A Prayer of Thanksgiving to the Master Builder

Father God,

I thank You Lord that You are a God of reconciliation. We are able to reconcile with You in spite of our sins because of the finished work of Christ. Just like the wall around Jerusalem, our relationships get torn down by the enemy. When You see that it’s time to rebuild You give us Your favor for that relationship just like You did with Nehemiah. You have the master plans to our lives Lord. It is when we look to You that we are given the instructions for the next build. I love Your plans for my life. Even the darkest days have ended up with so much grace that I can only be thankful in the end. You didn’t leave me to die in my grief when my brothers died, when my parents disowned me, or when I was faced with bi-lateral cancers, You were there! You are the Builder of my faith, the Lover of my heart, and the Peace in my storms. There is none like You! I worship the very thought of Your name! Thank You Lord that You have given me this day to build my faith, my friendships, my family, and my love for knowing more of You. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.

A Prayer of Service

Father God,

You are the Great Physician who has the power to heal and forgive our sins. I pray Lord that we as disciples of Christ would follow the example of those who did not quit when a paralytic needed healing. They carried a man who had no use of his legs to the feet of Jesus. To get there they had to find their way through the masses of people who gathered to hear Jesus teach. When they couldn’t find a way through to the house, they persevered and went on top of the house. They went so far as to remove the roof in order that this man be healed. They lowered him through the roof to receive healing from Jesus. Let us be more and more like the people carrying the paralytic. Let us serve others in such a self-less manner that the world can see Your glory. Let us not seek validation or accolades but let the glory go to our God. Show us the paralytic in our neighborhood, our workplace, or our every day places. Whisper to us what You would have us do in Your name and then send us Jesus. Let our service be a Testament to Your goodness and mercy. In Jesus name, AMEN.

When they could not come near Him due to the crowding, they uncovered the roof where He was. When they had broken it open, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”

A Prayer to Defeat Fear

Father God,

Because You are always with me, I can look fear in the eye and not be shaken. You strengthen me when I falter. You embolden me when I lack courage. I pray Father that Your righteous right hand always be upon me. Lead me in the way You have for me. You are my helper when I can’t figure our the way. Thank You Father for the precious way You love me. I ask today Lord that You would mold me more and more into the person You made me to be. Let me be less of what the world expects and, more like You every day. Let Your will be done in my life. Equip me Jesus for every battle through the victory that is in Your hand. Remind me that because You have already defeated sin and death, I can stand in that victory when I face trials of every kind. Because of Your selfless act on Golgotha I can come boldly before the mercy seat as a child of the most high God. What can man do to me?! Jesus, I ask that You train me up for the battle to come. In return Lord, let me train up others to be victorious through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sin and death have no hold on those that You call free. All glory and honor and worship to You God. In Jesus name, AMEN.

A Prayer of Rejoicing

Father God,
all the earth rejoices at the sound of Your voice. The trees delight in You and stretch high into the sky to be near You. The birds of the air soar high above the earth in order to sing You a new song every day of their lives. The wild animals trust that You will provide for them. Let humans be the same! I pray that You would change my nature every day that You allow me to wake. That I would take a note from the birds and sing to You from my soul. I depend on You Jesus to provide what my spirit needs. I wait to hear from You Oh God, that I might please You by being obedient. You, Yaweh are worthy of so much more than I know how to give. Yet, You love me as if I had given You the moon and stars. Create in me a new heart today Lord. Wash me from the stain of my sin with the blood of Jesus. Take me to the people You have a word for so that I may offer comfort and encouragement. Let Your living water flow through my life like a tidal wave. Forgive me of any sin knowingly committed or unknown. I will rejoice in today for You have created it! In Jesus name, AMEN.

A prayer for purpose

A prayer for purpose.

Father God, Your word says that You have a plan for each of us. That this plan is not for calamity but, instead for a future and a hope. I thank You Abba that my future is in Your hands and for that reason I am blessed indeed. I do not have to fear failure because, I only need to be obedient and listen to Your instructions and my future is full of good things. Father, I lift those in prayer who suffer from depression, anxiety, those who don’t know their true identity, and those who do not learn from their wandering. When we wander it is always away from You so this is the reason people lose track of their purpose. I thank You Lord that because I choose to sit at Your feet, I will always know who I am. My purpose is to worship You. To know You through Your Word and to tell others of Your goodness. I am a spiritual warrior with Jesus as my General. I know that my prayers are collected in heaven and when my bowls are full I can count on You releasing Your power and grace into the prayers I have prayed. Father God, I pray that those who are lost will be found at an increased rate in these days. I pray for a stirring of the Spirit for revival. In Jesus holy name. AMEN

Father God everything under the sun is possible with You. Nothing is out of Your reach. I pray Lord that people would realize the possibilities if they would only turn from sin and return to You. Jesus, You made it possible for us to accomplish far greater things than You if we would only believe and receive. Help us Jesus to drop those things that we are carrying in this life so that we can receive this undeserved gift of salvation. The gift that is from God by grace. Let us do that which You lead us to do BECAUSE we have been saved. Not to earn salvation but to show its fruits. Let us joyfully give of our time, money, and talents because we were given the gift of salvation. Father I pray that there be a great awakening for Your glory. Let us see wonders Jesus, let us speak prophecy, and work in our spiritual gifts to further the kingdom of heaven here on earth. Let prayer be the language we chose for all situations. Thank you Jesus for being faithful. Thank you Father for Your extravagant love. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.

Father God, Your promises create hope in those who wait for You. I believe that You will faithfully fulfill all the promises that we read in the Word. You have rescued Your people time and time again when we strayed to worship other gods, like money, lust, greed, power, and self adoration. Forgive us Lord. I worship You God, the Creator and wait on You to move on my behalf. Remind us Lord that You are seeking our repentant hearts in this very moment. I trust Father that when we turn from evil ways, thoughts, deeds, and habits that You will be there waiting with open arms. You have good things in store for those who wait on You. I pray Father that in the times of waiting I would get to know more and more of You. In those quiet times let me rest in Your arms. When it is time to move Jesus, lead the way. When the waiting is over God I pray that we, Your bride are ready and willing to do all that You set out for us to accomplish. Let us serve our King of Kings in love and truth so that Your glory shines brighter than ever before. Teach us and train us Lord God for the next thing so that we are willing and able through Jesus Christ to accomplish greater things. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.

January 18th prayer

January 18th prayer…

Father God, I thank You that I was born in the USA. I have a great love for my country. You sent those who were fighting for religious freedom and against high taxes to establish a country You could be proud of. Help us Lord to turn back to You! Let this nation all repent and ask for forgiveness. America has become defiled in every way Lord. Send a rushing wind to cleanse the lawlessness and corruption from our government. Let our leaders bow the knee only to You Almighty God. Strip the big tech companies of the power they hold over our representatives, congressman, clergy, judges, and Presidential offices. Bring the media mountain down to dust for misleading and lying to the American people and the world. Send a host of angels to protect those who still look to You Lord for wisdom and guidance. Let new people who love You be elected into offices that are for the people and not for themselves. Help is make America great again Jesus. Shine Your glory on the corrupt and evil dealings of this establishment and bring them all to justice. I pray Jesus that Holy Spirit wash over law makers and lead them in all wisdom. We desire a better country while we are still occupying this land. For we know and hope for our future place that is in heaven. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.

If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city.

A prayer for Guidance

Father God help me to lean on You and not my own understanding. When I don’t know which way to go or what decision to make, give me a word. Speak Your wisdom through those You have placed in my sphere of influence and give me the discernment to know it is from You Father. I believe in Your promises for me, that You have already gone before me to clear my path. I understand that life won’t always be easy. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and so shall we. When those times and lessons come show me the way I should go. Guide me Lord God in Your ways. Let there be no confusion in my heart or mind. Make Your way clear to me. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.

For this God is our God forever
And ever;
He will be our guide even to death.
Psalm 48:14 MEV
