Praying through Psalm 42:1

Loving Father, I realise more and more how much I need You to be the Restorer of my soul. I need the living water from on high to refresh my heart and sustain my spirit. Times are hard, Father, and sometimes the pressures of life seem to encompass me on every side, but I praise Your name that You are my shelter from the heat and You alone revive my weary soul. Keep me and those I love under the shadow of Your wing. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

“{To the chief Musician, Maschil, for the sons of Korah.} As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.”
(Psalm 42:1)

Praying through Psalm 42:2

Heavenly Father, I pray that You would develop in me a deeper and more personal thirst for You, with each passing day. It is only as I drink deeply of Your living waters of life, that my soul can be satisfied. Use me, Lord, as a conduit through whom Your refreshment may be poured out to other thirsty souls. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?”

Prayer Of Thanks At Bedtime

Loving Father, thank You for being with me throughout today and for Your hand of blessing on my life. Thank You, for the way that You have led and guided me throughout this day, and I pray Your loving grace would rest on all that I have done – may it be to Your praise and glory.

Loving Lord, You are my strength and my sufficiency and I pray that as I settle down for the night, that You would enable me to drift into a deep and quiet sleep and a peaceful rest. Remove any little tensions that may have built up over the day, so that I may wake refreshed in the morning and ready and willing to do Your bidding.

Guard my unconscious thoughts Lord, and cover me with Your love. Draw me ever closer into Your loving arms. In Jesus' name, 


Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.”
(Psalm 42:8)
