A Prayer For You

A collection of prayers, reflections and meditations.

The Lord entrusts us with his gifts and graces and he gives us freedom to use them as we think best. With each gift and talent, the Lord gives sufficient grace and strength for using them in a fitting way. As the parable of the talents shows (Luke 19: 11-28), God abhors indifference and an attitude that says it’s not worth trying. God honors those who use their talents and gifts for doing good. Those who are faithful with even a little are entrusted with more! But those who neglect or squander what God has entrusted to them will lose what they have. There is an important lesson here for us. No one can stand still for long in the Christian life. We either get more or we lose what we have. We either advance towards God or we slip back. Do you trust in God’s grace to make good use of the gifts and talents he has given you?

Lord Jesus, be the ruler of my heart and mind and the master of my home and goods. Fill me with a generous and wise spirit that I may use the gifts, talents, time, and resources you give me for your glory and your kingdom.

The Will of God will never take you
Where the Grace of God cannot keep you
Where the Arms of God cannot support you
Where the Riches of God cannot support your needs
Where the Power of God cannot endow you.

The Will of God will never take you
Where the Spirit of God cannot work through you
Where the Wisdom of God cannot teach you
Where the Army of God cannot protect you
Where the Hands of God cannot mould you.

The Will of God will never take you
Where the Love of God cannot enfold you
Where the Mercies of God cannot sustain you
Where the Peace of God cannot calm your fears
Where the Authority of God cannot overrule you.

The Will of God will never take you
Where the Comfort of God cannot dry your tears
Where the Word of God cannot feed you
Where the Miracles of God cannot be done for you
Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

A special prayer for you to say each day ……


Lord Jesus. I come before you, just as I am.

I am sorry for my sins. I repent of my sins, please forgive me.

In your name I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works.

I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus, now and forever. I invite you into my life Jesus, I accept you as my Lord, God and Saviour.

Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul and spirit.

Come Lord Jesus, cover me with your precious blood and fill me with your Holy Spirit.

I love you Lord Jesus, I Praise you Jesus.

I thank you Jesus. I shall follow you every day of my life. Amen.

Mary my mother, Queen of Peace, St Peregrine the cancer saint, all you Angels and Saints please help me. Amen.

Say this prayer faithfully, no matter how you feel, when you come to the point where you sincerely mean each word, with all you heart, something good spiritually will happen to you. You will experience Jesus, and He will change your whole life in a very special way. You will see.
