God intended that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. ‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, We are His offspring.’ Acts 17:28
I present to you the people of God as a whole and those who will be reading this.
Thank you father for this day and for your mercy, for your company. I worship you Jesus for your kindness and patience; you are awesome God and there is nobody besides you. I thank you for calling us to this glorious new life, for showing us our potential and taking us out of darkness, depression and indifference. Thank you for a change of heart and a blood transfusion. It’s invisible, supernatural but I know it’s as real as the air I breathe. We live you, we feel and hear you, thank you for your time, counsel and comfort.
Thank you for making us a new creation and giving us a new name. I can thank you forever but I present this fast to u and I pray for each purpose in our lives would be clearly, revealed to us. I pray for liberation from the spirit of fear, anxiety and neediness that attacks us every now and then and causes us to feel sad, alone or misunderstood. I pray you God would change our speech from slander, judgement, gossip or vulgarities to conversations of love, faith and hope.
I also pray for the youth that u bind up the demonic oppression that attack us both in the world and in the church, in the mighty name of Jesus.
Help us to seek approval from you God, and not man. Help us to stand firm against the ungodly sinful desires of our flesh and provide for us an escape when temptations come. Help us God to use our talents and spiritual gifts in cohesion to be a blessing. And help us believe in your power not ours. I pray Lord Jesus that our friends would seek to come closer to u. Draw them to you God so that we may all separate ourselves from the world to be more like you and serve you with delight. I pray that u would change our perceptions of ourselves and our lives and that we may see ourselves how you see us. I pray we would be fearless because perfect love casts out fear, and you love us with a PERFECT LOVE! I pray for tolerance, meekness, patience and the fruits of the spirit to reign in our every day character. May we taste our words before we speak them, and when we speak may it be at the right time, after being preserved and well seasoned.
I pray for our respective husbands and wives, that you may touch them whatsoever they are doing and bring our names and faces into their hearts and minds even now. I pray for unity in relationships, and the desire to please one another mutually. I pray we would feel the desire to worship and praise you, to romance you Holy Spirit. May we all worship you in good times and bad, may we trust fully in your perfect will as we surrender more each day. I arrest pride and confusion in the lives of our loved ones, and in our relationships.
We are grateful for your company because we would be lost without you Lord. Where would we be without you? Thank you for your word. Thank you for your church. Thank you for America.
