DEVOTIONAL PRAYERS FOR CHRISTIANS


"In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the LORD..."~Isaiah 6:1


We have to get our eyes off others before we can have a full vision of
Jesus. In the year that King Uzziah died, Isaiah says, I saw the LORD.
His eyes and hopes had been upon the might and victorious earthly
leader, and with his death all these hopes had sunk in despair. But
the stars come out when the lights of earth fade.
It was then Isaiah's
true vision and life began.
 

It is not enough to see Jesus along with other things and persons.
What we truly need is to have Him fill all our vision, all our sky, all
our heart, all our plans, and all our future. What He wants from us
is "first love," that is, the supreme place; and He cannot really be
anything to us satisfactorily until He is everything. He is able to fill
every capacity of our being and without displacing any rightful affection
or occupation, yet so blend with all, so control all, so become the very
essence of all thought and delight that we can truly say, "For me to live
is Christ," for "The love of Christ constaineth me," shuts me up and in
from everything else as a pent-up torrent in its narrow course, to live
not unto myself but "unto Him that loved me and gave Himself for me."


Prayer:


"Holy Spirit, bring us our transfiguration,
take us apart to our Mount of

vision, let Moses and Elijah pass,

and let us see no man save Jesus only,

- The Most Holy One.

Thru Jesus Christ our Lord, we pray. Amen."

devotional,SPRINGS IN THE VALLEY, page 25-26, by Mrs. Charles Cowman

PRAYER FOR OVERCOMING POWER


Abba-Father, I ask you to baptize me afresh again
and again with the precious Holy Spirit, - Ruach haKOdesh. Help me
to walk in victory day by day in the overcoming power of the Holy
Spirit. May the fire of Your Presence burn away anything in my
life or nature that is unChristlike. May that same fire that purifies
give zeal and grace sufficient to run the race to the very finish and
proclaim Your Truth faithfully. May Your precious Holy Spirit be a
fire in my bones for Your honor and glory. - In the precious Name
of The Lord Jesus Christ, my Savior and King. Amen.

"Breathe on me, Breath of GOD, til I am WHOLLY Thine:

Til all this earthly part of me glows with Thy fire Divine."
~ Amy Carmichael, missionary to India

Psalm 119:11

Thy Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee.




PRAYER for dealing with distractions:


Abba-Father, in the merciful name of Your Son and my Savior, - The LORD Jesus Christ, - please help us and enable us to be rid of all distractions when we pray, worship, praise, or read or meditate on Your Holy Word. Help us, - help me, - - help us to consecrate, concentrate, and sanctify our thoughts and affections holy, wholly, holy unto Thee, O LORD, in the Mighty, Holy, and Merciful Name of The LORD Yeshua Messiah, - The Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. Please grant this grace we pray, in Jesus' Name.



PRAYER FOR PROPER AND WISE DIET

When Daniel was in training for the king's service,he took an uncompromised stand that he would not defile himself with the king's rich food and wine. Instead, he asked for a diet of vegetables and water which he and the three Hebrew children were allowed to substitute for the rich dainties and the wine. Daniel and the three Hebrew children were found to be ten-times better in every matter of wisdom and understanding than all the magicians and wise men in the kingdom. (!)



A Prayer:


"Help me, O LORD, not to defile my physical body.
Help me to eat properly, both physically and spiritually,
in the merciful mighty name of The Lord Jesus Christ. Amen."

"Help me not to compromise the standards of GOD's

Word which has established guidelines for a healthy
and meaningful life, in Christ Jesus, The LORD. Amen."



PRAYER FOR ABUNDANT SPIRITUAL LIFE


Abba Father, I want to thank You for the gift of Your Son,
the Lord Jesus Christ, Who has become my Savior and
Redeemer-King. I ask that all the benefits of Jesus as Savior
and Lord be real in my life today and always. Let Jesus be
to me a refuge of safety, peace, and protection from the
storms of life because He is, in truth, my Refuge. I ask also
for wisdom and authority to overcome every work of the
enemy because I know that Jesus is my Wisdom and all
authority is only in Him. I ask for provision for every need.
 

 Most of all I ask for the abundant spiritual life. Full and
free salvation for body, soul, and spirit. Deliverance where
I need it, healing and resurrection power in my life,
today and everyday, I pray in the wonderful Name of
the Lord Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord. Amen.

According as His divine power hath given unto us all things

that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge
of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue. ~ 2 Peter 1:2-4



PRAYER FOR INTERCESSION
for children and the schools . . .


Father-God, we come to You on behalf of the schools and the
children that are subject to them.
 

We pray for a purification of the subject materials and
cirriculum. In Jesus Name we rebuke the infiltration of evil
that has flooded the schools, their text books and ungodly
subjects. We rebuke teachings on evolution, 'safe sex,'
'alternate lifestyles,' homosexuality, false religions, New
Age, witchcraft, wicca, Hary Potter materials, and any other
evil subject that is taught or promoted. In the Name of the
Lord Jesus Christ we bind all these evils being taught to
children. Especially that which is meant to deceive or
destroy their faith in Christ.
 

Father, send laborers into the schools, - godly teachers,
counsellors, principals, and superintendents to challenge and
change ungodly subjects and cirriculum in all the schools.
May the children be taught well the subjects that will truly
help them and enable them in life. May they be taught good
and godly principles that are founded upon Biblical truth
and morality.
 

Save the children, O LORD. Root-out the evil infiltration
that infests so many schools throughout the world ! - This
we pray in the Mighty, Holy Name of the King of kings,
The LORD Jesus Christ. Amen.

And all they children shall be taught of the Lord: and great

shall be the peace of thy children. ~ Isaiah 54:13



PRAYER AGAINST UNBELIEF


Father in Heaven, I ask You to grant me a heart free of unbelief,
that I may praise You in Spirit and in Truth. You are the GOD of
the impossible, - the GOD of the supernatural. Help me to see
the things that I hope and pray for by faith. I renounce all doubt,
hopelessness, and fear, in Jesus Name. I believe You, GOD of Heaven
and earth, that You can do anything, heal any disease, mend any
relationship, provide for any need and move any mountain of difficulty
out of my life and bring FULL and COMPLETE VICTORY, in Jesus
Name ! Open my eyes that I will always see Your chariots of fire
upon my hills and mountains of difficulties and trials. ~ This I ask
in the holy, mighty Name of The Lord Jesus Christ, my Savior
and King. Amen.

Behold...the just shall live by faith. ~ Habakkuk 2:4




WARFARE PRAYER

Abba-Father, I ask that all attacks and plans of the enemy against
me be stopped IN JESUS NAME ! That whatever is hidden be exposed
to the light. Help me to see and discern the traps and snares of the
enemy and his tricks to keep me from my calling and to do Your
perfect Will. Stop the way against the enemy who would seek to
hinder or do me harm.

Abba-Father, I surrender myself to You totally and trust that You

will protect me. Plase cancel every assignment of men and devils
that are against me. I thank You for the precious Blood of The
LORD Jesus Christ, The Lamb of GOD, that covers me and all that
pertains to me this day and every day ! Amen.

fullness, now and always. - This I pray in the wonderful, merciful
name of The Name above EVERY name: The LORD Jesus Christ,
my Savior. Amen.

No weapon that is formed against me shall prosper: for THIS is

the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and my righteousness
is of The LORD Jesus Christ. ~ Isaiah 54:17



PRAYER FOR RIGHT USE OF FINANCES

May I never be greedy or foolish or selfish.
 

Help me, O LORD, to always be grateful for what You supply. I trust
You to always supply every need in the abundance of my Lord Jesus
Christ, YahOvah-Yireh, my Provider.
Help me to be trustworthy in handling whatever income or offering
I am given, through Jesus Christ, my LORD. Amen.

The tithes and offerings belong to GOD. - Yes, even 100%, - for

words that I speak unot you, - THEY are Spirit and they are Truth. ~John 6:63

I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day:

the night cometh when no man can work. ~ John 9:4

IMITATING CHRIST


Romans 15:1-8


Dear Father, God of all steadfast love,

May the strength You give us be used to bear with the failings of

those who are weak, not to please ourselves, but to please our
neighbor for his good, to build him up.

In this let us imitate Jesus, Your Son, who did not please

himself, but lived as it was written of him, "The reproaches of
those who reproached You fell on me."

May You, our Father, the God of steadfastness and encouragement, grant us Christians to live in such harmony with one another, in full accord with Jesus Christ, that together we may with one voice glorify You, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.


In the name of Jesus and according to His command. Amen.


To bless you with prayer...and the Word of GOD. . .




AN OVERCOMING PRAYER For Christians


Dear and Gracious Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that You are worthy of all honor, glory and praise. I am thankful for the victorious work of Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ at Calvary for me and for all of Your children. I appropriate His victory for myself now as I willingly surrender every area of my life to Your good and gracious will.
 

Thank You for the forgiveness and righteousness that has been given to me as Your adopted child. I trust in Your protection and provision daily. I know that Your love for me never ceases and never fails.
I rejoice in Your victory, O Lord, over all the principalities and powers in the heavenlies. In faith I stand in Your victory and commit myself to live obediently for You, my
 

Sovereign King and Redeemer and LORD.
I desire that my fellowship with You become greater.
Reveal to me those things that grieve You and that enables the enemy to secure any advantage in my life. I need the Holy Spirit's powerful ministry in my life; bringing conviction of sin, repentance of heart, strengthening my faith and increasing perseverance in resisting temptation and all sin.
 

Help me to die to self and walk in the victory of the new creation You have provided for me. Let the fruits of the Holy Spirit flow out of my life so that You will be glorified through my life in every way, every day.

I know that it is Your will that I should stand firm and resist

all of the enemy's work against me. Help me to discern the

attacks upon my thoughts and emotions. Enable me to stand

upon Your Word and resist all the accusations, distortions

and condemnations that are hurled against me by the evil one.


It is my desire to be transformed through the renewing of my mind, so that I will not compromise with the ways of the world, or yield to the enemy's attacks, but be completely obedient to Your will.

 

I draw upon those spiritual resources that You have provided me and I attack the strongholds and plans of the enemy that have been put in place against me. I command in the name of The LORD YESHUA, The Messiah, - The Lord Jesus Christ, - The Holy One of Israel, - that the enemy must release my mind, will, emotions and body completely. They have been yielded to the Lord Jesus and I belong to Him.
 

Abba-Father, my Lord and my GOD, enable me to become the person You created me to be. Help me as I pray to be strong in faith. Show me how to apply Your Word in my life each day and every moment. I know that I wear the full armor of God when I am committed to and stand firmly upon Your Word. I want You to have the supreme place in my life, - spirit, soul, mind & body.

I surrender myself completely to You, O Lord. You are always faithful and You extend Your grace to me constantly, even when I do not realize it. I claim Your promise of forgiveness and cleansing in its fullness. In faith, I receive the victory today that you have already put in place for me. I do this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, my Savior, with a grateful heart. AMEN
