a blessing for protection and fulfillment


May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!

May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!

May he send you help from the sanctuary and give you support from Zion!

May he remember all your offerings. 
May he regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! 

Selah, we praise you Lord.

May he grant you your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans!

May we shout for joy over your salvation. 
May we, in the name of our God, set up our banners!

May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!

Amen

for refugees and victims of war


Lord God,

No one is a stranger to you
And no one is ever far from your loving care.

In your kindness, watch over refugees and victims of war,
Those separated from their loved ones,
Young people who are lost,
And those who have left home or who have run away from home.

Bring them safely to the place where they long to be,
And help us always to show your kindness
to strangers and to all in need.

Amen

when panic attacks come


Dear God,

I come before You to lay my panic and anxiety at Your feet.

When I’m crushed by my fears and worries, remind me of Your power and Your grace.

Fill me with Your peace as I trust in You and You alone.

I know I can’t beat this on my own, but I also know that I have You, Lord, and You have already paid the ultimate price to carry my burdens.

For this I thank you, Amen.

when we are burned out


Dear Lord,

I am tired, burned out and in need of encouragement.

In Your goodness, help me to grow in faith and hope each day.

I confess my trust in you and I release control of my life to you.

Please give me a vision of the future that you have prepared for me.

Lift me out of my depression, and hold me close as I struggle. 

As we walk together, help me to place my worries and doubts in your hands. 

Replace the dark cloud of depression with a joy that is found you alone.

Thank You for my life and for all of the unseen blessings in it.

I praise you for being with me always.

as we confront our fears


Heavenly Father,

When I feel crushed by my own worries,

Lift my mind and help me to see the truth.

When fear grips me tight and I feel I cannot move,

Free my heart and help me to take things one step at a time.

When I can’t express the turmoil inside,

Calm me with Your quiet words of love.

I choose to trust in You, each day, each hour, each moment of my life.

I know deep down that I, in Your grace, have been forgiven.

I have been restored by Your sacrifice.

You have set me free.

Amen

a prayer of discovery

Dear God,

I am so afraid to open my clenched fists!

Who will I be when I have nothing left to hold on to?

Who will I be when I stand before you with empty hands?

Please help me to gradually open my hands and to discover that I am not what I own, but what you want to give me.

And what you want to give me is love, unconditional, everlasting love.

Amen.

letting go of the past


Lord, 

I kneel before You in humble submission and pray that in Your mercy and kindness You would help me to simply let go of all the fears and worries, problems and doubts, guilt and disappointments that seem to be filling my heart and mind so often, during the course of a day.

Fill my hurting soul with Your love and peace I pray. Fill the emptiness and pain that is tearing my life asunder. Lord, You know what is in my heart and why I am going through this time of fear and worry. Help me Lord, to take every thought captive, to hand it over to You as it rears up in my mind, and help me to replace it with thoughts and words of Scripture that tell of Your great might and wonderful power.

Lord, You have told us to think about whatever is lovely and pure and holy and good, and I pray that You would help me to turn the eyes of my heart upon Jesus and look to Him day by day. In Jesus' name I pray,

Amen.

make me a vessel


Dear Lord,

As I follow you on this divine journey, I ask that You would use me as a vessel to pour out mercy and love without measure on others. And that You would use me to encourage others to show the same mercy and forgiveness to others. 

Lord I know that in and of myself I have nothing that commends me for this special ministry of mercy and encouragement. Without Christ I can do nothing but in Him I can do all things - for He gives me the strength. 

May I be pliable as clay in the Potter's hand. As You to shape me into the person that You would have me be, I pray that You might use me in Your way and in Your time to Your praise and glory. In Jesus name I pray.

Amen
