22 Mar Prayer for John 9
Prayer for John 9
Heavenly Father, we thank you for sending your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to be the Bread of Life for the world. Forgive us for elevating earthly appetites above devotion to you. Feed us with the knowledge of Christ so that we recognize our sin and gladly repent in his name.
God, we pray for those whose daily need for healthy food, clean water and proper shelter goes un-met, and for those misusing what they have in the vain pursuit of pleasure. Forgive those that horde food and supplies instead of giving to others. Feed them with all the good things of Christ for life now and in eternity. Have mercy on those whose lives have been broken by violence and crime and disease. Feed them with hope and a new life in Christ.
God, we pray for all those infected with the corona virus. We pray that you inspire the medical professionals to create a vaccine as soon as possible. Be with those that have lost loved ones to this virus. And strengthen the doctors and nurses that care for the sick and hurting.
Today God, we pray for all those that are spiritually blind; for all those that are lost and seeking fulfillment in their lives. Help us to be the ones that reach out the lost and to the lonely. Help us, as the body of Christ to be your light of hope in our broken world.
