Prayer For Knowledge And Strength
Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that you would give me a discerning heart, an honest and true heart that seeks to put You first in all things, a heart of understanding and a genuine desire for a deeper knowledge of You.
Lord, it is my desire that I walk worthy in You and that I may know You more and love You better. Give me thirst for Your Word of truth, for in it is life and heath and wholeness, and reading it and applying it will help me live a life that is holy unto the Lord, a life that is separated from the ways of the world.
Give me the strength, the courage and the power to make the right choices in my life and guide my thoughts by the power of Your Holy Spirit each day. Lord, I know that You desire truth in the inward parts and I pray that You would mould the inner secrets of my heart to be laid bare before You, so that I may grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus as I draw ever closer to You day by day. In Jesus' name I pray,
Heavenly Father, You have told us in Your Word that if anyone lacks the knowledge and wisdom that we need, we ought to ask You in faith, because You have promised to give liberally to all who come to You, trusting Your promises.
Lord, there are so many things that I do not understand and so much that is happening in our world, that I come to You to ask for that precious gift of wisdom and knowledge. Your Word says that Your people perish for lack of knowledge, and I pray that You would supply me with all that I need to live the life that You would have me live, in spirit and truth, being as gentle as a dove but yet being as wise as a serpent.
Enlighten my understanding and provide me with the knowledge that I need each day, so that I can step out into the future, confident that I am in Your will. Lord, I just ask that You provide what I need day by day, trusting You to oversee all my choices and praying that You would guide me along my life-path, to Your praise and glory.
As I search the scriptures daily, I pray that You would teach me Your ways and empower me to stand firm in the evil day, knowing that Your grace is sufficient for every eventuality that I may have to face. Thank You in Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, how precious to know that You are our God. Lord, I just want to know You more and to love You better. It is the yearning of my heart to know more of You and to grow closer to You with every passing day.
As I read Your Word and study the Scriptures, I pray that You would help me to embrace all that You would teach me and I ask that You would develop in me a teachable spirit, which is quick to hear Your voice speaking to me and ready and willing to respond to the gentle promptings of the Holy Spirit in my heart.
It says in Your Word that Your people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, and Lord, I pray that You would help me to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest all that You would teach me in the Scriptures, for I want to be able to give an answer for the hope that is in me, and I desire to share the truth of the glorious gospel of grace with all I meet. Into Your hands I give my life, and pray that I may live each day to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your guidance. Forgive me for getting ahead of Your plans, and help me know when to stop and listen for Your direction. Your ways are perfect, Lord. Thank You for offering gentle grace. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Give me O Lord, I pray Thee
firm faith, unwavering hope
Pour into my heart
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding
the Spirit of counsel and spiritual strength
the Spirit of knowledge and true godliness
and the Spirit of Thy holy fear
Light eternal, shine in my heart
Power eternal, deliver me from evil
Wisdom eternal, scatter the darkness of my ignorance
Might eternal, pity me
Grant that I may ever seek Thy face
with all my heart and soul and strength;
and, in thine infinite mercy,
bring me at last to Thy holy presence
where I shall behold Thy glory
and possess Thy promised joys
Loving Lord, I desire to learn more of You and have a heart and mind that is focussed upon Jesus. I long to grow in grace and in a knowledge of Him, and so I pray that You would develop in me a deep desire to diligently study Your Word and learn to apply the truths and principles within my own life, to Your praise and glory.
But Father, I don't just want to have a head knowledge of biblical statistics, but a heart knowledge of biblical truth and godly love. I want to live my life in a way that is pleasing to You, and be used by You as a witness to Your grace and goodness, as a living sacrifice, wholly acceptable unto You.
Help me to read and retain all that I learn from Your Word, and may I learn to live like the Lord Jesus, in total dependence upon You, to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name,
Father, I thank You for my work, knowing that You created us to live useful and productive lives, while providing for the needs and necessities of our families as well.
So many things in my work life are changing, and knowledge and professional skills constantly need to be updated and improved, and so I ask Lord, that you would equip me with the necessary knowledge, training and skills so that I can continue to carry out my work load productively and to the best of my ability.
Bless the labours of my hand. Protect and provide I pray, for my family, and may I be used by You to show the love of Jesus to my managers, colleagues and work-mates, so that Christ is glorified in all I do. This I ask in Jesus' name,
In you Lord Jesus, in whom I have boldness and access with confidence through my faith in you I bow
my knee unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is
named, that according to the riches of your glory you may grant that ___________ be strengthened with
power through the Spirit in his/her inner being, so that Christ may dwell in his/her heart through faith,
being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the
breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that
he/she may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to you who is able to do far more abundantly than
all that I ask or think, according to the power at work within me, to you be glory in the church and in
Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
