Before I begin with this post, I really want to thank The Lord for this opportunity and desire He has placed in my heart and it is my prayer that He brings to an expected end what He has begun in me.
Ever felt like you really needed to be prayed for? There have been countless times in my life when I needed a hand in prayer. And it is absolutely okay to feel that way. I find it really comforting that the bible tells us that Jesus sits at the right hand of The Father and is interceding for us. Even the Lord knows that there are times we are in need of prayer. Right now though, the Lord placed it on my heart to put this prayer out here. I initially prepared a post on faith but The Lord asked me to do this instead so, it is exactly what I am going to do.
”And this is the confidence that we have toward Him; that if we ask anything according to His will He hears Us” 1 John 5:14
And so heavenly father, I lift everyone here before your throne, presenting them blameless and righteous in your sight. Lord, you know our needs even before we ask and so I ask that you search every heart and grant the desires of our hearts according to Your will. In dark places where it seems the light will never shine, teach us Lord to rely on your word which is a light to our path. For the many times we have prayed and not received answers, Lord help us trust in your timing because your ways are not our ways neither are your thoughts our thoughts. In the midst of it all, teach us to acknowledge You. It is in that, that our paths are made straight.
For families Lord, I ask for your protection and covering against all the plans and schemes of the enemy. Like you did for Job, set a hedge of fire around our families and remind us by Your spirit to give You thanks in every situation we find ourselves.
For young adults struggling with their academics, I ask Lord for Your grace and an excellent spirit just like you gave Daniel. Father sharpen our intellects and give us the strength to stay focused. May we not stray from our purpose and calling. I stand in the Blood Of Christ and abort all the works of the devil against our God-given purpose and I ask Lord, that You plunge each one of us into the fullness of our destiny. In the name of Jesus, may every destructive path and door in our lives be closed.
For marriages Lord, I pray that you keep and preserve by Your mighty hand. Our help only comes from You and so we ask that You lead us by Your Spirit to make right decisions and put to death the voice of our flesh. And when we have nowhere to run to, Lord capture us in Your love. May we run to Your name in times of trouble for it is in it that we are saved. When the enemy comes in like a flood, lift up a standard against Him Lord. I speak peace, hope, love and joy into every marriage as You restore all the years that the locust may have destroyed in Jesus name.
In every area of our lives, we surrender our will to Yours Lord. All of our plans, hopes and ambitions, we surrender to Your will for it is only in Your will that we are free. And so we subject our spirits to total obedience to Your word. In areas we struggle to make decisions Lord, help us depend completely on your spirit and not our friends or counsellors or pastors. There is no better counsellor than Your Spirit. He is Never wrong, or nearly right.
For every heart that has a burning desire to Live for your name, I ask heavenly father that you lead us on by Your spirit to follow hard after you. For habits we are struggling to break, Lord intervene and give us your strength in exchange for our weakness.
Thank You Lord for being faithful in times when we have been faithless. For restoring back to us everything that the enemy stole from us. For being our all-sufficient provider in times of lack. For healing our sicknesses and diseases Lord. In our little, we give You thanks and even when we have more than enough we bless Your name. We completely believe and trust in Your name Lord and for the one who does not know you personally, reveal yourself in a special way only You can.
This really is the confidence we have in You; that when we ask anything in Your name, You hear us. Be glorified in our lives heavenly father now and always. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen!!
Here’s a verse you can meditate on;
”Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours”. Mark 11:24.
