O Lord,

I give you my worries and concerns and I ask for your guidance. You see it all, the outer circumstances, the inner turmoil. I know that you understand my life, that sometimes my heart weighs heavy with trouble. Right now I lay all these things before you. I breathe in, safe in the knowledge that I am held by grace. I breathe out, knowing that I am held secure in your arms. And I wait on you. For you are all truth, you are overflowing love, you are a beacon of hope and a fortress of faith.

Lord, I choose to be attentive to your voice. May I be alert to your Spirit’s guiding as I journey onwards with you.

I love you Father. Amen.

Father be with him/her and solve his/her problems because it’s within your power to do so.
You’re the omniscient and omnipotent God who delivered the Israelites from the hands of the Pharaoh. You know what she’s passing through even more than him/her. So, I pray Lord Christ, that you grant him/her the necessary strength and support to pull through these circumstances. Thank you for this miracle oh Lord and we appreciate the upcoming testimonies—in Jesus Name I pray.

Amen.

God, as we stand before you today as a congregation, we pray for the sake of this family. We hope, oh Lord, that you empower us with your support and be our pillar of strength.

So, Jesus, be with our souls and once more, give us encouragement in the form of peace, unity, and blessings.

Prayer #10
