PRAYERS FOR THE LAST WEEK,  IN CASE YOU MISSED ONE

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/19/2022

 Subject: “Living for Others”

Good morning Heavenly Father. “The love of Christ constrains us” opens a whole new horizon and helps us to understand why we are so driven to complete all our work for you. Your love powerfully moves us from one assignment to another in our unending service to you by serving others even when we don’t feel that we are physically able. Following you, Oh Lord, in your death upon the Cross, we have now been made alive; not to live for ourselves but to live for you. Amen! Yes, we believe that your deep abiding love constrains us from following the ways of a selfish world, constantly pulling us back, and moves us to give ourselves to others as you gave your life for us. Therein, we have found our true joy and peace that sustains us even during our most difficult struggles in life. Although our prayers are a bit late today, we pray that they will help all your beloved children to understand how you continue to work in our lives through the indwelling Spirit to follow you in our service to others. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again” (II Corinthians 5:14-15).

Subject: “Help us to be ready”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for giving us the many signs about your Second Coming so that your beloved children can prepare. All through Christian history each generation has believed through the study of the anointed Scriptures that your coming was at hand. Somehow, we know that this was not an accident but the divine plan of God. A plan so unique that it would lead each successive generation to plan for your arrival at any moment. Although with our finite minds and limited understanding we often pick a particular event that must take place before your arrival, which gives humanity much longer to prepare, we know that things may not always be as they appear. Therefore, we pray that we will always be ready not knowing the day or the hour of your coming. We pray that you help us all to work while it is day knowing that a time may come when no man can work for the furtherance of your Kingdom and your glory. Let us spend our time building up one another and letting our light shine before others. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).

Subject: “Help us to do what you say”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, the world may be falling apart around us with evil people saying things beyond the pale, yet we desire to always walk in holiness before you. You have taught us that it’s only possible if we truly listen to what you say. We pray, Oh Lord, that we have ears to hear what you say to us through your magnificent Word, the Bible always made alive by the indwelling Spirit. Without the indwelling Spirit, we cannot hear what you say, so we pray that we always humble ourselves by ceasing all our wandering thoughts, vain imaginations, and giving our undivided attention to what you want to say. If we only listen to your still small, yet powerful voice, through the indwelling Spirit, then we can truly call you Lord, Lord. It’s your voice that’s always calling us away from every form of evil either in images, words, or so-called music. Thank you, Lord, that Your voice always comes in loud and clear when someone attempts to set an evil image before our eyes or to express an evil thought through corrupt communication. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46)

 Subject: “Help Us Watch What We Say”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, your Spirit that dwells in every believer must be so grieved with all the corrupt communication in the world today. Individually, we can feel the indwelling Spirit crying forth with enormous tears of grief that deeply saddens our hearts. We have noticed that this corrupt communication among most of humanity has progressed well beyond vulgarity and filthiness. We have observed that this corrupt communication is filled with damaging lies and half-truths intended to divide and destroy their fellow man. This corrupt communication has filled the airwaves, new media, and social media intoxicating the public. Lies laced with half-truths are leading the entire world into greater divisions and open hostility. This has caused total chaos in the streets of many of our major cities in the world causing riots, deaths, and destruction. We pray that all your children will choose to stop being a conduit for spreading this corrupt communication that is dividing and destroying humanity that’s far worse than any supposed thermo-nuclear war. Lead us, Oh Lord, to shut our ears to the lies and half-truths of our age. We humbly pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers” (Ephesians 4:29).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/15/2022

 Subject: “Rejoice in a New Day”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh, how precious are the days of deliverance. How precious are the days of deliverance, when you have delivered us from the grips of death, caused by a major car accident, a deathly disease, or some other calamity. How precious are the days of deliverance when you have delivered us from the agony of defeat or the rejection of forced unemployment. How precious are the days of deliverance when you have delivered us from the grips of our dependence on psychological drugs, alcohol, or the distasteful addiction to cigarettes. How precious are the days of deliverance from the power of sin, the emotional pain of guilt and the agonizing pit of un-forgiveness. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for creating a brand-new day, where we are no longer pulled down by our past. Help your beloved children to truly accept your loving forgiveness, to let go of their past, believe in their new life in Christ, and walk joyously into the new day with their heads lifted high.  Thank you, Lord, for creating a brand-new day where we will rejoice and be glad in it! We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalms 118:24).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/14/2022

 Subject: “Casting Out Evil”

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray, Oh Lord, that especially your beloved children will not dismiss the power of evil that’s growing stronger every day. We believe this is becoming more self-evident among those who are spiritually mature, in those who spend more time in silence and solitude, and in those who spend many hours every day in prayer and meditation. It’s as though a huge wave of evil is enveloping the world and especially this country. We pray that you will give us strength and wisdom on how to guard our every thought. Let us always keep the Cross before us by dying daily to self, casting out every impure and self-righteous thought immediately. Help your children to see and understand that it’s not all about casting out evil in physical places and other people but it’s more about casting out what’s evil in our own minds. We pray that they will also see how essential it is for us not to flirt with evil in our movies, music, and books. Help us to be very discerning on what we watch, listen to, or read. We pray this in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/13/2022

 Subject: “I pray that all may go well with you”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, that you always tend to give us the strength and energy to complete our task of serving others. Although the rewards of helping others are beyond measure, we have discovered that once the task is complete then we become keenly aware of our own physical wellbeing. We find ourselves also in need of much prayer that our physical health would be as good as our soul or spiritual wellbeing. We admit dear Lord, although we continue to have the deep desire to keep loving and serving others, our physical health tends to slow us down not allowing us to give as much as we truly desire. We pray for all your precious children that things might go well for them by keeping them in perfect health so that nothing will hinder their loving service to others. We pray that all may go well for them and that they may be in good health, as it goes well with their soul or spirit. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul” (ESV, III John 1:2).
