TIME TO PRAY
" Oh Lord, in the name of Jesus we come to you today with thanksgiving. Thanking you for the privilege of prayer. O Heavenly Father, forgive us of our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Father we come to seek your leading and direction as we have no other help but you. We are confident that you hear and answer the prayers of your people. We humble ourselves under your mighty hand,as we lift up your Church before you. We lift up our Leaders before you. We pray for unity of the believers, as you prayed that we all may be one. We pray for all those in authority in our Nation, and in the Church. We pray for the lost as we desire that all may be saved. We pray for the bereaved, the broken hearted, send comfort and peace. We pray your healing power upon the sick. Lord we pray, make this Church a community of love and peacemaking . Let your Holy Spirit fill this place. Lord we pray that you take away the pride and arrogance that divides your Church and that you break down the walls of separation, and unite us with the bonds of love. Father, let your eternal light shatter the darkness of our ignorance, and show us your purpose. Lord, make us into a house of prayer. Dear Lord , please take away our self- centered ness and self-serving, and give us a spirit of out reach. Father we thank you for the Church and for the people, please keep us faithful to you and to the mission you have given us. We pray in Jesus name. Amen.
