Bible Verse & Quote on Prayer

“Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” (James 5:16)

“There is no great movement of God that has ever occurred that does not begin with the extraordinary prayer of God's people.” - Dr. Ronnie Floyd

Congregational Bible Prayer

A Prayer from Psalm 103

“Bless the Lord, O my soul,
   and all that is within me,
   bless his holy name!
The Lord works righteousness
   and justice for all who are oppressed.
The Lord is merciful and gracious,
   slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He will not always chide,
   nor will he keep his anger forever.
He does not deal with us according to our sins,
   nor repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
   so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
   so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
As a father shows compassion to his children,
   so the Lord shows compassion to those who call on him.
Bless the Lord, all his works,
   in all places of his dominion.
Bless the Lord, O my soul!”


PRAYERS FOR AMERICA TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER

Congregational Personal Prayers

Lord, during this time we still our hearts before you. Allow us to consider ways that WE can better “love one another” (John 13:34). We lift up our hearts to you, and ask that you would strengthen us to be beacons of Christ-like love to our families, workplaces, communities, spouses, churches, and cities. Use our words, thoughts, and actions to ignite chain reactions of Christ exalting love with all those that we come in contact with, so that others who come into contact with us may know your love by our words and deeds. We pray all of this in the name of Jesus Christ, the author and perfecter of our faith. Amen.
