Prayer, May I….

Father,

May I wake every morning with a passion and a hunger to do your will.

May my heart be so full of gratitude for what you have done for me, and full of love for you as my Father, savior, friend,… my God, that your will is what I constantly seek.

May I never be satisfied with anything less than everything that you have call me to be and do.

While often those in the world boldly proclaim daily their love for drugs, sex, money, and/or people who are less than you have created them to be, may I never shrink from boldly proclaiming every day of my life my love for You through my words and deeds.

May I love others as you have loved me and may my love for them cause me to proclaim truth as you lead me to.

May I go to bed each night satisfied with how I have lived each day.

May I never take for granted that you gave all for me and may I live in light of it!

I pray this in the mighty names of Jesus!!

Amen!

 

Prayer for clear thinking

Free

As I am going through this season of testing, one of the things that happened to me is I soon became unable to think clearly.  Everything was on my mind all of the time.

My ability to trust God, left me as I tried to figure out how it would all work out.

And then I had a friend who (bless her) prayed against confused thinking.

I didn’t notice for about 20 minutes but I was able to be positive again and think clearly….it was wonderful!!

I believe that the enemy comes against our thinking because if we can’t think straight we cant do all that God is calling us to do.

I was reminded that I need to

 

destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God,

and take every thought captive to obey Christ.

– 2 Corinthians 10:5

 

If you are struggling to think straight, know that you are under attack. I encourage you to pray with me.

Father God,

I come to you and ask for you to give me clear thinking. 

Help me to separate the truth of what you are calling me to do from the lies of the enemy.

Do not allow the enemy to cloud my thinking.

Help me to stay close to you and to easily recognize your voice. 

Cast all negative thinking from me, as I know it is not from you. 

Help we to remember to examine my thinking often, so as to be able to cast any away that not of you.

In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen

A prayer of trust

 God, I know Your timing is perfect, and I trust You completely with my life and my circumstances. Lord, thank You for providing for the needs I have right now. And thank You for the blessings that are yet to come. Even if I never see the fulfillment of my heart’s desire, I will still honor You with my life. I pray for peace, patience and perseverance – as I put my hope in You. Thank You for comforting me during this time of waiting and for leading me in the way to everlasting life. You are my portion, Lord, and I am fully satisfied. Amen.

A Prayer of Surrender

Father God

I realize that I haven’t done everything right, i realize that I have wasted time trying to do it my own way.

All you have ever wanted from me is my trust, and yet I struggle.

I think about the people that have let me down, and I have projected those fears on you.

As a result I have a hard time believing that You forever have the best of intentions for me. 

That I can trust You fully and completely to lead and guide me.

But when I think of how loving, kind, and merciful that you have been to me, I cannot help but want to be one who walks closely with you, fully trusting you to lead me where You want me to be.

So change my heart God,  make me into the fiercely loyal child that you want me to be.

Remind me that this life is not my own.

Help me to daily follow your lead, as I daily choose to lay it all down at the foot of the Cross.

I make a choice to trust you fully for my future,

And the future of those I love.

I lay all of my fears, worries, struggles, and doubts down.

And I say with all my heart

You lead, Ill follow.

In Jesus Name I pray.

Amen!
