Oh Lord, I pray that our hearts will be in the right place with You at all times. That we will not allow there to be any walls built up in our lives but allow You to tear them all down. And if it means that we ought to start showing more kindness towards others, put a spark inside of us, that we may do this. Every person in our lives deserves to hear that they are loved, that they are forgiven, that we are sorry for our actions, and how much we respect them because of all they do. Sure, it is fine to think of al the good things that people have done after a person dies, and this makes sense, but it makes more sense to start acting this way while that person still has breath. So Lord put inside of us a Spirit of forgiveness, kindness, compassion, longsuffering, gentleness, patience, and love. Shine down upon our lives Your light, that every person we encounter will have this same Spirit flow into their lives also. It is my desire that people will be touched by Your mighty hand each time that they have the opportunity to be around me. I don't want it to ever be a hindrance upon people, but always a blessing. Just as You show us such love and respect that we don’t deserve, do I hope and pray that these same qualities will become a part of my everyday life and for all people that call themselves Christian. It is truly an honor to know You, Jesus. This is why I proclaim that I am Christian, for You are inside of me, guiding me by the hand. I am only strong because You have carried me forth in this life. I love You, Lord. Thank You for everything. All the praise and honor to Your Name, Jesus. Amen.

Lord, I love You and only wish to do Your will. If there is anything in my life that offends You now, please strip it from me. I do not wish to grieve the Holy Spirit, but to walk in Your ways, oh Lord. Dress me in Your robes of righteousness, that I may shine Your light in the darkness of this world. Cleanse me this day of any sins that I have committed, that it may be forgiven. I love You more than the things of this world. Nothing the enemy can offer me can take Your place, oh God. I have already experienced the pleasures that the world had to offer me, and only found temporary pleasure in such things, and also a lot of guilt associated with it. The worst thing of all is that these things drew me away from You. My time was wasted in the things I watched on TV, movies, the internet, and video games. And it all was of one word, FILTH. Yes, God, I was filthy because You were not with me. Sure, there may have been a portion of me that wanted to live differently, but I never showed it. I knew of You and even said I believed, but I was only lying to myself. I've learned that if I do not obey Your voice, while not allowing You to change my life, I am only a hypocrite in saying that I am a Christian. Truly, my sins cried out to You and I kept them hidden in my heart. So I want to tell You how sorry I am and thank You for rescuing a wretched person such as I. I did not deserve Your mercy, but You extended it anyway. You heard my confessions and had compassion for my soul. Thank You, Lord. All I want to do now is listen to You and obey Your voice. I love You, God. Amen.

Oh Lord, I believe in You and trust in you for answers. Even in my distress do I come to You for guidance and direction. I may not know what to do in my life when I know that the enemy is closing in, but You have a way to allow me to escape such things. Nothing that the enemy wants to throw at me, will ever stand up against Your will power for my life. I am stronger because You are with me. You give me encouragement when I cannot find it anywhere else. Thank You, Lord. For even when things are hard, You come in and lift me up, that my burdens may be light. There is no such bondage that I can ever be under that You cannot give me a way to escape it. For You are all powerful beyond measure. My hope is restored even under the hardest of circumstances, because You have given me an outlook on the situation that I didn't see before, and are now helping me move forward. So in death do I trust that You know why it happened, and I put it in Your hands. When there is a robbery or theft, I trust that You know what we should do next. Even when jobs end unexpectedly, I trust that You know why this happened and I have hope that You, Lord, will help me find an even more suitable job for me and my family. It can be hard when trials face my family because of an addiction, but I know that you have the power to lead me or another family member out of it. We just need to keep praying and trusting in You, Lord, for answers. We may find ourselves with some hard decisions to make, but even these things are made more simple to do when You are there with us. Thank You, Lord. I love You, God. Amen.

Oh Lord, thank You for making everything work out as it should, for You to come into the world, in order to save us from our sins. I am grateful that David listened to Achish and fled for his life when war was raging upon his city. Because of this, his lineage did continue, and You came into the world from Him. Oh, praise the Lord. All things work out for the good because You are our King and Lord of all. The enemy has no chance to take down the forces of God, for You are stronger. And with Your power in our lives, we can accomplish all things. For surely in our weakness, You make us strong. We can go forward in faith because You have our hands and are ready to fight the battles with us. You know exactly where we ought to go, so I am here to listen and walk where You will lead me. Guide all my steps, that I may walk uprightly in Your sight, and not fall victim to my own pride. In my flesh, I am weak, but You have the power to build me up, where I cannot. And where I have no power over sin, You have given me new desires and a clean heart to serve You. Surely, in myself I am nothing, but in Your will power, I am strong. Thank You for cleansing me and showing me a better way to live my life. I will go where You want me to go. If it means fighting for Your cause, I will do it. And if You would have me run from the enemy, I will flee by Your hand. My life is not my own, but Yours. My body is Your temple, so use me as You will see fit. May I fulfill this life, while walking in Your light and seeing many more souls be saved. I love to witness Your truths, so continue to give me boldness to speak to others. I love You, Lord. You are my God, and I worship You. Amen.

Oh Lord, it is my desire that people will understand Your will for their lives. That they will no longer believe in things that are contrary to Your will but accept only what You've taught us in the Bible. People can mess with what Your Word has said, but this does not mean that You approve of such things. Truly, tampering with the Bible is making a mockery of what You've said through the men of God over the centuries, by way of the Spirit. So I pray that people will come out of every false teaching. May they find Your truth and get on the straight and narrow path that leads to heaven. Then, will they be set free from every form of darkness in their life now, through Your mighty power. There is a prescribed way for us to live by, while in this life, and then go to heaven. This way of life comes through You, Jesus. Yes, Lord, we cannot go through any other person, but through You alone to be saved. Thank You for making this crystal clear for every person that reads the Bible. I also know that only in this life can we get right with You and be saved. There are no second chances, but only judgment that awaits us all. As You have spoken, my heart has been moved to repent and allow You to cleanse me from within. I no longer wish to grieve the Holy Spirit, but allow You to move in my life freely. Thank You for changing my life and for helping me understand that there is more to faith than just saying we believe. For belief in You is also how we seek You daily in prayer and follow You. All I know God is that if I was not obedient to what You've taught in scripture, that I would still be under the bondage of sin. But now You have given me new desires and a clean heart to serve You. And for this reason, I give You the glory and all the praise. I love You, Lord. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/12/2020)
Oh Lord, I pray that people will understand that it is off-limits for us to call upon the dead or consult any person that calls themselves a medium. Surely, this is putting ourselves at risk of having an evil spirit enter our lives. No matter if the dead can be called, You have called us to not dabble in such things. Even in the day we live in, people may say that witchcraft and sorcery are not common anymore, but You know the truth, of Lord. It is sad to see people I know and love call themselves Christians and still use magic cards, while thinking it is OK with You. Surely, this is nothing different than conjuring up spells, which is despicable in Your sight. I often wonder how people are so interested in fortune tellers or magic shows, for these things do not lift You up, but Satan instead. We are not seeking You if our hearts are set on the things of this world. Therefore, I pray that You will lose people that are currently in bondage because of their sins, and seeking after things that are unseemly in Your sight. It is my prayer that people will be drawn to know what You desire for our lives, not what they think is good. Our flesh will deceive us into following dark paths that lead us nowhere but hell. So I pray that people will start to pray often and read the Bible daily. Then will they know what You've said in scripture, and begin to be obedient to You as well. It is one thing to know what You have said, and another to follow and do as You say. For me, it is an honor to read and understand Your teachings better. To live them out brings me joy. I love You, Lord. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/11/2020)
Oh Lord, I pray that people will desire to do what they can in order to better understand the Bible. Nowadays we have many resources at our fingertips that will greatly help us learn and understand what You have taught us in scripture. Therefore, there is no excuse for not reading the Bible, and when we are, to not understand it. So give me and other people in the faith a greater desire to make time for You, while reading the Bible daily. And enlighten our minds as we read. Teach us things that will help us in our daily life. Convict us of any faults that are in our lives now. It is amazing the things I learn, while reading the Bible, that truly change my thoughts on different things. Where I once loved the things of the flesh and being gratified through what the world could offer me. Now, I've learned to despise anything that is fleshly in nature, since it doesn't come from above. I don't wish to have more guilt or shame built up in my life, because of the lusts within me, but be carried away in the Holy Spirit. So fill me up this day and forever with the Holy Spirit. I wish to be guided in Your light, and not only gain understanding but also have the strength to live out what I have been taught. To know You is one thing, but to honor You in my actions is another thing. I love You, Lord. To do Your will brings me the greatest joy of all. I love Your teachings in scripture. Each day I want to be filled up and be led by Your hand. Thank You, Jesus. I praise the King of glory. Amen.

Oh Lord, my heart cries out for all the innocent people that have been killed over the years. Millions of unborn babies are slaughtered each year in abortion, of which my soul cries out for people to stop it. I don't want to hear about another innocent life like this being killed while denying the importance of your beautiful creation and to reproduce. I am also afflicted in knowing that there have been millions of lives killed in not only wars but also by the hands of people that hate Christians. All this conflict and death is very sad, and only praise being to those people that have stood up for their faith even until the end of their lives. Lord, it is my desire that Your commandment, thou shalt not kill, will be rightly understood in people's lives. May this convict people when they are about to murder someone without a cause. And really, Lord, is there ever a reason now to take an innocent life? Absolutely not! No possessions that they have could bring me joy by taking their life over. No life lost like this or in the heat of the moment is ever right. For life is precious in your sight. Lord, may more people seek Your hand more often in prayer and read the Bible daily, that Your words will be in their hearts. Then, will they know how to act under different circumstances, while keeping their cool and not overreacting. It is love that changes the atmosphere. So I pray that You will usher into every person's life Your love, that love, peace, compassion, and kindness will abound in other people's lives that we encounter. I love You, Lord. To do Your will is what brings me joy. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/09/2020)
Oh Lord, I love You and Your ways. It is because You are in my life that I wish to only show kindness and love towards all men, women, and children. Even if I am harmed, it is Your peace and compassion I will give them, for they don't really know what they are doing. If they did, then they would not be acting as cruel as they are. They would not be causing hardships upon me and other Christians, in order to cause us to feel pain. These people may be an enemy to us because of how they pursue us now, but I have hope that they can still become our friend if they would just seek Your hand in their lives. All I wish to do is show love, even though many people don't see it as love. Even Your words, oh Lord, may seem like they are being judged, but surely, I am only drawing them to You, that You may do a work in their lives. Because You have changed my life, even from the inside out, I have new desires to love one another as You love me. I am so grateful just to know You and to experience the warmth of Your love each day, and to showcase that same love towards others is the least I can do. For I love Your ways. Your commandments and laws for mankind are a song to my soul. For to be in line with Your teachings brings me so much joy and happiness. Only in the flesh did I ever experience temporary pleasure, but with pain and guilt along with it. However, since You have heard my cries and rescued me from the bondage of sin, I have been set free. Now I am no longer a slave to sin, but a bondservant to Your kingdom, oh God. Even until death will I trust and follow You. I love You, Lord. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/08/2020)
Oh Lord, I pray for each person who is living an adulterous lifestyle. These people know as well as I do that what they are doing is wrong, but continue in it anyways until there are consequences added to their actions. Surely their conscience is seared because of the wickedness they have committed, even before Your sight, oh God. What a mockery it is to say a person like this can believe in You and say they are saved, while willingly live in their sinful state. Oh, the blasphemy that is coming from their mouths as they commit whoredoms, which are despicable in Your sight. These people are vial and have no room for Your glorious and pure kingdom above. Therefore, come and convict such people in their sins. Draw them near unto You, that they may learn to fear the living God, and no longer walk willfully in their sins. Help them know that their bodies are Your holy temple and should never be tarnished by adultery, sex outside of marriage, or pornography. These sexual sins will only kill a person's soul and cause them to walk the path of destruction which leads to hell, lest they come unto You, Jesus, in all their confessions. So I pray that this will happen and that many more souls will be saved, that are headed now to hell when they die. Surely, their time is not up yet, so set a fire in their souls, that they may desire to know You as the true God and Savior of this world. I believe in You, Lord. I trust in You. Thank You for your forgiveness and mercy for my life. I just pray that others will fill Your hand of mercy and compassion and be saved also. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Lord, I pray for every person that is living a homosexual lifestyle right now. Such people are not right in their minds and only You can change their wicked hearts. There is salvation in Your mighty Name, Jesus, and I pray that these people will repent of their sins, that they may get right with You, starting today. There is still time for them to know the truth of what You've said in the Bible and be saved. I know family members that are now like this and I also pray for them, Lord. Lead these people and others out of the destructive lifestyle they have got themselves in, that they may find true joy which comes above. People can fabricate in their minds what happiness is like, but it is really only a fad that will not last over time, unless You have allowed it to happen in our lives, God. We can lie all we want to in our minds and say that it is truth, but still, it doesn't mean that it is in Your will. What I wish people would realize, Lord, is that there is a major difference in the lifestyle of a true Christian who loves You enough to follow You, and another person who says they love You and continue to live in their willful sins. And when people do this, that is when life is harder then it has to be for their lives. Such people have often found themselves get very sick with Aids, STDs, and other autoimmune diseases, which could have not happened, if they were not living this way. And Lord, I believe that You are our healer. Even people that are sick in this way can still be healed when they give their lives to You. So I pray for every person that is still suffering because of the sickness they got while being homosexual, that they may be healed. In Your mighty Name, Jesus, I pray this. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/06/2020)
Oh Lord, I pray that we will not become haughty and think we are better than others. Surely, pride causes people that think they are righteous to fall deeper into sin than others. And this I worry about, since I know of many people that have done some great things, and I pray that they are giving You the glory. If not, then they may find themselves in this same boat of being more prideful then they should be. Lord, I know how wrong this is, for the times I've felt that I was in control of my life is when, and was good with You. is when I let down my armor. This is when temptation came in and destroyed my life. It was in my pride that I fell hard, and it wasn’t for weeks that I could find myself at a good point with You again. It was pornography that slipped back into my life, of which I hate spiritually, but my flesh loves. What a vice this is for Satan to tempt people with. Surely, many people in the faith have fallen and not come back because of pornography, fornication, and adultery. These things leave stains in our lives, and I am so happy, Lord, that You turned my heart away from such evil things. I know that if I had not come to You as quickly as I had about my sexual sins, I would also be in the same boat as others are in now. So praise be to Your Name, oh God, and Savior of my soul. Your mercy and grace have saved my soul from death and unto life eternal. Your forgiveness is what I needed to desire more of You now and less of me. I am honored to be Your humble servant, for all I need is what You offer me. If I accomplish anything worthwhile, I give You all the glory. I love You, God. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/05/2020)
Lord, I love Your ways. To abide in You brings me love that never ends. Therefore, I need Your presence in my life at all times, that I may continue to do as You say. My thoughts, desires, and actions, are only filthy rags if they are not mended with Your righteous counsel in them. I don't wish to do the things in this life that displeases You, but only do what You command for me. I say this because my ways are evil without You. I say the wrong things, and hurt people that I love when I don't listen to Your voice. And sadly I have felt much grief and pain because of my own selfish ambitions. So rip out of my heart every part of me that is defiant against Your best wishes. Make me conformed to Your holy ways and not my own. Then, I will be able to listen and obey Your calling for my life. May I walk in Your continued love, that others will be blessed also. You have made me to despise wickedness and I am grateful for that. For this reason, I do not wish to have anyone fall into the same willful sins that I have. So instead, instill in me and other Christians that love You, verses from the Bible, that we might teach those that are lost and are walking in darkness. Help instill in us a light that will shine forth in the darkness, that people will be drawn unto You. May there be fruit in our lives as we get up each day to serve You in Your kingdom. Surely, You are my Shepherd, the vine of the vineyard, and I am willing to serve You, even until the ends of this earth. Lead me always. Keep me in Your care, that no person will take me down with them. Keep me upright in Your holiness that temptation will not lead me into sinning against You. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Oh Lord, I love You and only want to do as You would have me live this life. Even when people have hurt me over these many years, all I desire is that they receive my forgiveness, as You have forgiven me. Surely, how can I receive Your forgiveness freely, when I cannot forgive others? I would be a hypocrite of wanting something that I am unwilling to do myself. So cast out all anger, evil intentions, and resentment from every person's heart that are having a hard time forgiving there neighbor now. I ask this especially for those that call themselves Christians. These are the people who desire forgiveness from You and need to learn how to forgive others now, and not later. So come into their lives, as You have come into mine, and break down every wall that is up. Help these people see the good in all people, including those that have hurt them, while showing love to their enemies. Surely, it is so good to have Your mercy and compassion fall down upon me when I have wronged You. Therefore, all I wish is that people would receive the forgiveness and mercy that I have towards them. There are no more hard feelings towards anyone who has done me unjustly in this life, but only love as You love them, oh Lord. Thank You for teaching me this lesson on forgiveness and mercy. I am so grateful to be on the receiving grounds of Your mercy in my life. And because of my faith in You, God, who saves, I am moved to forgive and love as you do. It is a pleasure to love You and my neighbor as myself. Amen.

Oh Lord, may this new year be in your favor and not mine. Liken my life even more so to Your will and not my own. Help me to be more loving towards others, as you are so loving towards me. May I learn to forgive others, as You have forgiven me of my sins. Allow my thoughts to be upon You at all times, that I may not slip and fall into willful sin. My desire is to live my life entirely for You, and I need the Holy Spirit with me to do so. I am not strong on my own, but Your strength is what builds me up when I seek You. Keep me far from temptation, that I may serve You with a clean conscience and not having been stained through worldly pleasures. And Lord, as I read the Bible daily, teach me. Give me counsel, and help me apply Your teachings to my everyday life. I hope to get so much more out of scripture this year, so open my eyes to see the value of not only every chapter but every verse and words that are written. For in You is life eternal, and I wish that I may learn and grow in the faith. My own thinking is skewed by the ways of the world, but Your Words help take all the nonsense and false teachings out of the equation and push them aside. It is my desire to be in line with Your correct teachings, that I may walk in the good works that You have ordained for my life. Surely, Lord, You have given me eyes to see the truths of the gospel and I hope to be a better minister of it to the world. So shine down upon me, that all the world will know that Jesus saves. I love You, Lord. I am so happy that I gave my life to You those many years ago. This new life has brought so much joy, happiness, and love in my life, and I give You thanks. I praise You. Thank You, God. Amen.

Oh Lord, there is no one like you in the heavens and earth below. While others may lift up their favorite sports athletes, music artists, movie or TV stars, I am happy to lift You up instead in praise. There is nobody I'd rather follow then in Your footsteps. Other people have let me down over time, but You have never forsaken me. I thought that the riches of this world could make me happy, but really it was only in the moments that I had the good in things in life that I found joy, but it all passed as the newness of the items wore off, and other better things came out that I wanted instead. So I was always left feeling ripped off and never fully satisfied with what I had in life. This is not the goodness that You give, oh Lord. For what You do for us is never-ending peace, strength, hope, love, joy, happiness, mercy, forgiveness, compassion, and kindness. I never have to worry about going to anyone else for things, for You are the giver of all good things. What the world wants to do for me and give me doesn't even hold a candle of the types of things You have already done and will do for me, as I continue to trust in You. Therefore, I am so happy to say that my life is better than ever before. Because You are my shepherd, I am fed and nourished each day of my life. You have lifted me upon Your shoulders and given me strength like eagles. Therefore, my burdens are not only on my shoulders but Yours as well. Wow, You are so good, Lord. Thank You for all that You have done for me. I love You, God. I trust in You. All the praise and glory to Your mighty Name, who saves. Amen.
