This is Intercessory Prayer Week
We tend to think about these persons when we need them or if they are a member of our circle of friends or family members. Fire fighters and the police put their lives on the line in the line of duty daily. Let’s lift them up in prayer today.
Almighty and Everlasting God, we stand in the gap today for those who work to protect our homes and our lives from catastrophe. Protect and preserve them in dangerous situations. Keep them strong in the face of every challenge whether by fire or violent confrontation. Help them to conduct their responsibilities with integrity even when tempted to do the less than honorable.
Comfort the hearts of their families who wait for their safe return home. And, while they are looking after other families, Lord, look after theirs. In Jesus name, Amen.
Who among us needs intercessory prayer? Who are you praying for today?
