Praying through Genesis 2:1

Heavenly Father, what a wonderful Creator You are Who formed the heavens and the earth and all the hosts of heaven and earth, in six spectacular days of Your creative power. I praise You for the glory of the heavens and the beauty of the earth and thank You that You made man in Your own image and likeness to have dominion over all that You had made. Thank You, Father, that despite the fall of man and our sinful nature, You purposed to redeem us, return us into fellowship with Yourself, and re-establish man’s rule on earth through the shed blood of our God and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Thank You that Jesus is the perfect Man Who will rule the earth in righteousness. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.”

Praying through Genesis 2:2

Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful pictures of creation in the early chapters of Genesis, where I discover that Your plans and purposes for mankind will reach their final destination, when Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. Thank You for the many lessons I can learn from Your Sabbath rest and that following Your day of rest, You began to work on Your new creation. Thank You that I am part of that new creation in Christ, that Jesus is my Sabbath rest, and that one day we will rule and reign with Him in His kingdom of perfect peace. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

In Jesus' name, AMEN.

Praying through Genesis 2:15

Heavenly Father, what amazing grace that Jesus would choose to come to earth to die on my account, so that I no longer remain under condemnation as a sinner, but am identified with Him and clothed in His righteousness. Thank You that You did not leave us in eternal condemnation, through Adam's sin, but purposed to redeem us with Christ's precious blood. I pray that I may live in willing obedience and thankful submission to Your leading and guidance, and thank You that in Christ I have eternal life, and will one day eat of the Tree of Life. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

Praying through Genesis 2:17

Heavenly Father, thank You that You laid out these clear instructions in the Garden of Eden so that we could understand the end from the beginning. Thank You that the Lord Jesus Christ came to be the perfect sin-sacrifice for mankind, to die on the Cross as payment for Adam’s sin and the accumulated sins of humanity. Thank You that for believers, to live is Christ and to die is gain, because we will gain eternal life and joy without end with Him in heaven. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Healing Prayer For A Lonely Person

Oh Lord, I am ill and feel frightened and alone as I have no one to care for me. I have no one who is really interested in me at all, and I feel lost and alone and so vulnerable. And now Lord Jesus, I have come down with this sickness and I feel so ill. Lord, I ask You please to make me well again soon, and lift up my sagging spirit, I pray.

I know Lord in my heart that I am not alone, because You are with me, which is the real reason that I am praying to You now, because You promised to be with me and never to leave me or forsake me, even when everyone else does. Be with me now I pray, and reach out Your healing hand of blessing and touch me Lord. Please make me feel better, not only in my body but also in my life, I pray.

Thank You, that I can call on You in times of trouble or illness or loneliness, and know that You are always there to hear and answer, to heal and comfort and help. Lord, I pray that You would help me to really apply this truth in my life, not just when I am sick, but every day. 


“And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”
(Genesis 2:18)

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,


“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
(Genesis 2:24)
