Oh Lord, thank You for first establishing your house upon this earth and then opening the doors for us all to have Your presence in our lives. We need You in our lives, God, so thank You for establishing Your temple in us now. It would be so difficult to know Your will if I had to be in a specific place to know it. So thank You for ripping the veil in two, when You were raised upon the cross. This made it so that we can all come unto You, which I am amazed and honored to come unto You now. Thank You, Lord. I pledge my life now and forever to seek Your hand first in my life. I love Your counsel, even when You chasten me does it bring me down to my knees in repentance. I know that I am not perfect and need You to correct me when I do fall. I am not unhappy by this at all, but so happy that You care so much for me, as to want to lead me on Your path of righteousness. So even now do I come to You in my confessions. Lead me out of the darkness and into Your light. Forgive me of all my faults that I have committed. Lead me from the enemy, oh Lord, and into Your matchless arms. This empty life, where I always need something new or better to be happy, is not meant for me, but only Your love that You give me. When Your presence is with me, I am fulfilled. Even Your mercy and grace awakens my soul to seek You more and more. I love Your ways, oh God, and love You with all my heart. If I have done anything good, it is by Your hands. Thank You, Lord. Amen.

Lord, I praise You this day and forever. You are holy and I love You with all my heart. I cry out to You now in honor and respect to my King. Oh, how I adore You, Lord. There is no one like You, God. My life is secure because You are in my life. I am strengthened each day because of Your presence. I don't need the things of this world to be happy, but only You, God. Because You have allowed the Holy Spirit to be with me, my life and my family have been uplifted in Your love. All I need is You, Lord, and everything else not only makes sense but falls perfectly in my steps ahead of me. Truly, as I have sought after You, has my passions been satisfied. My desires have been fulfilled because you have blessed me. Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Lord. Thank You, God. I am not worthy of Your love, Your respect, Your compassion, Your goodness, Your mercy, Your Grace, and Your kindness, but You still come to me. What a Savior I have. You have heard my cries and have comforted my soul. I am perfectly at peace, for in You I am able to rest. You are the anchor of my soul, who gives me life and light abundant. I don't have to go out searching for love, for You showcase Your love to me every day that I have breath. Thank You for forgiving me and cleansing me through Your blood. The cross has given me another chance in life to be made clean. There is no more guilt or condemnation, but gladness and much joy. Thank You, Lord. I praise You, God. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, it is so good just to lift my hands up in praise and worship Your great Name. There are even times that all I want to do is move around while crying out to You in prayer. Some times when a worship song comes on, I just want to dance before You, for You deserve all that I am within me. I am saved because You died for me on the cross. I am so blessed because the Savior of the world decided to dine with me. My life is changed because You are with me now. I can call upon Your Name and know that You will be there to answer me. There is no doubt in my mind that there are great and mighty things in store for my life, because I seek You often, even in my thoughts. Thank You so much for speaking life inside of my lost soul. Because the Holy Spirit is with me now, I am made alive in You. There is no holding back the things I am able to do now because You have me by the hand. Even when I was in sin, You heard my cries and carried me on your shoulders to safety. I am no longer weak but made strong in You. I can do all things, because You strengthen me in Your Word, in prayer, in worship, and in service to You. Thank You, Lord. I pledge my whole life to serve You now and forever. Come and make a place for me not only in heaven but inside of me at all times. With Your shield, the enemy has no place in my life. I can walk in Your love and not have to worry about sin and doubt entering my life. You have paid it all for me. Now, I just need You evermore. I love You, Lord. All the praise and glory to Your great Name. I honor You not only with my words but in my actions. Use me for Your kingdom. I honor You. Amen.

Oh Lord, thank You for this life. Thank You for helping me, though I don't always deserve it. You have not left me comfortless, but have poured upon my life the Holy Spirit. Therefore, if I am being led, it is by Your hand and not my own. I once lived apart from Your love, but it was never something that satisfied my soul like it is now. In all my sins was I more pained because of the guilt that was weighing upon my life. I may have liked it in the time that I looked at women to lust, but then felt awful in my heart later on about it. Even the pornography I looked at, ate at my soul afterward while making me feel so dirty inside. I know that I was not acting the way I should have, especially when I went so far, like David did, and had an affair with another woman. This really took me down the road of depression and my soul was heavy with Your wrath. Thank You for not striking me down at that time in my life, while allowing me to surrender myself to you. I may not have known You then, but I am grateful that You have allowed me to come unto You, that I may know You now. The day I pleaded for Your forgiveness, not knowing that You would respond favorably, is when You did come. While in Your presence, I felt peace like never before. It was like You had Your arms around me and never wanted to let me go. Oh, thank You, God. That day, Your mercy fell upon me and I was yours. Thank You for Your forgiveness and grace. I was once living a life of sin, but all this has changed since You have transformed my life. I have been cleansed by Your blood and am so grateful. You are my Savior and my greatest joy of all. I love an honor You with my whole heart. All the praise and glory to Your mighty Name, Jesus. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray for every person that has hurt me. These people do not know what they are doing, or else they would repent and allow Your love to carry themselves in this life. People would not be calling me and other people names if they knew what this was really doing to us. They would not be out starting a fight, but understand that the person's life that they are harming is relied on by their family heavily, in order to be a good father or mother to their children. Truly, making other people feel bad is not what You have ever intended people to act like. Instead, they act out in their selfish ways, and the innocent are affected wrongfully. And though these people are wicked, because of their sins, I plead, Lord, that You will help me love such people. Even while they are hurting me or someone else I love, will I tell them about You and how You died for their sins on the cross. That through following You, they can be saved. You do have the power to cleanse us from all our sins. No matter what we have done in this life, there is still forgiveness and mercy. If these people that carry anger in their hearts could just experience what it means to be loved by You, then all this would be stopped. They would look to You in faith, as we have Lord. So I pray for people that are hurting inside, while causing harm upon others, will come to the feet of Your cross. May your brothers and sisters in the faith also show continued love to their enemies. I love You, God. You mean everything to me. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/20/2020)
Oh Lord, I love You. Doing Your will means more to me than being fulfilled in the flesh. I am not willing to have myself be scarred by the lusts of this world any longer. It is not worth being pained by the sins I have committed and the lives I have then affected wrongfully. I am sorry for the life I once led, while in my sexual sins. Back before I knew You I was engrossed with pornography and even an adulterous affair. And when it dawned on me how far I had fallen, I saw myself as a wretched sinner. Surely, You could have struck me dead in that time of my life, while I would have been destined to hell, but You showed me mercy and love. In my sins, I called upon Your Name and You rescued me. Though what I had done had caused many people to distrust me, You never gave up on me. I may not have had the strength to live any differently, but You still put Your Spirit in me. Now I have new desires and a willingness to serve You. Thank You, Jesus. It is because of what You have done for my life that my life is now different. Because You died for my sins and I have made You the Lord of my life, I am cleansed from all my sins. You have shown me compassion while forgiving me. I never knew what love was really like until You came down and opened the door to me in Your Father's house above. I was the prodigal son, but have returned, my Lord. Thank You, God. I never wanted to leave You, but the world had a stronghold on my life. So I praise You now and forever. I glorify in Your holy Name. My soul sings hallelujah, for my Savior has come to restore my life into the greatest joy of all. I love You, Lord. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/19/2020)
Lord, it is my prayer that people will start reading the Bible for themselves. This way they will begin to know Your truths in Your Word, and no longer be deceived by the doctrines of men. I am very worried that too many people that say they are Christian are actually believing in false doctrines and don’t even realize it. It would be very sad to see these people go before You in judgment one day, not realizing that they were walking on the path of destruction when they died. This would be devastating, God. And it is not my wish that anyone should perish in their unbelief, but to know You and to find wisdom and understanding from the Bible. So wake people up from all religions, so that people will decide for themselves to know Your truth. Then, can You pour into them the Holy Spirit, that they may be led to know the truth from above. Truly, it is taught in scripture that Mary needed a Savior and therefore magnified the Lord. So we ought to also worship You, oh Lord, and not Mary. It is also taught that Mary was not always a virgin, but had her own family. So people that pray to the virgin May are very off track and need to repent. For surely, this is idolatry and is uncalled for in Your Kingdom, oh Lord. Convict such people to throw out there rosary beads. To break into pieces their idols of Mary and the Saints. Surely, we cannot walk in Your presence if we continue to do things of the flesh. So this day, I promise to allow You to cast out of my life anything that is contrary to You. And my prayer is that people in the Catholic faith will do the same. That they will begin to read the Bible daily, pray often, and come to You, as their personal Savior. I love You, Lord. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/18/2020)
Lord, I pray that my thoughts will always be for You. That You will continue to lead me by the hand, and that the enemy will not overpower me. I do not wish to make the wrong decisions in life, which will only draw me away from Your presence. Doing this has only caused me to be in more pain and anguish than I desire. It also causes me to be full of guilt, because of my sins. Therefore, I know that in these times I have let You down and I am sorry. It is not my intention to go the opposite way in life but to be on Your righteous path. So I ask that You will forgive me, and not allow my flesh to fall down into sin because it is weak. You are my strong tower and my deliver, so I know that You can give me the strength to overcome sin, that I may no longer walk in it. And I come to You for full deliverance from the enemy. I need You in my life, Lord. Come and make a place in my heart, and in my mind, and in my soul. I love You, and I will show this through my obedience to You now. My ways are filthy, but if You are leading me, then they are righteous. Lord, I don't only wish to be fulfilled in Your love, but also show Your great love to everyone I meet. Cause me to be filled with the Holy Spirit, that Your kindness, gentleness, meekness, love, compassion, mercy, and patience will be shown towards all people. No person will be excluded, for every wall is torn down with Your love in my life. Every person that has wronged me is now forgiven, and hardships are mended because You are working in me. I trust in You, Lord. I love You, God. I give You praise and worship You now. Amen.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/17/2020)
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.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/16/2020)
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.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/15/2020)
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.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/14/2020)
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.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/13/2020)
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.
# Permanent link to Today’s Prayer (01/10/2020)
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.
