Prayers: March 21, 2021

Mar 20, 2021   •  


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

  • Thank you, Lord, for the army of angels looking out for me. Psalm 91:11
  • Thank you, Lord, for living in me – how comforting to know you are a moment’s call away.
  • Thank you, Lord, that the cross of Christ puts me in oneness with you, that nothing can separate me from your love now that Jesus is my Savior.
  • Thank you, Lord, for the yellows, and pinks, and purples which are beginning to cover the earth!
  • Thank you, Lord, for meeting all my needs. Philippians 4:19


Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • Those with ongoing health concerns will be patient in the healing process
  • Those in nursing or homebound care – that they will be allowed more contact with loved ones
  • Those who have experienced fear and hate at the hands of others
  • Those who have lost their homes from recent storms and those continuing to rebuild from previous storm destruction
  • Those suffering from Covid infections and other ramifications of the virus. Pray for the vaccination process and that we may be patient and vigilant even as we see hope of more “normal” days ahead
  • For a community of workers, most behind the scenes, who add joy to our everyday life
  • To persist in using whatever God has gifted them to serve His purpose


Pray for CCC:

  • To be more active at listening than at speaking
  • To be working toward unity and seeking commonalities
  • That disagreements and quarrels do not cause Jesus to weep for us
  • That Jesus is exalted in all that we say and do
  • That we use the most powerful tool we have to shape the world – prayer – knowing that God our Father loves to give us good gifts. Prayer lets us witness God’s hand in any situation.
  • That in our Lenten journey, we may reflect on being like Jesus as he was throughout his ministry – showing forgiveness in action and word. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Ephesians 4:32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. We are called to forgive others just as Jesus did with his death on the cross.


To Think About: Let us focus on the majesty and power of our Father, the one who created all things and has never failed to take care of us in the past, is continually with us in the present and will continue to love us into heaven in the future.  “Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” Mark 10:27 NLT  This promise reminds us to gauge our situations with God’s power in mind, not our limited thinking and abilities.






  • 感謝神吩咐他的使者,在我行的一切道路上保護我。(詩篇91:11)
  • 感謝主與我同在,知道你是我隨時的幫助,讓我倍感愜意!

  • 感謝主滿足我一切需要。(腓立比書4:19)




  • 為身體有長期病痛的肢體禱告,禱告他們有耐心等侯治療的進程。
  • 為老人院或居家需要特別看護的長輩們禱告,願他們能允許有更多的時間與家人聯絡。
  • 為經歷過來自於人的恐懼和憎恨的人禱告。
  • 為最近和以前在風暴中失去家園的人禱告,也為繼續重建家園的人禱告。
  • 為遭受新冠病毒和後續病毒症狀的人禱告;為疫苗的處理過程禱告,並為我們有耐心和持謹慎的態度迎接正常生活的到來禱告。
  • 為在社區工作的幕後人員,感謝他們為我們每日的生活增添喜樂。
  • 求主保守服侍同工信念堅定,用恩賜在主的心意中服侍。



  • 讓我們主動聆聽勝過急於言表。
  • 禱告我們在侍奉中合一,尋求共同目標。
  • 意見不和與紛爭並不會讓主同情我們。
  • 讓主耶穌在我們一切的言行中被高舉。
  • 願我們知道禱告是父神最想要給我們的上好的禮物,讓我們使用禱告這最有力的工具來改變世界;讓我們親歷上帝的手掌管所有的局勢。
  • 在大齋節期,讓我們反思並學習耶穌在祂整個事工中所作的榜樣,像祂那樣言行一致饒恕他人。我们若认自己的罪,神是信实的,是公义的,必要赦免我们的罪,洗净我们一切的不义(約翰一書1:9);并要以恩慈相待,存怜悯的心,彼此饶恕,正如神在基督里饶恕了你们一样(以弗所書4:32)。我們被召就是要寬恕人,就像耶穌饒恕了我們,在十字架上捨己擔當了世上一切的過犯,使我們在父神面前可以稱義。
