Prayer to keep God present

It happens to all of us. You feel so full of the Spirit, then suddenly things go wrong. It’s as if you forgot about God altogether. Even though God is the owner of all grace, being aware of negative behavior is important.

When our flesh gets out of control, we become angry or impulsive. The solution begins with personal prayer asking for the Lord’s help. Little by little, he changes your character. Don’t expect to get things perfect or have big change right away. Work on it and let God work on you.

Some people have a tendency to bring out the worst in you — so remember to prepare your heart and mind. Ask the Holy Spirit to get you ready. Stay focused on Christ instead of conflict or insults.

And when you mess things up, don’t give up. Don’t let the enemy win. Instead, go back to Jesus. Ask for forgiveness and begin again.

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:9

…so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,

Colossians 1:10

He has showed you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:8

Dear merciful Lord,

In silence and prayer I feel your presence. Yet back in the world I forget. Why do I lose sight of you? I know you, I trust you, But I get distracted and fail.

I let my flesh react without thinking or care, ignoring or hurting others even though I don’t want to.

Won’t you change me, oh Lord?

I can’t do it on my own. Remove the obstacles in my heart that cover your grace. When I arise from prayer let me not forget your love, and may my prayer continue.

When I engage with people may your mercy go forth, as I was saved by your mercy.

Let me stand firm on principles, on the rock that is Christ, whose Spirit gives me life.

Help me be humble, my Lord. May your hand never leave me.

Let my life glorify Christ.

In Jesus name,

  1. I love to have prayers all the time am a lady of 40 years and am having problems in my relationships, all the time there is disappointment here and there. This has made me unhappy within and my prayer life too has come down. I seriously needs God intervention. I want to be spiritually incline. Please help me.

  2. Hi my name is Teresa , need a miracle I bought a home that I couldn’t afford the payments alone boyfriend and ended our relationship so he is renting out my home for the reason that I can not afford it’s. We were both very mean to each other verbally n me physically I prayed n pray that god would help me with my anger but I didn’t get better . I’m not living here n there trying to sale my home . Please in need of a prayer n miracle please .

    Thank you !!!

    • Yes, Teresa, I will pray for you. Maybe YOU need to be the miracle. Make the right choices. Consult with wise, experienced people you trust. Take responsibility for your mistakes, and grow as a person. God wants you to be complete and solid. Ask him to help you in this way, and it will serve you for the rest of your life. God bless you!

  3. I would Love to get more prayer from you all it it gave me understand that I need more prayer to keep me lifted up .thanks

  4. Keep God present ?? Are you kidding? Jesus said, I am with you always. And promises to live in us by His Spirit. and us in HIM (John 14)… either He is lying or something is wrong with your thinking . And I know which I’m going for!

    • While we know that God has promised never to abandon us…God also knows that sometimes the things we experience in daily life can cause some of us to forget His promises (yes, even this one) or not feel His everlasting presence with us as strongly at times. He never leaves, that’s true. But I believe this is a prayer to moreso remind those of us struggling to feel the presence of the Lord that He is indeed there & will never leave. Also a good prayer for those of us who tend to experience some of the things expressed throughout the day. And really if you are prone to anxiety, it is a greater struggle to hold on to promises like this because Satan knows that this is a weakness & will try to plant seeds of doubt.
      So all in all, this is just a template of encouragement & prayer for anyone who can relate to it. If you can’t, that’s fine, but no need to say something is wrong with a person who does lol. God bless you!
