Deliver us from evil
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.
