Hebrews 11:8
King of Glory, change is often a scary thought, but Your word encourages change; Your faithful servants embraced change.

I pray for a change/renewal of my mind so that I may see a manifestation of change in the atmosphere around me, Amen.

Joshua 1:9
Holy One, I declare change in my life because I do not want to remain stagnant in my relationship with You and in my earthly position in my ministry.

Lord, I thank You for the changes that have occurred in my life and the changes that are about to happen, Amen.

2 Peter 3:9
Dear Father, I rejoice in the change that is taking place in my life. I know that it is only by Your grace and mercy towards me because You are not slow to fulfill Your promise to me as some count slowness, but You have been patient towards me, not wishing that I should perish, but that I should reach repentance. I thank You for the spiritual change that is working within me, Lord, thank You for the spiritual growth that has occurred in my life, Amen.

Isaiah 40:8
Righteous God, I pray that whilst I undergo changes in my life, I cling onto You word. My environment may change, people may come and go, time may pass, the grass withers, the flower fades, but Your word stands forever!

God of Abraham, You were there before the beginning, before time began! I praise You for who You are – my unshakable, unmovable God! You are the Lord, and You do not change.

You are with me and You remain the same, therefore, just as You were faithful and brought Abraham through a season of change, You will do the same for me, Amen.

Hebrews 13:5
Precious Lord, I pray that I keep my life free from the love of money and be satisfied with what I have. Righteous God, I pray that even in life’s changes; even when I have not yet reached the desired destination, I will be satisfied in You! For You have said You will never leave me; You will never abandon me. Father, I thank You for being the source of my peace, Amen.

Deuteronomy 31:8
Oh Lord, I am unsure of where life is taking me right now, but I embrace the changes! I embrace the change because I know that You will lead me and be with me.

Thank You for having Your divine way within me so that I am forever free in You, Amen.
