Subject: “The Sheep Hear His Voice”
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for speaking to us in a voice that we can easily recognize as the Shepherd of our souls. Moreover, thank you, Lord, for knowing us as a true friend. Indeed, you are a true friend, who always listens to us when we cry out to you. Without your voice to lead and guide us, we would truly be lost in a savage and confusing world that almost always seeks to do us harm. As you know, Oh Lord, the world is growing more lawless every day with many different voices trying to lead your people in one direction and then another. We praise you for speaking to us in that still small voice that warms our hearts and brings tears of great joy to our eyes, that you have not left us alone, but gently reminding us that you have been with us all along. We pray that all of your beloved children will learn how to recognize your voice so that they can just as easily reject the voice of the wolf, often dressed in sheep’s clothing. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27).
PRAYERS FOR THE LAST WEEK, IN CASE YOU MISSED ONE
Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 6/28/2022
Subject: “No Longer Friends of the World”
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Jesus, for opening our eyes to see the great fascination that people have with the world. They lust after every word spoken, every argument, every misdeed from the past, and every commentator proclaiming their position on the matter. But no one is listening to you, our God. They have become friends with the world and no matter how many times they try to quit listening and participating in the world through fake news and social media, they always come back because they cannot stand the silence. Yet, we know we must have total silence before we can hear your still small voice. Only by hearing your voice and following your will can we say that we are friends with you, our God. Help your children who are called by your Name not to fear the silence. We pray that they will only long to be friends with you, our God, and those whom you bring into the fellowship of believers that we can reach out and touch, believing that your Spirit dwells within them, so we can be mutually encouraged. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” (James 4:4).

Subject: “Overcoming Anxiety and Stress”
Good morning Heavenly Father. Although this instruction about overcoming anxiety seems rather old and even out of date, it’s not! We live in a much faster-paced world with social media causing us to assimilate a tremendous amount of information daily, yet your instructions still work for overcoming anxiety. We also assimilate vast amounts of information on a daily basis from the news media and a never-ending parade of movies or videos causing a great deal of stress, yet your beautiful instructions still work on overcoming stress. The list could go on from computers to cellphones, and from driving on busy freeways to maintaining our busy schedules, but your wonderful plan for overcoming stress still works. We pray that your beloved children will trust you in this matter, without turning to drugs and the world’s counsel for help, instead, lead them, dear Lord, to take time for prayer throughout the day making their request to you alone being thankful in all things. We pray that they will understand that we simply cannot be anxious while we are quietly in the Spirit during prayer and meditation, for indeed Lord you are near. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6, ESV).

Subject: “Satan Has Blinded the World”
Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, we have many memories of trying to convince the fallen world of the absolute beauty of the glorious gospel of Christ. We tried desperately to explain how their lives would completely change bringing forth great joy and a peace that truly defies understanding. We tried to convince them that their transformation in Christ would allow them to see and experience a bountiful life free from the many emotional and psychological problems plaguing fallen humanity. Yet, we finally realized that Satan, the god of this world had blinded them, causing them to actually hate the gospel of Christ and even those who freely share it. As darkness covers our land where many more are completely blinded to your glorious gospel as they do the most horrific things like killing people in churches and embracing every manner of wickedness as they march in the streets for abortion rights, we pray that all of your beloved children will not fight back as the world. We pray that they will let the light of your glorious gospel shine that much brighter. Please, Lord, strengthen your beloved children during these dark days. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” (II Corinthians 4:4).

Subject: “True Peace in a Divided World”
Good morning Heavenly Father. Although the world can bring forth a cessation of hostilities, it has no power to bring forth true peace in the hearts and minds of the people. Although the world can promise peace from the ravages of anxiety, depression, and hundreds of other psychological problems by administering their counsel and drugs, it cannot bring true peace to the hearts and minds of the people. Although all the other world religions can promise peace with their god through rigorous discipline and obedience to their laws, it cannot bring true peace to the hearts and minds of the people. We thank you Lord that you have given your beloved children true inner peace from every psychological problem, from the constant temptations from the old sin nature, and most importantly a lasting peace with our loving Father in Heaven. Through every suffering and hostile force brought against us, we have an inner peace that the world doesn’t understand. Thank you for your beautiful peace that gives us the assurance that you will always work things out for our best, delivering us from anxiety and fear. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

Subject: “Schoolhouse of Prayer”
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for being our true teacher by giving us life-changing lessons to make us who we are today. We have learned what other great scholars have said about you and your wonderful teachings, over the course of many years. We have even looked at the original languages of the Bible and studied hard to understand its true meaning. We have also spent many years practicing our public speaking and the fine art of listening for becoming an effective counselor. However, all these, pale in comparison to sitting in the schoolroom of the indwelling Spirit allowing You to teach us every moment of every day. Therein, is our true boldness to speak clearly and effectively to others in your Name. We thank you, Lord, that this teaching through the indwelling Spirit is available to all your beloved children if they would only take time to listen, to really listen. We pray that your children would take the time from their busy schedules to spend the daily hours necessary in prayer and meditation to learn how to listen to you in the schoolhouse of prayer. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13).

Subject: “God Holds Everything Together”
Good morning Heavenly Father. As we are reminded of the distant thunder growing louder and louder and the violent storm appear to pop up out of nowhere, we are reminded once again how small we are in a vast and very powerful universe. As the fallen world shakes their hand at you believing that they have great power, they are blind to the fact that you hold everything together. All their cosmological theories about the universe’s creation and its eventual demise are foolishness when they remove you as the constant who holds everything together from the beginning until you decide to bring it to an end; especially when they also deny that you created everything that exists both visible and invisible. We, as your beloved children, humble ourselves beneath your mighty hand trusting in you alone to protect us from all that is coming upon the world, keeping us from the many dangers of a violent universe. We pray that you will strengthen the faith of your children to trust in you alone during these dark and dangerous days. Remind us to glorify you in the midst of the storm. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:16-17).

Subject: “Pressing on to Perfection”
Good morning Heavenly Father. We have noticed as of late, Oh Lord, that there have been some very vicious attacks against the Christian faith. Not only do they personally attack you, but they also attack what they see as just simply blind faith willing to follow anyone who supports our beliefs. Although this could be the new culture war that will lead us into persecution, we pray that we as your beloved children will prove the world wrong that our faith is not blind. It’s not blind because we have a foreseeable goal that we constantly aim for as we continually put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ. We are constantly in the school of “hard knocks” learning as we go by identifying those things that stunt our spiritual growth and opening our eyes to anyone or anything that would pull us off course. We pray that you will help us to press on to make perfection our goal, if for no other reason than, you made us your own. Thank you, for choosing us since the foundations of the world. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own” (Philippians 3:12).
