  1. Dear Lord, let us look to your creation and Nature, see the leaves change colour, colours reflecting your glory, and understand how seasons are needed (in most earthly places). Things on this earth are temporary and only sometimes can we glimpse your glory. You remain in control of it all. Help us to use those occasional glimpses of your glory to keep persevering when things are tough for us. Thank you for being ever present.

  2. Praise, Lord, that your Kingdom is not a political kingdom and that nothing on earth can thwart your sovereign will. Earthly kings will come and go, but You are the One King who rules forever – the Alpha and the Omega. Let us love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, and strength and let us love each other as we love ourselves. This is the greatest commandment. Let us pray for our leaders and for each other.

  4. I pray for our nation. May healing begin that allows us to move forward in unity.

    I pray for the all those who have been impacted and continue to be impacted by the pandemic. I pray for the scientists and doctors that will bring earthly healing. I pray for you, Lord, to bring comfort to the families of those who lost their loved ones and suffered economically or otherwise. I pray that people will make smart decision to protect their health and the health of others.

    Lord, we are grateful for your presence.

  5. “our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name…” May we all remember who is in charge, our Lord and Savior. As we humble ourselves and pray, know that He listens and is always with us. He calms the raging seas and storms. He is our ALL.
    Praise Him. Amen

Encourage each woman, as well as strengthen them for the journey that lies ahead in this month and the remainder of 2020. May they be a blessing in the lives of the people they meet each day. May they be filled with the Holy Spirit as they shine out for Jesus. Give them grace to be Bold and mercy to be kind, even when others are unkind. Wrap Your arms of Peace around them, that they would feel Your presence and know that You. Are. God! You are Sovereign, You are Mighty, You are the Conqueror over death and hell and sin.

  11. May your mighty hand guide us in all our choices and decisions. Teach us how to forgives as you forgive us. Protect us from those who seek to kill, steal, and destroy. Guide us to minister to your word, to exercise bravery, courage, and abundant faith in the midst of tremendous opposition and warfare. Strengthen and encourage us to remain a light and guide to your loving, warm, patient, nurturing, empathetic embrace to a world desperate for your love, yet does know not how to receive it.

  14. Father God, help us to feel Your peace. Everything is under Your control, nothing happens unless it passes through Your hands first. Please comfort us with this truth today. May we truly love You with all of our hearts, souls and all of our strength. May we love all people, even those we disagree with, how You love us. We can not do this in our own strength, we need You God, Your strength in us and Your love to shine through us. God bless our president and vice president to love You, Father God. God bless them to do Your will and to be a blessing to this world. Calm our minds and fill us with Your peace and love. You are in control. In Jesus’ Name, amen! ❤️

  15. For the sick and the homeless, that you may provide health father God and shelter in this cold season.
    I pray that their eyes would be upon you lord, seeking refuge.
    Give them peace, unlike anything they have experienced, that it would bring all to their knees to call out to you oh lord. In Jesus name ,AMEN

  16. Let get into prayer every day. Remember the prayer our Lord prayed. The Lord’s prayer. What it says is so true. If we don’t know what else to pray. We can pray that prayer. Matthew 6 verses 9-13 it goes like this
    Our Father in heaven
    Hallowed be your name,
    Your kindgom come.
    Your will be done
    One earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    As we forgive our debtors.
    And do not led us into temptation.
    But deliver us from the evil one.
    For Yours is the kindgom and the power and glory forever. Amen. (From extreme word NKJV)
    What more could we want to say when we don’t know what else to pray. But just pray the Lord’s prayer. It says it all. I say Amen to that. Thank you incourage for another excellent reading today. Keeping you all in my prayers. Dawn Ferguson-Little xxxxx

  17. Beautiful prayers! Thank you God for hearing these/our prayers for Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven! Amen!

  18. Let us understand, Lord, that we are worthy of love and belonging in our daily lives through the sacrifice of Crist.

  19. In Courage,

    Abba Father,

    I come to you today asking for a revival. Our country needs to get back to its roots. People are always trying hard to leave Jesus out & that’s why we are in this mess. God we desperately need you & your guidance. Send your healing peace & calm to this frantic noisy world. Help this world see you working in their lives daily. Give us a holy fire burning in our hearts to pray like never before. There is so much sickness in our world today. Bring an end to this pandemic & heal our broken bodies. This world is almost turning into Sodom & Gomorrah. Everyone doing as they please. It is getting hard to be a Christian down here yet we persevere for your name’s sake. Help us endure a little longer till you come back.


    Blessings 🙂

  20. Lord, I pray for everyone affected by the pandemic, I pray for their healing. I pray for people affected by addictions, I pray they are able to heal and overcome their addictions whatever they may be. I pray that your love and grace will be spread around the world to erase the hate and fear that appears to be out in the world today. I pray Lord during this holiday season and all throughout the year we can show each other more kindness and compassion because we can never have too much of that. We love you Lord and as always our trust is in You.

  21. Heavenly Father, please help us each put aside our agendas and really listen to our neighbors. Let us love as you do. Please show us ways that we can be your hands and feet on earth.
    In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

  22. Lord, I pray for those who don’t yet know you. For the women in our neighborhoods and coworkers we might never speak to. For the kids at our local high schools and leaders of our cities. Jesus, draw them to yourself. Make your goodness and faithfulness known in a way that those wandering can’t deny your power and presence. Make us — my (in)courage sisters and I — lights in this dark world. Speak Holy Spirit and give us ears to listen and feet ready to respond. Empower us to speak truth boldly, gently, and love without fear or timidity. Show us today, tomorrow, the next day, EVERY day, how to live and love like you do. Your kindgom come on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.
