Prayers of Thanksgiving
I welcome you to this month of September in the name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, Amen. Indeed the Lord has been faithful from the ages past and we are alive today by His good pleasure, many have died, but the Lord has spared us in His mercy and loving kindness so that we can turn from our evil ways and come to Him; therefore let us acknowledge His faithfulness towards us.
Almighty and and eternal God, if we say we have no sin, we lie and deceive ourselves; but you are full of compassion to forgive us all that is past. This morning, as many have mercy on us and give ears to the voice of our prayers through Jesus Christ our Lord! Amen.
Say thank you to the Lord for being so good, for always being so loving and kind. Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has saved you from your enemies.(Psalms 107:1-2|LIVING-
Blessed Redeemer and Great defender, nobody can survive the year 2020 except the Lord be with him; many are the afflictions of this year but the Lord in His faithfulness has sustained us by the power of His word. Thank you for life, thank you for we heard of Covid-19 but did not experience it, thank you for putting food on our table even when the cities were on lockdown, thank you for our nations, thank you for the church, thank you for the relative peace and harmony we share; Lord do not leave nor forsake us for we have no other help but you.
If the Lord had not been on our side (let all Israel admit it), if the Lord had not been on our side, we would have been swallowed alive by our enemies, destroyed by their anger. … We would have drowned beneath the flood of these men’s fury and pride. … Blessed be Jehovah who has not let them devour us. We have escaped with our lives as a bird from a hunter’s snare. The snare is broken and we are free! Our help is from the Lord who made heaven and earth.(Psalms 124:1-2,4,6-8|LIVING-
