Loving Lord Jesus, thank You that You are a God Who hears and answers all our prayers.. even those prayers where an answer seems to be a long time in coming. Thank You that You hear and respond to all Your children who come to you in humility of heart …not relying on our own abilities or our own worth - but only on the merit and righteousness of our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Teach me Lord to be patient in my prayers and to learn to wait quietly and trustingly for Your perfect timing – knowing that in all things You are teaching and training me to be more Christ-like in all my works and ways – including my praying.
Lord, teach me to pray aright. Teach me to pray according to Your perfect will - and I pray that however long I need to wait I ask that You would teach me to be patient in my waiting and to trust Your word for all that You have promised – no matter what may happen – knowing that everything that we ask according to Your will be accomplished.
Thank You Lord that I am Your child and that You are my Father – and that through Christ Jesus I can cry our – Abba, Father…. knowing that I have full access to Your throne of grace, when I come to You in weakness and humility of heart. Thank You in Jesus name,
Dear heavenly Father, I feel so weak and foolish when I come to You in prayer as I often do not know what I pray or how to form the thoughts of my hearts into words that make sense..
But Lord it is a comfort to read in the scripture that the Holy Spirit is there for me in all my weaknesses –including those times when I find it hard to pray. Thank You Lord that even when I don't know what to pray for or what God wants me to pray for - the Holy Spirit will somehow pray for me in an inexpressible way.. Thank You for this great comfort to my soul.
Help me to pray in a way that is pleasing to You Lord, even when the words will not come…Help me to hate what is evil; cling to what is good; be kind to one another in love and honour other people above myself. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord. Please Lord, help me to be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer - even when I don’t know what to pray.
Thank You heavenly Father for the work of the Holy Spirit in my life and for the privilege of being able to come to You in prayer.. even when I say nothing… Praise Your holy name,
Living Lord, thank You that You are dwelling in me and I in You… and thank You that You have equipped all Your children with this wonderful privilege of prayer. Thank You that the death of the Lord Jesus Christ opened up the way for us to come boldly to the throne of grace - and to offer prayers to You in time of need.
Lord teach me to pray in a way that my prayers are effective and full of power, both with men and with You Father…
Heavenly Father there are so many souls that are lost in their trespasses and sins and weighed down by sorrow and care – so many Lord are facing an eternity separated from You and Lord we know that it is not Your will that any should perish, but that all should come to faith in the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Teach me Lord the best way to pray for these people who need You.
Father I know that it is not Your will that any person should perish and be separated from You forever - and so Lord I bring a lost world to You and lay that Scripture before Your throne of grace and pray that in Your mercy You would convict many in this lost and dying world of their sins, and their need of a Saviour.
Bring many I pray to saving faith in the Lord Jesus and so that Your name will be glorified in their lives not only in this world but in the ages to come.. I pray this in the wonderful name of Jesus my Saviour and King,
Loving Father, teach me to pray like Jesus prayed.. from a heart that is in union with You day by day – so that in all things I am praying into Your good and perfect will. Lord I pray that my prayers may be a sweet incense rising to Your throne of grace and that through my prayers Your name would be lifted up on high and glorified.
Loving Lord, so many times I find that my will to pray is so weak and that my ability to pray is influenced by my the desires of my own heart, which I realise may not be Your will – or could even conflict with Your good and perfect will.
Teach me to pray aright. Teach me to pray into Your good and perfect will and keep me from praying fleshly prayers, that have been formed in my own heart and are not in perfect union with Your plans and purposes.
Lord at times my flesh is weak as I come to Your throne of grace in prayer – but I ask, Father, that You would renew a right spirit within me and give me the power to pray in spirit and truth – in a way that is pleasing to You.
Thank You for the wonderful pattern of prayer that I have in the Lord Jesus and teach me to pray, as He did – only those things that are righteous and pleasing in Your sight – I ask this in Jesus holy name,
Dear Lord Jesus, what a privilege we have as Your blood-bought children to be able to enter the throne-room of grace and bring our prayers and supplication right into the presence of God – through our Lord Jesus Christ – so Father God, teach me to pray– teach me to pray Lord.
My heart longs to pray in the way that is pleasing to You Father, so that my prayers are both powerful and effective. I want to know You better so that I may know Your will – in order that I may pray into Your perfect plans and purposes, not only in my own life and the lives of those that I love, but also in a world where lost men are dying and souls are in despair. But Lord, I understand that only as I abide in You and rest my weary soul in Your loving arms - by submitting to Your Holy Spirit, day by day in spirit and truth, will my prayers and pleadings accomplish wonderful results that are honouring to You.
Teach me Your will I pray, through Your Word - and may Your guiding Holy Spirit turn the thoughts of my heart towards those things that You have planned and purposed… so that I may truly pray into You will - so that Your name may be glorified in my humble supplications.
Teach me day by day to pray as I ought – in Jesus name I pray,
