Prayer diary: Thursday 28th December 2017
Today’s Bible reading: Matthew 28 16-20
Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
The whole World
See how soon the years go around!
On our last Thursday of 2017 we are looking forward to another new year.
This morning we have been remembering the work of “Thru the Bible” again and praying for people in Europe, Asia, South America and many places where Christians live in a hostile environment.
The significant point we note is that people respond to the Word of God, when it is preached and heard. We pray for more to hear and respond to the truth of God’s Word in 2018 around the whole world.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for the inspiration that You have given to evangelists and Bible teachers over the years and for the resources available to spread the truth of Your Word abroad.
Lord, we ask You to build Your Church that as many souls as possible can be saved by Your Grace. Father we lift up all that are hearing the Gospel of Christ, that their hearts may be softened, that they will accept the truth of Your Grace and Salvation, that they will turn to You and Your Son Jesus Christ for their Salvation and eternal life.
We thank You for the promises in Your Word, all of them are true and we can stand firmly upon them. Father, inspire us in 2018 as we pray for governments, for situations, for people and for all to hear and respond to Your Word.
In Jesus’ Holy Name we pray, Amen.
The threat of conflict is high in this region with all the displays and threats of military force.
Heavenly Father, we lift up this country of North Korea to You as we hope for a peaceful solution to the growing crisis.
Father, we know that with You, anything is possible, that You always have a way that we have not even thought of. Lord, we lift up the oppressed people that live in the North. We pray that they will be motivated by Your hand, rather than the hands of evil men.
We pray that Your Will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven, in faith we pray, through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
