Prayer For Understanding Others

Lord God, I know You are here. I trust in Your presence, Your power, Your goodness, and Your complete control over everything I'm facing. Help me walk through the questions, assured of Your answers, even though they're still unclear to me. I know one day King Jesus will appear as the Faithful and True (Revelation 19:11), riding a powerful horse and fully revealing His authority. And I know that even now, when I don't understand all the answers, I have You with me, and that is all that matters. Please give me increasing eyes of faith to trust what You are doing, evenand especiallywhen I don't understand. I love You and I trust You, and I pray these things in Jesus' Worthy Name, Amen.

Thank You, Father, for the wonderful way that we have been created in Your likeness and for the amazing way that our bodies and minds function. Lord, I pray that You would enable me a deeper understanding of You, Your will, Your ways and Your person.

Teach me what You would have me do in the place where You have planted me. Help me day by day Lord, to fix the eyes of my heart and the gaze of my understanding on You. Use my hands and my feet to lift and carry others, and may I walk in the paths that You have set before me and not stray from Your will for my life.

Lord, I pray that the thoughts of my mind would be continuously upon You, so that I may speak only those things that are pleasing to You and think only those thoughts are honouring to Your name. I ask this in the name of Jesus,


Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, the trials and difficulties that surround us, seem at times to take up so much of our thoughts and prayers, but Lord I ask that You would give me a deeper understanding of how to pray into Your perfect and eternal will, for You have put eternity in my heart and I desire to pray in unity with Your Spirit and in line with Your will.

Teach me Lord, how to focus on my prayers on Your wider plan for man and all that You have purposed for the world, and give me a deep yearning to join my pleadings with Your perfect plans. May I seek first Your millennial kingdom rule on earth and Your eternal kingdom rule in the eternal ages to come.

It was the Lord Jesus Who said, My will is to the will of Him Who sent me and to finish His world, and Lord, I pray that You would develop in me an increasingly deep desire to carry our Your will and purpose in my life and prayers, and the understanding and discernment to know how to pray.

May You be glorified in my prayers and may my prayers and pleadings be aligned to Your will. In Jesus' name I pray,


Heavenly Father, thank You for sending the Lord Jesus to be my Saviour and for dying for me on the cross and paying the price for my sins. Thank You for giving us the Word of God that so beautifully opens up Your plan of redemption for mankind, and thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to live in me and to lead and guide me into all truth.

I pray Lord, that You would give me a deeper understanding of Your Word, Your plan for Israel and Your plan for the Church. I pray that as I read and study the scriptures, that my heart would be flooded with Your light, so that I can understand all that You would teach me. I pray that my understanding would cause me to live in a way that is honouring to You, and that I would draw closer to You with every passing day.

Father, I pray that You would open the eyes of my heart as I read, study and meditate on Your Word, so that I may see You more clearly and love you more dearly. In Jesus' name I pray,


O God, I am unworthy of the least of Thy favors. I freely acknowledge my need for understanding. I pray for Thy favor to rest upon my life, but know it cannot unless I so live that You can bless me with Thy Presence.

Help me, O God, guide me, strengthen me, open my understanding of Thy mind, will, and way. In return, I promise to serve Thee more faithfully and effectively.

Do Thou help me, for Jesus' sake,


Lord, teach me how to pray with understanding. Teach me I pray, how to pray into Your will, to pray in spirit and truth, to pray as You would have me pray.

Lord, I ask that as I come across various difficulties that people are facing that I hear with Your ears, see with Your eyes and understand with Your heart so that I may speak and pray into the situation as You would have me pray. In Jesus' name I pray,


Heavenly Father, I ask that you would give me an understanding and discerning heart. Help me to be slow to get angry but quick to response to the needs, disappointment and problems that others are facing.

Keep me Lord, from developing a judgmental spirit that can so often jump to the wrong conclusions, and prevent me from speaking too hastily, which can so often cause sadness and pain to those that are in need and trouble.

Lord, I want to be used by You as a channel of blessing and too often I speak out of turn and do not show the loving compassion that I want to show. Teach me Lord, how to relate to people and I pray that You would change me from the inside out to be the person that You would have me to be. In Jesus' name I pray,


Lord Jesus Christ, grant me the gift of understanding. Help me to understand the feelings of others, the desires of others, the goals of others. At the same time, help me to understand myself in my actions and reactions. Widen my vision beyond my own small world to embrace with knowledge and love the worlds of others. Help me, Lord, to always see you at work in my own life and in the lives of others. Bless me with insight, acceptance and love that is tempered by you who are all things to all men. Help me to understand, Lord. Amen.
