Effectual Prayer

James 5: 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray for one another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

II Chronicles 7: 14 “If my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”.

Dear Heavenly Father, we come before your throne of grace and humbly seek thy will to be done in our lives. We ask your forgiveness for our sins, both of commission and omission. We pray for the safety and peace of the United States, its people, and for the world at large. We lift up our troops wherever they may be that you would guide them and lead them to do thy will. Father we ask that you would give us eyes to see, ears to hear, and a heart to perceive and understand and follow thy leading. Let us not veer off the straight and narrow path, nor be deceived by man or the powers and principalities of the dark powers of this world. Help us to seek thy wisdom through thy word and follow after Thee in thought, word and deed. We ask Lord for wisdom and courage for our leaders both present and the ones to come. We pray Lord that your will be done in the upcoming election, and that the Bible will remain the basis for the laws governing our land and that Christianity will grow in the United States and throughout the world. Give your people a hungering and thirsting after thy word and fill us daily with thy Holy Spirit. Put a guard before our mouths and a guard before our hearts that we may not sin against thee and have it come back to harm us. Help us Oh Lord to be the salt of the earth, to study thy word that we may be workmen that need not be ashamed. Search our hearts and cleanse us from every wicked way.

Lord we lift up Rickie for complete healing and restoration of his foot. Let him not walk in foolishness, but grant him wisdom in taking better care of himself for your healing to take place in his foot. Restore Rickie to a close daily relationship with thee, to be and do those things, which are pleasing in thy sight. We pray for Rickie, Lisa and Shawn and their loved ones to be drawn nigh unto thee to know, love and serve you as their Lord and Savior. Prepare their hearts that each of them will open the door to you and you alone and that they will listen only to the voice of the one true Living God. May thy Holy Spirit rise up within them to convince them of their need for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Cause them to hunger and thirst after thy word to seek your correction, and instruction and seek to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Heal and strengthen the marriages of Shawn and Nicole and Herman and Lisa. We pray for the salvation of each of them and their children, Devin, Coty, Joey, Joshua, Nathaniel, Hannah, Ethan, Bella, and Oden.

Lord we lift up Oden for healing from this seizure activity. We ask that you would guard and protect him from all harm. Grant his doctors, and all who take part in his treatment, wisdom, skill, and knowledge in the week ahead. Heal Oden, Oh Lord, of all causes of this seizure disorder.
We lift up Eddie and ask that you would heal him and rid his body of all cancer. We thank you Father that you alone are in control of his time on earth and ask that Eddie be preserved in health and strength for every day that you have purposed for him to be with us on Earth. We pray, most of all, for His salvation and life eternal with thee through thy son Jesus. We ask that you would grant Gail, Phil, and their entire family thy peace and comfort in these trying times. We thank you for all that you have done and continue to do in each of our lives.

Lord we lift up all unsaved family members that each of them would open their hearts and ask you to come in to be their Lord and Savior. Deliver Jimmy from sin and break the shackles that bind him. Take the veil from their eyes, and give them eyes to see, ears to hear and hearts to perceive and understand and know you as Lord and Savior.

Lord, we lift up Gail, Phil, Phyllis, Bob and Jimmy and Joy. Thank you Lord that you perfect that which concerns them. We ask your blessings upon them and each of their children and grandchildren. Strengthen and heal Phyllis’s back. We pray for everything to go well in Bob’s foot operation and that it may heal quickly and completely.

Lord, Rick and I seek your face to know you, love you, and serve you in thought, word, and deed. Lord, forgive us of all our sins, especially of worry, fear, doubt, and unbelief. We do believe, help thou our unbelief. Lord, we also ask your forgiveness for profane thoughts and words, for your word tells us “Out of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Help each of us to discipline our tongues that we would not sin against thee. Renew our minds daily by the washing of the water of the Word. Lead us to that home church where you would have us worship thee, and to be in fellowship with other believers.

Be with Rick in the work place daily Lord and grant him favor and understanding in thy sight and in the sight of his customers and co-workers. Grant that he would be a light to shine for thee in thought, word, and deed and that he would do all as unto the Lord. Prosper the works of his hands and grant him the joy of the Lord to be his strength daily. Heal his body and deliver him from pain. Place your guardian angles around him and keep him safe from all the fiery darts of the enemy. We thank you Lord for blessing him with a job and income.

Lord, grant that my head would be healed, take away the headaches, nausea and restore my brain in every way that it will no longer have ill effects from light. Lord, we ask that thy will may be done in the upcoming decisions of the litigation and settlement about my fall. Grant wisdom, knowledge and skill to my lawyer that all outcomes of my case may be according to thy will and purpose.

Grant that each of us would yield ourselves to thee entirely that we would be hearers and doers of thy word. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Lord we praise thee and thank thee for being who you are. We thank you for all that you have done and all that you continue to do. We glorify thee, and give you all the praise and glory and honor. We ask Lord, that thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. We thank you for the sacrifice of your Son and for our eternal life with thee. Thou alone art worthy to be praised and none is above thee. Help us, oh Lord, to glorify thee in all our ways.

In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.
