Angels For Protection Prayer

prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

I ask You to loose Your angels in great abundance in my presence, into my home, properties, buildings, and work places to protect me, guard me, and to keep out anything that is not of You, Lord Jesus.

Heavenly Father, I ask You to create a hedge of protection by loosing Your Mighty Warring angels around me, my home, work places and every place that I set my feet on this day to protect me from any evil or harm. In Jesus Christ Holy Name we pray.

Amen!

Prayer for the Single Parents

prayer

Heavenly Father,

I thank You for my child (children). I know that children are a gift from You (Psalms 127:3-5), that you have placed them in my care. Lord You know the challenges I face each day as a single parent. Children can seem to consume all of my time, energy, and patience. It can be trying for two parents to raise them, and as a single parent the daily tasks can seem overwhelming at times.

Father, I am trusting You to supply all our needs: spiritual, financial, physical. I want to enjoy my child (children), and I want their time with me to be a blessing. Children learn more from what they see than from what they hear. Therefore, I ask you to strengthen me daily to respond and react to each challenge as You would have me to. Let me be as patient and gentle with them as You are with me.

1 Corinthians 10:13 says that You will not put on me more than I can bear. This is Your promise to always provide what I need to accomplish Your will in the midst of trials. Young people can face such temptation, abuse, rejection, pressure to conform. The list seems unending. Let our home be a place of peace, comfort and refuge from the evil in the outside world. Lord, let them see that it is faith in You and obedience to You that brings peace and wholeness. May they know by the way I treat them that they truly are a gift and a blessing to me. May they understand Your love and faithfulness to them because of what they see in me. Give me strength, give me grace. In Jesus name, amen.

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!

It is widely known to be one of the best apps for anxiety, and is personalized depending on what you’re up to, from waking up, commuting or taking a quick break at work to dealing with stress or having trouble falling asleep.

This app brings joy, peace, and a sense of clarity to your everyday life. Millions of people agree that this app is great for meditation, mindfulness, and changing your life in a positive way.

How do I become a person who prays? #keepitreal

devotion, faith, fathers, God, memory, prayer, self help, spirtuality

Too many times in our life, situations pile up like five o clock traffic, and while we’re in the midst of feeling stuck and aggravated, we do what comes naturally to us. Call a friend, scroll twitter, facebook or other social media. So today I want to talk to you about making prayer a natural reaction to life. Just like any habit, prayer is something you work at until your muscle memory defaults to prayer. You can train your thoughts to be on God when things are happening in your life. How? Start with 5 minutes a day; there is an amazing prayer app called “ the prayer app” that has tons of prayers for every occasion. Most of the prayers are less than 2  minutes long, download the app (it’s free) and find five minutes of your day to stop and pray. It has been said that it takes 21 days to create a habit, so if you can commit today to taking 5 minutes to pray for 21 days, I guarantee your life will never be the same. Let me know if you can commit 5 Minutes to pray for 21 days!

Peace

#Friday

devotion, faith, God, memory, poetry, prayer, self help, spirtuality

I haven’t posted poetry in a while and would like to share this memory with you. Writing instantly put me back in the space of childhood. Let me know what your family fun day was like growing up! Enjoy #poetry #SLiM

Fridays

Smiles plastered as book bags drop

Plop plop YAY

Blankets gather together to see

Today is your pick, next week it’s on me

Cheese, butter, sweet, cold

No matter our age it never gets old

Family means you plus me plus time

We laugh until the sun runs behind the moon

Until our tummy looks full bloom

This is our day when work stands still

And anything serious gets forgotten

And being together is our thrill

A movie, a game, it doesn’t really matter

Listening, sharing, and admiring our smiles stuck on like plaster.

Prayer still works

devotion, faith, fathers, God, poetry, self help

We are all given the gift of perspective. Tonight as I look on twitter, Facebook, and other media outlets I have to turn to God and ask… “what am I seeing?” Beyond my carnal eyes there is a spiritual battle going on and it is my responsibility to do as God instructs and stand on my post with prayer. Many people ask, what can we do, what needs to be done? And the answer is not an easy or simple. It’s time we sacrifice our time, sleep, and social hour and get into our prayer closets and go to work.

The bible says we wrestle not with flesh and blood… what’s happening around us is more than a person against a person. It is spirits of anger, distrust and vulgarity. As christians we should want God to get the glory out of this mess, we need to take Gods perspective when deciding who we are and what we do.

Get off of your phone and get into your prayer closet, God will tell you exactly what to do from there.

Psalms 20

devotion, faith, God, poetry, self help, spirtuality

Do you know that God has given both you and me the power to win??? The reason why it’s important to read our Bible, is because the word of God is a road map through the issues we encounter in life.  Psalms 20 is a wonderful example of God’s grace for us and explains how God not only hear us, but handles the conditions we encounter on a daily basis. If you have not committed your heart to God and your lifestyle to the word of God than you will always be stuck fighting battles with a blind fold on. It’s time to put the devil in his place and let God handle everything. Trust me, God is our true champion. Peace

Psalms 20: May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
    may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.

God loves you

devotion, faith, God, self help

Occasionally the trials and misfortunes we come across in life attempts to overshadow the love God has for us. I am here to assure you that no matter how many times you have messed up, or what is going bad in your life today, God still loves you.

In church you are encouraged to read your bible because the bible gives a roadmap of how God loves you through every situation that you may be going through. The bible is bursting with examples of the brilliant way God loves us past our issues. So I encourage you today to dig into the great book and experience the life changing love of God. Still Don’t believe God loves you… read Romans 5:8. Peace
