Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
I know that You, Almighty God, are the Fountain of All Wisdom. You are wise in every meaning of the Word. No one is more in touch with reality than You are. You completely understand cause and effect, You know the consequences of choices Your creatures make, You understand discretion, prudence, reason, and are more rational than the sum total of all creation.
Lord, help me to draw from Your wisdom. Your Word tells me that You enjoy giving Your children wisdom; we need to ask for it, cultivate it, and value it. So often the people who value wisdom are wise, while those who do not seek wisdom are typically foolish. So help me seek wisdom as You direct in Your Word, particularly with the book of Proverbs.
Lord, thank You that prayer changes me. Thank You that prayer often changes events. Although You will not grant our prayers when outside Your will, there are many things You will only give us IF we pray. So often we have not because we ask not. So today, I am asking!
Today I ask for energy. Grant me energy to get through my day, to do a good job with my responsibilities, energy to enjoy life, to serve others, and to grow in You.
I pray for my lost friends and family members, including: __________. Father, please send Your Spirit to draw them to Yourself and grant them the repentance that leads to life.
Today I pray for the small nation of Belize, bordering Mexico and Guatemala. The evangelical church has grown in numbers significantly, perhaps to fifteen percent. Yet many of the Christians are not maturing in the Lord while some of the people groups have hardly been reached. Help the Christians to support local evangelical churches, provide for fulltime workers, and reach out to some of the native American groups in the area. May the church in Belize double in size and quadruple in commitment.
Lord, today I pray for CAM missions as they seek to evangelize and disciple people throughout Central America. We thank You for their significant work throughout Central America. We pray that You would provide workers, strategy, funding, and harmony for this mission and its personnel. We pray that Your Spirit would draw growing numbers to Yourself in these areas, and that the level of spiritual maturity among these new believers would be outstanding.
We pray today for our surgeons. Although surgery is a word we would rather not hear, we pray that You would bless the efforts of these professionals as they seek to save lives.
Now, Lord, please bless my day with joy and peace, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
