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.

When You Feel Lonely

Lonely-708x472

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4 – KJV

Heavenly Father, I thank you for your unfailing love, for the renewed mercies each day, and for the countless blessings YOU have given me.  YOU alone are worthy of  praise, honor and glory.  YOU are my refuge and my strength, who carries me when I fall, who comforts me when I am down, and who wipes away all my tears in times of great sorrow.  YOU hold me by my right hand.

Dear GOD, YOU see my heart and know my thoughts.  Nothing is hidden from YOU.  I am grieving, my heart is not at peace. Life’s pressure seems so overwhelming. The challenges of life surrounds me and it feels like I am all  alone carrying these burdens.  Thank YOU for reminding me that my Redeemer and Lord Jesus Christ is always with me in happiness, in sorrow, and in pain. Thank YOU for the gift of peace.  I surrender my life to YOU.  All this I pray in Jesus mighty name. AMEN.

 

 

Prayer for the Youth

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6

Dear LORD, I pray that You protect and guide our youth.  Media has taken control over their minds. The illusion and persuasion of social media sites, violent video games, and carnal movies have infiltrated their way of thinking and have greatly influenced their lives.  I pray for the parents and the elders to be more responsible and cautious on how they treat their children. To train the young ones to do the right and honorable things and to avoid anything that leads to self destruction.  May the adults  act as good examples, to be persistent to correct the younger generation when they see any immoral or unpleasant acts done in front of them. And most of all Heavenly Father, I pray that the youth will become followers of Christ. That they may experience the unconditional love of Jesus in a personal way.

May glory, honor and power be Yours now and forevermore. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Pray for God’s Will

It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; – 1 Thessalonians 4:3 NIV

LORD, I surrender my life to You. Teach me how to walk according to Your ways, to avoid anything that might defile my body which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. I pray that my thoughts, speech, and action give You glory. I know that I am responsible for my words and my actions Lord, that it gives a ripple effect to anyone who hears anything I say, who sees what I do. For some people, I am their only Bible because they don’t study nor read Your scriptures.  Protect me dear Lord from the schemes of the evil one. I long to walk with You, to follow You and to please You all the days of my life. May Your will be done and not mine. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

 

Praying for a Godly Spouse

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
  -1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV
Father in Heaven, You loved us first, You showed us what love really means by giving Your only Son to die on the cross so that we can be with You for eternity for those who believe. Thank you for the gift of salvation. Thank you for loving me.
The world is portraying a different kind of love, a love that is careless, sinful, and selfish. Protect me LORD from all the plans of the enemy and lead me to where You want me to be. I know You have prepared someone for me, someone who will love me for who I am. Someone who is God-fearing and sensitive. Give me the patience to wait and not to be in a hurry. Help me to fully trust in Your perfect will. I give You all the glory and honor now and forevermore.  In the Mighty Name of JESUS CHRIST I pray.  Amen.
