Dear Father, I come to you in prayer to receive what You have promised me so that my joy may be full (John 16:24). I’m in my secret place making humble prayers and I know you reward me openly (Matthew 6:6). I am coming to pray without ceasing to take hold of what You have promised me in your written and Rhema word (Luke 11:8, 1 Thessalonians 5:17). In between these spoken prayers, I pray in the Spirit so the Holy Spirit can intercede for me with groanings too deep for words (Romans 8:26). I pray throughout my days on all occasions. And I strive to steadfastly pray with all kinds of prayers and requests, always alert, never losing heart. I ask that you guide and protect all the Lord’s people, helping us to confess our sins to one another, and praying for healing. It is helpful to know that the prayers of a righteous believer are the most powerful and how I live affects my prayers (Ephesians 6:18)(Luke 18:1)(James 5:16).
I am not here praying to you today because I’m worried. I’m coming to make my requests known to you. (Philippians 4:6)(Colossians 4:2). You say I have not because I have not asked, so I’m asking. Because I’m fruitful for the kingdom of God, and I keep my fruit producing ongoing, I know You hear and answer my prayers (John 15:16). I daily fill myself with the word of God and I strive to do what it says to do in order to have my requests granted (John 15:7). I come to you Father believing that I receive what I pray for (Mark 11:24). I pray that only the will of God be done in my life, which gives me confidence in You. And since You hear me, I can know that whatever I have asked, I already have the petitions that I requested (1 John 5:14-15).
Father, thank you for showing me in your word how to pray. If it wasn’t for my High Priest Jesus Christ, I would have no access to You to pray this prayer! I wouldn’t be able to approach You on my own (1 Tim 2:5). Jesus Christ is my mediator to You, the one who is holy and undefiled, and gives me the ability to pray to my Father in heaven (Hebrews 7:26). I pray my prayers to You Father and it is You who answers prayers. I never pray to Jesus Christ, I do not ask Jesus anything. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ (John 14:14) but Jesus is not the one who answers prayers (John 16:23). Jesus represents me Father by making atonement for my sins before You (Heb 2:17).
An example of a right prayer is “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” (Matthew 6:9-13)(Luke 11:2-4). But at the same time, I don’t repeat this prayer vainly, or heap up empty phrases to try to impress You or others (Matthew 6:7).
Thank you for releasing Your angels to carry out Your word of truth as I speak your Word back to you as truth (Psalm 103:20). I call forth all of your promises that you have written out for me. You have given me all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. And so I take hold of them all to manifest in my life right now in Jesus’ name.
Thank you Father for making it clear in the scriptures how You want me to pray. In Jesus Christ’s name I receive your answers and I call them forth to manifest in my life now in Jesus’ name. I make my requests with urgency and with thanksgiving, knowing that You are listening. In Jesus’ name I have prayed. Amen.
