My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. James 1:2-3 NKJV
Sovereign God, I love You and I give You thanks and praise! You are the Most High Living God, Creator of the Universe and ALL things seen and unseen. I worship You and praise Your Holy Name! I bow my heart in humility and lift up these prayers for myself and my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus. Many of us are suffering and undergoing trials and afflictions in many different ways. It is difficult to endure these things sometimes when we’ve been languishing for long periods of time. Please God, we cry out to You as our Father. Please have mercy on us and be gracious to us. Pour out Your blessings and goodness on us and heal the wounds of our hearts. Many of us need physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing and restoration. Please hear our cries and the petitions that we’ve been bringing to You for so very long. Please Father, shine down Your glorious face upon us so that we can feel the warmth of Your glory and goodness. Give us great and glorious testimonies of Your great love and glorious power and might that we might share and encourage others and reveal You to those who don’t know You. Please give us clear direction and guidance so that we will know what to do and where to go. Please give us wisdom that we may make the right choices and speak the right things. We are Your children and apart from You we are nothing. Please hear our prayers and be gracious in Your response. I lift up these prayers and petitions to You fervently both for myself and in intercession for my brothers and sisters in Christ in His glorious and wonderful name; AMEN!
