Christmas Prayer for Two States


(

I am joining in the 50 states of Prayer movement. Each of the participants has been asked to pray for their home state. I asked permission to also pray for the state where our son lives.

Prayer for Indiana

Lord Jesus;

I bring before You my home state of Indiana. We will be celebrating our state’s bicentennial birthday in 2016. I give thanks for our being able to observe the date. We love the way You have given our state the privilege of having four seasons in which to see your beauty.

Please, dear Jesus, let Your Spirit fall on all the leaders of our state, all 92 counties and all the cities. Our city still faces severe economic trials and has for almost a decade. Small businesses have had to close their doors because the people can’t support them. Our children graduate from high school or college and have to relocate to other localities in order to have work.

Lord, we know there are things that are not as You would like them here in Indiana. I ask that You work through these many issues and allow Your glory to be seen. Please let your Holy Spirit fall on each city and town in our state. Do this out of Your grace and love for our state. AMEN

Prayer for Kansas

Lord Jesus;

I bring before You the state where our son lives, the Sunflower State.  I ask You to help the farmers who grow the wheat for our nation. I ask You to protect them from harm when the weather conditions create storms, tornadoes and snow storms. Protect the farmers as they plan for their crops and care for their animals.

Father, please guide the citizens who are unemployed. Please help their families. Grant them mercy and love on this your season in which we celebrate your birth.

Lord, please guide the leaders and the lawmakers through their days. Help them as they try to decide what is best for their people. Protect the small children as they grow and mature. Remind them of Your great love for them. Do this out of Your store of grace and love for the people of Kansas. AMEN

    1. Thank you, Susanne.I once told my son that if he got a job that he wanted in a southern state, that state would be a favorite state for me. He later got a job in Kansas, so Kansas is a favorite state.

    1. Thank you, Bish. My husband grew up in a farming community. He worked for a couple of different farmers. His life-long friend still farms and does other kinds of outdoor work. We can't sit down to a meal without thinking of the farmers. Merry Christmas

  13. Two great prayers Cecelia. You can always tell the prayers of a person of deep faith as their considerations go deeper than "God is great, God is good." Praying continued blessings and opportunities to spread Gods love and message in 2014. I am part of the 50SOP, but did little visiting during the holiday week to other contributor's blogs.
