Praying From and For Your Soul

Okay, I'm being a TOTAL copy cat today! I just saw this over at our faithful sister Heidi's blog (if you've never, you've GOT to go visit this precious sister).

I hope this makes your heart cry out "YIPEEEE!!!" Like it did mine! ♥

Here are some ways to pray for yourself so that you're praying in sync with the way God works.

1. For the desire of my heart to be toward God and his Word.
Incline my heart to Your testimonies and not to gain.
(Psalm 119:36)


2. For the eyes of my heart to be opened.
Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law.
(Psalm 119:18)

3. For my heart to be enlightened with these “wonders.”
[I pray] that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened.
(Ephesians 1:18)


4. For my heart to be united, not divided, for God.
O Lord, I will walk in Your truth; unite my heart to fear Your name.
(Psalm 86:11)


5. For my heart to be satisfied with God and not with the world.
O satisfy us in the morning with Your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. (Psalm 90:14)


6. For strength in this joy, and endurance during the dark seasons.
[I pray that God] would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man. (Ephesians 3:16)


7. For visible good deeds and works of love to others.
[I pray that you] will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord...bearing fruit in every good work. (Colossians 1:10)


8. For God to be glorified.
Hallowed be thy name. (Matthew 6:9


9. In Jesus’ name.
He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, will he not also give us all things with him? (Romans 8:32)

  6. Oh darling, Sunny, you are too cute! I know, it was too good to pass up. I also read this over at Heidi’s blog…very good indeed! We just cannot say too much when it comes to edifying each other in God’s good Word.

    I dearly love you!

    You sister, heart to heart in the Lord,
    Hope :)
