Oh Lord, I pray that Your love and peace will rest upon our souls. Help us to love like You love others. May people in the faith see You in us, that we may have a chance to converse and pray with them. I know that there are many Christians out there that desperately need someone to talk to and to receive prayer. To these people, I pray that You will put them on my path. This way I will get a chance to bless them and to make them feel welcome in the faith. Now, since I do not always know who this person may be, I pray that You will help me be a light unto every person I meet in and out of the faith. For even people out of the faith need to see You in us, for them to even want to know more. If we are conceded and into ourselves because of our religion, this will only end wrongly. I’ve learned this over time when pride has taken over my life. Thankfully, You have come and humbled me. Each day I need You to help me be even more humble and to always remember to give You the glory. I may be doing great things by Your hand, but You deserve all the recognition and the glory. I deserve nothing, for You have done it all through me. I am only Your servant. Thank You, Lord. Thank You for abiding with me, even though I don’t always deserve it. You are so patient with me. I trust in You, God. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that we will remember to keep Your laws and statues, no matter if they seem hard or not what we wish to do. As for me, my immediate family is very big into keeping genealogies, but I know in Your word that this practice is wrong. So how am I supposed to treat my family who continue in this practice that is false? I know that I need to treat them with respect, but I know also that I am supposed to help people understand Your truth. So I ask that I might do so in a way that is kind, loving, and respectful. Help me to be patient with them if the topic does come up and that my reason for saying it is wrong is based on Your Word, the Bible, and not my own opinion. What I think can get me into a lot of trouble, but if it comes from You, then the Holy Spirit will back me up. This I believe, Lord. You will always come through when I open my mouth to teach from the Bible. I trust in You, Jesus. You are the rock upon which I stand. Lead me in the ways of righteousness and help me to not go astray. Traditions can be good and all, but not if they go against what has been taught in the Bible. I’d rather follow You than anything else. I trust in You. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that Your words will come alive in us. That they will take off in our minds and in our hearts, that we may really learn from Your hand and not our own thinking. Give us wisdom, as we come to You daily in Your Word. All I desire is to learn from You and not what the world tries to teach me. Through the Holy Spirit, I am able to love my wife and my children, as I love You, God. My devotion to living in Your will is seen in the lives of my family and others. Thank You for searching my heart and for removing the things in my life that were not needed. I never needed to watch TV, but to read the Bible instead. I didn’t need to play video games, but to come to You in prayer instead. I didn’t need to spend time surfing the web and watching pointless videos when I could fill up my life with good things that come from You. All this free time has allowed me to learn from Your mighty hand. In worship, I have learned what it means to really love You and do as You say. I praise Your holy, Name, God. You are the one that keeps me sober-minded, holy, and chaste. Keep me in Your love. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that more people who are lost in false religions and cults will be saved. I know that it is impossible while they stay attached to it, so I pray that more people will be removed from them and come to You alone, Jesus, for salvation. Man-made religions are a killer in this society that we live in. So many people are starting up cults here and there, often for money reasons. Others become very big because of their feel-good messages and their teachings that only uplift. The thing is, God, is that their false reality of You, God, is unable to save them. They cannot leave out hell and the lake of fire, just to keep people coming to church. Leaving out repentance and getting right with You in this life also needs to be preached, but often isn’t. And other false religions have decided that they would save people on their own right through baptisms and marriages for the dead. This is an abomination and I cannot believe people are falling for such lies. I can’t even imagine how you must feel about these false doctrines and practices when it comes to the Mormon Temples. All I know, God, is that I wish to lead as many of them out of this false religion and to You alone, Jesus. Open their eyes and ears God. Help them find their way in this darkened world. I believe in You. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, my God, and my delight. I worship You. I give You praise. You are worthy. Have Your way in me, my King. Set me on Your righteous and holy path this day and forever. Keep my eyes fixed on You, Jesus. I am able to distinguish the light from the darkness when You are working through me. I love You, Lord. You are so good to me, even though I never always deserved it. It is awesome to know that You want to do great things through me, even though I have sinned greatly in Your sight in the past. Your forgiveness and mercy is beyond my understanding. How patient and long-suffering are You? I am just so grateful to be Your servant on earth. I pray that every person that I am able to talk to will have an open heart to at least one day receive You. May more people be saved and go to heaven also when they die. This I pray, in Your mighty Name, Jesus. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that people will begin to wake up to their sins. I am afraid that too many people who believe they are saved are not. That because they live in a willful sinful state, they have chosen a life without You. If they simply got a slap in the face or water splashed in their faces, maybe they would wake up and say sorry. Yes, God, You deserve to hear our sincere confessions, not a person confessing to their priest in order to just do the same sinful act again. This is meaningless and I cannot believe this blasphemy is still happening today. Where is purity in people’s lives? Are people even desirous to live a life pleasing in Your sight anymore? I know that I am but am also ridiculed as being a Jesus freak because of it. If people just knew what they were saying, then they would also want to be a Jesus freak also. What does this mean, it means that I want to live in Your presence and do Your will above all. The flesh is weak, but it does not have to ruin what I have with You, God. I’ve been addicted to pornography before, but I know how it turned my heart away from You, so it has become wicked in my sight. Along with this sin, the sin of homosexuality is plaguing this world like a sore thumb. What is even more awful is that there are churches that support it. Wow! I still cannot believe churches have stooped so low. Wake them up, oh Lord. I believe in You. I trust in You. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that You will help me remain faithful until the end. The flesh is weak, but You are able to make me strong to resist temptation. From reading the Bible daily, I have learned so much wisdom from You. You have helped me rightly divide the truth when it comes to false teachings and what Your words really say. Thank You for leading me in the truth and for pulling me out of every false way. I want to do Your will above all now. Keep me on Your righteous path that Your peace may strive within me. Help me to be humble, patient, and teachable, but never falling for the lies of false teachers. You are above all this, God, and are capable of leading me by the hand, even into greener pastures. I may think that my life is good now, but it can be even better if I simply remain faithful to You. Nothing in this world can compare with Your presence. I am happy when You are near, but sorrowful when You are gone. Thankfully, Your Spirit remains with me still. I have done some very bad things, and You know what they are. You are so patient to not give up on me. As I’ve prayed before, please forgive me. Don’t allow my past sins to cause a right in our relationship. I am all in now. You are my God and I will follow You till the end. I love You, Lord. I give You glory and praise, this day and forever. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that You will keep me safe from the enemy. Keep me on holy ground, that I may not fall victim to the evil schemes of the enemy. It is so hard to get those evil thoughts out of my mind when they are placed there, but with You in me, these thoughts have to leave. For darkness cannot abide in Your light. Your light is stronger than any impurity that may try to enter in. Therefore, all I desire is to be in Your presence at all times and in all places. Keep me upright so that falling is not an option. This life can be hard, but it is also that much more bearable and easier to go through when You are with us, God. Even when persecution rises, I won’t have to worry about suffering on my own, for You will be suffering right there with me. Your peace is beyond my understanding and I am grateful that it is for me also when times are difficult and when times are good. I need Your peace and guidance all the days of my life. What lies ahead of me is unknown, but I do know that what comes my way will be for my learning and growth in the faith. I don’t fear people or even death. If You have me, then I know that my place will be with You in heaven someday. I believe in You. I trust in You, God. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that You will be ever with me. Help me to not be led astray by money, the things of this world, and into false beliefs. Teach me how to live my life for You daily, and I will do as You command. I’ve had opportunities in life to become very rich, but not once did it seem right in that moment. There was always a compromise with the riches I would gain. And if there is ever something I have to compromise with my faith, it is simply not worth it. You mean more to me than all the riches in the world. It is also not worth leaving my family for a time, in order to earn more money. This is simply a selfish act that would keep me from seeing my beautiful wife and children for a time. It is hard to believe that people can give in to these temptations and leave everything they have worked for behind. As for me, I am grateful that You have not let me go astray when it comes to money. Sure, I still need to learn how to be more content with the money I have and not spend it so easily. Help me in this area and others that I am lacking also. I realize that I am not perfect, but far from it. That is why I need You every hour. Come abide in me this day and forever. I can choose what is right when You are guiding me. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, help me to love one another as You do on earth. May I learn to see people as You do. So many people are treated unkindly and that needs to stop. So do a wok in me like never before. Help me to see every people’s worth, and not as my flesh sees them. We often find ourselves very busy in this world and tend to be to ourselves when other people are suffering and need our help. We also judge people so often before we really meet them. I can just imagine how people are feeling after we have made them feel so terrible inside. These are the things that are I pray stops. There is already so much ridicule happening in the lives of non-believers, and I pray that we can be a light instead. And if this is happening behind closed doors with people in the church, I pray that they will repent and get right with You, oh Lord. Only by coming to You often in Bible study, and prayer, can You teach us how to live a holy and righteous life. Not a religious life, but a changed life for You. And as we step foot in this darkened world, help us to begin to treat the younger generation as our brothers and sisters. Even the older generation as our father and mother. If we meet a person who is widowed, that we will be so respectful to them and their loss. You can help us do all this, of which we will make a difference in this world. I trust in You, God. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that we will continue to be nourished by our father on earth and especially You, God. I am grateful for what my earthly father has taught me and raised me to become and know. He may have passed away, but he will never be forgotten. Surely, he is in a better place now. It is hard to believe all the grandchildren he and my stepmother has now. She may be alone, but still has all her children so close to her. I love my time with my second mother and am grateful to have her in my life still. My mother may have passed away also, but I still remember her and my father like it was yesterday. Lord, You have blessed me with the most loving parents. It is just sad that I cannot call my father up and tell him Happy Father’s Day. I can tell my brothers, who are fathers, and that is awesome, of course. I just know that this life is short. It is like a vapor. We are here one day and not the next. Even with my wife and my young girls, I love them to pieces. However, I just don’t know much longer I will be with them. I pray that I have been a good father to my children and that they remember the things I’ve taught them. May they never forget the importance of knowing You, Jesus. I pray that my children and my wife will come to a saving knowledge of what You have done for them. I am Your child and pray that my wife and my kids will also be in heaven with me when I eventually pass on from death to life. I believe in You, Lord. I trust in You. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, help me shine Your lights for all to see. You are my God and I wish to bring others to know You. Thank You for saving my soul, by forgiving me of all my sins. I don’t deserve Your love, but You continue to be patient throughout my life. I know there are days that I struggle and can’t find my way, and I am grateful that You have given me a roadmap to live by, which is the Bible. Whenever I feel like temptation is too strong, picking up the Bible and reading it really helps. You have certainly done a great work in the lives of every writer and person referred to in the Holy Bible. I am just grateful to have Your guidance in my life. Even through prayer, You have helped me gain more insight when it comes to each verse’s doctrines and teachings. I love to learn and to be led by You is something special. You have allowed the Holy Spirit to guide me into all truth, of which I love to teach on and lead people to know for themselves. The Spirit of God is upon me, and I pray that many more souls will see You in me and be saved. Help us all to walk in Your holiness, purity, and righteousness. That we will not despise what You have called us to in the faith, but live it out daily. If people are not reading the Bible daily, may they begin today. If they are not praying often, may they begin today also. You are the light that shines in my life, and I pray that Your light will enter others also. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, thank You for the pastors in my church. I pray that You will be with Him and continue to lead Him by the hand. His desire to have this calling in the church is very nice to see in this generation. Where there is so much sin that abounds, it is nice to know that these men are out there instructing us on how to live a life that pleases You and not the world. So often our flesh takes control of our lives, while leading us to do things that we know are wrong. This leads people to justify their actions, while they continue to look at pornography, masturbate, have affairs, and get drunk with alcohol. People of the church do these things and it is awesome to hear sermons that teach against these sins, while leading them to repent. To call upon You, Lord Jesus, that they may be forgiven. Only through You, can people be washed and be made clean. Even given a new heart with new desires, which helps them live different lives. Pastors and bishops that are teaching this way are doing Your will. They are Your servants and are leading Your flock the way You would. Thank You for these men. May they continue to seek You daily. That they may also not fall victim to the temptations of the devil. For we know that after we have fallen into sin it is so difficult to share the gospel, let alone give a sermon in church. So I pray for my church pastors and elders. Give them wisdom and strength to overcome temptation. I love You, Lord. Fill me up also with Your wisdom and strength. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray for the sake of every person in this world. We were each created for a very special purpose. Unfortunately, not every person realizes their potential with You in their lives. I wish that people would be drawn to know You as their Lord and Savior, but I am afraid that I can only make supplications for their needs. Help them find what is most important in life, which is knowing You and doing what You say is right and holy. As I intercede, even now through the Holy Spirit, I ask that You will touch people’s lives that are open to receive You, Jesus. Help them find the right path which leads to heaven. Lead them away from the darkness that is in their lives now and into Your abundant light. Help these people understand that being a Christian does not have to be difficult. Sure, it can be hard upon family and friends that don’t understand what it means to have a changed life for Christ. Our speaking of Jesus may not be taken in with thanks, but pushback, but this is all for You, God. We know that our journey may not be easy, but it is always worth it. We may be persecuted, spit on, and even killed for what we believe in, but it is why we live. To die in the Lord, is our gain, God. We thank You for saving us and forgiving our sins. We owe everything to You. We love You, God. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that we will come to know Your desires and not what our family traditions are leading us to believe. One tradition in my family was genealogical work for the dead, of which You have helped me understand that is all false and goes against Your perfect will. Thank You for bringing this to my attention, even though it was very difficult at first to accept that it was wrong. I can remember all the years of visiting my mother and her spending countless hours just translating people’s names, in order to submit them to the Mormon temple. In the beginning, I thought it was a great service to the Mormon church, but You finally opened my eyes. Over time, I saw this work in her life and other family members as having no Biblical foundation and, therefore, evil. Lord, You opened my eyes to the false teachings in the Mormon Church. Thank You, God. Through the Bible, I am able to realize for a truth that when we die, the day of our salvation has ended. We cannot justify that doing temple work, like baptisms for the dead, endowments, and marriage ceremonies can help them after they are dead. Surely, what we have done in this life is written down and sealed in our death. You know who believed in You and also did Your will. All others are unsaved and our prayers will not help them. I love You, Lord. I believe in You, Jesus. Amen.
Oh Lord, I love You and only wish that You would lead me in the ways of righteousness. I just know that my own desires get in the way so often and I am very sorry for this. In my own strength, I fall into sin and do things I know are wrong. That is why I come to You so often for help, that You may keep me strengthened and not let me fall. I know You understand what I go through in life and am so grateful for Your patience and continued forgiveness for my sins. It is my true desire to learn from You daily, even from the Bible, in prayer, and in church. Give me guidance and direction that will keep me on Your path and not let me go astray. I love my friends, but am willing to not hang out with some of them if they lead me to do things that are evil. Following You is more important than keeping any friendships with people. And help me know who and when to give to people. I get many requests to help people on Facebook and never really who needs help or not. Give me wisdom in these things and also when I am on the streets and encounter the homeless. I trust in Your guidance and direction. Speak to me, Lord. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that more people will not perish in unbelief in these last of days. May people who say they believe in You also build a firm foundation with You at the head of their lives. Help us all to not get caught up in politics, but in voting for the right candidates for office. As You have said in Your words, the Bible, there will be a great falling away because of a certain individual who will lift himself up to be like God. But those who have You by the hand will not be led astray by His lies and wonders upon the earth. I am made strong in You, Jesus, and not the things of this world, nor people who appear to be righteous on the surface. As people are so gullible with things that the government and people say to them, I have learned from You to judge them righteously. Surely, there has already been a great illusion of safety with masks and the coronavirus vaccination up until now, but I know that this is just the beginning. The world as we know it is changing, but I don’t have to go along with what is happening. You are my God and I will follow You no matter the costs. Keep me from harm’s way, but allow me to be persecuted as it is important for Christians to suffer for Your sake. I will not back down from the faith I have in You, even if it means losing my life. I love You, Jesus. I trust in You, God. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that people are abiding in You at this time. That their rest comes from You and not the things of this world. So many distractions are out there that only cause us to drift from the faith. Therefore, when You are near to our hearts, we are able to stay focused on the prize of eternal life. Yes, Jesus, we can’t wait for the day that You will welcome home the righteous. Those that love You, as I do also, can’t wait to be in Your presence for all eternity. It will be wonderful to be on the new earth and to enter the doors of the New Jerusalem. It will be extraordinary for sure. I can’t wait to experience the sights, the sounds, the tastes, and all other things that we will be able to do on the new earth. As You are Lord of the heavens and earth, It is amazing to think that we will be where You are, which is in heaven also. Angels are already so blessed to be Your servants in heaven, and even on earth for us now. Now, to think that I will be like unto them one day is amazing to even think about. Thank You for Your rewards on earth and all the things You bless us in daily. I can’t even fathom what blessings and rewards that await me and the righteous after this life in judgment. I know there could be punishment awaiting me, like unto the wicked, but You have spared me and forgiven my sins. Thank You, Jesus. Being with You now is all I ever wanted. Lead me safely home. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that we will prepare for Your coming. We may not know if we will be one of those people who will be alive when that day happens, but we will live for You each day nonetheless. If I am to die before that great and dreadful day, I will still see You. On that day, You will open all the graves of the righteous. To be among them, or be alive in that day does not matter. I just want to be raised up in the clouds to be with You, Jesus. Alive or in death, I will finally rise to be with You, my King. Lead, guide, and light up my life. Protect me from the enemy. Do not let the darkness of this world creep into my life. Build me up in Your armor, that I might fight against the enemy each time He strikes. As for alcohol or drugs, I will not let myself be tangled up in them. To remain sober-minded and not drunken in things like this is the least I can do for You, Jesus. Be near me all the days of my life. Help me to not stumble, but to walk faithfully for You. When this life is over, I pray that You will allow me to run to You, in order for me to hug You. I want You to know that I love You and that is why I live for You, Jesus. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that You will stir in each one of us a desire to live for You. I know that there are homosexuals out there that still believe in You, but their sinful lifestyle is keeping them from Your presence. Just like if I kept having sex outside of marriage, had an adulterous affair, or kept looking at porn, I would be in the same state as them. You have shown me all this, God. That sexual sin will keep a person from going to heaven, where instead, their destination is hellfire and damnation. And for this reason, I pray for their salvation. You have led me to speak to many different homosexuals and couples over the years and I am so grateful for that. Some of them have been accepting of Your words, but others have come mocking me and You in their defiance. I wish that each of them would be convicted of their sins and confess them openly unto You. You are so good to us, God, and I pray that every person will understand their need to be washed by Your blood. Yes, Jesus, the blood that was shed for us on the cross. If people would submit their lives to You, then could you do a work in them like never before. Where it was impossible for them to change, You are able to do that in them for Your glorious purposes. I know that In your kingdom sin cannot abound, that is why I live in Your holiness. Thank You for coming into my life, that I may be a worthy servant because of You. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that people will find You in all their trials and temptations in life. This includes me, God. As much as others, I need Your help in every sticky situation that life takes me. So lead us from temptation, Lord. Take us by the hand, that the fiery darts of the enemy will not faze us or take us down. A grave sin that You are well aware of is pornography, and I am afraid that millions of people are on their way to hell because of it. It surely tarnishes our spiritual life and makes us feel empty inside each time we look at it. It makes us feel like You would never forgive a sinner like us. How wretched and filthy we become in Your holy and magnificent sight. All I know from these types of feelings is that it is the enemy feeding on our sinful state. He loves it when we have left You and choose to be fed by our lusts instead. It is so terrible to feel this way and I am so grateful that You broke me free from this addiction to pornography. You heard my cries and came in and scattered the darkness. If any evil spirits abounded, they were no more in the name of Jesus. Thank You, God. You are with me now and fill me up in the Spirit. What a great God I serve. All I ask of You now is to never leave me and to be my protector at all times in life. Do not let me be in a place that I am vulnerable to do something that I will regret later. Lead me from temptation. I believe in You. I trust in You, Jesus. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that all people, who say they believe in You will have their hearts, eyes, and ears wide open for You. Then, can You come into their lives and teach them the truth, where every false teaching is removed. This can happen if people are willing to learn from You no matter what. This can be hard, I know, especially when someone has been born and raised in a religion that is not true. It is true that You can see the corruption of different churches on earth. That there are some good Bible-believing ones, but many bad ones also. That is why we need Your help, in order to attend churches that You would subscribe us to. Not to join one for salvation, but to learn and fellowship with other fellow believers. Truly, You are the head of the church and we are Your members. Some your feet, some your arms, some your toes, but all in all, Your servants, serving You in our own way. Thank You for leading me in the ways of righteousness. You have helped me escape the Mormon religion and to trust in You alone, Jesus. I am so happy that their bad theology is now removed from my mind and my heart. I thought it would take years for this to happen, but the day that I began to read the Bible daily, my mind has become clear from all their false teachings. Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Lord. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, may Your Spirit abide in us at all times. Help us to love one another in the faith as much as we love You, God. It is my prayer that we will never go to church again just to hear the message, but to leave quickly leave afterward. This is very discouraging to people who wish to fellowship after the service when most people leave so quickly. It is such a peaceful atmosphere after church service is over. I can just go to a table and begin a gospel conversation with another brother or sister in the faith. I learn so much from each one of them that I meet. You have blessed many of them with different spiritual gifts, which they are able to share with me. This is very encouraging, and my faith is increased just talking with them. And if these brothers or sisters are struggling or in need of prayer, I love how open they are so accepting of prayer and a helping hand. I know that I need help from people, especially prayer. You know that, God. That is why You are so often helping me when I come to You for assistance. You never leave me or forsake me. I just pray that I will have more opportunities to meet more people in the faith. That people will be bold and get out of their comfort zones, in order to greet others and have conversations after church. You have opened me up to talk to people and I know You can do the same for another. I believe in You, Jesus. You are my God and I worship You. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that each person who says they believe in You will also walk worthy of their faith. That what they say in church will also be seen in action. Not only in church, but outside the church walls also. All throughout scripture, we are asked to walk worthy and to seek first the kingdom of God. By so doing, a changed life does occur. I know this to be true, for You have come into my life, as I have allowed You in. Where different addictions and various sinful things used to dwell therein, You have come and cast them all out. Thank You, Jesus. There was no more room for living for the pleasures of the flesh, but to live for You, my God, now. Eternal life and heaven above can only be gained through following You and Your teachings, Jesus. I know this to be true, but I pray that others will also. Help people understand that in baptism, we put on Christ, that You may dwell in us through the Holy Spirit. And by so doing, we are allowing You, our God, to lead us by the hand instead of ourselves. I’ve found joy in Your presence. Even peace that is beyond my understanding. May Your holiness dwell in me at all times. Help me to act loving, respectful, and kind towards everyone I meet. Open my mouth, that I may speak what people need to hear in that moment they are with me. I believe in You. I trust in You. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that You will raise up more evangelists, teachers, pastors, elders, and other willing servants for Your church. There is so much more that could be getting accomplished if more people were serving You in Your kingdom. Each time I go to YouTube and see different people on the streets sharing the gospel with others, passing out tracts, and praying with people, I am so happy inside. Even the times I go on the streets and people join me in my efforts to reach the lost, my heart burns with gladness. This is because leading people to know You, Jesus, is the greatest calling we could ever have on this earth. To see more people be saved in Your kingdom is what makes me happy. Salvation only comes through following You, Jesus, and not religion. For this reason, do I proclaim this truth of the gospel to the world. I pray that people’s eyes and ears would be open to accepting what You have already said in scripture, instead of what they have been taught in their church or religion. I fear that people are being led by the doctrines of men, and if they do not understand this in their lifetime, then they could also be on a slippery slope to hell. This grieves my heart to know that people could unknowingly die and go to hell, when they thought they were going to heaven the entire time. But I pray, Lord, that more people will turn to You alone, Jesus, for salvation before their time is up. I believe in You. I trust in You, God. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that we will do unto others as You would do unto them. As we would desire to be treated, that we would treat one another in the same way. Help us to speak with Your love, kindness, and respect, along with Your great power. I do not wish to offend anyone by things I may speak negatively. Therefore, help me to remember to always think before I speak. Even with a prayer in my heart, especially for situations that are difficult. I do this all for You, Father. Thank You, God, for everything You have done and will do in my life. I am so grateful that You have come into my life, in order to save me. I still do not understand why You chose me among the millions of others. Why I am important in Your eyes. All I know is that I was lost and You found me. I was lost in my sins and You delivered me from the darkness and into Your light. Guilt and shame were heavy upon my heart and my mind, but You took it all and brought me rest and peace. Thank You, Lord, for Your forgiveness and mercy. I am not perfect, but Your presence helps me live up to Your standards. Therefore, to gain Your wisdom is vital to my life now. I love the Bible and reading it daily helps me learn what You truly desire. You have spoken to me through Your words and in prayer, and I will follow You. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, I pray that You will help me and others live for You. We are incapable of doing this on our own. Even Your ten commandments are out of our reach of keeping without Your mighty hand in our everyday lives. Our flesh is weak and we are easy targets for the enemy when we are not protected. Therefore, build us up in Your armor, that way the fiery darts of the enemy will be deflected and have no place in our lives. Temptations are often given especially for us and what our flesh desires, but they always lead to guilt and shame in the end. As my flesh is gratified in the moment, my relationship with You is shattered and tainted in darkness. I am unable to see You clearly after that until I finally reach for You in all my confessions. This is what I deal with on a yearly basis and I am so sorry. I wish that once and for all, the enemy would no longer come to my door. That He would no longer infiltrate my life, or the lives of my family, friends, and fellow Christians. But only You can put me in a strong tower that nobody can enter. My flesh may be weak, but I am made strong with You. May my eyes be fixed upon the prize of eternal life and never let it ever slip from my grasp. Forgive me for not always living up to Your standards. I want to live differently, so make me different, Lord. May there no longer be a struggle with sin, but a fight. In this life, I will run from the enemy and to You instead. I trust in You, Jesus. Give me strength. Lead me from temptation. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord and my God, keep me and others in the faith strong in what is right and praiseworthy. Keep our hands from doing anything that would go against Your will. I do not wish to do anything that would jeopardize my place with You in heaven. What I have already established in this life with You is more precious than gold. Help me to never lose Your presence. The devil wishes to lure me away from following You. He tries daily to tempt me into doing things that appear to be good on the surface, but I know will only lead me to be more guilty in the end. Even as I think about my day today and this week, I know that I have done things that were wrong and sinful. Forgive me of my sins. I no longer wish to do them again. Help me live differently. Build a wall round about my life, that the evil one will not cause me to fall again. Put in me an upright heart that only desires to serve You and You alone. Not to serve sin any longer, but the power and will of the Holy Spirit. I love You more than anything that I currently own or do. Rip out of my life anything that has its roots in darkness, that Your light will be the only thing that dwells therein. I love Your commands, for they bring me peace as I obey them. I do what You say, for I love You, God. Amen.
Oh, Father, who art in heaven, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to earth, in order to die for our sins. I am so grateful for His sacrifice on the cross. You didn’t have to send Him, but You did because of Your great love for us. There were many sacrificial offerings for sins over the years, but they were never enough. No matter the number of spotless lambs that were offered up on the altars, there needed to be an ultimate sacrifice for sins that animals could never take care of. And You always knew that Jesus would be the last sacrifice for sin, even the lamb of God. I give You thanks for this most important event on earth. I accept this sacrifice in my life and thank You and the Son for Your forgiveness and grace. May more people also come to faith in You, God. I pray that You will be forever with me in this life. That I will not be alone in life’s journeys, and trials that come my way. Give me strength, oh Lord. Allow Your love to come into my life on a daily basis, even when love is hard to find elsewhere. I believe in You. I love You. Amen.
Oh Lord, we rejoice just to know You. To have You in our lives is more special than anything we will ever know. Because You are alive and our God also, this means that You do care so much for our lives. We are not just sitting idly by worshipping an idol, but worshipping the God of the heavens, of whom is really listening and acting upon our prayers. Yes, God, I rejoice and give thanks to my king. I am not worthy to even be in Your presence, but because You have shed Your blood for my sins, Jesus, I am forgiven. Thank You, Lord. Thank You, God. I pray that You will forever lead me by the hand. And not just me, but my family also. Help each one of us find You in our own way. I do know that my youngest loves to pray over the food, so help her grow in this desire to know You, God. And help my oldest daughter find even more time for You outside of our family Bible studies. Lord, I need my children to be a light in the school they attend, and as they grow up and have their own family one day. And may my wife find more time for You. She means the world to me, as You do, God, and I pray that she will grow in the Lord as I grow in the Lord also. Help us to grow together with You as a family in the faith. May our minds be fixed on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous, and praiseworthy. These good things come from Your hands. Thank You. I love You. Amen.
