St. Columba worship service prayer guide.
1) As we offer our prayers of thanks today let us remember those who suffer hurt and oppression because they put their trust in Jesus.
Pray for the safety of those who cannot meet in public to worship, and pray that religious freedom and democracy will be everyone’s birthright.
2) Believers praying for their neighbours and then being available to them with a servant heart is simply doing the will of God.
Who is your neighbour? Any person who is nearby, a friend in church, a family member, friend, fellow worker, classmate, or other acquaintance, they are your neighbours. In Luke 10, Jesus describes a neighbour as someone you meet on life’s road and now may need your help.
Call out their names when you talk to God.
Today we can pray for the Social well being of our neighbours: calling for God to strengthen their families; that broken relationships be restored; that they will be content with the lifestyle they can afford and there will be no stress from lack of advancement. Pray that there be a spirit of love in their families and that there be no hurtful remarks, sarcasm, or bullying anywhere in their homes.
Please use these topics as your prayer guide through the week.
Prayer is just a conversation with God, expressing the joys of knowing Him and giving thanks for the many blessings He has bestowed upon you. He is also ready to answer your prayers and give you, in His time, the things you ask for. Remember the words of James in chapter 5 verse 16 “The prayers of the righteous person achieve much”.
Bear in mind the laws of nature and your need will influence and determine the outcome of your prayers. ….. In other words don’t ask to live to 120. 🙂
I believe there is great power in corporate prayer so if you have a prayer topic that you would like us to pray over please let me know. God Bless.
The prayer Jesus taught us.
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be your name. May your Kingdom come to us and may your will be done here on earth, as it is in heaven. Please give to us our daily bread and forgive our sins and help us forgive those who sin against us. Save us from times of trial Lord and deliver us from all things evil. For the Kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen.
