Dear God,

Thank you for your great love and blessing over our lives. Thank you that your favor has no end, but it lasts for our entire lifetime.

We ask that we would walk in your blessing and goodness today. That your face would shine on us.

Establish the work of our hands and bring to fulfillment all that you have given us to do in these days.

In Jesus’ Name,
Amen.

Master of the Universe, my Protector, my God, in whom I confidently trust, hear my prayer. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Make me a channel of Your blessing – a channel through who You love and peace and joy and love flow out from You through me to others. May I be Your hands to bless others – may You guide my feet to places where I can go and be a blessing… May my speech be seasoned with salt so that I may speak words of comfort and encouragement – and speak the truth in love, and give me the grace to be available when others are in need.

Lord that You may increase in my life and I may decrease – so that the blessings that You pour through me to others may draw each one closer into the arms of the Lord Jesus, in Whose name I pray, Amen.

We bless and thank You for choosing us before the foundation of the world to become Your children and joint-heirs with Christ Jesus our Lord – and have set us apart to be holy and blameless before You all the days of our lives.

We are not worthy to stoop down and tie Your shoe latchet and yet You have lifted us up and seated us together with Christ in heavenly places. We worship and adore You and we bless Your holy name for ever and ever and ever, Amen.

Thank You that each day I wake up to a new day that Your love and grace towards me is new every morning and waiting for me as I open my eyes to a new day. Thank You that at the end of the day Your love continues to support me to guard and protect during the dark hours of the night.

Thank You that as I go about my daily business and the duties of the day You are there to lead and guide to help and to support. And thank You that no matter where I go Your blessings hover above my head – for my hope is in You.

Thank You that I have been given the indwelling Holy Spirit to lead and guide and have not been given the spirit of fear.

Lead me Father in the way that You would have me go and may all glory and blessing be given to You – for only You are worthy of our praise and worship. Amen.

Prayer #9

Dear Lord You have told us that the man that does not walk in the ways of the world and refuses to be influenced by the trinkets that this world offers and puts their trust in You is blessed indeed.

Bless me Lord, I pray with love in times of hatred; goodness in times of hostility; peace in times of strife; hope in the midst of despair – faith in the times of testings and joy in the times of pain – for my hope is in You alone.

You also told us that the one who delights in You and meditates on Your word is like a fruitful tree that is planted by the rivers of water.

Bless me Lord, I pray, with those blessings that only come from You. Amen.
