 If you have a problem, tell Jesus about it.


We know God will answer our prayers because the Bible says so:


“We are sure of this, that he (God) will listen to us whenever we ask him for anything in line with his will. And if we really know he is listening when we talk to him and make our requests, then we can be sure that he will answer us.” 1 John 5:14-15


How do we know when we are praying in line with his will? When we pray verses from God’s Word, the Bible, we know we are praying in line with his will. 


The prayers below are structured from the Bible.


  • Prayer of praise and thanksgiving

  • Prayer for peace

  • Prayer for healing

  • Prayer for fear

  • Prayer for protection

  • Prayer for others

  • Prayer for the workplace

  • Prayer for forgiving

  • Prayer of dedication

  • Prayer of deliverance

  • Prayer for your church or missionary

The famous Lord’s Prayer starts with, “Our Father.” Are you a member of God’s family and able to call him ‘Father’?  Click here for a carton flash presentation that will help you have a personal relationship with God and become his child.



Prayer of praise



I praise you forever, O LORD! You are great and powerful, glorious, splendid, and majestic. Everything in heaven and earth is yours, and you are king, supreme ruler over all.


In your hand is power and might; and it is in your hand to make great, and to give strength to all.


1 Chronicles 29:10-13


Prayer for peace


“Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks. And God’s peace, which is so great we cannot understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7


Thank you, Lord Jesus, for giving me your peace.  I give all my anxieties and concerns to you (be specific) because I know that you will care for me.


Thank you for blessing me today as I choose to think on things that are positive and pure.



Prayer for healing


“Christ carried the burden of our sins. He was nailed to the cross, so that we would stop sinning and start living right. By his cuts and bruises you are healed.” 1 Peter 2:24


“God's promise came true, just as the prophet Isaiah had said, "He healed our diseases and made us well."  Matthew 8:17


Thank you Jesus that you died not only for my sins but also for my sicknesses.


In your wonderful Name I stand against the powers of darkness and command this infirmity to leave. 


Thank you, Lord Jesus, for healing me of (be specific as to what you want healed).



Prayer for fear


“I am the Lord your God, who holds your right hand, and tells you, “Don’t be afraid. I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13


Lord Jesus, today I am feeling afraid about (tell him your fear). I give this to you and ask that you take me by the right hand and help me.  



Prayer for protection


This prayer will help you depend on Jesus and in so doing protect you from the devil’s attacks. This is how you put on the armour of God.


“Put on the full armour of God so that you can fight against the devil’s evil tricks.” Ephesians 6:11


Thank you Jesus that your truth frees me from sin and its consequences. Help me to recognize the deceptions and lies of the evil one so I can replace them with your truth.


Thank you Jesus that others will see your good and holy nature through all I do and say today. Fill me with your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.


Thank you Jesus for directing my steps as I depend on your power today. Help me to show others your love and share with them how they can know your peace.


Thank you Jesus for promising to care for me when I trust you. Replace my fears and doubts with your faith as I ask you to help me with the challenges I face today (be specific).


Thank you Jesus that your salvation is blessing me with your goodness in every area of my life – healing, providing, protecting and delivering me from sin.


Thank you Jesus for your Word.  It is written in the Bible that you triumphed over all the powers of darkness when you died on the cross, and through your blood, I will overcome today.


Ephesians 6:10-18, John 8:32, Galatians 5:22, Acts 1:8, Mark 11:22-23,

Acts 4:12, Revelation 12:11, Colossians 2:15.



Prayer for others


God’s weapons to pull down strongholds in people’s minds are: Jesus’ name, his blood and his Word.


“These weapons can break down every proud argument against God and every wall that can be built to keep men from finding him.  With these weapons I can capture rebels and bring them back to God, and change them into men whose hearts’ desire is obedience to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5 T L B


Father, your Word says that you want everyone to turn from their sins.


I thank you that I can use your mighty weapons to destroy everything that would try to stop (name individuals) from seeing your truth.


I take these mighty weapons now and declare that your Word says, (insert their names) have been purchased through your blood.


In Jesus’ name, I destroy every reasoning, belief system, negative thought and attitude, including every bit of pride that is stopping (their names) from knowing you.


Thank you Jesus for replacing every deceptive thought with your truth and for leading them to yourself.


2 Corinthians 4:4, 2 Pewter 3:9, Revelation 5:9, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5.


Here is an additional special promise you can claim if you are praying for your children.


“I will fight your enemies, and will save your children.” Isaiah 49:25b


God, you have promised in your Word to fight for me and save my children. I claim this promise for my children today, in Jesus’ name. Amen.



Prayer for the workplace


Thank you, Heavenly Father, for supplying my needs today from your abundant resources. 


Thank you for freely giving me your peace, in exchange for anxiety. Your love, in exchange for fear. Your joy, in exchange for heaviness. Your faith, in exchange for doubt. Your strength, in exchange for weariness.


Lord Jesus, your Word tells me that the same Spirit that raised you from the dead dwells in me. I need your power to help me to be in the world, but not of the world.


I yield myself to you and ask the Holy Spirit to enable me to be efficient, creative and honest. Help me to work today with integrity, diligence, self-control, faithfulness and forgiveness.


Your Word also declares that, if I lack wisdom, I can ask you and you will give it generously.  I need your wisdom today, Lord Jesus, to enable me to make correct choices.


In the Name of Jesus I forbid the enemy’s schemes that would rob me of productive time by attacking me emotionally, mentally, physically or financially and claim your protection in every area of my life.


Help me to sow seeds of life, bringing encouragement and edification to those I meet.  Thank you, Lord Jesus, for opening opportunities to share your love today.


Jeremiah 32:17, Daniel 11:32, Hebrews 10:19, Philippians 4:19,

Romans 8:11, 1 John 2:15, James 1:5, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, Ephesians 3:20



Prayer for forgiving


“When you are praying, if you are angry with someone, forgive him so that your Father in heaven will also forgive your sins.” Mark 11.25


Heavenly Father, you are kind and forgiving, and you always love me. Help me to love others with the same love that you have shown me.


I take responsibility for disobeying you by holding a grudge and not forgiving others as you have forgiven me. Please forgive me.


Help me to obey you by forgiving those who have hurt me. I choose now to forgive the wrong and hurt that has been done to me. I forgive (name individuals, including yourself if necessary) for (list the things they did to you) and I no longer blame them for doing this to me. Release me from any resentment, bitterness, anger or hate I have held inside.


Father, as you have promised in your Word, please heal my wounded heart. I choose now to show mercy to those who have offended me and ask that you will bless (name individuals) in all that they do.


Psalm 86:5,Romans 5:5,2 Corinthians 10:5, Psalm 147:3,Luke 6:27,1 Peter 3:9



Prayer of dedication


“May your Kingdom come; may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10


Lord Jesus, may your will be done in every area of my life.


Cause me to hear your voice today for your word says, "My sheep hear my voice, and they follow me.” 


Open my eyes that I may clearly see wonderful things in your Word.


Set a guard over my mouth O Lord, and keep a watch over the door of my lips.


Whatever my hands find to do, help me to do it with all my might.


Help me obey your Word, for it says to love you with all my heart. I love you Jesus and desire to follow your principles in my life today.


John 10:27.KJV, Ephesians 1:17, Psalm 119:18.TLB, Psalm 141:3, Ecclesiastes 9:10, Matthew 22:37,



Prayer of deliverance


“With your help we pushed back our enemies. In your name we trampled those who came against us.” Psalm 44:5


In the Name of Jesus and in the power of the Blood, I forbid the hindering spirits of frustration, fear, confusion, deception and unbelief from affecting my life, and I release the Spirit of the Lord, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might; the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.


In the Name of Jesus and in the power of the Blood, I forbid the hindering spirits of selfishness, control, jealousy, fighting and anger and I release the spirit of love.  For love is patient; love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast, it is not proud or rude or self-seeking; it is not easily angered or keep any record of wrong.


Galatians 5:16, Galatians 5:22, Isaiah 61:3 K J V, Isaiah 11:2, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, Matthew 18:18



Prayer for your church or missionary


I pray dear Heavenly Father, that (your Pastor or Missionary) will know what you want them to do today.  I ask that they will have wisdom, understanding and discernment in spiritual things.


Help them Lord Jesus, to know you better and live the kind of life that honours and pleases you in everything they do and say.  Strengthen them by your great power so that they will keep going what ever happens – always full of your joy.


I give thanks to you dear Father for (your Pastor, their spouse and children).  Hedge them from every attack of the enemy.   I claim that everything they set their hands to do shall prosper and that they be kept in health.


Colossians 1:9-11, 3 John 2, Psalms 1:3


Claim a protected church


Thank you Lord Jesus that according to your Word you have promised to cover us with your feathers and under your wings we will find refuge.  I pray that you will be a refuge and fortress to our fellowship, and deliver us from every attack of the evil one.


 Psalms 91:4


Claim a loving church


I pray that our church will be rooted and established in love. Help us to fully understand how wide and lo
