Prayer for Today

God is faithful

October 1, 2015

Father God, I often pray the part of the Lord’s Prayer that says, “Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” without thinking about what I’m really saying. Today I am asking for Your will to be done in my life.

Father, You know what good, right and is perfect for me because every good and perfect gift comes from You. You know exactly what I need and when I need it. You know how to show Your strength, power and righteousness through my life. Today I commit to submitting to Your overarching authority over my life and I permit You to have Your perfect way in me.

Lord, when my flesh starts to scream because it is uncomfortable, comfort me by Your Holy Spirit. Father, I’ve been praying for (fill in whatever you’ve been praying for. Some examples: a closer walk with God, a healthier lifestyle, a mate, a change of heart, a financial blessing, your children, deliverance from past pains, etc.) ___________________________________________________ and I know the first step to moving forward in this is for Your will to be done in my life.

I will not listen to unwise council. I will keep my eyes steadfast and fix on You because You are the author, the perfecter and the finisher of my faith.

In Jesus name I pray.  Amen.

Prayer for Today

Man with bills

 

August 6, 2016

Father, I know so many people who are suffering financially right now. I know for some people their financial problems are their own making; over spending, using their credit cards without a plan or a thought and being a glutton when it comes to material things.

For others Lord, their financial problems came about because of loss of job, downsized salary, college for their children, or maybe for themselves, divorce or illness. No matter the reason for the financial stress and stretch they find themselves in, I pray that You will deliver them out of everyone.

We know when we go after money rather than coming after You, and Your will for our lives, we show a love of money, which is the root of all evil. This is because we know that You will supply all our needs according to the riches of Your glory in Jesus Christ. We know that Your word says that money answers all things, but we are to seek Your kingdom first, and everything else we need will be added to us.

Father, in the midst of the financial pressures that Your people are experiencing, please help us stay focused on You and Your will for our lives. Our hope is in You. We need You to be true to Your word and provide us as only You can. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
