Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word of truth and for giving me a clear understating of the Biblical foundation of the creation of the world, through a plain reading of Genesis. We pray for those that have been blinded to the truth by the enemy of our soul.. and pray that in Your goodness and grace, many will recognise the error of humanistic philosophies; liberal theology and false religious systems and be convicted of sin and righteousness and judgement so that together with us they may be saved by grace through faith in Christ - to His honour and glory, AMEN.

Christian’s Prayer To Quit Smoking

Father I come to You in the Name of Jesus, my Saviour and I thank You that HE died to pay the price for my sins and to set me free from the power of sin and death. Lord I particularly come to You today to seek Your face on this habit of smoking - a long-time habit that I have found so difficult to break.

Lord, I know that I am not condemned because of my smoking – nevertheless it is a habit that I truly want to break and have come to You to pray that You would give me Your grace and strength to help in this time of my need..

Lord, Your word says that I can do all things through Christ Who gives me the strength and I pray that You would indeed give me the strength to completely stop smoking and also to remove the desire that I have to light up. Lord I know that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit and do not want this habit to be a master over my body and my will – but rather I want You alone to have first place in my life and within my body.

Give me the grace I pray to enable me to stop this habit completely, and to have the desire to smoke eliminated from me – and I will give You all the praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen

Prayer To Return Into Fellowship With God

O God be gracious to me and bless me and make the light of Your face shine on me and draw me back into Your loving arms.. Lord I have wandered far from You, and have been chasing after the things that are of little importance… and in so doing I have left my First Love – I have wandered far from You Lord Jesus, I want to return into Your loving arms.

I have been remembering the beautiful fellowship we enjoyed together when I first was born again and am coming to You Lord now, to confess my neglect – to admit my fault in wandering far from You, in order to experience a few paltry pleasures of the world. But they have left a bitter taste in my mouth and I long to rest in Your love once again, to breathe in the refreshing air of Your grace and to return into the loving arms of Jesus.

So be gracious to me Lord, and may the light of Your face shine on me once more, in Jesus name I pray. In Your grace I come to You in humbleness of heart and pray that we may return into the sweet fellowship we once enjoyed – Thank You Lord that you are a God Whose greatest desire is to reconcile sinners back into Your loving arms,

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.

Amen

Increase my trust in Your Word of truth, and may my life become a witness to Your never-failing faithfulness. May I continue to grow in grace and mature in the faith.. and may I count it all joy when I am called to suffer for righteousness sake, for Your greater glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.”
(Genesis 22:2)

Loving Father I thank You for Abraham’s example of trusting faith and faithful obedience and ask that whatever tests and trial I may have to face, that like him I will be quick to obey Your leading, knowing that Your eternal purposes are wider than my limited perspective, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.”
(Genesis 22:3)

Heavenly Father, thank You for using this beautiful picture of Abraham and Isaac, as such an astonishing foreshadowing of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection, after three days. Thank You that He paid the price for SIN.. for MY sin – for ALL sin, and thank You that Jesus gave His life willingly, as a freewill offering – that He was given by the Father and was ready to offer His life, for the love of such as me. Thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.

“And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.”
(Genesis 22:6)

Heavenly Father, thank You for painting so many pictures of Christ in the Old Testament and for lives like Abraham and Isaac, who so clearly represent element of what Father and Son together endured, to take away my sin. Thank You for giving Your life as the ransom price for my soul and I pray that I would increasingly come to an understanding of what it cost for You to pay for my sin. THANK YOU in Jesus name, AMEN

“And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”
(Genesis 22:7)

What a wonderful God You are, and I praise Your holy name for all Your goodness and loving kindness to me and all people by sending Your only begotten Son to take the punishment that I deserve. Continue to provide for my daily needs, my Father and in Your graciousness provide for all Your children, according to Your Own promise - Yahweh-Yireh, the Lord will provide, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.”
(Genesis 22:14)

Prayer Of Comfort for the Grieving

Lord Jesus I know that You are close to those that are broken-hearted and grieving in their soul and that You rescue those that are crushed in spirit. Draw near to Your many children who are facing times of sadness and loss and draw each one ever closer into Your precious arms of love and support.

Thank You that You are wonderfully good to all who wait for You and seek You, and I pray that those of my brothers and sisters in Christ who, – for whatever reason – are facing times of grief and hardship in their lives - that in Your grace and mercy You would draw very close to each one and gently carry them on Your shoulders, as a Shepherd carries a little lamb that has been torn by the briars.

Be close to all that are grieving today I pray, and flood their souls with hope – knowing that underneath are Your everlasting arms.

Give me a heart that is sensitive to those that are grieving, the wisdom to know when to speak words of comfort or when to keep silent. And Lord I also pray that You would use my life to be a channel of encouragement and hope, through whom the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ will flow into their hearts – to heal and help.

Thank You Lord that You are a God that answers prayers. Amen
“And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.”
(Genesis 37:35)

Prayer for Personal Accountability

Lord Jesus it says in Your Word, examine Yourself to see it you are in the faith – Lord I realise that this is not talking to unbelievers but to all of us who are Your children, in Christ Jesus. Lord help me to examine myself, and all that I am, and all that I am learning from You and Your word, so that I truly may say with conviction :-I know in Whom I have believed and am walking in the path on which He has placed me.

Keep me also from critical thoughts of others, and prevent me Lord, from having a spirit of control – or by pretending to hold others accountable to You when the beam in my own eye is greater than the speck that is in my brothers’ eyes.

Keep me humble before Your throng of grace and may I walk the way of the cross day be day - with the Spirit as my teacher and the Word of God washing me clean. Thank You for all my Christian friends and brothers and keep us all walking close to You in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen
“I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him: if I bring him not unto thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear the blame for ever:”
(Genesis 43:9)
