Prayers

Place of work – 25th September 2018

I pray today Lord, for my place of work. Be with all those who work there and enable us to be understanding and supportive of each other. Enable the managers to delegate work wisely and to appreciate the efforts of all the staff. Help those with the more lowly tasks especially to feel appreciated. I ask it in Jesus Christ’s name – AMEN.

Important and trivial – 24th September 2018

Lord, help me not to fret about the little things. Show me how to discern between what is important and what is trivial. Fill my mind with the wisdom to know the difference between the urgent and the important. Help me to apportion time with discretion, thoughtfulness and consideration. I ask it in Jesus Christ’s name – AMEN.

Worship with sadness – 23rd September 2018

I pray today Lord, for those people who will go to worship with sad and heavy hearts. Enable them, by your Spirit, to find comfort and even joy in the fellowship and worship of other Christian believers. May the message they hear point them to Jesus, and the prayers offered bring them to the throne of grace. I ask it in Jesus’ name – AMEN.

Celebrating birthdays – 22nd September 2018

I pray Lord for those people who are celebrating birthdays today. Help others to be kind and caring towards them and to give them some pampering. May they receive presents that they like and help them to express gratitude warmly. Keep them from being selfish. Help them to celebrate adequately. I ask it in Christ’s name – AMEN.

Responsible driver – 21st September 2018

Lord, make me a good and responsible driver on the roads. Help me always to remember that other drivers have as much right to use the roads as I do. Cause me not only to be careful but caring. Let me be especially wary of cyclists and pedestrians and particularly wide awake where there are children. I ask it in Jesus’ name – AMEN.

Good Steward – 20th September 2018

Lord, make me a good steward of the financial resources over which I have control. Help me to be careful with money and show me how to use it as an instrument of love. Help me to treasure what I get and not to get selfishly and greedily. Thank you for what you commit to my keeping. Make me generous. I ask it in Christ’s name – AMEN.

Good disciples – 19th September 2018

Lord, make me into a good disciple of Jesus Christ. Help me to be willing to learn of Jesus and to go on learning. Help me in the relationships I have with other disciples and enable me to be understanding and supportive towards the leaders in my church group. Keep me enthusiastic and full of humility and joy. I ask it in Christ’s name – AMEN.
