Loving Lord, there is so much happening in my life at the moment. Changes seems to be taking place in every area of my life – friends and neighbours have moved far away, my loved ones have passed on, tensions seems to be surrounding me on every side – but my hope and trust is in You.
As I step out into the future in the face of all the changes and challenges that are taking place all around me, I pray that You will continue to be with me to lead and to guide - to help and to protect – to comfort and support. Lord I cling to You for You are the Rock of my Salvation , my Defence and my Defender.
Thank You Lord that in this world of flux and change You are the same yesterday, today and for ever. Thank You that You are with me in all the changing scenes and situations of my life and thank You that YOU are coming back soon, to take all who trust in Your name to be with You forever. – I cling to You Lord for my hope and my future is in You alone, in Jesus name I pray,
Lord I had such dreams of the future when I was a little younger, and had made such wonderful plans for my life – and my family, but now Lord with the economic crises and all that is going on around our world today, which seems to want to smash down what is left of the Judeo Christian standards - the future looks so very bleak …
But I thank You for the reminder that You have given me from my pastor and what I have learned from my own bible studies - that this world is not our home, but just a place and that we are simply passing through on our way to our heavenly residence – which You have prepared for us in heaven.
What I wonderful future You have planned for all Your children.. and I realise that as the days get darker and the world seems to become more evil that You are using this to cause Your children to break free from the hold that this world has on so many of us –
Lord thank You for reminding me that I am not to become too comfortable in this world but to prepare my heart for the time that we will be with You in heaven. Keep my family and me in this increasingly bleak economic world and provide for all our needs while we are here and bring us home SOON to our heavenly home , where we will be for ever with You, in Jesus name I pray,
Lord I just want to lay my life and my future career at Your feet and ask that Your grace and favour would rest upon me, as I earnestly seek Your guidance– praying that You would establish the work of my hand and lead me in the direction that You would have me to go.
Direct me I pray into the career path that You have chosen for me, for I desire to be in the center of Your will.. and I pray that You would open the right doors through which You would have me go - and keep those places that You would not have to go, firmly closed
Lord, I ask that You would give me godly insight and wisdom in these important career choices that I need to make. Lead me along the way that You have prepared for me, for I know that You have scheduled every day of my life and I do want to follow that path that You have planned for me, and not deviate from it – and I pray that You would also equip me with the skills and qualifications that are needed. May my life and my career be used to Your praise and glory and this I ask in Jesus name,
Dear heavenly Father, today I come to Your throne of grace to pray for the next generation of young people,- that You would protect those that know You as their Saviour from being negatively influenced by the unbiblical worldview that is flooding our schools and colleges today, and also for those young people that have not yet trusted You as their Saviour – or who have become disillusioned with their life, and without hope in the world
Father skepticism and relativism seems to be flooding the into the educating system and causing many young people to become confused about their faith and to walk away from what they once held dear.. Stem to flood-tide of secular humanism and the various ungodly philosophies that are sweeping through the nation we pray, and reveal Yourself to a generation that has strayed so far from the truth of Your Word.
Forgive us Lord that as individuals and as a nation we have strayed so far from Your precepts and have allowed a generation to be born that has little knowledge or understanding about Your glorious plan of salvation and the glorious gospel of grace. In Your mercy move we pray in this generation and halt the cultural tide that has undermined our roots and cause us to become disconnected from You the only source of life and light and move we pray to turn the next generation into men and women that turn back to the God who created them and sent His only begotten Son to die for their sins – this we ask in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are my God and Saviour and that You have scheduled every day of my life and are teaching me so gently to be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication (with thanksgiving), to make the longings of my heart known to You. Lord.
Lord, You know the desire deep within my heart – that You bring that precious partner to me, with whom I may spend my life. I pray that You would bring the right man to me.. to be my future husband - that special one with whom I may spend my future - and pray that You would bring him to me – at the right time and in the right way.
Lord I don’t know what You have planned for my future, but I do know that Your plans and purposes for me are so much better than my own – and that You already know what tomorrow holds.. and You know the man whom You have prepared to be that special person in my life.
I pray that You would prepare us both mentally, spiritual, emotionally and physically for the time when You bring us together in loving union. Fulfill my heart desire I pray and I will give You all the praise and glory, in Jesus name,
Loving Lord, we thank You for the heritage and gift of children and recognize that among today’s young people we have those who will become future leaders, teachers and pioneers – and who may one day become influential in forging the future direction of our society and take up the responsibilities for leading families, nations and the church into the future.
Lord we pray that they may be endowed with wisdom and grow up in the fear and nurture of the Lord... Direct and govern their steps we pray, and may they find favor with God and man - being grounded in integrity and honesty, wisdom and grace.
We pray that they may walk in righteousness and truth.. humility and grace and seek to live in peace with all men - without compromise and without prejudice. May they keep the Word of God as their protective shield and be guarded against the lies, deceit and envy of fallen man.
Guard and guide those that will become societies future leaders, teachers and pioneers and may they hold fast to that which is good, live in peace with one another - admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone - never repaying evil for evil, but always seeking after that which is good for one another -and to Your praise and glory, this we ask in Jesus name,
Loving Lord, You are our hope and our strength in time of trouble – You are our ever present help in this difficult world and Lord I know that You hold the future in the palm of Your hands and I trust You.
Thank You that You are always there to provide for my needs and protect me from the storms of life…and I pray that no matter what the future holds – that You will remain there beside me. I know Lord that no matter how difficult things become in this world that You have promised never to leave me nor forsake me – but I also know that in this world we will have tribulation and trials – and I pray that You will be with me through all that I face in the future.
You are my hope and You are my strength and I thank You that You have promised that that no matter how difficult life becomes Your grace is sufficient for all my needs. Help me to rely on You no matter what problems and difficulties arise – for my hope is in You,
Dear heavenly Father thank You for all that You have provided for me in a time when the future looks so bleak. Let me never forget that my citizenship is in heaven and that no matter what happens in my life while I remain on earth - YOU are in control and You have promised to care for all Your children.
Help me to live my life in a manner that is pleasing to You in this ever changing world and help me not to put my hope and trust in the leaders of this world nor the things of this world that are passing away but may I always remember that my hope is built on nothing less that JESUS and His righteousness.. for which I praise and thank You Lord.
Thank You Father that You know the end from the beginning and that You are truly in control of all that happens. Not only in our lives but in every corner of the world. Guide, protect and supply for the needs of all Your children and thank You Father that we DO know that our future is secure in You – no matter what may take place in the world.. Praise Your name and thank You for Your loving kindness,
Lord, thank You for bringing me into Your family and that I have been taught Who You are, Lord Jesus. Thank You that You sought me out and saved me. Thank You that Your banner over me is love and thank You for all the many blessings and opportunities that You have provided for me in my life so far–
Be with me Lord as I face an unknown future I pray. Teach me more of Yourself and give me an opportunity in my life to serve You – in whatever place or work You call me.
Lead me and guide me into all truth I pray and as I face all my tomorrows Lord, I want to ask that You would show me more of Yourself… that I may know more of You – that I may know Christ. This was the prayer that Paul the apostle prayed at the end of his life and Lord - I want to pray this at the start of my life as well…
Give me a teachable spirit and as the future opens up for me –keep me from the ways of the world but help me to cling ever closer to You I pray, in Jesus name,
