I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. Shall I lift up mine eyes to the hills? whence should my help come? My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Psalm 121:1-3
The purpose of prayer is to get our lives aligned with God.
Father God, you are faithful and righteous. You are ever lasting and ever present. Thank you for being our help. You do not sleep, neither do you allow us to be moved. You are our ever present help!
We want your will to be done and so whatever happens, help us go with your flow. I pray that you help us know your faithfulness. May you strengthen our convictions of your goodness and be able to rest in the love and care you have towards us. I ask you to take away all deception from our hearts and spirits, which cause us to go into a frenzy or questionable moods/attitudes. I pray you strengthen your people Jesus, all of us in our thinking, our attitude and behavior.
May we walk in the conviction that everything’s going to be okay. You know the end from the beginning, you know the twists and turns of our lives and you know our coming and goings, you know our end. Show us why you apprehended us. Bring your promises to pass, and give hope to those whose hopes have been deferred. Help us to rebuild our walls of confidence, of faith, of love, and of any other things we need individually. I pray you show us where the enemy has creeped in and what we need to war for. Help us to be like Nehemiah, who rebuilt the walls of his beloved Israel. Give us the tenacity of those great people in the Bible to be steadfast in you.
I pray that you give us boldness and courage, with a gentle spirit. Show us your glory Jesus and make our crooked paths straight. May you take away the reproach of our youth and all residue of disappointment. And give us the oil of gladness and garments of praise.
May there always be a praise on our lips Lord. May our mouths sing you new songs. May the nations exalt you. In Jesus name, Amen.
