Prayers for the Church of Christ
The Church is a body of Christ which He came to build by water and blood that He may present it Holy and blameless before our God the Father. Therefore let us cease this moment to commit before God the state of the church; let us pray…
King of glory, our righteous judge, thank you for the grace you have given us at this time to bring before you the Church which you came to build; we join our voices with the church victorious and rejoice in the word made flesh in whose hope we look day and night for your glorious redemption.
Grant o Lord that the church maybe one just as you are with the Son and the Holy Spirit, bless us with true unity and fervency in Spirit, cause that our bodies shall continually be the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit until the day you will come in glory to reward every man according to his works.
Remember o Lord the Promise concerning the advancement of the Church to eternal glory which the gate of hell cannot prevail, we use this moment to bring before you those whom you have made watchmen over the flock of your fold, bless them with true and right zeal to be passionate and committed to the course which you have taught us as a good Shepherd of the Sheep.
For those who has turned your church to den of rubbers; those who have forsaken their first Love (Christ) and now in pursuit of material things; those who consults familiar spirits under the disguise of the church; those whose hearts turn away from the true knowledge of thy word and now go about preaching and doing the that pleases their selfish desires; those who has hijacked the church of Christ for self glory, all these God shall judge. Amen. God have mercy.
We pray for those who are prosecuted on the account of their faith in you, grant them the Spirit of long suffering that through their undying faith in you, those who prosecute them will come to the true knowledge of your saving health.
Grant peace o Lord to the church and show your might power among us that your name alone be glorified forever. Lord we commend before you Leah Shaibu a young girl who on account of her faith and trust in you has refused to renounce her faith to embrace Islam, thank you for her life in the custody of her adoptors; we call upon your name today as a church to grant her freedom from those holding her captive, it is our prayers and faith that before the end of this year she will set free to rejoin her family by the power of the Holy Spirit. Grant this o Lord and all the ends of the earth will fear and worship you in awe.
Thank you merciful God, look upon us with your mercy and grant us pardon for all our sin, deliver us from the accusations of devil and the dangers of the fire of hell. To the glory of your name, crown your church with victory now and forever by the merit of your Son Jesus Christ our Savior and Advocate. Amen.
