If My People Will Pray...

NOTE: The example prayers listed below are exactly that! They are not intended to replace your own feelings. Confess how you feel to God and don't expect anyone to speak for you except the Holy Spirit who intercedes for you before the Father. He, on the other hand, even understands your groans when you can't speak and pleads your case when you do. You can use these examples as a primer in order to get started, but ask the Holy Spirit to help you.

Praying for myself...
Bless me with spiritual discernment and use me to help others.
Give me the confidence to speak your Word boldly today.
Use me to do your work and allow me to praise your Name once more.
Restore my soul, extend my bondaries and bless my ministry.
Magnify the work of my hands to bring glory to your Name.
Make the desires of my heart the absolute same as Yours, Father.
Help me to stand when I want to quit.

Turn my mistakes into learning experiences.
Make a way where I can't see one now.
Give me strength and means to continue serving.
May depression not find an open door in my house.
Sharpen the tools of ministry in my possession.
Don't let me give up running the race out of futility.
Use me today to do what You desire.
Use me to do something extraordinary today.
Open the door where previous failures have seemingly closed them.
Give me passion for your Word.
Use me anyway you will.
Give my blessing to those I serve.
This day for extending Your love to someone who doesn't know it.
Remind me often today why I serve You.
Feed my thirst with streams of Living Water.
Use me to do great things of which I know not.
Help me be more effective helping others.
Use me to accomplish what You desire.
Honor to serve Your cause.
-->Your way, not mine.
