Evening Prayer

LOVE THROUGH ACTIONS 
1 John 3:16-18

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

I pray that, just as Christ laid down His life for you, you too will lay your life down for others. If anyone is in need and you have the ability to help, may you take pity and fill that need. May you think of the well-being of others before you think of your own, for that is the example shown to us by our Lord Jesus Christ when He sacrificed His own life. May your love go beyond mere words; may it be evident through your actions.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Merely Listening

For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight.

~ Romans 2:13 [NLT]

We can all sit in church and hear God’s word. However, just listening to listen doesn’t make a difference. It is the application into your life of the words you hear. Going to church is not about walking out and feeling good. It is about putting your knowledge into use. This is what makes us right in His eyes. How can you put into practice what God is teaching you lately? 

Evening Prayer

DESIRE SELF-CONTROL 
Proverbs 25:28; Galatians 5:19, 22

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

I pray that you will desire self-control and discipline, for a person without these is like a city whose walls are broken down. May God’s Spirit empower you to withstand temptation and abhor sin. May He give you the power to overcome any habit that is not pleasing to Him. I pray that you will remove every hint of immorality and impurity from your life. May He open your eyes to areas that you have not surrendered to His control. I pray that self-control, a fruit of the Spirit, be evident in your life.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Evening Prayer

YEARNING FOR WISDOM 
Proverbs 2:1-5; Proverbs 3:13-14, 16, 18

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

I pray that you will seek wisdom with all your heart, for it brings long life, riches and honor. I pray that you will treasure wisdom for it is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. May you turn your ear to wisdom, and call out to the Lord for insight and understanding. I pray that you will accept His words and store up His commands within you, so that you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. May you lay hold of wisdom and understanding, so you will be blessed. May you never grow weary of seeking God’s wisdom.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

New

The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.

~ Lamentations 3:22-23 [NLT]

God’s mercies are unending and he loves you love with a powerful never-ending kind of love. As you go through your day you can take comfort in knowing you are never alone. God promises to faithfully provide what we need for each new day. Pause at some point today to thank God for the way you have experienced his mercy. 

Evening Prayer

STEWARDSHIP OF ABILITIES 
Exodus 31:3; Deuteronomy 8:18; Matthew 25:15; Colossians 3:23

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

I pray that you will be a good steward of the skills and talents the Lord has given you, and that you will always put your abilities to good use. May you acknowledge that it is the Lord our God who gives you your abilities. I pray that you will use them faithfully, and that God will raise you up. I pray that as you do your best in small things or in big things, your work will reflect the glory and excellence of God. In anything you do, may you do it as if you do it unto the Lord, and He will honor and bless the work of your hands.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

His Money

Again, the Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of a man going on a long trip.  He called together his servants and entrusted his money to them while he was gone.

~ Matthew 25:14 [NLT]

Have you ever loaned out a tool, your car, or serving platter only to find the item broken, dented, or chipped when it was returned?  This is a reflection of the stewardship of the other person.  If you think about it, God has made us stewards too.  He blesses us with food, shelter, and even relationships.  One day we will have to account for the things God blessed us with.  Are you the person who will return an item in better condition than when you received it?

It Will Bring Quietness

And this righteousness will bring peace.  Yes, it will bring quietness and confidence forever.

~ Isaiah 32:17 [NLT]

There will be a day when the Lord will bring everlasting peace. Though that time hasn’t come, yet, we can still have temporary peace. Call on the Holy Spirit to bring quietness to your soul. Take time to meditate on an uplifting scripture. Get some fresh air to ease your body. Be at rest with the Lord. 

Evening Prayer

GUARDED BY PEACE 
Numbers 6:26; Proverbs 16:7; Philippians 4:7

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

I pray that you will be filled with the peace of God. May His peace be lodged deeply in your heart, allowing you to stand firm and unshaken in the midst of any trial. May the Holy Spirit restore peace in your family or in any broken relationship. May He calm your mind when you become anxious about your finances and provisions. I pray that your spirit will not be troubled by the things of this world. Keep your ways pleasing to the Lord, so that you will be surrounded by peace. No matter what you face, may the peace of God, that transcends all understanding, guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
