Father in the name of Jesus. Lord we thank you for this day. We thank you for keeping us and protecting us in this crooked and crazy world.
Oh My Father, I thank you for the opportunity to approach your throne. I humbly ask that you would hear this prayer. Most schools are on a break to enjoy the summer. However, it is also a time of year when we see chaos in our community. Lord tragedy has struck my city, as has I’m sure most around the land; for this is all indicative of the times that we live.
I realize that you said if we turned from our own selfish ways, humbled ourselves and prayed, and sought you, you would heal the land. I also recognize that Jesus did not pray for the world, but that you oh Father, would keep those who are yours and who are not of the world. Lord help us! Help us. Help us to keep one another accountable. Help us to prevent our brothers and sisters from giving in to temptation. Give us the strategy to not only meet people where they are, but also to pull them out of the fire that is a result of sin, and into the arms of you. It seems like every week, one of my children, except my baby, are waking up from dreams, asking me to explain the meaning behind them. What they do not recognize is that you even sent a warning through them, that the end times are near.
We need you! I realize that I cannot live in this present world without you. It is time for us to make sure we communicate and live this message everyday and everywhere!
Keep us. Prepare us. Cover us. Help us. Listen to us. Take us. Send us. Teach us. Strengthen us. Comfort us. I do not have to ask for you to love us, because you’ve proven that you already have done and that you are doing that.
I humbly ask that you accept this prayer. In Jesus name, amen.
“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”II Chronicles 7:14 NKJV
