1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 KJV 16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
This is a place for sharing your doubts and struggles. This is a place where you can ask for prayer or leave a prayer. Remember the prayer of a righteous person avails much! Talking to your heavenly Father should be your first thought.
James 5:13 Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises.
James 5:16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
What is Prayer?
The most basic definition of prayer is “talking to God.” Prayer is not meditation or passive reflection; it is direct address to God. It is the communication of the human soul with the Lord who created the soul. Prayer is the primary way for the believer in Jesus Christ to communicate his emotions and desires with God and to fellowship with God.
Prayer can be audible or silent, private or public, formal or informal. All prayer must be offered in faith (James 1:6), in the name of the Lord Jesus (John 16:23), and in the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:26). As the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia puts it, “Christian prayer in its full New Testament meaning is prayer addressed to God as Father, in the name of Christ as Mediator, and through the enabling grace of the indwelling Spirit” (“Prayer” by J. C. Lambert). The wicked have no desire to pray (Psalm 10:4), but the children of God have a natural desire to pray (Luke 11:1).
Prayer is described in the Bible as seeking God’s favor (Exodus 32:11), pouring out one’s soul to the Lord (1 Samuel 1:15), crying out to heaven (2 Chronicles 32:20), drawing near to God (Psalm 73:28, KJV), and kneeling before the Father (Ephesians 3:14)… more by GotQuestions
What is Fasting?
The New Testament nowhere commands followers of Jesus Christ to fast. In fact, even in the Old Testament, the Jews were only commanded to fast on one day out of the year, the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:27, 29, 32). Any religious leader who commands a fast or restricts certain foods is doing so without biblical warrant. However, Jesus sometimes fasted (Matthew 4:2), and He assumed that His followers would also fast on occasion (Matthew 6:16–18; Mark 2:20). So, if fasting is something that Christians do, what is the proper way to fast? What does the Bible say about how to fast?.. by Got Questions
1 Corinthians 10:13 12 If you think you are strong, you should be careful not to fall. 13 The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, he will also give you a way to escape so that you will be able to stand it.
Romans 5:1-5 1 Since we have been made right with God by our faith, we have peace with God. This happened through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 who through our faith has brought us into that blessing of God’s grace that we now enjoy. And we are happy because of the hope we have of sharing God’s glory. 3 We also have joy with our troubles, because we know that these troubles produce patience. 4 And patience produces character, and character produces hope. 5 And this hope will never disappoint us, because God has poured out his love to fill our hearts. He gave us his love through the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to us.
Show (add name here) (he, she) does not have the strength to overcome their addiction without You. Do not let them put confidence in others or themselves. Bring them to repentance and the submission of their heart to You. Let them see that You, God, are their strength to say no. Help them to put their hope in You to get through this.
Give them eyes to see and ears to hear the work of Your mercy in their life. Lord, we ask You to intervene when the cravings come. You alone know what it will take for them to say no. We ask You Lord to show them the futility and destruction of their addiction in truth.
Heal them and open the doors for the healing of their soul and their body. According to Your will in Jesus name, Amen
Our Father in heaven and of our Lord Jesus Christ, The enemy is always challenging my faith in my weakest times. I will lean on your strength and power. Lord, when I’m tired and at my weakest you are my only source of help. Help me to stand strong in your will, on your path in obedience and to let go of me. Help me to not become discouraged or give up when heavy times of testing come. Strengthen my faith.
Lord, forgive my sins and the sins of my enemies. Cleanse my heart daily. Give me courage to stand and wisdom to see the truth so I am not caught of guard. Lord Jesus, you have overcome and defeated Satan. The Truth, Jesus Christ, sets me free. We are asking for mercy. Thanks be to God who gets all the Glory and Honor! In Jesus name Amen
Prayer For a Nation
Lord God of heaven, the great and awesome God, You Who keeps Your covenant and loving kindness with those who love and obey You. We ask You hear our prayer. We confess our sins and the sins of our nation which we have committed against You alone. God bring those who are Yours to true repentance. Heavenly Father, help us to rejoice as we put our trust in You. Give us a heart to love Your holy name and be joyful in You. You are our shield and defender.
Guide us Holy Spirit in the ways and steps of Christ. Give us boldness to profess Your word of Truth. We will choose to surrender our life to You daily in order to grow closer to You heavenly Father. To pursue You to know You and Your Son deeper and deeper. We need greater understanding in our heart of the hope to which we have been called. To know how rich and glorious are the blessings God promised to His holy people.
We have determined to know nothing except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. And the greatness of Your power to us who believe. The great power and strength that raised Christ from the dead. Who is now at the right hand of the Father in heaven. Nothing is chaotic or falling apart. Because God put all things and all rule under the power and authority of Christ. Thank You, our Lord God, as you continue to reveal to us how things are lining up with Your promise, You are coming suddenly.
Worshipping the Creator
We ask for forgiveness of our idolatry. Loving ourselves and lusting after the ways of the world. We turned from worshipping the Creator to worshipping the created. Hear the plea of Your children.
Comfort those who seek Your kingdom first. The Lord, our Shepherd, help us not to fear in this time of great turmoil. Lead us in Your wisdom. Give us wisdom, knowledge, and the courage to know what to do. And then stand for Your righteousness for the sake of Your glory.
Your remnant is eagerly awaiting Your coming for Your bride. As we look, keep our hearts and minds stayed on the task at hand. Speaking Your truth and in truth, against the lies.
We give You thanks that You provide our needs. Lord Jesus Christ, we give thanks that You made a way for us to be able to come boldly to the throne of grace to find mercy and help in our time of need.
When we are afraid, we will trust in the Lord.
Come Lord Jesus, Amen
