Prayer for Teenagers to Pray

prayer

Heavenly Father,

You are a loving and forgiving God and I ask You Lord to forgive me for all my sins and any unforgiveness that I may have in my heart. I ask You Lord to forgive me for not always making You a priority in my life. I need Your help right now.

I am being tempted to do things that are not good for me. Give me strength to say no to these pressures. Help me to find good and Godly things to keep me busy in place of the things that my friends want me to do. You are my strength, Lord. I know, that You understand all the temptations that face us today and what it will take to keep me from being lured in the wrong direction. So, Lord, I trust in You.

You know my heart Lord. Help me to receive fully, with understanding, Your Word in James 1:3-4, so that when my faith is tested, my endurance has a chance to grow. I know that You will guide me along the right pathway for my life and that You will advise me and watch over me and that I must have faith in You to do these things for me. You are my counselor and I’m in need of Your guidance. I don’t know what to do (Psalm 32:8). Help me to do what You want me to do in all situations that I must face.

Please Lord, put godly people in my path. I know Lord that there are friends who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). I ask You, Lord to help me find the kind of Christian friends that will be closer than a brother. Help me Lord to be a good and Godly friend to others. Open my eyes to see the good qualities in people around me. There are so many questions that I need to ask and I am torn between finding the truth, and having a good time and keeping my friends. I want to do the right thing instead of wearing a mask and being a phony just to be popular.

Heavenly Father, I ask for You to show me Your Face when I feel like giving up. Remind me of Your unconditional love when I seem to have no hope in me. I know Lord that You will continue the battle for me when I can’t. I want to learn to cling to You when I am going in the wrong direction. Help me to keep my thoughts on You when I become weak. Help me to continue to praise You during these low times. I thank You, Heavenly Father, for reaching down into my world and drawing me closer to You. Thank You for allowing me to soak up Your strength during moments like these. I thank you Lord for never giving up on me, even when I’ve given up on myself.

Make me into the worthwhile person you destined me to be. Teach me to know Your Will for my life and to be obedient to You. Do not let anything Lord interfere with Your destiny for my life. I know You have a great plan for me – help me to find it. I praise You Lord for the comfort that You bring just by listening to me. Always remind me Lord that when I am in need to just ask You, Lord and it will be received if I only believe (Matthew 21:21-23.

In Jesus Name I pray.

Amen.

Special thanks to the Prayer book for its incredible prayers!

In this time where so much breaks our heart, I want to introduce you to something that helps me stay calm and invite peace into my life. Meditation. Is meditation helpful… absolutly! Check out why every week.

*** Thank you mindfulness.org for the incredible tips! Enjoy.

What are the benefits of mindfulness meditation?

  1. Understand your pain: Mental pain and anxiety are a background noise that can underlie much of what we do. Here’s a chance to see firsthand what’s causing it.
  2. Lower stress: There’s lots of evidence these days that excess stress causes lots of illnesses and makes other illnesses worse. Mindfulness decreases stress.
