Prayer Focus for the Week of November 21
Generous God, as we gather to give thanks for Your abundant blessings, help us to also remember those who are facing hard times, who may be hurting or suffering. Lord, You are our provider. Help us to share all that You have given us with others so that they may know and receive You. Remind us also to invite You into our homes and celebrations as we begin this holiday season, for You are our most honored guest. We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer Focus for the Week of November 28
The season of Advent has begun, Father-God. It is a season of waiting and anticipation, a season of watchfulness and hope, and a season of growing darkness in which we celebrate the birth of Your Son, the Light of the world. We thank You for this most precious gift. Help us to receive Your light and to reflect that light for the world to see, that others may come to know You. Remind us, when we find ourselves in darkness, that Jesus is the Light, and He is our hope. Give us the strength to raise our eyes heavenward and fix our eyes on the Author and Finisher of our Faith. We give You thanks and praise for all these things and so much more, in the precious name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
Prayer Focus for the Week of December 5
Heavenly Father, this Advent season, help us to remember that however dark or cold it may be out in the world, wherever Christ is present and praised, there is the warmth of heavenly light and glad tidings for all. You are our hope, our joy, and our peace. With thankful hearts, we give you praise in Jesus’ name. Amen.
