Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, I pray that more people in the faith will begin to trust in You. May they become true disciples of You and desire to be led by You also. May their lives find room for the Bible, prayer and witnessing Your truths to other people. I am grateful to be an evangelist and to go on the streets. There are just days that there are so many people to reach but only few of us. That is when my heart breaks for these people that miss out on Your gospel message. I can see the lost condition they are in and my heart faints when they miss out. Just thinking about what it would be like for them if they knew about You, Jesus, I know would be a life change. This is why making disciples is so important. Christians are more than believers but followers of You, and I pray that this sinks into their hearts. These dear brothers and sisters can be used do Your work if they but trust in You and lean on You, Lord. I pray that these wonderful people will join me in God's harvest. May they lay aside their own priorities and begin to put You first in their lives. This is the start of them going all in for You, Lord. I know that You will make them courageous to do many great and marvelous things. Many more souls will be saved if people will just respond to Your call today. I trust in You, Lord. My hope is in You. I love You. Amen.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, help us to watch our tongues and strive not to say things that hurt other people. To those people that we have already offended, bring those things we've said to our minds that we may come to them and mend every wrong. I pray that forgiveness is felt, in the person's life that is sorry. May their sincerity of their actions speak volumes of the person they are now for You, Jesus. Help people see the change in their lives and forgive them as You are so gracious to forgive us. May our thoughts be purified in Your blood. Help us stay focused on what is pure and holy. We only want to do Your will, so please help us love one another. Shine down Your love, that we may truly say and act as You have us do. May Your presence change us and conform us to live to Your standards. That the Word of the Bible may be imprinted in our hearts.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, help break free the chains of addiction in people's lives. May they fully come out of every evil way. May those people suffering with smoking or vaping, no longer be in bondage but let loose from the slavery. Help everyone that is addicted to drinking be made sober. For every person that is under the influence of drugs, may they find a way to escape, through Your matchless power. Even those people that are involved with pornography, convict them also of their wrongs, that they may repent. May all these types of people turn from their sins today and find refuge in Your matchless arms of mercy. My heart goes out to these people. I know that You can give them the power to escape the temptations of the devil. I pray that they do call upon Your name and confess their sins today. They may be weak in the flesh but You can do all things for those that trust in You. You make us courageous to do things we are not able to do on our own. And most importantly, since my chains are broken, I am so grateful for Your forgiveness and grace. Thank You for freeing me from a life of sin, that I might serve You, my King. I love You. I praise You. Amen.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, I pray that more people that proclaim themselves to be Christians, also act the part. May they gain understanding from the Bible, church pastors and other people in the faith and let the message absorb in their hearts. Help them to act on what they have been taught and truly live for You, Lord. It is my prayer that during the week, they continue to seek You. Help them overcome temptation, as they rely on You for understanding. May they be wise in Your wisdom and no longer rely on their own understanding. Help them understand that only You can lead us to heaven. We may have good ideas but only relying on Your counsel is to salvation. I know that I am capable of only doing so much in life and at that, going so far. Without You, I am lost. My life has no light when You are not there. This is when I make foolish decisions and fall back into my old ways of doing things and thinking. Help me and those in the faith to never rely on ourselves fully but in You and Your Word for understanding and knowledge. Help us to be humble at all times. That when you speak to our hearts, through the Bible, prayer and other people, that we will be open to accept Your message of hope. I love You Lord. My hope is in You and what You can do for my life and through it. Amen.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, I pray for everyone that is in the faith. May they never lose hope in You Jesus. There is only salvation in Your Name. May they never forget this. May their prayers never cease, lest they fall into temptation. I pray that they continue to draw near unto You at all times, lest their faith is tried. May your words be written in their hearts and that they may be an encouragement to us all, when times of trouble. Help us discover the best outlets in life and give up anything that leads us away from You. Instead of constant TV watching, may it be replaced with Bible Study and prayer. Instead of allowing ourselves to go to certain events that lower our guard, help us make time with people in the faith. That we may fellowship with them and continue to look up to You. Lastly, may our desires be for You. Take every evil thought from our minds. Deliver us from any addiction that compromises our faith and break every chain. Lead us from darkness and into Your light. Help us be a light to this generation and live a life of faith. May our faith be known among the men and women that we are around and be used by You at all times. I know that I am safe, when You are in my life. I have no need to fear, for You are by my side. I love You Lord. Amen.

Daily Prayer:
Lord, I know that only You can bring us to be honest, loving and forgiving people. We can try all we want to do these things on our own but we will always come up short. Our own goodness may seem right but without You, there is no substitute. I know this Lord, for I tried to do the same things for way to many years in my life. And in this, my own great ideas always came with consequences and shame. And now, my mind has now been opened as to why. Without You, there is only darkness. I was lost in my own way of living and thinking. Then, when I came to You in prayer, my eyes were opened. Where I could not be honest and often find myself in hard times, there was a new confidence that You put inside of me. And this change of mind also added honesty. Because You are my confidence, now I only want to be truthful, no matter the consequence. Because I have found grace in Your eyes, it doesn't matter what other people think. Even when people are hurtful, You help me show love to them. There are no more walls but forgiveness. As You have shown me mercy and forgiveness I am able to show the same to people in my life. Thank You for instilling these characteristics of honesty, love and forgiveness. I am so grateful. I love You Lord. Amen.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, help us to show kindness to everyone around us. May Your love shine through us and into other people's lives. I pray that more people will be uplifted while being in our presence and that they will be at peace. That the Holy Spirit will take over the atmosphere and give them rest. It is You that lifts us up, therefore, we are to also lift up and love our neighbor. To showcase Your peace, while among them is an amazing gift and only You could help us do such things. We know that we ourselves are incapable of living a life of charity but with You in our lives, we are more than conquerors. You lead us to love those that hate us. Even those people that hurt us, You help us forgive them. In this life, where so many hurtful things happen to us every day, You help us show mercy to these people. Your compassion takes over our lives and gives us over to be kind and considerate of everyone's needs. Yes Lord, You help us put others' lives first. You give us over to pray for our enemies and help us continue to bless them. This is the happiness You give. We are just so grateful that You can use us for Your kingdom. For You to shine down on us and other people, through us, is a gift that we cherish. I love You Lord. Amen.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, please help those in the faith understand the importance of repentance. May they come to realize how short this life is and get right with You before it is too late. It is such a foolish thing to put off our day of repentance but too many decide to do so and are paying the consequences, come judgement. Oh how fearful that day is for the wicked. I just pray Lord, that less people that proclaim to be Christians do not fall into this category. I know that many so-called Christians are already on a path to destruction and hell awaits them. This saddens me deeply. Because they decided to live a different life than what You instructed in scripture, they will be judged according to their knowledge. And I know that when You said to not call you Lord, if I do not do what You say, You meant it. For we will not be accepted into Your kingdom if we were not for You in this life. I know now how important it really is to be made right in Your presence. To be made clean is so important. Now that the Holy Spirit is in my life, I never want to quench it or be left alone. If I am in sin, I want to know and repent immediately. I know that it is better to turn from my sins and have forgiveness, then pay the price later. You are my God and it is my desire to live for You. I love You more than the things of this world. Amen.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, I pray for those that are addicted to drinking alcohol. My heart is saddened to see these people destroying their lives. So many marriages are shattered because of spouses and even children getting drunk. Unnecessary contention is stirred up because of alcohol. There is so much sadness and depression because of this drug. Lord, convict every person with this addiction that what they are doing is wrong. Help them know that when they drink, they are not only hurting their own lives but the people they are around. May they come to realize the gravity of their situation with the people they are around and You. Help them know that until their chains are broken, their lusts for these things will never stop. Only You can scatter the darkness and lead us into Your light. We are not able to be sober minded on our own but You can help us overcome all things. We are overcomers with You in our life, Jesus. May more Christians learn the importance of fighting against sin and no longer abide in it. Help them understand the importance of raising their shield of faith, in order to fight against temptation. It is when we let our guard down is when things start to fall apart. So we ask You, Lord, to lead us and guide us. Help us to be warriors for Your cause. Your love surpasses the happiness of this world, for Your love is greater. There is so much more joy in Your presence. We love You. Amen.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, thank You for this glorious day. Thank You for leading me to the home of Angela and Toni, about six months back. It has been a great journey and I am so grateful that it has led us to this day of baptism. To see them finally get to the point where their lives have been given over to You in faith is amazing to witness. Then, to see them take the next step and repent and be baptized is awesome. Lord, two weeks back, You spoke through me about baptism and they responded in a big way. I know that You did it all that day. You opened their hearts to baptism and helped them understand the meaning and importance. I am grateful for that today and today and give You all the glory. Yes God, on this glorious day, these two women have been baptized and received You into their lives. You have taken them in and saved them. They have been brought forth into Your kingdom. Thank You for their willing hearts to come to You fully. It is such a pleasure to be there for them in this moment of their lives. I just pray that they remember the importance of this day and never forget it. May they continue to call upon Your Name and repent. I trust in You, Jesus. I love You Lord. Amen.

Oh how I love You, Jesus. You are my Lord and the One who gives life. Thank You for coming into my life. You have saved my soul from hell. All the darkness has been scattered and Your light has come in to show me the way. I am secure in this fallen world, for You are with me. Because You heard my cries and had mercy for my sins, my shame is gone. Now my life is filled with Your love. Thank You for the cross. Thank You for dying for my sins, that I might be forgiven and set free. Thank You for rising from the dead. Because You did rise, there is hope for tomorrow. I have faith in a risen Lord, for You are alive today. And because of what You have done, I am a new creation. In baptism, I have died to myself and am now alive in You. Your death, burial and resurrection, I have felt and has become who I am today. What You have done for me has overwhelmed my soul. My soul has been set on fire, because of the Holy Spirit that You have brought into my life. My hopes and dreams are alive and You have made it all happen. I look to You for answers, for I trust in You. You are everything to me Lord. I love You. Amen.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, I pray that more believers will become doers of Your words also. May their faith have fruits also. But above all, open the hearts of these people that they may learn of You. Help them know the importance of turning from their sins and becoming a new creation in You, Jesus. It is nothing we can do that is good but what You can do for our lives that is excellent. Everything that You do for us is beneficial in every way. We would be very wise to come to You often in prayer and Bible study to learn from You, my King. There is no other place that holds the knowledge we need to go on in life and be led on a path of righteousness. We would never know the right way to heaven, if You were not leading us. There is so many obstacles in our way and only by giving ear to Your counsel, are we able to know the right way to live. I know that the day that I started seeking You with all my heart, is when my life changed. I was no longer living a life on my own. I now had You to confide in and direct my paths. I am now safe in Your arms, Jesus. You are my rock and my firm foundation. Thank You for using me for Your kingdom. I am so blessed. I love You. Amen.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, help us all become a true follower of You. May our belief in You speak volumes about what we say and do for You in this life. Let Your light so shine upon us that we may be examples of those in the faith. We are open to receive the Holy Spirit and to be led by You in all things. Use us for Your greater good. Change our lives and lead us from temptation. Help us seek what is greater in this life, which is Your love, and leave the world behind. May we stop lifting ourselves up but lift You up before men. It is greater to make a name for You, God, then to make a name for ourselves. I pray that we are right in Your presence above what the world thinks. The wicked people in this world can make fun and persecute us in the faith but my trust in You will never fail. You are the rock of my salvation. Where shall I go but to You for answers. You are Savior and dearest friend. When I pray and read Your Words in the Bible, I am safe. You give me strength to endure all things. Thank You for being there for me Lord. I believe in You. I trust in You, Jesus. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, thank You for showing such compassion towards us as sinners. Thank You for taking us in, when there was only hopelessness. You heard our cries and had mercy for our souls.

My troubles are long gone for You have come into my life. I am alive because of You, Jesus. You have come and resurrected me and breathed into my soul new life.

That what I say may be wholesome and considerate to everyone. That temptation may flee by Your hand and that my shield of faith may be raised all the day long. Yes, I am strong with You in my life.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, I pray that people in the faith will be convicted of their sins and repent. May this conviction to follow You, lead them to the waters of baptism. So many people rely on their faith alone for salvation. However, what they do not realize is that faith without works is dead. To live their life alone, without You, is no salvation at all. I am so grateful for baptism. That is the time that You did come into my life and made me alive. I was dead but was crucified with You, at the cross, Jesus. Then, as I come out of the water, You give me newness of life. This was my new beginning and I am so grateful for this opportunity to have You in my life now. I was so lost in this world without You. In baptism, You have set a fire in my soul to serve You, my King. Where there was so much darkness in my life, You have scattered it and ushered in Your light. Where there was shame and guilt, You've replaced it with Your love. I no longer serve the lusts of the flesh but fight it with You, Jesus, in my life. You are my shield and my fortress. I am made strong with You by my side. Thank You for coming into my life, through baptism. I needed You and You came. Thank You so much, dear Lord. I believe in You. I trust in You. You are my joy. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, we praise You. Through the storms of life, You have come through. You have heard our cries and shown us great mercy. Nothing is like Your compassion. Nothing is like Your kindness and love. Your compassion has pierced through every bit of shame and raised me up into newness of life. Your love has broken every chain and brought me into Your light. I made new through Your blood. What was once sadness has been replaced with gladness. All my fears are gone, for You have come to my rescue. I am safe in Your arms. Nothing can lead me away from Your love. You have made me confident in my faith. My zeal to follow You increases day by day. The day that You forgave my sins, a fire was lit in my soul to serve You, my King. It is an honor to walk with You, my Lord. You are all mighty to save. All blessings and honor to Your holy Name. All the praises to You, my God. I lift You up higher than all things. My heart sings out to You, my Savior and friend. I rejoice in the Messiah, that has come, to save us all from our sins. I love You. Amen.
