Subject: “Help Us to Remain Pure”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, we truly live in a world full of lawlessness that’s accepted as the new normal. At times we feel as though we are like the frog in the water where the temperature is slightly being increased until it reaches its boiling point and then the frog is dead. Open our eyes, Oh Lord, on how the entire world is turning increasingly lawless to the point that they too will be dead, dead to all truth and righteousness. Step by step most have not noticed the general acceptance of lewd and graphic images streaming daily on the News and Social Media sites. Most have not noticed the continued bashing, slamming, and finding fault with one another causing your beloved children to become nauseous of all the hate. Lead your children to immediately turn their eyes away before the evil images and words that can make an indelible mark upon their minds and hearts. Help us to remain pure in an impure world allowing the light of your holiness to shine ever so brightly through us. Lead us to always walk in your holiness. We pray this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

“Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways” (Psalms 119:37, ESV).

PRAYERS FOR THE LAST WEEK,  IN CASE YOU MISSED ONE

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 6/16/2024

 Subject: “Simple Prayer is All That’s Needed!”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, that you always hear us when we cry out to you. As the two blind men continued to cry out against the wishes of the crowd and even some of your own followers, you stopped to ask, “What will you have me to do for you?” We pray that we will never let the crowd and even our own family keep us from seeking your help to resolve what appears to be an impossible request, no matter how difficult the request. How easy it is to simply cry out in faith believing that you have stopped and heard us. Have you not taught us that’s all we need to do, is make a simple request in faith believing that you hear us? Oh, how many have tried to rob you of your glory by adding things to their request by displaying their own prideful authority and by yelling at the devil to make you listen and obey. What a travesty! We pray that all of your children will just cry out in simple child-like faith, for that is ALL that’s needed. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?” (Matthew 20:32, read the fuller context).

 Subject: “The Path To Greatness”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for demonstrating to us the true path to greatness. It’s truly not found in riches or in positions of authority that typically Lord it over others. On the other hand, you have taught us, it should not be so among your beloved children even if they are in authority. You, Oh Lord, had the power of the entire universe at your disposal but chose not to use it when you were maliciously attacked verbally as you went about doing good. We pray that everyone in authority will learn how to practice this restraint and not use their position of power and authority to hurt others. We pray that they will discover that true greatness is serving others by helping them to overcome their struggles in life and to lift them up when they fall down. Thank you, Lord, for teaching us that becoming chief among others may require us, if necessary, to even lay down our lives for others as you did for us. Help us, Lord, to truly live for others and not for self, at all times. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:26-28).

 Subject: “May The Life of Jesus Be Manifest in Our Body”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, we have been knocked down by the enemy, but not destroyed. As we have worked long and hard these many years to advance the Gospel, we have become acquainted with those many times of great despair and suffering. Although our agony was not even close to what you and the early Apostles had to endure, we still rejoice that we have been counted worthy to suffer in your Name bearing the marks in our body. We have learned all too well that the anguish of mental fatigue caused by unscrupulous people, always blocking our path, is just as powerful as physical blows to our body. We pray that you will use these trials to strengthen our ministry and determination to press on to the goal of helping as many as possible during these last days. Help us to help them to stand firm in the midst of the storm. We pray that no one reading and praying this prayer will see this as a complaint but rather as a boast for the greater privilege of serving others in your Name. We humbly pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body” (II Corinthians 4:10).

Subject: “Let Us Trust in You Exclusively”

 Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray, Oh Lord, that all of your beloved children will experience that perfect peace that comes from you alone, that truly defies understanding. This is the peace that is perfectly calm in the midst of our greatest storms. You have shown us, dear Lord, that people in the midst of their many storms in life typically stay focused on what they really put their trust in to deliver them. In fact, in our world that seems to be falling apart, there are many things to put one’s trust in, from the government, and political action, to the police, and from the medical establishment to the professionals of psychology. This is proven by how much their minds have stayed upon them and how they hang on their every word. This is also witnessed by how much they post on social media. We pray that your children will keep their minds stayed upon you, trusting in you alone to never leave them, for therein is the pathway to perfect peace in the midst of their greatest storms in life. Yes, trust is being dependent on you alone! We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee” (Isaiah 26:3).

 Subject: “Open the Eyes of Your Children”

Good morning Heavenly Father. We have seen the great falling away even among our own families. Our hearts are deeply grieved that they will not recognize their own falling away because they have followed the path of lukewarm Christianity. They will not recognize or admit that they have one foot in the world following its teachings and one foot in the Kingdom attempting to follow your teachings exclusively. We pray that they will recognize that this great falling away opens the door to the Antichrist to lead your children even further away from the truth. We pray that their eyes will be open to the great deception of believing that they can overthrow Satan and build the kingdom, making their world great again, through the political process. We pray that you show them your righteous path of building the Kingdom one person at a time by casting off the hate for the other side, taught by the political elite, and only walking in true love for even their enemies. Oh Lord, teach them again the power of transformation to truly change lives beyond the ineffectiveness of manmade laws. We pray this is the 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).

 Subject: “Help Us to Never Grieve the Holy Spirit”

Good morning Heavenly Father. We thank you, Lord Jesus, for sealing us with the Holy Spirit until the day of redemption. Nothing in this world can remove this seal that has been placed upon your beloved children, however, we do know that we can grieve the indwelling Spirit, which would also have regrettable consequences for us in this life. So many of your children live out such unfulfilled lives not reaching to the glorious heights of maturity allowing themselves to participate in the divine nature. We pray that every child of God will be constantly aware of the Holy Spirit’s presence in their lives so that they will not cause Him great sadness or grief because they have caused Him to participate in their unholy behavior. We pray that they will understand that most of this unholy behavior would vanish if they would only treat others the way that they want to be treated. Lead us, Oh Lord, to remove all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking, with all malice; and be kind to others, tenderhearted, forgiving others as God, for Christ’s sake, has forgiven us. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption” (Ephesians 4:30).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 6/10/2024

Subject: “Because of Our Love, We Will Obey”

Good morning Heavenly Father. As lawlessness prevails in the world today magnified by both the news media and social media, please help us, dear Lord, to draw closer to you by obeying all of your beautiful commandments. Let us never learn from the world on how to constantly find fault with others, to slam them, or to bash them. We pray that we will demonstrate our love for you and for others by obeying your commands that show us how to live a wonderful life. Indeed, it is your beautiful commandments alone, that can also help us with all of our emotional and psychological problems when the world is at a complete loss to do so. We know through experience that your commandments are not burdensome for it is your indwelling Spirit that helps us to put them into practice. We will hide your words in our hearts. We pray that you will shield all of your beloved children from the lawlessness in the world so that their love does not turn cold as the rest. As the world hates more, let us love even more. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15).
