A Prayer for the Family of God

This is just a great prayer incorporating
the promises of God into your daily life:

The original can be found here

“Bless the Lord, oh my soul and all that is within me, bless His Holy Name. Bless the Lord oh my soul and forget not all His benefits” (Psalm 103:1). 

Our Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus and according to Your good and perfect will, I lift up to You, those of us who are Your children. I pray according to Your Word in Psalm 103:3, that You will forgive all of our iniquities and heal all of our diseases. I pray that you will send health and healing in Mind, Body and Spirit to those of us in need of healing. I pray, Father, that as Your children, we will rest in the knowledge of 1 Pet. 2:24 that Jesus Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: I pray that by His stripes we are healed in mind, body and spirit of all illnesses, discomforts and diseases. I pray that as Your children, we will rest in You, knowing that, according Ps. 107:20, You sent Your word, and healed us, and delivered us from our destruction. I pray, according to 3 John 1:2,  that our souls will prosper in You through Jesus Christ, with the aide of the Holy Spirit and that we will indeed be prosperous and in health, even as our souls prosper.

I pray, Father, according to Phil.4:6-7 that we will not be anxious about anything, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, we let our requests be made known unto You, God. I pray that Your peace, which passes all understanding, shall keep our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  I thank You that according to Romans 5:5, Your love is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit.  I thank You, Father, that according to Rom. 8:28, all things are working together for our good because we love You, God, and are the called according to Your purpose. I pray according to Ps. 91:10-11 that there shall no evil befall us, neither shall any plague come near our dwelling, I thank You that You give Your Angels charge over us, to keep us in all our ways. I pray that You will put Your desires into our hearts so that Your desires are our desires. I pray according to Prov. 4:20-22 that we will attend to Your words; incline our ear unto Your sayings and will not let them not depart from our eyes; but keep them in the midst of our hearts. I pray according to Your promise, Father, that Your Word will be life to us and health to all our flesh.

Father, I know according to John 10:10 that the thief comes to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I thank You that Jesus came that we might have life, and that we might have it more abundantly. I pray that this abundant life is flowing through ever cell of our bodies, ever fiber of our being, bringing health and healing, in the name of Jesus. I pray that You will enable us to live fruitful lives in service to You daily. I pray, according to Phil.4:13, no matter what the situation, we can do all things and endure all things through Christ who strengthens us. I pray that in obedience to Your Word in Ecclesiastes 9:10,  whatsoever our hands find to do, we will do it with all of our might. I pray that we will wait on You and be of good courage and according to Your Word in Psalm 27:14, You will strengthen our hearts. I thank You, Father, that as we wait on You, according to Your Word in Isa. 40:31, You are renewing our strength so that we will mount up with wings as eagles and run and not get weary and walk and not faint.

I thank You, Father, that according to Phil.4:19, You are supplying all of our needs according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I thank You that according to Jer. 29:10-11, Your plans for us, as Your children, are for Good and not evil to give us hope and a future. Heavenly Father, as I pray Your Word for these important needs to be meet in our lives, I am standing firm on Your Promise in Isa.55:11, that Your Word shall not return unto to You void, but It shall accomplish that which You please, and It shall prosper in the thing whereto You sent It. I am believing You Father, and thanking You for all of Your provisions for us both spiritually and physically each and every day of our lives. To You God, be the Glory, the Power and the Majesty both now and forever. Amen.
