April 29: A Prayer for Emotional Healing for Those Who Are Overcoming the Death of a Loved One

Redeeming Father, we thank You for the emotional healing of those whose loved one(s) have gone on to be with You.  Thank You for the impact that they had on their lives.  Thank You, Jesus, for leaving them with a gift – Your peace of mind and heart.  We are thankful to You and we bless Your Name.  Father, we give thanks to You and proclaim Your greatness. The whole world shall know what You have done. We will sing praises to You.  We will tell every one of Your wonderful deeds.  You are our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.  We will sing to You as long as we live. We will praise You to our last breath!

Merciful Father, we decree emotional healing for those who are overcoming the death of a loved one. Although they are grieving, they will put their hope in You, God! They will praise You again – as their Savior and their God!  Father, they will trust Your Word.  We declare that You are with them; they will not be discouraged, for You are their God. Your Word says that You will strengthen them and help them. You will hold them up with Your victorious right hand. Your Name, Lord, is a strong fortress; the Godly run to You and are safe. We decree that bereavement will last only for a short time and joy will replace sorrow.

Holy Spirit, help me to become more sensitive to the needs of those around me who are in mourning and show me how I can be an encouragement to them:

 

 

 

Holy Spirit, when we see our brother or sister mourning the death of a loved one, help us to be compassionate, but also to encourage him or her with God’s Word of hope and peace. Bring scriptures to our remembrance that will help to bring solace to our brother or sister.  Remind us to care for the physical needs of those who are in mourning, with food, transportation, child care or any other material thing that may be needed. Help us to be patient and to not be insensitive to their pain. Holy Spirit, when we are grieving as well, comfort us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.

Gracious Father, when others are grieving, forgive us for being impatient as time goes on after a death. Forgive us when we utter unkind words, making light of someone else’s pain at the death of a loved one. Forgive us for not taking care of the physical or emotional needs of others who have suffered loss. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind those who are overcoming the death of a loved one of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Almighty God, the heavens proclaim Your glory! The skies display Your craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night, they make You known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard, yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

March 30: A Prayer for Health Care in the United States

Glorious Father, we thank You for the blood of Jesus which covers us and protects us from harm, including disease. Thank You for blessing our nation with the best medical care in the world. Thank You for being the Lord who heals!  Lord, we will sing of Your unfailing love forever!  Young and old will hear of Your faithfulness.  Your unfailing love will last forever.  Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.  All of heaven will praise Your great wonders, myriads of angels will praise You for Your faithfulness.  Who in all of heaven can compare with You, Lord?  What mightiest angel is anything like You?  The highest angelic powers stand in awe of You.  You are far more awesome than all who surround Your throne!

 

Redeeming Father, we commit the American Health Care system to You and command justice to run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream for the American people.  We thank You for every health care professional and declare that they will seek Your wisdom and knowledge and always pursue excellence in their chosen fields. They will be dedicated to the proper care and treatment of their patients and they will remember to show their patients mercy, just as You have shown mercy to them. Lord, You detest the use of dishonest scales, but You delight in accurate weights.  So we rebuke the spirits of greed and injustice within the insurance industry that has prevented many Americans from being able to afford quality health coverage that will meet their family’s needs without bankrupting their budget.  Your Word admonishes that everything should be done properly and in order so we command the American health care system to line up with Your Word now, in Jesus’ Name.

 

List your concerns about the American Health Care System.  Now take those concerns to the Lord in prayer:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Spirit, please give the uninsured the wisdom and direction as they navigate through the Affordable Care Act and help them to find coverage that will meet their budget.  Show business owners new ways to generate increased revenue to cover the cost of offering health insurance to their employees.  Lord, we ask that the wait times for appointments at the VA Hospital will be shortened and that each veteran will be treated with dignity and respect.  Holy Spirit, we ask that You give our government officials the wisdom on how to cut down on the redtape that ensnares so many veterans from receiving all of the medical benefits they are entitled to. Lord, touch the hearts of the pharmaceutical companies so that they will make needed medications affordable to all Americans.  Lord, we cry out for Your intervention and guidance in Jesus’ Name.

 

Loving Father, forgive us as a nation for our many sins.   Lord, forgive us for creating a society that allows such a wide disparity between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots.’  Forgive us for greed, arrogance, lack of empathy and compassion, and selfishness.   Forgive us for not making a healthy lifestyle a priority.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation; but deliver us all from the evil one.

 

Glorious King, Your eternal Word stands firm in heaven.  Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth You created.  Your regulations remain true to this day, for everything serves Your plans.  You are the mighty King, the lover of justice; You established fairness.  You have acted with justice and righteousness throughout Israel.  We exalt You Lord, our God and bow low before Your feet for You are Holy!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Almighty Father, we thank You for providing for Your children, during these tough economic times.  Thank You for being the source of our supply.  We thank You for taking care of us and supplying all of our needs from Your glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.  Father, You created the heavens and the earth and everything in it.  You give breath to everyone and life to everyone who walks the earth.  We will praise Your mighty deeds, O Sovereign Lord.  We will tell everyone that You alone are just.  We praise You, Lord!  Father God, we are joyful because we fear You, Lord, and delight in obeying Your commands.  We are blessed to be Your children.

Heavenly Father, we expect business leaders in our community to honor Your Word and live by Your precepts.  We command light to shine in the darkness for the Godly.  We declare that they are generous, compassionate, and righteous.

March 12: A Prayer for Employment in the United States

Awesome Father, we thank You for providing employment for us, Your children.  Thank You for sustaining those who are in need of a financial breakthrough.  Thank You for helping them daily.  Thank You, for being our source and our supply.  Holy and righteous is Your Name.  You are a great God, and a great King above all other gods.  You are our God; and we are the people of our pasture, and the flock under Your care.  Lord, You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth.  You are our strength and shield, and we trust in You.  You help us and our hearts are filled with joy.  We burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

Holy Father, it is Your will that Your children live healthy, productive, happy, and balanced lives. We confess that as those people who are seeking employment place their trust in You and do good; they will live safely in the land and prosper.  They will never let loyalty and kindness leave them.  They will tie them around their necks as a reminder; and write them deep within their hearts.  Then they will find favor with both You and men, and they will earn a good reputation.  Lord, we declare that they will trust in You with all their hearts; and not depend on their own understanding.  They will seek Your will in all that they do, and we believe that You will show them which path to take.  In Jesus’ Name, we command the doors of employment to open for our unemployed.  We declare that when they receive employment, they will work as if You are their direct supervisor.  They will not talk back or steal, but will show themselves to be entirely trustworthy and good. They will respect authority, walk in integrity and complete a full day’s work for a full day’s pay.

If you know someone who is unemployed or who wants new employment, write down their names and insert their names into this prayer: 

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Righteous Father, help those who are unemployed to prepare for their new job.  Send people who will consult with them about how to prepare a resume and how to dress and prepare for an interview. Remind them that because they trust in You, they will not lack any good thing.  Holy Spirit, please help them to not grow discouraged or frustrated, but help them to continue to remain hopeful and expect their breakthrough to come forth.  Father, some need a miracle right now.  Please help them.  Holy Spirit, for those who have a poor work ethic, help them to improve.   Erase any negative perception caused by past work experiences.  Holy Spirit, help stretch their income until employment is found.

Merciful Father, forgive those people who demonstrate a poor work ethic.  Forgive them for not being on time, leaving early, and wasting time.  Forgive those who have not paid their tithes and offerings (consistently), or spent their money unnecessarily.  Forgive those for misusing company property.  Forgive those who have operated in arrogance, greed, lust, pride, arrogance, and rebellion.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind those people who are seeking employment to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help them not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the nations.  Who can be compared to You?  Who is Your equal?  Lord, You are high above all nations.  Your glory is above the heavens.  Yours is the Kingdom, power, and glory forever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

March 10: A Prayer for Healthy Pregnancies and Healthy Babies

Gracious Father, we thank You for being the source of life.  Thank You for every expectant mother in our congregation.  Thank You for every child that has been born.  Father, we praise You.  We, who serve in Your house, praise You.  Lord, You are good; we celebrate Your lovely Name with music.  We know Your greatness, Lord; You are greater than any other god.  You do whatever pleases You throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in the depths.  We sing praises to Your Name.  Every day we proclaim the good news that You save!

Omnipotent Father, our Creator, we declare that the children who are born are healthy and well loved. Lord, You knit them together in their mother’s womb.  We declare that each baby is wonderfully made. Your workmanship is marvelous!  You made all of their delicate, inner parts. Today, we confess that every baby in utero has exactly 46 chromosomes and they will develop without defect or deformity.  We declare that every cell, muscle, tissue and organ will develop according to Your divine purpose and plan.  We decree that mothers will carry their babies to full term. We destroy every demonic assignment against our unborn, including the assignment of premature birth. In Jesus’ Name, we proclaim that there will be no miscarriages or infertility in our congregation.  We proclaim that sickness and disease, including SIDS, autism, Down Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, juvenile diabetes, cancer, dyslexia, and all other childhood diseases or dysfunctions, have no legal right to inhabit our children because God is their Shepherd and Shield.

Holy Spirit, help me to pray strategically for the following families who are expecting a child:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask You to increase Your wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in every expectant mother.  Remind them to get the proper rest and nutrition.  Lord, watch over each expectant mother and keep her body healthy.  Provide a support network of family and friends who will help them during and after their pregnancies.  Strengthen the minds, bodies and spirits of parents who have children with special needs.  Comfort and encourage those parents who have experienced a miscarriage.  For those couples who desire to have children, but have been unable to conceive, we ask that You would help them to not be anxious, but to trust You that in the ordained time and season, they will bring forth a child for Your glory.

 

Holy Father, please forgive our parents and expectant parents for any acts of sinfulness.  Forgive those who have committed fornication or adultery.  Forgive parents for stubbornness, quick tempers and lack of patience.  Forgive them for not seeking help when they are feeling anxious, depressed, fretful, angry or overwhelmed.   Forgive us for not offering more support to our parents.  Forgive us for the times when we have been insensitive to those families who have children with special needs.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help our parents not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Eternal God, You are greater than we can understand.  Your years cannot be counted.  You draw up the water vapor and distill it into rain.  Only You know where light comes from and where darkness goes.  You direct the movement of the stars, binding the cluster of the Pleiades and loosening the cords of Orion. Holy and triumphant is Your Name!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

February 13: A Prayer Regarding Unpleasant Work Environments

Glorious Father, we thank You for the blessing of employment.  Thank You for Your favor that surrounds Your children like a shield.  Thank You for Your goodness and mercy which follow closely behind us.  Lord, Your Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations.  You always keep Your promises; You are gracious in all that You do.  You help the fallen and lift those bent beneath their loads.  The eyes of all look to You in hope; You give them their food as they need it.  When You open Your hand, You satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.  We bless and praise Your holy Name!

Almighty Father, we declare that Your Word will be operative in the lives of our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments.  We confess that as they commit their works to You, their plans will succeed. Holy Spirit, we declare that our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments will yield to Your leading and guidance so that they will be empowered to be light in the midst of their dark work environment. They are peacemakers in contentious situations so they will be blessed. Lord, we confess that they will walk uprightly and do what is right so no good thing will be withheld from them. We decree that as employers treat their employees and customers with dignity, fairness and respect; they will be blessed as they endure persecution for doing what is right.

Holy Spirit, I will declare the following scriptural blessing for my employer:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, please fill our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments with Your wisdom, understanding, counsel, and power.  Give them dreams and visions that exceed their expectations and provide them with the resources they need to successfully accomplish Your purpose(s) for them.  As they perform their assigned tasks, help them to always work as unto You. Holy Spirit, help them to be peacemakers in their work environment and to not participate in any negative conversations or behaviors.  Father, help their supervisors and managers to communicate and write down the mission, vision and job descriptions and make them plain to their employees so that they can implement it.  Help our Church Family members to not grow weary while doing well at their jobs and remind them that they will reap a harvest of blessings if they do not give up.

Merciful Father, forgive the employees and employers who work in unpleasant environments for all acts of sinfulness.  Forgive those who have not been diligent in seeking Your guidance and leadership in their work places.  Forgive those who do not trust in You, but lean to their own understanding.  Forgive those who have compromised Your Word in order to make a profit.  Forgive those employers who have not treated their employees and customers fairly.  Forgive those who have not properly taken care of or shown respect for one another.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Eternal King, You are the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth.  You never grow weak or weary.  No one can measure the depths of Your understanding.    In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

February 9: A Prayer for Our Mature Adults

Gracious Father, we thank You for our mature adults.  Thank You for the wisdom and knowledge that they share with us.  Thank You for providing for their spiritual, emotional, financial and physical need.  Your Name, O Lord, endures forever; Your fame is known to every generation.  You are righteous in everything that You do; You are filled with kindness.  You are close to all who call upon You in truth.  You grant the desires of those who fear You; You hear their cries for help and rescue them.  We praise You, Lord; may everyone on earth bless Your holy Name forever and ever.

Eternal Father, we confess that the older men in our Church Family will exercise self-control, are worthy of respect and live wisely.  They have strong faith and are filled with love and patience.  We declare that our older women are honorable and righteous.  They are not slanderous or heavy drinkers.  Instead, we confess that they will teach others what is good; they will train the younger women in our Church Family to love their husbands and their children, to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands.  We decree that our older men are models of God’s strength and faithfulness, and they will teach our young men to respect authority, provide for their wives and children, live wisely, lead with compassion and fairness, and love their wives like Christ loves the church. We declare that our mature adults will continue to flourish like palm trees and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon.  Even in old age, they will still produce fruit and remain vital and green.

Write down the names of mature adults that you know.  Now, write down ways that you can enrich or bless their lives:

Holy Spirit, we know that some of our mature adults are lonely; please help us as a Church Family to reach out to them and surround them with the love of the Father.  Impress upon their family members to come and visit them and spend quality time with them.  Please help us to identify those seniors who have isolated themselves and show us how to meet their needs effectively.  Lord, many of our mature adults have worked hard all of their lives and some of them have seen their retirement funds depleted.  Please open up new revenue streams so that they will not have to struggle or go without financially.  Father, protect them from those who would try to prey upon them with get-rich-quick schemes, unnecessary mediation, predatory loans or any other schemes to steal from them.  Increase their discernment and wisdom when they make decisions, especially where their health and finances are concerned.  Remind our younger generations to regard our mature adults with honor and respect.

 

Merciful Father, forgive us as a nation for disregarding and disrespecting our mature adults.  Forgive us for viewing them as feeble and disposable. Forgive those mature adults who don’t depend completely upon You, but look at their circumstances.  Forgive those who have allowed life to cause them to grow bitter and angry.  Forgive those who do not check on or intentionally do not spend time with their older relatives. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our mature adults of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, remind our mature adults to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Lord, there is no one like You!  You are great, and Your Name is full of power. Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? That title belongs to You alone! All glory majesty, power and authority are Yours before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
