Prayers

 

Prayer for a new street or road

Lord Jesus, You know each home and business that we will pass on this street. You know the physical, emotional and spiritual condition of each and every soul who lives and works here. Lord, help us to sense their pain, their concerns, their fears, their hopes and needs, and the requests that they are lifting towards You in heaven. Lord, give us sensitivity through the guidance of Your Holy Spirit that we may know how to pray and how to recognise the signs of your leading. O God, help us to be bold and kind. Help us to look like Your disciples. Give us joy. Lord Jesus, help us be Your mouth, Your hands and Your feet to someone in this street. To You be the glory and honour. Amen
