Prayer To Change Your Life

God our Father in Heaven, we stand before You in prayer, humble before Your great presence. We ask that You empower those who have the earnest desire to change their lives through the mighty Name of Your beloved son, Jesus.

Lord Jesus, You said that whenever two or three are gathered in Your Name, there You will be. We humbly ask for Your presence beside us.

We know that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective, yet we claim no righteousness of our own other than the righteousness of our Lord Jesus.

We pray for those who are seeking to change their lives. We know that nothing is impossible for You, Lord. No bad habit or sin is too great for You to overcome.

Lord, touch their hearts and let them know that they are forgiven of their sins. Release them from the condemnation of the enemy that they cannot change. By Your blood that washes away all sins and guilt, we declare and they agree that they are now free from their chains.

May they accept You as their Lord and Saviour. May the heavens rejoice as they come to You for salvation. You are the God of second chances and there’s always room for those who seek to better their lives.

Fill them with the knowledge that they are now a new creation in You. The old is gone and the new has come. Whether it’s a bad habit, an unpleasant attitude, a terrible addiction, or a sin that keeps coming back, all these fall down at the feet of our Lord Jesus.

Remind them that the Holy Spirit that dwells in them gives them the power to overcome anything. If they feel weak, we declare and they agree that they are strong. They are strong not because of their own power or will but because they find strength in You.

We declare and they agree that they can do all things through Christ, including changing their lives.

Lead them to the people and the church that can help them grow in faith. As iron sharpens iron, surround them with righteous friends, mentors, and counselors so that they, too, may grow strong in their journey to change.

Remind them that they are not alone in this journey. Speak to them in a mighty and powerful way through the Holy Spirit that dwells in them. Speak to them through the church that is near to their heart. Speak to them through friends and family who love them.

And when they are tempted by outside forces to return to their old ways, remind them always that You are faithful even when they are not. That You will not let them be tempted beyond what they can bear.

Remind them to place their hope in You because You will renew their strength. You will give them wings to soar like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

And remind them that the best is yet to come in their life. If they place their faith and hope in You, You will show them a fullness of life that is not possible apart from You. You will bless them with abundance and fruitfulness that they cannot even begin to imagine.

We declare, Lord and they agree that this is the beginning of their new life, a life dedicated to You. Let them set goals and make plans for their new life that is in accordance with Your will.

Reveal the steps that they need to take to begin this new life. Help them to redeem the time that they may think they have lost and lengthen the days of their lives so they enjoy their new lives with You more.

We declare and they agree that their new life begins now. We give glory to You, Lord, for making this possible. We thank you, and we praise Your Most Holy Name.

We pray all this in the mighty name of Jesus, and God’s people said, “Amen.”

Prayer For Change In The World

Mighty Father, we pray for change in the world. In the midst of strife, war, famine, natural calamities, or economic crisis, we pray that all the nations in the world will bow and kneel before the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

We pray, Lord that you will cause change throughout the world. Replace bad leaders with wise and righteous leaders. Overthrow corrupt governments with governments that seek to serve their people.

Let all the people of the world recognize that You created this one world, this Earth, for us to rule as good stewards. Make us care for our environment and not abuse the natural resources that you have so richly blessed us.

Remove greed in the hearts of corporate leaders and awaken them with a genuine concern for their employees, their customer, and the communities around them. May they place people ahead of profits even as You bless them to continue growing as they put their faith in You.

And may there be genuine love and peace between all peoples of different races. May they grow in love for each other as they grow to love You. We claim this through the loving name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Strengthen their faith Lord and open their eyes so that they may see the great things that You do for those who believe in You. And show them that even if they have faith as small as a mustard seed, they can move mountains not because of their own power but because of You.

We claim Your miracle for today, Lord. Surprise them in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
