God’s divine nature is Love.
Lord Jesus, I thank you for your Holy Spirit! I thank you for all the awesome work you have done in me. I thank you for the fruit of the spirit in my friends and family, and even those reading. I thank you for your mercy which reaches us even in our most reckless and careless moments in life. Thank you for stretching out your love towards us no matter what we do, and to be honest with you how we act. By grace, you still deal with us even in our sin, so I thank you greatly for grace.
I thank you for all the times you have spoken to us, in our rebellion, in our depression and in our immaturity. I thank you for your direction, and strategies even in the most stressful or confusing times. I thank you for ministry partnerships, and the wisdom to operate. I thank you for a physical church to attend, and for the commitment and endurance of the pastors and leadership within the body of Christ. I ask you for the fruit of your Spirit: love, faith, peace, patience, joy, gentleness, self control and meekness. I also ask that you may bless us with spiritual growth, in the areas of godliness, endurance, knowledge of your word and spiritual things like deliverance, manifestations, gifts, and prophecy. I ask you to continue to fill us with discernment and wisdom, along with understanding. May we grow as Christians, break the routine God; open doors and remove blindfolds! I pray for hope and faith as well, but above all I ask you to impart unto us the fruit of Love.
I thank you for our freedom in America. I pray for the politicians and those in government related leadership, may they seek you Jesus for wisdom. may they consider the principle of your word, to protect the nation’s freedoms and moral code. I pray you would bring holy spirit filled believers to counsel in the office of the President’s cabinet, congress and the house of representatives. May those of us, who feel the tug of entrepreneurship answer God’s call and provide jobs for others. I pray you give us the wisdom to make America prosperous again. And I also pray for the people in America to be saved and delivered from mental illness, physical afflictions, spiritual blindness and rebellion towards God.
Thank you Lord that you break chains, destroy strongholds and change generations. I praise you because we have been fearfully and wonderfully made. I present those people who are suffering from sickness or disease to you, may you comfort and strengthen in the hospital beds and where they may be even now. I pray you would change diagnosis, and astound doctors by your miraculous power. I know you are the all powerful God. And I know you are faithful, and just. I thank you that you heal the sick, care for the widows and are a father to the fatherless. I present to you those children who are in adoption agencies, and in the foster homes; may you lead loving and responsible parents to receive and raise them in the stability of their homes. I pray for families who have been unjustly separated, and for the mishaps of any agencies accusing families of neglect or abuse when it was not the case. I pray against all malicious works in blended families, from incest to molestation, to envy and hatred. Bless our homes God, renew our hearts Jesus. And make us more loving towards ourselves, each other and all you have created.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
