Daily Prayer for August 29th
Hello! Here is the daily prayer…
Dear Gracious Heavenly Father,
We thank you for the opportunity to gather again to pray. There are so many that are being denied that privilege around the world. Help us to never take for granted the opportunities we have to worship, to pray and to read your word. We pray for the persecuted, Lord and we ask for their deliverance and for their protection. We pray for all that are in harm’s way, today Lord, whether it be from natural disasters, violence, accidents or illness. We ask for your angels to be around each of your children and to please place a hedge of protection around them, to keep them from harm.
Lord, we ask that you will touch each person that is praying with us today. We ask that they will sense your nearness. We come not only to ask and to receive from you, Lord, but we also want to get to know you better.
Lord, as I read the many needs that are posted here and in our groups, I see so many that are overwhelmed. They pray, but they don’t know where to start or how to begin to change their situations. They seek solutions Lord, and we know that your timing is not always our timing, Father. Lord, I pray that as they wait, that they would seek your direction and guidance and just take one step at a time. Nothing is ever accomplished or finished in one fell swoop. It’s lots of small steps that get us to where we need to be. When we look at the big picture, we are easily overwhelmed, but life broken down into one hour at a time or one day at a time, is much more manageable. Sometimes it’s all just about starting with the basics of life when we have been side-lined by grief, illness or loss.
We have to start somewhere and any steps we take to help ourselves are steps in the right direction. Lead and guide each one here, Lord. Whisper in their ear to remind them that you have never left their side and you are just waiting for the perfect time to answer their prayers.
We pray that you will take our burdens and cares today Lord. We cast them upon you and we are trusting that as we learn to do this daily, that we will begin to feel lighter and not as weighed down…that we will have a clearer sense of direction and focus. Thank you Lord for this day and we ask that you help us to find the joy in it. May we remember our many blessings and make that our focus today. May we seek to be a blessing to those around us. We celebrate you today Lord! In Jesus name we pray, Amen
Blessings, hugs and love to you all,
