Prayer for Strength and Support & Emotional & Emotional Needs

Lord, We come before you today knowing that all power is in your hands. We know that you are the Lord and that you care for your people. You are the healer of the broken hearted. Right now, these people are struggling with difficult trials. We can see their strength is faltering, Lord, and know that you have all of the strength that they need. By your love and power help them move on to emotional wholeness. Cover them with your healing hand, and give them your peace. May your powerful presence make a difference in their lives as you lift each one up and carry them through difficult times.  We pray this in Jesus name.

Prayer for Those Outside our community

Grant, O God, that your holy and life-giving Spirit may so
move every human heart, that barriers which divide us may
crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our
divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace. That the evil that enters human hearts that cause horrendous events be purged.
This we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Prayer for Disasters

Holy One, you are our comfort and strength in times of sudden disaster.
Surround those that have suffered in storm, earthquake, fire or flood with your grace and peace.
Help those who are victims of natural disasters to rebuild their lives. By your Spirit, sustain those who work to rescue or rebuild, through Jesus Christ, our rock and redeemer.

Prayer for Leaders and Ministries

Dear God, We lift our leaders and ministries up to you in prayer. They need Your wisdom, direction and understanding heart. Please keep them humble and always relying upon You.  Give them the wisdom of Solomon  and direction that they need. Help them to consider information offered by others and also to come to You in prayer as they evaluate issues. We pray this in Jesus name.
