forgive us for giving up on prayer – for giving up praying for certain ministries, certain needs, certain people – because it’s been so long and things have only gotten worse, things have only gotten more painful for us as we pray for them. Change our hearts, Father. Help us see them through your eyes. Help us see You as You are. Help us persevere. Lord, right now, call to mind the things we have failed to bring before You. We pray for them now – for the ministries, the situations, the needs, the missionaries, the family members, the friends, the people in the church, the unsaved people of the World, the people who have as yet not entered our prayers. We thank You Father, for being such a forgiving God. We thank You for giving us Salvation through your Son, and the power through Your Holy Spirit to be steadfast in prayer.
