A prayer of protection for the world's believers

Image
Lord Jesus, Protector and Provider-- I pray your powerful hand of protection of the believers of the world. I pray for their souls to be full with the knowledge of You. I pray for boldness and protection as they share the gospel in hostile territories. I pray that their lives will radiate the love of Jesus as they go about their daily business. Give them fierce angels to wage warfare on their behalf, to cover them with protection, and to guide them to the battles You want them to fight. Give them victory against their spiritual enemies! Fill them with peace as they fulfill their calling. Protect their spouses and children with Your loving hands; let them live victorious and impactful lives on this earth and for eternity. Bless them, oh Lord! Give these warriors heaven's eyes--help them see with Your perspective and act for Your glory! In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen. image by  Jean Beaufort

What will You do for me today?

Image
Dear Lord, I will praise You. Your blessings are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness. I wonder what You will do for me today? Whatever You decide, it will be incredible, gracious, and for my benefit. Maybe I should be asking, what will I do for You? Amen. "Because of the Lord's great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." (Lam. 3:22, 23)

Lord, Take my hand

Image
Precious Lord, Take my hand, lead me on, let me stand. I am tired, I am weak, I am worn. Through the storm, through the night, lead me on to the light, take my hand, Precious Lord, lead me home. When my way grows drear, Precious Lord, linger near when my life is almost gone. Hear my cry Hear my call, Hold my hand, lest I fall, take my hand, Precious Lord, lead me home. Amen and amen. Lyrics by Thomas Dorsey

I'm lost without You

Image
Lord, my Hope and Healer-- Give me words when my thoughts are jumbled. Give me peace when I am overwhelmed. Give me community when I feel alone. Give me comfort when I am grief-stricken. Give me Yourself, the only one who satisfies. Help me see You in the world, like hope on the horizon. Help me see You in Your people, who put their arms around me. Help me see You at work in my life, even when my heart feels hopeless. I'm lost without You. Amen.
