“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16)
Our Father in heaven, we praise You for who You are, the one and only living God! And we thank You that we are Your children and can come boldly before Your throne of grace because Jesus is our high priest.
We ask, oh God, that You help each and everyone of us to walk in obedience to Your Word. Help us to confess our sins to each other so that we may be healed (James 5:12). For You look at our hearts and You greatly delight in obedience (1. Sam. 15:22). Help us, oh God, to do Your will, because not everyone who says to You, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does Your will (Matth. 7:21).
When we face resistance and get discouraged, may You help us to stay committed to interceding for this city. Encourage us not to give up, but to press on and keep praying and crying out to You, God!
Heavenly Father, cause us to committing ouselves together month after month to fasting and praying and humbling ourselves before You.
Our prayer is to You, O Lord. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of Your steadfast love answer us in Your saving faithfulness. (Ps. 69:13)
In Your Name, Jesus, we pray. Amen.
