Oh Lord, I pray that more people will have an interest in doing much more than believing in You but also obey You. From Your Words, I know that keeping Your commandments is what will make us great in Your kingdom. However, I also have learned that those that keep some and disregard others are least. This does make me wonder about all the so-called Christians in this world. Do they truly love You, Lord, with all their hearts and their neighbors also? Are Your teachings in their hearts and do they teach them to their children? Is sharing their faith a part of who they for You, God? I know that I am not offended to witness my faith to the world but this confidence has come from You and not myself. I have put my faith in You and You have done the rest. You have built me up and have helped me overcome the things of this world. Even Your commands have become a delight to follow. I now love every commandment and love to teach them. I do not do so to look better than anyone else, Lord, but to simply do Your will. To obey my Father, and my God, is what I most desire. My hope is in You, Jesus. I love You. Amen.

Lord, I pray that we will all be more mindful to Your commands and read the Bible more often, that You may teach us and lead us in Your ways. So many people are walking blind because they have chosen not to seek You. This saddens me to the very core for I know that these people are living in darkness and will not be ready come judgement day. There will be a reckoning for their souls, because of their evil deeds and what they sought after in the world, outside Your will. I also know that many so-called Christians fall into this category. For many people are Sunday Christians and their lives are not truly for You. This breaks my heart and helps me understand the need for evangelism. As there are few that are saved, I ask, Lord, that You lead me to those people that are waiting. Lead me to the people that just need a friendly wake up call. Help me remind that Your Words are for our day and that You are there and want to help us. I pray that people will turn their hearts to You and seek You for wisdom and knowledge through the Bible and prayer. I know that their eyes will be opened to the truth, if they are open and humble. Thank You for leading me. I love Your words. They have changed my life and I pray that many other people will find the same joy that I have discovered. I love You Lord. Amen.

Oh Lord, You are so good to me and to all people. For Your humble birth has changed everything. We were lost but You have come to save us all from our sins. We did not have a way home, but You prepared it for us. We needed someone to step in and save us and You did so with no hesitation. You surely are our Savior and King. I am touched by everything You have done for me. Your birth has given me high hopes on life. Your death on the cross, has given me mercy that I don't deserve. Your resurrection has given me new life. I am made new because of Your great love for me. Your sacrifice for mankind is deserving of all our praise. I pray that everyone will think of what You've done and honor You. May they give their ear to Your Holy Words in the Bible and pray more earnestly. Where else can we go for wisdom and knowledge. You are the bread of life and we ought to come to You for the nourishment and guidance that we need. Without You there is only darkness, therefore, come and shine brightly before us. Have Your way within us that all may see. Give us courage to share Your gospel with everyone. Fill us with boldness and a desire to be used in Your kingdom. I am honored and blessed to go out into Your harvest and share Your great love with the world. You are the reason why I live and for this, I will do all things for You, Jesus. I am Yours. My hope is in You. I love You. Amen.

Lord God, I pray that people will remember You always. May this time of year not just be their excuse to go to church and read the story of your birth but may every person that says they believe also live out their faith throughout the year. It isn't enough for them to showcase their faith at times and live for the world other times. I know that when I was living like this, I was never happy. There was addiction in my life and I could not deflect the temptations of the Devil. I felt very shameful and wretched. Especially when I thought of how You must have thought of me, I felt so down and depressed. If I just knew that You were reaching for me, all the day long, things would have been better. However, I chose to live this way for many years on my own and times were very rough. My decisions left my wife and everyone hanging in the back drops. My marriage almost crumbled before me, until You, God, came to my rescue. In my weakest moments I came to You and You brought me peace. You took me in and brought me the greatest comfort of all. I had no way to change my life on my own but You were able to break those chains and all the bondage is gone. I am free because of Your great love for me. Thank You for Your mercy and grace. I am so grateful for Your forgiveness. My hope is in You. I live my life for You, Jesus. Have Your way with me. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I am so amazed at what I have learned from Your Words. The Bible has truly transformed my life. It is a lamp unto my feet and has the map for my life. I know that through its words that You are our Creator. Yes, Jesus, I know that all things were created by You. You are our mighty God, Creator and Father. All power and glory is in Your Name. I am so grateful to know You and to have You in my life. I receive You, God, with all my heart and soul. There is light that my life needs and that light only resides in You. I can find things that fulfill the lusts of the flesh but I always come out of it empty. Shame fills my life and I am broken inside. It is when I pray and come to You in repentance that Your light comes back into my life and all the darkness is scattered. I know that my life is made full with You in it. I am reborn through Your almighty power. This is the life I need and therefore, I trust in You always. My flesh is weak while on my own but with You in it, I am strong. Your righteousness consumes me and I am built up to fight against every sin and temptation. You are my rock and my shield. Therefore, I will stand tall in Christ the Lord. I love You God. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/23/2018)
Lord, I come to You in humility, this day. Just as You came into this world and was born in the lowest of circumstances, in a barn, I come to You, knowing that I am nothing without You. Nothing this world offers can substantiate the love that You give me. Only Your love can breathe life into my soul. I am sick of the tricks that this world plays on me and want Your peace to ever fill my life. I know that what the world offers does not last and all its happiness and joy fades away fast. Most of it has left me with heartache and shame. I do not wish to fall into a state of depression because of these things and need Your peace to come over me, that I might stand up strong. You give me strength that I don't have otherwise. Each time I seek You for wisdom and knowledge, You answer my prayers and I have direction. Because You are in my life, I have a purpose. I am important because Your blood has covered me and I am redeemed. Because of Your mercy, all that shame has been turned into peace and love. Your grace has assured me that I am going places in this life and the next. And Lord, I do wish to always be with You. Even when I pass on from this life I wish to embrace You Lord and thank You in person for all You have done for me. I praise You and rejoice in Your holy Name. I love You so much. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/21/2018)
Lord God, I am amazed at what the Holy Spirit can have us say and do. Even without the foreknowledge of things, You make it known unto us, if we are seeking Your hand. You fill our mouths with words to speak. Just as the Holy Spirit was poured into Elizabeth and Mary, at Your birth, I am grateful that You have poured into my life. When they were filled, they knew of Your coming and Your mission. And what amazes me is that they did not exalt themselves but You. It was always You that they lifted up. I know that when I lift myself up in pride, it is not Your hand. This helps me take a step back and look to You again in faith. I love Your presence Lord and want more of You. So come into my life with full force and fill me up, this day. There is nothing life You, God. You are holy and righteous. You are the chosen Messiah and King of the Jews. Your kingdom is not of this world and I am grateful to be a part of it. You are my King and my Savior. Only Your blood could cover my sins. For great was my wickedness but Your mercy has washed me clean. Only You, God, could do such a healing like this. Your miracles have shaped me into the person I am today. I am so happy and it is because of You. I owe all to You, Lord. I praise You and lift you up high. You are worthy and I honor You above all things. I love You Lord. Amen.

I am Yours, Lord. Have Your way inside of me. There is no other place I’d rather be, than to be in Your presence. You bring safety and security to my life. I am no longer walking with shame but courage that You bring to my life. I am ever able to do what is right, for You are my guide. It is when I do not do my part is when I make bad decisions that I regret. You are my safety net, but without You, I am left swimming upstream and have no way out. Lead me from temptation that I may be strong to resist. Build me up in Your armor that my faith will be grow stronger each day. You are my rock and my fortress, nothing can take me down with You in my life. All the darkness is scattered with Your light. The blindness has been taken from my eyes, that I may see the darkness of this world and no longer be a partaker of its wickedness. You have led me on a path of righteousness and I do not wish to quench the Spirit that is in me. So keep me sober and always looking to You in faith. And to those that are coming around to You now, may they be fully changed and brought into Your fold today. Help them find other Christians that will help them throughout their lives. But in all things, may they look to You for knowledge and guidance. Your words in the Bible are a lamp unto my feet and I know that anyone that truly reads Your words will find wisdom and know the way. And may they pray always and never allow the Spirit to leave them. It is priceless and something I never wish to lose. I love You Lord. You are the way and I will seek You all the days of my life. Amen.

Lord God, I am so grateful to have You in my life. I know that for many years that I chose to live apart from You and am sorry. I regret those days and am so grateful for Your mercy. Thank You for taking a wretched person, such as I, back into Your fold. I am amazed at Your great love and compassion for my life. I do not deserve the things You've done for me and still do for me. Surely, You could have given up on me a long time ago but instead You were patient and waited till the right time to move into my life. I may have wasted many years to serve You but the time I have with You now, I cherish. Thank You for coming into my life and delivering unto me the Spirit of God. You have filled me with a wild fire and now I want everyone to hear my story amd come to know You, Jesus. I pray that others do know that there is still hope for them. May they come to know that You are reaching out for them as You've reached for me, all these years. Just like I was, many people are stubborn but I still have hope in them. I know that their will come a time when many people will reach out to You, Lord. I just pray that they don't lose that hope but continue in the faith. Our faith In You saves us. May I never lose that hope and trust in You, God. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that You will begin to work in the lives of every person that says that they are Christian. May that actually mean something to them, that they may desire to live out their faith. Instill in them new desires, as their hearts are turned to You. May their addictions and old habits be broken, that You may teach them of Your ways. May they understand how dark this world is and how important it is to stay far away from certain things. We all need Your guidance and direction and welcome the Spirit. Without Your presence in our lives there would be so much darkness therein. I pray that You may move within us and show us what is right and what is wrong. May the things we like, be what You like. Break us free from any bad influences and help us walk with people of the same faith. May we be open to the things that You hate, that as You are offended by such things, that we will be too. I know that Your ways are righteous and therefore, I am ready to remove myself from every evil way. Have Your way in my life Lord. You are my God and I believe in You. I love You. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/16/2018)
Lord, thank You for giving Your life for us. What You've done for mankind is the greatest act of kindness that anyone has ever made. I cherish every moment, just thinking of what you've done. What You've done has opened the doors for salvation, and for that I give You praise. My heart is Yours, Jesus. I come willing to Your feet, that You may continue to wash me of my sins each day. You are my King and I worship You. You give me the desires to love one another and to give what I have to those less fortunate. I may not be rich but I still find ways to have money after giving to those in need. Yes, Lord, You make this all possible and make a way so that people are blessed. I am so grateful to be given opportunities to serve You and to bring peace to others. Each time I go out of my comfort zone and rely on You fully to lead the way, things go so well. Even when I open my mouth, it is filled. I don't have to rely on my own self, for You are there to help me. I pray that You will continue to use me to bless other people. Help me to always have a giving heart. And please instill this desire in the hearts of many. I pray that Your love will go forth and touch many souls. I trust in You Lord. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, my God, it is wonderful to think of You, during this time of year. It is amazing to think of how You came into this world as promised by the prophets of old. Even your lineage is of David and Abraham, whom loved you from the beginning. Surely, to be of Your descent is glorious indeed. What a gift it was for the people that were a part of where it all started. I am grateful that Abraham was true to You and never gave up on your promises to Him. I am also so grateful for David. That He came back to You, Lord. His praises fill me up with joy. I know that it was all for Your glory, for You deserve the highest praise. Even Solomon was in your line and how knowledge he was. His words were and still are inspirational to us all. Thank You for speaking through these men. I have learned so much from their words and I know it is because You were a part of it. Nothing is good unless You have a hand in it, God. I pray that we will ever remember You, during this Christmas season. That we will understand why we celebrate Christmas and it is because of You, Jesus. You came into the world to save us all from our sins. I am so blessed. Thank You for Your mercy. I am saved by Your grace. Your forgiveness has changed my life. I love You and praise You, Lord. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that people will think about You even more so during this Christmas season. It is surely a wonderful time for families to get together and enjoy each other's company. It is also fun for many people to turn on the TV and watch the Christmas Classics. People also focus their attention on Santa Clause and that brings them joy. Sure, the family part may be good and all, but all these other things are distractions for Your true worship. During this time of year, it not about focusing our time on things that don't exist and don't matter. It is a time to celebrate Your birth and tell others of what You've done. As believers, we come and worship You Lord. We don't want anything at all to distract us from worshiping You. You are our King and Lord of all. Other things can try to replace the moment and the most special time of the year but it will never replace Your love and peace. You are my strength and my hope. My promises are in Your, my Savior. I pray that all Christians will turn to You and give You the worship that You deserve. I praise You Lord. I rejoice in Your birth. Thank You for coming down and saving us from our sins. I am eternally grateful. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that people do repent before it is too late. I pray that they will understand the need to turn from their wicked ways, in order to have Your presence in their lives. May people no longer be caught up in their current lifestyle, that they feel no need to change. This is getting way to many people into trouble these days. It is causing them to seek the ways of the world instead of Your calling for their lives. What is sad, God, is that when I go on the streets, these people laugh at me and think I am nuts, when I am only out their witnessing the truths of the gospel to them. They think they have it made and what I am doing for God's kingdom is not necessary. It is so sad to think that they feel that hell will be where the best people will be at and they'll be having a good ol'time there. Wow, are they mistaken, Lord. Your Holy Spirit has spoken to me and these people will be punished for their sins in the lake of fire. I pray that the wicked people in this world will humble themselves and find mercy in You Lord. I know that there is still hope. Help me find such people, that they may be rescued and delivered into Your hands, dear God. I love to serve You and to see people find faith in You. I love You. Amen.

Dear God, I come to You now in praise and honor. You are my King and I worship You. O come Emmanuel. You are welcome Jesus, my Lord and my God, in my life. I honor You, my King. Your mission was fulfilled and we are saved because of Your sacrifice on the cross. You have saved us from our sins, if we but believe in You, Jesus. I pray that as You have covered my sins through Your blood, that others will also come unto You and fill of Your mercy today. May their sins be covered and washed clean, as You cleanse me daily. My life is Your, dear God. I know that You came for the redemption of mankind and for that I praise You and adore You, my God. I am so grateful to know that what You have done was for me. That I am important in Your eyes. That I have a purpose. You have opened my eyes to greater things. Your Spirit touches my heart daily. I am moved to walk in Your light. Thank You for Your guidance and direction. I can do nothing but through You, dear God, who strengthens me. I am blessed to have You ever in my life. I give You glory. I rejoice in the Name of Jesus. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, what a wonderful God You are. Oh, how merciful You are. Your compassion never fails. Thank You for waiting on me and never giving up hope. Though, I let You down so many times and forgoed my chances at forgiveness, You never gave up on me. I was far from You for many years but You were still waiting on me. It was in all my bitterness and shame that everything came crumbling down on me. I was broken and I needed saving. I didn't think it was possible but needed to tell You sorry. At that moment, I thought it would be over and You would leave me forever, but I was wrong. That was when You came to me and put Your arms around me. Your presence filled me with so much peace and joy. I began to feel things that I never felt before. There was hope for a new life. How could this be, I'd ask? Then, You made it crystal clear to me. I was worth saving, as with all people on this earth. We are all loved but have lost our way. Thank You for looking past my sins and washing my sins clean. Your forgiveness and mercy is like nothing I have ever seen before. I am amazed by Your grace. Thank You Lord. I love You. Amen.
