Lord our God,
May our lives be awakened, for you send your Spirit to blow through heaven and earth and you stir everything to life. May we long for your Spirit’s prompting. Grant that we not be overpowered by evil and sin. May we be born anew to be fighters for the highest good on earth, which leads into heaven. Hear the prayers of all people far and near who are sighing for the Savior. We pray for them all as we pray for ourselves, and you will hear our prayer.

December 13 Prayer 2
You are the LORD, as Isaiah so faithfully penned …we are not. You form light and darkness, bring prosperity and disaster …You do all these things. You are in control. We are not sovereign over our lives. You are. We are not in control of the created universe. You are. Father, when we are bent on our way and our timing, please strip our hearts of the pride and selfishness which prevents us from surrendering to You. We cannot make another human heart understand our point of view, God. And it’s frustrating! Often, we feel misunderstood, wrongly accused, and slighted by the offense. Help us to surrender our perspective of every situation, Father.
December 13 Prayer 3
We confess we do not immediately acknowledge You when we are offended or angry. Father, we fail so often to filter our emotions through the truth of who You are and what Your Word instructs us, so particularity to do in order to be peacemakers. We pray to submit and surrender our gut reactions and longstanding grudges into Your hands, Father. By Your strength, usher forgiveness and compassion into our hearts and minds, allowing us to forgive and love others as we are meant to. Pull offense out of our grip, Father, by Your strength! And replace it with Your peace, which surpasses all understanding.
December 13 Prayer 4
You are always there waiting for me. Sometimes I get bogged down with the concerns of this life. Grant that I may be still more often. To know Your peace, Your calm.
December 13 Prayer 5
Make things happen. Our prayers today are for the full surrender of our lives into Your hands. Things we would give our lives to mend, we turn over to You, Father. Because we can’t fix it in our strength. We need You, Author of every heart, to help us reach another to achieve reconciliation. Do it, Father, as only You can. You do these things, Lord. You are the God of miracles. As we surrender, we pray for the littering of Your miracles to come to fruition in our lives …not just for our comfort or satisfaction, peace or prosperity. Let all these things be done for Your glory, Lord. Because Peace is truly something You accomplish. In Jesus’ Names.
December 13 Prayer 6
May the glorious intercession of the Virgin and Martyr Saint Lucy give us new heart, we pray, O Lord, so that we may celebrate her heavenly birthday in this present age and so behold things eternal. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.
December 13 Prayer 7
I thank you for the privilege to be called your son. I thank you for declaring me a winner because, through Christ, I am more than a conqueror. When Jesus comes, we will be free of anything holding us back. But I pray that you give me the power to fight anything that may stand again me.
