Daily Prayers

I find it helpful to write out prayers for the things I regularly seek the Lord about.  Taking the time to fully write out a prayer can help me break out of the routine of merely saying prayers and into really praying.  They help me put to words what I truly desire in a situation, which then helps me line up my desires with what God would desire.

Here's a sampling of some of my daily prayers.  I offer them as an idea for you and your personal prayers to God.

Jesus, when it comes to our house and home, give us exactly what we need when we need it.  May we be grateful for what you've already given us.  Give us peace and direction about [any specific home we're looking into.]

Jesus, please protect me from sexual temptation.  When it does come, help me to pre-decide to act with purity by asking others to pray. May my desire be for your glory, to honor my wife and to inspire my sons.  Help me to NOT be motivated by my own glory.

Jesus, please draw my kids to you.  May they become followers of you who make disciples for you.  Help me to stay engaged as a parent and live and seek you as I would want them to.  Protect my boys from sexual impurity. According to your will, be preparing a wife for them who is following Jesus.

Do you have any prayers that you need to write out?
