Daily Prayer for May 26

May 26, 2015
Peace in a Troubled Marriage
They email, they write, they call asking for prayer. A spouse, who may or may not be abusive, refuses to work, and is on drugs and/or has left and is now living with someone else – and the list goes on. More often than not they want us to pray that the mate will stop his addictions and/or return home. If only they could see beyond the present circumstances. Circumstances are temporal and subject to change; that which is eternal will never change. What does this mean in a troubled marriage? It means that the mate, who is born again, must hold up a pattern of right behavior in an unfortunate marriage. Not all marriages are made in heaven. Let go of obsessive thinking and compulsive behavior, let go of a victim mentality and do not allow this situation push you into spiritual shipwreck. Look to Jesus who is the author and finisher of your faith. F.B. Meyer writes: do not step down to the level of your circumstances, but lift them to your own high calling in Christ. (Commentary, Amplified Bible, page 350)

Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray that you will give _____ direction and the grace to obey you in all things. I use the keys You have given me, and bind the minds of this husband and wife to the mind of Christ, their wills to the will of God and their emotions to the control of the Holy Spirit. I loose wrong attitudes from them, destroy the power of all cutting, backbiting and profane talk. I pray that they will become gentle with one another, sensitive; forgiving one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave them in the name of Jesus. If one refuses to obey your Word, then Lord have mercy on his/her soul, and bring him/her to repentance. Your grace is sufficient as the born again spouse seeks to do your will for the good of his/her family. Amen

December 10, 2010


Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus, and find rest for my weary soul. Thank you for easing, relieving and refreshing me. Your yoke is wholesome—not harsh, hard, sharp or pressing, but comfortable, gracious and pleasant; your burden is light and easy to be borne. I cast my burden on you [releasing the weight of it] and you sustain me. You will never allow me to be moved—made to slip or fail, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Pleasing the Father
Jesus, You are my example, and I desire to live in the way that will not grieve the Holy Spirit. In Your name I resist unwholesome language, bitterness, improper use of anger, brawling, slander, and bad attitudes toward others. I forgive, just as my Father-God has forgiven me. May my attitudes and actions please God. I purpose to act in love toward my brothers and sisters in Christ, just as God acted in love by sending His Son to die for my sins. Amen

More Than a Conqueror

Who shall separate me from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril, or sword? For Your sake I am killed all day long; I am accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Yet in all these things I am more than a conqueror through Him who loved me. Hallelujah! Amen

Joint Heirs With Christ

Father, I thank You for loving me. I have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but I receive the Spirit of adoption by whom I cry out, “Abba Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with my spirit that I am a child of God, and if a child then an heir—heir of God and a joint heir with Christ, if indeed I suffer with Him, that I may also be glorified together with Him. Father, I love You because You first love me. Amen

Reconciled to God
Do you know that God isn’t holding anything against you? He no longer sees you guilty, but redeemed through the shed blood of Jesus. God reconciled you to Himself. When you received Jesus as your Savior, God gave you the ministry of reconciliation. He [personally present] in Christ, reconciled and restored the world to favor with Himself — that includes you. He is not counting up and holding against you your trespasses [but cancelling them]. God has committed to you the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor). Being reconciled to God, you can now take the word of reconciliation to others.

Father, I thank You for saving me from wrath through Christ. If when I was Your enemy, I was reconciled to You through the death of Your Son, much more, having been reconciled, I shall be saved by His life. I also rejoice in You through my Lord Jesus Christ, through whom I have now received reconciliation. I shall rejoice in You and be glad in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Spiritually Minded
It is possible to renew the mind to the Word of God. You can replace carnal thoughts of worry, fear, self-pity, and other self-defeating thoughts with peace. You can keep your mind filled with self-doubt, self-rejection and become self-absorbed — or you can become spiritually minded and change your self-image replacing negative thoughts with God’s thoughts toward you. Choose to be God-inside-minded.

Heavenly Father, I bind my mind to the mind of Christ, my will to the will of God and my emotions to the control of the Holy Spirit. I choose to walk according to the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, setting my mind on the things of the Spirit. To be spiritually minded is life and peace. I count myself dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Amen.

The marriage covenant is sacred; it is to be a reflection of Christ and the Church. The husband and wife are to be in submission one to the other out of reverence for their Lord. The husband is instructed to love his wife just as Christ loves the church, and live with her according to knowledge in order that their prayers will not be hindered. The wife is to honor and support her husband in ways that show her support for Christ. In other words a husband and wife are to learn to cooperate with one another, and accept each other’s individuality. Keep in mind that together you are heirs and joint-heirs with Jesus Christ, and help each other grow spiritually and fulfill your individual and corporate destinies. Love is not passive, love requires effort; it isn’t a feeling, but a decision.

Lord Jesus, I thank you for harmony in my marriage. Thank you for the tenderness that is expressed, promoting love and kindness. We are of one mind and we live in peace and harmony with each other. God’s peace and love dominates our marriage, home and family! Jesus is Lord! Amen

Daily Prayer for April 15

Friendship should never be taken for granted. Jesus calls you His friend, and He is a Friend that sticks closer than a brother. Throughout your life He sends different people to you. Some are friends for a season. God sends them to meet a special need, or for you to meet a special need for them, and then you move off in different directions. Others remain friends throughout life. God sends friends who share your disappointments, your hopes, your highs your lows. They see your faults and love you anyway. You learn to resolve conflict, trust one another. You become iron sharpening iron; helping each other grow in character, and in the love of God. God uses friendship to shape and mold us: If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7).

Father, I thank You for my friends. We are kind to one another, speaking words of grace into each other’s lives. We are there to laugh and cry together; we trust each other, encouraging one another in the Lord. We confess our faults to one another and pray for one another that we may be healed and restored to a spiritual tone of mind and heart. Thank You Jesus for teaching me how to be a good friend. Amen.

The Right Path
For many years I walked darkened pathways that were rocky. Here and there was a glimmer of light, and there appeared roads that emanated radiant beams of ight. Every time I tried to walk toward the light I would run into obstacles that turned into deadends. How could I find the path of life? On a glorious memorable day the Light broke through and the Pathway of Life lay before me. I could see and I could hear the Voice of my Father: This is the way. Walk ye in it! I read the Bible day and night. His word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path (Psalm 119:105). Read His Word, heed His Word; it is life to all who find it, and health to all your flesh!

Father, show me the path You want me to take and point out the right road on which I should walk. Today I deny myself and take up my cross and follow You wherever You may lead. Lead me beside the quiet waters; restore my soul. You are guiding me in paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake. You are my God and I will praise You in the name of Jesus. Amen.
