Prayer for Romans 14

Choose Verse

Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times when I have not acted in godly love towards my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who may be weaker in the faith than I and who may hold to some practices and biases from which I have been set free. Keep me from developing a critical spirit towards other members of Your Body, and help me not to do anything from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility of heart, count others more significant than myself - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.”
(Romans 14:1)
Source: Verse of the day for Romans 14:1

Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You for the freedom I have in Christ.. that we are not under the restrictions of the Law but under the freedom of grace. I pray that I would make the choices in my life that honour You in all I do. Help me to be mindful of the needs of others, who may be weaker in the faith or do not enjoy the breadth of liberty I have in Him. Give me a sensitive spirit to the needs of others and keep me from any criticism of believers who make different choices in the non-essentials of the Christian faith. Keep me low at the cross and broken before You for His name's sake - in Jesus' name, I pray, AMEN. 

“One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.”

Loving Father, it is my chief complaint that I do not love and serve You as I ought. Help me to accept that I can only do those things that please You as I decrease, and You increase in my life. Keep me from falling into any legalistic mindset or from abusing the liberty I have in Christ through wrong choices. Please help me shed all hidden pride and all appearances of self-importance so that I may be used by You - so that whatever choices I make in the 'non-essential' of Christian life, I may glorify You in thought, word and deed - in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

Prayer For Life Of Purpose

Heavenly Father I thank You that Your perfect plans and purposes can never be frustrated and that You are working quietly in the background in order that Your divine will continues to progress towards its ultimate goal, as year succeeds to year.

I praise You that You have given me life and made me a new creation in Christ and thank You Father, that You have a special purpose for my life too. Thank You that by Your grace You are carrying out Your purposes in the lives of all Your children - that Christ is all and in all and I pray that this may be realized in my life too.

Enable and equip me I pray, to fulfill the plan and purpose that you have for me to do and I ask that You would use each gift and every talent that You have graciously given to me, to Your praise and glory.

Help me to fulfill all that You would have me do in my life and may I be obedient to Your voice as I seek to carry out Your purpose for my life. May I rejoice evermore and pray without ceasing.

May I give thanks in all things and hearken to the voice of Your Holy Spirit and may I hold fast to that which is good and abstain from all forms of evil – knowing that this is Your will for my life.. in Jesus name I pray,


“For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.”

Prayer for Personal Accountability

Lord Jesus it says in Your Word, examine Yourself to see it you are in the faith – Lord I realise that this is not talking to unbelievers but to all of us who are Your children, in Christ Jesus. Lord help me to examine myself, and all that I am, and all that I am learning from You and Your word, so that I truly may say with conviction :-I know in Whom I have believed and am walking in the path on which He has placed me.

Keep me also from critical thoughts of others, and prevent me Lord, from having a spirit of control – or by pretending to hold others accountable to You when the beam in my own eye is greater than the speck that is in my brothers’ eyes.

Keep me humble before Your throng of grace and may I walk the way of the cross day be day - with the Spirit as my teacher and the Word of God washing me clean. Thank You for all my Christian friends and brothers and keep us all walking close to You in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name I pray,

“So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
(Romans 14:12)

Guide Me Through All Of Life’s Obstacles

Help me Lord Jesus to keep my whole focus on You. Life is becoming so hard and difficult that at times it is not easy to keep the eyes of my heart looking to Jesus as I know I should – for without Him I can do nothing…At times Lord I feel that I am losing my way in life but I know that as I rest in You, I will hear the gentle promptings from Your Spirit saying, “this is the way – walk in it…”

Sometimes Lord, I confess that when things get tough I try in my own strength to sort out my own problems - and work out what I ought to do myself, without turning to You first… and inevitably I seem to make the wrong choice…I know that You have a plan for my life – and I also know that living in this world is not easy – but I also know that my sufficiency is in You and that Your strength is made perfect as I rest in You – help me to apply this truth in my life.

Guide me Lord through all the obstacles of life and help me with the many choices I have to make on a daily basis. May I truly learn to look to You as my Guide and Strength, in Jesus name I pray,

“Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.”
(Romans 14:13)

Loving Father, keep me I pray from trying to maintain Church unity at the expense of the truth of the gospel of grace, but also keep me from allowing the beautiful freedom I have by grace through faith in Christ, from criticising others whose consciences lead them in a different direction. Help me therefore to make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification – for I desire to glorify Your name in all I say and do, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

For Families With An Alcoholic Father

Loving heavenly Father, You put us into families and set a father as the leader and role model for each family… but Lord there are many families that are being torn apart by a husband and father that has become addicted to alcohol.

Knowing the devastating nature of this disease, I pray that You would prompt each one to turn away from this evil habit to become the responsible husband and father that You desire each one to be.

Lord we know that there are many alcoholic husbands that abuse their wives both physically and emotionally and that many children are also placed in danger, due to abuse from an alcoholic father – and also Lord, that such drinking habits can often leave families with insufficient money to live on.

Protect all those that are vulnerable from all forms of abuse and convict such men of the responsibilities of being loving husbands and dependable fathers – and Lord we pray that they turn from their evil ways to turn to the Lord Jesus – knowing that only in You is true freedom found.

Thank You Father – I commit all families that are in this position into Your safe-keeping,


“Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.”
(Romans 14:19)

For Those Who Feel Guilt After An Abortion

Loving Lord, I recently had an abortion because I was pregnant and did not want to have another baby – but since going through the abortion Lord, I find that I am beset about by guilt and my heart feels as if it is torn in two.

Lord You have promised to be close to those whose hearts are breaking – I know that what I did was wrong, because You are the Lord of life, but Father You are also the great God of comfort and the Comforter that has promised to be with us always and to comfort us in our distresses.

Lord I have just read the prayer ‘I Had An Abortion,’ and I thank You that You died to pay the price for all my sins, including this abortion. Lord I know that any deep wound takes much time to heal, but I pray Lord that You would start to mend my broken heart today and to soothe my smarting soul.

Give me the comfort that only comes from You to face the future, knowing that in Your sight I am pure and forgiven– and thank You for Your great assurance that there is no sin that is so bad that You are unwilling to forgive.

Thank You in Jesus name,


“Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.”
(Romans 14:22)
