Past Prayer 10

This entry is part of the “Past Prayer Series” .

I won’t be sharing the whole prayer, but here is an excerpt.

May 12, 2011

“…it was two opposing sides. A constant battle in my mind. I couldn’t grasp the truth because I didn’t know what was the truth. I wanted a lot to happen, but Gods answer was no. I needed to be obedient and stop accepting lies from the enemy. I repent for not trusting You and for not being faithful to You at that time in my life. I ask for Your forgiveness and I thank You for forgiving me. I pray that, You Father, may give me ears to hear Your voice, obedience to Your will and patience for Your answer. In Jesus’ name. Amen. “

I know that God has forgiven me. He can forgive you also 1 John 1:9 says,

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”

It is so easy to be guilt free. Just go to God with your all, humbly, and open.

O God,

You are a forgiving God,

You are a loving God,

You are a mighty God,

You God, You are amazing.

Nothing can separate me from Your love

Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.

God you are merciful, in You I put all my trust.

For You alone shall I live to please.

To You O God I give all my battles

Although my enemies try to destroy me, You continue to stand before me. You continue to stand behind me; You protect me from harm.

You God, You are my light and my salvation, You are my protector, You are my teacher, God You are my Father and I am Your child.

Your love is so great, no one can love any stronger.

You continue to teach me your commands, and Your love. This will be another great year for You are with me. You know the plans You have for me, plans of hope and a future, plans to prosper me and not to harm me.

The battles that come, only prove that You are a great God. You are awesome in all Your ways. You, God, are righteous, Holy, magnificent…The King of kings. I know this year is going to be great because I have You.

The peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. Glory to Your name Lord. Thank You for Your peace and mercy.

I shall be determined not to move away or depart from Your truth, O God.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

I hope you were able to relate to this past prayer 🙂 .

Have a blessed day!

Past Prayer 8

This entry is part of the “Past Prayer Series” .

January 6, 2011

Father God, I want to thank You again for waking me up this morning, giving me new mercies, and protecting my family & me through out the night. I repent for the sins I have committed against You in thought, word, and deed, I repent of my sins of omission and commission and of my sins seen and unseen. I ask for Your forgiveness and I thank You for Your forgiveness. If we confess our sins You are faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

Father, I ask that You help me to allow You to do Your will in my life. I ask that You may lead me in such a way that removes my selfish ways.

According to Your will God, use me that more people may see and hear about  Your love, grace, and mercy.

I know You have not given me a spirit of fear and that You instilled something great in me, because You are in me and You are great. All of Your creation is great. Teach me and help me to be confident in You, the Holy Spirit & myself > according to what You have given me.

Help me to have a loving and kind heart, but still be able to stand firm on your word that I may not tilt or stumble from the words or actions of others.

Thank You for Your word God, thank You for spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.

I ask that You may teach me, show me, help me to be patient and humble.

God I ask that You will do Your will in my life and protect my family and me.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hey! I recommend writing down your own prayers if you happen to notice that random thoughts start to pop in your mind when you are praying. Writing them down can sometimes allow you to focus on your prayer to God. Plus, it will help stop the random thoughts from popping into your conversation with God. This is why I’m able to share my prayers, because I wrote them down.

Prayer/poem of thanks

November 25, 2010

Thank You, God for forgiving me, and thank You for Your patience with me.

Because I was born again in You I am able to put away my old actions, thoughts,  and behaviors. I am able to forgive as You have forgiven me, and I am able to love You as You love me – although not (yet) to the fullest.

Thank You, God for your love that penetrates and heals all wounded, bruised, and broken hearts. Your love God is the strongest there is. It heals past hurts, and present hurts; it softens past and present pains.

You turned my wailing into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to You and not be silent. O Lord, my God I will give you thanks forever(Psalm 30:11-12).

Past Prayer 5

November 1, 2010 (morning)

Father God,

I want to thank You for waking me up this morning and protecting me and my family throughout the night. Today I ask that You may continue to do your will in my life. Help me to be less selfish. Help me to be open to your will whatever it may be. I ask that You may guide me with spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. I ask that You will continue to teach me how to be patient.

Thank You for all the blessings You have given to me and thank You for your mercies.

I ask that You may show me the college where You want me to continue my education. Help me to not get lost in what I want, so that I may stay focused on Your will. I ask that You may protect me and my family throughout the day. Thank You for being my solid rock. In Jesus name, Amen.

 

I think this is one of the shortest prayers in this series…

By this you can see that not all prayers have to be long and extensive.

If you have any comments or would like to add to the topic about prayer or short prayers, please feel free to do so. 🙂

Past Prayer 4

This entry is part of the “Past Prayer Series” .

October 23, 2010

Lord, thank You for waking me up this morning; that I may have the opportunity to make needed corrections in my attitudes and my habits. I repent of the sins I have committed against You in thought, word, and deed. I ask for Your forgiveness of these sins. I thank You for forgiving me and washing me clean.  I ask that You may help me to not stay on the computer for excessive amounts of time. I ask that You may help me to stay away from TV shows that subtly do more harm than good to my spirit.

I ask that You may continue to guide me on the path of Your will and that I may not change the direction in which you have put me in.

Help me to not focus on or think about silly matters. Help me to not think negatively of others or myself. Lord, help me to not focus on the opinions or thoughts of others but to respect them only to an extent.

Father, help me to not feel insecure about who I am and who You created me to be. Teach me that I may learn not to compare myself to others and teach me how to be strong in who I am, Who is in me, and who I was created to be.

God, I ask that You may continue to teach me right from wrong, according to Your commandments and Your Word. Help me, show me where I am able to study Your word and fellowship with others. Lord, help me to not be lazy in what I do and what I am supposed to do.

I ask that You may get rid of, eradicate, any spirit that You do not approve of in me. Help me to see, that I may not enter or allow any evil spirit to enter my mind. God, I ask that You may help me stay focused on You and only You. For when I focus on You and Your ways and Your teachings everything else will fall  in to place according to Your will.

I ask that You Lord, will give me spiritual understanding that I may comprehend what happens around me; that I may not judge Your people. Father, help me to be humble in all ways that I may not think of myself more highly than others. Help me to not be stubborn, continue to show me how to be patient. Help me to know Your voice that I may do what You tell me. Help me to not feel as though I know everything. Help me to not fall deeper into selfish ways that are taught in this world, help me to not become self-focused. Help me to not worry about material things. Teach me how to meditate on Your Word.

When others come to rattle my faith, I may continue to stand firm on Your truthful Word, Lord. Those who come against me with their words or actions may not succeed in their angry or evil intents because I have You God, my protector and my guard.

Thank You, for all the blessings and mercies and love that You have given me. Thank you for Your forgiveness. I thank You for revealing the truth behind TV shows that I know to stay away from them because they are far away from the life You intend for me to live. Thank You for revealing to me that most of the shows that I used watch never brought me closer to You but separated me from You.

I thank You for helping me to be more selfless, I thank You for Your guidance in my life. I thank You for protecting me from harm and danger. I thank You for giving me spiritual understanding that I may understand what goes on around me. I thank You for leading me in prayer, I thank You for listening to me when I pray. I thank You God for knowing my thoughts even before I came to You.

I thank You for guiding me on the path of Your will for Your glory. I thank You for helping me and showing me to be confident in who You created me to be. I was made in the image and likeness of You, the work of Your hands are great and pondered by many. I praise You, O God, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I thank You for revealing to me the uniqueness You placed in each and every one of Your children, in the body of Christ; we are all important and needed to do Your work.(Psalm 139:13-18; 1 Corinthians 12:24-26)

Thank You, Father, for showing me and giving me opportunities to remain in Your Word, to dwell in Your Word. Thank You for showing me and teaching me how to meditate on Your Word.

Father God, You are great and worthy to be praised.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

*Slightly revised.

I have to be honest, while I was typing this prayer out from my journal I became annoyed. In almost every paragraph I asked God for different things without praising Him. Not that what I asked for is not important; it’s just…my state of mind and my understanding about prayer has changed since October 2010. I can’t leave out the bit of guilt I felt when I realized the unrevised prayer could be an example of a wish list prayer; and I’m not a fan of wish list praying. BUT I’m glad I’m able to be thankful for everything I asked for because God did answer my prayers even though I was ignorant on the importance of giving thanks to God. There is nothing wrong with asking God for what you desire to have, there is nothing wrong with opening your heart to Him because He gives us more love than anyone else can ever give. Even though I felt guilty about this prayer, my joy abounds greater than the guilt I felt because God has answered my prayers, I’ve already seen the manifestation of what I’ve asked for and I still see it today. 😀

“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” – 1 John 5:14-15

Remember to give thanks for the blessing’s God has given you, and for the things you’ve asked Him for. In doing so, you are working your faith muscle in believing that what you’ve asked God for, He will give to you as long as you are in right standing with him and what you’ve asked for is in his will.
♥God
