Oh Lord, I pray that those in the faith will become doers of what You say and not just believers in word only. I know that our faith can do great and mighty things in our lives, if our trust is truly in You and not in ourselves alone. However, this only matters when we decide to live for You and no longer for the cares of this world. Lives are changed and darkness is scattered when You take root in our hearts. It is when we are encompassed by Your light that our eyes are opened to our current sinful lifestyle and we are convicted of our sins. Then, as we give ourselves freely to Your will, and repent of our sins, there is freedom found because of Your blood that was spilt for us on the cross. We may have strayed from Your presence and done our own things for many years, but all this is over when we finally give our whole hearts to You in our confessions. I am so grateful Lord for Your mercy. Thank You for showing me grace, even after seeing me live in sexual sin for many years. You heard my cries, even though I didn't think You could care for someone like me any longer. I deserved Your wrath, but instead You showed me compassion and gave me another chance at life. What a great God You are. Surely, I was wrong when I thought that my faith, without doing Your will, would save me. This only led me on a dark path, of which sin took over my life. Now I know Lord that when I live in Your will is when sin does not abound. I am free from shame and guilt, while doing Your good works and my conscience is clear. It is joyful when I can abide in Your presence and bless other people's lives. Doing Your will truly makes me more happy than I could possibly imagine. I love You Jesus. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that all our grudges will be cast aside today. May there be no more feelings of resentment in our hearts any longer towards those people that have wronged us. I know that it is hard to forgive someone that has hurt us so badly, but I also know that we do things that hurt you so badly and we also wish Your forgiveness. So I pray that we will not be so willing to ask for Your forgiveness when there are still walls up in our lives. Instead, look into our hearts now and if there be any ill feelings towards anyone, allow Your peace to take its place. And if relationships are broken, because feelings were hurt and wrong things were said, may we also follow the Holy Spirit and come to these people and tell them sorry. It may be hard to say sorry or tell someone that they are forgiven, but it is always worth it. And best of all, there is rest in Your great love that comes from doing this. Even broken lives can be restored because of our trust in You and not what our flesh wants to do. It is truly a blessing to just trust in You, Lord and showcase Your love and kindness to all people. When these same people, that we forgive react positively to our love toward them, everything changes for the better. What I have learned Lord is that when I just do things by Your will and not mine, that everything works out for the good. And most of all Lord, I am so grateful for teaching me what it means to forgive. It is Your great love, mercy, and forgiveness towards me that has changed how I treat all people now. May I ever learn to love as You love me, each day of my life. This type of compassion is what I need in my life also and what I need to show people to be happy. It is because, seeing people happy is true joy. I love You Lord. Amen.

Lord, I pray that we will be more vigilant in knowing Your ways, that we ourselves will not willfully sin and not even know it. And as parents, teaching our children what is right is key to raising children to love You and to hate the darkness. Therefore, help every father and mother to love You more than the lusts of the flesh. May we long for Your holiness and not things that only lasts a moment. I know that Satan wants to deceive us into thinking that we do not have to wait to find our true joy, but that we can have it all now. This is such a lie and almost took me under, if it wasn't for Your mercy. How deep a hole I once was in my adultery and pornography addiction and if You had not helped me get out of this mess, my life would be wrecked, if not dead, because of my mistakes. Surely, Your punishments and wrath was upon me each day that I willfully sinned and did things that was only pleasing for the moment. If I had continued down this path of destruction, I would never have known Your great love for me and instead, I'd have hell to pay come judgment day. Thank You for keeping taking me home Lord and hearing my cries, though I had deliberately walked on Your commandments for many years. I was so wrong and I am so sorry for the life I once led. You could have just kicked me to the curb, but instead You took me in and cleansed me of all my sins. It was Your blood, Jesus, that washed me clean. Now my life is different and I can think clearly. What a great God you are for sparing my life. Oh, how I love You Lord. You are my God and my delight is to serve You. Amen.

Lord, I pray that parents will desire to raise their children in Your ways, that they may know what is right and what is wrong. Also, help them understand the need to be a good example to their kids, that they may see what a Christian should live like. It is one thing for us to teach, but another thing to practice what we preach. Your words have taught me this and I know now how important it really is to be doing of what You say and not just a hearer only. So come Lord and make Your home inside of our hearts this day. Teach us what is holiness, that we may live accordingly. And if there be any sins in our lives that is keeping us away from Your presence, make it known to us now. I know that I can never learn how to do what is right in this world if You are not with me. That is why I need Your continual direction and guidance in my life. I also know that I will never be a good example to my children if You are not leading me and my wife by the hand. For this reason, I come to You in all humility, desiring to receive Your counsel, that I may be a better father figure to them, as You are to us. May my children see Your good works in my life and also desire to do the same things. Open their heart and ears, that they may be teachable, when it comes to the Bible and Your ways. May the Holy Spirit come into this house and attend to our family's needs each day of our lives. Your ways are righteous and I pray that our ways will be the same. I love You Lord. You are my God and I trust in You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that people of all religions will one day understand the need to worship only one God and that is You, oh Lord. Help people realize the idols in their lives now, that they may be convicted of these things and desire to give them up for You. Surely, all idols of stone, pictures, or other things that are being bowed down to or served is idolatry. Doing such things is truly awful in Your sight and I wish that people would stop it today, that say they love You. I know that You have the power to remove every idol of Mary, the Saints, Buddha and anything from a person's heart, that is blocking them from worshipping You alone. As long as people are open to Your will, will they also yearn for Your commands and not want anything to come between them and You. This includes our time watching sporting events, playing video games, watching movies or TV, or spending time outdoors. I pray that none of these things will ever take my time away from You again. In the past it was video games, TV and movies that led me apart from Your love. And in doing this, I was caught up in pornography also. Surely, the idols I put before You almost destroyed my life and my marriage. If You hadn't come to me in my distress and woken me up to my sins, I would still be lost and broken today. Thank You Lord for caring so deeply for my needs and my life ahead of me. I know now that nothing can come before You in this life or the next. You are my God and I am willing to give up anything to have Your presence in my life. You are worth more to me than anything else I can gain in life. I love You dearly, oh Lord. You are my greatest treasure and my reward. Amen.

Oh Lord, I am so grateful for Your presence in my life. If it was not for You leading me, I would still be worrying about my job situation and my health issues. Instead, because my faith is for You and that I only want to experience Your love in my life, everything has worked out for the good. You have never stopped loving me and even through my health problems and job situation, You gave me peace through it all. All I had to do is seek Your hand and my path was made straight. I knew exactly what I needed to do next. Even my health situation ended with You taking over my pains and healing me. Thank You so much Lord. You are such a blessing in my life. I prayed that You would touch my groin area and it would be healed. I told You that I had faith and knew that You were there for me and You answered the call. This I know, because Your promises never fail. And because of this Lord, I was able to experience that healing touch and receive a new job also. Thank you so much Lord. You are such a dear Father and truly cares for my life. I may not be perfect, but strive every day to live a life for You. Because without You I have no peace, but only pains. It is hard to even imagine a time that You have not been a part of the life. Surely, I am strengthened daily in Your great love. I have peace day in and day out and know that You have my back, when times are hard. My flesh may want to give up sometimes when it is hard, and even look at other ways to be happy, but this is always for naught. I have learned from the past that doing Your will is the greatest joy of all. I love You most, God. All the praise and the glory to Your holy Name, Jesus. Amen.

Lord God, I know that many people have hurt me over the years, but I know that with Your love in my life all of the anger inside of me is washed away. My old life is in the past and all I want to do now is love everyone, as You love us. There are no more grudges, but only forgiveness for all people, no matter the circumstances. Because You have my hand and have shown me how to love, I have no more need or desire to harm others that have hurt me, but only show them love in return and help them. It is Your presence in my life that helps me understand the worth of every person and to just love them where they are at now. Even if someone now wants to show me harm, even physically hurt me, I am able to bare this with Your peace in my life. It may be hard to not retaliate against those that hate me, but it is in Your will to continue to reach these people with Your kindness, so I will do this all the same. It is only hard to forgive one another when I am not living in Your light, but for the world. All other times that I am being led by the Spirit is when I am able to make better choices and simply forgive others, as I desire the same from You Lord, when I fall. I know that I am also to blame when it comes to hurting others, when Your love is not inside of me and I hope that these people will have a heart to forgive me as well. Surely, forgiveness and mercy is what we need in this life and I pray that I may be the first to show it when it is asked of me. It is the least I can do because of Your mercy and forgiveness for all my sins. Thank You Lord. I love You. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (06/08/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray that people will understand the importance of following You. Not that they are forced into anything, but that their hearts desire to do the right thing, starting today. I know that even so-called Christians need to make this choice or pay the consequences later in judgment. If we desire to live with You on this New Earth and New Heaven, then our lives need to be for You also in this life. It really gets me thinking how people can think that they can just do their own things and simply say they believe in You, and be saved. This is such a false teaching and is even making a mockery of what You have said in scriptures through John and Your holy prophets. It is clear that to enter into the gates of New Jerusalem, we need to be worthy of Your presence. Even those that will eat from the tree of life ought to be obeying Your commandments each day. I know and many people know this as well, but instead their actions say differently. So I pray that people will stop being Sunday Christians, but truly live each and every day by what Your Word says and seek You often in prayer. And if we truly love You, then we will be reading the Bible daily and doing what You say. You will become the king of our lives and not just somebody we know of. For I know that when Your Holy Spirit comes inside of me, I want nothing else but more of You and less of me. I love You Lord and this love has led me to love others the same way. May I always be found worthy in Your presence. Help me to fight against temptation and win the battle, that I may always be on Your side. In thy holy name, Jesus, Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (06/06/2019)
Lord, I pray that people of all nations will be awakened to the truth, which is found in the Bible. May these people also learn to love Your ways and not the ways of mankind. Help them to understand that beliefs and doctrines of men are dangerous and only lead to destruction. This includes worshiping idols. There is so much danger in the world we live in, not only physically but spiritually. We are fighting the battle between right and wrong each day and it makes it that much harder to know the truth when what is evil appears good. This is why, Lord, that we need to always have our eyes open to the deceitfulness of this world. And I know the only way we can do this is if we are built up in Your armor and have Your words in our hearts and in our minds. This way we will know if the teachings we learn in church come from You or not. And when we find out that teachings are not found in the Bible, help us know to question the person that is teaching and, of course, leave a false church behind. It is one thing for a person to wrongfully teach something that is contrary to God on purpose and not purposely do it. So Lord, we need people to question pastors and teachers when they have went against Your Word, and if they are not willing to see the wrong in doing so, it is also good for us to not stay with that church any longer. So may we always walk in Your light, that Your truth will always be with us. Thanks You Jesus for showing us the way. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that people that say they love You now, will also obey Your commands and do the things that are pleasing in Your sight. May mine and other people's testimonies of You speak louder than words, but also speak truthfully by our walk with You. Testify in us, Lord, what we ought to do, that is delightful and holy. Help us stay focused on things that are heavenly and stay apart from the wickedness of this world. I know the pains and sorrows that addiction can do to a person and I am so grateful that You have come into my life and brought me out of a life of bondage. I was surely enslaved in sexual sin, greed and covetousness, but through Your grace, I am healed. Through Your words, my life is strengthened enough to follow in Your light and to resist temptation now. Your words combined with prayer and living out what You say is true has built up the armor of faith in my life. Now I am able to do things with a clear conscience and know that what I am doing is for Your will and not my own. Surely, what makes me happy in life is not what this world offers but the love You bring to my soul daily and what I can do for others. As long as I have You near me, there is joy that never ends. This is what is most precious to my soul and what I need to be happy. It is not the things that this world that brings happiness, but Your presence, Lord. I am in awe at Your beauty. Thank You for Your forgiveness and mercy and leading me from darkness and into Your light. I can't wait till the day I will be with You forever in the New earth and heaven. I love You Lord. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (06/03/2019)
Lord God, I pray that I and every other believer will keep the faith and stand strong in it till the very end. May every person that follows You now also abide with You always. I know that there are many people that have once knew You, but have since found their pleasures in this world and even died in their unbelief. Instead of seeking Your hand, while they had time, they instead gave it all up for the lusts of the flesh. I know that this is the devil's mission on earth and we must fight the good fight every day of our lives, or else we will also be among those that fall away. I am so grateful God for the Bible and for prayer. If It wasn't for Your words that are in my heart daily I'd be back committing the same old sins once again. It is because the Holy Spirit has come upon me is why my heart is made strong to resist temptation and sin. I know its effects on me and I don't want the shame and guilt that comes with it any longer. Instead, I desire to be built up in Your love, peace and joy. It is not worth having temporary pleasure in sexual sin, for it only destroys the soul. This is a killer of many people now a-days. Because so many people that even call themselves Christians live a secret life of pornography, I know that they will be judged harshly by Your hands. They will not be among the first resurrection, to life eternal, but instead be involved in the second, which is the second death and damnation in the lake of fire. So I pray that people's eyes will be opened to their sins and that they repent, starting today. These things I pray, in thy holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
