Loving Lord and heavenly Father, how I thank You for The holy Scriptures and the truth within its pages. Thank You for the opportunity to spend time in Your Word and I pray that You would prepare my heart for this time of Bible study.
Help me to set my mind on things above and not on earthly things. Keep away all that would distract me from Your word and develop in me a teachable spirit and ears that listen to Your still small voice - and I pray that the eyes of my heart be open to see all that You want to teach me.
I pray that I may study to show myself approved unto God. Give me insight and understanding as I read and reflect on Your Word and may I mature in the faith, grow in grace and come to a deeper knowledge of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through this time of Bible study – this I ask in Jesus name,
Dear Lord Jesus, I pray that as I settle down to do my studies today that You would help me to collect the thoughts of my mind.. so that I may become really focussed on my work and complete all that needs to be covered today.
Give me a focussed mind, help me to make the best use of the time today and keep me from the many distractions that too often divert my attention away from this important study.
Lord You know that I have an exam coming up in the not to distant future and I pray that You would give me the grace to learn my studies, and to retain what I have learned. Give me an understanding mind and help me to concentrate so that I may retain and apply the knowledge that I am gaining. Thank You Lord for in Jesus' name I pray,
Loving Lord, I thank You for my life and give You grateful praise for Your great goodness and abundant mercy, which is new every morning.

I pray that Your perfect peace would guard my heart and that You would provide me with a quite focus and calm tranquillity within my soul. Guard my mind and guide my thoughts I pray.. and prevent me from worrying about what may or may not happen.. instead of keeping the eyes of my heart focussed upon Jesus and my ears ever open to His leading and guidance.
Give me strength to face all the eventualities of life in the sure knowledge that Your grace is sufficient for all my need. Help me to keep my eyes looking to Jesus in a calm and quite confidence, knowing that He is the author and finisher of my faith. This I ask in His precious name,
Lead me Lord in the way that I should go and give me I pray clarity of thought and a clear focus on what Your will is for the direction of my life. I am seeking You for guidance, direction, clarity and focus - and pray that by grace through faith I would walk in spirit and truth.. doing only those things that are pleasing in Your sight.
Lord You have promised wisdom to all who ask, and heavenly Father I am asking for that wisdom today, so that I may know the direction You would have me go and be enabled to make clear choices regarding the future.
Help me to always follow the path of faith and the road of righteousness and no diverted into the way of fear or overshadowed by doubts or engulfed in unbelief.

Help me to pray into Your will and to be shown clearly the way that You would have me go. Give me a correct focus on the direction that You would have me take and help me to plainly see what You have planned for my life.
Remove from my heart foolish desires or selfish motives, and keep me far away from seeking after the things of the world –the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. May I live godly in Christ Jesus, walk in a manner that is worthy of Him and live in spirit and truth – with my eyes focused on Christ and my will guided by Your Holy Spirit – this I ask in Jesus name,
Loving Lord, I am Your child and I believe that I am in the place where You want me to be.. and Lord it is my deepest desire to live and work to Your greater glory and to be a good and faithful witness of Your grace and goodness – to all with whom I come in contact.
Help me to be focussed in all I do, to Your praise and glory.. as well being both fruitful and unceasingly productive, May I concentrate my efforts in the most efficient and effective way, so that I may fulfil my daily duties and responsibilities with creativity and integrity.

Heavenly Father, I pray that You would help me to concentrate on my studies and to focus on the work that I need to carry out, so that I may do well in my course work and in the end of term exams.
I pray that I may develop a greater enthusiasm for my studies and develop a desire to work hard and to perform well. I pray that I will not become weary - but ask that I may learn to focus on the task at hand and to complete each activity with conscientious care.
Thank You for the opportunity to develop my skill and understanding in my various classes and activities I am taking and help me to make the best use of every hour – to Your praise and glory,
Heavenly Father, Your word tells us that the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of those that mock and ridicules God, is a blessed man indeed and Father it is my desire to live my life as unto the Lord and to carry out my work in a godly way - and to keep the Lord Jesus as the central focus of my heart, day by day.
I thank and praise You for my job, and pray that I will not compromise my faith in any way, but that all I say and do may be done to Your praise and glory – this I ask in Jesus name,
Gracious heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that Your mercies are new every morning and that Your goodness and kindness follow me all the days of my life.
Help me never to lose sight of the enormous price that You paid on the cross on my behalf and I pray that Christ may remain the centre and the circumference of my life- focus, every moment of the day.
I pray that in weakness You would be my strength, in sickness You would be my health, in sadness You would be my joy and in every circumstance of life You would be my blessed hope and the rock of my salvation.
And Lord I pray that the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart may always be acceptable and pleasing to You - in Jesus name I pray,
Thank You Father for Your gracious gift of prayer that enables me to enter Your throne room of grace any time, knowing that You have granted access to all who are bought with the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that I may come boldly to Your throne of grace, so that I may obtain mercy and grace to help in time of need.
I thank You that I have been imputed with the righteousness of Jesus Christ – for by His death and resurrection I have been made pure… and Lord I want to live a life that is pure and holy in Your sight..
I pray that You would deepen my faith in Your precious Word and my trust in Your unchangeable character and ask that in Your grace You would strengthen my inner being through the power of Your mighty arm - and the strength of Your Holy Spirit.
Let my mind be fixed on Jesus and when wrong thoughts or foolish doubt enter my heart – I pray that I would take that thought captive and banish that doubt from my mind as I look to Christ and rest in the unfailing promise of His sufficient grace.
Lord when I am tempted to sin I pray that I may quickly look to You and away from the temptation – and should I sin Lord, I pray that I would immediately fly into Your arms of forgiveness - for You have promised that if we confess our sins - You are faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness – so that we may be renewed into sweet fellowship once again with Yourself.
Thank You for the wonderful example of Christ my Saviour and I pray that I may grow more and more like Him with every passing day, in Whose name I pray,
Heavenly Father, I praise Your name that I am a new creation in Christ and a member of His body. I thank You that He came to earth to die on the cruel tree so that I could be raised up into newness of life and abide with You for ever, in heavenly places.
Help me Lord to keep my eyes fixed on the Lord Jesus and focussed on His victory. Help me to take every thought that enters my mind captive so that it is not tainted by the ways of the world. Help me not to allow my attention to be diverted away from the things that are eternally important to the temporal things of the world, which are quickly fading away – Help me Lord to focus on You as I wake in the morning; as I rest at night and throughout the business of every passing day.
Lord I desire to grow in grace and mature in the faith. Help me not to lose heart or to grow weary with well-doing but set my heart on things above and be ready and willing to give an answer for the glorious hope that is in me, in Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour.
Dear heavenly Father, I find that my mind too often starts to wander when I am needing to concentrate on the issue at hand. I know that the Bible encourages us to be alert and attentive, knowing that lapses in concentration can be quite serious and I ask that You would help me to cope with this issue and teach me how to keep my mind focussed on the job that needs to be done.
Help me Lord to be sober and vigilant .. just like the Bible says, knowing that the enemy is like a roaring lion who is seeking to devour and harm those that are Your children.. You see Lord I do not want this inability to concentrate to become my downfall in this area.
Lord You have told us to cast all our cares and concerns on You and this is becoming a major worry for me. Keep me I pray from becoming distracted at help me to develop the ability to really concentrate at work and during my study times.. and also during my prayer sessions. Thank You Lord for listening and answering my petition in Jesus name,
Loving Lord we are the Body of Christ and we are the Church of God and as You told us in Your Word - we are facing increasing difficulties in our lives today, and much animosity towards the things of God. But Father we know that our help is in You for You alone are the Rock upon which we stand and You are the Hope of our salvation. Keep our heart focussed on You I pray, and our eyes fixed on our Savour, Jesus Christ.
Help us Lord to remain strong in the faith with our hearts focussed on the truth of Your Word. Keep us strong in the Lord and in the power of His might and may we put on the whole armour of God as we face an increasingly hostile world - for Lord, only as we remain in You and our hearts are centred upon the Lord Jesus will we gain victory over the world, the flesh and the devil.
We praise You that Christ won the spiritual victory on the cross. Keep Your Church ever focussed on that truth and help us never to forget that what we suffer in the world today is nothing compared with the glory soon to be revealed to us,
Dear Father God, I pray today that I will yield myself completely to You, so that You may use me in whatever way You choose. I pray that You will provide me opportunities to demonstrate to others – b0th in word and in deed, how much You mean to me.
Give me wisdom to know what to say and the sensitivity to speak the truth in love. I pray that I may be bold enough to proclaim the gospel of Christ clearly and truthfully and I ask that many seeds may be planted through my actions and attitude as well as my words.
Thank You Father for sending the Lord Jesus to be my Saviour. May I never lose focus of the amazing grace that caused Christ to die for my sins on Calvary’s cross and may I never tire of sharing this beautiful truth with whomever You place in my path – this I ask in Jesus name,
