I AM PRAYING FOR THE CHURCH:
Our heavenly Father, we come to You in Jesus’ name asking for peace in the church. Bless our Church leaders to honor You in all that they do. Bless the Holy Spirit to be allowed to led the leaders of all Churches. Your Word says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” II Chronicles 7:14. We humble ourselves under Your almighty hands as we pray seeking Your face for answers in the Church today. Bless us to continue to turn from all ways that is not pleased to You in Jesus’ name. Thank You Lord, for hearing our prayers as You have promised in Your Word. We do ask for You to forgive our wrong doings, our unbelief, and all that is sin in Your sight. Please help us the Church to obey You in all we do; Your Word says, obedient is better than sacrifice. Please help the Church of Christ to stand up for righteousness, and not give into what man think is right. Help us to become serious in our watching and praying. Help us to love one another with a pure heart, and help us to sit our minds on things above, and not on things here on earth. We pray this prayer in Jesus’ name, amen.
“Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.”
“For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.”(2 Chronicles 7:15-16),
‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.”
Our Loving Father, We believe that the Church is the body of Christ founded on the rock that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God. The Scripture says that neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who increases. Relying on this promise, Father, we enter into Your presence, for the growth of our Church. As the Living Word says, “Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it”, we are totally helpless. Apart from You, we can do nothing. We beseech You, Lord, to pour out Your life-giving Spirit and Your enabling power upon the Church in an abundant measure and thus, bring about a total revival in the Church. Purge away all the sins, iniquities and uncleanness from the Church. Let Your ears be open towards all the prayers that come to You from this Church, day and night. May it be pleasing to You Lord, as a sweet incense before You. Let Your glory cover this Church. Father God, place Your mighty outstretched hands on every member and the leaders of the Congregation. Let the gift of prophecy operate in our Church Lord so that Your Word which says “but he who prophesies edifies the church” may be realized in the Church. Help us to be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. Father, let Your grace always abide. In Jesus’ most precious name, we pray. Amen.
