Prayer for Mark 9

Choose Verse

Heavenly Father, words cannot describe the thanksgiving and praise I have for sending Your only begotten Son to be the substitite my sin. No one but God made flesh, was good enough to have paid the price for sin, and without His glorious resurrection from the dead, we would remain dead in our sin and without hope in the world. Yet You purposed in Your heart that He would pay the price for my sin, through the sacrifice of His deathless life - for as the eternal son of God death could not hold Him, and as the sinless Son of Man death had no claim on His sinless life. How I praise You that He is the First-fruit from the dead and His unique resurrection has paved the way for all who believe on Him to rise into life immortal - to Him be all praise and glory, world without end - AMEN.

“And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.”
(Mark 9:10)

Healing For My Long Time Illness

Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for being with me through all the ups and downs of my life and for the many blessings that You have given me for which I praise and thank You.

Lord – You know the illness that I have been struggling with for a long time now and that there is little that seems to be able to be done by the medical profession - but Lord I believe that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and that You know every part of my body - and You know exactly why I have been ill for so long. Lord, I come to You now asking that You would work a full recovery in my body – whatever is causing this persistent problem - and I pray that You would, in Your mercy give me back the health and strength I need…

Lord if there is anything that is lacking in my diet or anything that is causing this ongoing problem within my body – I pray that You would show me so that it may be finally dealt with – Restore again my health and strength I pray and guide me along the path that You have planned for me, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen
“And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.”
(Mark 9:21)

Heavenly Father, thank You for the lessons we can learn from the man, who cried out to the Lord Jesus for help, and was reminded that, 'all things are possible to him who believes'. May I never forget that You are the same yesterday, today and forever and that Your power to heal and help in every situation, is as sure today as it was when You healed the sick and turned water into wine. Thank You that by grace through faith in Jesus I can come to the throne of grace for mercy to find help in time of need. Keep me from doubting Your word; increase my faith in the days ahead and prevent me from being adversely influence by the mountainous situations I seem to be facing and the difficulties and dangers that are looming ahead. Lord I do believe - increase my love and trust for You - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”

Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times when my trust in You has been overshadowed by foolish doubt and my spiritual walk has strayed from the paths of righteousness, truth and wisdom. Help my to fulfill the work that you have prepared for me to do, in the power of Your Holy Spirit - to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for this warning to eschew all that is evil and sinful from my life. I pray that I may do only those things that honour Your name. Lord, I know that in my own strength my fleshly works will be burnt-up like filthy rags in Your holy presence, but I thank You that You have prepared good, spiritual works for me to do, which will stand the test of Your purifying fires, when carried out in the power of Your Holy Spirit and through Your sufficient grace. May I live and work to Your praise and only do those things that are righteous in Your sight and for the honour of Your holy name – this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:”
