Pray for God to heal

  The prophet Jeremiah strongly believed the only reliable hope for his country resided in the Lord God. He also had faith in God’s ability to heal him personally.   If we, too, have faith in the healing power of God for our country and ourselves, we can offer up our need in prayer and praise to the Lord. We can also agree with Jeremiah and each other as we pray this timeless prayer:   Jeremiah 17:13-14 – a prayer of Jeremiah from the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible   O Lord, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living waters.     Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.   From  the Book of KJV Prayers  -  actual prayers from the  King James Version  of the Bible (KJV) collected by  Mary Harwell Sayler , ©2019      Jeremiah 17:13-14 – a prayer of Jerem

Pray for forgiveness, peace, healing!

As riots abound around our country and the world, Pentecost week has come, reminding us of the coming of the Law of Moses to bring God's people together and, centuries later, the coming of the Holy Spirit to empower us as we minister to and build up God's people everywhere. And so, in the Name of the Lord God and all that is Holy, l et's do everything we can to communicate God's love: Let's try to truly hear what others have to say, especially if their lives differ greatly from ours. Let's aim to identify each problem and look for workable solutions instead of lumping everything into an impassible mountain. Let's pray together. Pray with the family of Korah. Pray for the Lord to remind us, we, too, are One in the Family of God. Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring forgiveness, peace, and healing in Jesus’ Name. Pray for God’s Love to be clearly visible as the banner He places over ALL of His people. Psalm 60:1-5 – a prayer of the family of Korah

Moses prayed for family healing

For forty years, Moses lived in Pharaoh’s palace while his siblings, Miriam and Aaron, lived in the home of their parents, who were Hebrew slaves. One day Moses saw an Egyptian cruelly mistreating a Hebrew, so he killed the man to defend the slave. When word got around, Moses fled the country and spent the next forty years among the Cushites, tending livestock and marrying the daughter of the local priest for whom he worked. Moses’ third round of forty years began with the Exodus as God called him to lead the Hebrew people out of Egypt. Miriam and Aaron came too, but they did not like his being married to a Cushite (Ethiopian) woman. Maybe they were intolerant of people with darker skin. Maybe they got jealous of their younger brother’s position of authority. Regardless, they spoke against Moses – the man whom God Himself had appointed, which was like speaking against the wisdom of God. Numbers 12:8 records God’s response from a cloud: “ Why weren’t you afraid to speak ag

Praying through the ashes

A Bible prayer for Ash Wednesday to begin the church season of Lent Psalm 51:1-10 Be merciful to me, O God! In the greatness of Your mercy, wipe out my sins and wipe away the stains. I’m aware of my faults, and my rebellions against You haunts me! Against You – and You alone have I sinned. I’ve done wrong by You! So You’d be right to judge me. And You have every right to condemn me. I’ve gotten myself into trouble since birth. I’ve been inclined to be selfish ever since my conception! But You want me to get real. You desire me to look inward – with sincerity and truth – and find Your wisdom waiting for me there. Purge my sins, and I will be clean. Cleanse me, and I will be as fresh as new snow. Help me to hear the sounds of joy and gladness. Help me to be aware that my brokenness is healed. Hide my sins from Your face, and blot out all ill will in me. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew Your Spirit within me. © 2015, Mary Ha
