Lord, the world needs You!
Haggai 2:6-7 (NIV): “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty”.
1 Timothy 2:1-4 (NIV): “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth”.
Let us be determined this week to:
Stand TOGETHER in obedience to God’s Word, and PRAY for each other and for those in leadership positions to lead us well, according to God’s will and direction! We are all given the special assignment to shine, bring hope and share our faith – with those who are close to us and with those God places on our paths. But often the table of our lives is so loaded with information and busy-ness, that we forget the importance of reaching beyond our borders, to pray for the world around us… our communities, our countries and our global leaders. Let us be intentional about growing in our prayer life, and lifting our gaze to all that is going on around us.
Call on the name of the Lord as we confidently trust in Him! May we be relentless in praying for our world and for all those who don’t yet know the Lord. It is God who holds the power to change a heart and turn a life around. He is in control no matter what happens. Today we have the opportunity to proclaim afresh that Jesus is the Lord of our lives, and to submit all – every area of our lives – to Him. He is our Savior and Lord. We can be confident that in and through His strength and wisdom, we have hope and a bright future.
LORD, THE WORLD NEEDS…
“…Your Mercy and Your Grace…”
“…Your wisdom, and Your Holy Spirit to come and give us wisdom and understanding…”
“…Repentance and revival, and salvation in Jesus Christ…”
Lord hear our prayers of faith…
“…Help each one of us to show others the way to You, to reach out and be prepared at all times…. to tell them of the hope we have in You…”
Help them to…
“…See and experience Your love through us, so that they would want to follow You… never a person, only You…”
May they experience Your…
“…Conviction and Your forgiveness…”
“…Show us how to value people as leaders…”
“…Give us Your heart; we need to see others with Your love and Your heart and Your eyes…”
“…Help us know and embrace Your Truth, so everyone can see and live Your truth…”
“…Cause those we reach out to, to know that You are true and that You are alive…”
“…Grant us Your Love and Your compassion. Help us Lord to be Your hands and Your feet, Your arms. Help us to love those that are lost…”
“…May Your Word be preached…”
“…May people experience your compassionate care, and Your light through us…”
“Lord, we want to express now that without You, we can do nothing. It was true then, and it is true now. Lord, in 2021, we ask, and we confess again, that the world needs You and without You we can do nothing.”
Father, thank You! It’s because of You that we can ask these things.
