Scripture

 SCRIPTURAL PRAYERS

God has given us the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. We need to use the Word of God in our prayers.

(These are my favorite. Bible is very rich, be creative and use Scripture that works for you at the time of your need.)

The Lord’s Prayer: “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and power, and the glory, forever. Amen.” (Matthew 6:9-13)

Psalm 23:1-4 (Good during the time of hardship): “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of shadow of death, I fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.”

Psalm 25:4-7, 16-22 (Good during the time of hardship): “Make me know Thy ways, O Lord; teach me Thy paths. Lead me in Thy truth and teach me, for Thou art the God of my salvation; for Thee I wait all the day. Remember, O Lord, Thy compassion and Thy loving kindnesses, for they have been from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to Thy loving kindness remember Thou me, for Thy goodness’ sake, O Lord. Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins. Look upon my enemies, for they are many; and they hate me with violent hatred. Guard my soul and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed, for I take refuge in Thee. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for Thee. Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his trouble.”

Psalm 91: ‘I dwell in the shelter of the Most High and I will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust!” For it is He who delivers me from the snare of the trapper, and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover me with His pinions, and under His wings I may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. I will not be afraid of the terror by night, or of arrow that flies by day; of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. A thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand; but it shall not approach me. I will only look on with my eyes, and see the recompense of the wicked. For I have made the Lord, my refuge, even the Most High, my dwelling place. No evil will befall me, nor will any plaque come near my tent. For He will give His angels charge concerning me, to guard me in all my ways. They will bear me up in their hands, least I strike my foot against a stone. I will tread upon the lion and cobra, the young lion and the serpent I will trample down. Because I have loved Him, therefore He will deliver me; He will set me securely on high, because I have known His name. I will call upon Him, and He will answer me; He will be with me in trouble; He will rescue me, and honor me. With a long life He will satisfy me, and let me behold His salvation.’ (Psalm 91 with slight modification to make it as a prayer, or read it as is from your Bible).
