Prayer for Protection in the Bible

Prayer for protection is one of the top prayers we pray. They rank right up there with prayers for blessings, provisions and guidance. Hardly a day goes by when we don’t ask the Lord to protect us and our loved ones. The whole of Psalm 91 is known as the Psalm of Protection but one of the most well-known promises in the bible about protection is found in verse 14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him because he knows my name.” We pray prayers for protection all the time but

Prayer for Guidance – Are you willing to give up control so that God can guide you?

Prayer for Guidance is essentially to give up control so that God can guide us. We all know Proverbs 3:5-6. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths.” We pray prayers for guidance all the time but how many of us are willing to take this advice to heart? Are we willing to give up control so that God can guide us? “Lean not on your own understanding.” It is a scary prospect and so contrary to the wisdom of the

Prayer of Jabez

The prayer of Jabez is a short prayer said by a man who would have been obscured by history were it not for the fact that the Bible records this about him: “Jabez was more honorable than his brothers; and his mother called his name Jabez saying, ‘Because I bore him in pain.’ Jabez called upon the God of Israel saying, “Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from harm so that it might not bring me pain!” And God granted what he

Daily Prayer

We all know we should do it but hardly any of us discipline ourselves to do it every day. Daily prayer is one of the hardest habits to develop – and stick to. Just knowing that daily prayer should be something we do is not going to make it happen. Just like with all other spiritual disciplines, you have to train yourself. And just like with all other aspects of our Christian walk, we have an enemy who does not want us to succeed and a self that wants to look after its own pleasures instead of the things of

St Francis of Assisi Prayer and its Significance

St Francis of Assisi Prayer is a well-known prayer that hangs in many homes around the world. It is recited by believers all around the globe and is just as popular as the Lord’s Prayer. The prayer of St. Francis of Assisi starts out by saying, “Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.” As Christians, we are called to serve Christ by pursuing peace and edifying other believers (Ro 14:19). It is not an accident that one of the most important –though easily overlooked – aspects of the armor of God is the shoes of the Gospel of Peace.

Prayer for Healing

Praying prayers for healing. There is a lot of misunderstanding in this area, and a lot of desperation. The only one who has the power, authority and ability to heal is Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will give the gift of healing to individuals, but the individuals have no power in and of themselves to heal – they must ask in Jesus name and if it is in accordance with the will of God, healing will be provided. God does promise to heal, just as he promises to give strength and wisdom and provide for our needs. However, the healing

Prayer for strength – find hope and courage in times of need.

The scriptures, especially the psalms are filled with prayers for strength. The Lord, and no other, is our strength and our shield. We may try to find strength in ourselves but we will always fail. Life is too hard to rely on our own frail strength to get through it. But when God is our strength, he equips our hands to fight all of life’s battles, big and small. Only with God can you be strong enough to prevail in life. Life forces us to acknowledge just how weak we are on our own and turn to God and cry
