Father in heaven, in the Name of Jesus, we thank You that by the power of Your Holy Spirit we are able to present our requests before You as we remember one another through prayer.
Father, we pray a spirit of encouragement will fall upon Your people, for we are not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for He is the power of God by whom we have been reconciled back to You through His blood atonement on our behalf (See Habakkuk 2:4).
Father, we thank You, that the blood of Jesus justifies those of us who have placed our trust and faith in Him as our Lord, God, Savior, and Master who rules and reigns over kingdom, tribe, nation, and tongue.
And we, who are justified through Your Son’s blood atonement on our behalf, must live by faith, for faith is not an option, it is a requirement.
“For Your wrath, Father, is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for have shown it to them.’
‘For since the creation of the world, Father, Your invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even Your eternal power and God head (Father God, God the Son who appeared in the flesh as Son of God and Son of Man, and Your Holy Spirit, who is the Spirit of Christ who is with us today) so that none are without excuse.’
And because they knew of Your existence Father, they who are in the world refused to glorify You, nor are they thankful, for they have become futile in their thoughts, and their hearts love the darkness more than the light, for the light exposes the darkness’ (See John 3:16-21).
‘And professing to be wise they became fools, and changed the glory of You Father, who is the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things.’
Therefore, Father God, they left You no choice but to give them over to uncleanness of their hearts to dishonor their bodies among themselves, for they exchange Your truth, Lord God, for a lie, and chose by their own free will, served the creature rather than You, Father God, who is their Creator.’
And for this reason, Father, You gave them up to vile passions. And now we they who are in the world prefer to have same sex and bisexual relations which are, like all sins, that gratify the flesh, are an abomination in Your sight.
Father, we confess that the nature of humankind is rebellious against You and Yours ways, and do not want to retain the knowledge of You who is our God, but on behalf of those of whom You had to give over to a reprobate mind.
Father, we approach You, in the Name of Jesus, that if there is anyone who reads this message, and are in need of a Savior, that You will make a way for them to receive Your Son, Jesus, into their hearts.
Holy Spirit, we ask You to protect those whose eyes need to be enlightened through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Father, we ask that You to make a way to reach anyone who needs Your Son right here and right now while it is yet called day, then let it be so, for Your glory and honor we pray, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
