Prayer of Praise and Thanksgiving

  • Spend the first few moments praising God and giving thanks.  Let’s not rush into asking for anything until we have recognized God’s goodness, faithfulness and favor in our lives. 

Matthew 7:7-8 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Pray for our family

  • Children
  • Spouses

John 15:16  You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit--fruit that will last--and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
