I pray today Lord for those people who think that getting rich is the main purpose of living. Help them to see beneath the surface of life. Show them the vastness of “the unsearchable riches of Christ”, and lead them to seek a more meaningful purpose for living. Help them to find joy, love and peace in Christ. I ask it in his name – AMEN.

I ask it in Christ’s name – AMEN.
I pray today Lord for those people becoming grandparents. Enable them to experience joy and pride with the arrival of a new child in their family circle.

Lord, today is Sunday, and it’s a day of rest and gladness. Help me to connect with you and with my fellow Christian believers in fellowship, worship and celebration. Let it be a time of renewal, growth and learning. Let your Holy Spirit fill me anew and point me to Christ. Deepen my dedication. I ask it in the name of Christ Jesus – AMEN.
