Oh Lord, help every one of us to stay strong in the faith and not give into the lust of the flesh. May we not lose focus on You, so that when times of trial comes, You may relieve us of the evil situation we are in. Even in the very moment that we feel tempted and catch ourselves thinking about things that we shouldn't, may we be reminded to call upon Your Name, that You may take our thoughts captive. This way, the thoughts that have clouded our minds will be turned into good things that will glorify Your Name and no longer tear it down. Help us do this and live a righteous life in You, Jesus. I know that I am not capable of living such a life of faith, unless You are by my side. As my flesh is weak, I need You every day and every hour of my life. Your presence is what helps me choose what is right and do the right things. The Holy Spirit is able to pierce my heart when there is any sin in my life, that it may be cast out. I need this type of refreshing every day, that I may better walk in the faith. Their can't be anything that gets in the way of Your love, Lord. Since the day of my baptism, my life has been dedicated to You. I am born again in Your Spirit and I pray that I may always do Your will and not my own. May Your ways be my ways. I trust in You, God. You are my joy and my delight. I honor You and rejoice, just to know You and have You in my life. All praise to Your Holy Name. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, our God. I know that the day we live in has greatly increased in its wickedness and abominations. Surely, Your judgments are upon the wicked and their evil deeds. So many of our Christian beliefs have been trampled upon because of the society we live in today. Instead of allowing pastors to teach on marriage between husband and wife and against homosexuality, they often are in trouble because of this. And if they do not marry such people, they are put in jail and fined. This brings me so much sadness for their families and what they are going through, for Your cause. Surely, the persecution in China and other countries is great and the people of faith need You to help carry them through it. I know that You also gave a great example of the good Samaritan, but people have also discarded that teaching as well. So the poor, the needy and the homeless are left in dire straits. Their needs are not being met because so-called Christians do not comfort them, but instead walk right past them. Lord, convict such people of their sins. Help them acknowledge that only thinking of themselves is evil and will not be tolerated. It is time, Lord, for people to be accountable to their faith. Cast out every idol out of their lives and instead give them over to showcasing true love towards one another and You. Cut the hypocrisy out of their lives. Help every Christian to stay in line with your teachings and keep the faith, even until the end. I love You. I trust in You, God. Amen.

Oh Lord, I know that I am very sick now and if you desired it, You would take me home. These pains bring me to tears and sorrow. Not of heartache of not being ready to meet You, for I long to be with You, but because in the flesh I suffer. This body of flesh causes me to feel much sadness and even depression because of my illness. You know it very well, Lord. I have expressed my concerns to You, many times and I know that if it is Your will, that I would be healed already. But it has not been so and therefore, I will live this life as is, with You at the head. Now, if it is my time, then take me Lord. Just please help me not be in so much pain. And help others not to be afflicted because of my sickness. I do not wish others to regret being around me. These are the thoughts I get in my mind Lord and I pray that You will take this sadness and grief and turn it all into gladness and joy. Only You can do this. I am weak, Lord, and need Your strength. Now, in all this, I trust in You. Whatever You would do in my life, I am ready to receive it and will walk in it, till the end of my days. I know that in the past, that I would not be ready if I was to die, but I can say that I am now. Because You have covered me through Your blood and forgiven all my sins, in death, I will run to You and rejoice. Forever, will I worship You, my King. I love You Lord. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that people's hearts will be softened and that they will see a need to truly love their neighbor as themselves and drop every grudge and wall in their lives. I know that this is holding them back from Your forgiveness and mercy. May they not lose out on following You to salvation. So many people have already made up their minds on who they will forgive and who they will not. They have the unforgiven in the back of their minds and their walls are up high. This wall, unfortunately, is blocking themselves from You, Lord. I know this, since I did this same thing for my step dad for many years. I always wondered if I was truly forgiven and then it occurred to me that I had never forgiven my step dad for beating me when I was a kid. These thoughts never left my mind and there was always so much hate and bitterness in my heart for that man. However, their came a day when I saw him in church. And I don’t know exactly what came over me but forgiveness rushed through me and I ran to him, in order to give him a hug. Tears flowed down my face and the words came out, I forgive you. I love you. It was then, Lord that Your love took over in my life. I was set free from all the grudges and walls that I had put up. All the bitterness was swept away and Your love entered into my life like a wild fire. Thank You Lord. I am so grateful for Your mercy. Thank You for Your forgiveness. I now know that everyone needs forgiveness, not only from You but by me. This I know because You have spoken it. I love You Lord, even enough to forgive myself and others. Amen.

Lord God, this world is surely in trouble and I pray that You will come into people's lives and open their eyes before it is too late. I am afraid that the wages of sexual sin and pornography has taken way to many lives down the pit of hell and their souls are in jeopardy. These people have gone down a very dark road and there is no light in sight. Will you wake as many people up today that will listen to You. Help them know that looking at such things is not worth it. That the pleasures of the flesh is not worth losing our salvation over. I know that only You could pull me out of this addiction and I pray that as people submit their lives to You, today, that You will cleanse their wicked hearts also. May all the darkness be scattered and Your light enter them. They may not have the power to resist temptation right now, but You can build them up, Lord. You can give them the armor to fight against sin and no longer walk in it. You have done this for me and I am set free. You have given me freedom from the bondage that I was under. Satan had a hold of me, but You were able to cut those chains lose. Thank You for Your mercy and forgiveness. I did not deserve it but You extended it to me anyways. How gracious You are, my God. My hope is in You, Jesus. You are my rock and my firm foundation. I can do no evil with You in my life. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that there will be an awakening for every Mormon. May more and more people in that false religion be reached with the true gospel. This I know that their eyes will be opened. In their humility, will they see the importance of Your Words, in the Bible, and cling to You, above all else. Then will they finally quit following their prophet, who only lies and deceives people, and follow You, Jesus. This is when their souls will be truly awakened to Your truths. I pray that these people will give into You and the Holy Spirit, when they are taught. As Your messenger, I can only relay Your teachings to them and if they are willing, then they will truly be taught by the Spirit. I know that Your wrath is poured out upon them now, but there is still hope. Your arms are extended towards them all the day long, and if they would just repent and leave the church today, they'd find mercy. I know that it will take a lot of prayers, visiting with them and just caring for their needs, before this change will occur for most. But Lord, I will go the distance. I will do as You have called me and find the lost and bring them unto You. I just pray that more people will join in with me in Your cause. I know that Mormons can still be saved and go to heaven, I just pray that many more will and not have to go to hell. It hurts me badly to think that a lot of my family is tied up in that church. Help them Lord. May they come out of it and to You, in Your Holy Name. I trust in You, Jesus. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that people will turn to You before it is too late. May they seek You when brokenness finally sets into their hearts. When these people are finally sick and tired of all their shame and people deceiving them, will they finally look to You for answers? And if not so right away, I pray that You will use somebody to reach them, in order to show them the way. I know how it is to live a life of guilt and being so upset with all the people that hurt me. I had a chance to make matters worse or look to You for answers. And I am so happy that I made the right decision, that day. The lusts of the flesh may have been peaked at this time in my life, but it never lasted. I did not want to go another day with not having control over myself and my actions. I knew that evil spirits had a hold of my life and I wanted to be set free. And God, I knew that nobody could do such a work but You. You were the only person I could go to for not only answers but for a miracle, as well. I needed healing in my life, not only for sicknesses, but also for my brokenness and all my sins. I needed an awakening to do what is right and that is what You did for me. Your presence came over me and gave me the peace I needed. Then, once I knew that You still loved me and have even forgiven me, I was so amazed. Thank You God. I was lost but You found me. You brought light back into my life. There is true joy that accompanies my life now and it is because of You. Thank You Jesus. I love You. Amen.

Lord, I know that what I have to share with this lost generation will only influence those that are truly seeking You and have an open heart. For this reason, each time I go out in your harvest, I just pray that You lead me to the one that is ready to receive You. I pray that You are my hands and feet and open my mouth to speak. For what I have to say is meaningless but Your words are for salvation. I need the Holy Spirit with me always, that people's hearts will be pricked and follow You. May the people of this world come to a knowledge of You, Jesus, for salvation. May not all the wicked be destroyed at Your coming. I pray that even a few of them will repent and come to a relationship with You, God, before the end is come. I know that people will reject me, but I have nothing to fear, for You are with me. You are my rock and my fortress. Though these people are stumbling through this life and are in darkness, I know that my feet are on solid ground. Where I walk, there is light and light abundant. There is no guilt or shame but love and peace fills the atmosphere. Because You have broken every chain of addiction in my life, I am set free. I come to You Lord, for there is no one that has the power to save but You, Jesus. I trust in You Lord. You are my healer and my Mighty God. I am strengthened each day that I seek You. You are my hope and I love You. Amen.

Lord, I know that the times that I feel unworthy of Your presence, I may not feel like I deserve You, but You come into my life anyways. And with my confessions, You cleanse me of my sins. This is when my shame and guilt, that I've kept inside for all that time, is now undone. Because You have come and purged me of my sins, I am able to refocus upon You and Your will. There is nothing that is stopping me any longer, for my guard is up and You are with me. I then know that I need You more than ever. I truly am a sitting duck and will easily fall victim to temptation without Your presence, ever so in my life. I am dead without You, but are alive in Your love. When You come and resurrect my soul, I am able to stand up and walk in faith again. It is, however, my own fault when I forget You and fall flat on my face, while giving into the lusts of the flesh. In these moments I feel so down and distraught. I feel like I have given up everything. I am so glad, however, that You don't give up on me. You continue to reach Your hand of mercy out to me, that my sins may be cleansed. Even if it is again and again, You do it because You love me. Thank You for never forsaking me. I trust in You, Lord. I love You. Amen.
