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.

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.

eye

2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. – Hebrews 12:2 NIV

Heavenly Father, I pray that my eyes will only focus on Jesus and not on problems or people. People will only disappoint me, problems will only pull me down, but Jesus is my strength and my shield.  Teach me to always be obedient and humble, to come to You and seek Your face, and to never get distracted with what is happening around me. May I always give to others the love that You give me, share the peace that only Jesus can give.  Use me to be a distributor of Your blessings to others who are in need. Forgive me for being selfish and self centered. I trust in You to mold me to the person that You want me to be. I claim the promises through Jesus Christ my Savior and King. In His name I pray. Amen.

“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.” – Matthew 24:6 NIV

Lord, the world is in great turmoil. We see deaths, calamities, crimes, and terrorism that are being broadcasted everyday either in television, newspaper or in social media. You never failed to warn us that these events will happen. But because of the busyness of life we missed to take note of these.  Forgive us for spending less time to read and understand your Word.  We pray for the nations that are under attack by terrorists, may the innocent people, especially the children be safe from harm’s way.  May You protect them from those people who are heartless and savages.  Most of all, we pray for peace over these countries.

May Your will be done Heavenly Father.  We trust in You.

These we ask in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ. Amen

I am 300x

Lord, You are the giver of life and it is only fitting that You are the only one who can take it away. I pray for those  mothers who think that abortion is the only way to solve their problems. It has been two straight days that I have been reading news about premature babies thrown in the dumpster and I am sure that there are hundreds if not thousands of these cases happening every single day.  It really hurts to see those lifeless little angels abandoned in a very inhumane way.

I am a woman too, who is even asking for just one child that I can call my own, and seeing all the images of those murdered little ones breaks my heart into pieces. You know it so well, Lord.

May those pregnant mothers who are thinking about getting an abortion be enlightened and see the beauty and the blessing a child can bring to their life. May they feel guilty even for just thinking about it and may they ask for Your forgiveness dear God. I ask all these in the Name of Jesus Christ my Savior and Redeemer. Amen.

Heavenly Father,

We pray for our newly elected president. May he always seek Your guidance and wisdom before making any decision. May he always put You first and our nation second on his priorities and not his own personal gain. Please give him the assurance that if he follows Your will, You are going to guide him and protect him from his enemies and from future adversities.

We also pray for our countrymen to follow his leadership and the better changes that he will make. May we all be united, one nation, under Your love and mercy. Thank you Lord for Your faithfulness. These things we pray in Jesus Name. Amen.

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.
 -Psalm 68:5

Father in Heaven, thank You for being present in times of despair and loneliness. You comfort us when we feel down and hurt. Open our eyes that we may see how fortunate we are to have You as our Heavenly Father and our Provider. May we count our blessings one by one. Father God, I pray for those who have lost their husbands and fathers. May their suffering and pain bring them closer to You.

I pray for every widow around the world to rest and enjoy in Your presence, and not be persuaded to do things that will give disgrace to themselves and to You. And if You will, they be remarried to a person who will love them unconditionally just like how Jesus Christ loves us.

I pray for those children who have lost their parents and whose parents have willingly left them. Give them the courage and the will to continue living. Give them hope. May their hearts be filled with forgiveness and love. Thank you for being a father to the fatherless and defender to the widows. Your love overflows with grace and mercy. You never fail Lord.

Praises and honor be unto Thee, these things I pray in Jesus powerful name. Amen.
