Praying Through Ephesians

Praying Through Ephesians

Chapter 1

Blessed are You oh God, the Father of my Lord Jesus Christ. You have blessed me with
every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. You chose me in Him before the
foundation of the world, that I would be holy and blameless before You. In Your Love,
You predestined me to adoption as a son through Jesus Christ to Yourself, according to
the kind intention of Your will.

I praise the glory of Your grace which You have freely bestowed upon me in the Beloved
Jesus Christ. In Christ I have the redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of my
trespasses, according to the riches of Your grace which You have lavished on me.
In all Your wisdom and insight, You have made known to me the mystery of Your will,
according to Your kind intention which You purposed in Jesus with Your viewpoint and
administration that was suitable to the fulness of times in summing up of all things in
Christ to the praise of Your glory oh God my Father!
For this reason, I too with all my brothers and sisters in Christ, will not cease to give You
thanks and make mention of them in my prayers that You, the God of our Lord Jesus
Christ would give to us a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of You, oh
God and that the eyes of our hearts would be enlightened, so that we will know what is
the hope of Your calling, what are the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in the
saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of Your power toward us who believe. I
thank You that these are in accordance with the working of the strength of Your might
which You brought about in Christ, when You raised Him from the dead and seated Him
at Your right hand in the heavenly places, far above rule and authority and power and
dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to
come. You put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as the head over all
things to us, the church, which is His body, the fulness of Him who fills all in all – AMEN! Continue reading

 Praying Through 1 Thessalonians

Father God, today I give You thanks for the grace and peace I have received in the Lord
Jesus Christ. I also give thanks to You for my brothers and sisters in Christ for their work
in faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ and in Your
presence.

I thank You that You chose me to receive the Gospel in word and in power through the
conviction of the Holy Spirit. Help me always to walk in such a conviction that I may be
approved amongst my brethren and in Your sight that others may imitate my life and
walk in You oh Lord. Help me always to receive Your Word in any and all tribulations
with the joy of the Holy Spirit so that it will be an example to all believers whom I come
in contact with and that the Word of the Lord would sound forth from me in every place
that I live my faith and witness toward You. I pray that my witness would be one that is
reported by others of how I turned from idols to serve a living and true God and how I
am waiting for Your Son from heaven whom You raised from the dead, the Lord Jesus,
who rescues me from the wrath to come.

Chapter 2
Father, whenever I suffer or am mistreated for the sake of the gospel, grant me the
boldness in You to speak the gospel all the more in spite of the opposition. Father, I
pray that my exhortation would never come from error, impurity or by way of deceit but
instead being approved by You and entrusted with the gospel, I would speak, not as
pleasing to men but to You, Oh God, because You are the One who examines my heart.
Keep me from flattering speech, or from any pretext of greed, or from seeking any glory
from men, either from those I know or those I do not. Guard my heart oh Lord, and help
me to never take advantage of, or assert the authority of any position in Your Kingdom
with these kind of evil motives.
Help me to be gentle amongst those I proclaim the gospel and disciple. Even as a
nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children, help me to have fond affection for
them and be willing to share my life with them because they are very dear to You and
should be to me also.
Lord, help me to be devout and upright without blame in behavior before my brethren
and labor hard day and night in hardship when necessary as not to be a burden to any
of them. Help me to exhort, encourage and implore each one of them even as a father
would his own children so that we will walk in a manner worthy of You oh God, who has
called us into Your own kingdom and glory!
Father, help me to follow Christ’s example even as the Apostle Paul did by enduring the
same sufferings knowing that it is Your Word that performs its work in all who believe
and that our hope, joy and crown of exultation are those presented to Christ at His
coming whom we have labored hard for in His Kingdom! Let winning souls to Your
kingdom always be my glory and joy!

Praying through Galatians

Dear God my Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, Your grace and peace I receive today
because You gave Yourself up for my sins and rescued me from this present evil age!
All according to Your will oh God my Father to whom be the glory forevermore- Amen!
Help me not to turn away and desert You oh God. You have called me by the grace of
Christ. Keep me from those who would disturb me and who want to distort the gospel of
Christ. Help me to know and understand that even if any man or even an angel from
heaven should preach to me a gospel contrary to what I have received from You, he is
to be accursed!

Help me always to seek Your favor and not the favor of men. I want to be a bondservant
of Christ alone. You have set me apart, even from my mothers womb and You
gave me revelation knowledge and understanding of Jesus Christ. I was formerly a
sinner, lost and sinning against You, through ignorant religious hypocrisy and
ungodliness. But when You oh God, called me through Your grace and it pleased You to
reveal Your Son, Jesus to me so that I might preach the Good News to others and have
a testimony that I was once lost and an enemy of God but have now been reconciled to
You my God, through the cross and by the blood of Jesus Christ my Lord that others
would glorify You because of this, my testimony. Continue reading

Father God, I thank You that I am kept for Jesus Christ. Thank you that Your mercy,
peace and love are multiplied toward me.

Father, help me to contend earnestly for the faith which has been handed down once for
all to all Your Saints. Help me to discern and notice those that have crept in who have
long beforehand been marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn
Your grace into licentiousness and deny my only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. Don’t
let me fall into their deception or walk in this darkness Lord.
Father, though I know these things once for all, I am reminded that after You saved a
people out of Egypt, You subsequently destroyed those who did not believe. And angels
who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, You have kept
in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day. Continue reading

Father God, today I am thankful that what was from the beginning, what the Apostles
heard and saw with their eyes and what they touched with their hands concerning the
Word of Life that was manifested to them. They saw, testified and proclaimed then and
now through Your written Word the eternal life, which was with You and made manifest
to them.

Father, I am thankful that what they saw and heard, they proclaimed to all who would
believe, so that I as a believer would have fellowship along with them. I thank You for
this fellowship I now have with You and Your Son, Jesus Christ. I thank You that all
these things were written so that my joy may be made complete. The joy of the Lord is
my strength!
Father, God of light whom no darkness dwells at all, keep me in fellowship with You. Let
me not walk in darkness. Keep me from living a lie by not practicing the truth. Help me
to walk in Your light and have fellowship with my brothers and sisters who do the same.
Thank You that when I do this, the blood of Jesus cleanses me from all sin.
Father, I confess that I have sinned and fallen short of Your glory and I ask for Your
forgiveness in Jesus. I thank You that Jesus was, is and always will be my faithful and
righteous Savior and You forgive me of all my sins and cleanse me of all my
unrighteousness because of His perfect obedience and sacrifice on the cross. Father let
me not to ever get self righteous and prideful nor be deceived into thinking that I have
not sinned. I know that those that do this make You out to be a liar and Your word is not
in them. Father deliver me from a religious, hypocritical and self righteous spirit! Continue reading

I give thanks to You God, the Father of my Lord Jesus Christ for my faith in Christ Jesus
and the love You have put in my heart for all the saints because of the hope that is laid
up for me in heaven. I thank You for the Word of Truth, the Gospel which came to me

Father, I ask to be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and
understanding so that I may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord Jesus, to please Him
in all respects, to bear fruit in every good work and increase in the knowledge of You, oh
God.
Father, I ask to be strengthened with all power, according to Your glorious might that I
may attain all steadfastness, patience and always giving You thanks because You have
qualified me to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.
Father, thank You for rescuing me from the domain of darkness and transferring me into
the kingdom of Your beloved Son, Jesus in whom I have redemption and forgiveness of
my sins.
Father, I believe that Jesus Christ is the image of You, the invisible God and is the
firstborn of all creation and that by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and
on the earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities.
I believe all things have been created through Him and for Him and He is before all
things and in Him all things are held together.
Father I believe that Jesus Christ is the head of the body, the Church and He is the
beginning, the firstborn from the dead and that He Himself will come to have first place
in everything. Continue reading

Father in Heaven,
I thank You that I have received a faith of the same kind as the early Apostles and
Prophets by Your righteousness and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I ask that Your grace and
peace be multiplied toward me in the knowledge of You, oh God and of my Lord and
Savior Jesus.

Father, help me to see all that Your divine power has granted me. That I have the true
knowledge of everything pertaining to life and godliness from You because You have
called me by Your own glory and excellence and by this, You have granted to me Your
precious and magnificent promises so that by them I may become a partaker of the
divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.
Father, for this reason, I will apply all diligence and in my faith supply moral excellence
and in my moral excellence, knowledge, and in my knowledge, self control, and in my
self control, perseverance, and in my perseverance, godliness, and in my godliness,
brotherly kindness, and in my brotherly kindness, love. For I know Father, that if I
possess these qualities and continue to increase in them, I will be useful and fruitful in
the true knowledge of my Lord Jesus Christ.
Father, please help me not to be lacking in any of these qualities. Keep me from being
blind or short sighted. Help me to never forget my purification from my former sins and
be even more diligent to make certain about Your calling and choosing of me. I know
Lord, that if I practice these things, I will never stumble and in this way, the entrance to
the eternal kingdom of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to
me. Continue reading

Father, today, I will consider it all joy when I encounter the various trials it will bring,
knowing that the testing of my faith will produce patient endurance. Help me Lord, to let
it have its perfect work in me and bring about the result You seek in my perfection and
completion in Christ that I may be lacking in nothing.
In my need of wisdom, Lord, I ask in faith for Your Wisdom, Father, because You give
generously and without reproach to all who ask in faith without doubting. Help me
Father, to never doubt You or be double minded but instead make me a man of faith,
stable and steadfast in all my ways.
Father, when I am in humble circumstances let me see Your glory and be lifted up in my
heart, when I am experiencing abundance and riches, help me to remain humble and
give You glory for it.
Father, grant me the strength to persevere under the trials of the day that I may be
approved and receive the crown of life which You promised to those who love You.
When I am tempted, I will never say that I am tempted by You, God, because You can
never be tempted by evil and You, Yourself, never tempt anyone. I know that when I am
tempted, I am carried away and enticed by my own lust and when it is conceived, it
gives birth to sin; when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death. Oh God lead me not
into temptation but deliver me from evil!
Father, let me not be deceived in any way concerning Your love and goodness towards
me. For I know that every good thing given and every perfect gift comes down from You
the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. In the exercise of
Your will, You brought me forth by the Word of Truth, so that I may be a kind of first fruit
among Your creatures and I thank You for this knowledge and understanding. Continue reading

be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ. Please fill me with the fruit of
righteousness that can only come through Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of You,
my Father in Heaven.
Help me Father to view all my circumstances as an opportunity for the greater progress
of the gospel as I trust in you and seek you for the courage and boldness to speak your
word without fear.
Father, help never to speak your word in envy, strife or selfish ambitions but rather from
good will out of my love for your Son Jesus and to always rejoice that the gospel is
being preached and Christ is proclaimed no matter what the motives of others may be.
Help me Lord, to have the Spirit of Jesus Christ in earnest expectation and hope and to
not be ashamed in anything but rather that, with all boldness, Christ will now and always
be exalted in my body whether by life or by death. For I know Father that for me to live
is Christ and to die is gain. As You grant me life Father, I will live it in fruitful labor in Your
Son Jesus toward the progress of my fellow brothers and sisters and reaching the lost.
Father, help me to conduct myself in a manner that is worthy of the Gospel of Christ,
standing firm in one spirit and mind, striving together with my brothers and sisters in
Christ for the faith of the gospel. Help me to do this without fear of man’s persecution
knowing that this is a sign of destruction for them but of salvation for me that comes
from you, oh God my Father. Continue reading
