Oh Lord, I pray that more people will be saved, before their own life ends in death. May more people come to know You, Jesus, for salvation. I know that so many people have a good chance at going to heaven, if they would just listen to Your gospel message and receive You. The problem is that people are not willing to give up what is sinful, in order to follow You. So many things are holding people back, Lord, that their priorities are all twisted. Surely, there is life eternal and a place with no more tears or sorrow waiting for those that would believe in You, but their evil deeds are keeping them from You. Oh, how I wish that people could see themselves in the mirror and know how sinful they have really become. Maybe then, would they desire a Savior in their life and seek after You, God, in prayer. In their confessions would they be able to see how good You really are and what they have been missing out on. There is so much joy in this life that people have never discovered and this is because they continue to get help from people and not a higher power for their addictions. They are only giving themselves over to the devil, that he may attack them more and more. What people need is Your shield to protect them and then would they find a way out of sin and temptation. No person is free from sin, until they deny themselves and follow You, Jesus. Only by doing as You have taught us can we find a way out of sin and find true happiness that never ends. We are more than capable to walk in Your holiness and be saved, but people need to be seeking You and giving You a chance to lead them. I trust in You, God. You are my rock, of which I stand on. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray for every person that desires to be saved, but isn't truly saved yet. Speaking of these so-called Christians, many of them are living outside of Your grace and don't even realize it. Because their pastors are not teaching upon sin and hell, they have become content with their wicked lifestyle, although it is abominable in Your sight. Surely, people are being misinformed on what sin is and how it will keep them from Your presence. Since their pastors are not teaching them from every part of Your Word, they are getting the truth mixed up in the world. For this reason, they have departed from You, not knowing this. Lord, this is disheartening that pastors are not teaching people about homosexuality, pornography and abortion. Maybe if they did, then people would know that being gay is a sin and how marriage is for husband and wife and that's it. They would also know that abortion is murder and that killing unborn children is very grievous in Your sight. And people would know that porn is lusting in their hearts for another person, which is adultery. Do they not know that You are holy and our sinful ways will keep us apart from You? So Lord, I pray that You will prick these pastors hearts to repent and desire to teach from and believe in all Your Words in the Bible. I also pray for every person that desires to be saved, but is off course in the world. Give them a desire to read the Bible daily and to pray often. This way, will Your Words convict them of their sins, that they may repent. Then, will they come fully over to You in their confessions. And once Your presence comes upon them, will they see themselves as the sinner and desire to be cleansed. This I know to be true, for Your blood can cover all sin, as it has mine, if people would believe in and trust in You. Truly, when we learn to follow You, that is when we are saved. Thank You for teaching me and showing me the way. I love You more than anything. Your grace is enough for my life. I will follow You unto the ends of the earth. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray for those in marriages that are having a hard time. Surely, it is hard to bear the times we have with our spouse when love is absent. We can hardly go one when love is being withheld from the person we thought loved us. And Lord, You know who is struggling with this type of turmoil right now and can help them. May you lift up those that people that are sorrowful and even depressed because of their marriage situation. We cannot carry on without Your love in our lives and it is very hard when love is missing in our marriage. As believers, it is Your love that carry's us onward and gives us hope. For that reason, we plead for Your continued presence in our lives. We need the Holy Spirit to spark the fire back in our marriage, and that can only come from You. We can try to find joy in other places, but it will never last, unless You are the one that has given it. Even our spouse can find a way to love, when they have not shown it for a few months or years. You are the one that can spark the reason for them to forgive and no longer hold grudges. Every wall can come crumbling down when we simply give our hearts over to You. And Lord, I pray for salvation in the lives of marriages of a unbelieving spouse. Life is hard when Your will is not being realized in a marriage, because of other thoughts and desires of our spouse. But, I know that You can show Yourself to them, that they may see You, as we have, and be saved. No marriage needs to end in a divorce when You have the power to change the atmosphere. It Is Your presence that ushers in the love that is lost. We are restored in a new life with You when we believe. There is also a brand new love relationship with our spouse when we both believe. Your ways are higher and I hope and pray that my wife and children will be saved one day. You are my God and I trust in You. May Your love be fully restored in this marriage and others. I love You Lord. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that Your love will enter my family, my marriage, and my relationship with my children. I know that my life for You is strong, and the same goes for Your love for me, but somehow the love in my marriage is not as alive as it should be. The same can be said for my family and children. And I know that I have a part of this happening and I am sorry. May Your love strengthen me, through these hard times and lift me up. I wish for salvation in the lives of my immediate family, wife and my kids. May they one day know You, Lord, and follow in Your footsteps also. I know that I am not perfect, but only desire to do Your will. If a part of me is lacking and things aren't going well in my relationships because of what I am doing, make it be known to me. Help me to know what is wrong, that things might get better over time. I just wish that my family would be with me, one day in heaven, after we all pass on in death. For this reason, do I try to point those I love to You, Jesus, ever day of my life. If that is changing what they are watching, and pointing them to a show that is uplifting and speaks of You, that is my desire. So much that is on TV now-a-days is only a trap and a lure to lead us away from Your love. For this reason, I'd rather shut it off all together and read Your Words in the Bible as a family. What You have said in scripture has meaning to my life and gives me hope, while the things on TV are only distractions. I love to spend time with You in Your Words and in prayer and I wish that one day my family would want to join me in worship to You also God. Your love is what keeps me going and I pray that this love will soon take over my family, spouse and children's lives also. I love You Lord. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray for those people that are suffering right now with depression and suicidal thoughts. I know that many people that I know and love are in despair right now and need You to come inside of their lives, in order to lift them up. Please come to them now and give them the comfort they need to go on in life. Give them the hope that they really need, in order to get back on the right track again. Send people in the faith to their doorsteps and wherever they may be, that their needs may be met and prayers may be offered on their behalf. And put a sense of urgency in my heart and others hearts to find those that are suffering, that we may be a light to them, when only darkness is found. There is hope that can still be found and this can only happen when we in the faith are willing to respond to Your will. So many more people would be getting the assistance they need, if people would be willing to get out of their comfort zones and step out where needs are the highest. Lord, I am so grateful that You have sent people to me, when I was down and depressed. Not too long ago, when I lost my job, I was really hurting inside and You knew my pain and heard my prayers. Not only did you send me a sense of relief to what was going on then, but You sent friends of the faith to my house, that I would be prayed over also. Thank you so much for sending them and giving them the courage to respond to my needs. I needed good friends to help me in those times and You knew that from start. You put them there in my life and now I am so much happier. Things have gotten better over the last many months now with this new job and I give You all the glory. Thank You for taking my thoughts of sadness and giving me gladness in return. I love You Lord. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray for every lost person in this world. To those people that are living a burdensome life, they are so needful of Your love, God, and others also. If they just knew how merciful You really are, then all their confessions would be given to You in prayer. They would not hold back at all, but also the Bible also. Your teachings are what uplift us and help us carry on. Being in prayer and in Your Word daily helps our thoughts not get out of hand, for You are able to help us make the best decisions. So, without You leading us, there is no hope to be found that lasts. We can find it for a time, but that is only temporary. Even our lusts come at a price of falling deeper into sin and then having guilt and shame pile up in our lives. These are the types of things, Lord, that causes people to be depressed. Because they are not able to get over their addictions, they just want to give up. For these people, I pray for the welfare of their souls. May they find You Lord in their brokenness and trust in those people that truly love You and only want to share the love of Your gospel with them. And Lord, I know how hard it is to be happy when people are continuing to bully us and make us feel terrible inside with their hurtful words. Truly, Satan has a strong hold upon the wicked and their attacks are disheartening us in our weakest moments. It truly takes a lot of moments in prayer and just seeking You to get over this. I just pray that those that have also been affected by these people, that they don't give up on themselves. That they instead come to You with their burdens, that they may be light. Help people understand that killing themselves is never the answer. The real solution is coming to You, Lord, for new life. Only You can do this. I trust in You, Jesus. I love You. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (08/31/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray that we will all live this life fully for You. Surely, there are many obstacles in our paths, but with You at our side, we are able to be more than conquers. No temptation is able to cut through the armor that You place in our lives. Much like the building of your holy sanctuary, you are able to give us specific instructions and how to fulfil them. It is Your holy presence that gives us hope and helps us do things that we would not be able to do otherwise. I give You thanks for Your guidance and direction in my life. I would be helpless to do anything good, if Your light was not shining inside of me. I say this because my works are of no importance and good for others if You are not doing the work inside of me. What I need is more instructions from You, God, that I might live out a life of faith and love on people as You love on me. I love Your commands God, and the more I am taught, the better I am able to live my life. Therefore, I plead for the Holy Spirit in my life. I need that fire to give me the strength to carry on faithful to Your promises. Your ways are better for my life and everyone else. So I pray that all people will one day see this. May they be able to understand the joy I found in You and choose to follow You. I know how happy I have become, because of Your mercy and grace, and I wish everyone else could experience the same joy that I know and love for themselves. You are the supplier of our happiness and I wish to make that known to every person on earth. You are my guide and I will follow You. Lead me to the lost, that they may discover You for themselves and be saved. I love You God. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (08/30/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray that our faith in You will mean more than what we are making it now. So many people say they believe, but instead, they walk apart from You. There is no true faith in You, but faith in other things give them joy. Therefore, help them remember the day that they called upon Your name and were saved. May they never forget the joy they felt when they were walking in Your light. That is when their salvation began. Help them to not lose it, but endure in that faith. I know for a fact that my faith could be greater. I love You, but I could love You more through my actions, especially how I treat others. Only by seeking You daily can this type of love and kindness flow through me and into other people's lives. You have helped me realize how much I miss out on miss out when I continue doing my own things. It is when I am outside of Your, that I fall victim to sin and shame. I am so sorrowful when this happens and no matter how much I wish it never happened, I know that I cannot change the past. All I can do is reach back to You in faith and confess my sins. It is then my prayer that You would have mercy upon my soul and forgive me. Lord, I don't wish to do what is evil in Your sight, but always be guided by Your hand, that I might resist temptation. It is my prayer that I am kept strong and faithful, even until the end. You are my Lord and my Savior and I only wish to follow You. So I pray that You will lead me in Your light and abolish every form of darkness from my life. Look through my heart and cast out every wicked thing, that I might be made pure in Your sight. I say these things Lord, in Your holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (08/29/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray that we will all get our lives in order, before our time expires. Truly, our lives go by way to fast and then it is over in an instant. It has been so hard, God, to see those I've loved pass on. Some of them have been saved by Your grace, but many others have not. This saddens my soul to think that people I've known and loved could be suffering in hell right now. For this reason do I not only live my life for You, but also warn my neighbor and especially those I love to find You, Jesus, for salvation. Your path is straight and narrow and leads to heaven. Every person needs to be on it and become born again in the Spirit, or else there is nothing left for them but pain and sorrow in hell. Your ways are secure and leads us from death and into heaven, where there is eternal joy. These other paths don't interest me anymore. I don't need temporary pleasure that is attached with guilt and shame. Your ways are higher and always lead me to joy without any compromises. And Lord, I give You the thanks for leading me. I would be lost forever, if You had not come into my life and rescued me. I needed a Savior and You responded to my prayers. Thank You for hearing me and having mercy upon me. My confessions were many, but Your compassion has no end. For this reason, I do not fear death, but only others that die outside the faith. My life is secure in Your blood, but others do not have this same security. Therefore, I wish that people would be awakened to follow You before it is too late. I do not wish to go to anymore funerals where I am weeping because of their bad choices. Instead, I'd rather weep for joy, because they are with You, Lord, in heaven. I love You God. My trust is in You. With all my heart do I praise You and worship You. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (08/28/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray that people will desire to be used by You and seek You out with their whole hearts. Help them to have a greater attention span to Your words of wisdom. No matter the length of the message, may the Spirit lead them to finish reading Your words, that they may grow in the faith. I see to many people on social media passing by the real meat of your messages for something simple to read, and this is very sad. These same people are missing out, Lord, on what You have put in our hearts to share with people. For every Christian that has real faith in You, it is impossible to summarize a real God given message to somebody in a few sentences. It is because the Spirit is leading us to write, as long as it takes to get the premise out there, we will write more. I don't want anything to be missing, especially if You are telling me to go onward in my writing. I also wish that You would supply those people that will read the devotions that are written. It is one thing to write what You have put in my heart, but another to see someone read the message and be blessed by it. This is truly hard to come by in our day, Lord. To many people have narrowed their focus on what is short and sweet, instead of what is longer and manifested in You. Because their hearts are set on being gratified by what they see instantly, they miss out on the best stuff that You have to offer them. This includes all of Your words in the Bible. A few verses here and there is nothing like doing a real study on different chapters at hand. It is this reason that I love to write on the Bible. Your words are a lamp unto my feet and I pray that it will also become this way to others in the faith also. Your ways are too good to be kept to myself. I love You Lord. You are the light that guides me. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (08/27/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray that we will always be mindful of Your beautiful creation that is all around us. Help us to see the beauty in things and see how only You could create them. Just looking at the mountains, streams, trees, flowers, animals, fishes, insects, and especially humans, do I see You, God, in all these things. Nothing has more style and artistry then Your mighty hands. You made the best things for us to live on this earth and I am so grateful. All throughout time You have made an impression upon people that have lived. Thank You Lord for everything You have to offer us. We are so blessed when we can look past ourselves and just glance at our surroundings. I cannot take enough pictures of all the different colors in the mountains, lakes, streams, trees, leaves, shrubs and flowers. I am mesmerized by how beautifully made everything is every spring, summer, fall, and winter. These seasons surely describe how perfectly laid out everything is upon this earth. Your creations comes to life and then goes dormant at different times of the year. This would have taken a lot of thought in my mind, but for You is was made easy. You created all these things for our joy. Thank You Lord. I am sure that the sanctuary that You had Moses create was also as amazing. Saying that, God, I know that You can also do amazing things in our lives also. If we just listen to Your instructions, then we will be able to do things that are extraordinary in nature. This is because You are able to orchestrate Your will in our lives. For this, I am so grateful. I trust in You always. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (08/26/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray that people will remember You every day of their lives. May they no longer worship You one day a week, but each day live for You. I've seen enough people go to church, but during the week be someone entirely different. This is when I know that their time for You is dwindling. They may worship You and read Your Words in church, but outside of those walls, they are different. Because the Holy Spirit is not a part of their lives, they do what they will, instead of follow You. Oh, how I wish that people would see the danger they are in, while living this way in sin. They are trampling under their feet Your commands, while giving into the lusts of their flesh. This is only pulling them further away from You. Their desires for evil deeds is what is killing a real relationship with You in prayer. I know from experience how bad this really is and only wish the best for these people, by calling them to repentance. Lord, wake them up to their sins, that they may confess them openly to You. Humble them, that they may realize how far gone they really are without You, their Savior. Surely, our souls are at stake ,if we are not seeking You daily in prayer and reading the Bible. We have no compass to direct our paths when You are not leading us. And because sin has taken over our lives, the Spirit cannot dwell with us. For this reason Lord, convict us when we are wrong. I also pray that people will listen to You, as I have. There is so much joy and peace that comes from doing as You command. It is so good to go into church after having sought You throughout the week. Our time in fellowship with others, worshipping, and learning is that much better also. This is I pray that more people will know this also and live as You would lead them. I love You Lord. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (08/25/2019)
Oh Lord, how blessed I am to know that You are there for us. In the good times and bad, You are right by our side when we have faith. I am grateful that You answer us in prayer. How often do I know that Your presence is near, but it is so amazing to also know that You are listening to me and answering my prayers. There is nothing more powerful than Your mighty hand upon our lives. We can go through many different avenues seeking for help, but all these things are temporary, until we find eternal fulfillment in You. We can find temporary cures for different things in life, but all this is chance and none of it has a lasting effect on us like You do. Only Your healing hand can take every bit of sickness from our life. You are the one that make our life whole again. It does take great faith to be cured, but I know that this is necessary to have Your blessings in our lives. We cannot just be someone that says they believe in You, but do nothing about our faith. This type of faith is dead and needs to be awakened by You, oh God. So many people are slumbering and don’t even realize it. So I pray that You will awaken these people, in Your holy Name, Jesus. May they be lifted up in faith and desire to be prayed over. I also pray that people will confess their sins and be cleansed through Your blood, Jesus. Then, can they be born again in the Spirit and be led to pray for others also in need. You are our deliver and is simply waiting for people to showcase their faith and invoke Your Name in prayer. Then, can people of all ages be healed and miracles be witnessed. I trust in You, Lord. All the praise and glory to Your holy Name. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that people will desire to live out their faith every day of their lives. May we always have the desire to follow You, no matter what day of the week it is. And when we spend time with others, especially in the faith, may our desires be to read the Bible, pray and sing songs of praise with them. Because You have changed our lives, may we also desire to help change others through the Holy Spirit and point them to You. Your ways are higher and I pray that we will always remember this when we plan out of our day. And since others' lives matter as much as ours do, help us to be willing to start these gospel conversations with them. Take every bit of our timidness from our hearts and give us courage to speak what is true and faithful to others. We never know if that time with those that we love may be our last, so I pray that we make the most of that time. Surely, the time that we have to pray for other people's needs will be so beneficial. This time that we have to invoke Your great Name for healing and a resurrection of faith, I know that You will hear us and respond to our needs. Then, will reading Your words in the Bible open up our eyes and ears to following You. Surely, it is wonderful to see people that are willing to listen and also participate in a gospel message. It is also amazing to see them want to sing their heart out for You. You are our God and I pray that we will never forget You. May we also be found seeking You each day of our lives. This way ever moment of lives will count. I love You more than anything, Lord. Nothing else could take Your place. I am so grateful just to have this time with You now and with others. Amen.

Oh Lord, I trust in You and other people that You have called to minister in the church. Just like You are using me in the faith, You have a hand on other believers as well. Therefore, I have faith that You can have any one of them to pray over me when I am in sin, sick or troubled. You are my healer and by calling these brothers and sisters in the faith to pray over me is asking You to do so in my life. You are the one really orchestrating the whole event and I am so grateful to receive prayer for healing. There are miracles happening all the times because of prayer, and this is because of my faith and the faith of others combined. Thank You Lord. I am so grateful to have people that I know I call upon when there is a need. Other resources like prescription drugs, doctors and counselors are fine and they have a role on earth, but they will never come before You again. Only when it is important that I bear my illness for a time, that I will use these other resources. And instead, I will call upon You for assistance. Through Your will, I know that others in the faith will respond to my needs, as they come up. Prayer is truly a remarkable event, God, and I just wish that more people would realize how beneficial it is for our lives. I know that You desire to heal us all, but we have to put forth the effort on our parts to get the right people in our lives, that will pray over us. Your messengers are here for our needs, we just need to trust in them as we trust in You and call upon them. Lord, I trust in Your mighty power and who You desire to work through is not my concern. Your healing power is still for us now. I have experienced this and I know that many others can as well. I love You. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (08/22/2019)
Oh Lord, although we cannot experience what your holy tabernacle was like, I am so grateful to have Your presence in my life now. Through Your words in the Bible and in prayer I am left in awe at Your beauty and grace. Just having You near is like having the heavens opened up to me and seeing You and Your sanctuary for myself. It is so breathtaking just to meditate on You and the things You have taught us through scripture. I am made a better person each day that I seek You with my whole heart. Nothing can take me down, when You are in my life. I am strong, for You are my guide. Temptation has nowhere to strike, for You are my protection. I have a shield and it is raised up with my God as my defense. There is holiness in my life, because You are welcomed in and have made your home in my heart. Thank You God for Your mercy. I would be lost without You. Because I am forgiven and am free from the sins of the past, I am able to worship You with all my heart, mind, body and strength. Nothing is held back, for You are my greatest delight. Since there is holiness in You, may there be more holiness in me also. Make unto me clean hands and a pure heart, that I may always dwell with You in Your presence. You are my God and my King and I love You so much. Nothing could ever take Your place. It'll be a glorious time when I am able to be with You, one day, in heaven. Until then, my life is dedicated for working for You in Your kingdom. So use me as You will. I trust in You, God. Amen.
