Pray to Overcome Weariness & Burdens


John 14:16-18
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Through the knowledge of God and my Saviour Jesus Christ, grace and peace is multiplied in my life. Lord your presence goes before me to give me rest. I dwell in a peaceable habitation, in sure dwellings and in quiet resting places. I have no fear because there is no fear in love. Lord, your perfect love removes all fear because fear brings torment. I am perfected in your love and I am not wearied or burdened. I submit myself to your will, I resist the devil and he has to flee from me. The Holy Ghost is my comforter who you have sent in the name of Jesus. He teaches me all things that I need to know and helps me to recall what you have said to me.

My heart is not troubled nor afraid because I have your eternal peace. I never forget the things you have taught me and I store your word in my heart. By your word, I have a long and satisfying life. You satisfy my soul in weariness and refresh my soul in sorrows. When I cry out, you hear me from your holy heaven and save me with the strength of your hand. You are my refuge, strength and a very present help in the times of trouble. You deliver my soul from obstacles and challenges that break my peace. I cast all my burdens upon you Lord and you keep me from being swayed or moved. My heart is strengthened and you are my portion forever when my heart and flesh is weak. My soul can rest in the Lord and I sleep peacefully because I am your beloved.

Prayer to Overcome Low Self-Esteem


Lord, create in me a clean heart and renew my spirit in righteousness. You formed and fashioned me according to your will and council. I am fearfully and wonderfully made and have been forgiven, made clean and reconciled to you by your grace. I am the temple of your Holy Spirit and you abide in me forever. You have chosen me to be one of your own because I was delivered from darkness into your marvelous light. Your scriptures declare that those who reverence you Lord are secure. You are a refuge for your sons and daughters and you surround me with your hedge of protection. Thank you for enabling me to walk in boldness. Your righteousness covers and keeps me from stumbling. The wicked run away when no one is chasing them but I am not afraid because you are my helper. You declare that I am above and not beneath. I am the head and not the tail and your loving kindness is my shield.

You hold me by your right hand my Lord and my God, and tell me not to fear because you are with me. I have your new mercies each day and you supply me with everything I need for life, peace and godliness. I am a branch connected to the vine. You are the vine and I am the branch connected to your life that flows through me. I am part of a chosen generation. I am a special person called a citizen of your holy nation. I am your ambassador. I am a representative in this world. I have faith, gentleness, self-control, and the fruit of the Holy Spirit dwells in me. I yield each day to my inheritance of your peace, liberty and glory. In quietness and confidence is my strength. You are for me and more than anything that can come against me.

Thank you for the indwelling presence of your Holy Spirit that helps me in any weakness. When I pray, He makes intercession to you in my behalf. I do not place my abilities above your strength because I rely on you. My confidence rests in the knowledge that you are my helper. So I have no need to live in fear of any challenge to my mind, body, soul and spirit. My self-esteem is not diminished. I have overwhelming victory in my life. That victory is through faith as I love and worship Jesus Christ. Each day I approach you with thanksgiving, praise, worship, prayers and supplications. I can ask for anything that pleases you and I know that you hear my voice. Thank you for your love, strength, peace and confidence. You show me everyday that I am your son/daughter and you are my God.

A Prayer When Feeling Insecure


Although an army might come up against me, I do not have a fearful heart. Warfare might come to the threshhold of my door but it does not overtake me. My trust and confidence is in you Lord. It is better to trust in your promises rather than putting my confidence in man.

Father you are my confidence and you hold me up when I have been attacked, overtaken, overwhelmed by people, places, events or the inexplicable. You are the Holy Lord and God who reveals the truth. My eyes are open to see the truth revealed in your scriptures. My ears are open to hear the truth of the spoken word.

All of my confidence and strength comes from being quiet and still in my mind. My confidence and strength comes from being quiet and still in my heart. My confidence and strength comes from being quiet and still in my soul. My confidence and strength comes from being quiet and still in my spirit. When I am quiet and still, I have your rest and peace. My rest and peace is in knowing what you can do.

I take comfort in knowing that you have begun a good work in my life by showing me purpose and destiny. None of my labor as your servant is cut off or in vain. I see the reward and harvest of what you have planned for my good and my future. I see the reward and harvest of what I hope for and my expected end. Your presence causes me to abide in your unfailing love. Your presence helps me to abide in your grace and favor. Your word and your presence helps me to rest, be still and know your peace. You Lord God are my strength and resting place.

Confident In His Comfort


ConfidenceLord God I anxiously seek your comfort each day. My eyes behold the manifestation of your promises in my life. I am your son/daughter and know that you hear my prayer. I wait for your rescue that is never far away. Each day I renew my hope in your word. In the midst of sorrowful and tearful circumstances my lips praise and worship you.

Your love is unfailing and it comforts me. You have sent the Holy Spirit to abide with me and He is my helper and source of comfort. Your presence assures me of your love and peace, and restores my soul. I am encouraged by your word and consume it as my necessary food. My mind, body, soul and spirit is filled and nourished by your truth. Your promises revive me and they comfort me in all my troubles.

Lord you know every burden, trouble and weight that I must endure and you fill me with patience. Confidence in your deliverance helps me mature naturally and spiritually. In turn, I know how to minister and encourage others to live in harmony and peace. Through confidence in you I have liberty, a tender heart and a humble attitude. With one mind I sympathize with others. And I love others as my brothers and sisters. You are the God of love and peace who is always with me. You are the source of all mercy, comfort and strength. Thank you for helping me to be more confident. I praise you, the Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Connect to God


crutches-habakkukOften I have heard people refer to God as a “crutch” and they use the word in a negative connotation. Sometimes it is to make light of the believer’s faith, trust and reliance on God, or give the impression that God relishes a following of zombie-like, dysfunctional people incapable of a significant life. Those who intend to mock us with usage of the word “crutch” fail to understand the utility and functionality of the crutch.

Crutches are mobility aids used to counter a mobility impairment or an injury that limits walking ability. –Definition source: Wilkipedia

When you have been afflicted and decide to change your posture and connect to God, He should be welcomed as a crutch. His promises are your support and strength to compensate for every weakness. He is a crutch to facilitate your physical and spiritual healing. He comes along side you for natural and spiritual development, change, growth, and maturity. God is your crutch for any situation. (from “Talk to God with Affirmations of Faith”)

“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”–Isaiah 46:4 (NIV)

The “Que Sera Sera” for Those Who Are His


The other night while watching TV, there was a commercial for a new, upcoming series about heinous acts or intentions between married couples. I don’t plan to watch it but they used a song I remember from my childhood. Although sampled and sung by someone else for the advertisement, it was Doris Day’s classic called “Que Sera Sera.” That’s French for what will be, will be. For a great amount of time in my life, I lived loosely by the premise of that song… getting what I could get, as fast as I could get it and trying to have as much fun as possible while Que Sera Sera happened.

I concede that “what will be, will be” is true because the Word does say in Romans 11:33-36 — “Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! For who can know the LORD’s thoughts? Who knows enough to give him advice? And who has given him so much that he needs to pay it back. For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.”

But when the day came that I had a wonderful, memorable encounter with the Word of God and His Presence, then that changed the course of my life. No longer relevant and true was another line in the song that said, “The future’s not ours to see.” That is because I became an engrafted beneficiary of the covenant promises of God found in Deuteronomy 28:1-13. We have a Father who gives bountifully, pressed down, shaken together and running over to His children.

As a child of the King, I no longer have to walk in darkness regarding my future. His Word says in Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NLT)– “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”

Even if life and its challenges confront me, I can rest in His Word that says in Romans 8:28 (NLT)–“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”

When you learn and know that each day you can be kept in and by the Kingdom God with the enabling assistance of the Holy Spirit, you can “Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the LORD, and you will gain knowledge of God.”— Proverbs 2:3-5 (NLT)

Your Que Sera Sera can and will be orchestrated by the Lord Most High with the willing and yielded participation of your mind, body, soul and spirit.

Prayer to Overcome Negativity


Lord God, I repent for thinking or saying things that oppose what your scriptures say is the truth. Your word has declared who you are and who I am when I abide in you. I belong to you and I am your son/daughter. I am filled with your Holy Spirit. You have not given me a spirit to be afraid or timid. By your spirit I am strong, loving and self-disciplined. I understand that there are natural and spiritual challenges in the world but I take heart that I have your peace. In the midst of trials, tribulation or sorrow, I have the assurance that you have already overcome what confronts me. I already have victory over any circumstance because the Holy Spirit lives in me. Your spirit is greater than any spirit that is in the world.

You lift burdens from my thoughts, motives and intentions. You break every yoke of bondage from my shoulders. No weapon turned against me will succeed. Every voice raised in accusation against me is silenced. I enjoy the benefits you have extended to me as a servant of the Lord. I am vindicated from unrighteous judgment. I am justified, found not guilty, because of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Negative words do not proceed out of my mouth because my thoughts are renewed by your truth. I know in whom I live, move and have my very being.

I have the enabling ability to exercise authority over every challenge and challenger. My life is protected by your power. The word of God is my weapon to remove any stronghold of human reasoning that opposes God. I rest in the knowledge that you can end every mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual captivity. Your word destroys false and unrighteous arguments. Rebellious thoughts are captured and realigned to the obedience of the truth and Jesus Christ. Evil and negative thoughts are replaced by faith in you. My victory is through faith in the promises of your word and causes me to inherit your blessings. Thank you for being my God and I am your son/daughter.

Little Book, Big Prayers: Spiritual Growth


To follow is an excerpt of the Introduction to the first “Little Book, Big Prayers” 4-book series scheduled for release October 27th.

Prayer should be contagious and something you would want to catch. Sometimes it is caught and taught by example from anointed men and women of God. The ideal way to catch the desire to pray is by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and being filled with His Holy Spirit. Our teacher and helper for prayer and living a redeemed life is through the Holy Spirit. When you yield to the enabling assistance of the Spirit you will want to commune and fellowship with God frequently. The Spirit helps us approach God with sincerity and humility.

Prayer is your access to the holy place, the presence of God–His glory, and for receiving revelation or the answer for your concerns. Developing a greater prayer life means you want to take hold of God. You want to know about Him, who He is, what He does, what He wants. You also find out who you are, why you are here, and what you can have. Prayer is your spiritual sustenance and helps you learn to yield and abide in Christ so you can become like Him.

As you pray you will experience the manifestation of kingdom alternatives to your circumstances. I heard someone say that prayers never die but live on before God until answered. If you want to communicate with God and gain a personal relationship with Him, you need to pray. Prayer is sharing your heart and mind about a matter with Him. God wants to hear from you even though He already knows what your needs are. Prayer is seeking His presence just to be in His presence. It isn’t necessary to want or need anything material to commune and fellowship with Him.

When you place God first in your life through daily prayer, you are introduced to a wealth of his promises. You can rest assured that He is your source. He deepens His relationship with you and causes you to see signs of change and your spiritual growth. You will find that you have greater peace and power to overcome obstacles and challenges. You will experience abundant living and provision. A deeper relationship through prayer reveals that God is truly omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient.

Prayer makes you ready to receive His compassion, love, faithfulness, goodness, and strength. You will find an increase of His presence and glory in your environment. You will see His guidance and direction for your life and relationships. The scriptures say that you will reap what you sow. If you sow the seeds of prayer in the atmosphere, you will reap a harvest of blessing. That blessing includes, provision, protection, healing, and deliverance for every facet of your life.

Prayer: When I am Bitter


Lord when my soul is bitter I seek your deliverance and peace. As I cry out for your mercy, liberate me from the pit of corruption and cast all of my sins behind me. Create in me a clean heart and renew my spirit with your love and righteousness. Refresh me by your Holy Spirit. You have forgiven me by your great mercies and unfailing love. With the enabling power of the Holy Spirit, I am patient, kind and forgiving of others. You give peace to my soul as I choose the wisdom and knowledge of your truth.

I am not envious of others and do not harbor strife in my heart because it produces confusion and evil. Bragging or amplifying lies is deceitfully wicked. Carnal, sensual and evil conversation does not flow from my lips because it lacks wisdom. Hatred stirs up strife and contentions but love covers all sins. Dig up and empty out everything in me that is rooted in bitterness. Fill the empty places in my heart with your love. Abiding in your grace and favor destroys the root of bitterness and keeps it from springing up again. Abiding in your love delivers me from defilement.

Thank you for delivering me from bitterness. Thank you for delivering me from anger and wrath. My soul is released from the captivity of a brawling nature. My mouth no long speaks evil and I have put away malicious thoughts. My conversations are righteous and pure. Daily I show meekness and wisdom through obeying your word and walking in your ways. You have ordered my steps and with joy and gladness I follow your pathways with all diligence. Thank you for the abiding fruit of your spirit. It is your love, grace and peace that flows freely through me to others. I bless others as you have blessed me.
