Prayer to open your heart

When you open your heart to someone, you take a risk. You could get hurt, right?

But if you keep your heart closed,  what happens? It gets cold and hard.

There is one place where you can open your heart without risk — in the presence of God. The Lord is pure health and goodness. He will never condemn anyone who seeks his mercy and love.

Jesus makes your heart strong and healthy. Go to him. Open your heart. Then have the courage to go out into the world to feel again and to love more.

Ezekiel 36:26

PRAYER TO OPEN YOUR HEART

O blessed Lord,

I carry my wounds deep inside. Can I hide them even from you? How long will I hurt? How lonely is my heart?

Help me, O Lord, to trust you. You gave me Jesus, your only Son. Innocent. Faithful. Pure. What further proof do I need? The love of God has no limit.

In the wounds of Christ I am safe and secure. Nothing in my heart, nothing in my past, no amount of shame or sorrow can extinguish the mercy of God. You show me tenderly your great care for me.

So let me open up my heart in that place of sacred trust & safety. In Jesus, there is no condemnation. By the blood of Christ I am free.

May your grace rush in, O Lord. Make me whole and healthy, to trust more, to love more. As I am loved beyond all measure.

In Jesus name I pray,

Amen.

Never underestimate the importance of prayer. Prayer puts you into direct contact and communion with God.

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.

Mark 1:35

PRAYER TO PRAY MORE

O merciful Lord,

I seek your presence. Here I am. Speak to me. Grant me your grace. Pour out your Spirit over me.

O loving Lord, give me the desire and will to pray more. Break down the barriers in my heart that tell me I don’t need you.

Instead, show me again how your love nourishes me. You bring me peace, and your Spirit gives me clarity. Guide and teach me, O Lord, to be faithful in my prayer life.

Place in my heart the deep desire to seek the presence of God. Let me be like Jesus, who needed his Father. Lead me to a secret place to pray. There you reveal your truths. Show me your mysteries.

Plant your love into my heart. In prayer, may I be transformed to be more like Christ, my Lord.

In Jesus name,

Amen.

Prayer for true freedom

We all want freedom, don’t we?

Yes, we must defend our earthly freedom and rights, but no person, government, or life situation can set your soul free.

Once you find true freedom, what will you do with it?

Freedom is fully expressed in actions and attitudes. If you keep your freedom all for yourself, you become a slave to selfishness. If you share it, many more will be set free.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

John 8:32

PRAYER FOR TRUE FREEDOM

O blessed Lord,

Every soul wants to be free, but lies and chains try to tie me down. What can I do?

Spirit of God, tell it to me again in the soft whisper of your Word. I am forgiven. I am loved. Sin & death defeated, I am free by the blood Christ.

Show me what it means then to be free. What shall I do? Show me Lord that in Christ I am free to give, serve and love more.

Jesus gives me courage & clarity. Christ brings me hope & peace. He restores the lost & lonely.

I will fight in the name of my Lord with justice, mercy & love. I fight freely, joyously. I proclaim your holy name.

The battle will be waged in prayer, the conquest of my soul complete. All victory leads me back to God.

I am free forever more!

In Jesus name,

Amen.

Prayer for true confidence

It’s harder than ever to be confident these days. We live in such an unpredictable world. Where can you find security and stability?

If you seek inner peace in people or circumstances, eventually you’ll be let down. No person or situation is perfect. And nobody is 100% self-sufficient.

When everything else is stripped away, and all recognizable structures begin to crumble… it’s time to return to the Lord. If you go to him, trusting with all your heart, you will discover a heavenly, supernatural confidence.

Immerse yourself in his Word and his truths. Be united with your church community. Go back to your Creator and regain what was lost. Find your strength again in Christ.

Prayer for true confidence

Audio message about this prayer from Vincent:

Has this site blessed you? Learn about our patron program.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:37-39

Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalm 139:23-24

PRAYER FOR TRUE CONFIDENCE

O merciful Lord,

You know me and see me. You can read my heart. Things are changing so fast. Nothing is stable or secure.

Help me, O Lord, to regain my trust & confidence. As the world trembles in fear, I am shown again & again, no lasting security comes from the promises of man.

Only One was willing to go to the cross for me. Only One shed his blood to save my soul & set me free. Only One was innocent and faithful to the end.

Against all the chaos & conflict I have only one thing: my faith in Christ Jesus.

His love drives out all fear. God’s Kingdom brings order to my mind, heart & soul.

Against all odds, Jesus lives. Against all odds, I am at home.

Nothing can separate me from the love of God.

In Jesus name,

Amen.
