Prayer For Loss And Deep Grief

O God, I come to You filled with hurt and sadness and even anger because of my great loss. Lord I know that You have a plan for each of our lives – but I am in such pain and grief that it is hard to focus on the truth that You do care and that You have had to face deep grief and loss too. Lord my hurt and pain runs deep and I feel that my heart is breaking – I ask you to touch my hurting heart.

I know Lord that You are the God of comfort and that You have been with me every step of the way and ask You to draw ever closer to me at this time for I feel that my whole world has been shattered.

I find it hard when people who don’t understand try to say words that they think are comforting but sometimes it makes the hurt even worse and I feel hurt and so very, very alone.

Lord I know it is true that in time the pain will lessen but please be with me – hold me close and stead me, for I know that without You I could not face another day – another hour.

I keep thinking about that song we used to sing when I was younger, never a heartache, and never a groan, never a teardrop, and never a moan, ever a danger but there on the throne, moment by moment He thinks of His own.

Hold me Lord I pray, and keep me moment by moment…
Moment by moment I am kept in Your love,
Moment by moment I’ve life from above,
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine

Thank You Lord that You are my God,

AMEN

Prayer For Those Addicted To Drugs

Oh Lord, I come to You to pray for all who are weighed down with some form of addition. Lord, You are the One Who came to set the captives free and to release the sinners from the chains that bind them – so I lift before Your throne of grace all those that have become addicted to drugs.

Lord I know some personally and others that I know nothing about – but You know everyone that is enchained by the curse of drug-addiction. Look with compassion on all that are ensnared by any form of addiction and send help and freedom to all who would accept help. Lord I pray so that they may be released from this imprisonment and returned to a life that has dignity and meaning.

Give wisdom to their family members and those that care from them that they may be given the support and help to put them back on the road to recovery. Endow them with patience, understanding and perseverance, knowing that this can take time to address.

More than anything Lord I pray for their Salvation. You died for every drug addict and it was Your love for them that caused You to die on the cross of shame that they might be lifted up and seated with Christ in heavenly places…

Lord I know that You have promised to care for all Your children – but there are so many… I don’t understand how You can care for us all… nevertheless I want to trust You to keep Your word because You have promised – and You are faithful to keep Your promises.

Thank You Lord that You are my light and my salvation. I know that there is nothing to worry about when You are my strength and stay – Lord I believe that there is nothing that You cannot do – please help my unbelief Lord Jesus, for I know that when You are the stronghold of my life there is nothing of which to be afraid…

Thank You Lord

Amen

Prayer For My Grandma’s Bed Sores

Dear Lord Jesus, my dear grandmother has been confined to bed as she has lost the strength in her legs and is having to spend a lot of her time in bed or sitting in a chair… but Lord this has caused her to have some really bad bedsores on her back and Lord I know they are so painful, even though she does not complain about them.

Please Lord I ask that You would heal them.. Help us to find the right ointment so that they may be healed and give us wisdom as we try to look after her and keep her as comfortable as possible with these nasty bedsores..

I do thank You for my grandmother who is such a gentle lady and who has been such a wonderful encouragement to me as I have been growing up. Be close to her Lord, heal her Lord I pray and thank You for her life and witness.

For Families With An Alcoholic Father

Loving heavenly Father, You put us into families and set a father as the leader and role model for each family… but Lord there are many families that are being torn apart by a husband and father that has become addicted to alcohol.

Knowing the devastating nature of this disease, I pray that You would prompt each one to turn away from this evil habit to become the responsible husband and father that You desire each one to be.

Lord we know that there are many alcoholic husbands that abuse their wives both physically and emotionally and that many children are also placed in danger, due to abuse from an alcoholic father – and also Lord, that such drinking habits can often leave families with insufficient money to live on.

Protect all those that are vulnerable from all forms of abuse and convict such men of the responsibilities of being loving husbands and dependable fathers – and Lord we pray that they turn from their evil ways to turn to the Lord Jesus – knowing that only in You is true freedom found.

Thank You Father – I commit all families that are in this position into Your safe-keeping,

Amen

Dear God, I just want to bring my precious Grandma to You as she is quite poorly and I just ask Lord that You would touch her with Your healing hands and restore her to full health and strength – but oh Lord I also know that she is getting older and her health has been deteriorating quite rapidly over the past few months.

Father I know that our times are in Your hands and for everything there is a season and I know Lord that life does not continue indefinitely, nevertheless I do pray that she may be restored to good health.

Be with her Lord in her sickness and may she feel Your presence with her. Provide for all her needs I pray and I ask Lord that the doctors may identify the right medicines to help speed her recovery.

Christian’s Prayer To Quit Smoking

Father I come to You in the Name of Jesus, my Saviour and I thank You that HE died to pay the price for my sins and to set me free from the power of sin and death. Lord I particularly come to You today to seek Your face on this habit of smoking - a long-time habit that I have found so difficult to break.

Lord, I know that I am not condemned because of my smoking – nevertheless it is a habit that I truly want to break and have come to You to pray that You would give me Your grace and strength to help in this time of my need..

Lord, Your word says that I can do all things through Christ Who gives me the strength and I pray that You would indeed give me the strength to completely stop smoking and also to remove the desire that I have to light up. Lord I know that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit and do not want this habit to be a master over my body and my will – but rather I want You alone to have first place in my life and within my body.

Give me the grace I pray to enable me to stop this habit completely, and to have the desire to smoke eliminated from me – and I will give You all the praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen

Healing Prayer For A Lonely Person

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.

Dear God, we cry to You to send rains to the parched lands of Texas.

Prayer Of Comfort for the Grieving

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. Amen

Prayer and Praise During Advent

Dear heavenly Father, at this time of the year when the Church remembers the first coming of our Lord and Saviour into the world, we want to lift up our hearts and voices in prayer and praise to You, for sending the Lord Jesus Christ into the world to be our Saviour– so that through his blood we may be brought back into a right relationship with Yourself and receive the gift of eternal life – by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

At this time our thoughts are specially drawn in remembrance to the wonderful time, so long ago, when God in His grace sent the eternal Son of His love into the world to become the propitiation for our sins. How we rejoice when we recall that He set aside His glory and great majesty to take on the form of a man and be born into this world as a tiny baby, in such humble circumstances.

Lord in a world that is become more secular, I pray that the people of God who are called by Your name would take time to reflect with awe and wonder on this amazing truth and to prepare our hearts for the time when Jesus Christ will return again in power and great glory at His second Advent..

Purify our hearts we pray and sanctify our lives so they we may serve you in newness of life not only in this special season of Advent but every day of our lives – until You come to take us to be with You forever, in Jesus name we pray,

Amen

For Trust In A Special Relationship

Oh God I come to You saddened in soul and with a heart that is breaking. You brought a special person into my life, for which I thank You Lord, and we were so happy together for a time - but for many reasons, including my jealous nature, things have gone sour between us and we have moved apart.

Lord I confess to You that I acted in a way that was not appropriate and did not permit trust between us to develop and to grow as it should. Look down on us in pity I pray – and ask that You would open up an opportunity for us to be properly reconciled so that we may build up our relationship together.

Lord I know that so often when we make foolish mistakes we have to take the responsibility for the outcome, which is not always the way that we would hope - but I do pray that our relationship is not finished and that in Your grace You would restore again the joy of being together and the special love we had for each other.

Change Me Lord – remove this jealous streak that has caused me so many problems in my life I pray,– for I know that this is not from You Lord - and make me more like the Lord Jesus, not only in my actions but in my attitudes and emotions. May Your will be done in our lives and even if we do not get back together – Lord, I pray that we may be reconciled, so that we may separate graciously and not in the current animosity. I ask this in Jesus name,

Amen

Prayer For Unbelievers at Advent Time

Dear Lord, what great hope and mystery surrounds this lovely time of the year when the body of Christ specially remember the first advent of our Lord Jesus with such anticipation – that wonderful time when You came into the world, so many years ago, as the King of Israel and Saviour of the world.

Lord we know that it is not Your will that anyone should perish but that all should come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Who alone can save a dying world, that is lost in trespasses and sins.

Open the eyes and the hearts of those that are lost in their sins and blinded to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ. Visit those we pray who have not yet accepted the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Convict those who have their attention fixed on the temporal things that are passing away….. Lord at this time of Advent when the people of the world are so busy in making preparation for a secular Christmas, we ask You to convict many hearts of their real need of Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

Bring many we pray to a deeper understanding of the real meaning of Advent and Christmas, Help them to come to and realise that this is a time of hope, as we remember when the eternal God became the prefect Man – and was born as a baby to die on a cross for the sin of the world. Help them to understand that He lived His life in the shadow of the cross, so that sinful man could be forgiven - by simply believing on His name. Look down in pity on all who do not know the Lord Jesus as Saviour, in Whose name we pray,

Losing Hope Through Addiction

Gracious God, I bring all those who think that they are a hopeless case and that there is no way out of the terrible addiction which has entrapped them – Lord there are so many people who have become enslaved to various forms of addiction – yet we know that there is wonderful hope for everyone - no matter what level to which they have sunk for Christ died for all – His death paid the price for every addict and all they have to do is to believe that Christ died on the cross to take the punishment that they deserve and rose to give them life – if they will only believe..

Lord He seems to have been dragged in so deeply into this addiction that I fear that he is unlikely to emerge from it – but my trust is in You and I pray that in Your love and grace You will reach down and convict him of his need of You and draw him back into a right relationship with You..

Father I know he needs to take responsibility for this serious addiction- but I know that at times it can be seen as an illness – Lord look down in pity I pray on my brother and help him become free – in Jesus name I pray,

Amen

Prayer For A Child Caught Up In Addiction

Dear Lord Jesus, our heart is breaking with grief because our precious child has gone down the route of addiction. They have left home and are now living rough in the streets and seem to have become an entirely different personality. Lord we have not seen them now for many months and we are filled with great sadness –but we are trusting You Lord to work a miracle.

Look down Lord Jesus in pity on our dear child and convict them of their wrongdoing and restore a right mind within them. Protect them Lord from the dangers that surround them and bring them home Lord we pray.

Lord there is nothing that we can do, but to trust You - and we DO trust You Lord, to turn our child right round and return them home. Into Your hands we commit this great sadness and pray that the return of our precious prodigal will take place very soon – and we will give You all the praise and glory,

Amen

Prayer Of Gratitude For My Home And Family

Loving heavenly Father You have been with me in good times and in the bad times and I lift my hands up to You in gratitude for my home and for the family, into which You have so lovingly placed me.

You Lord have filled our home with so many blessings – and even when times have been tough and the circumstances of life have been very difficult, You have blessed me with such a loving family - which is becoming more and more of a blessing with each passing day – How I thank You Lord Jesus and bless Your holy name.

Thank You Lord for my parents, who have been so supportive of me -not only in my early years but also as I have grown older. I pray Your blessing on both of them and also on the wider family too – my aunts and uncles – brothers and sisters – nephews, nieces, cousins and grandparents – all of whom have been a blessing in their own special way.

I specially thank You for my spouse and the joy of seeing our own children born into the world and growing up into responsible adults – oh and Lord for the miracle of seeing the birth of my own precious grandchildren. What a joy this has been and how I praise You for all Your goodness and mercy to me.

And Lord thank You for all those who are in the wider body of Christ, – my brothers and sisters around the world, that have become such and important part of my eternal family. Thank You for the wonderful joy of knowing that we will all be united with You in love in heavenly places in the days to come, when we are given our glorified bodies in the eternal state. There are no words that are sufficient to express the gratitude I have that You are my Father –my Brother - my Lover – my Friend, in Jesus name I pray,

Prayer Accountability in a Christian Home

Loving Lord, You have placed us all in families and have, by Your own authority, established Your own statutes and laws. Thank You for placing us all in families and for my own family, in particular.

Thank You for the clarity with which You have taught us in Your word how that family that is seeking to do Your will, behaves… and the rolls that each of us holds within our own special family unit.

Thank You Lord, that You are our Father and have authorised the man of the home to take the place of authority, as the head of the family - just as You yourself are the Head of the family of God. May the men who are in this responsible role behave in a manner that is pleasing to You, by treating their wives with love and respect and their children with loving discipline and wise counsel. May they each become men after Your own heart as they assume their God-given role in their own homes.

May wives be gentle and gracious and willing to act in the crucial role of helper that You, Yourself have graciously placed them – may wives reflect the great love that Christ had for the Father and the sweet gentleness of the Holy Spirit – just as Jesus demonstrated these qualities in His own life… by submitting graciously to the Father’s will and desiring to do only those things that are pleasing to Him Give wives wisdom in the way that they behave towards their men-folk and may they grow in grace more and more as they walk in the steps of the lovely Lord Jesus Christ – Who was so full grace and truth.

Thank You for the heritage and gift of children, who we understand are a gift from God – a gift that has been lent from the Lord and a gift that You have graciously placed in so many families. And we pray that You would give all parents the grace and wisdom to teach and discipline their children in loving-kindness– and may the children themselves respect their parents and recognise the privilege they have in being part of a godly family unit. Loving Lord thank You for my family – and into YOUR hands I commit my family, from this day forward, even for evermore.

Amen

The Death Of A Believer

Loving Lord I am filled with grief and sadness at the loss of my precious loved one – and yet that pain is tinged with gold, knowing that they trusted you as their Saviour and that they are now in Your presence.

I know that I am going to miss this precious one, who has been my strength and my joy for so long, and thank You for the precious times we had together.

Often Lord I expect my dear one to just be there, or walk through the door - and then remember that they have gone home to be with You. At times this is quite hard and yet I know that I must not grieve as those that have not hope in Jesus – but rejoice knowing that the day is coming when we will be together with You and You will wipe away all tears from our eyes - but at the moment my loss is like an open wound – and I pray that You will heal my brokenness and the loneliness I feel… and draw me every closer into Your arms of love my Lord and my God.

Thank You for all You are to me and may I rest in You in Jesus name,

Prayer For Help With My Smoking Addiction

Dear Lord, I know that my smoking has become sinful because it is has such a strong hold over me. Lord I confess that I have allowed my smoking to take over, and to rule my life – even allowing it to dictate to my God-given volition and will – and Father I know that this in not Your will for my life – I want to change and to give up smoking and ask for Your help in this matter.

So Lord, I humbly come to You asking to put my life into Your hands, so that it is Your will that is done in my life.

Thank You for loving me so much that You died to break the power of sin in my life – including this ungodly addiction that is so ruinous.

May Your will be done in my life – Give me the desire and the will to stop this addiction and thank You Father for hearing my prayer and for always being there for me, in Jesus name I pray,

Prayer For Women Planning An Abortion

Heavenly Father we know that every good and perfect gift comes from You and that children are a special heritage from the Lord. But Father, we also know that the enemy of our soul seeks to kill and destroy all that is from You, and especially the lives of little babies in the womb.

And so we lift up all women who may be planning to have an abortion, or who have been deceived into thinking that this is a woman’s right, rather than a sin against their creator God – and we pray that You would create in their hearts a desire to do what is right and a realisation of the evil that surrounds the practice of abortion, that they themselves are considering

Bring into the life of each mother those that would give godly counsel and change the hearts of those who have already made a decision to go down the route of abortion.

Instil in the heart of each woman a deep love for the baby they are carrying and we pray that many may be prompted to turn from their planned abortion and look to the Lord Jesus.. for the grace do what is right - this we ask in Jesus name,

Amen

Purity Prayer, For God To Search My Heart

Heavenly Father, I long to be like Jesus and know that in myself I will always fall short of His standard of perfection and purity, but Lord I pray that You would examine my inner heart and secret thoughts and identify in me those areas that need to be rooted out, so that Christ may live in me and work through me to Your greater glory.

Give me the grace to recognise any impure areas in my life that need to be rooted out – and make me willing to engage in the painful process of having all that dishonours Your name cut away.. by the Holy Spirit’s scalpel of truth. Help me to keep the eyes of my heart fixed on Jesus Christ my Lord and grant me the purity of heart and integrity of spirit that is becoming of a vessel fit for Your use.

Begin to search me today O Lord and know my heart, and see if there is any impurity of heart, evil intent or prideful thoughts and may I be willing to be stripped of everything that is not of You, so that I may be pure and holy in Your sight, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen

Help me to live a life that is a sweet-smelling perfume before You. All praise and worship be to You forever and ever, in His name I pray, AMEN.

Prayer To Be Set Free For Anger And Bitterness

Loving Lord I place that anger and bitterness that I too often harbour in my heart at Your feet and pray that in Your grace You will expose all that is causing the bitter poison that is lodged within my heart to surface so often - and set me free from it, I pray.

Lord I confess all my anger and bitterness and know that when I allow this to surface in my heart it breaks the fellowship we have together. I know that when I confess my anger You are faithful and just to forgive the outbursts of anger in my heart and to cleanse me of all unrighteousness, for which I praise Your name. But Lord I desire that I am set free from this pollution within my heart so that the root of anger shrives us within - and ask You to examine me and root out all that is not pleasing in Your sight

Thank You in Jesus name,

Anen

To Walk Close to Thee

O God, our Father, help us to see ourselves as children who seek guidance; children who walk in the midst of many dangers.

Help us not to be afraid so long as we walk close to Thee. Thy ways, O God are higher than our ways and often we do not understand. Teach us, O God, that we do not have to understand but to trust and Thou wilt see us through every difficulty in life.

When Thou art near, I am not afraid, I want to “draw nigh to God” in the assurance that when I do, He will “draw nigh unto me,”

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

“The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.”
