Christian Prayer Samples

God yields to persistent and faithfulness. You must have complete faith in Him because he cannot and will not say “No” to a person who prays persistently and with complete faith.

Did you know that it was because of Moses’s persistent prayer that saved Israel from the fate of being destroyed by God?

Indeed, this clearly shows that the power of prayer is real and one person prayer is can be much more valuable than you think! Before you expect God to help you in your time of need, are you living true to God? Do you faithfully pray over your every meal every single day?

Prayers are what make God works His miracles among His People. In other words, He will not work if the prayer is not sincere, faithful and persistent nor can He help you if the prayers were never made. “Ask, and Ye Shall Receive. Ye Have Not, Because Ye Ask Not“.

My sisters and brothers in Christ, do you have, in your own life, the habit of praying with thanksgiving and praise? Let us give thanks to the Lord joyously even while in misery. The Lord who inhibits the praises will come down and wipe away your tears. He will lead you to triumph!

Dear brothers and sisters, the Lord is your comfort. He will definitely help you, see you through and strengthen you through the Holy Spirit.

Graduation Prayer

I have knowledge, so will You show me now,

How to use it wisely and find a way somehow

To make the world I live in a little better place,

And make life with its problems a little bit easier to face.
Grant me faith and courage and put purpose in my days,

And show me how to serve Thee in effective ways.
So my education, my knowledge and my skill

May find their true fulfillment as I learn to do Thy will.
And may I ever be aware in everything I do,

That knowledge comes from learning, and wisdom comes from You.

Prayer of Commitment to Marriage

Heavenly Father, thank you that you love each of us and want us to experience wholeness and hope in our lives. You see when we fail to live according to your ideals and instead find ourselves in a broken relationship. Help us to be willing to accept our own responsibility in this and be willing to ask for forgiveness and to extend forgiveness. May we never retaliate when we feel wronged, but help us to make choices that would show that we have made a commitment of love which we will keep. May we never take this commitment lightly but choose to work at our marriage. May we also realize that sometimes renewal of relationships takes time. May each of us determine to demonstrate patience, kindness and love in how we interact with each other. We ask this in the name of our loving Lord. Amen.
– Anne Nickel

A Prayer – When You are Fearful

Father God, I am feeling fearful today. Life seems to be uncertain and out of control. I recall that the Bible tells me ?Perfect love casts out fear?. You alone are Perfect Love, so would you please cast out the fear I feel and replace it with confidence in your sufficiency.

Psalm 121 tells me that you never slumber or sleep, so I will trust you to take care of me – moment by moment, day by day. In Jesus name. Amen

In God’s Will

Lord Jesus, keep me in Your will. Don’t let me go mad by poking about outside it.

-Corrie Ten Boom

Knowing God’s will for your Life

A Prayer of Confession

Forgive us, Lord . . . for the things we have done that make us feel uncomfortable in Your presence. All the front that we polish so carefully for men to see does not deceive You. For you know every thought that has left its shadow on our memory. You have marked every motive that curdled something sweet within us.

We acknowledge–with bitterness and true repentance–that cross and selfish thoughts have entered our minds; we acknowledge that we have permitted our minds to wander through unclean and forbidden ways; we have toyed with that which we knew was not for us; we have desired that which we should not have.

We acknowledge that often we have deceived ourselves where our plain duty lay.

We confess before You that our ears are often deaf to the whisper of Thy call, our eyes often blind to the signs of your guidance,

Make us willing to be changed, even though it requires surgery of the soul and the therapy of discipline.

Make our hearts warm and soft, that we may receive now the blessing of Your forgiveness, the benediction of Your “Depart in peace . . and sin no more.” Amen

-Peter Marshall

A Prayer for the Young Women of the World

Father God, thank you for all the young women in the world. Give them dreams that are bigger than themselves–so they will have to trust you to make their dream come true. Give them a will and heart to be all you created them to be. Help them to work hard and be successful.

Enable them to be generous to those who are less fortunate. Give them hearts full of love and compassion.

Give them the strength to say “no” to activities that they would later be remorseful about–that they would do what is right for them and for the world around them. Help them to be kind to others.

Protect them from people who would harm them physically, emotionally and mentally.

Let them know that allowing You to direct their way is the smartest thing they can do. In Jesus wonderful and powerful name. Amen

A Prayer for Others

A Prayer When You Feel like You have Failed.

Dear God, The little plans I tried to carry through Have failed. I will not sorrow. I’ll pause a little while, Dear God, And try, again, tomorrow.

Remember how much God Loves You

A Prayer for a Dream

Father, Once I had such big dreams, so much anticipation of the future. Now no shimmering horizon beckons me: my days are lack-luster I see so little of lasting value in the daily round. Where is your plan for my life?

You have told us that without vision, we perish. So, Father in heaven, knowing that I can ask You to deposit in my mind and heart that particular dream, the special vision You have for my life.

And along with the dream, will You give me whatever graces, patience, and stamina it takes to see the dream through to fruition? I sense that may involve adventures I have not bargained for.

But I want to trust You

enough to follow even if you lead along new paths.

I admit to liking some of my ruts.

But I know that habit patterns

that seem cozy nests from the inside,

from Your vantage point

may be prison cells.


if you break down

any prisons of mine

before I can see the stars and catch the vision,

then, Lord, begin the process now.

In joyous expectation.


-by Catherine Marshall

A Prayer for When You are Down-Sizing (Moving)

Lord, I really don’t what to move. I like it here – there are so many memories. I am comfortable here because it is familiar. I know it is to large for me (us) now, to much work, but I have such mixed feelings. I don’t like the thought of all the changes.

I am so glad you never change. You are and always will be a constant in my life. Help me to remember that when I am packing and unpacking. Amen.

Prayer for a Pastor

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of leadership you have given to our pastor. It is a holy calling. It’s a calling to watch over himself and the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made him overseer. The church has been bought with the blood of your son, on the cross. The responsibility you have given to our pastor is awesome. He too is tempted and tried by the enemy. He has many responsibilities be it in his family or in the community and so it is our prayer that he would be kept from the evil one and that you would empower him to live a godly life, so that out of his fullness he would share the message of the gospel boldly. Help our pastor this week as he searches the Word and Your will for the congregation. Will you grant him the health and strength he needs to share your message in humility and with clarity. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

Prayer for a Pastor’s Wife

Dear Father in heaven, I thank you for my pastor’s wife. I thank you she loves you and serves you so faithfully. I pray very specially for her today.

Help her to support her husband and learn to go with the flow of his full life. Help her to manage her household well. Just fill her with yourself today. Help her to allow your Holy Spirit to have full control of her life and may she take strength from you as she meditates on You and Your Word. Give her a hug today. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

A Prayer to Put on the Whole Armor of God

Heavenly Father, I praise and worship you because you are God.  I am honored to be your servant and I take my stand today against the devil and his schemes against me, my family and my ministry.  Father, as I take up each piece of the armor, please secure it in place on me.

I take up the shield of faith and extend it over myself.  It extinguishes all the fiery darts of the evil one.

I put on the helmet of salvation, which protects my mind from the enemy’s attacks.  I have the mind of Christ.

I put on the breastplate of righteousness, which covers my body with the righteousness of God.  In Christ, every foothold of evil has been washed away and I am clothed in righteousness!

I gird my loins with the belt of truth.  Your word, O God, is truth.  Father, sanctify me according to your word and remind me through the Holy Spirit of the truth that destroys the lies of sin.  

I shod my feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace.  I have peace with God through the blood of Jesus.  I have favor with God and with man.  I walk in my inheritance as an adopted son of God and have authority over evil in Jesus’ name.

I will use the Sword of the Spirit by speaking the Word of God as it applies to whatever situation I may face today.  Father, please remind me of your Word via the Holy Spirit.

I will continue to pray in the Spirit throughout the day, and intercede for all Christians as the Holy Spirit prompts me.  I believe that the Holy Spirit is interceding on my behalf according to my prayers.    

Thank you, Father, for the whole armor of God.  Please surround me with your hedge of protection as I move forward on the spiritual battlefield today.  I praise and worship you now and forever, Amen.”

A Prayer for  Those in Prison

Father in Heaven we pray for all who are in prison and ask that they would repent of their wrongdoing and thus be freed from the bondage of their sin and shame .  We pray for courage and faith for each of them.  We also pray for all who are affected by their imprisonment.  May they not lose hope.  May we all learn to follow God’s instructions to forgive each other, do what is right, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.  Amen

I Miss You

O Lord,

2 years ago, today, my grandpa went to be with You. I love grandpa so much! Thank You for the years that I did have with him, Father. He taught me so much and I am so lucky to have had such a wonderful man to be my Gramps! He spent time in the Word with me. He taught me normal life lessons. He was a role model in his day to day life. But…I still miss him so. Father, I still cry sometimes for my Gramps and it’s only because I love him so much. I sometimes wonder what he is up to in Heaven. I can only imagine the joy on his face when he met You, Jesus, face to face for the very first time! I anticipate that day for me too! Father, until I meet my Gramps again, I pray that You would continue to heal my broken heart and allow me to help others who are grieving in their times of loss as well. I love You! Amen

Work Anniversary


I am humbled and grateful for the job You have led me to. I have money to pay my bills and feed my family. That’s all I need. Father, I have been with the same company for 10 years now and I am thankful for the vacation time I have to spend with my family, Lord. I am thankful for the health/dental insurance provided so my family can be taken care of. Lord, I know You are with me in every single step I take and I am thankful for Your grace and mercy that You so generously give to me each and every day. May there be many more years at my job, Father! Blessed be Your name forever and ever. Amen

Parent’s Anniversary

Dear Lord,

Today my mom and dad have been married 53 years! They have stood the test of time and continue to show each other love and compassion. I am beyond blessed for the years I lived with them growing up. I was loved every day. There was food on the table every day. My friends were considered family. I love my parents so much, Lord! They are one of the biggest influences in my life. I pray that my children see in me what I see in my parents. Mom and dad modeled Jesus to me in a way that no one else could. And I am the man/woman I am today because of their hard work and love for us kids. Thank You for my parents, Lord! May they have many more wonderful years ahead of them! I love You! Amen

Drug Free

Dear Lord,

To You alone be the praise and honor and glory! You pulled me out of the muck and mire and gave me a rock solid foundation in Christ! Today I have been drug free for 5 years! I never thought I would leave that lifestyle, but You had bigger and better plans for me. Lord, without You I would not be where I am today. You have opened the door for me to speak in schools and churches to kids about my past and show them how to not get into that lifestyle. I honestly should be dead for the amount of drugs I did, but by Your grace I am alive! Thank You, Lord, for loving me and allowing me to be accepted as Your own son/daughter! What a friend we have in Jesus, our salvation! I love You! Amen

Final Thoughts
