PRAYER DIARY

October Prayer Diary 2021

 

Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness;

bow down before Him, His glory proclaim;

gold of obedience and incense of lowliness

bring, and adore Him; the Lord is His name! (CH4 201)

Many hymns are a great source of inspiration for prayer. Try using the lines of these hymns this month to guide your prayers.

 

Mondays 

Count your blessings, name them one by one.

Take time to think of all the ways God has blessed you in the last week and thank Him.

 

Tuesdays 

Jesus loves me this I know (CH4 563)

Take time to thank Jesus for His incredible love for us.

He was born in a stable for ME, He lived on earth for ME, He died on a cross for ME, He rose again for ME and He is coming again one day for ME.

Wednesdays

We have heard a joyful sound, Jesus saves.

Spread the gladness all around, Jesus saves. (CH4 249)

Pray for opportunities to be bold to tell your friends, family and neighbours about all God has done for you.

Thursdays 

I am the church! You are the church!

We are the church together!

All who follow Jesus, all around the world,

Yes, we’re the church together. (CH4 204)

Pray for the church worldwide especially for persecuted Christians who must worship in secret and for missionaries like Caroline, Levi and Ruth.

Pray for those who serve in our church in any way, including worship leaders, the Session and Board members and those in our local Presbytery.

 

Fridays 

Come children join and sing, alleluia amen (CH4 185)

Give thanks for the young people and leaders in Messy Church, Early Morning Service, Sunday School and Boys Brigade.

Pray for the Sunday School as they hopefully meet again at the end of this month.

 

Saturdays 

Guide me O thou Great Jehovah (CH4 167)

Pray for wisdom and God’s guidance in our daily lives.

Ask for help in making the right choices in what we do and say so that God’s name may be always glorified.

Pray for forgiveness when we fail and give thanks that God repeatedly forgive us.

 

Sundays

This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. (CH4 194)

Thank God for this His special day, that we may hold this day as special and holy.

Pray for Benjamin and give thanks for his ministry.

Give thanks for Lex being back at the organ and give thanks for those who played the organ during his absence.

Pray for those attending church and those listening or watching later in the week.
