A PRAYER FOR FAITH AND AGAINST FEAR (YOU FILL IN THE BLANKS)
In the Name of Jesus, Heavenly Father we draw closer to you this day. Father, It looks like I am sore troubled regarding these matters of _________, ___________________ not knowing which way to turn, but I stand STRONG IN FAITH.. We join our faith together and stand on your Word for you are our solid rock. Father we cast off any fear that would come into the my heart. We instead cast the burden that ___________ (name) has this day upon you for I am the righteous and You will never suffer the righteous to be moved. We stand on your Word which says: And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve, (ISAIAH 14: 3) Father we know that you will give me rest from the prayer concerns that plague her/his mind today. She/He will wait on you holding fast to your Word: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (KJV) (ISAIAH 40:31) Father we take solace of the Word given unto us which says: And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. (Exodus 14: 13,14)
Father, I know that this battle that she/he speaks of, prays about; the one that has consumed most of her/his thoughts is not hers; but it is yours Lord. Your word says The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Prov. 1: 23) Your Word says: Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. (Proverbs 1: 23) You said: Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words. So Father I hear Your words today and in all future days. We confess that I am the head and not the tail, above and never shall be beneath. That _________ (name) will hearken unto your voice and keep your commandments. That she/he will hear your voice and the voice of a stranger she/he will not follow, regarding your guidance for her/his through these trials/tests that she/he faces.
Father, we don’t know how this is going to come out; but we know that NOTHING is too hard for you. We know that __________ (name) will hear your instruction and your reproof and if there is anything in his/her life that is in need of correction that she/he will diligently hearken to your Voice. It is our prayer that __________ (name) will not have indecisive faith but that she will meditate upon your Word both day and night; getting stronger and stronger always remembering that faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
Father, we know that you have heard our petition and that you will honor my prayer this day, sending your ministering angels out in her/his behalf. We give you glory and honor and praise and we thank you for your mercy and your grace in the mighty name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. AMEN
