Prayer for Proverbs 1 ►
Heavenly Father, I bow my knee before You in prayer and praise. Lead and guide me today in all You say and do. May I walk in spirit and truth today and be sensitive to Your gentle guidance.
Help me I pray to fix my eyes on the Lord Jesus, knowing that without Him I will quickly stray from the path that is best for me. Lord I believe that You have scheduled every day of my life and I do not want to stray from the path that You would have me take.
Help me to be faithful to You and to willing go along the path of Your choosing, knowing that it may conflict with my own desires and wishes. Develop in me a heart that delights to do Your will so that the longings of my heart are brought into line with Your plans and purposes and Your will for my life.
Let my eyes always be looking to You and keep me from the looking at the storms and difficulties of life, knowing that You are with me to lead and guide and to uphold to Your praise and glory.
Thank You that Jesus is the Way and the Truth and the Life and I desire to do only that which is pleasing in Your site, in His name I pray,
“A wise man
will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:”

Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for my Mom and for all the love and patience that she has tirelessly given to me throughout my life. I am so grateful for her and although I don’t often show her how much I love her.. I do want to thank You with all my heart for blessing me with my dear mother.
Thank You for all the sacrifices that she has made for me on so many occasions and for the way that she never seems to think about her own needs, but always tries to do what is best for me.. and I am also very grateful for her faithful prayers for me, day by day.. for I know that they has been instrumental in keeping me steady on those occasions when I might have gone astray.
I pray Your special blessing on my Mom and ask that You would guard her and protect her with good health and fill her with Your comfort and joy - and may she grow ever closer to You in the days that lie ahead – this I ask in Jesus name
“My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:”

Loving Lord and Heavenly king, I want to lift up some dear friends of mind that are going through much grief at the moment and are finding it so difficult to come to terms with all that has taken place in the last few days…
I humbly ask that You would come to them and provide the comfort they need to come to terms with all that has happened - and the strength to face the reality that things will never be as they were.
Lord I know that their grief seems to be overwhelming them and I am hurting for them, and know not what to do to help – and so I am coming to You to in prayer, to ask that You will meet each of them at their point of need and help them to turn to You at this sad time.
I pray that as the day passes Your healing touch will comfort and succour them in this time of distress and may this be a thing that causes each of them to draw closer to You, knowing that You alone can heal the broken-hearted and bring joy out of pain.
Thank You Lord for being there for me and into Your hands I place each one of these dear ones who have such sadness in their hearts – I KNOW in Whom I believe and an confident that You will bring good out of this situation – and to You be all the praise and glory,
“When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.”

Oh Lord I am ill and feel frightened and alone as I have no one to care for me – I have no one who is really interested in me at all and I feel lost and alone and so vulnerable. And now Lord Jesus, I have come down with this sickness and I feel so ill – Lord, I ask You please to make me well again – and soon, and lift up my sagging spirit I pray.
I know Lord in my heart that I am not alone, because You are with me – which is the real reason that I am praying to You now, because You promised to be with me and never to leave me or forsake me – even when everyone else does. Be with me now I pray and reach out Your healing hand of blessing and touch me Lord, I pray. Please make me feel better – not only in my body but also in my life, I pray.
Thank You that I can call on You in times of trouble or illness or loneliness and know that You are always there to hear and answer - to heal and comfort and help. Lord, I pray that You would help me to really apply this truth in my life – not just when I am poorly, but every day, I pray,
“Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:”
