A Prayer To God For All Of Us

Dear Lord,
Thank you for this day, and all that you have given to us. Thank you that you are a mighty God of grace and mercy, and that your favor is on us. Lord, there are no gods that stand up to you or share in your glory. You are the highest and most powerful.

Father, thank you for being a faithful God; a God who is faithful to accept us, even though we are sinners; a God who is faithful to forgive us and lift us up out of the dark pits we’ve fallen into; and, a God who is faithful to provide for our needs.

Lord God, thank you for sending your Son to give us life. Thank you, Jesus, for your obedience to the Father and for your infinite love for us. Thank you that through you, we can live an eternally abundant life in the Kingdom that has been prepared for us.

Holy Spirit, thank you for being a faithful Helper to us. Thank you that we can call on you in a moment’s notice and you are ready and willing to help us and plead our case before the Father. Thank you, Holy Spirit, that you are working in each of us to mold us into useable vessels, to give us spiritual eyes to see, spiritual ears to hear, and to even teach us how to pray in the Spirit.

Thank you, Father God, for the authority we have through Jesus in us, to stand firm against the attacks of the enemy; that we can call on the Name of Jesus to drive out the harmful and destructive forces that come against us constantly. Thank you that we can walk confidently in a shaken society; that no economy can prevent your provision and blessing; that no authority on earth can prevent you from having a personal relationship with each of us; and, that even though Satan and all his workers are a powerful force in this world, that you still save the souls of thousands each day!

Lord God, I lift up all my brothers and sisters to you now; especially, those who feel weak and powerless against the forces of the enemy; those who are overwhelmed with difficulties, sickness, and tragedy, that you would reach out your healing hand to them. Lord, please meet them exactly where they’re at, and that you would give them strength, assurance, and a solid and overwhelming peace in the midst of their toughest struggles.

Lord, I believe you are in control of our nations and the Governing authorities, even when it doesn’t seem so. Lord, I also believe that, in you, we can have a joy that is found nowhere else. And, Lord, I believe that your plans for each and every one of us will prevail.

Thank you, Father God, in Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
