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.
