Pray With Us
At Smyrna First United Methodist Church, we believe that prayer is a vital part of your relationship with God. When we pray, we are offered the opportunity to be in conversation with Jesus.
There are special times of prayer in every worship service at Smyrna First for prayer requests of our members and guests to be offered up to God. Our vibrant prayer ministry also includes a team dedicated to praying individually over each and every request we receive. It is our privilege to pray for and with you.
Gracious God, we love you, thank you your faithfulness, love and mercy. We pray against the spirit of anti Christ,false witness,terrorism,idolatry, sexual immorality, sorcery,leviathan,jezebel,witchcraft,hatred,wars, pestilences, famine,divination and violence. We ask that your people would humble themselves and repent of their sins and that you would forgive our sins and heal our land. We pray that the spirit of darkness be lifted from America and the scales would be lifted from peoples eyes that they may see the truth and be set free. We pray for a return of your people to the fear of the lord and that the ancient foundations of American be not removed. We pray that Jesus Christ guide the minds of those who govern us to promote the common good according to his will and that the leaders of our nation and the world may have the strength to govern wisely the peoples entrusted to them by the Lord. We pray that you would raise up leaders after Christ own loving heart and bring down those who would seek only their own power and glory. Reveal all corruption and let your justice prevail in the earth. Convict the conscience of any person in position of leadership who fail to serve their people faithfully and cause those who are unfit for office to step down. We pray for revival in our hearts and churches that God would rise up sheperds that are spirit filled, speak the truth in love and manifest the gifts of the holy spirit. Pray the Lord Jesus will grant peace in the land, and we will lie down and no one will make you afraid. Pray that the Lord would remove wild beasts from our land, and the sword will not pass through our country.We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and healing for all of those affected by the coronavirus. Lord in your loving kindness and tender mercies hear our prayers and let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We give you glory for moving by your spirit and answering our prayers.
