Daily Prayer of Expectancy
Father in heaven, great and powerful and full of love, I lift my heart in praise for the privilege of coming to You in prayer. Give me special grace as I join Your exalted Son in His ministry of prayer.
Search my heart, Lord, and show me if any sin is hindering Your work in my life. May I respond without delay whenever You make me conscious of sin. How grateful I am for Your total forgiveness the moment I confess my sin, turning back to You as my Lord!
And Father, teach me to pray. How much I yearn to know Your will and Your way. I thank You that Your Son lives within me. What a joy to know that He is my teacher – that through Him I can learn to pray. I can learn to release Your boundless power for both my needs and the needs of many others, near and far. Teach me to pray.
Day by day may Your Spirit work in me, motivating me to abide in Christ and pray in faith, moving Your mighty hand to fulfill Your purposes. Keep reminding me that You are able to do infinitely more than I would ever dare to ask or imagine, by Your mighty power at work within me.
To You be the glory both now and forever.
Prayer for God’s Blessing on Your Work and Daily Activities
Lord, my highest good is to have You near. And how wonderful that You want me to come near to You, that You delight to see my face and hear my voice. You want me to walk close to You all day long, resting my heart in the joy of who You are. Enable me to do this more and more each day of my life.
How incredible of You, gracious Master, to call all of Your children to serve as Your ambassadors in all that we do in our daily lives. How encouraging it is to know that every task that I undertake as Your servant on earth is Your work, even when it is the smallest of things or tasks! And that through daily prayer that I can put You into all of my daily activities, my work, my marriage, my parenting, my spiritual walk with You, my service, and even in my free time and hobbies.
I commit all that I do into Your loving hands and ask that You work in and through me daily. Give me the grace to do all of my tasks for You, putting all of my heart into it, no matter what it is. Keep me depending on You for strength and wisdom all through the day and every day of my life. (Here you can pray specifically about things that you might be doing.)
Lord, You alone can give true significance to my work and all my activities. So this is why I call on You to prosper all that I do. Let Your favor be upon me always, and give permanence to all that I do.
May I be able to spread the fragrance of Christ to everyone that my life touches today and all days. Make me a gracious witness to those who don’t know You yet and a blessing to those who do know You.
I ask this in Your name Lord, Jesus Christ.
