Father, I pray for my local church. I thank you for my brothers and sisters in Christ. I praise you for the blessings you have bestowed upon us and ask for continued grace.
You know the needs of our congregation. (List specific needs here.) I pray that, according to your will, you would give healing to those who are suffering with physical needs. Encourage them, despite their pain, to live for you. I pray for those with financial needs. Supply what they lack. Provide for them, as a sign of your love and grace. I ask you also to remember those who are under heavy burdens of stress, etc. Lighten their load. Let them know that you are with them, to help them through these trials and to give grace for every hour.
Father, help our church to be a light of love and holiness to this community. May we be known as a people who love God and one another. Increase our influence for Christ in our world. Thank you for all this. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
