bible prayers - CopyPraying Matthew 6:19-21

Dear Father,

Thank You for all that You have blessed me with. I know that You, and You alone, are my provider. Help me to guard my thoughts about the things of this world (money, things). As I enter the job force help me to consider on a daily basis my rewards in eternity. Cause me to be more concerned about laying up treasure in heaven than having treasure here on earth. Lord, most of all help me by the power of the Holy Spirit to guard my relationship with You. Let everything I do with what You give me bring glory and honor to You.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Matthew 6:19-21 NKJV
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Praying Psalm  41:1-13

 

Dear Father,

Thank-you for Your mercy and Your forgiveness. You are my salvation, my Defender and my Shield. When the enemy comes against me and devises trouble, You are there protecting me, strengthening and delivering me. You preserve me and keep me full of life. Thank-you for the armor that You have given me. As I place my armor on You, O Lord, will not allow me to be taken at the will of my enemies. With You by my side I have the assurance that my enemies will not triumph over me. You uphold me in my integrity. The knowledge that I am ever on Your mind is too wonderful to comprehend. I will bless Your name forever. By the power of the Holy Spirit, help me show compassion to those around me, including those who have brought trouble on themselves. Help me to please You in everything I do, say, and think.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Psalm  41:1-13  NKJV     “Blessed is he who considers the poor; The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. The Lord will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed. I said, “Lord, be merciful to me; Heal my soul, for I have sinned against You.” My enemies speak evil of me: “When will he die, and his name perish?” And if he comes to see me, he speaks lies; His heart gathers iniquity to itself; When he goes out, he tells it. All who hate me whisper together against me; Against me they devise my hurt. “An evil disease,” they say, “clings to him. And now that he lies down, he will rise up no more.” Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, Who ate my bread, Has lifted up his heel against me. But You, O Lord, be merciful to me, and raise me up, That I may repay them. By this I know that You are well pleased with me, Because my enemy does not triumph over me. As for me, You uphold me in my integrity, And set me before Your face forever. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel From everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen.”

Your people shall be volunteers In the day of Your power; In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth.
The Lord has sworn And will not relent, “You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.”
The Lord is at Your right hand; He shall execute kings in the day of His wrath.
He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies, He shall execute the heads of many countries.
He shall drink of the brook by the wayside; Therefore He shall lift up the head.”

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand,
To execute vengeance on the nations, And punishments on the peoples;
To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron;
To execute on them the written judgment— This honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!”

Praise Him, you heavens of heavens, And you waters above the heavens!
Let them praise the name of the Lord, For He commanded and they were created.
He also established them forever and ever; He made a decree which shall not pass away.
Praise the Lord from the earth, You great sea creatures and all the depths;
Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;
Mountains and all hills; Fruitful trees and all cedars;
Beasts and all cattle; Creeping things and flying fowl;
Kings of the earth and all peoples; Princes and all judges of the earth;
Both young men and maidens; Old men and children.
Let them praise the name of the Lord, For His name alone is exalted; His glory is above the earth and heaven.
And He has exalted the horn of His people, The praise of all His saints— Of the children of Israel, A people near to Him. Praise the Lord!”

Dear Father,

Thank-you for all that You do for us. You build up and gather the outcasts unto Yourself. It is You who heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. You know everything about each one of us, you even know the number of stars and You call them by name. Great are You, O Lord, and mighty in power. Your understanding is infinite. You take pleasure in those who fear You, so by the power of the Holy Spirit may we grow in the fear of the Lord. May we place all our hope in You. You lift up the humble and You are full of mercy. All strength and blessing come from You. Help us to remember Your blessings, especially when going through hard times. We thank-you and will sing praises to You, O Lord.

Psalm 147:1-20  NKJV  

“Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.
The Lord builds up Jerusalem; He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.
He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name.
Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.
The Lord lifts up the humble; He casts the wicked down to the ground.
Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; Sing praises on the harp to our God,
Who covers the heavens with clouds, Who prepares rain for the earth, Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.
He gives to the beast its food, And to the young ravens that cry.
He does not delight in the strength of the horse; He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man.
The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy.
Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!
For He has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your children within you.
He makes peace in your borders, And fills you with the finest wheat.
He sends out His command to the earth; His word runs very swiftly.
He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes;
He casts out His hail like morsels; Who can stand before His cold?
He sends out His word and melts them; He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow.
He declares His word to Jacob, His statutes and His judgments to Israel.
He has not dealt thus with any nation; And as for His judgments, they have not known them. Praise the Lord!”
