Thank you for the blessed privilege to approach your throne of grace. Thank you for the power of prayer and the confidence that you know all my needs even before I make my petition.

Help me to pray without ceasing; on all occasions with all kinds of prayer request.

Protection & Deliverance
You said “when a man’s ways please you that you will make even their enemies to be at peace with them” (Prov. 16:7). I ask you to forgive me of the things that I have done that have not pleased you. Help me turn from my will to yours, as I commit afresh today to obey your voice. For then you will be an enemy unto my enemies (Ex. 23:22). For your glory Lord and not mine, deliver me (2 Sam. 22:18).
Please keep me as the apple of your eye (Ps. 17:8) by granting me the grace to love my enemies. I confess my need for your Holy Spirit to help me to do good to them that hate me, and to pray for them (Matt. 5:43-45). Father, please grant me the courage to fight against the one true source of all evil. For I wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Help me to be strong in you and in the power of your might as I take up the whole armor of God, and stand against the wiles of the devil. (Eph. 6:10-16).
I unite my faith with your word and proclaim that no weapon that is formed against me shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against me in judgment, I do condemn. This is my heritage as your servant, and my righteousness is of you (Isaiah 54:17).
You have given me power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means shall hurt me (Luke 10:19).
In the Name of Jesus I pray, Amen
But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. -Psalm 5:11
You are my Lord and my God. Thank you for going with me and before me to fight the enemy on my behalf. How I bless your name for the protection and peace you provide. Thank you that your hand is ready and able to deliver me from the threat and the snares of the enemy. I thank you today for victory in Jesus Christ!
In the Name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Father in Heaven,
Your will for me is to prosper and be in health (3 John1:2) for you said that my body is a temple for the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 6:19). I am redeemed, cleansed and sanctified by the blood of Jesus (Heb. 13:12) and I come before you now to present myself as a living sacrifice, even though I need healing.
Please forgive me for the times I have not hearkened to the voice of your Spirit and done what is right in your sight. I confess the times I did not obeyed your Holy Spirit when He said to rest, eat differently and anything else that may have hindered the well being of my health (Ex.15:26).
Look upon me Lord and perceive that I have faith to be healed (Acts 14:9, 10). Remove all sickness (Deut. 7:15) and make me whole. Take that which was meant for harm and turn it around for your glory.

Use me to boldly proclaim to anyone who has lost hope, don’t know you or need proof, that there is a living God who still stretches forth His hand to heal in the name of Jesus (Acts 4:29-30). For you are the God who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that I ask or think, according to the power that works in me (Eph. 3:20) Therefore, by faith I choose to persevere through this affliction onto victory. I proclaim that, Christ was wounded for my transgressions, bruised for my iniquities and the chastisement of my peace was upon Him; and with His stripes I am healed (Isa. 53:5). My body is for the Lord and the Lord is for my body (I Cor. 6:13). In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Scripture: Proverbs 13:4, 21;5; Philippians 4:1; I Thessalonians 4:11; John 15:16
You said that an unmarried woman is to be concerned with the Lord’s affairs, with her aim to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit (1 Cor. 7:32-35). Yet you also said that it is not good that man dwells alone and that woman was created to be a help meet (Gen. 2:18).
Therefore, for this current season of my life, I ask you to grant me the grace to be content with being single. When loneliness comes, let no temptation over take me beyond what I am able to bear (1 Cor. 10:13). Help me to be committed to watch and pray, for my spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak (Matt. 26:41). Continually fill me with the power of the fruits of your Holy Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) that I may walk after the Spirit and not fulfill the lusts of my flesh (Gal. 5:16)
I will continually take comfort in knowing you have not left me alone (John 8:29). I will not lean on my own understanding, but I will trust in you with all my heart (Prov. 3:5,6). May the testing of my faith produces perseverance (James 1:3,4) that brings you glory.
Help me now to write the vision of a godly man’s character that I am believing you for. I will make it plain on paper and keep it continually before me so that I do not compromise and settle for less than your will in my life (Hab. 2:2). Please grant me an understanding heart, that I may discern between a good and a bad relationship (I Kings. 3:9). I willing summit to your preparation for the next season of my life with my aim to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. For few things are needed and I choose that which will not be taken away from me (Luke 10:42)
In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
Wisdom / Discernment
For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6 (NIV)
Dear Lord and King,
Thank you for the gracious gift of your wisdom Please give me more wisdom, knowledge and understanding. You said in your word if any man lacks wisdom to ask for it. Today, I ask, believing that you give wisdom liberally to those who ask in faith. I love your wisdom and I am confident that your wisdom will preserve my life.
In all things allow us to defer to the leadership and guidance of your spirit. Before every decision I want you to go before me. As I walk daily let me be sensitive to hearing your voice and not my own desires. Thank you God, for the life your wisdom imparts to me. I will seek after it with all my heart and I will daily seek to walk in your wisdom.
In the Name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Regardless of my test, help me to stand in the faith that you have given to me. You said if I have the faith the size of a mustard seed then I can move mountains. I trust and believe by faith all things are possible. Lord help me not waiver, but to hold fast to the profession of my faith. Without faith I know that it is impossible to please you. It is by your grace that I walk by faith and not by sight. I praise you for enabling me to walk by faith. I praise you that I can fight the good fight of faith. I praise you for the shield of faith.
