Do you struggle knowing what to pray? Many times, we know we need to pray, yet the right words never seem to come to our minds.
One of the greatest tools we have to help our prayer life is the use the Scripture. Below you will find three categories- Seeking God with all your heart, sensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and prayers for new believers.
We hope these passages will help you on your journey with your Lord.
Seeking God with all of our hearts.
Psalms 27: 7-8 Hear my voice when I call, Lord; be merciful to me and answer me. My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Psalms 42:1-2 “As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?”
Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it will be given to you, seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Greater sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
John 14:26 “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
John 16: 13-14 “However, when He, the Sprit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth:for he will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me , for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you’”
Revelation 2:7 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” God’s total purpose to be fulfill individually and corporately.
Colossians 1: 9-14 “For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Harvest of new believers.
Luke 19:10 “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
John 16:7-8 “Nevertheless, I tell you the truth, It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:”.
Matthew 9:36-38 “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like a sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, 'The harvest truly is plentiful , but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
