Jabez called out to the God of Israel, “If only you would greatly bless me and expand my territory! May your hand be with me! Keep me from harm so I might not endure pain!” God answered his prayer. 1Ch 4:10
if my people, who belong to me, humble themselves, pray, seek to please me, and repudiate their sinful practices, then I will respond from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. 2Ch 7:14
I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation in your growing knowledge of him, - since the eyes of your heart have been enlightened - so that you may know what is the hope of his calling, what is the wealth of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the incomparable greatness of his power toward us who believe, as displayed in the exercise of his immense strength. This power he exercised in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms far above every rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And God put all things under Christʼs feet, and he gave him to the church as head over all things. Now the church is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. Eph 1:17-23
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on the earth is named. I pray that according to the wealth of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner person, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, so that, because you have been rooted and grounded in love, you may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and thus to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
Now to him who by the power that is working within us is able to do far beyond all that we ask or think, to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
So confess your sins to one another and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great effectiveness. Jam 5:16
LORD, grant me relief from my suffering
so that I may have some relief.
Rescue me from those who persecute me
so that I may be rescued.
Let us come back to you and we will do so,
for you are the LORD our God.
Be devoted to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving. Col 4:2
For this reason I tell you, whatever you pray and ask for, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mar 11:24
Stay awake and pray that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
So pray this way:
Our Father in heaven, may your name be honored,
may your kingdom come,
may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts, as we ourselves have forgiven our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
“For if you forgive others their sins, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, your Father will not forgive you your sins. Mat 6:9-15
LORD, lead me in your righteousness
because of those who wait to ambush me,
remove the obstacles in the way in which you are guiding me!
Look at me! Answer me, O LORD my God!
Revive me, or else I will die!
Then my enemy will say, “I have defeated him!”
Then my foes will rejoice because I am upended.
Protect me, O God, for I have taken shelter in you. Psa 16:1
I carefully obey your commands;
I do not deviate from them. Psa 17:5
Who can know all his errors?
Please do not punish me for sins I am unaware of.
Moreover, keep me from committing flagrant sins;
do not allow such sins to control me.
Then I will be blameless,
and innocent of blatant rebellion.
May my words and my thoughts
be acceptable in your sight,
O LORD, my sheltering rock and my redeemer.
O LORD, I come before you in prayer.
My God, I trust in you.
Please do not let me be humiliated;
do not let my enemies triumphantly rejoice over me!
Certainly none who rely on you will be humiliated.
Those who deal in treachery will be thwarted and humiliated.
Deliver me from my distress;
rescue me from my suffering!
See my pain and suffering!
Forgive all my sins! Psa 25:17-18
May integrity and godliness protect me,
for I rely on you! Psa 25:21
O LORD, fight those who fight with me!
Attack those who attack me!
Grab your small shield and large shield,
and rise up to help me!
Use your spear and lance against those who chase me!
Assure me with these words: “I am your deliverer!”
May those who seek my life be embarrassed and humiliated!
May those who plan to harm me be turned back and ashamed!
May they be like wind-driven chaff,
as the LORDʼs angel attacks them!
May their path be dark and slippery,
as the LORDʼs angel chases them!
Do not abandon me, O LORD!
My God, do not remain far away from me!
Hurry and help me, O Lord, my deliverer!
Have mercy on me, O God, because of your loyal love!
Because of your great compassion, wipe away my rebellious acts!
Wash away my wrongdoing!
Cleanse me of my sin!
For I am aware of my rebellious acts;
I am forever conscious of my sin.
Against you - you above all - I have sinned;
I have done what is evil in your sight.
Sprinkle me with water and I will be pure;
wash me and I will be whiter than snow.
Grant me the ultimate joy of being forgiven!
May the bones you crushed rejoice!
Hide your face from my sins!
Wipe away all my guilt!
Create for me a pure heart, O God!
Renew a resolute spirit within me!
Do not reject me!
Do not take your Holy Spirit away from me!
Let me again experience the joy of your deliverance!
Sustain me by giving me the desire to obey!
Then I will teach rebels your merciful ways,
and sinners will turn to you.
When I am afraid,
I trust in you.
In God - I boast in his promise -
in God I trust, I am not afraid.
What can mere men do to me?
O LORD, teach me how you want me to live!
Then I will obey your commands.
Make me wholeheartedly committed to you!
O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks with my whole heart!
I will honor your name continually!
For you will extend your great loyal love to me,
and will deliver my life from the depths of Sheol.
Remember your word to your servant,
for you have given me hope.
This is what comforts me in my trouble,
for your promise revives me.
O LORD, rescue me from wicked men!
Protect me from violent men,
who plan ways to harm me.
All day long they stir up conflict.
Their tongues wound like a serpent;
a viperʼs venom is behind their lips. (Selah)
Teach me to do what pleases you,
for you are my God.
May your kind presence
lead me into a level land.
O LORD, my heart is not proud,
nor do I have a haughty look.
I do not have great aspirations,
or concern myself with things that are beyond me.
Indeed I am composed and quiet,
like a young child carried by its mother;
I am content like the young child I carry.
