May We Pray For You?
Today we are living in desperate times. Yet, the Church is not desperate before God in Prayer.

Our Father in Heaven: Rejoice in Direct Access.
Thank the Lord for being your forgiving, Dearest Father
(Luke 15:20, Romans 8:15, Galatians 4:6).
Approach God humbly through the Blood of Jesus
(John 14:6, Romans 8:32).
He has all the power and resources of Heaven.
Hallowed Be Your Name: Reflect on All He Is to You.
Meditate on the Lord and thank Him for the ways He is working in your life as revealed by His names in His Word.
Take time to cultivate your intimate relationship through worship.
(Psalms 46:10) Jesus said, “I have declared to them Your name.”
The Lord My Shepherd, The Lord My Sanctifier, The Lord My Peace, The Lord My Healer, The Lord My Righteousness, The Lord My Present, The Lord My Provider, and The Lord My Banner.
Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done: Rule and Reign of Jesus.
To my life;
To my family (mate, children, relatives) and friends;
To my Church (Pastor, leadership, workers, congregation);
To the lost: Jerusalem (own backyard), Judea (state), Samaria (nation), uttermost parts (world).
Give Us This Day: Resources from Heaven.
Be seeking first the Kingdom.
Believe it is God’s will to provide for you.
(Psalm 37:25, Phillippians 4:19)
Be open to suffering according to His will.
(1 Peter 4:19)
Be specific and persistent.
Forgive Us Our Debts: Receiving and Forgiveness.
Ask the Lord to forgive your sins.
(1 John 1:9-10)
Ask Him to search and try your heart.
Ask for a holy hatred of sin.
(2 Corinthians 7:1-10)
As We Forgive Our Debtors: Releasing Others.
Forgive and release all those who have sinned against you.
(Ephesians 4:30-23, Matthew 18:22)
Remember, God does not give suggestions in the Bible, He commands us to forgive. (Matthew 6:14-15)
In areas you’ve been offended: Don’t curse it, Don’t nurse it; Don’t rehearse it. Don’t disperse it and God will reverse it!
Deliver Us From The Evil One: Resisting the Devil.
Begin by submitting yourself to God.
Put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh.
Put on the whole armor of God.
