Isaiah 49:25

…For I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children.

Prayer:   Father in Heaven, thank You for Your willingness to contend with those who contends with me!  Please frustrate their devices, and make them incapable of carrying out their plans to any further extent.  Also, Lord, catch them in their own craftiness, and let them meet with darkness in day time, and struggle in the noon day as in the night.   Moreover, let their gathering because of me result in disaster, and save my children from their cruel hands, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Genesis 33:5

And he lifted his eyes and saw the women and children, and said, ‘Who are these with you?’ So he said, ‘The children whom God has graciously given your servant.’”

Dear Lord, behold the children You have graciously given us [Please mention the names of your children one by one here, and if you don’t have children yet, you may say, “Dear Lord, thank You for the children You will give me in future.”]. Please, let them know You are the true, living, and everlasting King, and that Jesus Christ is Your only begotten son. Lord, cause them to fear You, love You, love Your words, love holiness, and hate evil. Also, help them to honor all people, including those in authority. Moreover, help them to cultivate healthy, edifying, and wise friendships that will bless and not destroy them, and help them to honor You with their bodies, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. And when the time comes, please give them good husbands and wives, and let them be in Your presence to enjoy fullness of joy and pleasures, all the days of their lives, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Philippians 4:4

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

Dear Lord, please, help me to rejoice in You always! Help me to rejoice in You when I am abased, and when I abound (Philippians 4:11-12). Kindly help me to rejoice in You when I am hurting and not doing well (Habakkuk 3:17-18). Also, help me to rejoice in You now that I am still strong, and when I become old, wrinkling, and weak, help me to rejoice in You as well (Philippians 4:4). And, when death comes calling, Lord, help me to rejoice in You, knowing that I have a place in Heaven, standing by for my habitation (John 14:2-3), in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Psalms 107:20

He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

Father in Heaven, please send down Your word afresh, to heal us, body, soul, and spirit, and deliver us from our destruction (Psalms 107:20).  Additionally, let Your word heal our families, our friends, our works, our ministries, our finances, etc.  Also, let it fire up our people and us, so we can humble ourselves, pray, seek Your face, and turn from our sinful ways.  In that way, Lord, we believe You will hear us from Heaven, forgive our sins, and heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14), in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Colossians 3:13

…bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.

Father Lord, we have chosen to obey the instruction above! For this reason, we sincerely forgive all the people who sinned against us at one time or the other [Please mention the names of those you have forgiven one by one here]. And by this, Lord, we believe You have forgiven us as well, and You have restored back to us the peace, joy, good health, and other great things that unforgiveness has robbed us of. Thank you Lord for always answering our prayer, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Matthew 14:28-29

“And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.”

Father Lord, thank You for stretching out Your hand to us, and asking us to “Come!” Please help us to get out of the boat, walk over, and conquer our troubling waters of life, knowing fully well that you have made it safe for us to do so. We give you praise O Lord, in Jesus name. Amen.

Luke 12:28

If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith?

Father Lord, thank you for being so mindful of us, more than the grass, which today is in the field, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven (Luke 12:28).

Thank you for your willingness to supply all our need (food, water, shelter, security, and clothes, etc.) according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

In addition Father, please clothe us with the garments of joy and praise (Isaiah 61:3), peace (Isaiah 55:12), mercy (1 Peter 1:3), grace (Hebrews 4:16), forgiveness (Ephesians 4:32), healing (Psalm 107:19-21), and salvation (Isaiah 33:2), in Jesus name. Amen.
