Welcome to Prayer For...
Finding the right
words can be hard,
we hope this helps.
Prayer For Loss
Today Father, as I grieve for the loss of my friend, I find comfort in the fact that You too grieve for him. You have watched soul after soul after soul fall prey to the enemy’s lies.
Thank You, Lord, for opening my ears to Your words, my eyes to Your truths and my heart to Your message. Thank You for allowing me to understand what truly awaits the ones who choose not to come. Thank You for the ones who sought me out to share the glorious news of eternal life through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
Father forgive us for being selfish with Your message of hope. Open our eyes to see the people of this world through Your eyes, so that we would move with urgency, carrying Your Banner of Hope, until the whole world hears. We ask these things in the Sweet Name of Jesus, Amen. – Amy Duncan
Prayer For Family
O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son. Look with compassion on the whole human family. Take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts. Break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love. Work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth, that in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Prayer For Illness and Healing
Heavenly Father, Your word says that we are healed by Your stripes, so I pray right now for divine healing. Please see the needs of Your children so that they may be restored to health and be healed. I pray against all illnesses right now, both mentally and physically. Father, we look to You as the source of our healing in Jesus’ Name. I thank you in advance for the divine healing that which You have graced Your children. Continue to have Your way within our lives. Amen.
Prayer For Substance Abuse
O blessed Lord, you ministered to all who came to you: Look with compassion upon all who have lost their health and freedom through addiction. Restore to them the assurance of your unfailing mercy; remove from them the fears that beset them; strengthen them in the work of their recovery; and to those who care for them, give patient understanding and persevering love.
Prayer For Protection
We live in a world where hurt seems inevitable, whether physical, emotional, mental, or even spiritual. I know not everyone has my best interest at heart and that You speak of man’s greatest enemy, constantly seeking to destroy us.
Father, I pray for Your gracious hand of protection in every part of my life when I leave home, in the relationships that I enter, and in my day-to-day life.
Would You keep me and those I love safely in Your hand and give me discernment in situations that I should remove myself from and the courage to do so? In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer For Finances
My heart feels burdened with the responsibilities ahead of me. At times it feels as if I will never get out of this cycle of anxiety, as I wonder how I will pay my bills or save up for things I need. You know my needs, Lord, and You are not restricted by finances or obstacles as I often am. I ask that You provide a way not only for me to settle what I owe and provide where finances are needed, but help me find a way to sustain providence for those needs, Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer For Forgiveness
God of forgiveness, My heart can be so deceiving. So easily I count the wrong of others against me and dwell in unforgiveness. Yet my greatest error is my sin against You. You who have all the right to hold it against me, but You made a way for me to be forgiven, through trust in Jesus, Your Son. I pray that You will give me sincere remorse for my sin and that You will extend Your forgiveness and kindness over my sin.
Help me to feel the freedom of Your forgiveness in my life.
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer For Family Reconciliation
God of Restoration, I place my family before You right now, asking that Your love embraces our hearts and minds. Since the beginning, families have been dysfunctional, but I know that You can and have restored them. I pray that the same blessing of restoration and peace reaches my family. I pray that my family will be restored to the standard that You want for us. I pray for an Esau and Jacob restoration over my family right now. Let hate be consumed by love. Thank You Lord, Amen.
Prayer For Guidance and Wisdom
God of guidance, I am at a crossroad, unsure of what steps to take next. I feel so anxious about making a mistake. I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but You do. That is why I pray that You will guide me in the direction I am meant to go. Give me wisdom, peace of mind, and bring trustworthy people into my life who are wise advisors and helpful friends. Help me to trust that You go before me, increasing my dependency on You.
Prayer For Better Relationship with God
Heavenly Father, I know it’s only human to doubt whether You are there or if You are real at times. People speak of their relationship with You, but Lord, I want to know You for myself. Sometimes I don’t know how that could even be possible. The knowledge that You, the God of the universe, cares about me can’t be fathomed, yet You do. I don’t know all the answers, but I desire to know You, Lord. Help me see You, as You are.
Teach me about Your character, who You are to me as a Father, a Friend, but most of all my Savior. Reveal Yourself to me, Lord, that I might grow in relationship with You, knowing that it is true, and it is personal, between You and me. Surround me with people who know You and who will help me draw closer to You.
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer For the Day
Prayer for who Protect
Lord, be with those who defend us and those to weak to defend themselves. Be with them, build a hedge of protection around them, comfort them in the difficult times. Be with them when they feel alone. Watch over the families, comfort them. Grant the strong friendships to stand with them, guard their hearts and minds from danger. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
Prayer For Sleep
While it may seem you are alone, People all over are praying with you. God will never leave or forsake you.
Prayer For Loneness
Lord, I am alone. In a city of millions I am alone. It seems I am the only one without someone. Lord what do I do, I feel empty. Lord fill my emptiness, help me to find a good friend. Take this burden away. Set me on a path to bring good people into my life, help me to see the opportunities you provide. Help me Lord, I cannot fix this alone. In Jesus name, Amen.
Prayer For Help with Anxiety and Worry
Prayer For Unemployment and Job
Heavenly Father, we remember before you those who suffer want and anxiety from lack of work. Guide the people of this land to use our public and private wealth that all may find suitable and fulfilling employment, and receive just payment for their labor.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Prayer For Help with Depression
Loving Father, It feels as if I am in a constant tug of war with myself. The side that knows there are hope and life beyond these hopeless feelings, and the part of me that feels like there is no use in trying. You have created me purposely, but I am struggling to believe that. My thoughts feel darkened, and my body is exhausted.
Father, I pray that You will revive my spirit from within and renew my thoughts. Give me eyes to see the hope that You provide me with, hope that can overcome my greatest battles.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
Prayer For Women
Righteous God, I thank you for all mothers and pray that You keep them under your countenance. I thank you for all the mothers who You have been present, comforting their children in these evil days. I thank you for all the mothers, both biological and spiritual, who are clothed with strength and dignity. Thank you for the mothers who open their mouth with wisdom and whom the teaching of kindness is on their tongue. I declare that her children shall rise up and call her blessed; everything that her hand touches shall be nurtured with grace and love! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Prayer For Marriage
Dear God, There is a tear in my heart where there should be unity. It feels as if our problems have become greater than our initial vow to stick through them no matter what. It breaks my heart to have reached this point. That is why I pray for Your intervention in our relationship. I pray that You will make whole what has been broken for so long. Restore joy where it has been replaced with a complaint, renew love and forgiveness in us beyond our human capabilities, that can only be done through You. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer For Students
O Eternal God, bless all schools, colleges, and universities [and especially ___________], that they may be lively centers for sound learning, discovery, and the pursuit of wisdom; and grant that those who teach and those who learn may find you to be the source of all truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer For the Poor and Neglected
Almighty and most merciful God, we remember before you all poor and neglected persons whom it would be easy for us to forget: the homeless and the destitute, the old and the sick, and all who have none to care for them. Help us to heal those who are broken in body or spirit and to turn their sorrow into joy. Grant this, Father, for the love of your Son, who for our sake became poor, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer For Town, and Nation
Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favor and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues.
Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
