Yes, God Answers Prayer (By Paula Disbrow)
Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/21/2024
Subject: “Submit Yourself to One Another in the Fear of the Lord”
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for giving us godly parents and grandparents that have taught us so many lessons about having respect for our elders along with showing honor for our political and spiritual leaders. We are deeply saddened that the world has drifted away from this mutual respect, where just reading the headlines, we are appalled. Almost every headline or news story is about bashing the other person in all manner of disgusting and demeaning rhetoric. How can all this infighting be considered news? Thank you, Lord, for teaching us that even if we disagree with their opinions, we still must honor their position by submitting to them in the fear of God. Thank you for teaching us that we can offer our opposing opinions without bashing the other person by disrespecting them from interrupting to talking over them as we have witnessed in every area of society. Let us not take our lessons from the world in submitting ourselves one to one another but lead all of your beloved children to demonstrate honor and mutual respect for everyone even if we disagree with them. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God” (Ephesians 5:21).
PRAYERS FOR THE LAST WEEK, IN CASE YOU MISSED ONE
Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/20/2024
Subject: “We Will Arise!”
Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, we have such a burden for your Church for many have grown melancholy in their faith and have become quite content to remain comfortable in their spiritual stagnation. They have little interest in becoming mature Christians and experiencing the many pains that come from true spiritual growth, by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. They are quite content to wear proudly their Christian label when other Christians are present, yet very happy to remove it when among the heathen in the world. We pray, Oh Lord, that you will sound the trumpets of Heaven to awaken them from their sleep. We pray that they will arise and allow your marvelous light to shine ever so brightly upon them, so that they will take their place in the ranks of the Christian soldiers in our battle against evil. We pray that your light from heaven will cause them to remember the great joy that they once experienced when you first called them from the darkness of this evil world into the bright light of your glory. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light” (Ephesians 5:14).

Subject: “We Will Not Speak Empty Words”
Good morning Heavenly Father. If we speak all day long and say nothing about the growing immorality in the church, then our words are empty, and they will deceive your children. If we only choose the popular sins to speak on and ignore all the rest, then our words are empty and will deceive your children. We pray, Oh Lord, that we will speak plainly and openly about the many sins of your children so that they will understand why they are having so many problems as if something strange were happening to them. Let them recognize their sins of lust, lying, dishonesty, greed, avarice, gluttony, anger, and impure thoughts so that they will know that you have not winked at their sins. Let them realize that these strange things happening to them may be your righteous wrath. “For because of these things, the wrath of God comes upon them, the sons of disobedience.” We pray that all of your beloved children will not judge or be harsh with others but rather let them rebuke them in love leading them to repentance and the refreshing waters of your forgiveness. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience” (Ephesians 5:6, ESV).

Subject: “We Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace”
Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray, Oh Lord, that you would shine your bright light of holiness upon your wayward church leading them to draw close to you during these uncertain times. When most people’s minds are filled with fear and uncertainty about the latest drums of an world war or with the possibility of a failing economy, we pray that they will seek you in the Spirit. Dear Lord, please lead all your beloved children to empty their minds of worry and anxious thoughts helping them to find peace and solitude in their souls. We pray that you will allow them to hear the still small voice of the indwelling Spirit giving them your beautiful words of encouragement that will sound like music to their ears. We are confident that when we come into your presence, we will all obtain mercy, and find grace sufficient in our time of need as the entire world braces for a nuclear war. We trust that you will be merciful to your children who have stumbled and extend your un-merited favor to those who truly repent and humbly confess their transgressions to you. We pray this boldly in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).

Subject: “Restore Us to the Joy of Our Salvation”
Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh, how we remember the great joy of our salvation. This joy in the Lord is so awesome it’s difficult to put into words. It is like enjoying heavenly bliss upon the earth at a moment in time when everything around us seems to stop while we are enveloped with your magnificent love. We have discovered, dear Lord, that this joy gives us a willingness to do your work with gladness in our hearts. This amazing joy drives us to do what we thought was quite impossible. We pray today that you will restore this joy to all your beloved children by showing them that their unconfessed sin and their unwillingness to follow your commands have robbed them of this amazing joy in the Lord, the joy of their salvation. It has also caused them to be stagnant in their spiritual growth and unwilling to follow you in your work here upon the earth. Lead them to confess and repent of all their sins, even the hidden ones of the heart, so that you can restore them to the absolute joy of their salvation. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit” (Psalms 51:12, ESV).

Subject: “Praying That Your Disciples Bear Much Fruit”
Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray that all we say and do will truly glorify you. So, we pray that we always produce lots of Spiritual fruit proving that we are indeed your disciples. Let us not follow lukewarm Christianity that has grown stagnant in their faith, showing no Spiritual growth, and producing no spiritual fruit. To do so brings no glory to you no matter how many times we repeat the phrase, “all glory to God.” On the other hand, we pray that all your beloved children are witnessing their own Spiritual growth by becoming more like you every day. We pray that they are becoming stronger in their faith by learning to trust you alone for all their many problems in life. We pray that their conversation with others is always full of blessings, edifying, and building them up in Christian love. We pray that they will not always complain publicly about their many problems through veiled prayer requests or always finding fault with others. We pray that they grow up in Christ so that they can bear much fruit and truly glorify you. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples” (John 15:8).

Subject: “Lead Us To Confess Our Sins”
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Father, for the indwelling Spirit that convicts us when we fall short of your mark or when we fall short of the place where we need to be in our spiritual growth. We have discovered that we cannot compare ourselves with the righteousness or the unrighteousness of our neighbors, but we should only compare ourselves to your righteous standard. When we do, then we must admit that we fall short of your very high standards. However, we rejoice believing that the blood of Jesus Christ has made us righteous before you, allowing us to stand before you, and our confession cleanses us from all unrighteousness when we fall short. We pray that all your beloved children will be quick to confess all their sins through godly sorrow and repentance. Let them not turn a deaf ear to the conviction of the indwelling Spirit. How refreshing it is, what joy it is in the Spirit when we receive your loving forgiveness cleansing us from all unrighteousness and putting us back into that glorious relationship with you, our Father. Praise God! We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (I John 1:9).

Subject: “You Are Our Refuge”
Good morning Heavenly Father. We feel, Oh Lord, the greatest attack on our faith today is the powers of darkness that are causing your people to put their trust in so many different things, which is always diluting their trust in you alone. Many in our day turn to their doctors, counselors, and the government in their time of trouble putting their trust in them to solve their problems. Teach your beloved children, Oh LORD, to pour out their hearts before you alone, allowing them to see that you have the solution to all of their problems. We have become witnesses during our long pilgrimage of your unfailing love as you have personally delivered us from every emotional and psychological problem known to man. You have given us wisdom to overcome the most difficult problems in life through your anointed Word in the Bible brought alive by the indwelling Spirit. Indeed, our God is a refuge for us in the time of trouble when fallen man is still trying to figure it out. We praise you every day for always being there for us. You are our refuge! We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah” (Psalms 62:8).
