Prayers for Any Season
Please join the CUMC's Prayer Team in praying at these suggested times during the day every day of the year. You may offer your own prayers or use the following prayers:
1. Pray when you wake up.
"Lord, thank you that I slept in a bed in my home last night. Bless those who are homeless in our city. May they find housing this day. In Jesus' name, Amen."
2. Pray when you eat.
"Lord, thank you for this food. Bless those who are hungry. Show me how I can share some food today. In Jesus' name, Amen."
3. Pray at work or school.
"Lord, thank you for work to do. Help me remember how blessed I am to be able to think, to learn, and to be productive. Remind me that I am to do the best I can do as if working for you. In Jesus' name, Amen."
4. Pray in traffic or a public place.
"Lord, help me see the many faces of people you have made. They do not look, act, or sound exactly like me, but you love them and want me to love them, too. I pray for our world. May I reflect Christ this day. In Jesus' name, Amen."
5. Pray before or after play.
"Lord, thank you for the fun things in my life. Thank you for laughter and for friends. Bless those who can't move as I can. Bless those who are lonely. Help me to reach out to someone and share your joy. In Jesus' name, Amen."
6. Pray as you read or hear the news.
"Lord, bless the leaders of our world. May they make decisions that are righteous and just. In Jesus' name, Amen."
7. Pray before bed.
"Lord, thank you that you've called me to pray this day. Thank you that you've heard every prayer. I pray your special blessings on everyone who has prayerd today. May we continue to pray tomorrow, for you are the Hope of our world. In Jesus' name, Amen."
