One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When He finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray” - (Luke 11:1)

    “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one, for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.”
    (Matthew 6:9-13).

    1. "Our Father in Heaven"


    You have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” (Romans 8:15 NLT)

    God loves for us to call Him our Father. Establish your intimate relationship with Him and thank Him for the relationship you have with Him.

    2. “Hallowed be Your Name”


    God’s name is a place of protection—the righteous can run there and be safe. (Proverbs 18:10 MSG)

    What are His Names?

    Righteousness: He makes me clean

    Sanctifier: He has called me and set me apart Healer – He heals all my diseases - Banner of Victory – He has defeated my enemy - Shepherd – He speaks to me and leads me - Peace – He is my peace in every storm Provider– He supplies all of my needs - Savior, Deliverer - Jesus

    3. “Your Kingdom come,Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”


    He will always give you all you need from day to day if you will make the Kingdom of God your primary concern. (Luke 12:31 TLB)

    God’s priorities: Saving the Lost

    Guiding those in authority: parental, spiritual, governmental, workplace

    4. “Give us this day our daily bread”


    I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! (Psalm 121:1-2 NLT)

    Ask God for what you want and need and then trust Him for the answer.

    5. “Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors”


    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins  and purify us from all unrighteousness. 

    (1 John 1:9)

    Ask God to check your heart and motives. Receive His forgiveness for any area  that He brings to mind. 

    Forgive anyone who has offended you in any way. You can even forgive people in advance.

    6. “And do not lead us into temptation but deliver us from the evil one”


    For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12)

    Take your stand against the enemy and fight the good fight of faith. 

    Every lie that the enemy has told you should be replaced with the truth of God’s Word.

    7. “For yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever.”


    “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you”. (Jeremiah 32:17)

    End your prayer time by reminding yourself of God’s ability. Return to praise  and make your faith declarations. 

    “Yours is the Kingdom” – all rule belongs to You “Yours is the Power” – all  mightiness flows from You “Yours is the Glory” – Your victory shall be complete

  • The Prayer of Jabez

    And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested. (1 Chronicles 4:10)

    1. “Oh that you would bless me...” 

    Pray for Blessing.

    “Oh that you would bless me...” 

    Ask God to deposit what he has in you.  

    God wants to bless you with health. HE wants to bless you with ideas.  We need more of God’s blessing to be better equipped to make a difference for His Kingdom. We need more provision, more spiritual gifting, more wisdom, so that we can bless others with what God has given us.

    2. “Enlarge my coasts" 

    Pray for INFLUENCE

    “Enlarge my coasts" 

    Ask God to increase your influence! God wants to use you to influence people.

    God help me to live a life bigger than my own!  

    God make me effective in my sphere of influence, and open new doors for me to be able to influence and reach even more people. Help me to be a good steward of the responsibility You’ve entrusted to me. I pray for greater territory to impact for Your glory.

    3. "Let Your hand be with me"

    Pray for PRESENCE

    I can’t do it without you! I need your mighty hand on me!
    (Exodus 33:15-17) 
    Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?” And the LORD said to Moses, “I will do the very thing you have asked.”

    In humility, acknowledge your need for God’s presence. Depend on Him and ask for more of Him in your life today.

    “Lord, I know that without You, I am nothing. I cannot do what You’ve called me to do on my own. I am desperate for Your presence in my life. I depend on You completely. I recognize that the same Spirit who raised Christ Jesus from the dead lives in me. Through the power of Your Spirit, I pray that You will help me succeed in the opportunities You’ve given me. Thank You for being with me. I would never want to face today without You.”

    4. “Keep me from harm”

    Pray for PROTECTION

    Jesus has already won the victory so we don’t need to fear destruction. God promises to be with us and protect us, and because He is with us we have nothing to fear.

    Trust God to protect you. Tell Him specific areas where you feel the need for His protection and ask Him to cover areas that you can’t yet see.

    “God, as I walk out the purpose You have for my life, I pray that You will stop any and every attack of the enemy against me. Please protect my body, my mind, and my emotions. Don’t let the enemy get a foothold in my life. I pray, too, that You will protect my family and community from harm. I know that He that is in me is greater than the one who is in the world, so I have nothing to fear. Thank You for watching over me. I love You and I trust You.” In Jesus name!
