Prayer

The Benefits of Prayer

Prayer carries every burden to the Lord -- and leaves it there.

Prayer goes to the Lord...
with every need--to have it supplied;
with every enemy--to have it conquered;
with every corruption--to have it subdued;
with every trouble--to have it sanctified,
and with every promise--to have it fulfilled.

A Prayer

"Thy will be done"
A prayer
A repositioning
Suppositioning
Divine concern

"On earth"
Our dust
Ether's thickening
Gravely turned

"As it is"
As it was
As it always
Will be

"In heaven"
Our leaven
May we rise
With Thee.

Scriptural Prayers for Those with Eating Disorders

Do you sometimes struggle to know how to pray about your eating disorder recovery? Do words simply escape you sometimes? If so, it's okay. But please know that you can always start by just picturing yourself with Him and coming into His presence. Plus, you can always pray Scriptures. Maybe you would like to highlight some scriptural prayers in your Bible or even write down some of them so you can have them with you.

But I Can't Pray, I'm Horny!

"Horny". It’s a word we use as naturally as "hello". But something odd occurred while my friend Kevin and I were on vacation in Mexico City...

Prayer in Eating Disorder Recovery

Does it seem like the work of eating disorder recovery takes everything out of you? Are you tempted to just give up sometimes? Even when you're weary, please try to remember that you do not have to do this alone. Through prayer, divine strength is always available to you.

Just as we read in Isaiah 58:9, He is ready to answer your call. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer you; you will cry for help, and He will say: Here am I. Sometimes it might feel that He is far away, but in reality, He is close at hand. Prayer can help you enter His presence.

Prayer for Protection and Guidance

Psalm 16
Preserve me, O God:
for in thee do I put my trust.
O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD,
Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;

But to the saints that are in the earth,
and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god:
their drink offerings of blood will I not offer,
nor take up their names into my lips.

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup:
thou maintainest my lot.

Death... is such a hard thing

Prayer from Yeshua's Abigail

Abba, I have heard of so many deaths recently. So many loved ones lost. As Your children, we have hope that we will see our loved ones again. But sometimes we are unsure of where our loved ones really stand.

Abba, we know that You desire that none should perish. We know that You give every person ample chances to accept You. We also know that many who reject You are really rejecting a caricature of You. They have never really been shown who You really are.

We rely upon Your mercy, Abba, to show them the truth about You...even in those last moments of life. You see the hearts of people. You know if they are truly seeking You or not. Please reveal Yourself to those who are seeking.

Prayer for Those Who Have Suffered Loss or Need Healing

Abba, You are so amazing. Your love for us in nothing short of incredible. Thank You for touching us and for filling us with Your Spirit. Thank You for considering us worth saving. You could have allowed rebellious mankind to stay separated from You for eternity, but instead, You made a way for us to run into Your throne room. You made a way for us to be cleansed. I praise You and thank You for that.

Abba, You have children who are facing losses...losses of loved ones, losses of homes, losses of jobs. Please comfort them, Abba, and help them to remember that You care for all of Your creation...from the tiniest of creatures we are unable to even see to the crown of Your creation...mankind. Please bring reconciliation where it is needed. Bring forgiveness. Bring Your healing Shalom.
