Image for A prayer for our unbelieving spouse

Spouse (unbeliever)

Some of us became followers of Jesus Christ when committed in marriage to an unbeliever. While the apostle Paul stated that we are not meant to partner with unbelievers, he also stated that we should not seek to separate if we are already married to one. We can certainly seek...

Image for prayer to protect against Jezebel spiritual oppression at home

Jezebel oppression

Some families seem to be dominated by a matriarch or patriarch who tries to “rule” over their family through the use of human wisdom or emotional manipulation in order to persuade others to go along with their choices. The person can come across as attention-seeking, manipulative, controlling, judgmental, proud, or...

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 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 What stops answered...

Image for a prayer over mental disorders

Mental disorders

God is the God of all hope who gives us joy and peace. He is not a God of confusion, fear and other mental afflictions. To the exclusion of God, this world prescribes various forms of pain relief and prescription drugs for those suffering from mental conditions. While this can...

Image for A prayer to repent of medical treatments involving aborted babies

Medical treatments (vaccines)

Some medical procedures, including vaccines, transplants, in vitro fertilization (IVF), and stem cells involve the use of aborted foetuses and disposal of unborn baby embryos. We may even have been involved in such procedures in the past, whether in receiving such treatments, suggesting it to others, administering them to patients,...

Image for A prayer over relationship breakup

Breakup

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 sample prayer to repent of yoga

Yoga

It only takes one minute to search online to see that yoga is a Hindu spiritual discipline. Many Christians have fallen for marketing messages that say that yoga is good for flexibility and beauty, and unknowingly bowed before idolatrous teachings and offended their Creator. Praise God that He will forgive us for posturing...

Image for sample prayer over friend's suicide

Suicide

It can be incredibly upsetting when a friend takes his or her own life and commits suicide. We are often overcome by shock, grief and guilt, and wonder if there was something we could have done to help. At times, it also unsettles our views on life. Thankfully, with Jesus...

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 workplace idolatry 

Workplace idolatry 

With feng shui, new age and other idolatrous practices so rampant, it is almost impossible to work in a place that worships God only. Before Jesus left His disciples, He prayed that we would be protected from Satan while we are in this world. Let us be “wise as serpents...

Unbelief

The Bible shows that Jesus worked mighty miracles wherever He went – except in places where there was unbelief. Our prayers are made meaningless if we don’t believe that God has already answered them. Thank God that our faith only needs to be the size of a mustard seed in...

Image for a prayer of self-encouragement

Self-encouragement

We all need some encouragement. There will be days we face conflicts, misunderstandings, challenging conversations, impossible deadlines or struggle with finances. Whatever the case is, we can thankfully go to God’s promises and declare them over ourselves. Many of the psalms that King David wrote were prayers of encouragement to...

Image for prayer over in laws

In-laws

In marriage, we are not only united with our spouse, but also our in-laws. The Bible shows us that our relationship with God comes first, followed by our marriage and then our extended family – not the other way around. There may be times when we will have to honour God above...

Image for a prayer to praise God

Praise God

Anyone who has humbly drawn close to God has nothing but awe, gratitude and praise for the Almighty. He is so magnificent, powerful and holy yet so gentle, patient and kind. His love is perfect and all His ways are good. He is worthy of all praise!   Psalm 145:3...

Forgiving others

Offences happen when people sin against each other and against God. There is no sinless person on this earth and there is no one in this world who has not been offended. We all have someone in our lives we need to forgive. Forgiving is hard, as we struggle with our...

Image for a prayer over persecution

Persecution

If we are to truly love others as Jesus asked us to, we must respond to persecution and mockery with grace and humility – and turn the other cheek. God calls us to love our enemies, do good to those who hate us, bless those who curse us and pray for...

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...

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 and rituals. Perhaps these occur so often around us that...

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...
