Dear Lord, the march of time is become increasingly evident in my face and body, it is sometimes hard to accept that one is getting older and losing ones youthful bloom. Lord I know that the things of this world are vanity and yet I also know You created women with an inner desire to be beautiful. And yet I know that Your word clearly says that it is the woman that fears the Lord that shall be praised, for she shall be endowed with a special beauty that only comes from You.
Keep me Lord from foolishly wishing that I could regain my youth but rather help me to rejoice in my advancing years and allow the beauty of the Lord Jesus to shine through all I say and all I do. Help me to grow in grace and in knowledge of the Him so that my actions and attitudes are a reflection of His loveliness.
Thank You Lord that my citizenship is in heaven and that the day is coming when each one of us will cast of our old bodies like a garment and be clothed in the glorified body that You have promised to all that love and trust You as Saviour. In the meantime may I glorify You in my body, soul and spirit, knowing that this old body is a temple of the Holy Spirit – what condescension and grace that You should come to dwell in me – praise the Lord O my sould and all that is within me praise His holy name,
O Lord, forgive me, for I have been foolish and unwise in my life in so many ways and have got myself into many problems, that I hardly know where to turn. Please give me the courage and wisdom to admit where I have been wrong, not only to others - but to myself and especially to YOU.
Lord it is so easy to seek to justify some of the things that I have done, but in my heart I know that I have been careless in my relationships and my home life - and must have grieved Your Holy Spirit many times. Lord, I know that this has had a detrimental effect on me and especially my relationship with You, and I don’t want to go on like this any more. Lord I confess my faults and ask for Your gracious forgiveness .
LORD, help me to take every thought captive and to admit my faults quickly and turn immediately to You. I believe that You have had to bring me to this sharp halt in my life, and although it is very painful, I pray that You will forgive me and allow me to get back into fellowship with the Father. Lord I want to walk in Your ways and confess that I have been acting in a prideful manner and have not done the things that I ought to have done. Thank You that You have never given up on me and thank You for Your never-failing grace. Help me to walk in Your ways from this day forward I pray, in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, I thank You that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and that You knew me even before my mother conceived me. Thank You that You know all about me and that there is nothing hidden within, about which You do not know…
Thank You for loving me so much that You died for me on the cross and thank You that You rose from the dead and broke the power of sin and death in my life. Oh Lord You gave me life when I was physically born into this world and then You gave me spiritual life when I was born-again into Your family - by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
I want to thank You with all my heart for being my Saviour and forgiving my sins – for redeeming my life from destruction and lifting me up out of the miry clay and setting my feet on the Rock of my Salvation, Lord I desire to dedicate all I am to You – to live my life in humble submission - looking to Jesus, trusting Your word and obeying Your commands.
Lord I want to live by faith and not by sight – I want to walk in spirit and truth to Your praise and glory and not to simply satisfy my own personal wants and wishes. Give me grace to live a life that is well-pleasing to You and may I become a living sacrifice – holy and acceptable unto You – Search my heart I pray for any areas that are not pleasing to You and help me… in the power of Your Spirit to be holy for You are holy, in Jesus name I pray,
Dear Father God, I am just coming to You today because I just want to sit in Your presence, bathe in Your beauty, rest in Your love and to simply to spend time alone with You.
Lord I do not have any specific prayer to offer to You, except to say that I just want to be with You because I love You. Lord I just want to flood my mind with the wonder of Who You are and to rejoice in Your glory and grace. Lord at times I am overwhelmed by Your loving-kindness and tender mercies towards me. I don’t understand it but I praise You with all of my heart
At times Lord I am awestruck to realise that the God of the universe has chosen to take up residence in my frail body and that You want to have a close and personal relationship with me – to walk with me in the cool of the evening and to rest in the arms of each other – simply because You love me. Words are insufficient to convey the wonder of Who You are – and I thank You for being my Saviour and form loving me as You do, in Jesus name I praise Your holy name,
Loving Father, I thank You that You are with me all the time and am so grateful for Your many precious promises - that You will never leave me nor forsake me and that Your everlasting arms are forever upholding me day by day and moment by moment – but Lord, times I feel so very alone – so isolated and helpless, with no man in my life to deal with important issues, like sorting out my tax returns or dealing with those little fiddly things, when the drains get blocked-up or the boiler stops working – or the toilet seat breaks!
Lord I don’t want to complain for You have provided me with so much love and care throughout my whole life – but Lord at times I do feel so alone and so I pray that You would draw ever closer to me with every passing day and that You would not only equip me to deal competently with all the little fiddly things in life, but also that You would fill the empty void that I feel, because with being a woman alone.
Thank You for the faithful brothers and sisters in Christ that I do have, whether far away or nearby and thank You also for the members of my family that are so dear to me. Lord help me to develop an attitude of gratitude day by day and moment by moment, for what I DO have, rather then concentrating on my lack.
Help me to rejoice in the joys of my life rather than centring in on life’s woes. Thank You most of all for dying for me on the cross and rising again the third day so that all who believe in You may be given eternal life and the hope of a heavenly future with You in heaven, Thank You in Jesus name,
