Please revive, heal, quicken, and remove the stoppers from our ears. Take away the blinders from our eyes. Please strongly woo, draw, and rekindle us with Your fiery passion within, so that we will earnestly seek You and obey. Never want to drift, become biblical... or forget the nations, the ignorant, or the misinformed peeps You care about.
"God, I pray Thee, light these idle sticks of my life and may I burn for Thee. Consume my life, my God, for it is Thine. I seek not a long life, but a full one, like you, Lord Jesus." ~ Missionary Jim Elliot
And we also...
PRAY for right motives and attitudes, with pure thoughts. Wanna be uncompromising spiritually and compelled by Your ceaseless agape love.
PRAY for those hurting, confused, hardened and brokenhearted who live right near us!
PRAY for other believers that we know that really need Your supernatural touch today, Your refreshing Words, Your unique uplifting ministry, so that they too will be re-amped so to speak about simply knowing You and helping others.
PRAY for our family members, coworkers, and friends who used to profess you as Lord, but for some reason or another have taken a stride from Your side!
PRAY that we can, by faith, lay up treasures in Heaven, by daily giving heed to Your Word, instead of becoming distracted by lesser things.
PRAY for new strength inside, provision, and better health ..physically, emotionally, and spiritually.. so that we can serve you with godly wisdom, proper zeal and a new vibrancy.
PRAY for those who haven't yet met You, but have indeed met some carnal believers who sadly have misrepresented you with strange attitudes or words, yes, and for those who are currently angry at You and all believers because of this junk.
PRAY for those half committed believes who have one eye on this world's system to meet their needs, instead of both eyes dead-bolted on Jesus to do that providencing.
PRAY for others near us who feel indifferent towards the things of God and do not believe in You at all. Please do whatever it takes to get their attention soon, so that they won't miss out on all You graciously have waiting for them.
PRAY for those who enjoy mocking what's good, and who actively attack believers with anti-Jesus, hateful communications etc. Please stop them in their tracts so they can have at least one glance in Your direction. You did that for angry Saul who instantly became our exceedingly blessed Paul.
PRAY for the lost people around us to soon understand the Scriptures they've heard or will hear, and to grasp what we've been telling them about the Gospel and Jesus Christ, because our time here is so limited and there is so much at stake.
We want to hear "Well done," Father God. We never want to be pushy, Lord, but do want to be found blameless with zero idols.. and be found above reproach and clean as we represent you well among all who will listen ..or not listen. Thank you for the Bible that says, "Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power, that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ" (2 Thess. 1:11-12, nkjv). You can make this happen and be glorified in us. Thanks.
