“Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the gift of prayer! We as simple humans have the chance to communicate with the Almighty God of the universe! Let me never forget the awesomeness of this gift. Help me to always appreciate it and honor it with the kind of respect it deserves.
Lord, this gift was never supposed to be used for my selfish benefits. This is a gift that was meant to be passed onto others. I have a responsibility as a believer in Christ to pass the healing, sharing of burdens and my faith and trust in you onto others during my prayer time.
Help me to get out of myself. Help me to forget my selfish lists of wants, needs and desires. Give me a heart to see beyond myself. Help me to have the heart of God and to pray with a deep desire for the will of God to be done on this earth as it is in heaven. We are instructed by Jesus Himself to do this, yet it is has not been practiced. If it were, the world would have felt the love of Christ that we as believers were supposed to walk in.
Thank you, Lord for the faith that I do have. I pray that you increase it to be a double portion of what I had the day before. I pray over it to increase exponentially as time goes on. My faith will be unshakable. Lord, I pray for every believer to have a growing faith in you.
As my faith grows the power of my prayers grow in accordance to my faith. Thank you for this gift from you!
In the name of Jesus, I bind the demonic forces of selfishness, self-centeredness, self-righteousness and isolation to the spirit of balak. I pray that the love of God overflow into my prayer life. I will be happy to serve others even if it is just to take the time to stop and pray for them. I know the power of prayer and I know that this is a gift that is priceless. Thank you that because of Jesus, I have the power and authority to bring my requests to you, Lord. I am not worthy of this, but I am willing to walk in it. In Jesus’ precious name, bless me to be a blessing to others, Amen.”
