Praying for Nathan

On Sunday night on Magic 2CH 1770 when I interviewed Andrew Barry about the journey that he and his son Nathan and family were on, at the end of the interview I led in prayer for Nathan Barry.

Thousands of radio listeners joined me in praying for this young man.

In case you weren't listening and would like to join us in praying for Nathan, press play and pray along. 

Lord God,

You are our shepherd and we come to you as the one who loves us, the everlasting God, the creator of the whole earth, you who never grow faint or weary, who has no limit to your understanding.

Lord, you give strength to weary, you strengthen the powerless, though youths may faint and grow weary and young men stumble and fall, we know that those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength.

And so Lord we pray for Nathan, for Andrew, Ruth, for the other five kids, for their cousins, aunties and uncles and grandparents.

We pray that you might renew their strength. And we claim this promise that they will sore on wings like eagles, that they will run and not grow weary, that they will walk and not grow faint.

Lord, thank you for those conversations that people like Nathan’s Godfather were able to have about the facts - and the fact of the resurrection, the fact of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

And we pray that Nathan along with all would call out that the Lord Jesus is Lord and believe in his heart that God raised him from the dead, and that he would be saved.

Father, we think about you the shepherd who walks us through the deepest valley, through the darkest valley, and we know there is no need to fear, for you are with us, that your rod and staff protect us, they comfort us and guide us.

And Lord as we think about the future, for Nathan, for ourselves, we are just confident that you are doing that work of preparing a table of anointing our heads with oil, of the cup overflowing and the goodness and faithful love will pursue us all the days of our life.

We long Lord to dwell in your house for ever.

And we pray this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen
