Talking to God

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. ~ Colossians 4:2

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. ~ Ephesians 6:18

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. ~ 1 John 5:14

Gracious God and Father, we praise you for the countless blessings, which we receive from your hand.  Without your continuing help we easily waver in our faith, lose courage, and grow careless in our watchfulness.  The times and days are perilous.  Give us strength to face the evils of each day with fresh confidence.  Open our lips to speak of your grace, and move us to use the gifts that you give us to share your Word of salvation with all people.  Protect and prosper the family, schools, the government, and all good institutions that you have established for the benefit of society.  Remember in mercy those who are sick and suffering, and bring your healing to troubled homes and lives.  Move us to pray for those in need and help them with deeds of kindness.  Keep us in the saving faith and so enable us to overcome all things through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen (Prayer of the Church, Christian Worship, 1993)
