Prayers: September 18, 2022

Sep 16, 2022   •  

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

  • Thank you Lord, that You are always present to guide, provide for, and protect us. There’s no place where we are outside Your providential presence and care (Psalm 139:7-12).
  • Let every created thing give praise to the Lord, for He issued his command, and we came into being. Psalm 148
  • Inspire the nation to be a nation under God seeking to glorify, honor and praise You.
  • Pray for our community to work together to address the challenges of homelessness, violence, trash and illegal activities. Pray for our neighbors who do not yet know Jesus for we were once in their shoes, lost without an eternity.
  • Pray for those who are engaging in baptism and membership classes, the beginning of a new life in relationship with our Savior. Pray that the Holy Spirit will convict those who know about the triune God but have not given their heart in faith.
  • Pray for missionary workers who serve in places without as much access to vaccines and treatment for COVID as we have in the US.
  • Pray that our Bible study and fellowship groups will provide a positive environment where disciples are grown.
  • Pray for the ability to change – sometimes when circumstances do not change, we instead find ourselves changing. We grow in the face of adversity and begin to see suffering from a more Christlike perspective. Thank God for the bad days, and the good days, knowing that there is a season for both. As we pray for better days, let us know those better days ahead begin today because Jesus is with us.
  • Pray for our children to know that God is with them always, teaching and loving them in every circumstance.
  • 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. Pray that they will experience the promise of rest in Jesus. “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28.

  “你要把你的重擔卸給耶和華,祂必撫養你…。詩篇五十五章 二十二節

  • 感謝主,你總是常與我們同在,引導、供應和保護我們。我們不會在您旨意的眷顧和關懷之外(詩篇139:7-12)。
  • 願一切受造之物都讚美耶和華的名,因他一吩咐便都造成。詩篇148
  • 祈求主激勵這個國家成為一個在上帝之下尋求榮耀、尊重和讚美你的國家。
  • 祈求我們的社區共同努力應對無家可歸、暴力、垃圾棄置和非法活動的挑戰。為我們還不認識耶穌的鄰居祈禱,因為我們曾經站在他們的處地,迷失了不知永生。
  • 為那些參加洗禮和會員班的人禱告,是他們與我們的救主是新生活的開始。那些知道三一神但仍然沒有在信仰上獻出自己的心的人,祈求聖靈使他們知罪。
  • 為在沒有像我們在美國那樣容易獲得新冠病疫苗和治療的地方侍奉的傳教士禱告。
  • 祈求我們的查經和團契小組能為門徒的成長提供一個積極的環境。
  • 為改變的能力禱告——有時當環境沒有改變時,我們反而發現自己在改變。我們在逆境中成長,並開始從更像基督的角度看待苦難。感謝神給了壞的日子和好的日子,知道兩者都有它的時候。當我們祈求更美好的日子時,讓我們知道那些美好的日子是從今天開始,因為主耶穌與我們同在。
  • 祈求我們的孩子知道主一直與他們同在,在任何情況下都在教導和愛他們。
  • 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。禱告他們會經歷在耶穌裡安息的應許。“凡勞苦擔重擔的人,可以到我這裡來,我就使你們得安息。”馬太福音11:28。
