Our Father in Heaven, Holy is thy name; may your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Father, as I come petitioning your throne, I first thank you for another day you’ve allowed your children to see, thank you for another opportunity to experience your anointing and thank you Father for another chance to witness your grace. Now, oh God, I lay out in the spiritual before your throne, pleading for my Christian brothers and sisters. I stretch out my hands before you Father, praying on behalf of those who can’t seem to find the words to pray for themselves. For the parent who is standing vigil by her child’s hospital bed, for the parent who is looking at the balance in their checking account trying to figure out how to make it until next week with no groceries or gas, for the parent who is trying to see how to purchase school uniforms and supplies, for the parent who is still trying to pay last month’s rent, for the parent who is still without their medicine and for the parent who doesn’t have air yet is still trying to put on a brave face; God, I come before you on their behalf crying out to you to see about them! For the parent who has to bury another child, for the person who has to bury another family member, for the person who lost their job and is now on the verge of being homeless, for the person who is on the way back to the doctor for test results, for the person who needs a job and keeps getting turned down; help them now Father! For the person who is dealing with a demon on the inside of them that they can’t seem to let go of, for that person who is secretly battling an addiction, for the person who is abusive at home to their spouse and children, for the person who won’t let go of anger and bitterness; help them Father and forgive them in the pardon of their sins. Lord, we need you here. We need your help to stop the senseless killings that are going on in our streets. We need you to shut the hands of those who seek to do violence. Shut up the mouths of those who speak evil. We need you! Oh God! I come praying to you, standing in the gap; crying out for you to come and see about your people! Do it now Father for your children.
