Dear Almighty God,
Father in heaven, Yours is the Kingdom, I would like to pray for all Your injured hearts for all those lives who have been touched by tragedy, war, and destruction, whether by accident or a deliberate act. For those who mourn, immerse them in Your love and lead them through this darkness into Your arms. For those who comfort, be in both the words they use and all that’s left unspoken; fill each heart with love. I pray for those who are experiencing the pain of personal loss, for families who are mourning the loss of loved ones. Comfort especially those who have friends and family members missing. Revive Your Church in holiness and help us to serve You with joy. Guide the leaders of all nations, that justice may prevail throughout the world. Let not the needy be forgotten, nor the hope of the poor be taken away. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked, show us Your way.
In all things, You have shown me that I must help the weak and remember the words of You, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Please help me be generous, to open my hands to my brothers, to the needy and to the poor, in Your land, for this will honor You. Help me to not neglect to do good and to share what I have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to You. Let me not only look to my own interests, but also to the interests of others and teach me to do good; to seek justice, to correct oppression; to bring justice to the fatherless and to plead the widow’s cause. Make me an instrument of Your peace, send Your spirit to move in me, be my anchor and shine through me into this world. 1 Samuel 1:11 “O Lord of hosts, if you will indeed look on the affliction of your servant and remember me and not forget your servant”, You have shown great and steadfast love, help me walk in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward You.
Give me an understanding mind and help me to discern between good and evil so that I may help guide Your people back to You. God of all grace, You have given me a Savior, produce in me a faith to live by Him, to make Him all my desire, all my hope, all my glory. May I enter Him as my refuge, build on Him as my foundation, walk in Him as my way, follow Him as my guide, conform to Him as my example, receive his instructions as my prophet, rely on his intercession as my high priest, help me obey Him as my king. May Your dear Son preserve me from this present evil world so that its approval never tempt me, nor its disapproval terrifies, nor its vices defile, nor its errors delude me, make me awake and aware of my surroundings.
Help me find help in every time of need, give me an undivided heart and put a new spirit in me to help lead us to peace, guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus. Let me confess my sins and help others do the same, faithful and hopeful, forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Never leave us; never forsake us, my Lord, for You are our salvation. Help us trust You and to not be afraid, breath Your life in us. In all our ways help us acknowledge You, and make our paths straight.
I choose to rest in You, with faith and positivity. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
