Soul Searching Sunday

Dear Lord,

Thank you for everything you have done in my life and the lives of others.  Thank you for all of the blessings that I take for granted--my health, home, family, and job--especially since there are so many people who are out of a job and searching, homeless and having to deal with horrible weather at this time of year, people with failing health or the failing health of loved ones.  Thank you for constantly being my provider--you have given me so much when so many others have so little.  Thank you for being my source of hope when I am in need.

Lord, there are so many people out there who are hurting and need your arms of love and protection wrapped around them.

I pray that the people who are going through family issues and the possibility of divorce find comfort in you Lord.  I pray that you ease their worries and remind them that they are loved-even when they don't feel so lovable in their situations. I pray that you reconcile relationships and mend the rifts between family members.

Lord, I pray for those individuals who have ailing health.  Whether it be the diagnosis of cancer, or even something as simple as a common cold, I pray that you health their infirmaries and make their immune systems stronger than before.  I pray that you touch their bodies with your healing power and cast out the sickness that is within them.

Lord, I also pray for those that are going through the battle of depression.  Help them to come to you as their source of light and hope, as you have been mine.  I pray that those individuals seek help and that you provide a way for them to beat back the shadows of oppression so that they can be rid of them from their lives.

Lord, I pray for those who are hurting financially.  I pray that you help them find a job so they are able to provide and support their families--to pay off their debits and creditors, and finally live a life of financial freedom.  I pray for those that have the stress of debt and feel suffocated by the mountain of bills they have.  I pray that you lead them through their rocky road and help them to see that you are the light at the end of their tunnel, and that you will provide so that they can stand free financially.

Lord, there are so many unspoken needs out there, but you know every single one.  Lord, you know the desires of our hearts and you long to provide your best in our lives.  Help us to be patient and discern your will so that we may be obedient to you and the path you will lead us on.

Thank you for all you have done and will do for us Lord.  Thank you for dying on the cross, so that if we accept you as our Lord and Savior, believe that you died on the cross for our sins, and confess our sins to you, that you will make us clean and holy and pure.

Lord, thank you for a beautiful day today and I pray that we all have a wonderful week ahead.  I ask all these things in your most precious name.


Do you have a prayer request or a praise report?  I am committed to praying for everyone weekly-whether by name, or anonymously and giving God the glory when He answers prayers.
