Default Pastoral Prayer

Our Dear Heavenly Father;

Move in us. In response to Your great love, Your complete forgiveness, and Your never-ending grace, move in us that we might allow Your Holy Spirit to do what the Apostle Paul urged the disciples in Rome to do - to be transformed into the likeness of our Savior.

Oh Father, we do not need more things, You have reminded us in Your Word that all the world has to offer is nothing but "filthy rags." We do not need more time, we have plenty of time. Instead we must allow You to order our time so that we have our priorities fixed on You and so that we will use our time for Kingdom endeavors. What we need is You and Your Son, our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. We need Your Holy Spirit engaged and active in our lives, guiding and directing our paths.

And Heavenly Father, cause us to listen. Slowing down and waiting on You is hard for us. We don't wait well, so help us to remember that You have proven that Your timing is perfect and Your wisdom is boundless. Cause us to apply the Truths of Your Word to our lives - so that our lives might be filled with Your love, joy, wisdom , peace, trust , commitment and perseverance. Those characteristics are what distinguish us as Yours.

Oh Father, have Your way with us, that we may prove faithful and obedient. It is in Your Son's name Jesus Christ that we pray.

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people -- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4
