And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Philippians 4:8 NLT
Father God, I love You and I give You thanks and praise! You and You alone are worthy of all glory, honor, and praise! Without You I am nothing and I am reliant on You for everything, even the air that I breathe and the beating of my heart. I bow at Your feet worshiping You and asking once again for Your mercies and grace. I lift up my brothers and sisters in Christ to You as well, that You will recognize and honor these prayers for all of us. Many of us are going through dark times of suffering, hardships, and afflictions. We are lonely and hurt, and in deep need of Your love, affections, and of Your healing and soothing grace. Please hear our prayers and bring us the healing, restoration, deliverance, provision, blessings, good gifts, and fulfillment of Your promises that we seek. May these good things bring us comfort, healing, and give us strength. May our faith be bolstered that we might become bold and courageous; having testimonies of Your miraculous power, majesty, and glory to share with others both to strengthen our brothers and sisters and to show those who don’t know You Your love, compassion, and affections for us. In the good things that You have for us may we remember to reflect Your light into this dark world. Deliver us, O’ God from evil and from the evil one who prowls around seeking death and destruction. Overshadow us, Sovereign God, with Your protection and might and keep us from temptation and this evil. Make us into beacons of Your light and may it spread as wildfire throughout our homes, communities, and into all the world. Yahweh God, You are the creator of the universe and all things seen and unseen. Through my belief in Your Son Christ Jesus and through the reconciliation and cleansing of His blood in His death and resurrection into life I am your son and we are Your children. Hear our prayers and move Your hand mightily and in a glorious way for all to see. I petition You now and pray these things in the name of Your Son who is my Savior and Lord Jesus Christ; AMEN!
