PRAYERS


The Lord's Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13):
"Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen."


New Life Parent's Prayer:  Heavenly Father, please help me to deal with the death of my child. I am frozen with this overwhelming grief. I don't understand why my life is filled with this pain and heartache, but I turn my eyes to You as I seek to find strength and trust in Your faithfulness. You, Lord are a God of comfort and love, and I ask you to help me to patiently wait on You and not despair. My heart is crushed, but I know You will not abandon me, and You have a plan for my life. Help me to accept this loss as part of Your plan. You came to heal the brokenhearted, so I know You are with me now. Only You can heal my sorrow. I ask for Your comfort. Though I can't see past today, You know all things. Please give me hope again and show me Your plan for my life. Show me how to survive day by day. Show me how to make lemonade out of this lemon, and who You want me to share it with. Help me to be sensitive to Your leading and guidance, and lead me into my new life. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

 




 
Sinner's Prayer for Salvation:  
Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ. I confess that I am a sinner, and I ask You to forgive me for all of my sins. I choose to follow and obey and accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me, forgiving me and giving me eternal life in heaven with You. In Jesus’s name I pray. Amen. 


General Prayer:  Dear God, You are the author of the peace in my soul and the joy that I feel when I am praising You. You are the builder of all things mighty and small. You truly are an awesome God and I can only worship and obey You, as all that I am is what You have made, all that I have is what You have provided. I am insignificant compared to Your mighty works. I am grateful when I think of Your mercy towards me.

I need You to guide my feet when I walk abroad. I need You to guide my tongue when I open my mouth. I need You to provide me with shelter, to give me the peace, joy and wisdom to survive this world without losing sight of You.  I am wholly dependent on Your grace and mercy. For You provide every breath I take.

More often than not I lose sight of You, but You are still there when I remember where I belong, and Your mercy never wanes. I sometimes feel unworthy of Your attention but You give it to me anyway.

You suffered Your only Son to die a horrendous death to take my sins and grant me pardon so that I may one day walk into Your presence and have the honor to praise You face to face.

I have no wish to fathom the mysteries that surround You. I only know that I need to serve You with all my heart and being, because only You are worthy. I ask You to use me as You see fit and mold my character to reflect Your holiness, so that others may see Your good works and rejoice in Your love as I do. Guide me to plant a fruitful garden that You may reap the results to benefit Your glory. In Jesus’s name I pray. Amen.
