Image for sample prayer to repent of abortion

Abortion

There is nothing in creation, big or small, that God has not personally woven together. That includes every molecule and cell that forms our DNA. God knits each child in its womb, gives it a heavenly name, plans its life ahead, and cares intensely for it. The world, however, preaches...

Image for A prayer over an adopted child 

Adopted children

It is a blessing to adopt a child and give him or her a loving home. We may not always be aware of a child’s spiritual heritage from its biological family but as followers of Jesus Christ, we can pray and commit our adopted child to a fresh spiritual start....

Image for anxiety

Anxiety

We are all hit by anxiety at times. It’s that deep silent panic that we try to suppress with ‘positive thinking’ or address by looking for solutions. Other times, we simply divert our attention to other things so we don’t have to face our anxieties. (See Chinese versions: 體中文 > 一個向神坦白自己焦慮的禱告 |...

Image for a prayer over betrayal

Betrayal

Have you ever felt let down by people you trust and love? Perhaps you have been betrayed by family, friends or colleagues at work. Jesus was also betrayed by those He loved, cared for and served with. Praise God that He empathises with our personal pain. Let’s lift up our...

Image for A prayer over relationship breakup

Break up

We have all experienced the devastating pain of broken relationships, either through irreconcilable differences, migration, separation, or divorce. Research has shown that emotional pain can be as real as physical pain. How do we pray when our broken hearts are physically hurting, and it seems as if all hope has...

Image for breakthrough prayer

Breakthrough 

Our prayers can sometimes feel empty and powerless. Unknown to us could be unseen obstacles that turn God away from listening to our prayers. What could these be and how can we remove the blockages so that we can experience greater breakthroughs in our prayers? (See Chinese versions: 简体中文 > 突破)...

Image for a prayer for children

Children

Perhaps one of the most difficult things to do as parents is to not worry about our children. Will they grow up healthy? Are they receiving the right education? Who are their friends and how are they being influenced outside the home? Will we be able to support them and...

Image for a prayer over Christian conflict

Christian conflict

Conflicts amongst Christians can arise because of different personalities, ways, communication styles, views and spiritual maturity. God is the Creator of diversity and we are to celebrate it. Diversity, however, is also a potential source of conflict. The Bible tells us to maintain unity in the same spirit, the Spirit...

A prayer for the Church in Last Days

Church in Last Days

The apostle Paul warned that the end times will be difficult times for churches. The challenges that we face will not just be from outside the church but from within. Any corruption of any church anywhere is an assault on God’s good name, and we are called to be persistent in...

Church leadership

If you ever get the opportunity to pray for a church leader, it is a chance to bless not only the leader but also their family. People who minister to others often also sacrifice time with their loved ones, so let’s not forget to bless their families and homes too....

Image for a prayer for church staff

Church staff

If you have ever been discouraged in your Christian walk, consider how our church staff and volunteers must sometimes struggle too. What an impact it would have on hundreds, if not thousands of people, in their ministries. Let’s not neglect to pray for our pastors, elders, deacons, bible study leaders, speakers, church...

A prayer over church wounds

Church wounds

No one is perfect. Believers do make mistakes that hurt their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. To thrive in authentic godly church communities, we need draw healthy boundaries and be shrewd about whom we allow into our inner circles. Additionally, we must ensure that Satan does not use our wounds...

Image for cleansing prayer over home

Cleansing home

We may never know the full history of a house, flat, field or hotel room. Fortunately, that doesn’t matter when we have God by our side and we can cleanse our homes in the name of Jesus Christ! Here is a cleansing prayer over a property that we own or lease....

Image for a prayer for cleansing nightmares

Cleansing nightmares

Why do nightmares occur when the Bible says that God will give us peaceful sleep? Sweet sleep is the result of full obedience to God in our conscience. Conversely, nightmares may be the result of spiritual oppression. Some entry points include unconfessed sin, suppressed emotions, traumatic experiences, self-hatred, curses and...

Image for cleansing prayer over ourselves

Cleansing self

After ministering to or praying for others, people may sometimes feel that things aren’t back to “normal”. There may be unexplained body pains, emotional changes, temptations or odd events, which occurred almost too coincidentally afterwards. Just as we shower to clean ourselves after a day of work, it is good to also...

Image for a prayer for cleansing the workplace

Cleansing workplace

We are often unaware of the spiritual dimensions at our workplaces. Many places of business in Asia have been prayed over by chanting monks, feng shui masters, or mediums and are homes to lucky charms, superstitions, sprinkled blood, animal sacrifices, summoning of “gods” or chasing away of bad luck, and...

Image for a prayer to break curses of idolatry

Curses of idolatry

Many of us have burnt joss-sticks in temples, made polite bows at graves or altars, prayed to dead “saints” or “Mother Mary”, kowtowed to a martial arts, guardian deity, worshipped the Hindu kundalini spirit through yoga etc. – without knowing these are things that offend God. We may have even brought...

Image for prayer over depression

Depression

Many great men in the Bible had at times, felt overwhelmed and hopeless. Even Jesus said his sorrow felt like death. God can truly sympathise with our sufferings. In the midst of our darkness, God promises to be with us. He will strengthen and protect us when we turn our entire...

Image for a prayer at Easter

Easter

Easter is a good time to reflect on what Jesus has done for us on the cross at Calvary. Let us turn our eyes to our loving Father and remember His great incredible sacrifice for us. Jesus is worthy of all worship forever. (See Chinese versions: 简体中文 > 复活节 | 繁體中文 > 復活節)...

End times

Are you saddened and disturbed by all that’s happening around the world these days? Jesus personally spoke about the signs of the end times and explained that such things were the “birth pangs” of the end of this world. Because He loves us, God has provided repeated warnings in both the...
