Prayers: August 28, 2022

Cast your cares on the Lord    and he will sustain you… (Psalm 55:22)

  • Thank you Lord, for putting people in our path just when we need them.
  • Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. (Psalm 139:23–24).  Pull the weeds of sin from our hearts.
  • Lord, comfort us with your goodness.
  • Pray for our children returning to school – for safety, conditions promoting a good learning environment and a desire in our students to want to know more.
  • Pray for young people going off to college – for those we send from our own families and for those who come from overseas to study.  May they find Christian support and witness in their temporary campus homes to help them in facing the world’s distractions.
  • Pray that we may take time to relax and hear from our Father in heaven.
  • Pray for our communities – that we may make the effort to know one another and practice self-control when we disagree.
  • Pray for fall planning at our church as we return from summer vacation.
  • Pray for those who are thinking about baptism and church membership.
  • We pray for our church family – for those dealing with health and mobility issues; for those who are homebound, for those with job and financial worries; for those in broken relationships. May they be encouraged by Matthew 6:33 knowing God cares for them: “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”

詩篇五十五章 二十二節

  • 感謝主,在我們需要他人的時候,就讓他們走在我們的路途上。
  • 神啊,求你鑒察我,知道我的心思;試煉我,知道我的意念。看在我裡面有什麼惡行沒有,引導我走永生的道路。(詩篇13923-24)。從我們心中拔除罪惡的雜草。
  • 主啊,用你的恩慈安慰我們。
  • 為我們的孩子重返學校祈禱——為安全、為促進良好學習環境的條件以及為學生想學習更多的意慾祈禱。
  • 為即將上大學的年輕人禱告——為我們自己家庭的,和那些從海外來學習的禱告。願他們在那臨時校園之家中找到基督徒的支持和見證,以幫助他們面對世界的干擾。
  • 祈求我們能花時間放鬆,聆聽天父的聲音。
  • 為我們的社區禱告——當我們意見不一時,我們可以努力相互了解並練習節制。
  • 就我們暑假後回來,為教會的秋季計劃禱告。
  • 為那些正在考慮洗禮和加入教會的人禱告。
  • 為我們的教會大家庭祈禱——為那些健康和行動有問題的人、困在家裡的人、受工作和財務問題困擾的人、有關係破裂的人祈禱。願他們從馬太福音6:33中受到鼓舞,因為他們知道上帝關心他們:“你們要先求他的國和他的義,這些東西都要加給你們了。”
