ANever Doubt the Power of Prayer train needs to stay ‘on track’ to do what it needs to do and get where it needs to go. It is easy for us to become distracted, side-tracked. The devil loves to bait and lure us away from focusing on the Lord, the Bible, and God’s will for our lives. When we get side-tracked, we are off God’s track. Off His path.

The devil uses distractions to get us off track. We need to stay on track with the Lord to fulfil His will for our lives. To do what God wants us to do and go where He wants us to go in life. Don’t get side-tracked. Watch out for distractions.

Pray

Father help us to stay on track with you. Forgive us for when we get distracted and side-tracked. Help us to stay on course. Help us day by day to seek and follow you. Knowing how poor my attention span can be, Father, I am so easily distracted. Not to mention in this age, there are endless distractions. Help me, Father, and help us all, to stay on the path of your righteousness. Help us to follow you, dear Lord! Amen.

“He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3

“Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses my servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.” Joshua 1:7

Prayers for people who are infected with COVID-19 or facing quarantine.

Jesus, during your ministry on earth you showed your power and caring, by healing people of all ages and stations of life from physical, mental, and spiritual ailments. Be present now to people who need your loving touch because of COVID-19. May they feel Your power of healing through the care of doctors and nurses.

Take away the fear, anxiety, and feelings of isolation from people receiving treatment or under quarantine. Give them a sense of purpose in pursuing health and protecting others from exposure to the disease. Protect their families and friends and bring peace to all who love them. Amen

God answers prayers.Do you struggle with the same problems each day? The same ‘sin’? Often, when someone gives testimony about overcoming the kind of obstacles in life that we all are prone to, it encourages us to overcome our own problems. We can turn away from sin and turn to God and He will deliver us from temptation.

When we share our struggles, when we share our victories, and most importantly, when we share how the Lord heals us, saves us, rescues us, sets us free, makes us whole, protects us, delivers us, teaches us, chastens us, corrects us, leads us to repentance, etc., others see the love, power, mercy, grace, strength, and glory of the Lord. Then they too can find hope in Him and inspiration and encouragement for their own lives.

Let us humble ourselves before God, and as He leads us to share our struggles and victories with others, always remembering to give glory to the Lord. Let us love the Lord, love others, pray for others, help and support others, and encourage others all for the glory of Christ!

Pray

Father, help me to tell others about my own struggles.

Father, I believe there is such good in doing that for two reasons. First, people can love us, pray for us, encourage and help us. Second, dear Lord, people can learn of your love, grace, mercy, and of how you rescue and free us when we surrender ourselves to you. Lord, you are glorified when we share our testimonies. Please give us all the courage and boldness and strength and humility to share with others whenever you desire, both our struggles and victories. And please Lord don’t let us take any glory for ourselves. You’re the one who deserves ALL the glory, Lord. Amen.

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” 1 John 5:4

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2

“Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed."

"The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” James 5:16

Pray for people at higher risk of developing the disease.

Dear Lord, we lift to You our concern for people who are more likely than others to become severely ill from COVID-19 - the elderly and people with chronic health conditions. Protect them from harm and be their comfort in this time of uncertainty. Amen.


Tuesday, 23 June

If we are honest, we sometimes pick and choose when we want to obey the Lord, how we want to obey the Lord, how fully we want to obey the Lord, and under what conditions we want to obey the Lord? If we even want to obey the Lord at all? Consider this. JESUS CHRIST IS LORD. FOREVER. But sometimes we are prideful and think of ourselves as “lords” of our own lives. Remember who Jesus Christ is – and who we are. We have placed our faith in Christ as Lord who died on the cross for us and was raised from the dead. We have given our lives over to Him for the promise of His forgiveness and eternal life. We are his children and his servants. He is Lord!

Pray

... at prayer!Father, forgive us for every way in which each and every one of us falls short regarding loving and obeying you. Give us all a hunger and thirst for doing right in your eyes. Help us to desire to please and honour and obey you. Show us where we need to clean up our obedience and help us to do so. Make us into children and servants of yours of whom you are proud! Help us to love you and to bring you joy and pleasure and glory forever and ever! Amen.

Note in the scriptures below how the soldiers obey the centurion in charge of them. And how Jesus remarks on the centurion’s faith in understanding this and in Christ. There should be no question for us. When Jesus says do something, we should do it. No debate. Simply obedience. I am a work in progress and thank the Lord He is working on me. I pray He does the --same with you!

“…He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6

“Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion said to Him, pleading with Him, Saying, Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented. And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. “For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard it, He marvelled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!” Mt. 8:5-10

Pray for medical professionals, responsible for decisions
about fighting the new coronavirus
.

Father, we seek Your wisdom daily.
Be with people making decisions that affect the lives and futures
of our families, communities, countries, and the wider world.
Inspire and invigorate people developing better tests to diagnose the virus,
vaccines to prevent it, and protocols and communication to eliminate the disease’s spread. May truth and empathy be the touchstones of people setting policies for our protection. Amen.


Wednesday, 24 June

Sometimes we can be busy doing our thing and the Lord might impress upon us to do something else. It can feel like His agenda is getting in the way of our agenda. But God is God. His agenda should be our agenda too. So, when the Lord has something for us to do, we need to do it and not accuse God Almighty of interrupting us. But humbly, lovingly, reverently submitting to Him and choosing to obey – the Lord.

It's time to pray!Is this just about me? No, it isn’t. This message is for all of us. For, if we’re honest with ourselves, we are works in progress who need to learn how to more fully devote our lives to the Lord - in humility, love, faithfulness and obedience. Strive to devote yourself fully, wholly, moment by moment, to the Lord Jesus Christ. Now. And forever. AMEN!

Pray

Father forgive me for my pride. The more I see my sin, the more I want to be rid of it. The more I want your forgiveness. And to not fall back into it. The more I want to please you. I am so sorry for my pride in all the ways I find it manifests. Lord, I am surely not alone in this. Forgive us all for our pride! Help us to learn to humble ourselves before you. Help us to live lives of love for you, and of obedience to you. Help us to not see your will as interrupting OUR lives. Instead, remind us Father, that we who believe in you, Jesus, as Lord, belong to you. Lord help us to grow in your image and your ways, Amen.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2

“For you were bought at a price; therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:20

A prayer for uncertain times

‘Do not be afraid, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great.’
Genesis 15:1

‘For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will set me high on a rock.’ Psalm 27:5

‘Wait for the LORD, be strong, and let your heart take courage, wait for the Lord.’ Psalm 27:14
‘But our citizenship is in heaven, and it is from there that we are expecting a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.’ Philippians 3:20

‘How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing.’ Luke 13:34.


Thursday, 25 June

Nothing is too hard for God.Sometimes we leave something or someone behind only to discover that the Lord wants us to go back. Either because He never wanted us to leave in the first place. Or because He wanted us to leave for a season and then go back. But sometimes when this happens, we are afraid, ashamed, prideful, or embarrassed. We might think it’s too late or wrong to go back. We don’t want to go back. We’re worried about going back.

If the Lord is calling you to go back to something or someone, and you are sure about this through prayer and good counsel, go back. Go back for Christ’s sake. And trust the Lord to give you the courage and strength and all you need to go back in obedience to Him.

A Trinity prayer

Pray

Gathering God, who spoke words of comfort to Abram, pointing to a bright future that seemed so unlikely, as we wander this wilderness of virus uncertainty; bewildered and confused, frustrated and angry, help us all hear Your words beyond the chaos and din:

‘Do not be afraid, I am your shield.’
Christ with us, Christ within us,
Christ behind us, Christ before us.
[SILENCE]

Sheltering Son, in these days of trouble, cover with your protection those made most vulnerable by the fall-out of indecision; gather under your wings all feeling overlooked and marginalised, holding their breath for fear. A fragile peace might fracture; where to call home? How will we make ends meet? Help us all hear your words beyond the chaos and din:

‘Do not be afraid, I am your shield.’
Christ comfort and restore us.
Christ beneath us, Christ above us,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger.
[SILENCE]

Strengthening Spirit, waiting on You, let our hearts take courage, mindful of our citizenship in heaven, working for Your will to be done on earth. May all those in political leadership be willing to seek and serve the good of all creation. Help us all hear your words beyond the chaos and din:

‘Do not be afraid, I am your shield.’
Christ in hearts of all that love us,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
[SILENCE]

In the name of Almighty God, Creator, Son and Spirit we pray, Amen.

Prayer works!Running from truth never undoes truth. The most it can do is make us avoid truth. But the truth remains.

Have you ever ‘run yourself ragged and worn yourself out’? Then by the mercy of Christ, at times when we are out of breath from it all, He reminds us that what we need isn’t to run from something but to run to something. Run into the precious, strong, healing, comforting arms of Jesus.

Jesus is our refuge. He will not undo what was already done but will carry us day by day until the moment we leave behind this earth and its trials and tears and enter into the endless joy of being forever with Him.

Heaven. Perfect bliss, perfect blessedness with Jesus. For those who turn from their wickedness on this earth and turn to Him as Lord. Living and breathing for Him. Living to love and to glorify Him. Finding refuge in Him here on this earth. Then for evermore with Jesus. Heaven. Everlasting joy and refuge. With Christ. Run to Jesus. May He be your refuge and Father, Lord, Saviour, comforter, healer, and friend – now and for evermore!

Pray

Lord, take my trials, tears, take my running and testimony, take my heart and messages you give me, and use it all to draw people all over this world into your forever and ever-loving, merciful, joyful, healing, comforting, everlasting, splendorous fold, Amen.

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4

“Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.” Psalm 62:8

A prayer as we face the Coronavirus

Living God, in our hour of need we turn again to you, for we have nowhere else to turn.
We put our faith in you because you have proved your faithfulness time and again.
We reaffirm our love for you because you have never let us go.
We thank you that you are not distant from us, but have drawn near, in your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer changes things!Does love need to be earned, or is it just ‘there’? Does the Lord love us, even when we are not doing anything for him? We can easily become used to the idea that we have to ‘earn’ someone’s love by what we do for them. But God didn’t create love to be something to be earned or worked for. His greatest commands are to love Him with all our hearts and to love others as ourselves. In one word, what are His greatest commands? LOVE! Love was not designed to be worked for and earned. It is we humans in our sinfulness who have messed up love and made it conditional.

The Lord’s love cannot be earned nor worked for. It is given to us through Jesus’ death and resurrection and received through turning from our sins and believing in Him as Lord who died for us and was raised from the dead for us. We receive God’s love and forgiveness and are given a forever relationship with Him.

His love is given to us by His grace through faith in Jesus as Lord! Serving Jesus is not to earn, and gain and keep, His love, but is to be an expression of our love for, and obedience to, Him. And our love for, and obedience to, the Lord is to be how we respond to His magnificent love for us! And it all begins with the love of Jesus!

Pray

Lord, help us to believe and receive your love each and every day! Remind us we cannot earn your glorious love. Help us to experience and feel it. Help us to rejoice in it. Help us to return your love to you, Father, and help us to pass it along to others. Amen.

“We love Him because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19

“And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.” 1 John 4:16

A prayer for fear

Lord, you have shared our life, tasted our death and defeated it;
You understand our worries and our fears.
Help us to respond as your children now.
We pray about this pandemic spreading across our world,
remembering all who have lost loved ones.
and praying for those seriously ill at this time. Amen.

Help us to live by faith and not by fear, to build bridges not barriers,
and to resist all who would speak ill of any other group.
Amen.

Saturday, 4 July

Nothing is too hard for God.Creator God, Thank you for the waters of the earth, for the life-sustaining rains, lakes, and deep oceans.

You were formed in the womb of Mary our Mother,
You became part of this earth,
And you gazed upon this world with human eyes.

being faithful in prayer,
and bringing encouragement, hope and peace,
always trusting in you our Rock and our Redeemer.
These prayers we bring to you in Jesus’ name. Amen.


There are no “perfect prayers” any more than there are perfect people. Perfection is found in the constant pursuit of God. St Paul said, “I have not yet attained, neither am I yet perfect, but I press toward the mark for the prize of Christ.”

Do you feel your prayer-life is not what it could to be? If yes, these questions might help you.

You can’t change everything at once, but you can choose one new discipline mentioned here each day and work on it. Give each prayer discipline a tick when you have begun to use it.

Do you have a daily quiet time alone with God?
Do you have a ‘prayer closet’ somewhere in your home?
Do you use a specific prayer pattern as you pray?
Do you fast? Regularly?

Do you have a prayer partner?
Do you attend a group prayer meeting?
~
Do you always pray before your meals?
Do you pray daily (or regularly) with your spouse?
Do you pray together before leaving on a trip?
Do you pray daily (or regularly) with your children?
~
Do you practice spiritual warfare praying?
Do you pray with people over the phone?
Do you pray with (not just for) people about their needs?

Do you lay hands on people when you pray for them?
Do you keep a top 10 (or top 3) list of people you are praying for?
~
Do you pray out loud when you are alone?
Do you pray out loud in public, in front of others?
Do you regularly praise and sing aloud to God privately?

Do you have a prayer diary or prayer journal?
Do you keep a prayer list?
Do you record your prayer requests and answers?

Do people seek you out to pray for them?
Do people seek you out to teach them to pray?
Do you see miraculous answers to your prayers?
Do the sick recover when you pray for them?

Attending to these disciplines can enhance your experience of prayer.

Begin daily to work through this list, asking for the Lord to renew your prayer life.
