through the many and various trials in our lives. At the time we may have felt that they were strange, primarily because we appeared to be suffering more than others, especially the pagans amongst us. Although at the time we did not always understand, we continued to trust in you, our Lord, to bring us through the fiery trial. Every time you brought us through a very painful trial our trust in you grew even stronger than before. Praise God! Eventually, we began to understand that these fiery trials were intended to knock off the barnacles of the old sin nature, to purge us of those favorite little sins, and to ultimately change our way of thinking. Hallelujah! Although we still to this very day seriously dislike any kind of trial, we have finally learned that they can be used for our eternal benefit and for that, we will greatly rejoice. We will rejoice, Oh Lord, that we are partakers with Your sufferings and that we will rejoice even more at Your coming in Glory. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you” (I Peter 4:12).
