Receive Jesus as Savior/Lord

Father, it is written in Your Word that if I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that You have raised Him from the dead, I shall be saved.  Therefore, Father I confess that Jesus is my Lord.  I make Him Lord of my life right now.  I believe in my heart that You raised Jesus from the dead.  I renounce my past life with Satan and close the door to any of his devices.

I thank You for forgiving me of all my sin.  Jesus is my Lord, and I am a new creation.  Old things have passed away.  Now all things become new in Jesus’ name.  Amen


Health and Healing

Father, in the name of Jesus, I come before You asking You to heal me.  It is written that the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up.  And if I have committed sins, I will be forgiven.  I let go of all unforgiveness, resentment, anger and bad feelings toward anyone.

My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and I desire to be in good health.  I seek truth that will make me free —both spiritual and natural (good eating habits, medications if necessary, and appropriate rest and exercise).  You bought me at a price, and I desire to glorify You in my spirit and my body —they both belong to you.

Thank You, Father, for sending Your Word to heal me and deliver me from all my destructions.  Jesus, You are the Word Who became flesh and dwelt among us.  You bore my griefs (pains) and carried my sorrows (sickness).  You were pierced through for my transgressions, crushed for my iniquities; the chastening for my well being fell upon You, and by Your scourging I am healed.

Father, I give attention to Your words, and incline my ear to Your sayings.  I will not let them depart from my sight, but I will keep them in the midst of my heart for they are life and health to my whole body.

Since the Spirit of Him Who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in me, He Who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to my mortal body through His Spirit Who dwells in me.

Thank You that I will prosper and be in health even as my soul prospers. Amen.

Renewing the Mind

Father, in Jesus’s name, I thank You that I shall prosper and be in health, even as my soul prospers.  I have the mind of Christ, the Messiah, and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.  I trust in You, Lord, with all my heart; I lean not unto my own understanding, but in all my ways I acknowledge You, and You shall direct my paths.

Today I submit myself to Your Word, which exposes and sifts and analyzes and judges the very thoughts and purposes of my heart. (For the weapons of my warfare are not carnal, but mighty through You to the pulling down of strongholds — intimidation, fears, doubts, unbelief and failure.)  I refute arguments and theories and reasoning and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the (true) knowledge of God; and I lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ the Messiah, the Anointed One.

Today I shall be transformed by the renewing of my mind, that I may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.  Your Word, Lord, shall not depart out of my mouth; but I shall meditate on it day and night, that I may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then I shall make my way prosperous, then I shall have good success.

My thoughts are the thoughts of the diligent which tend only to plenteousness.  Therefore, I am not anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, I present my requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus.

Today I fix my mind on whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious.  If there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, I will think on and weigh and take account of these things.

Today I roll my works upon You, Lord — I commit and trust them wholly to You; [You will cause my thoughts to become agreeable to Your will, and ] so shall my plans be established and succeed.

In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.


Overcoming Worry

Father, I depart from evil and do good.  I seek, inquire for, and crave peace.  I pursue (go after) it!  When my ways please you , Lord, You make even my enemies to be at peace with me.

Lord, you have given to me Your peace; Your [own] peace You have bequeathed to me.  It is not the peace that the world gives. I will not let me heart be troubled, neither will I let it be afraid.  [I refuse to be agitated and disturbed; and I will not permit myself to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]

Instead of worrying, I will pray.  I will let petitions and praises shape my worries into prayers, letting You, Father, know my concerns, not forgetting to thank You for the answers.  Your peace will keep my thoughts and my heart quiet and at rest as I trust in Christ Jesus, my Lord.  It is wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of my life.

Thank You for guarding me and keeping me in perfect and constant peace.  My mind [both its inclinations and its character] is stayed on You.  I commit myself to You, lean on You, and hope confidently in You.

I let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in my heart [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in my mind].  I am thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to You always].

In Jesus’s name, amen.


Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”  Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.  He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.  A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.  You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.  If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.  For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;  They will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.  You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.  He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.  With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

Urgent Prayer for Help

Psalm 70

Hasten, O God, to save me; come quickly, Lord, to help me.  May those who want to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace.  May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!’ turn back because of their shame.  But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, “The Lord is great!’ But as for me, I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God.  You are my help and my deliverer; Lord, do not delay.

To Receive Forgiveness

Psalm 51

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions.  Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.  Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge.  Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.  Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb; you taught me wisdom in that secret place.  Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.  Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice.  Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity.  Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.  Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.  Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you.  Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, you who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.  Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise.  You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.  My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.  May it please you to prosper Zion, to build up the walls of Jerusalem.  Then you will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous, in Burnt offerings offered whole; then bulls will be offered on your altar.

To Know God Better

Ephesians 1:17-19

(to make this a personal prayer I have inserted “I” or “you” etc where applicable for you to recite out loud)

I keep asking you God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, you will give me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that I may know you better.  I pray that the eyes of my heart may be enlightened in order that I may know the hope to which you have called me, the riches of your glorious inheritance in your holy people, and your incomparably great power for us who believe.  That power is the same as the might strength.
