A Prayer for Encouragers - Weekly Prayer

Prayer: Lord, our prayer this week is that You would raise up encouragers among us. We pray for men and women to boldly stand and shine Your light of love in our darkened communities. Lord, we pray for any conflicts we might be involved in that You would help us find the peaceful solution. That in working through these problems You would help us support each other and demonstrate love. We pray that ultimately Your name would be praised and glorified in our homes, in our communities, and in our country. In Jesus’ name, amen.

As you pray, meditate on these words from 1 Thessalonians 5:11-15.

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.”

We Look Forward To Praying With You: 🙏🙏

Omnipotent Father God, Abba , through Your endless Love and mercy You have for your children here on earth, and because You became human like us you understand perfectly how frail and sinful we ALL are. Darkness shadows are existence. You came with weapons needed to fight the good fight, even when we are to weak and shortsighted to see . We lift up our brother Victor, a child whom You love endlessly. Whom we also love. Lord place Your loving hand over Victor, and allow him to experience You Almighty God! Open his eyes and the window to his soul. You have already conquered the advisory. We already won! May God bless you and your brother Victor which I claim in Jesus's precious name be sheltered and protected from any evil darkness that overshadow his path. Just Love him, keep living him. Tell him, show him. Love is patient, love is kind. Don't judge him. God does that. Just love him and set the example of mercy and understanding. He will come around. With you or through someone else. Remember Jonah? When God wants you He'll get your attention!!
Hello friend. You are already who you want to be. When one door closes , our Lord provides another to open. Open your spiritual ears and heart. Sometimes what we want so bad is not what God wants from us. Be patient, be kind. Set an example. You are apart of the church you love and worship in. You don't need a title to do God's work to bless others with your experience and love to help those in need.. Actions do better than words or titles. God bleses us with those in His time. Remember He knows the desires of your heart. Those that have ears, let them listen. I pray my brother or sister in Christ, God's will for you and your generous heart. May He lighten the path you must follow and give you the courage and endurance to follow it. In Jesus's precious Name. Amen.
Please pray for my step-daughter who is living with a man, but she called me not long ago and told me that they were getting married soon. I pray that they come to know Jesus as their personal saviors, also, so they can have a marriage blessed by GOD.
Please pray whether I should continue to attend the church I have been a member for years and because of problems with others, I have been ostracized and prevented from being involved in any activity and ministry of the church going six years July this year. All that happens is I attend church services. I not even called upon to read, although I used to be the Choir Director, Sunday school teacher, church administrator for over ten years there etc. I have been made just a visitor. I need to be involved in the church where I can help others come to know and grow in Christ Jesus. Please pray?
Pray that the darkness covering my blood brother Victor be dispelled in the name of Jesus.
Dear God, I pray that all of Your sons and daughters continue knowing that You are near. That we show our faith, love, and hope daily that other will know we are Your children. Help us to understand that we truly need each other to survive. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
Kyle: That is a lie of the devil! Don't listen to him, for he is a lier and a father of lies! There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. (Romans 8:1) Get in the scriptures every time Satan accuses you with those lies! Read out loud Psalm 91, and he will flee from you! Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. May His peace be upon you. In Jesus name. Amen! (Romans 5:1)

I request prayer for a triplet with the names: Shaneen, Lakisha & Jaïr. When they were babies they were shot by their mother, who shot herself afterwards and died. God saved the triplet amazingly. After surgery they survived. The triplets are now living with their foster mother, who is 70 years of age. The triplet are 15 years of age. They are very rebellious and go their own way. One of the girls was sexually molested. The boy hangs around with bad friends. They need God for His plan in their live be fulfilled and to set them free from their past. That speak to their hearts to make them obedient and followers of Christ. Lord have mercy on their soul.
