Prayer is a time when sons and daughters of God commune their thoughts and desires with Him.  People pray for health, healing, answers and many other things. One thing that prayer can do is inspire people to get real with God. Here are 7 inspirational prayers.

Prayer for Peace of Mind

“Fortify me with the grace of Your Holy Spirit and give Your peace to my soul that I may be free from all needless anxiety, solicitude and worry.  Help me to desire always that which is pleasing and acceptable to You so that Your will may be my will.  Amen” ~ Francis Xavier Cabrini


“Merciful Lord, Day after day, the ocean stays in the boundaries You have set for it. Day after day, I go outside the boundaries You have set for me.  The reasons vary, but the result is always the same. I sin and fall short of the glory of God.  Lord, I am here at Your throne, desiring Your forgiveness. I thank You for Your mercy that is always ready to reach out to me. I confess my sins and I receive Your abundant pardon.  Lord, I ask for a fresh new motivation to follow Your will and Your ways. May my words and actions this day be pleasing in Your sight. Amen” ~ Beth McLendon


Most gracious Lord, Your love extends beyond the circumference of the earth into the vast universe and beyond.  There is not one single thing that you have created that cannot attest to Your love.  Your love was shown on the cross.  Your love was shown to me when you rescued me from the threshold of hell.  You ransomed me from all of my iniquity and I am so thankful, Father.  You love me in spite of all of my shortcomings.  Father I pray that you find me faithful as I extend Your love onto those who hurt me also.  May I always be ready to show love to anyone who does any injustice against me because You have shown your merciful love to me.  Thank you for your love! Amen


Prayer keeps us on the right path with God when we are constantly going to Him for guidance.

Prayer keeps us on the right path with God when we are constantly going to Him for guidance.

Dear Lord, I am so thankful to You for You are faithful in all of your promises.  You do not waver to the left or to the right.  You have made Your path straight and You accomplish Your will in all things.  I pray Lord that as You are faithful, I continue to be more faithful every day to You.  You were faithful all of the way to the cross.  I pray that You will help me to stay strong in the face of adversity and to remain faithful in my words and actions this day.  I praise Your Holy Name! Amen


Father in heaven, I know that the road ahead is full of mystery for me, but You know all of my steps already.  Lord, Your Word and ideals are oppressed every day in the world.  Lord, I will not back down, though.  I will stay strong in Your will and Your Word.  When people take Your name in vain, I will stand for You.  When people deny the existence of Jesus Christ, I will stand for Him.  When anyone attacks my faith, I will stand firm in the promises of Your Holy Word for You are truth, love and life everlasting.  I love you, Father, and I count it joy to be persecuted for You each day. Amen

Brotherly Love

Beautiful Lord, This world is full of hate and malice and sin.  Men and women all over the world will turn on one another today.  Lord, I pray that Your light will shine through me today as I encounter those on my journey.  I want to show brotherly love to anyone I can.  If You provide me the means, I will follow.  If there is a person who is hungry, I will feed them.  If there is someone who just needs a hug, I will hug them.  If there is anything that I can do for Your glory to show brotherly love to someone, I pray that Your will be done.  When people see me, I want them to see You, Father.  I praise Your Name! Amen

Your Holy Word

Father, In Your Word is life.  The Scriptures attest to Your omnipotence, omniscience and omnipresence.  Your Word brings a cleansing to my soul as You wash me with Your Scriptures.  Saturate me, Lord, in your promises revealed in the Bible.  Renew my mind daily to the precepts You have set for me.  Remind me always why I believe in You.  Show me Your steadfast love in the crucifixion in all 4 gospels.  Show me how to be strong through the book of James.  Show me how to love my spouse through the Book of Song of Solomon.  Give me answers to my tough questions in the book of Romans.  Ease my fears about the end times through the book of Revelation.  Father, You are my portion forever and I thank You for the Bible.  It is life-support for me.  It keeps me on Your paths. Amen


I hope these 7 prayers have inspired you to live out a life of truth in Jesus Christ. Prayer keeps us on the right path with God when we are constantly going to Him for guidance.  God bless you as you live a life worthy of the calling!
