Heavenly Father , Your are good and righteous altogether and I come to You today, confessing that I have not lived my life the way that You would have wanted, nor did I choose the path that You would have wished for me to take.
I confess my lack and come to You in humility of spirit, knowing that in Your loving-kindness You forgive those that are of a contrite heart. Father I want to turn my life around and live in a way that is transparent before You – a godly life that is pleasing to You and a life that brings glory to Your name. Lord I do not want to grieve or quench the work of the Holy Spirit in my life any more, and know that the only way to please You is to walk in spirit and truth, and to live each day in submission to Your guidance, and empowered by Your grace.
Cleanse my heart of sin; forgive my stupidity and teach me Your ways I pray. Lord I want to change my behaviour to reflect those of the Lord Jesus and I want the thoughts of my mind to be pleasing in Your sight. Lord I want to be a person of integrity and live a life that is godly and full of grace – and I can only do so as I abide in You and rest in Your love – but teach me Your ways and give me a teachable spirit so that in the days to come I may live godly in Christ Jesus, knowing that this is Your will for my life.
Thank You that You have been faithful to me even when I proved unfaithful but in Your grace I step out into the future with my hand in Yours, in Jesus name I pray,
Dear Lord Jesus – You were the one Who said let the children come to me for of such is the kingdom of heaven.. I thank You for my children and the way that they are learning about You in their daily lives and ask that in Your grace they may grow in wisdom and integrity and understand the importance of honesty and truth.
Give me wisdom as I teach and train them so that they learn to make the right choices and to grow closer to You each day. Lord You promised that if we bring up a child in the way they should go then when they are older they will not depart from it – help me to lay a good, firm spiritual foundation based on correct scriptural principles in their lives. Give me wisdom as I correct them, and keep me from expecting behaviours from them that I do not fully comply with in my own life.
Lord I pray that they come to a true understanding of biblical standards and godly values – and that they learn to quickly acknowledge their faults while knowing that it is by Your grace that they are forgiven and by Your grace that they may grow to be more like the Lord Jesus.
Guide them into truth and I ask that they may come to know and love You more and more Whom to know is life eternal. Help them to develop truth in the inward parts and realise the importance of integrity and honesty in all they say and do. Lord I give my children over to You and pray that You would equip me to furnish them with all they need to grow into godly men and women, in Jesus name I pray,
Loving Lord I kneel humbly before You seeking Your grace and guidance for my future life and witness. Times have become increasingly difficult, but You are my Lord and Saviour and I only want to do that which is pleasing to You and honouring to Your name.
Give me I pray patience and perseverance, insight and integrity in my work environment and business dealings, knowing that this world is a place that is increasingly discarding the unchangeable principles of Scripture and the godly traits of honesty, sincerity and integrity. But Lord I pray that I may maintain all that is good and righteous in my position of employment and not compromise the standard that You desire for my life.
Give me wisdom as I face the daily challenges in my place of occupation and I pray that I may conduct all my activities with honesty, integrity and fairness. I pray Your blessing on all I do and may my life and witness be such that You are not discredited, but rather that Your name may be glorified in all I do, in Jesus name I pray,
Dear heavenly Father, thank You for my dear husband and the life that we have together – but although he desires to uphold Your perfect standard in his life, in the power of the Holy Spirit, the pressures at work and the ways of the world often cause him to falter – sometimes causing him to compromise what he knows is Your will in his life.
Lord I pray that You would give him the strength, the grace and the wisdom to stand-up for what he knows is right, and maintain his integrity in the world of work, even when others weaken or succumb to the ways of this world system.
Convict him Lord I pray, to do what is righteous in Your sight and help him to do what is good and profitable for his eternal soul, and to apply it in his own walk and life. Give him a teachable spirit and a willingness to listen to Your gentle promptings in his heart so that he lives in a way that honours You.
Give me a teachable spirit too I pray and keep me Lord from being critical… but rather give me the wisdom and patience to live as a godly wife in genuine, biblical submission to him, as You desire - and I pray that we may grow together in grace and demonstrate in all areas of our lives the wisdom and integrity that only comes from abiding in the Lord Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
Loving Father thank You for Christ Jesus our Lord Who was the perfect example of a man with a godly character and integrity of spirit. Lord I long to be more like Jesus in all my actions and attitudes and pray that You would guard my heart; strengthen my character; teach me Your ways; uphold me with Your righteous right hand and develop in me the grace and integrity that only comes from being in Christ.
Help me to be true to Your word and righteous in all my doings and enable me to conquer the temptations, tests and trial that will inevitably come my way, in a manner that is pleasing to You. Help me to be diligent in my work; faithful in my witness; helpful to those with whom I come in contact and be ready to wait on You for Your right timing and for Your best direction.
Give me I pray more of Your grace so that I may speak the truth in love. Enable me to grow in sincerity and wisdom and in the light of Your perfect love, search out any dark area in my heart that needs to be cut away or pruned back, so that I may be fruitful in Your service, grow in grace and be increasingly conformed into the image of the Lord Jesus Christ – in Whose name I pray,
