Proverbs on prayer

It’s back to school time!  Our children are heading out to school and I’m sure as parents, step parents, grand parents and foster parents you have concerns.

Well, the only way to handle these concerns is to take it to God in prayer.  Afterall in Psalm 138:8, He says that he will perfect everything that concerns you!

We are using a very popular bible verse for this prayer in 4 version.  It is always great when you read the same scripture in different version because it causes you to think deeper about it and it is a great way to meditate on the scripture.

Proverbs 22:6 New International Version (NIV)
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Proverbs 22:6 King James Version (KJV)
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6 Amplified (AMP)
Train up a child in the way he should go , and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6 The Message (MSG)
Point your kids in the right direction— when they’re old they won’t be lost.

Prayer for Students

Jehovah Rohi, the only true shepherd of your sheep we ask you to watch over our students as they head back to school.  Protect them as the Good Shepherd that you are and keep them safe as they go through school from bullying or anything that would take their focus off of their studies.  Lord we pray that the teachers would be guided by Your Spirit to do the things that you would have them do.  Give those who are Christians the ability to show Your love to the students.  And, even those teachers who don’t have a relationship with you, we ask that you would lead them just as you did King Cyrus to make the right decisions for our children.  We pray that they will train up our children in the way that they should go so that when they are older they will not depart from Your Word.  We pray that you would give our children who are saved the courage to stand for righteousness.  We pray that they would be strengthen by your Spirit to not depart from the truth of Your Word, regardless of what is popular.  We thank you that You will give them grace to learn all and retain so that they will pass the exams at the end of the school year, in Jesus Name, Amen

Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.

Talk about culture shock. I went from vespers and early to rise, early to bed and prayer sessions, to pot, theater, staying up late and, you know.

Prayer is talking with God. God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart.

Surely your Lord knows that you pass in prayer nearly two-thirds of the night, and (sometimes) half of it, and (sometimes) a third of it, and (also) a party of those with you; and Allah measures the night and the day. He knows that you are not able to do it, so He has turned to you (mercifully), therefore read what is easy of the Quran. He knows that there must be among you sick, and others who travel in the land seeking of the bounty of Allah, and others who fight in Allah’s way, therefore read as much of it as is easy (to you), and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and offer to Allah a goodly gift, and whatever of good you send on beforehand for yourselves, you will find it with Allah; that is best and greatest in reward; and ask forgiveness of Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (The Wrapped Up 73.20)

In a world of prayer, we are all equal in the sense that each of us is a unique person, with a unique perspective on the world, a member of a class of one.

Continuing a Lenten series on prayer: Prayer is co-operation with God. It is the purest exercise of the faculties God has given us – an exercise that links these faculties with the Maker to work out the intentions He had in mind in their creation.

This Prayer of Expectation is based on:

Proverbs 23:17-19 (AMP)

Let not your heart envy sinners, but continue in the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord all the day long.

For surely there is a latter end , and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off.

Hear, my son, and be wise, and direct your mind in the way .

How can we ever desire God to answer our prayers when we don’t have any expectation on what we are praying for?  We must not only Pray, hope, have faith and believe but we must wait with expectation!

We must expect what we are praying for or it will never show up!

Prayer of Expectation:

Father God, I come before you today and I know that you love me and that you have a plan for my future.  This is a plan of hope and goodness because you are a good God.  As I wait expectantly upon you, may I never envy the sinner.  May I never be jealous of how you are blessing others around me because I know that I am next.  My time is coming!  I will continue to walk in a worshipful fear of you on a daily basis.  Even though things may not look the way that I want them to in the natural, I believe that you have a beautiful future and reward for me.  May my hope and expectation grow more and more each day as I look to your salvation and deliverance.  Continue to direct my mind, heart and soul into the things that please you.  May my feet ever walk in your path.  I love you Lord and I wait in expectation on the fulfillment of your promises and ALL the prayers that I have prayed, in Jesus Name, Amen

Proverbs 23:17-19 King James Version (KJV)

Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long.

For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.

 Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.
