“A Pro-Life Prayer”

January 21, 2022

Father, we look at Elijah who took a mighty stand for You during the plague of unbelief that spread throughout the land of Israel. And yet there were moments when he allowed the mindset of the unbelievers, instead of the absolutes stated in Your Word, to weaken him, leading him to think that he was alone in standing true for You. But You sent word to Elijah, that You have a remnant more interested in obeying You than bowing down to the ever-evolving philosophies of one’s generation. When we stand with You, Almighty God, we are a majority no matter the number of evil forces we oppose. Keep us looking upward as we walk onward in the truths of Your Holy Scripture and stand for righteousness, including the protection of the unborn. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Pro-Life Prayer: Father, we thank You for the courageous girls and women who, in the most difficult of circumstances, choose to give life over choosing to dispense of their “problem”. We thank You for the vast groups of men and women who lend support to crisis pregnancies, to those who take in and raise children who are given up for adoption. We thank You for those who have dedicated their lives to this tremendous cause, keeping it very much alive, so that those who accept it as a viable option due to its legalization in 1973 will come to realize that Your Word is the first and final authority on life, not the legislation and judicial fiats of our day.

Bless those who speak, those who march, and those who work among pregnant girls and women who are presently in the very midst of making a life or death decision regarding their unborn child. We also pray for those who made the wrong choice to abort, that they may find Your enduring grace that brings healing and restoration. In many instances, You have used their troubling experience to be an influencing voice for others to make a right choice. We commit the Pro-Life cause to You this day, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

“A Prayer During Times Of Confusion And Doubt”

January 20, 2022

Father, You alone are my Rock, my Fortress, and my salvation. By trusting in You with all my heart I won’t be shaken. I choose not to lean on my own understanding but will lean on You instead, acknowledging You in all my ways, being confident that You go before me and direct my paths according to Your sovereign plan. Not only do you guide, instruct, and provide for me here and now, but You also are preparing for me a dwelling place in the house of the Lord forever. Keep me faithful and trusting until you transport me to heaven I pray. Amen.

Psalm 62:6; Proverbs 3:5,6, Psalm 23:6

“A Prayer For One Another”

January 19, 2022

Father, we know that each person’s life touches other lives, that none of us lives to ourselves and none of us dies to ourselves (Romans 14:7). Some individuals help us strive to be better people and some make us want to avoid being around them. May we, like the Apostle Paul, in his second missionary journey to Philippi, take away the good we see and pray for that which is lacking in ourselves, in others, and in our dire circumstances. Though Paul was thrown in prison he did not leave Philippi licking his wounds but rather rejoicing in those whose lives were changed such as Lydia and the Philippian jailer. May we also find joy, even in undesirable circumstances, so that we can spur others on to love and good works through Christ who enables us to do so. Amen.

“A Prayer For The Fatherless”

January 18, 2022

Father, we count our family as the most sacred relationship established on earth. You placed us in family units so we can be nurtured in love and increase in stature and wisdom, while learning responsibility alongside independence in small and big ways. We give thanks to You for Your expressed love shown to us through our parents. For those whose mother or father were absent physically and/or emotionally we’re so blessed and reassured to know that You are a loving Father to the fatherless and motherless, that Your love is all-sufficient to meet our deepest longing and to mend our broken hearts. Thank You for Your sufficient, unending love. Amen.

“A Prayer Of Preparation”

January 17, 2022

Father, it’s my desire to have the same mindset as William Featherstone who, following his conversion at the young age of 16, penned these words of commitment: “I’ll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death, And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath; And say when the death dew lies cold on my brow, If ever I loved thee, My Jesus ‘tis now.” Whether I’m young or old, healthy or sick, wealthy or poor, I choose to prepare my heart for eternity here and now so that I will be assured of endless delight upon my first breath in heaven. I want to be prepared, persevering and prayerful while journeying here below. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

“A Prayer Of Preparation”

January 14, 2022

Father, we are grateful for the fire of Your Spirit that ignites us to be strong in our faith, wise in our understanding, and obedient in our service to You. May we be eager to listen to Your Spirit and His promptings as we fulfill our duties this day. When the flaming arrows come our way may we ready to use the divinely appointed extinguisher of the shield of faith. Amen.

“A Prayer Of Sacrifice Of Praise”

January 13, 2022

Father, as we give praise to You we are offering our heartfelt thanks for who You are and for all that You do on our behalf. As we mature in our walk with You we realize that there are many occasions when we must offer a sacrifice of praise since it doesn’t always come easily nor often enough. It is in those circumstances that we willfully choose to praise You out of obedient hearts desirous of pleasing You and glorifying Your name. May our words be fruitful and our thoughts praiseworthy in the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

“A Prayer Of Faith’s Resolve”

January 12, 2022

Father, help me to thirst and hunger for Your Living Word where I find convincing truths to assure me, “This is the way. Walk in it.” I want to keep my heart fixed upon You and my mind certain of Your truths in this age where false religions abound and the broad way just gets broader. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life and I gain entry to You, my Father, only through Jesus the Son. I’ve got a made up mind and I’m going to follow You during the good and the bad times, the lean and plentiful periods. Whether I stand with many or whether I stand alone, I choose to wholeheartedly follow You. Erase any doubts, fears, or wavering opinions that I might entertain so that I am wholeheartedly devoted to the one true God. Amen.

“A Prayer For Family Unity”

January 11, 2022

Father, we can all be thankful for the good that comes from brothers and sisters who walk together in unity. Since our journey below is hard, long, and full of challenges it is such a blessing when family members come together to lovingly support and encourage one another in the small and big matters of life. Enable us to do our part to keep our family united in love, respectful of our differences, and dutiful in carrying out our responsibilities as a family member. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

“A Prayer Of Thanks For Spiritual Sight”

January 10, 2022

Father, I thank You for the marvelous transaction that took place when You delivered me from the domain of darkness and transferred me into the kingdom of Your Son in whom I have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. There is no earthly transaction that will ever bring about such a major change in my life or affect my future such as Your mighty deliverance. I was lost in darkness without hope but now, because of Your glorious deliverance and transfer, I walk in endless hope in the radiant light of Jesus. I once was blind but now I see and have been found by Your love and kept by Your grace. Praise be to Your name! Amen.
