Day 17: Prayer for First Responders

“Dear God, we pray over those who serve and protect us everyday. We ask you to protect and watch over them and their families and to bless them for their sacrifice. We also ask for you to watch over the families of those who have fallen in the line of duty. Give them peace and comfort during their time of grief and mourning. Thank you Father for allowing us to be born in a country where we have first responders to emergency that serve and protect the people. In Jesus name, Amen.”

Day 18: Prayer for our Missionaries

“God, I pray the people you have called from our church to go to other countries and share your Gospel. I pray that you would continue to provide the resources they need for life and for ministry. Be with their families and protect them from harm. May every step they take be led by your Spirit and I pray that your love and goodness would continue to be known in every part of the world and may the darkest parts of this world have the light of your mercy shine upon them in an ever-increasing way.”

Day 19: Prayer of Thankfulness (Thanksgiving Day)

“Lord, today I am so thankful for your kindness, mercy, and love. I am so thankful for all of your provision, your guidance and your continued forgiveness.” Take a few moments to make a list of all the things you are thankful for. Share that list with God. If you are able, share that list with your friends or family.

Day 20: Prayer for Those in the Armed Forces

“Dear God, I pray right now for those in service to their country. I lift up our Army, Navy, Airforce, and all of those who serve our country on a daily basis to you Father. We are so appreciative for their willingness to risk their lives to keep others safe. Please be with them and have your hand of favor over their lives. Protect them and take care of their families. Allow others in the community, including me, to be a source of encouragement to them. In Jesus name, Amen.”
