 Subject: “Satan Has Blinded the World”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, we have many memories of trying to convince the fallen world of the absolute beauty of the glorious gospel of Christ. We tried desperately to explain how their lives would completely change bringing forth great joy and a peace that truly defies understanding. We tried to convince them that their transformation in Christ would allow them to see and experience a bountiful life free from the many emotional and psychological problems plaguing fallen humanity. Yet, we finally realized that Satan, the god of this world had blinded them, causing them to actually hate the gospel of Christ and even those who freely share it. As darkness covers our land where many more are completely blinded to your glorious gospel as they do the most horrific things like killing people in churches and embracing every manner of wickedness as they march in the streets for abortion rights, we pray that all of your beloved children will not fight back as the world. We pray that they will let the light of your glorious gospel shine that much brighter. Please, Lord, strengthen your beloved children during these dark days. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” (II Corinthians 4:4).

PRAYERS FOR THE LAST WEEK,  IN CASE YOU MISSED ONE

 Subject: “True Peace in a Divided World”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Although the world can bring forth a cessation of hostilities, it has no power to bring forth true peace in the hearts and minds of the people. Although the world can promise peace from the ravages of anxiety, depression, and hundreds of other psychological problems by administering their counsel and drugs, it cannot bring true peace to the hearts and minds of the people. Although all the other world religions can promise peace with their god through rigorous discipline and obedience to their laws, it cannot bring true peace to the hearts and minds of the people. We thank you Lord that you have given your beloved children true inner peace from every psychological problem, from the constant temptations from the old sin nature, and most importantly a lasting peace with our loving Father in Heaven. Through every suffering and hostile force brought against us, we have an inner peace that the world doesn’t understand. Thank you for your beautiful peace that gives us the assurance that you will always work things out for our best, delivering us from anxiety and fear. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

 Subject: “Schoolhouse of Prayer”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for being our true teacher by giving us life-changing lessons to make us who we are today. We have learned what other great scholars have said about you and your wonderful teachings, over the course of many years. We have even looked at the original languages of the Bible and studied hard to understand its true meaning. We have also spent many years practicing our public speaking and the fine art of listening for becoming an effective counselor. However, all these, pale in comparison to sitting in the schoolroom of the indwelling Spirit allowing You to teach us every moment of every day. Therein, is our true boldness to speak clearly and effectively to others in your Name. We thank you, Lord, that this teaching through the indwelling Spirit is available to all your beloved children if they would only take time to listen, to really listen. We pray that your children would take the time from their busy schedules to spend the daily hours necessary in prayer and meditation to learn how to listen to you in the schoolhouse of prayer. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13).

 Subject: “God Holds Everything Together”

Good morning Heavenly Father. As we are reminded of the distant thunder growing louder and louder and the violent storm appear to pop up out of nowhere, we are reminded once again how small we are in a vast and very powerful universe. As the fallen world shakes their hand at you believing that they have great power, they are blind to the fact that you hold everything together. All their cosmological theories about the universe’s creation and its eventual demise are foolishness when they remove you as the constant who holds everything together from the beginning until you decide to bring it to an end; especially when they also deny that you created everything that exists both visible and invisible. We, as your beloved children, humble ourselves beneath your mighty hand trusting in you alone to protect us from all that is coming upon the world, keeping us from the many dangers of a violent universe. We pray that you will strengthen the faith of your children to trust in you alone during these dark and dangerous days. Remind us to glorify you in the midst of the storm. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:16-17).

Subject: “Pressing on to Perfection”

Good morning Heavenly Father. We have noticed as of late, Oh Lord, that there have been some very vicious attacks against the Christian faith. Not only do they personally attack you, but they also attack what they see as just simply blind faith willing to follow anyone who supports our beliefs. Although this could be the new culture war that will lead us into persecution, we pray that we as your beloved children will prove the world wrong that our faith is not blind. It’s not blind because we have a foreseeable goal that we constantly aim for as we continually put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ. We are constantly in the school of “hard knocks” learning as we go by identifying those things that stunt our spiritual growth and opening our eyes to anyone or anything that would pull us off course. We pray that you will help us to press on to make perfection our goal, if for no other reason than, you made us your own. Thank you, for choosing us since the foundations of the world. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own” (Philippians 3:12).

 Subject: “Worship in the Spirit”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, teach us how to worship you, for we know it’s much more than just singing a few songs, fellowshipping with other believers, and listening to the educated opinions of those who claim to know the Bible. Teach us how to truly worship you today and every day. Teach us how to make that connection to you in the Spirit where we humble ourselves before your Majesty by totally submitting our wills to yours; where we allow you to control our every thought and action. Indeed, to truly worship you, oh Lord, we must do it in the Spirit and in truth. We pray that all your beloved children will learn how to test the spirits for we know that there are many evil spirits that have entered the world spreading their many lies. Their lies are manifested by overlooking the many sacred texts concerning our transformation in Christ or by adding their ever-increasing psychobabble to it, thus barring the way of many, not allowing them to truly worship you. Lead us to worship you in the Spirit and in truth. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24).

 Subject: “Speak Forth in Faith”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for giving us faith to speak forth the mysteries that you have so gloriously planted in our hearts. We simply cannot remain quiet. Your words are so strong and powerful in us for they have changed our lives; they have made us into the people that we have become. We simply cannot remain quiet. We fully understand that from a human viewpoint that our words may seem to be radical and for the lost they may not even make any sense, but we are still moved to speak forth in faith proclaiming boldly the words that you have given us, words of warning and words of hope. By faith, we proclaim that you have given your children everything they need for life and godliness. By faith, we proclaim that there is no other Name under heaven in which to be saved. We pray for all your true children to bolster their faith by speaking forth all the words that you have given them. Let them not fear the powers of darkness in an evil age but to boldly speak in faith. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;” (II Corinthians 4:13).

 Subject: “Abide in Christ”

Good morning Heavenly Father. We proclaim to the world today that without you, we can do nothing. Everything we attempt to do without you is not only difficult but it’s worthless as hay and stubble. It has no power to bring about change or to bring refreshing water to the dried-out souls of humanity, always going from bad to worse. It has no power to bring forth the spark of life to the dead corpses taken captive by the powers of darkness. On the other hand, we rejoice greatly in seeing your great work manifested in us as we abide in you, allowing you to do your work through us. Every word spoken, every word sung, or written must come from you through us or it has no power. We pray that all of your children will learn this and wait patiently upon your words to be manifested through us. We pray that they will not follow the world in their useless bashing of one another and their worthless psychobabble but let them only speak your truth. Let us always abide in you so that we can bear much fruit. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me” (John 15:4).
