Weekly Prayer of Encouragement 24 May

Little Sister Addison Morgan offers the Weekly Prayer of Encouragement 24 May 2020.

My Brothers, Sisters and Friends,

We hope that you are well. However, we continue to suggest that if you or anyone you know is in need of prayer or any other forms of support, please let us know. A request for prayer can be made on the church’s website.

Based on your feedback so far, we appreciate your concern for each other. We are encouraging those who want to provide any form of support for persons who are in need at this time, to do so. One of the avenues to give support is through the church office.

Do It Again” by Elevation Worship is a song that is being sung by many persons in recent times because of the assurance it offers to its listeners and those who timely meditate on it. Parts of it go like this:

“Walking around these walls,
I thought by now they’d fall.
But You have never failed me yet.
Waiting for change to come.
Knowing the battle’s won.
For You have never failed me yet.

Your promise still stands.
Great is Your faithfulness, faithfulness.
I’m still in Your hands.
This is my confidence, You’ve never failed me yet.

I know the night won’t last.
Your Word will come to pass.
My heart will sing Your praise again.
Jesus You’re still enough. Keep me within Your love.
My heart will sing Your praise again.

Oh yes it will.
Oh oh

I’ve seen You move. You move the mountains.
And I believe, I’ll see You do it again.
You made a way, where there was no way.
And I believe, I’ll see You do it again.

I’ve seen You move. You move the mountains.
And I believe. I’ll see You do it again.”

This song encourages us to focus on the faithfulness of God. It helps us to remember that the God who has come through for us in the past will do it again. Regardless of the dark clouds we face in the present time with the impact of Covid-19, we can rely on Him. It also takes my thoughts straight to the God who is our Good Shepherd. He said

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it.
The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me — just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.
I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen, I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.
The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father;”

John 10:11-18 (NIV)

 Brethren and Friends, we may become weary, tired of waiting, tempted to lose hope, and anxious but we have a God whose promise still stands, He is not a hired hand. He is the real deal. He will never run away and leave us, He is with us and will remain, He will never fail us. Let us hold to the fact that Jesus Christ made a sacrifice for us His children (His Sheep). He died and rose from the dead. He lives, so that we live, with an opportunity for eternal life. Let us hold on to our belief in Him, the assurance of His word because it will accomplish what He desires, and achieve the purpose for which it was sent (Isaiah 55:11).

We continue to celebrate our children and families during this month. As such, today’s prayer is led by our own Addison Morgan. Addison, a student, is 9 years of age and soon to be 10. She used to be involved in gymnastics.

Let us pray:

Dear Heavenly Father, we come in the name of Jesus Christ, thanking You for this wonderful day. We thank You Lord for providing us with food, shelter, clothing, fresh air and clean water to drink.

As we come to You Lord, we ask that You cleanse us from all unrighteousness and forgive us of all our sins.

Lord, please Bless those who are in need, provide them with food, water and keep them safe.

Lord I pray for those who are infected with the Corona virus. Protect and sustain the doctors, nurses and support staff caring for these patients.

Lord, please bring an end to this deadly Virus. Please cover us Lord from this Virus and let us find peace in knowing that it will be done. We also pray that You will heal those who are ill from the Virus and other illnesses.

Lord, please help those Jamaicans who want to come home. Please let them come back on a safe journey.

We pray dear God for all persons in Jamaica and the world who are doing criminal acts. Please let them stop doing bad things.

Bless all the politicians in Jamaica, and government workers. Lord we pray especially for the Honourable Prime Minister of Jamaica Andrew Holness, Minister of Health Christopher Tufton, Minister of Finance Nigel Clarke, health workers and support staff, Minister of National Security Horace Chang, Peter Philips leader of the opposition and their families; Jamaica Defence Force and Jamaica Constabulary Force personnel and Security Guards. Let them make the right decisions for the country.

Lord, please bless our church leaders. Let them make the right decisions for the re-opening of our churches.

Bless this island, Jamaica, and protect us from all harm and danger.
In Jesus’ name I pray with thanksgiving.
