Prayer For Spiritual Growth

Dear Jesus Christ, I pray for spiritual growth and help to become a better person. Thank you for this drive to be rooted in Christ and resting within his love. I know that He alone is the true and living reason I am on this Earth.

Lead me and those in my life towards spiritual growth so that we might understand your teachings and do good deeds in your name.

I submit to your will as you remove anything in me that is not of Christ so that I may spiritually mature in grace on my Christian path. I ask this through the power of the Holy Spirit.


Prayer For Spiritual Growth With Scriptures

Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God. Hebrews 6:1

God, the words of Your teachings tell us to look beyond the simple writing and see the deeper meanings. God, help me to grow spiritually and to understand your teachings fully.

Please fill my heart with your love and help me to see where I’m going wrong in life. Please give me the strength to change myself for the better, and guide me on a path that leads to you.


Paul’s Prayer For Spiritual Growth

Paul’s prayer for spiritual growth in scripture shows us one of the many examples of Paul being committed to God, teaching and praying. He always showed a strong commitment to his preaching and many of his prayers called for spiritual growth. This scripture is, perhaps, one of the best known.

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him.

Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever!

Prayer For Spiritual Growth And Healing

Father in Heaven, I love You with all my heart, and I feel so far away from you sometimes. Please help me Lord to draw nearer to you. Help me to better understand spiritual things and know how to apply them in my life.

Prayer For Spiritual Growth And Strength

God, my Father and my creator,

Even the most humble servants can accomplish great things for You, my Lord and I ask for the spiritual strength to be able to achieve in your name. Manifest your will through me, Lord, I am here as one of your own.

Provide spiritual strength that isn’t demonstrated by physical prowess but rather through faith. In the name of Jesus, I pray.


Prayer For Growth In Faith

Jesus Christ my Lord, my God, my all.

Thou hast promised to hear him that asks in thy Son’s Name. To me, who this day cannot call myself a visible follower of thy blessed Son Jesus Christ, who is the way and truth and life, I come to thee in his Name; and if I am not yet a living member of his Body which is the Church, I believe in him and desire to be so.

I have sinned against thy infinite goodness, for I have not loved thee with all my heart, nor given myself up wholly to thy service. In faith I come before thee, unworthy as I am; yea rather, clothed in thy promises which none can make void or empty of.

Help me grow my faith and be closer to you because of it.


Prayer For Spiritual Hunger

Gracious God, I come to you with the intention of speaking words on behalf of myself and others.

I pray for spiritual hunger, Lord, because there are many people who are spiritually hungry. Some want to know more about You or desire a closer relationship with You. Others have experienced Your presence in their lives yet long for the comfort of that experience again. Still, more have never experienced You or even heard of You, yet they too are spiritually hungry.

Bless us dear Lord with the faith to grow closer to You and help guide us when we stumble.


Prayer For Growth In Self Knowledge

Jesus Christ my Lord, help me to grow in self-knowledge and love. May I overcome my ego and its illusions of separateness, and awaken to the truth that we are one in essence that we all come from God and return to Him.

That we exist eternally as the mind or consciousness of God, that we are expressions of divine Love.

May I maintain a constant awareness that every thought, word and deed returns to us as grace, strengthening our inner unity and clarifying our understanding.

May my life become an expression of your reality and my growth be continuous and everlasting.


Prayer For Spiritual Maturity

Dear Lord God,

I pray for spiritual maturity and progress. Hold me close when I falter. I declare here that my quest to be your follower shall progress and none by Your own will shall change my path.

Lord, Jesus, forgive me for the work I still need to do. And forgive me my trespasses, as you have taught me to forgive the trespasses of others. Thank you for Your blood and the gift you granted us all everlasting.
