Loving Lord, I come to You specially today to lift up to Your throne of grace all those that are downcast and distressed – and those that are lonely, needy and weary. Lord I pray that Your loving care, comfort and help will surround each one – and I ask that You would become very real to them, in this time of difficulty or loneliness ….
Bring into the life of each one someone who would share the love and joy of the Lord Jesus – someone who would lift up the spirits and hearts of each man and woman today – someone who would show the love and kindness of Christ to any who has become lost in the difficulties of this world and find themselves alone, lost or friendless ….
Refresh their hearts and souls I pray with the truth that You love them so much that You died for them, and that You have promised to comfort and succour each one of us in times of need.
Let them see that they are not alone , but that You are an ever present help in time of troubles and that the difficulties of this life are but for a short time. Help them to know that You are ever at their side, and are working in them a wonderful glory that will last forever!
Use me Lord I pray, to be a light to those in need, refreshment to the weary and an encouragement to those that are downcast …
Lord help me live from day to day, in such a self forgetful way.
That even when I kneel to pray, my prayer shall be, for others …
There is a time when my personal burdens are heavy and I must bring them to Thee, but help me, God, to be concerned also with others and the great world about me. Bring to my heart and mind those who need a Word from You that I may share Your Word and their hearts be lightened. Give me a discerning spirit I pray, to see the struggles and feel the burdens that I might pray in earnest and bear the burdens in my heart for my brothers and sisters ….
Use me this day to stand in the gap and trevail in prayer for those afflicted, grieving, and facing uncertainties in life. Be with my children and guide them with Your ever-present arm back into the fold where they will be safe from the enemy. Restore those that are suffering to wholeness today. Let Your healing power flow as Your mercy still flows, and may I be a beacon of light to direct them towards You where they may find peace and rest in You. In the matchless name of Jesus Christ I humbly pray, Amen …..
