PRAYER FOR OUR WORLD:
Heavenly Father, we come before you today to pray for the Earth and all the people around the globe. We know that You created the earth, mankind, and all the inhabitants of the world. Please pour out Your love and blessings upon Your creations.
We ask that You help us to be good stewards of all You gave us and instructed us to care for and maintain. May we bring You glory in our obedience and service to Your earthy creations.
We ask for peace in our world. We pray that all conflict and wars will end and that You would bring peace to all nations. Even despite hatred, conflict, war, and injustice, You tell us to be of good courage because You will give us Your heavenly peace. We are grateful for Your abiding peace regardless of the chaos, confusion, and evil within our world.
Father God, please heal all who are suffering and sick around the globe. Give water to the thirsty, food to the hungry, shelter to the homeless, provisions to the poor, and hope to the hopeless.
We ask for Your justice in our world. We pray that You end all oppression and injustice and ask that You will establish a world where everyone is treated with compassion, dignity, and respect.
We desire Your true freedom from sin in our world. We ask for Your deliverance from all bondages of tyranny, slavery, and human trafficking. May all people have the freedom and privilege to live in peace and security.
We know that divine change in our world begins when we submit our hearts and lives to You and only then can we make a positive difference in the lives of others. Help us to be the person You intend us to be and may we be a reflection of Your righteousness worldwide.
We know that we cannot do this on our own, and we ask for Your forgiveness and help in making our world a better place. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth and to all people as it is in Heaven we pray.
We trust, believe, and ask all this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
