And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Father, with you are wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are yours. If you tear down, it cannot be rebuilt; if you imprisons a person, there is no escape. If you hold back the waters, then they dry up; if you release them, they destroy the land. With you are strength and prudence; both the one who goes astray and the one who misleads are yours. I am yours. Amen.

Job 12


Friday, August 21, 2009


O Lord God who delivers me! By day I cry out and at night I pray before you. Listen to my prayer! Pay attention to my cry for help! For my life is filled with troubles and I am ready to enter the pit.

Psalms 88


Thursday, August 20, 2009


Father, remind me to keep in mind the road I took when I veered off. To mark off in my mind the landmarks. To make a mental note of telltale signs marking the way back. You want me to return. To return to the King. How long will I act as an unfaithful son? For you, the Lord, light my way home! Amen.

Jeremiah 31


Wednesday, August 19, 2009


Father, thank you for the child that has been born to us, a Son has been given to us. He shoulders responsibility and is called Extraordinary Strategist, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His dominion will be vast and he will bring immeasurable prosperity. He will rule on David’s throne and over David’s kingdom, establishing it and strengthening it by promoting justice and fairness, from this time forward and forevermore. Your intense devotion to your people will accomplish this. Amen.

Isaiah 9


Tuesday, August 18, 2009


Father, though I have travelled the narrow road, I have become impatient along the way. My actions have spoken against you and your church. I have questioned your direction and authority with words like "Why" and "How". So you sent correction my way and my words changed to, "I have sinned, for I have spoken against you." Then I prayed to you, my King, that you would take away that correction, and you did, and you were patient along the way. Amen.

Numbers 21


Monday, August 17, 2009


Father, you are a protector for the poor, a protector for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the rainstorm, a shade from the heat. Though the breath of tyrants is like a winter rainstorm, like heat in a dry land, you humble the boasting foreigners. Just as the shadow of a cloud causes the heat to subside, so you cause the song of tyrants to cease.

Isaiah 25


Sunday, August 16, 2009


Father, you are my shepherd, I lack nothing. You take me to lush pastures, you lead me to refreshing water. You restore my strength. You lead me down the right paths for the sake of your reputation. Even when I must walk through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for you are with me; your rod and your staff reassure me. You prepare a feast before me in plain sight of my enemies. You refresh my head with oil; my cup is completely full. Surely your goodness and faithfulness will pursue me all my days, and I will live in your house for the rest of my life. Amen.

Psalms 23


Saturday, August 15, 2009


Father, one day I will see a river of the water of life as clear as crystal pouring out from your throne, flowing down the middle of that great city's main street. I will worship you and will see your face and your name will be on my forehead. Night will be no more, and I will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, because you will shine on me and we will reign forever and ever, Amen!

Revelation 22


Friday, August 14, 2009


Father, you visit the earth and give it rain; you make it rich and fertile with overflowing streams full of water. You provide grain for it, for you prepare the earth to yield its crops. You saturate its furrows, and soak its plowed ground. With rain showers you soften its soil, and make its crops grow. You crown the year with your good blessings, and you leave abundance in your wake. The pastures in the wilderness glisten with moisture, and the hills are clothed with joy. The meadows are clothed with sheep, and the valleys are covered with grain. They shout joyfully, yes, they sing. Amen!

Psalms 65


Thursday, August 13, 2009


Father, remind me that vengeance is yours. Keep me from avenging myself or my loved ones. I know it is alright to get angry but it is not alright to sin. Remind me not to let the sun go down on my anger. Keep me focused on your perfect justice. Amen.

Genesis 34


Wednesday, August 12, 2009


Father, remind me not to work for the food that disappears, but for the food that remains to eternal life, the food which the Son of Man will give to me. For you have put your seal of approval on him. I will make it my life purpose to do this deed that you require – to believe in the one whom you sent. To the one true Christ, I give all glory and honor! Amen.

John 6


Tuesday, August 11, 2009


Father, remind me that even my own hatred can be disguised within my words. Keep me from storing up deceit within me. For even though I may be able to conceal it, its evil will be uncovered one day. In Jesus name, Amen.

Proverbs 26


Monday, August 10, 2009


Father, remind me that my efforts which I expend on this earth cannot change your great plan for my life. My earthly accomplishments are like chasing the wind. Though it would seem that I am much wiser than the day I was born, able to discern the benefit of wisdom and knowledge over foolish behavior and ideas, I realize that with this progressive wisdom comes great frustration and heartache for that which I cannot control. This is why I rely on you. Amen.

Ecclesiastes 1


Sunday, August 9, 2009


Jesus, I know you are coming soon. I will hold on to what I have so that no one can take away my crown. Mold me into one who conquers, make me a pillar in the temple of our Father and never depart from me. Write on me the name of my God and the name of the city of my God. Train my ear to hear what the Spirit says. Amen.

Revelation 3
