Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/16/2018
Good morning Heavenly Father. In the beginning our greatest desire, Oh Lord was to have the mind of Christ. Then once we had it through the miracle of our salvation it is the most beautiful thing ever, because we see what is most important to Christ and His mission. It is not just a fleeting memory like many that pass through the mind of man, but a memory, a thought that stays with us for many years without ever changing. A thought that fires our passion and drives us to do things we never thought possible. Even if it’s completely at odds with the world or the established religion of our age. Having the mind of Christ we see what’s really important to Christ and His early Apostles. It can be summed up in one word, “Transformation.” Christ died on the Cross so that we could have life and have it more abundantly. This abundant life is only possible when we are transformed, made into a brand-new creation, where old things pass away. God forgive us, for in this age of deception transformation is no longer believed. We pray this is the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ” (I Corinthians 2:16).

Good morning Heavenly Father. The term faithful remnant should have a whole new meaning as we draw close to the end. While we may admit to a momentary lapse in our faith due to the mounting pressure from an evil and vengeful world, it is quickly restored through Spiritual reflection and prayer. Forgive us Father for even the momentary lapses. Although we can’t see, we believe. The road ahead may not be what we imagined, but our faith causes us to press on believing it’s the best. We believe therefore we act. Although we can’t always see the outcome, we believe, and our hope is made stronger. Praise God. The road ahead may be difficult, but our faith is certain in things not yet seen. We believe that you will see us through, as our faith follows your lead. Our faith will always obey. Our faith indeed is proved by our actions, which is the evidence of things not seen. We are the faithful remnant. Praise God! Oh Lord, help us to always prove our faith to others through our actions. By faith we will become transformed. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).

Good morning Heavenly Father. Sometimes we wonder how we could have deserved all that you have done for us, but then the answer comes quickly. We didn’t. We did not deserve. All of our works are but filthy rags. All of our attempts to live a righteous life apart from you ends in total failure. Without your mercy we would still be trapped in bondage to our old life. Still trapped in the old sin nature and a slave to our every impulse. Thank you for being the Father of mercies, for indeed you have demonstrated your compassion in action. You, Oh Lord have lifted us up replacing our heart of stone with a heart of flesh. You have made us into a brand-new creation, delivering us from the power of sin and the devil. Praise God. We want to thank you for our new life in Christ. We want to thank you for growing us from one degree of glory to another, which we call transformation. Only the Father of mercies would have such compassion to send His Only Son to Save us from eternal damnation. We pray this is the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort” (II Corinthians 1:3).

Good morning Heavenly Father. It breaks my heart that so many who claim to know you have been deceived. Help us to recognize the three things that must take place before your glorious return, the deception, the falling away, and the revealing of the son of perdition. Any talk of the coming Antichrist sends most, in the West, into a fit of rage or denial, claiming that they won’t be here, so why discuss it. Yet, they fail to see that your beloved children will recognize the Antichrist before your return in glory. Oh Lord, keep your children from being swept away by the great tide of deception that will overtake the entire world like a flood. Open their eyes so that they will recognize the deception, that will precede the falling away, that will precede the revealing of the son of perdition. Give your faithful remnant courage to proclaim that denying the transformation in Christ, leading them to embrace the world’s counselors, is the deception that leads to the falling away that will eventually lead to the revealing the son of perdition. Lord, open their eyes. We pray this in 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).

Good morning Heavenly Father. What a joy it is to mute the cellphone and ignore Social Media. Our delight is in the law of the Lord. From Social Media to endless videos your children have been taken captive. They have joined the entire world in its addiction to the cellphone as if it was a cherished part of their body. Lead them, Oh Lord to delight themselves in the law of the Lord. Help them not to fear the silence and their time alone with you. A time to reflect only upon your Word with no distractions. A time to meditate upon your Word alone. To have their delight in the law of the Lord. Therein is true peace where time seems to stop. And the joy of your presence takes hold. Praise God. Lead them to transition away from the cellphone and Social Media and once again experience the joy of interpersonal relationships where they can actually make eye contact and communicate with one another. Where they have an opportunity to read the other person’s body language that allows them to reach deeper into their heart. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night” (Psalms 1:2).
Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/11/2018
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for teaching us that our righteousness in you is our everlasting foundation. So, let us obey on all your beautiful commands and stand on the principles of our faith, which is our everlasting foundation. We pray that we will not follow the ways of the wicked who are being swept away by the whirlwind of your wrath. For they have no foundation and are destroyed by the consequences of their own sins. Let us diligently search the Scriptures for all your blessed commands and learn how to apply them to our lives so that we can walk righteously before you our Lord. Teach us, Oh Lord the principles of our faith so that we know how to trust you alone, allowing you to fulfill all of your great promises in our lives. Although we have already been made righteous by the precious blood of the Lamb and the price He paid on the Cross, we know we must put on that righteousness while putting off the old life. Help us to never stop until we have obtained perfection in Christ. We pray this is the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation” (Proverbs 10:25).
Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 7/10/2018
Good morning Heavenly Father. Be anxious for nothing. So, how do we discover the secret of overcoming anxiety and entering into a state of perfect peace that defies understanding? Alright Lord we will tell ourselves not to be anxious, but then we will take those things that we think that’s making us anxious and bring them before you in prayer as a supplication. So we will humbly or maybe beg you Lord to solve this problem causing us to be anxious, but we can’t stop there, now we need to thank you for it. We thank you Lord that you are in control and you will not allow us to be tempted or tested beyond what we can handle. We thank you Lord that you will always work things out for the best, for those who love you. Yes, we love you Lord and we know that if we love you then we will also keep your commandments. So goes our prayer in the prayer closet with the door shut seeking an audience with our God who promises to give us a peace that defies understanding. Hallelujah. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” (Philippians 4:6).
This is a sampling of some of my previous prayers. Coming soon one year of my prayers will be put into a new Devotional Book that will be available here online and in your local bookstore.
