Prayer for Mark

Choose Chapter

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your word and the wonderful truth that it contains. Thank You that Jesus set aside His heavenly glory and took upon Himself the humble status of a Servant of all.. so that He could identify with our humanity and pay the price for our sin - a price that we are unable to pay. I pray that I may follow in His footsteps and live in humble submission to Your Holy Spirit all the days of my life, and only do those things that I hear from Your - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Source: Verse of the day for Mark 1:1

Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus. Thank You that He came to identify with sinners such as I, so that by faith in Him, I might be forgiven of my sins and clothed in His righteousness. Thank You that the Lord Jesus came to fulfil all righteousness, and lifted the curse of death, from all who would believe on His name. Thank You that He was obedient, in all things, even to death on the cross.. and thank You for the written word of God, which proclaims the end from the beginning. Help me to understand and apply all that You would teach me, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Prayer Against The Temptation To Return To My Addiction

Dear Lord, how I thank You for Your grace towards me for you have lifted me up out of the pit that my life was in and set my feet on the rock of my Salvation, which is Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour. Thank You for freeing me from the shame and sin of my addiction, which has robbed me of so many of years of my life and caused me to lose not only my home but many of my friends and family as well.

Lord Jesus there are those that would seek to entice me back into the shadow from which I escaped and are trying to almost blackmail me into returning back to my life of crime and debauchery – but I have been set free and I do not want to return – keep me from temptation on those occasions when I feel alone and protect me from the pressures that I have been put under on certain occasions to return.

Lord I know that ALL my past sins have been forgiven and that I am clothed in the righteousness of Christ Jesus – keep me walking in the path of holiness and protect me from those that are still slaves to their addictions – I pray Lord that You will rescue those of my friends that are still enthralled in the world of addiction – I ask this in Jesus name.

Amen

Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful way that Your truth is unfolded and Your word is fulfilled in holy Scripture. Thank You for the lessons that we can learn from people like John the Baptist, who faithfully fulfilled his calling, despite the cruel persecution he endured.

Help me to follow their good example and be faithful to my calling, and give me the grace to wait for Your perfect timing in my life - This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Prayer Accountability in a Christian Home

Loving Lord, You have placed us all in families and have, by Your own authority, established Your own statutes and laws. Thank You for placing us all in families and for my own family, in particular.

Thank You for the clarity with which You have taught us in Your word how that family that is seeking to do Your will, behaves… and the rolls that each of us holds within our own special family unit.

Thank You Lord, that You are our Father and have authorised the man of the home to take the place of authority, as the head of the family - just as You yourself are the Head of the family of God. May the men who are in this responsible role behave in a manner that is pleasing to You, by treating their wives with love and respect and their children with loving discipline and wise counsel. May they each become men after Your own heart as they assume their God-given role in their own homes.

May wives be gentle and gracious and willing to act in the crucial role of helper that You, Yourself have graciously placed them – may wives reflect the great love that Christ had for the Father and the sweet gentleness of the Holy Spirit – just as Jesus demonstrated these qualities in His own life… by submitting graciously to the Father’s will and desiring to do only those things that are pleasing to Him Give wives wisdom in the way that they behave towards their men-folk and may they grow in grace more and more as they walk in the steps of the lovely Lord Jesus Christ – Who was so full grace and truth.

Thank You for the heritage and gift of children, who we understand are a gift from God – a gift that has been lent from the Lord and a gift that You have graciously placed in so many families. And we pray that You would give all parents the grace and wisdom to teach and discipline their children in loving-kindness– and may the children themselves respect their parents and recognise the privilege they have in being part of a godly family unit. Loving Lord thank You for my family – and into YOUR hands I commit my family, from this day forward, even for evermore.

Amen

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your word and the beautiful examples of faith and love in the life of Mary Magdalene, and so many other disciples, that trusted Christ for the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting. Thank You that You died to pay the price for my sin and rose from the dead.. so that I too may rise into life immortal. Increase my love for You. Help me to hold fast to the faith.. and may I never forget what Jesus has done for me - not only in this age but in the ages to come. Thank You, in Jesus name, AMEN.

Prayer For My Grandma’s Bed Sores

Dear Lord Jesus, my dear grandmother has been confined to bed as she has lost the strength in her legs and is having to spend a lot of her time in bed or sitting in a chair… but Lord this has caused her to have some really bad bedsores on her back and Lord I know they are so painful, even though she does not complain about them.

Please Lord I ask that You would heal them.. Help us to find the right ointment so that they may be healed and give us wisdom as we try to look after her and keep her as comfortable as possible with these nasty bedsores..

I do thank You for my grandmother who is such a gentle lady and who has been such a wonderful encouragement to me as I have been growing up. Be close to her Lord, heal her Lord I pray and thank You for her life and witness.

Amen
“They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
