Prayer for a Loving Heart

Father, I bow in prayer before You today, and ask that You, in Your great glory, give me the power of inner strength.  I pray that Christ will live in my heart and that my life will be strong in love and be built on love.  And I pray that I have the power to understand the greatness of Christ’s love – how wide and how long and how high and how deep that love is.  I pray for my loved ones who are struggling in their faith, that they would be able to experience Your inexhaustible love, that they might be filled with Your presence. With Your power working in and through me, You can do much more than anything I can ever ask or even imagine. I thank You for hearing my heart’s cry and answering my prayer. Amen.

A Prayer for Healing

Living Lord, Your love has held me and kept me through this illness. Now may your hope and healing lead me quickly to a place of restoration. O Lord the oil of your healing flows through me like a living stream. I choose to bathe in these clear waters each day. I keep my eyes on you, and trust that I will fully recover. I give you all that I am, and rest in your peace. I hold tightly to your promises. They are like a spring that overflows with goodness. I wait on you.

Strength when Weary

O Lord my God, thank you that you know my every need. You have promised that you will give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. Please help me to draw on your strength as I feel weak, to receive your healing when I feel pain and to know your comfort in the midst of my distress. You are the God of endurance and encouragement. Help me to live in perfect harmony with you and glorify you with my thoughts, words and deeds. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
