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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (08/24/2019)
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.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (08/21/2019)
Lord, I pray that people will come to know You, the head of the body of the church. May people come out of the mindset that their religion can save them, but through You, Christ, alone. You are the only way to life eternal in heaven, and people of all Christian religions can know this special truth if they simply read the Bible. Your words are true and faithful and will lead anyone, like You did for me, to the truth. I also once believed that Mormonism was the one true church, but all their false beliefs crashed down on me when I opened up Your Word, in the Bible, and read it like a child. You opened my eyes to see that salvation only comes through You and not a religion. I had believed in a lie for so many years, to think that my faith was better than others. What mattered was that people knew You for salvation and not if a religion is true. Thank You for leading me out of this false church and into Your true church. I was once blinded, but now I see that people in many good Bible believing churches can be saved. Salvation does not depend on a building that we go to, but what You have set apart for us in Your church. You are the head and we, being many, are Your members. Some being more faithful than others, but we all make up a body of believers that just want to live out of our faith. I know that You are my God and nothing else can trump this. I love You Lord. May I always reflect that love for You in the people I am around. Help them see this love through me. My desire is to follow Your example, for it is leads to salvation. I praise You God. I trust in You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that people will have Your protection in their life. The same way that You have come into my life and have given me a way out of temptation, may others also find the same strength. I know how damaging it is to fall victim to sin on a regular basis, as it draws us further and further away from You, until we are no longer interested in what You have to offer. This is hard to admit Lord, but I know that this has happened to me many times over. Oh, how sorry I am for giving into the flesh, instead of seeking You when I needed You most. I gave into what I know is wrong and I know how this must have affected You. As you grieved for me, I also grieve for how this affected You and our relationship. Truly, my heart loves You and I know that it is hard to see this when I sin. Lord, I don't wish to have any more barriers between us anymore. Sin has taken a toll on my life and I wish that this will all change now. I confess my sins openly Lord. Cleanse me and fill me up with Your strength. May I become strong in what You desire in my life. Lead me away from sin and into Your love. I desire what is good and what is holy and that can only come from You. Cast out any darkness that is left in my life and lead me fully into Your light. I love You more than anything that the world has to offer me. There is no temporary satisfaction in You. Everything I thought was good is flipped upside down when You are in my life. There is so more joy and happiness when I am on Your righteous path. Nothing temporary is found here, but eternal joy. Thank You Jesus. Oh, how I need You, all the days of my life. You are my King and I worship You. Take my life, for it is Yours. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that we will get our priorities in order and desire to be used in Your kingdom. I know that You desire to lead us from the darkness of this world and to lead us into Your light. We just need to decide that doing Your will is most important. Then will You come first in our lives. Thank You Lord for teaching me this. I was so lost and then You pulled me out of the mess I was in. All it took was faith and a desire to confess my sins and You responded. What a great God you are to rescue me from a life of sin. I have never experienced the kind of love that you have showed me. How merciful you have been for me over the years. I didn't deserve this kind of love and care, but You showed it to me just the same. I never knew there was joy like this to be found until You came into my life. Thanks You Lord. All I desire now is to follow You. May Your light shine brightly in my life, that others may see the joy I found in You. Use me for Your kingdom, that many more souls can be saved. I wish to do more than believe, but do as You say. You are my God and all my trust is in You. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, it is truly awesome to be here in Your presence. You are oh so glorious in every sense of the word and to be here with You now is amazing. All the praises and honor to Your holy Name. I worship You, God. Thank You for giving me direction in this life and for leading me away from it evil and to do what is righteous. It is because of the cross that my life is changed. You have saved me through Your blood. What a merciful and forgiving God, You are. Thank You for Your love and compassion. You have breathed upon me the Spirit, and it has taught me what is right and what is wrong in Your sight. So I give You thanks. Thank You for teaching me Your laws, that they may be upon my heart continually. Without Your wisdom and knowledge, I am left wondering in this world. I have nothing to give me clarity on the situations I am in, without Your presence with me. So I ask that You make Your home in my life. Abide with me Jesus. My whole heart desires to be with You and to no longer be overtaken by temptation. Your ways mean more to me than the temporary satisfaction I get with sin and addictions. I don't need any more things in my life that leave me feeling guilt and empty. What I want is to be on Your path that leads to heaven. So lead me now, off of the path of destruction and onto Your righteous path, which leads to eternal life. I love You Lord. You are my God, and I will serve You and You alone. All my heart, mind, and strength, I give to building up Your kingdom. May You do many good things through my life. I am Your servant and am ready to do work in Your kingdom. Surely, living for You is the best feeling a person can get. Nothing is greater than to experience Your blessings in my life. Thank You God. I praise You, my King. Amen.

Oh Lord, I want to tell you how sorry I am for all the times I have given in and looked at pornography over the years. I know the damaging effects this has had on our relationship and others and I am so sorry. Thank You for giving me a will to fight against it now. If I am able to conquer it, it is because You have given me that strength. I no longer wish to allow this temptation and others to influence my life. The guilt and shame is unbearable in the moments that I falter. So I pray that you take me and others, when we are in this dark place and lead us to freedom. I wish that You would look inside our souls and take away all the lustful desires. Any wickedness in our hearts, we give to You. Make us whole again through Your holiness. It is doing Your will that I am truly happy. I no longer wish for the devil to get the best of me. His lies and deceits need to stop now and I know that You can help me. Every dagger he throws at my life, even though it is enticing, can be deflected, for You are my shield. It is true that I am not able to deflect His fiery darts on my own, but with Your presence in my life, I have amour. Because You build me up each day in Your righteousness, I am ready to go into the battle and come out victorious. This I know, for You have helped me conquer my desires to look at porn and masturbate. It is only when I walk away from You and do my own thing, that I am lost again. Therefore, I plead for Your continued presence. I need more of You and less of me. Forgive me of my sins. I no longer wish to sin against You, but walk faithfully in Your righteousness. You are my God, and I love You more. Lead me from temptation and into Your light. I love You. Amen.
