A Prayer to My Father

Updated on October 28, 2017



Father, we come in the name of Jesus to thank you for this glorious and wonderful day that you have made! We thank you Lord for your Word that you have given us as a guide as to how we should live! We Thank you Lord that the Word of the Old Testament was fulfilled through Jesus Christ our LORD! Father, Your Word is timeless it is ALIVE and powerful! We thank you Lord for your Holy Spirit that you have given us to be with us and guide us to all TRUTH!

Father we thank you that you allowed your Son Jesus Christ, who lived a PERFECT sinless life, to die on the cross for us in our place! He was YOUR WORD wrapped in flesh! For this we THANK YOU! He conquered sin in the flesh so He could be the only PERFECT example to each and every one of us both SAVED as well as the unsaved! “To be born of the virgin Mary! To suffer under Pontius Pilate, who was then crucified died and was buried. On the third day He arose from the dead! He then arose with ALL POWER! FATHER for this we THANK YOU!

We realize Father God it is because of your LOVE, GRACE and MERCY we exist! That we as your children are supposed to be “in the world but not of the world!” Father, I/ we thank you for your WORD you have given us to govern our lives by! Not in a legalistic rigid manner, but in a way that pleases you! We Thank you Lord, that you have already BLESSED us with every Spiritual Blessing through CHRIST JESUS!

We pray Lord that we continuously learn to live our lives in a way that your LIGHT is able to shine through us! Convict us and bring sincere repentance... Forgive us for any and all of our shortcomings, Lord! Thank you Lord for letting us know that we have a place in your body and you are not a respecter of persons! Help us to live before you in our homes, on the job, in the marketplace and wherever we are. Let us not pattern ourselves after the world. But let the world see you in us!

We pray that your Universal Church seeks your will above all else for you are returning for a Church without spot or wrinkle! Father give us the sincere desire to seek wholeheartedly above all else your spiritual discernment and wisdom so we are not deceived by the many deceptions and manipulations of man to pull us away from our center. “Create in us clean hearts and renew the right spirit within us!” Keep us on the straight and Narrow!

Help us Lord to look to You from which our help comes from as we overcome evil with GOOD! YOU are our LIGHT and our SALVATION, because of this we have no one to fear! We realize that you are ALWAYS with us to lead, guide and protect us from seen and unseen dangers! Father God we need you in a world that continues to put your principles for daily living on the back burner!

We realize Father that you can return at any moment! Help us Lord to prepare for your return daily as though we expect You to come at anytime. Again Father we thank you for all your Blessings, past present and future. Lord, we ask that YOU fill us with the presence of Your precious HOLY SPIRT! Continue to daily lead us in the path of RIGHTEOUSNESS for YOUR NAMESAKE! For it is in YOU “We live and move and have our being.” THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR OMNIPRESENCE! We ask these and all blessings; In the mighty Name of JESUS! Amen & AMEN! TO YOU HEAVENLY FATHER we give YOU ALL the honor & praise. Everyday; "To GOD BE THE GLORY!!!"

      James A Watkins, Marvelous! It is wonderful to know that the Lord knows us from the inside out and we can experience His presence at anytime and anywhere. It is so important that we take time to "BE STILL & KNOW!" It is utterly amazing to know that in His own divine miraculous way He is Omniscient, Omnipotent & Omnipresent....

      My brother we can always trust Him no matter what! "God is our refuge amd strength, an ever-present help in trouble" Therefore we should Praise Him at all times; for '"it is in Him we live and move and have our being!" In His time He will "work all things together for the GOOD!"

      You are so welcome! Your blessing is appreciated. Thank You! In HIS Love Grace, Mercy, Joy, Peace & Blessings! God Bless You as well in Jesus Name!

      Father, We Thank you for this day that you have made! We realize that it is only by your Grace that we remain on this side of Heaven.

      Father we pray for those all around the world who are hurting, for those who do not believe that you exist. We pray for those who have lost love ones, health and homes and are seeking shelter...We pray that those who are yours will share the "GOOD NEWS" which is the "GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST!" with them and give them HOPE!

      Lord we pray that we too continue to grow closer to you each and everyday and seek you FIRST for direction. Lord we realize that it is the Narrow Road that leads to you. Keep us forever seeking your Will and your Way in Jesus Name... Help us to live lives that are pleasing in your sight!

      We THANK YOU for you Son Jesus who died that we might partake from the Tree of Life...

      These precious things we ask the Father to give us are worth nothing to the unbeliever but to us they are as priceless and worth of far more treasure to us than our own lives!

      This is wonderful. Many love to celebrate Easter, but don't know exactly why we celebrate. Its because of the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ that we all can live everlasting. I am so grateful, that I can't help but to praise him and tell others about him. This is an awesome prayer, not only for this season, but in our daily walk. Thank you for sharing this masterpiece!
