Prayer To Overcome Today’s Difficulties

Father God, I know that the life-path I am treading is fraught with difficulties and problems but Lord I trust You to lead and guide me through the maze of life, because You have promised to be with me to lead and to guide – to strengthen and to help.

Let me never lose sight of who I am in Christ and help me to trust You in all things, knowing that I am Your child and that greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.

Thank You that You are my Shepherd Who has promised to lead and to guide.. to protect and to uphold. Thank You that you are my Defence and my Defender and that You have promised to be my ever-present help in those times of unexpected difficulties and trials.

Thank You Lord, that You remain faithful and dependable, even when I stray from the path that You have graciously laid out for me. May I never forget that You are my firm Anchor and the steady Rock upon which I stand, and that no difficulty in life is to great that You cannot overcome – thank You in Jesus name,

“BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.”
(Psalm 119:9)

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,


“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”

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
“My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.”

For A Dying Christian Friend in a Hospice

Loving Lord, I just want to lift up my dear friend to You, who has been such a comfort and strength to me for so many years – but who has at last been admitted to a hospice where she is to pass her final few weeks of life in dignity and respect - as her life drains from her.. Lord I know that I am going to miss her so much…

Be with her Lord, every moment of the day and night. Thank You Father that she is to be looked after in such a caring and understanding environment. Be with the staff who are to attend her as her life flows from her and Lord –I pray that she would be very aware of Your very presence with her, every moment of the day.

Lord I know that she is ready and longing to meet You face to face and I ask that You would keep her free from the pain and suffering that so often stalks the advancement of death – But praise God that the grave has lost its terrible sting and death has lost its victory, through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.. Praise Your holy name…

Lord I know that I am going to miss my dear friend – but my sadness has such a wonderful tinge of hope and joy, for I know that soon we will all be together in Your company – where we will be free from all sickness and sadness – and You will wipe away every tear from our eyes. Thank You Lord in Jesus name…

“Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.”
