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.

Oh Lord, I love You and only want to stay in Your presence. Help me to not give in to temptation, but be led away from it at all costs. Nothing is worth more than losing out on an opportunity to do Your will. I've learned from the past that to willfully sin is to blind myself of what is right. Therefore, don’t allow me to fall victim to sin and death again. I've experienced enough of what guilt and shame does to a person and I am tired of it. I'd rather live in Your love and have Your joy every morning that I wake. So shine Your upon me, that all will see You inside of me. Help me to be bold in my witness to the lost. Help me find those that are lost and reach them with the gospel message of hope. I wish that every person would be able to wake up to their sins and draw near unto You in their confessions before it is too late. In saying this, my prayer is to also reach those that are casual or regular drinkers of alcohol, which is generally beer or wine. Doing such things, people are falling into drunkenness and allowing their minds to be clouded over. They are not sober but are as people of the world. Such people are not saved in Your kingdom, and I hope to reach them before their time is up. May Your words be in my heart always, that when I encounter people in the bar scenes, Your words will come out and convict them of their sins. Therefore, it will not be me judging them, but Your Words, which stand supreme. What people need is discipline, and to learn to fear You, while in sin. Then, will they repent and allow You to cover them with Your blood. Where there is forgiveness and mercy. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/30/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray for every person that is still living a life of sin. What they are doing is very destructive to not only themselves, but to others around them. So convict these people of the wrath to come, lest they repent and be made right with you, while in this life. Based on your Word, I know it is serious stuff to walk uprightly in this life and not continue living for the world. Truly, people have become very disobedient to Your will and don't even realize it. This is very sad, since sin and repentance are not taught as much, or not at all, in certain churches anymore. What we need are pastors that are leading the flock of Christ on the path of righteousness, and instead, they are leading them on paths that do not save their souls from hell. Oh Lord, convict these men of their sins, that they may stop beating around the bush when it comes to certain topics in the Bible, but begin to teach on them with boldness. This way, people will understand that using foul language is so evil, that even their faith is dead also if they continue to do so. There is so much people need to learn when it comes to sin and death. And without fully coming to You in repentance, these people will never be washed clean through Your blood. So I pray that people will desire to teach exactly what the Bible says and also be doers of the Word. Then, will people walk out their faith and begin to shine Your light for all to see. I love You, Lord. Your ways are true and faithful. I believe in You enough to give up my sinful lifestyle and follow You. This world doesn't even hold a candle to what you can do in my life. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/29/2019)
Oh Lord, I love and honor You. There is nothing this world can offer me that you have not already done for my life. Because Your presence is with me, I am filled with so much peace, love, and happiness. I welcome You, Lord, in my life now and forever. It is my prayer that You will always be with me. I am so much stronger now and I know it is because of Your great love for me. Only You could free me from the lusts of my eyes and the covetousness in my heart. You have given me better desires to serve You in Your kingdom. I am now walking in Your holiness as I seek You, Lord, daily through reading the Bible, praying, and doing Your will. I am unable to do this on my own, but only through the Holy Spirit in me. Thank You, Jesus. I praise You, Lord. You are so merciful and kind. Thank You for hearing my prayers and having compassion for my life. I am a new man because of what You have done for me. And now I have hope that others that are in bondage now, because of their addictions, that You will free them also in Your mighty Name. If these people would just come to You in all their brokenness, then You would make them whole. All I can do is lead these people, even while they are in sin, to Your holy presence in prayer, and You are able to do the rest while convicting them of the evil state they are in. So lead these people away from all their lusts and covetousness, while giving them over to clean thoughts that honor You. I say these things, Lord, in Your mighty Name, Jesus. Oh, how I love and adore You, God. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/28/2019)
Oh Lord, watch over us and protect us from the enemy. Don't allow Satan to get the upper hand in our lives. We would rather walk in Your light, then to find darkness in our lives once again. And this day, we give all our impure thoughts over to You. And if we have slipped up and given our hearts and minds over to such evil thoughts, we are sorry. Please forgive us for falling flat on our faces. It is our desire to follow You and to find victory over the enemy. So fight the fight with us, that we may be shielded, because of our faith in You. May Your words always be in our hearts, that it may lead us to do things that are pleasing in Your sight. And we come to You in prayer because we love You more than anything. The flesh is just an obstacle, sometimes, to going all-in for you. For that reason, take away anything in our lives that You disapprove of. Even the things we give our eyes over to in TV, movies and video games. We are willing to give up watching and playing anything that doesn't agree with Your standards. And with our music tastes, conform them to Yours, that we may be edified in the music we listen to and the TV we watch. And help us manage our time better. There is a time and a place for family time, but it is better to be serving You. So help us know when to stop what we are doing so that we can pray, read the Bible, or just go out and be used by You in ministry. We love You more than what the enemy and the world can offer. I've found joy that lasts, while in your presence. The best part is that I have no guilt when I am with You. Thank You, Lord. I trust in You. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/27/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray that people will not only make room for You in their everyday life, but long to do Your will above all else. There was a time that I fit You in my day, along with my own desires, but really Your will was not performed. Sure, I got some things out of the Bible and prayer, but really I was not made alive yet. It was then that You put it on my heart to put aside things in my life that do not glorify You. So You helped me give up watching the shows of this world, while helping me stop video games. Surely, the things that I was giving my eyes over to was not for You and was only leading me away from You, while giving me impure thoughts in the meantime. Looking back, I do not miss the action-packed movies on TV, and even the comedy shows, for they were always so crude and dishonored You through making killing and immodesty seem ok. So thank You, Lord, for delivering me from my video game and movie collection addiction. I used to think that having the best movies and games on Steam was going to make me happy, but again, it only led to much guilt and shame, because of how it made me feel on the inside. Those games often made me get angry and I would even blow up at those I love, while also giving me over to impure thoughts. Only You could change a person like this. So thank You again for freeing me from the bondage of sin. In Your presence, I've found freedom from the addiction of TV, movies, and video games. I don't need them anymore, but only more of You. Only You can fill me up with the joy I need, and give me over to the best things in life. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Oh Lord, I am grateful for this Christmas day. It is a wonderful day to celebrate Your birth. Though it is always an honor to think of You throughout the year, this time is so good, in that it is set apart to honor You and Your glorious birth. Thank You for coming down to redeem us from the laws of Moses. Those laws were heavy and often caused people to fall into sin and slavery. So You came and fulfilled them with the cross, of which You bore the sins of the world. Thank You for caring so much for us all, as to be the Lamb of God who paid the payment for sins, once and for all. Therefore, our faithfulness to You is what saves us now. I declare this in prayer, for I want all people to know that only You can save us. It is our faith that makes our lives whole. You are able to take the life that we are in now and help us turn from our sins, through repentance, because of our belief that moves us. I love You, Lord. You are the Savior of all. All things are possible because You came down to earth and did what we could not. No more am I on a path that leads to destruction, sadness, guilt, shame, and regret, for You are at the head of my life. I am now found joy, peace, happiness, love, and forgiveness. Thank You for leading me out of temptation and into a much better life, that loves and honors You while loving my neighbor as myself. I trust in You, God, to lead my life and to help me walk uprightly in Your sight. All I want to do is please You and do what You say. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/25/2019)
Oh Lord, oh how I adore You. You are Lord of all and I worship You. It is because of You, Jesus, that I have joy in my life. Even when sadness comes into my life, You are there to carry me and give me rest. I am at peace just thinking of Your bounteous blessings for my life. I surely don't deserve Your great love for me, but still You love me more than anyone else has and ever will. I want the world to know that I believe In You for salvation. For in myself alone am I nothing. Only through Your hands am I made strong. I am grateful to have You in my life. Everything makes sense because You are there. You have given me eyes to see, and now I can see what is of the world and what is for You. And my decision is to live a life that honors You and not my own flesh any longer. I am done with all the guilt and shame in my life, because of willful sin, and give it all to You. It is much better to live in Your freedom, then to live in doubt and fear. It is surely amazing to find the answers I've been waiting for, just because I called upon Your Name, Jesus. You are my Redeemer and the Savior of all. Thank You for coming down and being born, that we might be rescued from our sins. You had a choice to make and it was to sacrifice Yourself for the sins of the world, and You did it gladly. Surely, You are the Lamb of God, who took away the sins of the world. I love and honor You. Allow Your light to shine in my life, that many people's lives will be blessed. Because I have been given much, I can now give to others in need also. So lead me to those that are less fortunate and I will do as You command. I trust in You. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/24/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray for the lives of every unborn child right now. May they be protected by Your mighty hand. I don’t wish to hear about any more innocent lives being killed before they have a chance to be born. Abortion really makes me sad and I know that You have a way to stop this madness before it gets worse. So come into the lives of the women that are contemplating doing this vial and wicked act right now. And convict them that these thoughts are of Satan. Help them understand the worth of their future child. Even if they can't seem to think of a way to support the baby when it is born, may they talk to Elders in their church for assistance. And if no support is available from the church, family, or friends, give them hope in that You will make things work out, if they just trust in You. There are places that will help people them, that will deliver there baby at no cost or as little as possible to them. These are good-hearted people and I pray that these women will find such pro-life clinics. I know that there is adoption as a possibility, so I pray that these women won't throw this thought out either. All I desire is that the life of this innocent child, Your beautiful and precious creation, will have a chance to live out their life. How is it that people can think that they can mess with what You are forming in the womb and murder these babies? This is so sad and is murder! So those women that have already done this, may they repent and give their lives to You. Then, can they find refreshing and forgiveness for their sins. I love You, Lord. I trust in You for answers. Amen.

Oh Lord, it is heaven that I wish to be at when this life is over. And there is only one reason for this. It is because You will be there. I love You more than anything else and to have You in my presence forever is the best thing I can hope for. You are my bride and I can't wait to spend all eternity with You, my King and my God. If there is anything that You wish for my life now, please make me aware of such things. I do not wish to fulfill the lusts of my flesh any longer, for Your ways are more important to me. Therefore, use me in Your kingdom, that I may do something that is amazing in Your sight. It is the greatest joy of all to get out of my comfort zone and act upon my goodly instincts that come from You. I have seen many people come to faith because I decided to go out on the streets and witness Your truths with people. I have seen people be healed because You have answered mine and their prayers. Miracles are not a thing of the past, for You are working in me and many other Christians that love You with their whole hearts. Even people that are homeless are being fed, and given the things they need because people are out there serving them as You have served us. This is spreading joy and I cannot do this enough. So continue to use me and others in Your kingdom, until the day You call us home. Then, will we and others we've helped be with You in heaven for all eternity. So be near me all the days of my life and lead me from temptation. I love You, Lord. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/21/2019)
Oh Lord, I am so grateful for Your birth. Yes, Jesus, it is a blessing to know that my Messiah did come to earth, in order to save us from our sins. All my life I have been needing a Savior, even though I didn't realize it until I was older. My life was on the rocks for far too long and all this could have changed if I had just looked to You in faith early on. Then would my life have been restored much earlier through Your blood. I know that at this time I missed out on many blessings from above, and I am so sorry for wasting my life as I did. However, I know that You don't hold these past transgressions against me, which fills my heart with love and hope. I know that You can see my life and know the inner beatings of my heart, but I want You to know that I love You so much. Thank You for saving a wretch like me. You've heard my prayers and had compassion for my soul. I've never felt so much mercy and grace until You came into my life. I was so lost in this world, and now I am restored in Your love. Light shines brightly, and I am honored to walk in it. All Your good works are for me and for the welfare of others and I look forward to doing as You say each day of my life. I know that You want to teach me much more through the Bible, prayer, and just seeking You often throughout the day. So thank You for coming down to bring us Your good tidings. Surely, Your teachings are a delight to my soul and others. I love You and give You the praise and glory. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/20/2019)
Oh Lord, I pray that people will be attentive to Your promptings in life, and not give way to the evil one. Truly, Satan has a stronghold on people's lives right now and even they can't even see the deception that they are under. Even in this Christmas season does the devil try to lead people into believing in something else outside of Jesus. He has put Santa Claus as the center of attention during this time of year, making the story of Your birth, Jesus, not as important. If it was my wish, I would want anything that didn't give You glory to be removed from Christmas. So, Lord, my prayer is that people will no longer teach their children to believe in Santa but to believe in You alone. Help them to remember that You came into the world to save them from their sins. Then will gratitude fill their hearts and minds until they really begin to praise You and not man. No person deserves to be looked at as knowing us when we sleep and seeing if we are good or bad, for only You can see this and not a figurative person. This is only idolatry and leading people on a path without You on it. So I pray that people's eyes will be opened to Your truth and that people will change their wicked ways, starting today. May they give up believing in and teaching things that are not true to people and kids. Lying is serious in Your eyes and I pray that they will see this for themselves. I love You, Lord. I give You the glory and the praise. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/19/2019)
Oh Lord, I am only a humble servant of Yours, and if I have strength in my life, then it is by Your hand alone. Therefore, I am able to do all things by Your hand. Use me and I will bring your gospel message to all that will listen. Build a home in my life, that I may say and do as You would on this earth. Send down the Holy Spirit into my heart, that many people will be moved to know You, Jesus. It is my will, like John the Baptist's, to prepare the way for Your second coming. As I am prepared and waiting for You most diligently, I also wish to see many more souls be saved until that special day comes. Surely, the day will be fierce and people will be fearful who don't know You as their personal Savior, but those that do will rejoice, for their King has come. Yes, Lord, You are my God who I love and honor with my whole heart. There is nothing I'd rather do, then to be in Your will always. Your commands are like honey to my mouth. I love Your ways and wish that more people would delight in following Your commandments also. For in Your ways are we led to eternal life and happiness in this life and the next. If people could just experience the great joy in my heart, they would also fully surrender their lives to You, Jesus. Therefore, will I go forth and be a light unto the world, as You shine down upon me. I am not the light, but Your light is in me now, so that people will come to You for counsel, teaching, direction and more importantly, salvation. I love You, Lord. All the praise and honor to Your holy Name. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/18/2019)
Oh Lord, I am grateful for this new life. Thank You for rescuing me and leading me out of a life of sin. I may have thought that life was good back before I was saved, but I was so wrong. All the TV shows, movies, videos games, and things I accumulated never led me to find joy that lasted. They always got old and I needed something else to replace those things. Even the pleasure I received in the moment in pornography was nothing compared to all the guilt and shame I felt afterwards. Surely, a life of heartache and regret is not worth temporary fulfillment in the lusts of the flesh. Therefore, my marriage suffered because of these evil choices. So thank You, Lord, for healing my soul and delivering me out of all the bondage I was in. I needed a surgeon to go in and cut of out my heart all the evil and wicked things that I had added to it and my mind over the years and You did all of this. The day I gave You my life in prayer is the day that my life was never the same again. Instead of desiring to be fulfilled in my lusts and covetousness in earthly treasures, I am now fulfilled with the things You can do in my life. Even loving others brings me so much joy. TV is a waste of time now, for being engaged in the Bible is more important to me. And since I have cut out the TV time, I have so much more time to work in Your kingdom. You've also given me new desires that include better music choices, ministries to watch, and boldness to evangelize on the streets. I am made whole by Your blood, and the things of this world no longer bring me joy like You do. Thank you for washing me and cleansing me from within, that I may become a witness for You and not just a believer on paper. I love You, Lord. There is nothing else I'd rather put my faith in, but You. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/17/2019)
Oh Lord, I love You and honor You above all things. My delight is in You. People can take anything that I have in my life and I will still be happy, for my joy comes from You alone. Nothing this world has to offer me can ever compete with the blessings that You bestow upon me each day. Oh, how I love Your ways. I am so grateful to have left my old life behind, in order to experience what true happiness is like now. In the past, I was lukewarm and my deeds were wicked. My treasures were on earth and they brought me joy in the moment. And since my joy never continued, I was left wanting more and more of the self-same gratification in the flesh. I also needed the newest and greatest technological devices to be happy. And so my thoughts were corrupted with the lusts of my flesh, while also looking at pornography. I was so wretched and guilt-ridden for so many years. And although You know my life, not everyone else knows how I was delivered from such things. So I am honored to tell people that I have been set free by confessing my sins in prayer and giving my life to You, Lord. You heard my cries and wiped away my tears. I didn't want to live another day where I was addicted to things that I know You hated. So I asked that You would remove the filth from my life and forgive me. This is when You did the most unexpected thing ever. Your hand came upon me and brought peace to my soul. At that moment I was cleansed from all my sins through Your blood. I may have been unworthy to be in Your presence before, but all that wickedness was swept away. And in doing this, You have put in me a clean heart. Thank You, Lord. I am made new because of Your mercy and grace. I love You so much. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (12/16/2019)
Lord, I love and honor You above all else. There is no other person or thing that I would rather give my allegiance to, but to You alone, God. I trust in You, Lord, and not in what the world offers me. There are enough fake things and people that say they bring love, but really they only offer guilt and shame in the end. Therefore, I am done with all the lies of Satan and His temptations. Though my sins have been heavy for too many years of my life, I am happy now, since You have forgiven me and took away all my burdens. What a gracious God You are. I confess that You are the Son of God, Jesus. You came in the flesh and died for our sins, of which we were unable. Thank You for paying the penalty for our sins on the cross. I am also so grateful that You came into the world willingly, in order to save us from our sins. You knew that it would mean being killed and tortured, but You did it anyways because of Your great for us all. Surely, the Father loves us so much as to send His only begotten son to earth. I love You, God. All I want in life is more of You and less me. Lead me on the righteous path which leads to heaven. Help me be a light unto the gentiles, that more people will be saved in Your kingdom. Also, help me love others as You love them. I love Your Words in the Bible and I pray that they will be in my heart at all times. Then will I be ready to bear witness when You need me. Thank You, God, for everything. I praise and glorify Your Name. Amen.
