Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
Oh Father God,
Thank You that Your love is everlasting. You do not grow weary or tired, and I will experience Your loving presence and blessing throughout eternity. Your love has no quotas. It does not need to be conserved or rationed. Even though you already shower me with Your love, heaven will be so much greater!
Lord, thank You that Your Spirit dwells within my heart, my inner being. Thank You that he has written Your Law upon my heart. Thank You also that He wants to produce His fruit in my life: help me cultivate His fruit-producing ministry by walking closely with You, confessing known sin, and trusting in Your strength.
Dear God, I pray that You would give me tact in relating to others today. Help me to speak tactfully, to write tactfully, and to conduct myself with consideration to others.
Help my church’s leaders to be true to the Word of God, to walk closely with You, and to help nurture a godly harmony and unity: not the unity of surrendering truth, but the unity that comes from a common faith and trust in the main truths of Your Word.
Father, I have many requests to make, a few of which are: __________.
Today I remember the persecuted church. I think of countries like Sudan, China, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, and Viet Nam, to name some of the worst. Please, Lord, change laws and attitudes so that this persecution would stop. Help the believers to evade persecution, when possible. Help them to stand firmly when they cannot evade it. I pray that their persecutors would be won to the faith, and that one day, Christians everywhere would be free to share their faith and live the Christian life without fear.
I remember the ministry of Voice of the Martyrs, and I pray that You would provide for them in every way. Give them wisdom, direction, finances, and harmony so that they would effectively serve the persecuted church.
May your blessing be upon all Emergency Medical Technicians as they save lives and provide emergency treatment. Help them get to the medical scenes safely and quickly, may they act wisely, and prosper their work, I pray.
As I go on my way, help me to walk with You and depend upon You today, I pray, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
