17 pray continually, 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (NIV)

Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of prayer.  For allowing us to reach out to You anytime we need Your guidance and grace.  Forgive us LORD if we sometimes lack the zeal to pray.  We focus on worthless things instead of spending quality time with You.  Teach us how to use our time on earth wisely.  Please help us remember to pray without ceasing in all circumstances for this is pleasing to You.  Our purpose for existence is to glorify You.  We praise You LORD.  In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

 

Time spent with GOD is time well spent.

Avoid Temptations

3.6.TemptationToAvoid_160664411

13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. -James 1:13-18 NIV

Heavenly Father, I ask for strength, strength to flee from any kind of temptation, away from the alluring things the world offers.  May I see every temptation as an opportunity to prove that the enemy is wrong, and that I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.  Thank you for giving me discernment to know what is good from evil, to know that if I give in to temptation, the satisfaction will only last a moment but the consequences will last lifetime. Thank you for your protection LORD. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Waiting…

The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. -Lamentations 3:25

Father in Heaven, You know what is best for me.  I submit to Your will.  Forgive me for being impatient, wanting to get results immediately.  The world teaches people to pursue their wants, their desires, their dreams without hesitation, taking control of their own life.  You taught me that these are just temporary, what really matters is my relationship with You.  Living a life that glorifies Your Name. This is my ultimate goal.  Teach me how to wait Lord, in everything.  And while I wait, help me to see things through Your eyes. Help me to see the beauty of waiting.  The best is yet to come…the best is yet to come.  You are my portion forever. I love you LORD. In Jesus Name I pray.  Amen.

Prayer for the Worriers

jeremiah-29-11-lg

Heavenly Father, help me to trust in You. Remove all the doubts in my heart. I worry about everything; my future, my finances, my relationships.  I didn’t even give You the chance to let Your unfailing love sink into my heart. Forgive me LORD for being doubtful and fearful about life. I often forget that You are in charge and You have the best plan for each one of us. We just need to trust in You. Thank You for Your Word and Your promises.

In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Philippians 4:11-13 New International Version (NIV)

11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength

16c1763

Heavenly Father, teach me how to be contented with what I have and only ask for what I need. To be thankful for the life You have blessed me, for my family,  my friends, my work, and for the daily provisions. Let me not desire for what the world is after: fame, power, lust, and riches, but I ask that You fill my heart with CONTENTMENT, COMPASSION, AND LOVE.  You are the source of all good things and as long as I have You, I lack nothing. Thank you dear Lord. This I pray in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

1 Corinthians 11:3 (NIV)

But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man,[a] and the head of Christ is God.

Father in Heaven, thank you for the gift of marriage.  You have made my life complete by giving me a man who understands and loves me the way I am. I pray that my husband will always depend on You in every decision that he makes. May he always put You first in every aspect of his life, especially our marriage. Lord, I pray that he will learn to know you more and more each day as he faces triumphs, trials, and hardships.  Mold him to be the man that You planned him to be.  Give him the patience and the courage to lead our family, a family that honors You. All these I ask in Jesus Name. Amen.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

 

Father in Heaven, I know You have a plan for me.  A plan that is better than what I have in mind,  a plan to make me prosper and not to harm me.  I believe that things happen for a reason and that once I trust in You, my future is secure, I just need to fully trust in Your guidance. I lift up my worries and cares O Lord. I ask that I can find a job where I will be able to contribute my skills and talents, and where I can give glory and honor to Your name.  Please remove all my doubts and fears and let me just focus on You, on Your goodness and on Your great love.  In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
