Praying through Genesis 17:1

Loving Father, I recognise Your almighty power and great glory, for the heavens declare its truth, and Christ proved it with outstretched arms on Calvary's Cross. But You are also my great Provider for which I thank You. Your gracious provision is All-sufficient and I long to serve You faithfully, and to live a blameless life before You. Lord, I know that living blamelessly before You is only possible as You provide the sufficient grace and power through the Holy Spirit's work within. Bring to fruitfulness the seed that You have planted in my heart, that I may live as You desire. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.”
(Genesis 17:1)

Praying through Genesis 17:5

Heavenly Father, as I read through the life of Abraham, I see how important it is to not only be saved by faith, but to live by faith, to walk by faith, and to pray in faith. And just as Abram had to learn many lessons as he sojourned in the land of Israel, I pray that as I journey through life, I would learn all that You have to teach me and become the person You have destined me to be. Help me to submit to You, resist the devil, and recognise the dangers of fleshly lusts and the wisdom of trusting Your Word. Thank You that You are working in my life from an eternal perspective. May my life be a testimony of Your goodness and grace. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.”
(Genesis 17:5)

Prayer For The Future Spouse Of My Grandchildren

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the lives of each of my lovely grandchildren that You have so graciously brought into my life. They all give me such joy and pleasure, for which I praise and thank You.

Lord, You have scheduled every day of their lives, and I pray that as they grow up into adulthood You would continue to lead and guide, to instruct and to correct. Father, I also pray that You would develop in each one a heavenly perspective and a true understanding of the Christian life and spiritual maturity, so that they grow in grace and in a right relationship with You.

Bring the right spouse into the life of each of these dear grandchildren of mine I pray. In Your grace I pray that they be granted the husband or wife of Your choice, so that together they may become a threefold cord with You, which is not easily broken.

Thank You, Lord so much, for every one of my grandchildren. Into Your hands I commit each one. May they sense Your calling on their lives, so that they develop into mighty men and women who love You deeply and trust in You implicitly. In Jesus' name I pray,


“And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.”
(Genesis 17:7)

The Blessing Of Our New Baby

Praise Your holy name for the blessing of our precious baby that You have so graciously given to us. You told us to be fruitful and multiply and I thank You that You have blessed me by making me fruitful. Truly, children are a blessed blessing from the Lord.

I remember reading that You blessed Sarah with Isaac and Hannah with her Samuel, and now in Your grace You have blessed me with my own precious blessing.

I bless Your name for ever and ever and pray that my little one in turn may be a blessing to You. Give me wisdom to bring up this little one to love and to trust You as their Saviour. Guard and guide, keep and protect us all in the days that lie ahead, as we wait for that Blessed hope, the glorious appearing of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray,


“And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.”
(Genesis 17:19)
