Lord, in Jesus' name I come before You in humility and thankfulness and praise You for the gifts that You have given. Lord, thank You for Your Son Who You gave for our redemption. Thank You for His obedience unto the cross. Lord, thank You for the freedom to worship You in Spirit and in truth. I pray for our brothers and sisters in countries that do not have this freedom of worship. I pray that You strengthen and protect them. I pray for the martyrs who have gone before us, for those who have held open the door for our understanding. I thank You for those who have died to further the cause of the cross. Thank You for the service men and women who are fighting and have given their lives for our freedom. I pray for Your peace to flood the earth, and bring together the nations in Your name. Thank you for the blessings that You have provided to me, I pray that You guide me in using them to bless others. Lord, I pray for the hungry and cold, that You use my hands and heart to reach out to them. I pray that the spirit of generosity flows from Your people and floods the dryness of the world. Lord, I pray for those who have lost loved ones and must go on without them. I pray that you comfort them and cover their hearts. I pray for those who are ill and lonely, I pray that You fill them with health and joy. Father thank You, I love You and praise You. Please hear my prayer. Heal us, Lord and we shall be healed. Thank You for loving us in our weak and sinful state. Thank You. Amen.
