Prayer for the persecuted
Lord we approach your throne of grace this morning in intercession for the brethren who are persecuted for following you. We build up a hedge of protection around them. For Thou O Lord are a shield about them. We pray that your pillar of fire will protect them and that your pillar of cloud will comfort them. Give them your strength to overcome. Your word says that He who endures to the end shall be saved. Let them hear your voice of comfort and encouragement. Let your Holy Spirit soothe, comfort and edify them. Ignite them with zeal and let them stand firm rooted and grounded in your word. Protect them Lord and let their persecutors retreat. Thwart every plan of evil against them. We intercede for those whose faith is wavering. Cause them to hold on to your unchanging hand. For you will never let go of our hand. Though the storm clouds come and the wind may blow, you will never abandon us. We ask in Jesus name. Amen.
Prayer for forgiveness
Lord we look to you today for forgiveness. Cleanse us Lord from every sin that so easily besets us. Wash us with the blood of Jesus. Forgive us our trespasses. You said though our sins are like scarlet you will wash us white as snow. Give us an undivided heart so we may walk in your ways. Thou O Lord are a shield about us. You are our glory and the lifter of our head. See that there be no wicked way in me. Keep us walking on the pathways of righteousness. Let us return to the strait and narrow path. Protect our soul from evil. Deliver us from the evil one. In Jesus name. Amen
We come before you this morning with thanksgiving in our hearts. We thank you Lord for delivering us from the dark web of deceit we were entangled in. Thank you for setting us free to worship you. Deliver us from evil. We intercede for those still held captive by sin and satan. We pray Lord that they would see the light. We pray that their eyes will be annointed with eye salve. Let the light of the glorious gospel of Christ shine upon them. We plead the blood of Christ as a shield of protection over their lives. Let every plan of satan over their lives be thwarted. We establish your will over their lives and over ours. Thy Kingdom come and Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We declare your Lordship over our lives and our families. You are our shield and exceedingly great reward. We thank you for the many blessings on us. Abba Father we thank you for adopting us as your children. Our God reigns, blessed be the God of our salvation. In Jesus name, amen.
Lord this morning we pray for your protection over our lives. We plead the precious blood of Jesus over us and ask that you would be a shield over us. We pray for your protection over our bodies, over our children, our families and our homes. We pray that you would be a ring of fire around us. Let not the enemy triumph over us. Let us be shielded under the shadow of your wings. As you said to Abraham, you are our shield and exceedingly great reward. We long for your presence to shield us from the onslaught of the evil one. Purify us O Lord. You are the God who rescues. You will not allow your children to be assaulted by the enemy. We ask once again that your presence and your blood will be a ring of fire around us and shield us from the enemy's onslaught. We bind satan and his cohorts in Jesus name and lift up the God who rescues. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
Prayer for Jerusalem
Lord we come before your throne of grace to intercede for the peace of Jerusalem. We pray O Lord, for the rocket fire to cease and that terrorist groups will not attack the Holy city. We intercede for the civilians caught in the cross fire. We pray for the children whom the terrorists are using as a human shield to propagate their violence. We pray Father God that the misinformation that is widespread be dispelled. Most importantly we pray for your protection over the inhabitants of the land and those whose homes and lives are destroyed. O Lord, you have stated that He who keepeth Israel does not slumber nor sleep. We pray for your watchful eye on the people of Jerusalem. We pray Lord that the terrorists will be flushed out and the collateral damage to life and limb will be minimal. We pray for peace in the middle east, especially between Israel and her neighbors. We pray Lord that you will triumph in the land and that your laws will be upheld. We pray for your protection over Gaza and the West bank. Let the innocent be spared. We pray Lord God that you will speak order into the chaos. Thank you Lord for watching over your people. In the name above every name we pray, in Jesus name, Amen.
