August 2021 Prayer

Lord God, as time moves ever closer to Your return may we cling to You now more than ever. Lord God, so much is happening in this world and we need Your help to process what we see, hear and think. Lord God, give Your people wisdom and discernment in this new month.

Lord God, lies and deceptions are surrounding us. Help us to not deceive ourselves thinking we are immune from deception. May we test and hold everything we see and hear up to the Light of Your Word. examine us Lord to see where we are straying from You and Your Word in our thoughts and actions.

Lord God, give us wisdom when it comes to the covid vaccine. Lord God, there is so much division and animosity over this vaccine and I know it grieves Your heart how believers are treating each other over this. Lord, bring Your people to a place where even if there isn’t unity, we disagree peaceably in love.

Lord God, may we trust You more this month. May we seek Jesus and His Kingdom and what He requires rather than focusing solely on the political issues of this world. Lord God, stir our hearts to pray for those who are under persecution. Churches are being shut down all over the world, hostility is growing for those who hear and do Christ’s Word.

Lord God, help us to be a people who spread Your Good News. Lord God, give this reader courage this month to boldly live and serve You in a hostile and dying world. Thank You Lord for the time You have given us. For the reader who does not know Christ may they come into a saving relationship with Him today. Lord, may we NEVER forget that it is a fearful thing to fall into the Hands of the Living God. Lord, may we rest in Your Arms, being Your Hands and Feet to those whom You place on our path. May we love and serve You faithfully this month. In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen.

  1. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
    Thank you, Mandy, for this powerful prayer which is most needful as we long for the gospel of peace to spread, even as we want to be “peacemakers” as Christ sends us out, sons and daughters of God. Love and blessings to you sister!

  2. Thank you for this prayer. I just prayed. Indeed, may GOD give wisdom to Christians especially with the vaccine as a more infectious (delta) variant looms. May they think of courtesy to their fellow Christians than being marked by…a needle. Blessings Mandy and Nathan!

  3. Wisdom is surely what we all need!

    As regards “the vaccine” (there are four, yet it seems most all narratives are reduced to the singular), from an individual’s perspective, any working stance depends on which premises one accepts or rejects, which source one finds credible or not.

    1. Yes! Love this, “May we stand firm in the Gospel of Peace, and may we rest in the peace of the Gospel.” I thought something like that but words didn’t come and so God gave them to you! Amazing how God works and connects our hearts in prayer! Love and blessings!!


  4. Thank you for such a timely and relevant prayer, Mandy. It’s so difficult to see the deception in our world and even our country. But even more difficult is the division it’s causing in the Church. Many people are divided because their focus is on this world and not on Christ. May we draw ever closer to Him and allow His word to be planted in our hearts, so we will not sin against Him or each other, and so that we can stand firm in these dark days and the darker ones to come. Blessings to you Sister. Forgive me for not returning your message yet.. I will soon. Love and hugs.
