Prayers: May 2, 2021

May 01, 2021   •  



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

  • Thank you, Lord, for the beauty of a spring day.
  • Thank you, Lord, for the Holy Spirit helping me to do the impossible – break bad habits.
  • Thank you, Lord, that you are great and mighty in power; that your understanding has no limit. Psalm 147:5
  • Thank you, Lord, for forgiving my sins and for Your assurance that no one is too sinful to be forgiven. Nehemiah 9:17
  • Thank you, Lord, for being more than enough to help me handle the challenges I will face today.


Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • For strength and positive thoughts for those with health issues
  • For patience and trust as God leads us through the coronavirus pandemic
  • For the people served by our missionaries in countries where hope and the love of Jesus are desperately needed – middle East, Myanmar, China
  • For those mourning the loss of loved ones
  • For our children to learn from our example of trust in the Lord, compassion for our neighbors, and choosing what is right is right in the Lord’s eyes rather than the ways of the world
  • For those who are weary from restrictions and suffering; help them to talk over their frustrations with God
  • To experience the love of Jesus through us


Pray for CCC:

  • That even in the hardest seasons, we know we always have a reason to worship God who is steadfast and offers enduring love
  • That we will be a church always working for God’s glory
  • That we strive to love and work alongside those who are enemies, even those who disagree with us
  • That we have the attitude of good stewards of what God gives us – supporting His kingdom work joyfully, voluntarily, and generously. 2 Corinthians 8 and 9
  • To remember the basis for our ministry work: ““This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.” John 6:29 NLT
  • To prepare to worship in person again – to step out in faith with energy and resolve for this opportunity to do a new thing in worship, discipleship, and fellowship.
  • For joy in knowing that nothing can separate us from God’s love: Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.  No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39


To Think About: Easter Sunday has passed but the resurrection of Jesus provides us hope every day on which to build our faith.  And if the Spirit of God, who raised up Jesus from the dead, lives in you, he will make your dying bodies live again after you die, by means of this same Holy Spirit living within you.  Romans   8:11 TLB  The Holy Spirit in us provides the means that we will live again after our earthly bodies perish.






  • 為春日美景感謝神!
  • 感謝主讓聖靈幫助我改掉壞習慣,做了我自己不能做到的事!
  • 感謝您,我的主!因“我們的主為大,最有能力,他的智慧無法測度。( 詩篇147:5)”
  • 感謝主“樂意饒恕人,有恩典,有憐憫,不輕易發怒,有豐盛慈愛的神,並不丟棄他們。(尼希米紀9:17)”
  • 感謝主賜給我的能力遠超過我每日要應對的挑戰。



  • 為有健康問題的弟兄姊妹禱告,願意他們祈求從神而來的力量,用積極正面的態度尋求醫治。
  • 讓我們有耐心、信靠神帶領我們走過這場流行病。
  • 為我們的宣教士服侍的中東、緬甸和中國的人民禱告,盼望這些國家的人們極其渴慕來自耶穌的盼望和慈愛。
  • 為失去摯愛親朋的人禱告。
  • 求主幫助我們可以成爲孩子們在信仰上的樣板:信靠神、愛鄰舍、選擇神眼中看爲正的事情而不是隨從這個世界的方式。
  • 為疲於各種限制和磨難的人禱告,幫助他們戰勝自己對神的沮喪。
  • 願我們經歷耶穌的愛。




  • 願我們即使在最艱難的時候,始終都知道有個理由來敬拜立定不變、永久慈愛的神!
  • 願我們是榮耀神的教會。
  • 讓我們努力去關愛仇敵,以及意見不同的人,也能與他們一起為共同的目標同心協力。
  • 讓我們成爲神賜給我們的財富和才幹的好管家——慷慨樂意、滿心歡喜地支持神國事工。(哥林多後書第8章和第9章)
  • 要記住我們在事工中事奉的基礎:“信神所差來的,這就是做神的工。(約翰福音6:29)。”
  • 為我們準備再次回到教堂敬拜禱告——讓我們充滿能力、邁出信心的脚步,抓住機會在敬拜、門徒訓練和團契方面有嶄新的成就。
  • 願我們喜樂地知道:“因為我深信:無論是死,是生,是天使,是掌權的,是有能的,是現在的事,是將來的事,是高處的,是低處的,是別的受造之物,都不能叫我們與神的愛隔絕;這愛是在我們的主基督耶穌裡的(羅馬書8:38-39)。”



思考:復活節雖過去,但復活的耶穌為我們信心的建立提供了每日的盼望。羅馬書8章第11說:“然而叫耶穌從死裡復活者的靈若住在你們心裡,那叫基督耶穌從死裡復活的,也必藉著住在你們心裡的聖靈,使你們必死的身體又活過來。”  靠著住在我們裡面的同一位聖靈,我們也必將死裡復活。
