Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 9/27/2023

Subject: “Trusting in Your Loving Providence”

Good morning Heavenly Father. We thank you, Lord, for giving us everything we need in this life. This has been a hard lesson for many to accept who believe that they should have more of what the world has to offer even when they can’t afford it. They agonize over what they don’t have instead of being thankful for what they do have by your generous hand. Let them not dwell on acquiring wealth and prosperity in this world but rather on becoming all that you want them to be in Christ. We pray that you will help your children to control their lust or powerful desires of the flesh. We pray that they will experience the amazing joy and peace of contentment brought forth by trusting in your loving providence. We pray that they would learn how to guard their lustful eyes by seeing others as brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, or fathers and mothers instead of mere objects to be possessed. We pray that we all would learn how to live a life of true humility by glorifying you for your providential care. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world” (I John 2:16).

 Subject: “Now Concerning Spiritual Gifts

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for teaching us that these Spiritual gifts are not for our personal prestige and power. In fact, we are simply the conduit used by the indwelling Spirit to help others and to further your mission here on earth. If the Church is weak and worldly, it’s because they have not allowed you to place them in the church where they need to be used. These Spiritual gifts that you have so graciously given to them is for the common good so all might be built up. We pray that all your beloved children will discover their own unique Spiritual gifts and use them to build up your Kingdom here on earth. What a tremendous joy it is to allow you to touch others through us as we use of our Spiritual gifts. It’s way beyond just being nice to others, it’s giving them exactly what they need at that very moment we exercise the use of our unique Spiritual gift. Help us to see that every Spiritual gift is important and should always be used to the glory of God. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant” (I Corinthians 12:1).

 Subject: “We Can’t, But He Can”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for the many lessons that you have taught us on our long pilgrimage. One of the greatest lessons you have taught us is: “we can’t, but you can.” Fallen humanity has always sought to become their own overcomers by gathering their counselors, using their knowledge, and depending on their own strength. Thank you, for teaching us that we can only be true overcomers when we learn to depend on you exclusively. We depend on you by seeking your counsel alone through the indwelling Spirit that gives us all the wisdom, the strength of character, and Spiritual guidance we need. When faced with so many problems in a fallen world and our own sinful nature, we have learned to depend on you alone to grow us into a beautiful new creation. When others pull us down, you are always there to lift us up with your divine love showing us our true value. We pray that you teach this most valuable lesson to all of your children so that they too can become overcomers and sit down with you on your heavenly throne. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne” (Revelation 3:21).

 Subject: “We Trust in the Lord”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, many of your beloved children feel like an image of a person that suddenly fragments into a hundred pieces or they are struggling just to hold things together. Many are saying the pressure is unbelievable. Prayer requests on social media platforms are off the chart. Many have expressed their feelings that they simply don’t feel themselves or they sense a tremendous presence of the enemy. Also, many of us feel that something major will happen before the year’s end, that will shake the very foundations of our society and the world. Although we may feel as if the world around us is falling apart, we know that you remain the same. Your great and precious promises have not changed. They are still available to us, allowing us to actually participate in the divine nature if we only have faith. Help your precious children to stop trusting in the world and the works of their own hands, and to trust only in you; to not only see us through these dark days but to embrace heavenly bliss in all its glory. We pray this in the Blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (II Peter 1:4).

 Subject: “Open Your Mind About the Things to Come”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, we come humbly into your presence today willing to accept whatever truth you want to teach us, whatever truth we need to learn from your all-sufficient Word. Help us to always have an open mind about things to come knowing that our knowledge is not infinite. We understand that there is a real danger of developing a theological understanding of things to come from our own echo chamber, from those who tend to agree with us. To do so could solidify an understanding that is not correct. We simply cannot speak back to you, our Creator, saying, “This is the way things need to be.” If we, your beloved children, have done so, please forgive us and help us to have an open mind about things to come based only on the clear teachings of your Word. For we do know, with all assurance, that there will be a “strong delusion” in the last days that will blind many people to the truth. Thank you for teaching us that the truth does not dwell in wicked pride and outrageous lies. We pray this in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?” (Romans 9:20).

Subject: “Our Words Have Great Power”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for showing us that we must be different from the world. We are so grieved that the world takes no thought of how their hateful and mean-spirited words are destroying one another. Even the news media is happy to carry these damaging words as legitimate news stories as their hateful rhetoric eats into the hearts of so many causing untold problems for years to come. The damage being caused by this hateful rhetoric is tearing at the very fabric of society creating open hostility in the streets of many of our great cities around the world. No longer do political enemies have a monopoly on hateful rhetoric but we now see it spread through every social media platform. We pray that your children will mark their every word by thinking about them first and by bringing them before the indwelling Spirit prior to speaking to them on social media, publicly, or even privately to another individual. Impress upon your children, Oh Lord, that their words should only build up and not ever tear down. There is great power in our words! We pray this in the most honored Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Proverbs 18:21).

Subject: “We Trust in You Lord”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, we have seen through the study of history where whole nations and people have run completely in the opposite direction to escape what they fear most. We believe Satan has always used this to his diabolical advantage by making them susceptible to a far greater danger. Although fear has a great blinding effect, we pray that all your beloved children would not fear what lies ahead on the left or the right so that their eyes can remain fully open. We know that there are great powers at work today in our world witnessed by the many people being led in one direction and then another. They have become easy pawns of their masters following one group then another spilling out into the streets of our cities around the world. We pray that your children would not fear those things coming upon the world that causes blind loyalty to man or an organization rather than our loyalty in God alone. Let us look only to you during these difficult days trusting in you alone to keep us safe and on the right path. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe” (Proverbs 29:25).

 Subject: “Be Gone, Satan”

Good morning Heavenly Father. “Be gone, Satan!” We pray, Oh Lord, that in these days of deception that you will instruct all of your beloved children to keep this phrase in their mind and upon their lips. We are living in a day where it’s become way too easy to worship Satan and not even be aware of it. We are appalled at how those who claim to know you are worshiping men of great influence, political figures, or even religious personalities. They blindly follow them as they hang on to their every word as if it’s the gospel truth with no mixture of error. They blindly ignore all of their outrageous sins against your beautiful commandments along with their nauseating pride and relentless boasting. This following has blindly turned into praise and adoration that clearly borders on worship. We pray that this will stop immediately, especially amongst those who claim to know your Son, Jesus Christ as their Savior. We pray that they will firmly rebuke Satan who has cast a shadow over their eyes leading them to the threshold of worshiping man rather than God. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve”” (Matthew 4:10, ESV).
