Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 3/24/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, how marvelous are your ways. When our strength is all dried up and we feel we just can’t do anymore, then we see your greatest miracle. For when we turn our labor over to you then we see you working powerfully in and through us. Praise God! At times we feel that we are working well beyond our own ability and doing things that absolutely amaze us. We admit that strength and power must come directly from you. Hallelujah. Of course, the real miracle is realized when we learn how to completely let go and trust you to work through us. Help us not to run ahead of you or lag behind but keep in step with the indwelling Spirit for indeed it is your work that you have called us to. A marvelous work indeed. Help us to step out on faith when you lead, knowing that the strength and the ability will both come from you to accomplish the task. If necessary, please remind us to always give you all the credit and all the glory. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13).

PRAY FOR OPEN EYES

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 3/20/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. We have heard so many say, they have a sincere desire to walk closer to the You and experience all that You have to offer. They may even attend a house of worship and read their Bibles from time to time, but something is missing. They simply can’t make it, as they drift back and forth into the world. Oh, how we pray for these dear souls to understand their problem, to have their eyes fully opened to why they can’t seem to experience the depths of their Christianity, and the beauty of their new life in Christ. To put it simply, they cannot give up their lust for Hollywood’s portrayal of good versus evil. Truth be known it’s not the quasi portrayal of good but the horrendous enactment of evil that keeps their minds polluted and unable to receive the engrafted Word, which is able to save their souls. Step by step their minds are led again and again into the depth of evil. We pray, Oh Lord that you open their eyes to their self-imposed bondage that often leads to depression. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls” (James 1:21).

THE PATH TO PERFECTION

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 3/14/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for showing us the path to perfection, a path that’s impossible for fallen humanity, but made possible for your beloved children. We know that this is a path that goes against human nature that has learned well how to hate those who hate us, to curse those who curse us, and to despitefully use those who use us. Along with all this comes great emotional and psychological pain as fallen humanity slips deeper into the pit of immorality and self-destruction. Thank you for showing us a better way that takes the sword from our hand and brings forth an incredible inner peace filled with joy. We pray that you will lead all of your children to accept this truth of a better way and to love their enemies by blessing them when cursed; to do good to them that hate us; to pray for those who despitefully use us and persecute us. We pray that you will lead them to do all these things with a sincere desire to unselfishly meet their needs without self-righteously flagging in zeal. We pray this in the most holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you” (Matthew 5:44).

STAND FIRM BY DEFENDING THE FAITH

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/17/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Help all of your beloved children to meditate long and hard on Scripture especially in a day when our faith in you is being ignored, trampled on, and vilified. We all need wisdom in confronting evil in our day. We admit sharing memes among ourselves on social media accomplishes little. Just speaking out boldly on their wicked and vile behavior will only stir up their anger against us, thus seeing little change. So, we pray earnestly not only for our self but for every believer in Christ to know how to make a good defense of the gospel and our reasons for our unwillingness to participate in their evil activities or future plans. Lead us to speak boldly and plainly about the great benefits awarded to us by you and our willingness to follow your righteous laws not only for us individually but for all our young children that’s still learning the ways of righteousness. Let our defense break down barriers and speak to their hearts about the good news of our salvation. Let us also do this in our actions and behavior. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Ephesians 5:11).

PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY THAT ALL EVIL IS EXPOSED

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/14/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Holy righteous Father we desire wisdom to understand how to react when the evil powers have taken most of the congressional leadership of this country captive to do its will. We can no longer sleep or ignore the consequences of their behavior. They are passing laws so complex that it takes thousands of pages to describe the new statues and mandates of the law. So, essentially, we have no real understanding of what’s being passed into law. We pray that you will bring everything to light. Expose their hidden agenda and what they do in secret behind closed doors so that we can stand against its immorality and its destructive nature for our country. We pray also that you continue to expose what they are teaching our children in public and higher education so that your children called by your name can come out from among them. We pray also for those who claim to be Christian but still speak negatively and plot behind closed doors as if God cannot see. We are confident that in time everything will be exposed. We pray this in the most holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light” (Ephesians 5:12-13).

IT’S TIME TO FIGHT BACK

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/8/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Do we give up or do we fight back? These are the words that haunt me this morning as I enter my prayer closet. Many have looked upon the world in horror and seen the strength of Satan bewitching the children through manifold means and have simply given up. From YouTube videos to Social Media they have witnessed the children being captured by the evil of our age. They cry out in desperation asking the Lord to rapture His Church before things get too bad. On the other hand, some of us have decided to fight back. We know ultimately, we cannot change the direction of the entire world, but we can and should change the direction of our family and especially for those who call upon the Name of the Lord. It’s time we put our foot down and say, “enough is enough.” It’s time to redeem our children from the clutches of evil. We pray that you will open the eyes of the parents, the grandparents, and the Pastors to see what they need to do and then give them the strength and courage to do it. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).

PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR OUR CHILDREN

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/31/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Well, we are finally making it into our prayer closet today after an intense struggle with allergies this morning. We have also struggled greatly in the Spirit for our children and grandchildren, praying that you help them to stay strong and fight the good fight against Satan who wants to destroy their lives bringing them down to the pit of despair. Teach them, Oh Lord, how to keep in step with the Spirit by filling their minds with righteous thoughts that follow your will on earth as it is in heaven. Remind them, Oh Lord, that you see everything and will hold them accountable for what they do in secret. For indeed we know that God is not mocked, and we all reap what we sow. We sincerely pray that all of your beloved children repent today and start walking in righteousness for the time is short. We see the many threats on the horizon with a giant asteroid and another solar flare headed to earth tomorrow along with a continued threat of nuclear war. We all need to repent and walk in righteousness. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).

WE CONTINUE IN PRAYER FOR THE DISCERNMENT OF THINGS TO COME

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/21/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for teaching us that you will not come back until we see the great falling away and the REVEALING of the man of lawlessness or the beast in the Book of Revelation toward the end of the Great Tribulation. We are already seeing the falling away that’s breaking our hearts. Many people are being deceived and have learned the ways of the world. They have grown lazy, argumentative, manipulative, and have become fault finders. Many no longer work but rely on their government assistance programs. Their days are consumed by watching endless YouTube videos, television, or surfing the Social Media sites. Help us dear Lord to stand firm and be patient with everyone, especially to those who are of the household of faith. We pray that you help us to stand firm against those who are leading your children astray through lying deception and their false theology. Give us great power and discernment in these last days to properly identify the son of perdition or the man of lawlessness when he takes his leadership role in the world. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” (II Thessalonians 2:3).

PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY THAT ALL PEOPLE WILL COME TO THE TRUTH

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/20/2019

Good morning Heavenly Father. We have noticed Lord that not everyone has ears to hear, especially in these last days. Perhaps the biggest problem is that most people don’t really want to change. It’s much too difficult for them. We have found this especially difficult when people have learned things about eschatology or teachings about the last days. We have discovered that many people, especially in the West, have gotten really comfortable with things that they have learned and are quite unwilling to change even if they hear a voice from heaven or from another believer that has a completely different way of looking at things about your Second Coming. We find it very interesting when the modern way, especially in the West, is relatively new in comparison to the whole of Church history. In fact, the so-called SECRET rapture a little more than 100 years old, whereas the visible rapture at the end of the Great Tribulation dates back to the 1st Century. Thank you Lord that the Bible says, “Every eye shall see.” We pray that you give ALL of your beloved children ears to hear. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“He that hath ears to hear, let him hear” (Matthew 11:15).

PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY AND WEEP FOR THE CHILDREN

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 11/14/2018

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for our emotions that can express the feelings of our heart. We tend to weep more deeply and rejoice more exuberantly since you have changed our hearts. We believe that our emotions are now a reflection of your great tenderness and sympathy; of your great joy and jubilation that you feel for your beloved children. The same heart that was in your beloved Son who wept over Jerusalem and the sudden death of a close friend now abides in us through the indwelling Spirit. We now understand the depth of our emotions as believers in Christ and should not fear what you have given us, even if the unbelieving world rejects, mocks, or attempts to cure it. We are what we are by the grace of God. Our hearts cry out in great anguish and the deepest agony for the loss of our children and their children to the evil professors who have led them astray. The devil has blinded them of our history and bringing them down the same path of death and destruction. We call on all of God’s children to weep together concerning this tragedy. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep” (Romans 12:15).

PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THE NATION OF ISRAEL

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 11/13/2018

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, teach us how to pray. We pray for the nation of Israel and the other people round about. We know the people of Gaza feel like they are in a cage and have been led by their radical leaders to hate the Jew. Help all their people to see and understand that they have brought this on themselves. If they acted more humane and stopped their aggressiveness, then we believe that Israel would reciprocate and give them more freedom and even assistance for all their people. Until they come to their senses, we humbly pray for your people, the nation of Israel. Although not all have accepted your beloved Son Jesus Christ, we know that many have. Let that be the salt, the preservative of the beautiful land, enough to receive your mercy, divine grace, and protection. We pray for all of your beloved children in the area to work with the nation’s leaders to develop a peace plan that recognizes Israel’s sovereignty and right to exist. For now please stop the rockets and protect all the people in Israel. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed” (Genesis 12:2-3).
