With the announcements of the End Times being openly proclaimed daily in our news headlines (the Syrian war in the Middle East, the upcoming economic collapse, the scheduled international Middle East peace conference, etc) our need for effective prayer is much greater than ever before.
This prayer guide will assist you in attaining fellowship and intimacy with God. Use this daily to experience his love, his provision, and his plan for your life.
Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
(2 Corinthians 3:16-18)
We would like to share with you my personal journey with the Lord. This prayer guide is based upon four Christian principles:
- God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life.
- All of us sin and our sin has separated us from God.
- Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for our sin. Through him we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our life.
- We must individually accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
See The Good News for more details of the Lord’s salvation plan.
We believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, was God incarnated into human flesh by the Holy Spirit, was sinless, walked on this earth for 33 years, and died on a cross for our sins. We believe that he arose from the dead on the third day, and then ascended to sit in heaven at the right hand of God the Father, where he is today.
This guide is for Christians, and if you are not sure that you are, you can accept Christ into your life right now, by praying something like this:
“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior.”
My prayer goes something like this:
Crucifixion, Death, Burial and Resurrection
Lord, I give you my sin, my sickness & my burdens.
I give you my blood-stained hands. Cleanse me Jesus.
I receive from you Lord, your shed blood that cancels
out the stain of my sin, and you grant me forgiveness.
I receive from you the Holy Spirit who gives me the
Strength, healing and wisdom to stay on track with you.
I join with you and receive every blessing and promise
that was and is offered at the cross of suffering.
You are my Savior and Lord, my Rock and Fortress.
I join with you in your death, burial and resurrection.
Through baptism I am raised up with you out of
the water and delivered from my old self to a new me.
Ascension into Heaven
I ascend with you into the heavenlies as you are
seated at the right hand of Father God.
Praise and Worship

Lord, I bring my requests before your throne, and…
I ask you, Father, in Jesus’ name:
Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. (John 16:23-24)
I ask, believing that I have received the answer to my request:
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. (Mark 11:24)
I ask for things that please you:
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. (1 John 5:14-15)
I ask while obeying your commands:
And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
(1 John 3:22)
I ask that the Son may bring glory to the Father:
And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
I ask, while remaining in Jesus:
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. (John 15:7)
I ask, because you care for me:
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:6-7)
I ask, because you will meet all my needs:
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)
I ask, while confessing and repenting of my sin:
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear. (Psalm 66:18)
I ask, while forgiving all others who have sinned against me:
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. (Matthew 6:12)
I ask, while offering a sacrifice of praise:
Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.
God Loves You.
And He is the Father
you have been looking for all your life.
This is His love letter to you.
