Prayer of the Week

posted by Scot McKnight

Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we to pray, and to give more than we either desire or deserve: Pour upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things for which we are not worthy to ask, except through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Heavenly Father, I humbly come to you asking for prayer in Jesus’s name, my Lord & Savior. Thank you God for this day and the many blessings to come. I love you and thank you for everything, every person that is in my life. My prayer is for those that are suffering physically, mentally, financially and emotionally due to the recession. Please Father, touch, heal and soothe away the pains that have afflicted so many. Please touch our war torn nations. Please continue to bless our President to make the right decisions and anoint him to do YOUR will, to look to the Hills where his help will come from. I pray for me, the depression that has tried to cloud my life and so many others. I pray for those in my family and others to release their addictions to drugs, alcohol and other things I may not be aware of. Please Father send mothers, fathers and children home who have strayed away to the families that love and miss them so much. Touch all by your healing hands. I love YOU and give you the praise, glory and honor that you so righteously deserve. AMEN!

Please pray for attorneys, judges, jailers and all those who serve in the judicial system. They are scrutinized everyday by the clients, the law and the public and they hold the responsibility of so many. May God Bless all who serve in the public sector including Police, Firemen, first responders, administrators and all who often go unappreciated. To these we bring to your throne for protection and guidance, precious Lord.

Father God,
I pray in the mighty name of Jesus that you would teach us how to seek your face and not your hand. I pray that you would help us to walk in love for you and for your creation/mankind everyday. I ask that you forgive us for seeking to get more and more stuff and not more and more of you. Help us to be a blessing and not seeking to be blessed. I pray that you would ignite in us a fire for your word, your will, and your purpose for our lives daily. Father and if we are luke warm for the things that concern you forgive us this day I pray. If our desire is not to be on fire for Your Kingdom set us a fire for it this day. I pray for your Kingdom come and for your will to be done on earth as it is already being done in heaven.
AMEN/SO BE IT!!!

Heavenly Father, I come to you tonight humble, and grateful for all the many blessings you have bestowed upon me. In the midst of the chaos that is my life, I still manage to have great, happy days filled with the love of family and friends that only you could’ve placed in my life. As I began my new year, celebrating 31 years on this earth, I’d like to thank you. Thank you Jesus for all you have done, and continue to do for me.
In my new year I ask that you continue to bless and guide me for that I may walk in the path of your choosing. As I continue my jobsearch in these tough times, I ask that you be with me Jesus, and open my eyes to avenues I may not know exist. I ask you Lord, for my continued good health, great spirits, and unyielding faith. I pray that I may be prosperous in this new year and I continue to see everyday of the present as the gift that it is and I continue to see the future as my presents yet to come.
All these things I humbly ask of thee Jesus.
Amen

Please continue to show me the grace that YOU have shown so many others. Please do not grow tired of my pleas Protect me FATHER for I am tired and heavily ladden. the worry that consumes me is unbarable and I do not want to be left desolate.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too
