Please take a moment to relax your mind and humble your heart to focus on Christ.
Allow God, to be the only person on your mind while you read this prayer.
If we can take the time to read long jokes, stories, etc., we should give the same respect to this prayer. Friends that pray together, stay together.
Dear Lord, I thank You for this day. I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God. You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you. I ask now for Your forgiveness.
Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.
Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things. Let me not whine and whimper over
things I have no control over. Let me continue to see sin through God's eyes and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and
receive the forgiveness of God.
And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example -to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits. I know that when I
can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak. Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way. I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood.
I pray for those who don't know You intimately. I pray for those that don't believe. But I thank you that I can believe.
I believe that God changes people and God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers. For each and every family member in their households.
I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.
I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly.
This is my prayer. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Heavenly Father, we are constantly learning about what it means to
be reasonable people. We want to understand more of life, reason out the things
that seem somewhat over the top, and hand our thoughts over to You. Sometimes,
Lord, we spend so much time thinking and looking for reasonable answers that we
forget to simply trust that You have all things in Your hand and we don't really
have to bother about all the details. Help us to appreciate the fact that we
don't always have to know the "why" of something even when it doesn't seem
Father, our world today often seems scary and out of control. It
feels like we are caught up in national insanity and everything is flip-flopped
and overbaked and sour smelling, but we don't know what to do about it. We don't
know how to get it back to feeling reasonable again
We know that You have already gone ahead of us and that You know
all the outcomes and will walk with us as we go onward. We believe, Lord, that
the most reasonable thing we can do is follow You. Help us to embrace Your ways
and live with a heart of joy. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
Read Isaiah 1:18 .
Heavenly Father, we are often fooled into thinking that being
"remarkable" has something to do with recognition for a talent or a skill. We
think that it might be attached to those who we see on the big screen or those
who enter into politics. Help us to see that we are defined by the remarkable
things we do for You.
We are Your children and we are remarkable each time we lift up
someone in need who walks beside us. We are remarkable each time we share Your
love with someone who was just waiting for us to open that door.
Remind us, Lord, as we work through our endless chores that the
duties that occupy our time at home or at work or anywhere else can become
heavenly ones if we do them for You. We might just discover that what we have
done is simply remarkable because it is stamped with Your love and approval.
Bless each of us as we step out in the wisdom of love and genuine kindness to
create a brighter day for someone else. Help us to live for You today. In Jesus'
name we pray. Amen.
Read James 3:17
Opgestane en lewende Christus, dit moes al somer gewees het in my geestelike lewe.
U het aan my lentelewe geskenk en ek loof u Naam daarvoor.
Ek kom pleit nou om groei tot geestelike volwasse wording.
Ek bely met skaamte dat ek dilwels so ongehoorsaam is:
Dat ek so geheg is aan wêreldse genot en so min belang stel in geestelike dinge;
So traag is om my siel te voed met u Woord;
so onverskillig is oor die vreugde wat U wil gee;
So onwillig om met toewyding vir U te werk en getuig;
So haastig om te ontspan en so traag om te bid
So gou om myself te behaag en so traag om ander te dien.
Liefdevolle en genadige Meester, Ek ontvang so graag en gee so min. Ek is so vroom in my woorde. En so gebrekkig in dade so onverbiddelik teenoor my naaste en so toegeeflik teenoor myself So gou om te kritiseer en so gekrenk as ander met my fout vind.
Geen wonder nie, Heer, dat die somer nie in my geestelike lewe wil deurbreek nie.
Genadige heiland. Skenk my nogeens u vergifnis: gee my krag om voortaan op oorwinningsgrond te lewe; om in die wingerdstok te bly sodat ek soete somervrugte kan dra. Gee dat ek die somerpad van geloof en heiligmaking sal bewandel sodat ek meer aan my hemelse voorbeeld gelyk sal word.
Ek bid dit op grond van u soenverdienste, In die naam van my verlosser Here Jesus Christus. Amen
When I finally shut up, I can hear God’s voice. When you are out of words, God speaks. When I don’t know what to pray for, God steps in and says, “Let me help you.” Prayer is learning about what God has already done. Prayer is giving God permission to handle what you can’t.
-- Melinda Clements
The great fault of the children of God is that they do not continue in prayer; they do not go on praying; they do not persevere. If they desire anything for God's glory, they should pray until they get it.
-- George Mueller
God allows good and bad into our lives and we can trust Him with both. Trusting God when the miracle does not come, when the urgent prayer gets no answer, when there is only darkness... this is the kind of faith God values most of all.
It is not necessary to make long prayers, but it is essential to be much alone with God, waiting at His door, heartening for His voice, lingering in the garden of Scripture for the coming of the Lord God in the dawn or cool of the day. No number of meetings, no fellowship with Christian friends, no amount of Christian activity can compensate for the neglect of the still hour.
-- F.B. Meter

Lord, I thank You for suffering and dying on the cross for me, and for rising again to defeat death and hell. I believe my enemy is defeated because of what You have done. Thank You that You have given me all authority over him. I have faith that by Your Holy Spirit I can successfully resist the devil and he must flee from me.
Show me when I am not moving in faith. Teach me to use that authority You have given me to see the enemy defeated in every area of my life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Read Matthew 17:20
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. It is food to my soul, and I cannot live without it. Enable me to truly comprehend its deepest meaning. Give me greater understanding than I have ever had before, and reveal to me the hidden treasures buried there. Speak to my heart all that You want me to know. Help me to hear Your voice. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
