Lord we approach your throne of grace boldly by the blood of Jesus. We pray specifically that you would deliver us from evil. As you are aware Lord, we live in a fallen world and we are surrounded by evil. There are trials and temptations all around us. The enemy of our soul is trying to steal our faith and trust in you. Some of our family and friends have abandoned you due to a demonic assault on their faith. We beseech you Father to help us overcome temptations and please help us to hold on to your unchanging hand. Lord we intercede for those who have shipwrecked their faith. We pray for your mercy and grace to guide them through the rough seas of life. We pray for a revelation of yourself and your love to envelop them. You have loved them with an everlasting love and you will draw them back to the fold by your loving kindness. As we see the way things are unfolding in the world around us we realize that the season of your return is near. We pray for the back sliders to return to you their first love. Draw them back with your loving kindness. Nothing is too difficult for you O Lord. Bring back the wayward children and families. As you said in your word in my father's house are many mansions and I go to prepare a place for you. Thank you Father for answering this our supplication for the wayward children. In the name of Jesus we ask. Amen.
Lord we approach your throne of grace and mercy to intercede for the prodigal sons and daughters. You said in your Word that children are our hearitage. Some have wandered far from the Good Shepherd's loving care. We stand in the gap for them and ask for your divine protection over them. We plead the blood of Jesus as a shield of protection around them. Your word says we shall overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony. The enemy of our souls has blinded the eyes of many children Lord. We pray that your light will shine upon them. Many look to satisfy their lusts in worldly pleasure. However you said in your presence is fullness of joy and at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Help them to be baptized in the river of your love. Let them experience the love and the joy that are only found in you. In the words of the psalmist: Unto Thee O Lord do we lift up our souls. Let not the enemy triumph over us. Let them consider in their hearts like the prodigal did in the parable: In my Father's house even the servants live better then I do. Cause them to turn around and return to the Father's house. We know that your love knows no bounds. Reach out in your mercy and grace and pull them out of the rough seas in whih they seem to be drowning. Let there be a turn around in their lives. For once again in the words of the psalmist: The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever. We rely on your mercy and grace to bring back the prodigals into the Father's house. In the name of Jesus we ask this. Amen.
Lord we come to you this day to surrender our will over to yours. You prayed in the garden of Gethsemene Not my will but thine be done. That is our cry today. King DAvid cried in the book of Psalms chapter 52, Create in me a clean heart O Lord and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy prescence O Lord and take not thy Holy Spirit from me. Lord we cry out to you the same prayer as David. We pray Father God, that you shine the light on the crevices of our heart wherin lie pride, self centeredness, anger , bitterness and envy. Please remove these sins from us Lord. We know that we in ourselves are incapable of ridding ourselves of these vices, however we know you can. Release the unction of the Spirit upon us and free us from our own wretched selves. We commit our ways to you Lord and we pray that you would establish our paths. Make every crooked path straight in our lives. Change us from the inside out until we reflect your glory. Lead us in paths of righteousness for thy name's sake. Lord lift us up and make us stand by faith on heaven's table land. No higher plane have I ever found. Lord plant our feet on higher ground. In Jesus name we ask this. Amen.
Lord we come before you today asking that you set us free from every form of bondage. Sometimes Lord we need to be set free from bondage to our carnal nature. Our carnal nature has us captive in the way wedo things and react to situations. We pray that you release us from bondage to our selves. Help us to react spiritually in response to every natural situation. Other times our bondages are to inanimate substances such as nicotine, alcohol, illicit drugs or things like that. I pray that you break every spiritual stronghold that holds people captive and makes them slaves to alcohol/nicotine/drugs and the rest. Please set us free from bondage to our ego's and pride as we know you hate pride in people. Deliver us so that we make serve you with humbleness of heart. Let us not be inflated in our own self importance. Free us so that we can worship you in spirit and in truth. In the words of King David, Create in me a clean heart O Lord, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your prescence O Lord and take not your Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of my salvation and renew a right spirit within me. We bring this supplication before your throne of grace in the precious all powerful name of Jesus. Amen. Glory to your name. Hallelujah.
"However, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, search for me, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear their prayer from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their country."
