Prayer for Proverbs 15 ►
Dear Father in heaven, I pray that I may take note of the godly and gracious way to speak to others and apply it in my life. Help me to be careful when responding to the words of others, so that I do not promote anger. Help me to turn away any bitterness or wrath with a soft and gentle answer. May my speech be a tree of life to others and prevent me from ever crushing the heart or soul of another, through careless speech. I pray that my lips spread wisdom and knowledge and keep me from foolish reactions or from spouting folly in some unguarded moment. May my speech and language reflect the gracious words that fell from the lips of the Lord Jesus, during His sojourn on earth, and may I only say and do those things that honour Your name - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”
Source: Verse of the
day for Proverbs 15:1
Lord Jesus I know that You are close to those that are broken-hearted and grieving in their soul and that You rescue those that are crushed in spirit. Draw near to Your many children who are facing times of sadness and loss and draw each one ever closer into Your precious arms of love and support.
Thank You that You are wonderfully good to all who wait for You and seek You, and I pray that those of my brothers and sisters in Christ who, – for whatever reason – are facing times of grief and hardship in their lives - that in Your grace and mercy You would draw very close to each one and gently carry them on Your shoulders, as a Shepherd carries a little lamb that has been torn by the briars.
Be close to all that are grieving today I pray, and flood their souls with hope – knowing that underneath are Your everlasting arms.
Give me a heart that is sensitive to those that are grieving, the wisdom to know when to speak words of comfort or when to keep silent. And Lord I also pray that You would use my life to be a channel of encouragement and hope, through whom the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ will flow into their hearts – to heal and help.
Thank You Lord that You are a God that answers prayers.
“A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.”

Thank You Father for Your goodness and mercy to me, and to all men, which is new every morning and for the wonderful answers to prayer for which I praise and glorify Your name.
Thank You that I have access to the throne of grace, to find mercy and grace to help in time of need and day by day I praise and thank You hear that You hear and answer the cries of my heart and supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory.
Thank You Lord for the simple things in life that we so often take for granted.. the sun and stars; the flowers and trees; our daily food and clothing; my home and family and the peace and joy that comes from knowing You.
Thank You also for sharing in my sorrows and joys; and for the sufficient grace and strength that we receive day by day and thank You Lord for dying for me on the cross as my Redeemer – paying the price for my sins so that I may have Your life and live with You in heaven forever. May my heart be truly thankful and may I live my life in a manner that is pleasing to You to Your honour and glory, in Jesus name I pray,
“The LORD is
far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.”

Prayer of Thankfulness For Health And Strength
I just want to thanks You for the wonderful way that You have kept me in such good health, for so many years, and protected me from so many troublesome diseases.
You have lifted me up when I have been down; supported me through times of weakness and You have also healed me, when I have succumbed to a bed of sickness.
Keep me I pray in good health and strength - let me run and not grow weary and may I be used as a comfort and support to those that are not so fortunate as I.
“The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and
a good report maketh the bones fat.”
