Prayer to invite Jesus Christ into my life,


If you have heard the voice of the Lord and are ready to invite the Lord Jesus Christ into your life and allow Him to have His rightful place as Lord over your life, you can do so by praying this prayer.

Heavenly Father, I thank you for giving your Son Jesus Christ, to die in my place for my sins. I realize my sin has separated me from you. I confess that I have lived my life independent of you Lord and that is sin in your sight. Lord I am asking you now to forgive my sins against you. I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, and I believe Jesus was raised from the dead, just as the Scriptures has said, and I will stand before Him one day to give account of myself to Him. Today I willingly turn from my own efforts to get into Heaven and place all my trust in you Lord Jesus as my Savior and my Lord. I ask you Lord Jesus to come into my life and change me until I am what you created me to be. Teach me through your word Lord Jesus what it means to follow You and live my life daily by the power of your Holy Spirit. I ask this in your name Lord Jesus ,… Amen


If you have made the decision to pray this prayer know this,.. the angels of God are rejoicing in Heaven around the throne of God right now. We also want to rejoice with them here on the earth. It was Jesus Christ Himself that told us that the angels are rejoicing in Heaven.

"Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?  And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!' 10 Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.".........( Luke 15:8-10 )

If you have invited Jesus Christ into your life God bless you and keep you. This is a great time to read the blog post, "Is it really necessary to go to church".

If you have chosen not to receive God's gracious gift of eternal life at this time by inviting the Lord Jesus Christ into your life belove, always treasure this truth from the very throne of God,.. that there is no other name under heaven whereby we can saved, but through Jesus Christ alone. There is no other way to get into Heaven but through Jesus Christ. There is no other way to be acceptable to God and avoid the coming judgment of God, but through Jesus Christ. All of Heaven waits to rejoice on the day you invite Jesus Christ into your life. What a day of rejoicing that will be.



Prayer for help in times of temptation


During times of temptation belove we are called to remember the faithfulness of God and keep that which God has said before our eyes and make His promises the meditation of our heart by continually reciting them in your prayers to God. Jesus shared with us two thigs we all should be doing, when He said,...

Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” ....(Matthew 26:41)


Then we are called to bring the word of God to bear on our situation,..by speaking those things God actually said into our prayers as we pray, about our situations and circumstances, we find ourselves in.

"No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it…...(1 Corinthians 10:13).

Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips. Do not incline my heart to any evil thing…. (Psalms 141:3-4)


So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God...( James 1:19-20 ).


For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled………( 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 )


God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble....( Psalms 46:1 )


He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty...I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust." ...... (Psalms 91:1-2)

Heavenly Father, thank you that You are always a present help in the times of my temptations Thank you that even when I am faithless your word says that you abided faithful. Incline my heart to do what is right in your sight as I deal with the issues going on in my life right now. I ask for wisdom and the strength that you supply to know when to walk away when I am tempted, and insight to see the way out that you provide. Grant me the strength to hold my peace and the wisdom to avoid wrong paths and hasty decisions. Grant me the grace to bring every thought captive to the obedience of my Lord Jesus Christ so that in this time of temptation you are glorified in my life. Thank you Lord, for your faithfulness to keep me from falling.

In Jesus’ name,.. Amen

Prayer for direction

God desires you to know His will when you invite Him into your life, but He wants you to have an earnest desire to know His will as He looks at our heart and our motives for wanting His counsel. He says,..

If you cry out for discernment, And lift up your voice for understanding, If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, And find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; He guards the paths of justice, And preserves the way of His saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice, Equity and every good path....( Proverbs 2:3-9 )


If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.....( James 1:5 )

The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant….(Psalms 25:14)

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;

 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.....( Proverbs 3:5-6 )

Heavenly Father, you created me for your purposes. I ask that you teach me your ways and direct me into your plan for my life. Fill me with the knowledge of your will with all wisdom and spiritual understanding so that i may walk worthy of you Lord, seeking to please you. Grant me the grace to know that you see every thought and every motive that is behind everything I do and that you are always concerned about those things that concern me. Teach me to wait upon you Lord and not lean to my own understanding knowing that your ways are better than my ways and your thought are higher than my thoughts. Help me to be at peace knowing that as my Heavenly Father, you will instruct me and teach me in the way i should go and that you will guild me with your eye. Put into my heart reverence for your will for me so I desire your will more than my own. In Jesus name.. Amen.

Prayer for Anxiety and Depression

In the mist of troubling times in our lives, we are called to remember the faithfulness of God who has for His own purposes allowed those times. We are to remember the promises of God, that He will never leave us or forsake us. He is right there with you in the mist of all the turmoil, and then finally, we are to remember the power of God. That God is able to keep you from falling and bring you through whatever situation you find yourself in because He is Lord also over your circumstances. Belove always remember this, that trouble don’t last always


Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus…( Philippians 4:6-7)


Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things..(Philippians4:8)

But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.....( 1 Peter 5:10-11 )

 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you……( Matthew 6:31-33)


Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit…. (Psalms 51:12)

Heavenly Father thank you for the grace to believe you will never leave me or forsake me.  So, even as I go through seasons of anxiety and depression my eyes are upon you. Thank you for the grace to know you will use the difficult times in my life to increase my faith and strengthen my trust in you Lord and cause me to understand you are greater than anything I face in my life, even seasons of depression as I look to you to see me through it. Thank you that though weeping my endure for a while during the night seasons of my life, joy will come again in the morning seasons of my life as I set my mind on you Lord and those things you spoke in your word about the purpose of trials you allow in my life. Heavenly Father I ask that you strengthen me by your Spirit so I can me set my mind only on whatever things are true, and whatever things are honest and praiseworthy and of good report, so I don’t get discouraged. Lord, would you put a new song in my heart right in the mist of my troubles and fill my heart with gratitude and thanksgiving so that I can praise you Lord, in spite of my circumstances. May the joy of the Lord be my strength and may the peace of God that surpasses even my understanding keep my mind by the power of your Spirit Lord.  In Jesus name....Amen





One of the hardest lessons you will have to learn in walking with God is waiting on the Lord. Depending on what God allows in our life, we will be learning that lesson many times over. That’s because of our tendency to want things to happen on our timetable.  God’s plans are perfect, ours are not. So, we must learn the hard lesson of trusting God not just in the good times even more during the hard times that come into our lives. We have to learn what it means to turn everything over to Him, because we trust Him to act on our behalf.  Whatever it is that concerns you, God can handle it and you and I can be sure he will handle it at just the right time. That is what we learn as we look at the lives of those who have gone before us who trusted in God. Someone once said, “God is not a slave to the human clock”.


Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed…..( Psalms 25:3 )


Wait on the LORD;  Be of good courage,  And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!   ..( Psalms 27:14)


Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him……..( Psalms 37:3-7 )


​I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me,  And heard my cry( Psalms 40:1)


Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,  casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you….( 1 Peter 5:6-7)


And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority…….( Acts 1:7)


“Heavenly Father, thank you for the encouragement I get as I look at the Scriptures. They are a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. I believe you Lord when you say those who wait on you will not be ashamed. Lord, I ask for your abundant grace to strengthen me to rest in you and to commit my way to you under your authority, knowing that you see what I can’t see and you know what I don’t know and therefore you sovereignly do everything needed at just the right time to bring about your perfect will and your greatest glory. Lord, when I am impatient as I confess, I can be at times, help me to remember that you are never too early or too late, but you are always right on time,.. so grant me the grace to trust in you always,

In Jesus’ name ..Amen
