PRAYERS FOR THE LAST WEEK,  IN CASE YOU MISSED ONE

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 10/14/2021

 Subject: “The unseen war”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, as we enter our prayer closet today, we see your people in such disarray, one being pulled in one direction and then another. What’s most unsettling is to see so many being overcome by the powers of this evil world, all the while thinking that they are okay. So many are being swept up in new-age techniques, such as transcendental meditation, that they have so easily integrated into their Christianity because they have not trusted in you alone to transform their lives. So many others are being overcome by the techniques of this fallen world, such as psychology or psychotherapy, to help them with their many problems because they have not trusted in you alone to transform their lives into a beautiful new creation. While many others are swept away by doubting your abilities. Yes, Lord, the battle is being waged against your saints without a shot being fired and many are being overcome. We pray that all of your beloved children will learn to trust in you alone to give them everything they need for life and godliness. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” (Revelation 13:7).

 Subject: “The Spirit of Truth”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, how difficult it would be to start the day without hearing your voice that fills every fiber of our being. To know your thoughts is so different and so reassuring from the confusing chatter in the world, going in one direction then another. You know we are living in a time when they are giving prominence to the lies, allowing everyone to spew their misinformation from the political arena to the entertainment industry, and from the News Media to social media. What a travesty! Thank you, Father, for giving us the Spirit of truth to guide us into all truth. We pray that all your beloved children would not be so eager to accept every fine-sounding argument or supposed truth without first bringing it to the Spirit of truth for clarification or confirmation. Please lead your children not to seek truth in all the wrong places such as asking open-ended questions on social media that will bring forth many lies from the pits of hell. Lead them to come to you alone through the Indwelling Spirit and your anointed words in the Bible. If they must confirm it with others, let them seek out only mature believers in Christ. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come” (John 16:13).

 Subject: “Come out from among them”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for being with us every step of the way to fight against the vain imaginations and the evil thoughts that almost always come unexpectedly. Although at times they may be a great struggle for your precious children, it’s also our assurance that we belong to you when we are successful in the fight. Thank you, Father, for teaching us through your anointed Word and the indwelling Spirit how to wage war successfully against the enemy. We pray that you will continue to teach these valuable lessons to your children, that as believers we have the power to say no to the temptations and that we have power to cast out the vain imagination or evil thoughts from our minds in the blink of an eye. We thank you Lord that you have shown us how much easier it is, in our fight against evil, to simply come out from among them, even if it must include close friends or family. Oh, what joy it is to be victorious against the enemy, then set down at the feet of our LORD to participate in the divine nature. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:5).

Subject: “Our talents and Spiritual gifts”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for the gifts and talents that you have given to every one of your beloved children. Yes, some our natural talents and others are the blessed Spiritual gifts that you have given to every true child of God. We pray that every child of God would recognize their talents and Spiritual gifts and use them for the glory of God. As we use our Spiritual gifts and talents, we feel compelled to use them more and more for your glory and the furtherance of your Kingdom here on earth. Although we may feel absolute exhaustion in our work, we also feel such a tremendous joy in being a faithful servant. Although the work started out slow with great toil and little recognizable success, we have seen it blossom out into a marvelous work bringing great glory to your Name. We pray that all your beloved children take whatever talents or Spiritual gifts they have been given and begin TODAY to use them for your service and glory. Let them see that it will also strengthen their relationship with you. We pray this in the Blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” (Matthew 25:23).

 Subject: “Loving in the face of hostility”

Good morning Heavenly Father. As we enter our prayer closet, we are reminded of the anger and hostility in the world today that’s affecting everyone from the smallest to the greatest. The fallen human nature tells us that people must find fault with others to justify their anger and hostility. It’s amazing how easy this is, to find fault and make false accusations of others, especially with Christians. We know for your beloved children this should not be so for we always seek the good in everyone even when they come against us or do something we don’t like. You have also taught us how to deflect the anger and hostility of others by sincerely loving them which generates a tremendous blessing to us. We receive a twofold blessing. First, from not feeling the damaging effects of both emotional and physical problems caused from expressing our own anger. And secondly, we receive a tremendous blessing from having your magnificent love flow through us to others. We pray that all your beloved children would receive this blessing by deflecting hostility from others by expressing true agape love. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake” (Matthew 5:11).

 Subject: “We always acknowledge God”

Good morning Heavenly Father. As you know Father, we live in a world that wants to categorize everyone while denying what makes them who they really are. We live in a day where everyone is lumped into either being conservative or a liberal or being Republican or a Democrat with no thought of their religious convictions being the primary focus in their lives. Help us, Oh Lord, to be a Christian first in both our loyalty and devotion. Teach us how to acknowledge you in all our conversations and decisions, especially in politics. We pray that all your beloved children will not be so blinded by their political convictions that they forget to acknowledge their loyalty to you alone. It is you who will always direct our path even if it varies slightly from our political convictions. We trust you alone to open our eyes to the abuses and grey areas of man’s established organizations and keep us on the narrow path that leads to eternal life. We pray that we always acknowledge you first in every area of our lives. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:6).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 10/8/2021

 Subject: “The great joy of godliness and contentment”

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord, for teaching us true happiness and contentment. In our old life following the pattern that was laid down for us we were taught that getting the world’s wealth would make us happy. We were taught that the possession of beautiful and expensive things would make us even happier. Forgive us Lord for the years we chased after these things to only discover that they didn’t bring happiness but anxiety along with many other problems. Thank you, Lord, that it’s been many years now since you have delivered us and the contentment that we now have coupled with as many years striving toward a godly life has equaled great gain beyond our wildest imagination. No longer plagued with old emotional problems and free from the old sin nature we now rest content in all the wonderful blessings that you have given us that cannot be measured in wealth. For indeed we have found true happiness in you alone. We pray that all your precious children would experience contentment and godliness which is great gain as we face together an uncertain future. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content” (I Timothy 6:6-8).
