A Prayer for your bible study group

Comments 2 Standard
Heart

    Lord,  I pray for our group this morning, fill us with a  desire to seek you and know you. Thank you Lord that you draw near to those who draw near to you. May we say as David did, “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God”.   Lord, I thank you that you have called each one closer to you to know you,
   Lord, keep my eyes on you and keep me in constant prayer for each one of your precious daughters. Let them know how much you love them even though this love is too great for us to understand. Give them time to spend with you each day even though their lives may be filled with so much the world puts on them, Lord I pray that you would give them the time to study your word and the confidence to go before your throne.
   May this study bring us closer to you, purify our hearts and keep our loyalty on you alone. Show us our wrongs and teach us  the right way.  Keep us from becoming lukewarm or indifferent to you, keep us on the narrow path to salvation.  Lord, I pray that our meetings be like those of the first apostles, full of power, faith and salvation in Christ Jesus. Lord I pray that our lives would change, we would see your amazing power and have a powerful prayer life in Christ.    As we prepare to enter you Holy Place, search our hearts, test us and know our anxious thoughts, show us anything in us that offends you and lead us along the path of everlasting life.
    May the fire of your Holy Spirit fill our hearts and may your power be present  in our gatherings as we come together to pray, worship and study your word.  
  Lord bless their lives as they seek you, give them understanding as they read your word and wisdom in the paths you have set before them.  For those who are downcast or struggling, remind them that You are the lifter of their soul, you hold them by the hand and carry them through. You are our redeeming Savior may you fill their lives with more than enough and pull them out of harms way. Your thoughts are above our thoughts,
O Lord, how can we know the way?  Open our eyes, as you did to Hagar that we can see the hope we have in you, that we know you will never leave us, you are there with us every step of the way. Light the path that we are to go, as we stop, ask and obey your leading.  Your word says that your peace will guard our heart and mind, thank you for such a wonderful gift. Lord, I pray that your supernatural peace would guard our minds and our hearts and that our hearts would meditate on your word as we say “Lord, my heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast”. Truly your glory and mercy is too much for us to understand.
                   Thank you that your ways are above ours, remind us to put our trust in You alone and not in the words of man or the logic of the world. For your ways are far above anything we could think or imagine. Fill our hearts with the Joy that comes from the Holy Spirit, that in whatever condition or situation we are in, we will always praise your great name. You are our banner, our peace, our protector, our shield, our Savior and the God who saves.  Fill us with all wisdom and understanding that we may walk in your ways. Search our heart, O God , and show us anything that is not pleasing to you.  Thank you for drawing near to each of your beloved daughters in this study.  Being in your presence through Jesus Christ and the Power of the Holy Spirit is truly the greatest gift.
                Lord, give us your servants great boldness in proclaiming your name and your Word. Stretch out your hand with healing power and may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus. We remember Lord, that you are the same today, yesterday and tomorrow. You word is send out and it never comes back void, it accomplishes all you want it to accomplish
        We praise you today, we look forward to the day when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Lord bless our group, and look with favor upon your beloved daughters as we draw near to you and our hearts sing praises to  your name.  In Jesus name, Amen
Lord, you are

  1. I wrote this for a small bible study group this summer – it was outside of church, a mix of different walks but I know that each person was brought by God for the study. It was a study on prayer.It was such a great time – every week we shared the great things God was doing in our lives and also praying for each other. Now I’m part of a small group in a church… its a little different.
