The Privilege of Prayer

The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. – James 5:16

Holy Father,

Thank You for the gift of prayer, for the privilege to talk to You, to pour out our innermost feelings, to share our deepest thoughts, to ask for guidance and to worship You.  May we never neglect this wonderful gift.  Thank You for hearing our prayers, with a yes, a no or a wait.. We believe that You only want what is best for us. Therefore, we trust in You.  Increase our faith and remove our unbelief and our worries.  In the powerful name of Jesus Christ.  Amen.

A Renewed Spirit

Psalm51_10

Isaiah 40:31
“Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.”

Father in Heaven, everyday I come and seek Your face.  Cleanse my heart and teach me Your ways that I may dwell in Your house forever. Quench my thirsty spirit and restore the longing of my heart.  Lead me through times of troubles and trials.  I know I am not fighting alone, You hold me by my right hand.  Thank You.  Blessing, Glory and Honor are Yours now and ever more.  In Jesus Mighty Name I  pray. Amen.

Philippians 4:8
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. – New International Version

Heavenly Father, keep me away from anything or anyone that will hinder me from obeying Your laws.  Lead and guide me as I wake up each day.  I pray that I will always put the learnings that I get from reading Your word into practice or else I am just deceiving myself if I don’t follow it.  May I encourage my family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to live a life that is noble and admirable.  Guard my actions, words and thoughts to be focused only on Jesus my Savior and King.  In His mighty name I pray.  Amen.

Be Content.

5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”  -Hebrews 13:5 NIV

Father in Heaven, thank You for providing all our needs according to the riches of Your glory in Christ Jesus.  May we live a life that does not depend on money, nor on our status in life but in You alone.  Teach us to be humble and to give generously when we have plenty and teach us to be content if we don’t have enough.  We lift up all our worries and fears to You dear God and we rest in Your presence.  Thank you Lord.

In Jesus mighty name we pray.  Amen.

A Prayer for Peace

John 16:33 New International Version (NIV)
33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Heavenly Father, we pray for the innocent children who are in the center of wars and conflicts in the Middle East.  Protect and comfort them in these times of turmoil.  May all the believers around the world pray for their safety and deliverance.  And most of all, we pray for peace among these countries.  May nations get along and may the leaders put aside their personal interest, ego and pride.  We depend and trust in You Lord.  All these we ask in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ.  Amen.

The Power of God’s Love

New International Version
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:13

Father in Heaven, thank You for the salvation through Christ Jesus.  May we always remember that this is the kind of love we need to give to others.  I pray that the power of the Holy Spirit give me boldness and selflessness to show others the grace, forgiveness and mercy You have showed me for this is the real meaning of love.  I am eternally grateful dear God. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

When all else fails…

Father in Heaven, I get my strength from You.  Forgive me LORD for there are times when I worry about the future and the challenges that I may face.  I easily forget that You are always with me (Matt. 28:20); You hold me by my right hand (Psalm 73:23).  Even at the lowest point in my life, You have sustained me.  Thank you Abba Father for the hope that You have planted in my heart, the peace that surrounds me, and the love that overwhelms me each day.  In Jesus Name, I pray.  Amen.
