A Prayer Prompted by John 16

Heavenly Father,

We thank you that Jesus has come not only to save us but to overcome our enemy the devil. Thank you that we can have confidence that you are at work and have won the battle, even when we face various trials. Help us to remain strong in our faith and to never fall away as so many others have done.

We thank you for the work of the Holy Spirit within us and for the way he inspired the human authors of your word. We now ask you to help us fill our hearts and minds with the Bible and stay focused upon it, that we might continuously experience your peace.

And we pray this in Jesus’ name,

Amen

A Prayer Prompted by John 15

Dear Lord Jesus,

We submit ourselves to you as our Savior, our Redeemer and our Lord. As the branches need the vine, we understand that our spiritual life depends completely on you.  Without you we can do nothing.

We ask you to produce fruit in our lives by means of the Holy Spirit who indwells us. Let that fruit transform our personalities so that we become more and more like you.

Help us to be strong and faithful witnesses for you in the face of the world’s hatred. And let us experience your joy regardless of what we face here on earth.

In your name we pray,

Amen
