Here’s a prayer petition I received about the Australian bush fires. Thought I’d share with you that we join in prayer:
“Australia is burning
24 people dead
500 million animals dead
8,000 koalas dead
Over 5.5 million hectares burned (the size of Belgium)
Fire perimeter more than 10,000 miles long
More than 1400 homes destroyed
Thousands of other buildings & structures destroyed
An as yet uncalculated number damaged
10 million people or more breathing in toxic levels of bushfire smoke.
Please Continue Praying ..
God Bless Australia
This is not climate change !!
Experts estimate about 85% of bushfires are caused by humans.”
The news link for Australian bush fires had this to say:
- Record-breaking high temperatures and severe drought conditions in Australia combine for a dangerous recipe — a mixture that has exploded into one of the worst fire seasons in recent memory.
- At least 24 people have been killed and more than 63,000 square miles burned since the fires began in September 2019.
Dear Lord Jesus Christ we pray for Australia in it’s entirety that they are saved from the terrible bushfires they are suffering from. Please prevent the fires from spreading further. Also we ask in faith that the Holy Spirit causes more people, birds and animals to get rescued from harm and death. Protect children especially in these days of trouble and keep their families safe too. We pray that Australia recovers quickly from this damage and also that if anyone deliberately caused these fires, then they are subject to the law and justice of this nation. We believe that our prayers will be answered in your Holy Name. Amen
Heal those whom I hold dear,
Lord let your healing to them come near.
Hear my prayer and hear my plea,
And let all of their illness flee.
O Christ Jesus I desire that they are well,
And also that they prevail against hell.
May the Enemy’s plan against them fail,
Help them when their faith goes frail.
I ask that my loved ones are set free,
From the darkness for eternity.
Let Gospel be in their heart,
So that from God they don’t depart.
Love the Lord God sincerely,
And look up to his Son Jesus dearly.
Love God because it right and just,
In your Creator Divine put your trust.
Love God in your thoughts, words and deed,
And surrender to him each and every need.
Love God because his name is Holy,
In his honour pray for those poor and lowly.
Love God with all your might,
And trust in him to set things right.
Love God because he is great,
In his name all evil you hate.
O Lord Jesus the Redeemer of the world, I pray that this Christmas and even further on, that you lead your people in a special way, to care for the poor and the needy. I ask in faith that you cause more of your preachers to speak about feeding the poor, being kind to the lonely, and visiting widows and orphans in their afflictions. Let them not shy away from preaching about the need to do good works in the name of the Lord God. By the Holy Spirit, give each and every of my Christian brothers and sisters the grace, to cheerfully help those in need of food, clothing, shelter and respect. Let us be the light that shines in the darkness to those who are in despair and gloom. I also pray that the people of the world, too do whatever they can, to bring good things to those in trouble. I ask eagerly that those in law enforcement are kind to the homeless and rescue people from slavery all over the world. I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen.
O Lord Jesus, you are the only begotten Son of God in whom dwells fullness of the Godhead. I thank God for sending you, by the Holy Spirit, to redeem us from sin and death. I pray for those living in Israel, Judea and Samaria that they are preached the Gospel everwhere, till they say “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord”. Even as my brothers and sisters in you O Christ Jesus are saved, so by that same grace cause those who live in the land you walked, healed and preached in, to also desire you more than any human tradition. You were born to be the Shepherd of the lost sheep of Israel, and so I intercede for their remnant in this age, to come back to you Jesus, the good shepherd. Open their eyes, that they may see their true hope and salvation. I pray that you banish all the mountains of deceptions that hinder their progress towards you the Messiah. I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen.
O God the Almighty One I give you the glory and praise, for your miracles in my life and in those who believe in you. No one can do miracles greater than you. I thank you for the greatest miracle of all, which is salvation by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, for those who believe. I pray for great and greater miracles, to be done all over the world, so that your Holy Name is glorified. By your Holy Spirit, lead your worshipper’s all over the world, to follow your Son Jesus Christ, in both word and action so they reach the fullness of the faith. I plead that you rescue and protect, my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, all around the world from all dangers both seen and unseen at all times. I pray especially for those in the Christian faith, who are actively targeted for their trust in Jesus, so that you give them hope and courage and relief, and by that they adore you even more. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen
I’ve seen people who love to pray for others (intercession) to God. However I then noticed a few people whose prayers do not get answers. They then blame their lack of prayerfulness or simply say the delay is due to evil forces in the spiritual world. Yes it is all that at times. However there is one thing they still skip out – Repentance.
Proverbs 28:9 – He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer [shall be] abomination.
Psalms 66:18 – If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear [me]:
Proverbs 15:29 – The LORD [is] far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
Isaiah 59:2 – But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid [his] face from you, that he will not hear.
The key thing is to repent and then intercede in such cases.
1 Peter 3:12 – For the eyes of the Lord [are] over the righteous, and his ears [are open] unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord [is] against them that do evil
James 5:16 – Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Christ said “Love your neighbour,
As yourself” – a worthy labour.
Love yourself with due respect,
So that charity you then reflect.
How can one, whom for self doesn’t bother,
Be able to sincerely love the other?
And do what Christ commanded,
Nothing too big has been demanded.
Help your neighbour in need,
Instead of being led by greed.
Help your neighbour in sorrow,
To let them be hopeful for tomorrow.
Be a true child of God in action,
Let your good works gain traction.
Pray for your neighbour to live pure,
That for eternity in grace they endure.
