An Easter Prayer

 

Pray with me please:

Father God, Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, we come before You on behalf of our loved ones still in search of truth and the saving knowledge of our Savior and King. Lord, as we celebrate this Holy week and coming Easter services, we ask for Your Holy Spirit to knock down the walls that separate so many from coming to truly know You.

We pray Father, for the power of Jesus’s life, ministry, death and resurrection to flood the hearts and minds of those who so desperately need You.

If doubt is present, please bring truth. If fear is present, please bring comfort. If anger is present, please bring peace.

As we pray to You about those we know who need to feel the healing touch of our Savior, we ask that You would speak to each one of them individually. Please, Dear Lord, break away the chains that bind them to Satan’s grip and help them to be forever set free.

Father God, where we fall short and are in need of restoration, we pray the prayer of David in Psalm 51:10; create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Dearest Jesus, we worship and adore You and praise Your holy name for the sacrifice of all sacrifices. Our gratitude is beyond words, our adoration incomplete this side of heaven. We pray our actions this week will be worthy of all You’ve done. May all we do and say be honoring and pleasing to You. In Your matchless name we pray, amen.

Friends, I offer this prayer as we come upon Good Friday and Easter/Resurrection Sunday. This day is a time of reflection for me as I am daily blown away by the love and sacrifice of our Savior and Friend. He alone is worthy of our praise!

I would ask that you leave a comment containing the names of those you are praying this prayer for. Then, please pray for others who post the same. There are over 45 of us, so if we all list those we are praying for, that means they are being prayed for over 45 times!

I’ll start: Johnny, Brenda, Lin, Adam, Jenn, Tony, Jeff and Jess.

Thank you for praying, I promise to do the same.

Happy Easter!

In His embrace,

Toni

    Toni…
    What a beautiful prayer and a blessing and priviledge to know these names are going to be prayed over. The power of prayer is an incredible gift and the interceding the Holy Spirit does on our behalf to the Father Above is beyond what our minds can comprehend. Oh..the battle that is going on around these very souls at this moment, but we know and can trust without a doubt…God hears our prayers. I pray for for Dolly, Donna, Henrietta, Joe, Tinker, and Danny. I pray for Alan, Linda, Donnie, Ashley, Laurie, and Russell. Thank You for opening up your blog and allowing our hearts to unite on behalf of those in desperate need of a relationship with Christ. I love you my friend!

    • Toni  says:

      Sheila,
      Rest assured, God knows each and every one of these names. He knows every hair on their heads and is knocking on the door of their hearts.
      Thank you for your love and support. Praying for all, for His love to knock them over!
