A Prayer for This Day.


Sometimes you are tired...

Sometimes you just grow weary in your own mind… you want to pray, but you could just use a little creativity.

This is a prayer for your ‘sometime’--praying Scripture back to God:

O loving Heavenly Father,

Hear my prayer for I will be ‘less than’ today if I do not connect with you. First Lord, this is the day that you have made--so I choose to rejoice in it!1 You are my strength…my rock, my fortress, and my savior ~ my protection.2 You are God, my only safe haven.3

Search me, O God and know my heart…point out anything in me that offends you,4

[be still a moment… is there anything you should say ‘sorry’ for?]

I know that the psalmist said you will not hear my prayer if I have sin in my heart,5 so forgive me, Lord, and create in me a clean heart, O God.6

I want to be right in your eyes. Fill me anew with your Spirit.7

Lord, I ask you for your wisdom--your insight, foresight, knowledge and direction; help me see things as you do today. As you blessed the life of Jabez, I pray that you would bless me indeed8 and show me where I can bless someone else as well. Rather than worrying about what is before me or around me in the world, remind me to look up and pray.

I pray for those who are far from you, who do not even know they are lost without you. O God, draw them to yourself, I pray. Put someone in their path today to point them to you, for you alone are Truth. [say their names]

I pray O God for those who need your healing touch today. [names] You are a miracle-working God who commands us to pray continually because you are listening, you never forget our prayers and you love us. You never grow weary of hearing from us and you do not fall asleep on us either.9

God, I lift up those who need your protection [names]

I lift up those who need your strength and peace, including me! [names]

I lift up those who are grieving and lonely [names]

I lift up those who are caught in addiction…set them free! [names]

I pray protection for our military men and women--[names]

I pray for those who are in need, those who are being persecuted for Your name, O God, have mercy.

And for our country, I pray - O God, draw people back to you! Forgive us for how we have turned our backs on you and your ways. Draw our president and vice president and other elected officials to yourself, humble their thinking and change their hearts, Lord God, to see things as you do.

Lord, I commit myself to you. I want to honor you God, with my thoughts and words and deeds. “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”10 Help me be a little more like Jesus today than I was yesterday.

And now Lord, I just gotta look around and say thank you. Lord, I thank you for my eyesight, my hearing and my mind. Lord, I thank you for Heaven one day, freedom, the Word of God, ______, ______,_______.... Remind me all day long to thank you for the good things I see and people I encounter--o, how I want to be a grateful person, dear Lord. Remind me to give thanks in all circumstances because I know this is your will for me.11

Okay, well I guess that is all for now, God. Thank you for hearing my prayer--and thanks that I can pray all of these things in the power that is in the name of Jesus, Amen! Talk to you later, Lord, I am sure of it.

Your child.
