Prayer for Psalm 27

Dear heavenly Father, You are my sufficiency and strength, my light and my life - my all in all . I pray that when dark clouds of unknowing loom across my heart that I immediately call to mind the wonderful truth of Who You really are, and of the wonderful security and eternal salvation I have in Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.

“{A Psalm of David.} The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
(Psalm 27:1)

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.
“Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.”

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

When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.”
(Psalm 27:8)

Heavenly Father, too often my old sin nature calls on me to take hold of the reins of my life instead of abiding in You and resting in Your promises. Help me to learn to wait on You and to be of good courage, knowing that You are in perfect control of my life - and all I am called upon to do is to quietly wait FOR You to act on my behalf and to confidently wait ON You with prayer and worships and a heart of thanksgiving and praise, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.”
