A PRAYER FOR ENCOURAGEMENT
Father, in the Name of Jesus we draw nigh unto you this day for we know that the Lord is nigh unto all that call upon Him; to all that call upon Him in truth. Father we know that every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the Father of lights with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1: 17) ; we know that whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty and continueth therein, he being NOT a forgetful hearer; but a doer of the work, this man shall be Blessed in his deed. (James 1: 25). So Father we bring the Prayer petition of ____________ ( name ) before you this day. Father, _________( name) (your name) is your precious child, your favorite child, we declare that favor goes before her/him and prospers her/his way. Father you have heard the prayer request of ________ ( name) regarding the matters of: _________________ and ______________. It seems that all kinds of temptations and tests surround _____________(name) and that her/his choices and strategies regarding what she/he will do are critical to a good outcome. So we go to your Word for direction which says: My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this that the trying of your faith worketh patience; But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire wanting nothing. Father your word says: If any of you LACK wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to ALL men liberally and upbraideth not; and it SHALL be given him. But let him ask in faith nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. James 1: 2-7) Father we therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace on ___________’s ( name) behalf in her/his time of need. (Hebrews 4: 16)
