Prayer for Job 1

Choose Verse

Heavenly Father, we bless and thank You for the many lessons we can learn from the book of Job. Like so many before me I too have misrepresented Your grace and favour toward mankind, through my own lack of understanding and limited perception. Thank You for Your goodness and grace; Your forbearance and mercy; Your wisdom and strength and Your kindness and favour toward us all. Thank You that You commended Your love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, the Lord Jesus Christ died for us. Thank You for not giving us what we deserve but instead.. giving us what we do not deserve. Help me to come to a deeper knowledge and understanding of Who You are and help me to live my life in a way that honours You - in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN. 

“There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.”
(Job 1:1)

Heavenly Father, thank You for this peep into the spiritual realm. Thank You that the rule of sin and Satan, over Your beautiful earth, will soon be over. We praise You.. that despite Adam and Eve's sin, the abdication of their responsibility and the relinquishment of man's dominion over the earth to Satan... that by Your grace, You sent the Lord Jesus to pay the price for our sin, and redeem us from a lost eternity. Thank You that by grace through faith in Him we are forgiven of our sin, and have been translated into the kingdom of Your dear Son. Help me to live for Him during my time on earth, no matter what pain and suffering I may be called upon to go through - thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.

“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.”

Prayer Of Gratitude For Mothers

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 said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”
(Job 1:21)
