A Prayer For Protection

{Based on Psalm 17}

Hear my cause, O Lord; listen to my cry for help. I have examined by heart, my prayer is honest; I’m on the level. Father, You are holy and just. You see things as they are whereas we see them as they appear to be. Your eyes can detect a bad motive or an evil heart. If You try my faith; if you put me to the test, there must be a reason. If You are testing my son, there is a reason, a good reason. Our problem at present does not involve others, it is not about what others have done to us. No one has mistreated us–our problem pertains to our faith and our personal walk with You. Can we trust You in the darkness? Can we believe in You when heaven is silent and our prayers are not being answered? I call upon You to break the silence–speak to us. In some wondrous or simple way, reaffirm Your love for us. Perhaps it would be a simple recollection of the cross and what Jesus did for us there. Although He was abused and mistreated, He did not respond in kind, He did not curse His enemies or retaliate in any form. During heavens silence, He showed Himself weak in order to save us. Father, keep the cross ever on our minds. It should be the only reminder we need of Your love for us. Please guard my son, hide him in the shadow of your wings. I am not asking for riches or honor, only for his peace of mind. Jesus was surrounded by those who hated Him. They mocked and ridiculed Him as He suffered for our sins. We are surrounded by friends who love us and our praying for us. Deliver us from our fears and fill us with Your peace. Someday LORD, and it will not be long, we will awaken and see Your face–when we do, we will see righteousness and peace and our hearts with be satisfied. In Jesus name, we pray! Amen.

A Prayer Praise and Commitment

PrayerPoster-LargeFather, keep me from pride and arrogance. In spite of my many failures, pride continues to be a thorn in my flesh. Please Father, help me understand that I am the chief of sinners so that I will not to look down on anyone else. I do not do great things; I cannot solve great mysteries or do miracles but I commit myself to small things like helping my neighbor, visiting the sick and sharing your word. Please give me a quiet and gentle spirit like a child in the arms of its loving mother. I want to know the peace of a baby in its mother’s arms. People of America, put your hope in Jesus. Believe in Him now, believe in Him always. Jesus is our only hope.

A Plea for Courage!

Father please listen to my request. My heart and mind are troubled. You will keep me in perfect peace if I trust in you, and fix my thoughts on you! I hear the voices of my enemies and allow men to intimidate me. My heart is racing fast and I am afraid of those who can kill the body. I am trembling with fear. I am completely terrified. I do not want to live in fear and you are my only hope of peace and courage. If I had the wings of a dove, I would fly away to some peaceful place where I felt safe. I would get out of the storm if I only had the means to do so. Since I cannot run from my problems, I need to face them but I lack the courage to do so, therefore I come to You and ask You to give me courage and strength to face the storm. Lord Jesus, You walked into Jerusalem and faced Your enemies. You were not afraid. With courage you faced them and confronted them with truth. You even prayed for them when they mistreated You. Father it is hard for us to face our enemies, let alone love them. Father we do not see things clearly. Truly, You are the only one who knows our real enemies. We know that Satan opposes us; we know that the world opposes us; we know that our own flesh will betray us and yea, sometimes our friends will turn on us. We live in the sanctuary of Your presence. We take refuge under the shadow of your wing. You are our protection. If it were not for YOU our enemies would consume us. Thank you for your grace and mercy. Thank You for loving and caring for us. Thank you for sanctuary and protection. In Jesus name, I pray.

Celebration Of Hope

praying hands 3LORD, I do not feel proud nor see myself as better than others. Once upon a time I had grandiose dreams about fame and success but I rarely think of such things these days. In time, You have taught me to keep my feet on the ground, to wait upon You and to be content with what I have. You have given me a spirit of calm, like a baby nursing on its mother’s breast; a feeling of satisfaction, security, warmth and love. I trust You LORD; You are MY HOPE both now and forever. In Jesus name I pray,  Amen!
