Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/18/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. As the entire world suffers greatly under the rising heat index with the sun actually scorching people, we hear no one calling the world to repentance. As we see more and more sea life perish and wash upon the beaches of the world, we hear no one calling the world to repentance. As the air becomes so smoggy and toxic in many of the great cities around the world causing an untold number of deaths, we hear no one calling the world to repentance. As flooding becomes paramount in many of our cities around the world causing death and destruction, we hear no one calling the world to repentance. Cutting our carbon emissions, recycling our garbage, along with many other initiatives may slow it down but the only thing that will stop humanity from slipping deeper and deeper into the inevitable consequences of their sin is repentance. We pray that the world will repent from following all manner of evil. We pray that they will repent from their rejection of the only One true God, the Father of Jesus Christ. We pray this the most Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost” (Acts 2:38).

PRAYERS FOR THE LAST WEEK,  IN CASE YOU MISSED ONE

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/17/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray, Oh LORD, that we will become more like your divine Son, Jesus Christ, every day. We know that our old nature was trained even as a child to judge a person by their outward appearance. We were select with our friends and later with our romantic relationships based upon the outward appearances with the hope that their heart would match what we were originally attracted to. Thank you, Lord, for guiding us to look beyond the outward beauty to the heart of another individual in order to make a righteous judgment in our relationships. Now we find it even more difficult, but not impossible, to look beyond a select photo on social media in an attempt to look upon their heart through their commenting and their sharing of their own writings, images, and the sharing of articles written by others. Unable to read their body language or see their most recent photograph has made it difficult, but not impossible, as you have miraculously guided us through your Spirit to gaze upon their hearts observing their many struggles and successes, but mainly their true relationship with you. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.” (I Samuel 16:7)

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/16/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Our hearts are greatly burdened today when we see what is going on in our corner of the world, specifically in our once great nation that opened its arms to every race and creed; to a nation that embraced those who were escaping every form of religious persecution. Through many faults, great struggles, and a civil war a new nation was built to become a light to the world. Through our great missionary effort, we believed that you, our one true God, loved the entire world and we set about to prove it. Oh Lord, now our once great nation has rejected your laws and have called illegal, legal; they have called our rebuke to the lawless to repent or leave, they have called racist. We are deeply grieved that the quest for lawlessness, not racism, is really dividing our country preparing it for the coming Antichrist. We pray that you, Oh Lord, will expose all the lawlessness on both sides and unite this country under the banner of your magnificent love for all who truly repent and humble themselves at the foot of the Cross for we know you hate all lawlessness. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/15/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray for all of your beloved children this morning. Many of them have openly displayed their impulsiveness by rushing ahead, making their own decisions, and building new relationships. We know that most often this is done out of loneliness and fear. Yet, it is you, Oh Lord that bids us to wait upon you before rushing ahead on our own. It is you that will renew our strength in a way we never thought possible. It is you that will give us the joys of our heart, if we just wait upon you. We pray that your children, those called by your Name, will quite themselves before you and wait to receive a word from you through indwelling Spirit. Teach us to always wait and listen first before striking out on our own to solve our own problems. We have discovered that when we do wait upon you to speak and to act it removes the blindfold from our eyes and we see the great miracle of endless possibilities. It’s as if we have mounted up with wings as eagles. Hallelujah! We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/14/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. As self-righteous and prideful men work ever so hard to build their utopia, we as your beloved children look beyond our present reality to a new home filled with agape love and true righteousness. We pray that all of our energy and aspirations will be directed to this coming reality and not consumed with trying to fix what’s broken by whitewashing the unrighteousness of sinful men through the adoption of acceptance and tolerance. We pray that we, your beloved children, will prepare for the promise of new heavens and a new earth by walking in righteousness every hour of every day. We pray that you will give us strength and wisdom to work every day to strengthen the righteousness of others by teaching them how to walk closer to you, our God. We pray that we can teach them to do this in total dependence, trusting in you alone to complete the process of making us, transforming us, into beautiful new creations. Lead us to be consumed with this work alone as we eagerly look forward to new heavens and a new earth. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (II Peter 3:12-13).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/13/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, when we look out upon the world and especially in our own country, we see that the harvest truly is plenteous. We see the very great need in humanity for comfort, healing, direction, and most of all salvation. The emotional and psychological problems are greater perhaps than at any other time in the history of the world. The fear of impending doom from all the catastrophes descending upon the planet is beyond imagination. As lawlessness abounds, fear of being held accountable is also having a devastating effect as they cry out for tolerance. With the increasing destruction of our home, planet earth, many others are suffering tremendous pain and dying needlessly. We pray that you send forth workers to preach the good news through true repentance. We pray that the workers would no longer follow the pattern of this world in just bashing others, but they would spend all their time showing others a better way. We pray that they would convince others that you truly can transform their lives making them into beautiful new creations full of joy and peace. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest” (Matthew 9:37-38).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/12/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for being ever-present with all of your beloved children. As great forest fires rage, cities shake from ever-increasing earthquakes, and whole communities are flooded, you are here with us to comfort our hearts. As the seers and prophets proclaim their doom and gloom you will not allow your true children to be crushed in spirit. Thank you, Father, even when grief is on our doorstep from the loss of a loved one, we know that you will bring us through our grief as we cry out in great agony. We don’t trust anyone but you alone to comfort and restore our crushed spirits. As we walk along life’s path, we take great comfort in knowing that you are always with us and that nothing can separate us from your magnificent love. So, as the world faces its many uncertainties, we pray that all of your beloved children will hold their heads high and not allow the cruelty of this world to pull them down into the cesspool of immorality and the dependence on their counselors of psychobabble. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit” (Psalms 34:18).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/11/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Father, for showing us that no one should be excluded from our prayers. We know that the old sin nature causes us to distance ourselves from others who are caught up in their trespasses or behave in a way that’s contrary to our belief system. So, we pray that you, Oh Lord, would lead us in our prayers for all people knowing that true prayer in the Spirit has great power to move others to repentance. That it also has great power to even move heaven and earth including us to act on their behalf. Forgive us, Lord, if in the past we were too quick to shun the other person or to deny that we even know them when they are in their darkest hour and need help. We have learned from you, Oh Lord, that when we truly pray for others as we ought then we are given eyes to see them in a different light, observing their greatest struggles, and their deepest needs. Furthermore, true prayer in the Spirit will lead us to follow your will in how we should respond to their needs. Help us to make intercession for all men, both good and bad. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men” (I Timothy 2:1).
