July 2018 Prayer


Merciful God, in your great love for us, may we never forget your desire for obedience.  In your great grace, may we never trample your holiness. Apart from you, there is no love found in us for you are love.  In our culture, we see the forces of evil pulling and tugging, tearing and destroying. We are not caught by surprise because you prepared us for this eventuality in your Holy Word.  You told us there would be a great falling away. May we as Templars never be found amongst the numbers of people who have fallen away. By your strong and mighty hand, protect us and sustain us, that we may live and move in this, your creation as you intended and for your glory.


Steel our resolve as the devil prowls about to steal our joy.  May we never lose sight of the cross that purchased our salvation and the empty tomb which provides our hope and our promise.  May the blood of your son, sacrificed for us, cleanse us as you have promised. And may we never live lives that cheapen his most indescribable gift.


For it is in Christ’s name we ask it and for his sake.  Amen.

June 2018 Prayer


Most Holy Father, thank you for your love and your grace, thank you for your Holy word, thank you for your Son who gave his life so that we might live. 


Your endless love abounds and rains down on us all, nurturing us and allowing us to grow as your children.


We pray that we live each day in a way that says, “thank you” for all that you’ve done, and continue to do, for us. 


Help us to be a Christ-like example for others; may the light of your love and grace shine from within us leading those in darkness into the light.


Help us to have hearts that are open and accepting of others; help us to extend a welcoming hospitality to all, especially those whose hearts have been opened to your gentle knock. Thank you for comforting us Father so that we, in turn, may comfort others.


May we do all these good things in your holy name; and may we give all honor, praise, and glory to you.  


Amen.

May 2018 Prayer


Almighty Father, we thank you for your son Jesus Christ who is a perfect example of grace, mercy, humility and love.


We are weak in temptation and have sinned against you in thought, word and deed. Satan utilizes any medium to separate us from God and weaken our faith. We are being deceived through politics to hate, lie and boast to inflate our ego’s, and to stop loving our neighbors as ourselves.


We ask you Father to implore your tender mercy’s through Your body and blood to cleanse us. We are truly sorry for all our immorality, pride and utterly renounce whatsoever is contrary to Your will.


We pray to devote ourselves to returning  our character as to Jesus Christ through humility, meekness and truth, so we can honestly follow Jesus again. We pray continuously so that we can love as Jesus instructed us, to love our neighbors as ourselves. IJN, 

Amen

April 2018 Prayer


Most gracious Father,


We come to you today to thank you for all you have done. Father, for allowing us the privilege to enter your presence is something we don’t want to take for granted…and right now, we want to make the most use of.


Right now, oh Lord, we come to you on behalf of our brothers and sisters around the world who are suffering for your name’s sake. Grant them peace, strength, and boldness, as they seek to glorify your name in lands where the enemy seeks to silence your great and awesome glory. Father, gird them up in the power of your salvation, and clothe them in spirit of meekness and wisdom, as they set out to reach others with your saving gospel.


Most holy Saviour, we ask that you give us the boldness here – where there is no true persecution – to be strong and ever repentant witnesses of your holiness and saving grace. Grant us the power from on high to reach our world with the gospel of Christ, and give us the boldness to live that gospel daily – regardless of the consequences.


All this we ask in the most precious, and holy name of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.


Amen

February 2018 Prayer


Father God, You are our creator and sustainer of life. You are the one who formed and placed the stars in existence, yet you know us by name. 


You have the number of hairs on our head numbered. You see the rising of the sun and the going down of the same and you are not subject to its rising or setting, it is subject to you and to your authority. In our day and time, we see the effects of sin all around us.  


Our pastors flee from the authority given to them and burn with lust of the flesh rather than the fire and boldness of the Holy Spirit. Our churches have a semblance of the one who created them yet deny the power you have created them to be. And we see a world in decay as a result.  


We ask, as your called and as your children, that you would give us a holy boldness to proclaim the truth of the Gospel of your son. 


 We ask in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of Christ that you would go before us, dwell in us, cover over us and speak through us that this world would see the life changing and saving grace that you offer through the blood of the lamb. 


 We ask that you protect our brothers and sisters in harms way and downrange, who suffer immense persecution for their faith. 


 We pray that their strength in peril emboldens us to support them in prayer and in service. And may you use us for YOUR GLORY, not for ours, as we seek to build your kingdom in this fallen world, and in these unfit vessels. 


In Christ’s Holy and Precious Name we pray, 


Amen.
