Prayer for 1 Chronicles ►
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for my Mom and for all the love and patience that she has tirelessly given to me throughout my life. I am so grateful for her and although I don’t often show her how much I love her.. I do want to thank You with all my heart for blessing me with my dear mother.
Thank You for all the sacrifices that she has made for me on so many occasions and for the way that she never seems to think about her own needs, but always tries to do what is best for me.. and I am also very grateful for her faithful prayers for me, day by day.. for I know that they has been instrumental in keeping me steady on those occasions when I might have gone astray.
I pray Your special blessing on my Mom and ask that You would guard her and protect her with good health and fill her with Your comfort and joy - and may she grow ever closer to You in the days that lie ahead – this I ask in Jesus name
“And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.”

Heavenly Father, I bow my knee before You in prayer and praise. Lead and guide me today in all You say and do. May I walk in spirit and truth today and be sensitive to Your gentle guidance.
Help me I pray to fix my eyes on the Lord Jesus, knowing that without Him I will quickly stray from the path that is best for me. Lord I believe that You have scheduled every day of my life and I do not want to stray from the path that You would have me take.
Help me to be faithful to You and to willing go along the path of Your choosing, knowing that it may conflict with my own desires and wishes. Develop in me a heart that delights to do Your will so that the longings of my heart are brought into line with Your plans and purposes and Your will for my life.
Let my eyes always be looking to You and keep me from the looking at the storms and difficulties of life, knowing that You are with me to lead and guide and to uphold to Your praise and glory.
Thank You that Jesus is the Way and the Truth and the Life and I desire to do only that which is pleasing in Your site, in His name I pray,
“And inquired not of the LORD: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.”

Loving heavenly Father, You put us into families and set a father as the leader and role model for each family… but Lord there are many families that are being torn apart by a husband and father that has become addicted to alcohol.
Knowing the devastating nature of this disease, I pray that You would prompt each one to turn away from this evil habit to become the responsible husband and father that You desire each one to be.
Lord we know that there are many alcoholic husbands that abuse their wives both physically and emotionally and that many children are also placed in danger, due to abuse from an alcoholic father – and also Lord, that such drinking habits can often leave families with insufficient money to live on.
Protect all those that are vulnerable from all forms of abuse and convict such men of the responsibilities of being loving husbands and dependable fathers – and Lord we pray that they turn from their evil ways to turn to the Lord Jesus – knowing that only in You is true freedom found.
Thank You Father – I commit all families that are in this position into Your safe-keeping,
“Then the spirit came upon Amasai, who was
chief of the captains, and he said
, Thine are we
, David, and on thy side, thou son of Jesse: peace, peace be
unto thee, and peace be
to thine helpers; for thy God helpeth thee. Then David received them, and made them captains of the band.”

Heavenly Father how we rejoice in You for You are good and Your grace and mercy endures for ever. We give thanks to You and glory in Your holy name for Your glory reaches to the heavens and our hearts are filled with great gladness and joy. Thank You for sending Jesus to pay the price for our sins. Thank You that He is with us every moment of the day and thank You that He is coming again with great glory and majesty - and we worship and praise Your holy name for all Your goodness to us and all men - in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
“Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.”
I confess that I have not only hurt other people, and especially those that are close to me – but I have offended You and ignored some of the warnings that I believe were directly or indirectly sent from You. Help me I pray to break free of this ungodly addiction and get on the road to recovery.
Forgive me Lord I pray me for I have sinned against You and ignored the clear teaching of Your Word to live soberly, righteously and in the fear of the Lord and to walk circumspectly before You, as a child of the light. But I come to You in humble submission to ask You to help me to get on the road to addiction recovery, for I know that You have promised to lift-up all who come to You out of the miry pit – even when we have foolishly dug it for ourselves.
Help me be set free from alcohol.. putting on the breastplate of righteousness, and grace, and for helmet – the hope of salvation in Christ , in Whose name I pray,
“Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.”

Praise Your name O Lord most high. I glory at your wonderful creative power, but I wonder more at the amazing grace that You have shown to me in dying for me on Calvary’s cross, and pray that You will use me to tell out the glories of Your name in the place where You have planted me, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
“Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men
say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.”
Dear Lord, what great hope and mystery surrounds this lovely time of the year when the body of Christ specially remember the first advent of our Lord Jesus with such anticipation – that wonderful time when You came into the world, so many years ago, as the King of Israel and Saviour of the world.
Lord we know that it is not Your will that anyone should perish but that all should come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Who alone can save a dying world, that is lost in trespasses and sins.
Open the eyes and the hearts of those that are lost in their sins and blinded to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ. Visit those we pray who have not yet accepted the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Convict those who have their attention fixed on the temporal things that are passing away….. Lord at this time of Advent when the people of the world are so busy in making preparation for a secular Christmas, we ask You to convict many hearts of their real need of Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
Bring many we pray to a deeper understanding of the real meaning of Advent and Christmas, Help them to come to and realise that this is a time of hope, as we remember when the eternal God became the prefect Man – and was born as a baby to die on a cross for the sin of the world. Help them to understand that He lived His life in the shadow of the cross, so that sinful man could be forgiven - by simply believing on His name. Look down in pity on all who do not know the Lord Jesus as Saviour, in Whose name we pray,
“And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and
glory in thy praise.”

Loving heavenly Father You have been with me in good times and in the bad times and I lift my hands up to You in gratitude for my home and for the family, into which You have so lovingly placed me.
You Lord have filled our home with so many blessings – and even when times have been tough and the circumstances of life have been very difficult, You have blessed me with such a loving family - which is becoming more and more of a blessing with each passing day – How I thank You Lord Jesus and bless Your holy name.
Thank You Lord for my parents, who have been so supportive of me -not only in my early years but also as I have grown older. I pray Your blessing on both of them and also on the wider family too – my aunts and uncles – brothers and sisters – nephews, nieces, cousins and grandparents – all of whom have been a blessing in their own special way.
I specially thank You for my spouse and the joy of seeing our own children born into the world and growing up into responsible adults – oh and Lord for the miracle of seeing the birth of my own precious grandchildren. What a joy this has been and how I praise You for all Your goodness and mercy to me.
And Lord thank You for all those who are in the wider body of Christ, – my brothers and sisters around the world, that have become such and important part of my eternal family. Thank You for the wonderful joy of knowing that we will all be united with You in love in heavenly places in the days to come, when we are given our glorified bodies in the eternal state. There are no words that are sufficient to express the gratitude I have that You are my Father –my Brother - my Lover – my Friend, in Jesus name I pray,
“And David the king came and sat before the LORD, and said, Who am
I, O LORD God, and what is
mine house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?”

Lord, give me the purity, integrity and focus to be the kind of vessel You would desire.
“Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God; arise therefore, and build ye the sanctuary of the LORD God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and the holy vessels of God, into the house that is to be built to the name of the LORD.”

Father, we worship and praise You for the greatness, power, splendour, glory, and majesty are Yours alone. May You be greatly honoured for You are Head over all things and Judge of all men. Thank You for all You have done to redeem my life and for bringing me into Your everlasting kingdom. May I never become too familiar with Who it was that hung on the cross for love of me, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
“Thine, O LORD, is
the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is
in the heaven and in the earth is thine
; thine is
the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.”
Heavenly Father thank You for the opportunity for us to once again examine our hearts during this lovely time of Advent, and the faith in Christ Jesus that we confess.
Keep our hearts aglow with love for Jesus and help to wonder more and more about amazing the grace that You have shown towards sinful man, in sending Your only begotten Son to come to earth, as a tiny human baby - so that He could bear the punishment for the sins of the whole world on His holy shoulders.
It never ceases to amaze us that Christ Jesus should set aside His heavenly glory and be conceived of the Holy Spirit by the virgin Mary, birthed into the human family as the promised Seed of the woman and be worshipped as a tiny baby in a humble stable at Bethlehem, by simple shepherds and singing angels alike.
It was Love incarnate that visited the earth so many years ago and that same love that saved us from our sins and came to dwell within the hearts of all that trust in Jesus as Saviour. Heavenly Father, accept our grateful sacrifice of praise – and may we come to know You more and love You better in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name we pray,
“O LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers, keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people, and prepare their heart unto thee:”
