"Cast Your Burden on the LORD" - 12 April 2015 PM
Our Father, who has told us to cast our burden on you and has promised that you will sustain us, that you shall never permit the righteous to be shaken (Psalm 55.22); we lift up to you our petitions and supplications through the mediation of your Son, Jesus Christ. O Lord, hear our prayer.
We remember those who find themselves fraught with specific hardships, fears, worries and perplexities….raise them up in new-found hope, comforting, healing, restoring, and defending them where most needed. O Lord, hear our prayer.
By your great mercy, please keep safe and sound our U.S. Military people and fortify their families, esp. these... Guide the nations of the earth, including the U.S.A., in the ways that foster peace and tranquility that all may prosper and your people may be safe. We pray for this State that you would be pleased to grant us to thrive economically. O Lord, hear our prayer.
O Lord, we pray for Your Church in all places, including this congregation; Jubilee Bible Ministries; New Covenant Bible Church; Northwest Bible; Trinity Bible; Grace Fellowship; Faith Bible; and Northside Bible Church. Strengthen what is true, good, wholesome and right among us, and guide us away from what is harmful and false. O Lord, hear our prayer.
We implore you to change the hearts and dispositions of our enemies that kindness and civility might reign; and grant them new hearts to love you and be drawn into your family thru Christ. Also, we plead for your sovereign grace to grip the hearts and minds of many, to the salvation of some and the restoration of others. O Lord, hear our prayer.
Father, we bring the broken dreams, ruined expectations, and failed hopes of our families, our church, our marriages, our latter years, or our professions before you. We pray that you would heal them; and that may mean you just might need to give us new and better dreams, fresh and sounder expectations, healthier and sturdier hopes. O Lord, hear our prayer.
Mighty God, compassionate and good, whose steadfast love endures forever: lift up your face to favorably behold the works, services, and outreach of this church. Be so engaged in the planning, preparation and performance of our mission trip to Carnegie, our Outreach VBS and our part on the Good News Festival that we may see your work prosper in our hands. O Lord, hear our prayer.
