A Prayer When You Need Some Answers From God

Lord, You have called us Your sons and daughters. You have allowed us to call You Abba, Father — our Daddy God — when You adopted us into Your family. That in itself carries us across the abyss between earth and Your heavenly places.

That, in itself, allows us a personal audience of one with the Maker of heaven and earth.

That, in itself, is amazing, and I thank You for making a way for us to know You — not just about You, but know You intimately.

What a miracle, Lord!

A Prayer to Release Praise in the Midst of Suffering

Lord, You are mighty to save, to deliver me from all my troubles. You hung the stars in place, You tell the ocean how far it can come — nothing is too hard for You; You do all things well.

A Prayer When Tenacity Runs Short And Giving Up Hovers

Lord, my righteousness is found in You — my hope, my peace. In Your Presence I find comfort and strength — I know I am not alone. It boggles the mind to think that the Creator of the Universe knows my name and searches my heart that He might know me.

This is beyond understanding, yet I know it to be true.

Sometimes just the touch of Your hand is all I need to know everything will be okay. I speak Your Name — Jesus … Jesus — and You come alongside me, taking my hand in Yours and leading me away from the treacherous path. You lift me and carry me over the turbulent waters. You hoist me onto the Rock high above the enemy’s tactics and keep me safe.

A Prayer When You Need to Hear From God

Lord, great is Your faithfulness! You are high and lifted up, exalted above the earth. You alone are worthy of praise.

May I never praise You only for the good things, but may I always praise You for who You are and because You deserve all praise. May I always have a thankful heart that is not contingent on circumstances, but is always grateful for Your love and abiding presence.
