Return to A Prayer for Hope
By Derek Dill
A prayer based on Psalm 6, for all those who are hurting. In the generation that we live, crying out to God is a necessity. May these words inspire you to talk to your heavenly Father. He is always ready and willing to hear and help you. Give God your problems, there is no need to carry the burdens of life when the Lord can do it for you.
I come to You with a repentant heart. Please forgive me for the things I have done. Please hear when I call out to You. Lord, You are my righteous God. You can make my life right and You alone can free me from my grief. I know that You can relieve my distress.
Father, have mercy on me. Please hear my prayer. I am weak from battling the sins that come at me and the thoughts of my own mind. My body aches to be freed from the troubles that this world brings.
Lord, I will pray often and I know that You will hear my voice, even when I speak to You in my silent thoughts. To You, I am crying out and my prayers are now before You. Father, I give to You my problems, I do not want them.
Father, please restore myself to You. Save me from this world and from myself. I know that You have compassion for Your children, so please save me. Those who do not seek Your free gift of salvation do not know You, but I do and I thank You. Father, I thank You for Your patience.
Father, I am weary from worry and my sadness never seems to cease. I will put my trust in You, for I know that You will stop the overwhelming grief that I feel and not allow it to consume my life.
Leave me alone, evils of this world, for the Lord has heard my cry. Father, show me Your ways and teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me. You are the God of my salvation and on You I will wait. Teach me Your way, O Lord, and make my path smooth. Protect me from the evils of this life and guide me through all my days.
Father, thank You for hearing my plea. I know You will receive my prayer. Father, consider and have compassion on all who read these words, and all who hurt, in this troubled generation we live. Keep them in the center of Your love, as You have done for me.
In Jesus’ Name,
If you use my articles please let me know so I can give you the credit. I look forward to hearing from you. God bless.

The Lord’s Prayer is a basic and very important pattern as Jesus taught us to pray when the disciples asked. Given by Jesus in Matthew 6:9-14 (“This is how you should pray,” He said), it is considered an outline of an individual Christian’s relationship with God and other people.
It praises the Lord and covers everything we need in this life and to attain happiness. This is often one of the first prayers taught to a new Christian, whether a child is learning to pray or an adult is entering the faith. Make it a living prayer, as a guide every day, that God may bless you in every way.
- Quiet your thoughts and focus them on God.
If you want, kneel, close your eyes, or make the
Sign of the Cross
. Begin with:
“Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed
be Thy name”. Here, you praise God as your Father and lift up His name as holy.
- Praise the Lord’s kingdom and desire its fulfillment:
“Thy kingdom come.” His kingdom brings righteousness, peace, and joy in the presence of the Holy Spirit; and you are asking Him to usher these values into the world.
Next, trust your life into the hands of the Lord, saying: “Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.” God is just and kind, and He sees what is best for you in the long run, so you seek to submit yourself to His will.
Ask God to help you with your daily needs by praying: “Give us this day our daily bread.”
- Ask Him to wash away your sins, while reminding you that you should let go of your grudges and anger. “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
- Ask God to guard you from testing and evil. “Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.”
Declare His power, trusting that everything is possible with Him, saying: “For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory forever.”
- Conclude your prayer humbly by saying:
“Amen.” Jesus taught us: “After this manner therefore pray: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory forever. Amen.”
(Matthew 6: 9–13)
Add New Question
How do I focus on God?
Studying the Bible is a great way to focus on God.
Do I have to recite the Lord’s Prayer every time I pray? Or can I simply speak to God and thank him, etc?
You can definitely just pour your heart out to God. The Lord’s Prayer is a great prayer to return to when you can’t think of anything else to pray, though.
Is the Lord’s Prayer a good prayer when fasting?
Yes, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedth out of the mouth of God.”
What do I do if I am unable to quiet my mind and focus?
Get comfortable somewhere quiet, close your eyes, and take several deep breaths, focusing just on your breathing. You could also try heading to a park and settle down in a peaceful place.
Do I have to pray the same prayer every night?
No. Just talk to God. Whatever is in your heart, he hears.
How can I pray when I am getting ready to go to sleep?
You don’t have to fold your hands, kneel, or even speak out loud to pray. You can think about the words and what they mean in your head.
How do I pray in Nepali?
Pray as you would any place. Taking time in your thoughts to talk with God does not have to be anything which any other knows about except yourself. Your thoughts, prayers, to God are private. Praying while working, doing daily activities keeps you with the ever present Lord though the Holy Spirit. Prayer is a blessing and free to all who desire a relationship with Christ.
What is meant by “lead us not into temptation” in the Lord’s Prayer?
“Lead Us Not Into Temptation” means “don’t lead us to sin.” It is asking the Lord to guide you morally, and to steer you away from situations where you might commit a sin.
Is it appropriate to say “Our father or mother” instead of just “Our father?”
Jesus said, “Our Father…” Let’s follow his example. The Scriptures identify God in the masculine form, not the feminine. Also remember, that God is a Spirit and not made of flesh like us.
What are all the “thines” and “thous” for?
“Thou,” “thy,” and “thine” are older-English, more formal versions of “you,” “your,” and “yours,” respectively. When the Bible was translated into English, these were the common terms, and a lot of prayers and religious writings continue to use them – though there are also more modernized versions of the Lord’s Prayer than have updated the language.

- For God to forgive you, it is important you do the same. You need to actually forgive others when you pray as we forgive those who trespass against us.
- Do not thoughtlessly recite this prayer – think about it and say if from the heart.
- The apparent meaning depicted in the words of Jesus in the Lord’s Prayer, as a Christian’s first and most ardent desire, is: (1) the glory of God (desiring that God’s “will being done on earth” which is all encompassing), and (2) the happiness of man by His kingdom coming and (3) asks for no more of this world than daily bread (this would perhaps include occupation and health), longing meantime for the bread that came down from heaven and (4) whose only other desires are forgiveness of sins, as he heartily forgives others, and (5) sanctification (desiring to avoid wrongdoing).
- Jesus: “When you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” (Matt 6:7-8)
- Jesus said: “When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (Matt. 6:5-6)
