Father God, I come to You in brokenness of spirit and deep need, knowing that for too long I have been out of Your will and out of fellowship with You, as I have allowed this addiction to overtake my life, and have been trapped under its power. Lord I know that it is not right to be so consumed and addicted, and so I come to You with a broken heart and a penitential spirit to plead for Your forgiveness and grace.. and to ask for Your help – for I know that nothing but the power of Jesus in my life can break this enslaving addiction.
Lord the fear that wells up in me as I project my life into the future has caused great concern and despair to flood my heart for I know that You have not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and love and a self-disciplined mind – and Lord.. although I have strayed far from You, I am Your child and I ask that You would rescue me from this addiction and enable me to overcome the hold that it has on my life.
Thank You Father that You have promised Your perfect peace on all who keep looking to Jesus and I ask that in Your grace You would lift me back out of this place of addiction and establish me back on the Rock of my Salvation – in Jesus name I pray,
Heavenly Father, I thank You that You are my God and Saviour and I bless You that You take and use every circumstance of my life to help me to mature in the faith, to grow in grace and to become the person that You would have me be. Lord too often the circumstances of my life do not reflect my personal choice, but more and more You are showing me that Your ways are best for my life – and I do thank You for all that You are teaching me through the many adversities that I have had to face, for I recognise that through them You are drawing me ever closer into Your arms of love.
Help me I pray to gain a greater understanding of Your perfect perspective on my life. Give me patience I pray in all my adversities and help me to recognise Your guiding hand and Your loving patience towards me. I pray that I will not be overwhelmed or overcome by life’s difficulties, but use each one I pray, to teach me more of Your character, love and grace – and make me increasingly willing to be changed into the person You would have me be – to Your greater glory in Jesus name I pray,
Father work deeply in my heart I pray to help me to accept the disappointments in life that I have been facing recently.. as You slowly and graciously unfold the plan and purpose that you have for me. Help me to accept any and all disappointments that I may have to face with a trusting heart that does not question “why”. Teach me to pray, “Thy will be done” in my life, just as the Lord Jesus prayed when He faced the disappointments and pain of His coming crucifixion. Give me a submissive heart that humbly bows before Your will in my life, especially when I don’t understand.
Lord I know that You have purposed that the way that we deal with the disappointments and distresses in life, in some wonderful way is used by You to glorify Your name. Lord I don’t understand how this can be.. but I do pray that You would give me the grace to accept each and every problem and pain of life, with godly grace and a trusting heart, and use it I pray, to Your praise and glory. I ask this in the name of Jesus,
Heavenly Father, we live in a world that is becoming increasingly evil and which can fill our hearts with fears and terror, when we see what is happening in the world around us - but I praise You that You have promised to uphold all Your children with Your righteous right hand when we are faced with all sorts of horrors and dangers - and that no matter what we may have to face in this life, You will always be with us to comfort and succour. Thank You Father, that Your plans and purposes for mankind will eventually be fully realised.
Father we have no clue what personal difficulties any one of us may have to face, but what a comfort to know that You have overcome every form of evil and sin, Satan and even death itself have already been overcome by the blood of Christ Jesus, Who has given us His life everlasting.
I thank You that You are a faithful and every-loving God and pray that when the icy fingers of fear start to clasp around our throat that the warmth of Your love and grace would melt away all our fears as we look to Jesus – our Saviour and friend, in Whose name we pray.
Father, I confess that my life has become filled with bitterness and the thoughts that so often have been flooding my mind are like toxic poisons that eat into my very being.. and Lord I know that this excludes me from any form of right thinking. Lord I have found it so difficult to understand why my prayers seem to be ignored when the circumstances of my life have become so burdensome and heavy.
Father I confess that the difficulties that seem to have hit me all at one time have caused self-pity to flood my soul and a root of bitterness against You has even started to grow within my heart – which has frankly shocked me.. and I realise that I am the only one that is being damaged by this destructive attitude and pray that in Your mercy You would change my heart back to one that trusts You, instead of one that doubts Your goodness.
Help me Lord. I come to You humbled in heart and seeking You to change my focus from an obsession with myself and my own problems to a correct Christian focus on Jesus and all that He has done for me. Lift me out of this pit of bitterness that I have dug for myself and renew a right spirit within me I pray. Cleanse me I pray and give me the grace to turn back to You with a heart that truly trusts and depends on You, in Jesus name I pray,
