Monday’s Prayer From the Pastor’s Desk

12/21/2020

Lord, we thank you for coming to earth so you could redeem us.  When we think of the extent to which you were willing to go in order to save us, it makes us want to shout, to celebrate, and to cry with thankfulness.  You loved us so much, and we are so grateful for that love.  Without you, we would still be lost and in sin. But because of everything you have done for us, today we are free; our lives are blessed; Jesus is our Lord; Heaven is our home, and Satan has no right to control us.  We will be eternally thankful to you for everything you did to save us.  We pray this prayer in Jesus’ name!  Amen

 

 

Prayer From The Pastor’s Desk

11/30/2020

Dear God our Heavenly Father:

You are the source of every blessing, the judge of every nation, and the hope of earth and heaven: We pray to you after that important election that you just led us through and the runoff election that we must go through in January for the United state senators of Georgia.

We call to mind the best that is within us: That we live under God, that we are indivisible,
that liberty and justice extend to all.

We acknowledge the sin that runs through our history as a nation: The displacement of native peoples, racial injustice, economic inequity, regional separation. And we profess a deep and abiding gratitude for the goodness of ordinary people who have made sacrifices,
who have sought opportunities, who have journeyed to this land as immigrants
and strengthened its promise in successive generations, who have found freedom on these shores, and defended this freedom at tremendous cost.

Be with us in the days that are near. Remind us that your ways are not our ways, that your power and might transcend the plans of every nation, that you are not mocked.


Let those who follow your Son Jesus Christ be a peaceable people in the midst of division.

Send your Spirit of peace, justice, and freedom upon us, break down the walls of political partisanship, and make us one.


Give us wisdom to walk in your ways, courage to speak in your name, and humility to trust in your providence. In Jesus Name we pray;


Amen.

 

Monday Prayer

11/23/2020

Heavenly Father, I call on you right now in a special way, it is through your power that we were created. Every breath we take, every morning we wake, and every moment of every hour, we live under your power.  

Father, we ask you now to touch us with that same power. For you created us from nothing, you can certainly recreate us.  Fill us with the healing power of your spirit.  Cast out anything that should not be in us.  

Mend what is broken.  Root out any unproductive cells. Open any blocked arteries or veins and rebuild any damaged areas.  Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection. Let the warmth of your healing love pass through our bodies to make new unhealthy areas so that our bodies will function the way you created them to function.

And Father, restore us to full health in mind and body so that we may serve you the rest of our lives.  We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Monday Prayer from The Pastor’s Desk

11/9/2020

God of all nations; Father of the human family; We give you thanks for the freedom we exercise and the many blessings of democracy we enjoy in these United States of America.  We ask for your protection and guidance for all who devote themselves to the common good, working for justice and peace at home and around the world. 
We lift up all our duly elected officials and public servants, those who will serve us as president, legislators, judges, law enforcement, and military personal. Heal us from Our differences and unite us, O Lord, with a common purpose, dedication, and commitment to achieve liberty and justice in the years ahead for all people, and especially those who are most vulnerable in our midst. 
In Jesus Name, Amen

Monday Prayer From The Pastor’s Desk

10/26/2020

Dear Father,
The weekend has passed and we are incredibly thankful for the rest you provided.  Whether busy or resting, you refreshed our souls. You are so good.  Help us remember that time with you propels our spirit forward, And especially today, it’s Monday, Lord.  Your Word tells us There is a time for everything; But Mondays are tough- just getting back to the grind.  Will you provide the mindset that every good and perfect gift comes from you? May we remember that Mondays are part of the gift of life. And may we embrace the day for all the opportunities you have for us.  Because we know that all things work together for good for those who love you.  And we love you, Jesus. Amen.

 

 

Monday Morning Prayer

9/28/2020

Heavenly Father, we come before you, thanking you for waking us up this Monday morning to embrace the sunlight that comes down from the heavens.
Thank you for giving us the health and strength we need to overcome every stronghold in our lives. And thank you for loving us unconditionally in the time we failed you. 

Father, we pray that your Holy Presence draws near to us.  Wrap us in your loving arms and never let us go.  Cover us under the precious blood of the lamb. Cleanse us of anything that is displeasing to you. Renew our mind, body, and soul, as we worship you and you alone. 

While this COVID 19 pandemic is raging, restore your tranquility and peace upon us so that we may not be moved.  Work from within us Lord, to bring a revival in our lives. When we feel broken, transform our spirit so we can emerge whole again.  In Jesus' name, Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday's Prayer

9/21/2020

Almighty God, as we come before you this Monday, we come, as always, with a mixture of praise and thanksgiving, joy, and concerns.  We praise your name and thank you for all our many blessings.  In this time of social distancing, we are learning to appreciate those activities in which we cannot participate and long to do so.  At the same time, we are leading (or relearning) activities which have become very meaningful for us.  We give thanks for the opportunity to connect with family and friends with whom we may have lost contact.  We are thankful for the many people who graciously reach out to us with offers of assistance.  While this is not a set of circumstances non of us would choose or could have imagined, we are thankful that, in many cases, we are able to experience the very best in persons; some of whom we barely knew before now.

 

As most of us remain sheltered in our homes, we pray your guiding presence with those who are working so hard to fight the deadly virus which has upended all our lives.  We lift to you the doctors, nurses, EMT’s, hospital administrators, attendants, persons working fervently to develop treatments and a vaccine to increase the survival rate and allow us to eventually return to our way of life without fear of contracting this disease.

 

Thank you for all the service workers; persons we may have never noticed before, who are working around the clock to help us keep food on the table; our lights, heat, and water on; our cars running; our communities safe; our mail delivered; to enable us to shop for the things we need for the safety of our homes; for drivers who deliver what we can't get for ourselves; these and so many more who work behind the scenes.  For all of those who work so we don’t need to, we give you thanks.

 

We are mindful that there are increasing numbers of persons who have lost their jobs due to the effects of the virus.  We ask that you guide us to learn who these persons are and help us find ways to help support them in their time of need.

 

As our thought turns to the prospect of, someday, opening up our churches, schools, and our economy, we ask you to grant us patience to persevere in our current situation while, at the same time, plan ahead for how we might change our living habits to safely navigate whatever our new normal might be. 

 

We lift to you all those persons currently suffering from the Coronavirus.  We pray that they might all be healed swiftly and completely.  We ask your peace and comfort for the families and friends of those who have died from the disease.  

 

We are mindful that there are others who are sick from other causes.  We pray that they might experience swift and complete healing and be able to return home soon. 

 

We pray for Shiloh and believers all over the world.  Grant us the knowledge, wisdom and courage to faithfully witness for you.

 

Lord, we commend our leaders to you, all those persons in every sector of our society who have some challenging roles to play. Please grant them the skills and abilities they need to excite their responsibilities.  

 

We pray all these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
