CHRISTIAN PRAYER


 

DEAR LORD


Please guide me

To do Your will, not mine

To serve You,

by serving others

To please You

and not myself

But let my pleasure in life

come from pleasing You
++++++



CALL TO GOD


I call to God, and He is there

I cry to God, He hears my prayer

I reach for Him, He comes to me

His love is mine, eternally


When I’m alone, He takes my part

When sorrow comes, He heals my heart

When I’m afraid, He stills my fear

In everything, He’s always near
++++++

 
A WILLING CAPTIVE
 
Take captive every thought Lord,

every thought and every deed

Take captive all my life Lord,

for it’s You alone I need

Make me a prisoner now Lord,

of Your love that sets me free

Then free, I choose to be Your slave

through all eternity
 

Take captive every thought Lord,

take captive every deed

Take captive all my life Lord,

for it’s You alone I need

Please change me and transform me

and make my life anew

Take captive all my life Lord,

and make me more like You
++++++

 

KEEP PRAYING
 

When we need help,

it’s to God we pray

But there is one thing

that you should say

“Whatever I pray for,

I will gain

only if it glorifies His name”
 

He always answers

your every prayer

He never fails,

for He’s always there

But how He will answer

is His choice

Just wait patiently

to hear His voice

 
Keep praying,

talking and listening too

In His time,

His words will come to you
++++++
 

MY PRAYER
 
Two ears, one mouth,

Dear Lord I pray

That I remember every day

To listen moreand speak much less

And use my silence,Lord, to bless

The hurting heart

that needs to speak

The longing mind

that yearns to seek

And through my quiet,

Lord, I pray

You bless each listener

every day
++++++

 

THANK YOU GOD
 
All my trust I place in Thee

And from fear You set me free

All my hopes fulfilled in You

Faithful God, for ever true
++++++

 

PSALM 121
 
Shall I look to the world

when I am in need

No, I look to Him who made

the world, God indeed

He won’t let me stumble

or fall in the deep

For He’s always watching,

He’s never asleep

He’s there to defend me

through day and through night

He saves me from badness

and keeps my life right

He watches me always

from heaven above

And guides me for ever

with His perfect love
++++++

 

BELOVED LORD

Beloved Lord,

You’re all I need

Take every thought

and every deed

Just let me be

Your willing slave

For Your approval,

Lord, I crave

Please let me serve

You to the end

To be Your daughter

and Your friend

Let all my life

and all I do

Be dedicated

unto You
++++++

 

DEAR SWEET JESUS
 

Dear sweet Jesus,

You are my best friend

Through thick and thin

on You I depend

When I’m feeling down

You pick me up

If I am empty,

You fill my cup

Together in happiness

we rejoice

In my songs of praise

I hear Your voice

You are my Father

and my brother

Beside you Lord

there is no other

Dearest Jesus,

lover of my soul

With You alone Lord

I am made whole
++++++

 

MY WISH

 
My earnest wish,

my true desire

The thing to which

I most aspire

Is just to please

my Lord and King

In all I do,

in everything
++++++

 

PENITENT
 

I know I’m guilty of pride

My sins I just cannot hide

I feel so dirty inside

NOW is the time I must seek Him
 

I’m ashamed of the lies I’ve said

I’m not happy the path I tread

My failings go round in my head

NOW is the time I entreat Him

My sins are ever before me

The sins that, Lord, are against thee

Bondage that You alone can free

NOW is the time I beseech Him

 
Purge me Lord and I shall be clean

Wash me Father whiter than snow

Make me hear joy and gladness, Lord

And your peace again I shall know
 

Create in me a clean heart God

A right spirit renew within

Fill me with Your presence Lord

And keep my poor soul from sin
++++++
 

CHANGE ME

Please work in me Lord

and change me

To Your will and design

That all I say and think and do

Is Your will, Lord,

not mine
++++++

 
ONLY THEE
 
Take away earthly thought,

and leave only thoughts of thee

Take away my selfishness

that Your child I may be

Change my way of thinking

and replace my every word

Till I belong completely

and wholly to my Lord
++++++
 
 

BE MY LORD
 
Be my strength when I am weak

And my guide whose path I seek

Be my help in times of stress

Slow to anger, quick to bless

Be my friend who’s always there

Showing how You love and care

Be my joy in life each day

As I walk the better way

Be my light ere darkness fall

Be my life, my love, my all
++++++

 

HOW GREAT

How great is God Almighty,

the Father and the Son

The Spirit all united,

Holy Blessed One

His hand doth guide our passing,

His word our hearts obey

Oh take our lives and change us,

Beloved Lord we pray
++++++

 

PURGE ME
 
Purge me Lord,

and I shall be clean

Wash me Father,

whiter than snow

Make me hear joy

and gladness Lord

And your peace again

I shall know

Create in me

a clean heart, God

A right spirit

renew within

Fill me with

Your presence Lord

And keep my

poor soul from sin
 
++++++
 

FIRST LOVE
 
You are my first love and my last

You are my future and my past

You are my night, you are my day

My everything in every way
++++++

 
DEAR LORD
 
Please guide me

To do Your will, not mine

To serve You,by serving others

To please You

and not myself

But let my pleasure in life

come from pleasing You
++++++

 

FILL ME

Fill my heart and fill my soul

Change my life and

make me whole

Let Your blessed spirit fall

And fill me Lord,

become my all
++++++

 
PLEASE HELP US, LORD
 
We need your help Lord,

please hear our cry

For we can’t help asking

“why oh why?”

We’re so confused and

we just don’t know

The best thing to do,

the way to go

Please help us Father,

we trust in you

We know You’ll show us

just what to do

Please help us hear

Your voice, and obey

Please lead us God,

and show us the way
++++++

 

PRAYER FOR A LOVED ONE

May my care for you take your pain away

And may my love strengthen you day by day

May all of the joy you bring my way

Return to you doubly to brighten your day
++++++
 

OH PERFECT GRACE

O perfect Grace,
what perfect Love
What wondrous blessings
 from above
To save a sinner such as me
To change my life
and set me free
++++++



STRESSED OUT

I don´t know why I am feeling sad
It scares me that I feel so bad
The anger flares and I scream and shout
There´s pain inside that must get out
I ask myself what can I do
And I know the answer is - turn to You
++++++
 


 FEELING LOST

Give me help Lord, I beg of you
Give me peace Lord, make my heart new
Renew my spirit, Lord, ease my pain
Give me Your joy in my life again
++++++

 
     A HURTING WORLD

It hurts to see a hurting world
and not be able to change things for good
It hurts to see my loved one´s needs –
I would help so much if only I could
I feel the pain of helplessness,
the ache to help but I just don´t know how
I cry to God, please hear my prayer,
to give me the means to help others now
I cast my burden on You Lord,
please guide all my life and show me Your way
My worries now I give to You
and receive from You sweet peace every day
++++++
