To Walk Close to Thee

O God, our Father, help us to see ourselves as children who seek guidance; children who walk in the midst of many dangers.

Help us not to be afraid so long as we walk close to Thee. Thy ways, O God are higher than our ways and often we do not understand. Teach us, O God, that we do not have to understand but to trust and Thou wilt see us through every difficulty in life.

When Thou art near, I am not afraid, I want to “draw nigh to God” in the assurance that when I do, He will “draw nigh unto me,”

In Jesus’ name,


“And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye went, until ye came into this place.”
(Deuteronomy 1:31)

Prayer For Rain In A Drought

Dear Lord, we are facing a sever drought and we plead with You to open the heavens and send rain on this dry and thirsty land. Lord we know that You are the one that sends the rain and You are the one that can withhold the rain, but we pray that You would look down in pity on our waterless land and send the rain to water the land, reviving the land and the people.

Lord we do not deserve You grace and mercy, for we have not loved and served You as we should – but You are long-suffering and of great goodness and You would send rivers of water over the vegetation and fill up the water-hold and well – for the earth is parched and we do not know what to do.

Lord for Your Holy Names sake we ask that You would send the rains in this land soon, for we have no hope but You – for You have promised to give rain upon the earth and send water on the fields – You have promised that the seasons will not fail and that the harvest will continue to provide their bounty – but without the life-giving water, we are going to have to face very severe consequences. In Your mercy send us rain in the dry and dusty land, we pray in Jesus name.


“That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.”

Prayer For Spiritual Accountability

Loving Lord I realise the importance of spiritual accountability in my own Christian life and pray that You would raise up godly men and women of faith, to whom to You should be accountable. Help me not to balk at the thought of accountability but rather to embrace it and learn all I can from the wise council of those that You place in my life. Lord I pray that together we would grow in grace and obtain wisdom in time of need.

Lord I pray that You would provide me with someone – perhaps even a prayer partner, where together we could enjoy fellowship, but also build us a relationship that enables us to be transparent in our Christian walk and sufficiently mature and sensitive enough to give guidance to each other for our mutual encouragement and reciprocal counsel.

Lord I know that the enemy as a roaring lion seeks to devour all those that do not hold themselves accountable to You – leaving them vulnerable to his evil attacks and spiritual discouragement. Help me Lord to be the person You would have me to be and give me humility of heart and a spirit of grace as I seek to do only those things that are righteous and appropriate in Your sight, in Jesus name I pray,

“The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.”
