Evening Prayer

NEVER GIVE FALSE TESTIMONY 
Exodus 20:16; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 2:15

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You.

I pray that you will have a lifestyle of honesty and truthfulness. May you be known for the integrity of your word and so correctly handle the Word of Truth. I pray that you will not lie nor give false testimony against anyone, for this is detestable to the Lord. May you never be ashamed as you consistently share the truth in love, as if God were speaking through you. I pray that He will sanctify you by His truth. May you boldly speak the truth in love, so that you may encourage others.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scattered

I will be like a shepherd looking for his scattered flock. I will find my sheep and rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on that dark and cloudy day.
~ Ezekiel 34:12

God considers each of His children to be a lost sheep. As one of his sheep, He will seek you out and find you to bring you back to His flock. Oh, how much He loves you to ensure that you do not get lost along the way. You are too important for Him to overlook, and you should never doubt that.

Evening Prayer

STAYING FAITHFUL 
Exodus 20:14; Matthew 5:27-28

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You.

I pray that you will remain pure and holy before God. May you guard your mind from impure thoughts that cause you to sin. May no hint of impurity or covetousness be found in you, and may you never allow lust to take root in your mind. Instead, I pray that you will direct every passion and devotion of your heart toward Christ, so that you may win every battle over sin. I pray for God to keep your mind and heart pure and faithful.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Upside Down

If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it. ~ Matthew 10:39 [NLT]

The emphasis here is not on losing your life and all of your possessions, but rather on turning your focus away from those possessions. We sometimes lose sight of the important things in life such as strengthening the bond with your parents or mending wounds with friends. Maybe it has been a long time since you shared a special moment with your brothers or sisters. We become so busy in life that our priorities can be flipped upside down. We must change our way of thinking and prioritize in a healthy and Godly way by putting God, our spouse and family first. 

Evening Prayer

ALL-CONQUERING LOVE 
Lamentations 3:19-26

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You.

I pray that you will experience the Lord’s immense love for you. I pray that the Lord’s love will surround you and keep you from being consumed in times of uncertainty, bitterness or affliction. May you be filled with joy, knowing that His compassions never fail – they are new every morning. May you rejoice, for great is our God’s faithfulness! May you place your hope in Him and in His infinite love, for His love conquers all afflictions.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Evening Prayer

OVERLOOK AN OFFENSE 
Proverbs 17:9; 19:11; Ephesians 4:26-27

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Tonight 

I pray that you will not take offenses to heart. May you excuse an offense and promote love instead of dwelling on the matter in a way that separates you from your friends. May you never allow grudges and bitterness to rule your mind and your senses. I pray that you will not let the sun go down on your anger so that the devil cannot take a foothold on your emotions or your judgment. I pray that you will have the ability to overlook offenses, which will be to your glory.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Selfish Ambition

If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying.
~ James 3:13-14 [NLT]

We all possess some degree of selfishness. The important thing is to acknowledge it and let others know of your intentions. People will be more understanding if you reveal it rather than hide it. If you feel strong enough to mirror God’s ways, change your direction by giving time and money to those less fortunate than yourself. If you don’t feel strong enough, ask God for the strength.
