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,


“Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.”
(Psalm 139:5)

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,


“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.”
(Psalm 139:13)

Prayer In A Time of Illness

Dear Father God, thank You for the many blessings that we receive from You daily and especially for the wonderful gift of salvation, which we have been given simply by trusting in Jesus as Saviour – thank You that He died to take the punishment I deserve for my sins, and that He rose again to break the power of sin and death in my life.. How I praise You and worship You for all Your many blessing.

Lord I thank You for my life and I know that we are wonderfully created and every part of our body is a miracle - but I come to You today as I am not at all well in my body and my health seems to be failing. I have always been fairly healthy Lord, for which I praise You but have come down recently with a number of unrelated ailments and Lord I feel so poorly and ask for Your healing touch on my life.

Be with me Lord, and with all that are facing similar problems in their lives. Lord it seems that so many people that I know has contracted some sort of health problem and I just ask You to visit each of us at this time of illness and stretch Your healing hand on each of our lives and restore us to good health, I pray.

Thank You that You are a God Who hears and answers prayers – in Jesus name I pray…

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
(Psalm 139:14)

Grief Due To Loss Of A Loved One

Loving Father, I am finding it so hard to even get up out of bed to start the day, knowing that I have to face it alone and without the one I love so dearly – I know that without Your grace and sufficiency I could never get through the day – but I thank You that You have promised to be with me and to provide me with Your strength for the day as well as bright hope for tomorrow.

I can’t imagine tomorrow being anything but a day filled with pain – as I do not have my loved one beside me, but I ask that in Your grace You will give me the strength to get through today, step by step - knowing that You are there to carry me, even when my heart seems to fail from the grief and pain that I am going through.

Thank You that You have promised to carry our pain and thank You that Your grace is sufficient for every eventuality in our lives. Give me the strength and to cope with the loneliness I feel and help me to move forward in my life-plans, knowing that You are with me, to support and strengthen.

Give me hope for tomorrow – for my hope and my trust is in You, Lord. Hold me close I pray and thank You for always being with me and the great comfort that I have in knowing You, as my own dear Saviour and friend.
“Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?”
(Psalm 139:21)

Thanks for Being With ME Today

How I love You Lord Jesus and just want to lift up my voice of thanks and gratitude for all that You are to me and for Your many precious promises that are ‘yes’ and ‘amen’ in Christ Jesus my Lord.

You have graciously watched over me every day of my life and every moment of each day. From the day I was conceived Your hand of blessing has been upon me. You protected me in the womb and were there when I drew my first breath and You are with me every step of the way - You have gone before me and yet You are there behind me – You are above me and You are below me as well.. holding me up by Your righteous right hand. You are with me and You indwell me and I thank You that You chose me before the foundation of the world to be Your child.

When I was afraid You were there to reassure me and when I fell You picked me up and set my feet on the right path. When the way was dark and gloomy You lighted my path and when sadness hit my life You were there to comfort and succour me. Oh… and Lord on those days when I proved faithless, You in Your grace remained faithful and true – for You cannot deny Your holy name.

I love You Lord for there is no-one like unto You. Thank You for being my Lord and my God, in Jesus name I pray,

“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:”
(Psalm 139:23)
