Prayer For September 7th

September 7, 2017

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the opportunity to gather together once again. Lord, our hearts are heavy…you tell us to grieve with those who grieve and there are many who are grieving… there are many people who have dealt with death and loss, hurricanes, floods, fires…not just in the United States, but around the world…there are many tragedies around the world that have not even found their way to the main stream news because there is just so much to deal with in the U.S…

Father, it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed and helpless…but where two or three are gathered, you are in our midst…you tell us to pray without ceasing and to seek your face and your strength…you tell us that the prayers of the righteous does much…you tell us to come boldly to your throne of grace and to keep on praying for your people…you tell us if we are in trouble, that we should pray….and Father, you see all, you know all, you know our needs before we ask, and you see all who are in trouble…all who are in need…all who are waking up to devastation from storms and fires and loss of loved ones…all who are grappling with bad news, losses and harsh new realities…

Father, we lift to you all the things that we are powerless to change… all the storms, hurricanes, fires and floods…all who are hurting, ill and in pain… we lift to you all who are full of fear, worry and anxiety…all  who are in harm’s way…

Lord, we raise our collective voices and ask you to intervene and calm the winds and waves of the storms…we ask you to recede the flooded waters…we ask for miracles of rain and snow where fires are out of control…we ask for strength and protection for all who are working so hard to protect and serve in the most difficult of circumstances…we ask for provision for all who are homeless, jobless, and who have lost everything…we pray for hope to rise…we pray for beauty to rise from the ashes…we pray to rise up with hope in our hearts because we may be helpless, but you aren’t…we may feel small and powerless against forces of nature, but you aren’t…we look to you, Father, because we know where our help comes from…it comes from you Our Redeemer and Deliverer…our hearts are heavy for others and some of us are weary from our own struggles and trials…but we know that you will give us the grace and strength we need to face this day and every day to come.

We give you all the heavy things that you never intended for us to carry…we ask you to bind our wounds and heal us in body, mind and spirit. Help us to rise like eagles and renew our strength. We give you this day and all that’s in it. In the precious name of Jesus we pray. Amen

Blessings be upon you friends!

Always in His love,
