“A Prayer For Singing God’s Praises”

February 23, 2017

Praying man Father, I will sing unto You, my Lord, as long as I live. I will sing praise to You, my King, while I have my being. My meditation of You shall be sweet, for I will be glad in the Lord. I will bless You at all times. Your praise shall continually be in my mouth and my soul shall make her boast in You, Lord, and the humble will hear thereof and be glad. May others magnify You, along with me, as we exalt Your name together in word and song. Amen.

Prayer based on several Psalms

“A Prayer For Walking In The Light”

February 22, 2017

Praying man Father, we choose to follow You all the days of our life. We find great assurance as we’re reminded that we will not be engulfed by the surrounding darkness of evil but instead Your radiant light will guide us to eternal blessing. Help us to walk by faith and not by sight holding onto Your promises as we continue to build a solid foundation through Your Holy Word. Help us to “walk in the light”. It is in the Name of Jesus that we pray. Amen.

“A Prayer During The Time Of Trial”

February 21, 2017
Praying manFather, in today’s text, we notice that You were with Joseph “while” he was in the midst of a tremendous trial, due to no fault of his own. In fact, he was suffering because of the strong, moral stand he took in being a trustworthy servant. You don’t forsake us when we’re undergoing trial but You are right there with us showing us Your grace and favor, though it may be obscured by the gloomy overshadowing trial. You use Scriptures, devotional thoughts, sermons and fellow believers to bring us encouragement, instruction, and inspiration. They help us to weather the howling storms of doubts and fears in the troubling chapters of our life.  Help us to trust You as step by step You lead us on our earthly pilgrimage. Amen

“A Prayer For Our Final Appointment”

February 17, 2017

Praying man Father, I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, my soul knows that very well. Your eyes saw my unformed body and yet all the days You ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be. I’m so thankful that wherever I go Your Spirit goes with me. I cannot flee from Your presence nor would I want to since I am protected and guided by Your righteous right hand. I want to be faithful to You and to Your cause all the days of my life until the final appointment when You call me to be with You in heaven. Amen.

See Psalm 139

“A Prayer For Patience In Spiritual Understanding”

February 16, 2017

Praying man Father, there are many obstacles that will lead us astray if our eyes become fixed on the obstacles. Instead we want to fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who set His eyes on the throne of God, enabling Him to endure the cross, its shame and agony. Fix our eyes on the goal of heaven where all will finally be made perfectly clear when we see Jesus face to face. In the meantime sustain us through Your mercy, grow our faith, and help us to take as many as possible with us to our eternal home in heaven. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

“A prayer For Steadfast Obedience”

February 15, 2017

Praying manFather, as we read about Moses we learn a great deal from his act of obedience. Not only did his choice to experience mistreatment along with Your people provide an exodus for the Israelites, but it also provided a Biblical foundation for our lives throughout the centuries to our present day. We’ve gained so much from the spiritual truths taught through Moses’ applied wisdom, his discipline, and his obedience in recording Your truths and principles. Help us not to partake of the forbidden fruit that litters the path of life You have laid before us, as You keep our eyes on the eternal pleasures that await us as we walk in obedience to You. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

“A Prayer For Love”

February 14, 2017

Praying man Father, You teach us that we are to love one another unreservedly. The love You give us for others goes beyond our own natural inclinations. It is a love that motivates us to give without expecting anything in return. More often than not we fall short of extending this kind of love to our spouse and other loved ones. Only with Your continued help can we set aside our own expectations and learn to love the way You intend by always protecting, always trusting, always hoping, and always persevering with those You’ve brought into our lives.  Amen.

“A Prayer For Generational Faithfulness”

February 13, 2017

Praying man Father, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Your mercy endures to all generations since You created human life. Your truths are timeless and Your provisions are abundant to those who call upon your name. Help us to declare Your faithfulness to our own generation and to the generations that follow. Thank you for our ancestors who proclaimed Your faithfulness to their children who in turn passed on spiritual truths to us. And we now have the blessing and responsibility of proclaiming Your faithfulness to our children. Generation by generation we proclaim the salvation that comes through faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.”

“A Prayer For God’s Power”

February 10, 2017

Praying man Father, once again we declare our allegiance to You, for it is Yours’ alone. Like the prophet Elijah, we want people to know that You are the one true God and all that You do, You do in love for us and for our eternal future. We depend on You alone to save us. Only You can help us, protecting us like a shield. It is in You that our hearts rejoice, for we are trusting in Your holy name. May Your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in You alone. Amen.

See Psalm 33:20-22

“A Prayer For Courage To Speak Out”

February 9, 2017

Praying man Father, we won’t abandon our convictions nor lose our compassion when we follow You without reservation or compromise. We follow You and seek no other master. We do not want to be silent about Your work in our lives, but we want to provide a Biblical answer to all who ask about the hope that we have, and we want to do this with compassion, gentleness, and respect so that those who might find fault with the messenger will focus their attention on the message we share about You, our Master, Creator, and Redeemer! We will not be deterred from speaking up though our message may be unpopular or fall upon unreceptive hearts, for we choose to follow You with our lives, with our voice, and with obedient hearts. Amen.

 

See I Peter 3:14-18
