Prayers: March 28, 2021

Mar 26, 2021   •  


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

  • Thank you, Lord, that You will sustain and carry me through my lifetime. Isaiah 46:4
  • Thank you, Lord, that when I seek You, I can see you at work
  • Thank you, Lord, that You walk ahead of me so I have nothing to fear. Deuteronomy 31:8
  • Thank you, Lord, that I can go outside without my heavy coat!
  • Thank you, Lord, for the gift of Your Word which confirms, affirms and guides me.


Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • Those with ongoing health concerns will experience healing both physically and spiritually
  • Those in nursing or homebound care will wake with joy every morning
  • Those who have lost loved ones to malevolent acts of violence
  • That we all may exercise patience and perseverance to do what is good for others
  • For wisdom for our pastors giving counsel to those in distress
  • That we may encourage those around us with hope even though the world is causing them to feel hopeless
  • Those dealing with issues from the coronavirus pandemic.
  • That we accept one another just as Christ accepted us, in order to bring praise to God. Romans 15:7


Pray for CCC:

  • That our Easter worship will be pleasing to God. Sing to the Lord not only for our own inspiration but also for those around us who hear it.  Psalm 40:3
  • To emulate the virtues Paul wrote about that all believers are called to live out – reconciliation, joy, gentleness, prayer, and focus—things we’re called to live out as believers in Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7
  • To have a greater hunger to seek, study, and know the Bible and understand God’s wisdom. “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Joshua 1:8
  • As children of Light, let us take interest in the well-being of others, to conform to God’s standards, and to follow the truth in Scripture rather than living by the ways of the world. Ephesians 5:8-14
  • That in our Lenten journey, we may reflect on being like Jesus as he was throughout his ministry – withdrawing to pray with our Father – to be in tune with His will for our lives, to be renewed with His strength, to gain the courage to be obedient. Luke 5:16 But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer.  Matthew 6:6 when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. We are called to pray with love for our Father, on a regular basis, in any setting, for others, and with expectation that God will answer according to His will, not ours.


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.  If you love me, obey me; and I will ask the Father and he will give you another Comforter, and he will never leave you. John 14:15-16 TLB  This promise reminds us that God is with us always in the person of the Holy Spirit, helping us through any situation we may encounter in this world.






  • 感謝主,自從我們生下,就蒙你保抱、懷揣,直到我們年老髮白,你仍懷抱和堅固我們。(以賽亞書46:4)
  • 感謝主,當我想要找到你時,就能在各樣事情中看到你在做工。
  • 感謝神行在我前面,與我同在,使我毫無懼怕,也不驚惶。(申命記31:8)
  • 感謝主我出門在外時不用穿著厚重的大衣了。!
  • 感謝神賜給我們聖經,用你的話語肯定我、堅固我、引導我!.




  • 為身體有長期病痛的肢體禱告,禱告他們能經歷肉體和心靈的醫治。
  • 為老人院或居家需要特別看護的長輩們禱告,願他們每日早晨帶著喜樂的心從睡夢中蘇醒。
  • 為在惡意暴行中失去親人的家庭禱告。
  • 禱告我們大家都能操練耐心和恆心去做有益於他人的事情。
  • 求主幫助牧者有智慧安慰處於磨難中的人。
  • 讓我們鼓勵周圍的人要有盼望,儘管現在的世代令人感到絕望。
  • 為工作、身體、學業、家庭和個人生活等各個層面遭受新冠病毒衝擊的人們禱告。
  • 所以,你們要彼此接納,如同基督接納你們一樣,使榮耀歸於神(羅馬書15:7)。




  • 求主保守我們的復活節崇拜合他心意。他使我口唱新歌,就是讚美我們神的話。許多人必看見而懼怕,並要倚靠耶和華(詩篇40:3)。
  • 保羅在腓立比書4:4-7中給出了基督徒當有的美德:你們要靠主常常喜樂,我再說,你們要喜樂! 當叫眾人知道你們謙讓的心。主已經近了。 應當一無掛慮,只要凡事藉著禱告、祈求和感謝,將你們所要的告訴神。神所賜出人意外的平安,必在基督耶穌裡保守你們的心懷意念。願我們可以用心活出耶穌信徒當有的彼此和好、常常喜樂、不住禱告、心存溫柔。
  • 讓我們如飢似渴地追求、學習、瞭解聖經和掌握屬天的智慧。因爲“這律法書不可離開你的口,總要晝夜思想,好使你謹守遵行這書上所寫的一切話。如此,你的道路就可以亨通,凡事順利(約書亞記1:8)。”
  • 讓我們做光明之子喜愛與人爲善、符合神的標準、堅守聖經中的真理,而不是照著世界的標準生活。神說:”你這睡著的人,當醒過來,從死裡復活,基督就要光照你了!(以弗所書5:8-14)”
  • 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,像祂那樣常常從喧鬧中安靜下來向我們的父神禱告,讓天父的心意調整我們的生活,用屬天的力量更新我們的生命,祈求神賜給我們勇氣做個順服的人。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(路加福音5:16);你禱告的時候,要進你的內屋,關上門,禱告你在暗中的父,你父在暗中察看,必然報答你(馬太福音6:6)。我們被召就是要在任何情況下,滿心愛意和盼望,常常禱告,不是為己,而是爲了他人,求天父按照他的旨意回應我們的祈求。


思考:讓我們注目於天父上帝的威嚴和大能,他創造萬物、從前一直看顧我們,現在仍然與我們同在,並將持續愛我們,直到將來我們進入天國。你們若愛我,就必遵守我的命令。“我要求父,父就另外賜給你們一位保惠師[b],叫他永遠與你們同在,(約翰福音14:15-16)”    這個應許提醒我們上帝以聖靈保惠師的身份與我們在一起,幫助我們度過今生可能遭遇的各樣處境。
