You ever get stuck as you begin to pray? You kinda sorta know what you want to say to God but the words just won’t flow.
I’ve been there. A LOT. I get it. Sometimes we just need a little help with articulating our thoughts.
To help you with your prayer life, I’ve designed these prayer guides. These are prayers that I’ve used in different seasons in my life as I’ve faced different challenges. Feel free to use these however you see fit in your own prayer life. Again, they are just guides to help you along the way. But God knows your heart. Ask Him to help you make the words flow out. HE CAN and HE WILL 🙂
“Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you” — Jeremiah 29:12
Father God I come to you today asking for forgiveness. I ask that you forgive me for any unhealthy comparison that I’ve made between myself and others. Forgive me if I’ve allowed envy or jealously to infiltrate my heart in anyway. I know that you have commanded me to NOT covet anything or anyone.
Strengthen me, O Lord. Help me to see me the way that you do and not discount my own beauty inside and out. For you have said that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Help me to only strive to please you and not see any “lack” in my life but only abundance. The sweet unique abundant life that you have chosen to give me and only me. This, I pray. In Jesus name, Amen.
Thank you Father for allowing me to see another day. Thank you for the gift of life. I appreciate all my many blessings and I don’t take anything for granted. Watch over me and all my loved ones today as we try to live a life that is pleasing to you. Strengthen us, encourage us, keep us in good health– mind, body, and spirit.
Lord, help us to live out our PURPOSE here on Earth. Also, allow us to have joy and experience love and peace each day so that we may be a LIGHT for others that always leads back to you. This I pray, in Jesus name, Amen.
Lord, I pray for a better spirit of discernment. In the past, I have been naive about people. I’ve been too guarded with people that I should have let in and not guarded enough with people who meant me no good.
Help me to be a better judge of character. Reveal to me people’s heart and intentions when they enter my life. Allow me to distinguish the sheep from the wolves. I desperately need help in this area. Please hear my cry, Lord. Amen.
Father God I come to you during this season of intentional fasting and prayer to draw nearer to you. I desire to be closer to you and my hunger for YOU goes far beyond any physical hunger or thirst.
I seek to hear your voice and see glimpses of your vision for my life right now. Help me to be still and focused on you and our relationship. Intimacy with you will be my craving. In you, I will have spiritual fullness, greater than any food or drink can provide. Jesus’s body is my bread— and His blood is my drink. Help me, O Lord, to know that is enough. Amen.
