Pray without ceasing! Share your prayers or read Our prayers

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 KJV 16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

This is a place for sharing your doubts and struggles. This is a place where you can ask for prayer or leave a prayer. Remember the prayer of a righteous person avails much! Talking to your heavenly Father should be your first thought.

James 5:13 Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises.

James 5:16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

What is Prayer?

The most basic definition of prayer is “talking to God.” Prayer is not meditation or passive reflection; it is direct address to God. It is the communication of the human soul with the Lord who created the soul. Prayer is the primary way for the believer in Jesus Christ to communicate his emotions and desires with God and to fellowship with God.

Prayer can be audible or silent, private or public, formal or informal. All prayer must be offered in faith (James 1:6), in the name of the Lord Jesus (John 16:23), and in the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:26). As the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia puts it, “Christian prayer in its full New Testament meaning is prayer addressed to God as Father, in the name of Christ as Mediator, and through the enabling grace of the indwelling Spirit” (“Prayer” by J. C. Lambert). The wicked have no desire to pray (Psalm 10:4), but the children of God have a natural desire to pray (Luke 11:1).

Prayer is described in the Bible as seeking God’s favor (Exodus 32:11), pouring out one’s soul to the Lord (1 Samuel 1:15), crying out to heaven (2 Chronicles 32:20), drawing near to God (Psalm 73:28, KJV), and kneeling before the Father (Ephesians 3:14)… more by GotQuestions

What is Fasting?

The New Testament nowhere commands followers of Jesus Christ to fast. In fact, even in the Old Testament, the Jews were only commanded to fast on one day out of the year, the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:27, 29, 32). Any religious leader who commands a fast or restricts certain foods is doing so without biblical warrant. However, Jesus sometimes fasted (Matthew 4:2), and He assumed that His followers would also fast on occasion (Matthew 6:16–18; Mark 2:20). So, if fasting is something that Christians do, what is the proper way to fast? What does the Bible say about how to fast?.. by Got Questions

Prayer for Addictive to Drugs1 Corinthians 10:13 12 If you think you are strong, you should be careful not to fall. 13 The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, he will also give you a way to escape so that you will be able to stand it.

Romans 5:1-5 1 Since we have been made right with God by our faith, we have peace with God. This happened through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 who through our faith has brought us into that blessing of God’s grace that we now enjoy. And we are happy because of the hope we have of sharing God’s glory. 3 We also have joy with our troubles, because we know that these troubles produce patience. 4 And patience produces character, and character produces hope. 5 And this hope will never disappoint us, because God has poured out his love to fill our hearts. He gave us his love through the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to us.

Lord Jesus,
Show (add name here) (he, she) does not have the strength to overcome their addiction without You. Do not let them put confidence in others or themselves. Bring them to repentance and the submission of their heart to You. Let them see that You, God, are their strength to say no. Help them to put their hope in You to get through this.

Give them eyes to see and ears to hear the work of Your mercy in their life. Lord, we ask You to intervene when the cravings come. You alone know what it will take for them to say no. We ask You Lord to show them the futility and destruction of their addiction in truth.

Heal them and open the doors for the healing of their soul and their body. According to Your will in Jesus name, Amen

Being Thankful on ThanksgivingNahum 1:7 NASB1995 The Lord is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble, And He knows those who take refuge in Him.

The times we live in are days of trouble. These are uncertain and perilous days that have spread worldwide. We are watching the world come apart at the seams and our hearts grow weary. There is loss on every front for many this holiday season.

But God’s love and goodness has not changed toward those who love Him. We who have been called know all our suffering will be made for good and His glory. Our hearts yearn to be home where there is no death, sorrow, tears, or suffering in our future home. Sin will no longer exist. Our worship and love toward God will truly be in “spirit and truth.”

Until then eyes up and hearts thankful.

Psalm 136:1-7 NASB1995 1 Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. 2 Give thanks to the God of gods, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. 3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. 4 To Him who alone does great wonders, For His lovingkindness is everlasting; 5 To Him who made the heavens with skill, For His lovingkindness is everlasting; 6 To Him who spread out the earth above the waters, For His lovingkindness is everlasting; 7 To Him who made the great lights, For His lovingkindness is everlasting:

We confess our sins and the sins of our nation which we have committed against You alone. God bring those who are Yours to true repentance. Heavenly Father, help us to rejoice as we put our trust in You. Give us a heart to love Your holy name and be joyful in You. You are our shield and defender.

Guide us Holy Spirit in the ways and steps of Christ. Give us boldness to profess Your word of Truth. We will choose to surrender our life to You daily in order to grow closer to You heavenly Father.

We have determined to know nothing except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. And the greatness of Your power to us who believe. The great power and strength that raised Christ from the dead.

Worshipping The CreatorWe ask for forgiveness of our idolatry. Loving ourselves and lusting after the ways of the world. We turned from worshipping the Creator to worshipping the created. Hear the plea of Your children.

Comfort those who seek Your kingdom first. The Lord, our Shepherd, help us not to fear in this time of great turmoil. Lead us in Your wisdom. Give us wisdom, knowledge, and the courage to know what to do. And then stand for Your righteousness for the sake of Your glory.

Your remnant is eagerly awaiting Your coming for Your bride. As we look, keep our hearts and minds stayed on the task at hand. Speaking Your truth and in truth, against the lies.

We give You thanks that You provide our needs. Lord Jesus Christ, we give thanks that You made a way for us to be able to come boldly to the throne of grace to find mercy and help in our time of need.

When we are afraid, we will trust in the Lord.

Come Lord Jesus, Amen

Coach Kennedy a step closer to vindication"First Liberty Institute is representing Coach Joe Kennedy in his case against Bremerton High School that has been up and down the court system for years. He was fired for breathing private prayers on the field after football games. Most recently, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the school.

Berry, Michael (First Liberty)Berry
"The Ninth Circuit's decision really hinged on the fact that Coach Kennedy was a public school employee and that if people in the stands or in the public in general could see him praying, then somehow they might interpret that as the government formally establishing religion, as ridiculous as that sounds," explains attorney Mike Berry of First Liberty Institute"... read full article

Please keep Coach Kennedy in prayer.

Lord we pray for Coach Kennedy. Thank you Lord he has the courage to stand. We pray you provide peace and strength needed during this time. Pray for wisdom and the peace that surpasses understanding. May hearts be receptive. The time is coming and we are running out of it.

US National Day of Prayer on May 5th"(Worthy News) – Millions of Americans will pray for their nation on the annual National Day of Prayer (NDP) on Thursday, May 5, CBN News reports. A 90-minute broadcast program hosted by the NDP Task Force together with Prayer.com will be live-streamed and will feature Christian pastors and musicians.

Established as a day set aside to pray for the nation, the NDP is observed on the first Thursday in May: the day was instituted by a joint resolution of Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman in 1952... "

"What is the National Day of Prayer? --- The National Day of Prayer is a day of religious observance in the United States of America in which people are called upon to pray for their country. The first official day of prayer in the U.S. was in 1775, when the Continental Congress called for the public to fast and pray for the leadership of the Colonies. After that time, Presidents periodically called the nation to pray during times of war or other hardships. In 1952, Conrad Hilton (founder of Hilton Hotels) and Senator Frank Carlson of Kansas, encouraged by Billy Graham, initiated a bill calling for the President to designate one day a year as a National Day of Prayer. In 1952, President Harry Truman signed a joint resolution into law; the original wording reads as follows.. by Got Questions"

LHWM Prayer -- Lord we come to you with a broken heart. So much is happening, from murdering innocent babies to teaching our children evil at such a young age.

The bible tells us: "Matthew 18:6 KJV But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."

We repent of our nation. We have turned our back on you and no longer seek your face. Lord I pray eyes are opened, hearts are receptive and they hear themselves speak and except the truth about themselves.

Give us courage to stand in your grace and mercy. Give us wisdom to know the TRUTH! Guide our steps and teach us your will.

Our hearts ache for you Lord Jesus. Please won't you come soon!

In Jesus name, Amen
