Prayer For All Babies

Heavenly Father, how we praise and thank You for the precious little lives of all new-born babies, little toddlers and young children, knowing that each one is special to You and was known in Your heart, even before conception.
Thank You, that You have scheduled every day of each little life, and we praise and thank You for the special plans and purposes You have for every single new-born child, for all babies and infants.
We pray Your loving protection over all babies and their families and pray that many may be brought up to know the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Give parents and grandparents and all those that are in any way connected with young babies, the wisdom and grace to care for them in a loving and secure environment.
Guard and protect, guide and provide for each innocent little baby and protect their the hearts and minds from a society that has grown far from the God Who created them and sent His Son to die, so that they might life. 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 all 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. 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 have contracted some sort of health problem, and I just ask You to visit each of us at this time of illness, stretch Your healing hand on each of our lives and restore us to good health.

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)

Help Me To Give You My Anxieties

Lord, I don’t want to be anxious about anything, knowing that I can cast all of my anxious thoughts on You, but how difficult I find it to cast all my cares on You, before I start to worry. What often happens is that I become more and more anxious over all the difficulties of life that are crowding in on me, and eventually I turn my thoughts to You and reach out to You in my helplessness.

Lord, in my understanding of Who You are I know that You are always my Rock in times of troubles and over and again I have seen You help in time of need, but very rarely do You act in the way that I expect!

Lord, I know that I am not to be anxious about the provision of life and the needs of the home, nor am I to fret over the actions and attitudes of evildoers, who seem to encompass me on every side, for I know and believe that the day is coming when evildoers will wither away like the grass of the field, as Your Word teaches, while those that trust in the Lord will dwell securely, under the shadow of Your wings.

Help me Lord to cast my anxious thoughts on You before I start to fret. Help me to reach out to You in my helplessness before I try to sort things out myself, for You have promised to be my help in time of trouble. Thank You for being such a faithful God.
