“A Prayer For A Healthy Craving”

May 5, 2021

Father, we lift our cup to You for a fresh filling of Your Holy Spirit that refreshes, invigorates, encourages, convicts and guides us into all truths. We want to be vigilant in our spiritual walk, never sighing at old truths but making them the unchanging foundation on which we build newly understood truths and personal experiences in which You reveal Yourself to us. We will continue to grow up in our salvation as we partake of all that You have provided to meet our spiritual needs and nourish us in the faith. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

“A Prayer For Living In Green Pastures”

May 4, 2021

Father, Your principles teach me that time spent reading the Word, meditating upon it and applying it to my life makes a vital difference in my Christian walk. Spending time with other believers and learning from their examples, as well as their testimony, is another way You’ve brought positive change into my life. Hearing sermons that cause me to think and often move me to more fully surrender my heart to You has brought about foundational growth in my life. I’m grateful for those who love me enough to keep me accountable to the commitment I’ve made to live a godly life. Thank You for the spiritual health and vitality You provide as I graze on the bounty of Your abundant life-giving “green pastures”. Amen.

“A Prayer To Faithfully Follow”

May 3, 2021

Father, we choose to follow You faithfully on this side of glory until You bring to pass that climactic event when we will join the saints from every generation, from every tribe and nation. We will blend in one accord through music, praise, and worship in that yonder sacred throng to lift up the name of Jesus, to give unending thanks for all that You have done for us and for all that You have provided for us in our eternal dwelling place. Amen.

“A Prayer Of Proper Humility”

April 30, 2021

Father, we do well to apply Bildad’s counsel to Job to our lives, considering that we are but a worm in comparison to Your greatness. You give grace to the humble and oppose the proud. We acknowledge that we are nothing, of no greater value than an earthworm or worse yet, a maggot, in comparison with Your glorious Son, Jesus Christ, who left the throne of heaven and emptied Himself of majestic glory to make His place among us. We are eternally indebted to Your magnificent love that provided a way through Jesus to loosen sin’s shackles and for us to be reshaped into Your likeness. It is in Jesus’ name that we pray. Amen.

“A Prayer For Dealing With Life’s Obstacles”

April 29, 2021

Father, I want to keep my life embedded in the Rock of Ages. Whether our trials are emotional, physical, spiritual, financial or relational we are absolutely dependent on You for everything that we have need of. You work in the supernatural realm while we are confined to the natural unless Your power is manifested in our lives. Help us not to resent or be embarrassed by our weaknesses, but invite Your Holy Spirit power to work through them, so that we can learn endurance, find strength and seek to glorify You. Give us confidence in the Bible truth, “In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Amen.

“A Prayer For Peace In God’s Will”

April 28, 2021

Father, we thank You for the recorded scriptures where Jesus tells His hearers, “Be ready, for in an hour you think not, the Son of Man will come again.” As believers, we live with anticipation of Your unannounced return to take us with you into heaven. But less often we contemplate that this might be the very day that our lives on earth are cut short due to some unforeseeable accident or any other manner You might choose to call us home. We want to live in such a way, that if this is the last day we have on earth, our next step will be waking up in glory and walking the streets of gold in the new city of Jerusalem. Amen.

“A Prayer For Strength In Aging”

April 27, 2021

Father, we who have received Christ early in our young years are grateful for the solid and lasting foundation we’re building that will provide comfort, solidity, and needed perspective when we approach the golden years of our life here on earth. The older we get the more this earth and all that it has to offer grows dimmer while the lights of glory grow ever brighter. It happens because our eyes are fixed on the eternal city not built with human hands but fashioned and designed by the Builder of the Ages. Keep us true, Lord Jesus, for there’s a race to be run and there are still victories to be won on this side of heaven. We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

“A Prayer During The Time Of Trial”

April 26, 2021

Father, way too often our emotions direct our thoughts and behaviors influencing us in what we say, think and do. But Scripture informs us that You are working on our behalf even when we can’t feel it, even when we can’t see it. Ours is a faith walk, where the substance of things hoped for is not always evidenced by the natural eye. But when we look with our spiritual vision we see the greater perspective where fruitful growth takes place in the midst of our waiting on You to work all things out, for Your glory and honor, and for our greater good. Amen.

“A Prayer For Blessing In Work”

April 23, 2021

Father, help us to view work as a blessing from You that gives us opportunity to participate in gathering adequate provisions for our family as well as making a positive difference in our work setting. We seek to overcome challenges in the workplace and are able to do so because we do our work heartily, as for You, Lord primarily. We seek to be just and diligent in our work not just when we’re being observed by our supervisors or fellow-employees, but we remain aware that You are always watching over us. We don’t resent or dwell on the negatives of our work or workplace, but recognize how we serve You well when we work with a cheerful heart. And we can do so knowing that our reward is not just the weekly paycheck but most importantly the glorious eternal inheritance we receive in heaven. Keep us faithful we pray. Amen.

“A Prayer For Godly Friendships”

April 22, 2021

Father, thank You for the family and friends who refresh me; their loyalty, understanding and kindnesses bring about many pleasant memories. Sometimes You use them not only to bring encouragement but they also challenge me to grow in areas where I might otherwise be stagnant. When it comes to friends Jesus stands out above them all, for He is a friend that is with me every moment of every day unceasingly revealing to me His loyalty, His favor, His forgiveness and His tender care. His friendship shows me how to be a true, lasting, and loyal friend to others. Amen.
