Prayers: December 27, 2020

Dec 26, 2020   •  


Pray in thanksgiving for God’s presence in our lives:

  • Thank you, Lord, for Jesus, the One who brought us Christmas to light our world and bring hope to our days.
  • Thank you, Lord, for being my Shepherd and making me lie down in green pastures to refresh my soul.
  • Thank you, Lord, that the strength needed to withstand life’s challenges comes from You, not me.
  • Thank you, Lord, that when I pray You not only act around me, but within me.
  • Thank you, Lord, that your Spirit is working within me today, helping me to believe the promises I have read in Your Word. Psalm 128:1-2

Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • Those with ongoing health concerns. Pray that doctors will have wisdom to diagnose and provide treatment.
  • Those in nursing or homebound care. Pray that a smile or kind word even communicated over the phone may be an encouragement.
  • Those affected by the pandemic either as victims or caregivers. Pray that we wait on the Lord for He will renew our strength.  Isaiah 40:31  Even as we place hope in a COVID vaccine for our earthly safety, we must know the hope of Jesus who secures our heavenly eternity.
  • That we may encourage others who are in despair – God oversees the course of events, and “He has made everything beautiful in its time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11
  • That we may use our powerful tongues for building others up with the news of Jesus, not for comments of negativity.
  • That the hearts of those with whom we share the gospel may be opened and receptive to God’s wonderful gift.

Pray for CCC:

  • To realize we may still spread the Good News of Jesus Christ even through a pandemic which changes everything we used to do.
  • That the Lord may open doors in 2021 for us to proclaim His message clearly and boldly. Colossians 4:3-4
  • That we may be set apart in this world by doing things without grumbling and complaining which is the norm. When we live our lives in grateful obedience to God, we will shine “like stars in the sky.” Philippians 2:  14-15
  • To be good neighbors even if it takes us out of our way
  • For a time of refreshment between holidays – even though we’re still at home, may we do something fun and different!
  • With thanksgiving for all the hands that helped with Christmas giving and outreach. May those who received experience the love and hope of our heavenly Father.
  • Thank God for the opportunity to grow closer to God through the CCC ADVENTures experiences this month.


To Think About: 2020 is a year that many of us would like to put behind us quickly; but for Christians, no matter what our circumstances may be, our goal in life is to meet Jesus at the finish line where our eternity begins with him and God, our Father.  No, dear brothers, I am still not all I should be, but I am bringing all my energies to bear on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God is calling us up to heaven because of what Christ Jesus did for us. Philippians 3:13-14 TLB
