Our opponent wants to harm us and ruin our relationship with God. We shouldn't allow that to happen. We must pray before starting our day in order to safeguard ourselves against our enemy. What is prayer, and how should we pray? Keep on reading...

Prayer empowers us to live a fullfilled and purposeful life. Create a pattern of prayer for your life.

A pattern is given to us to follow along with the mapped-out blueprint. 

As a seamstress, I know the importance of patterns.

In sewing and fashion design, a pattern is the template from which the parts of a garment are traced onto woven or knitted fabrics before being cut out and assembled.

Patterns are made to be followed, and patterned after, especially when making a specific product or working with a certain material. If we do not follow along, or we refuse to stay on track, we may cut too close, or not close enough, making more work for ourselves. Trust me, experience is the best lesson in life and I lived the moment.

I asked a little boy in my class, ” Do you know what prayer is?

He shook his head, “No”

I got down to his level, as we all should do for those who are small in the faith and are new believers in Christ.

We can pray to God about others

We can ask God for things we need and desire.

We can Praise him for how wonderful he is

We can worship him for who he is !

He looked at me and smiled, oh OK

Then I asked him, “So can you pray”?

He nodded joyfully, YES! 

Bless my parents. Thank you for my teachers.

And then I asked the rest of the class, can you pray, they all joyfully said YES. Just from observing and listening they learned how to pray. As long as I live I will teach prayer this way.

Prayer can be prayed in Six different ways

REQUEST When making a Request, asking God for things we need and desire.

WORSHIP When Worshiping God for who he is and what he has done for us

PRAISE Through Praise, by singing and reverencing God.

PETITION By Petitioning our needs and other people’s needs before our King

INTERCESSION Through Intercession by praying and speaking on behalf of others.

GIVING OF THANKS Through Giving of Thanks for the things God has blessed you.

Prayer can also be prayed through tears, when we have nothing else to say, through songs when we have a hard time expressing ourselves, or through the word of God, when we can’t find words to say.

Prayer is simply this, a conversation in a different forms of communication to the higher power than yourself.

When we pray, our creator listens!

Prayer to Pray

I glorify you this morning. I give you praise and honor this morning. You are exalted in my life. Honor and praise belongs to you. Your protection, your guidance, your direction is constant in my life. You provide for my daily needs, and desires, my cup runs over. Goodness and mercy follows me, everywhere I go. Thank you for your love, your kindness, towards us, humankind. I glorify your mighty works in my life.

Thank you for starting me on my day, the the gift of life, breath in my lungs, movement in my bones.

Thank you for my strength this morning. Thank you for the energy that you give, thank you for health, and my well-being. My mind is set on you, my heart is turned to you. I seek your will and purpose for my life. I am prosperous, focused, aligned, and ready to step into what you have called me to, this morning.

You surround me as with the shield of fire, no weapon formed against me, prospers in any kind of way. You protect me everywhere I go, you guard me in all of my ways. You shield me from all harm and danger.

Teach me, lead me, guide me! I am your pen, you are the author, instruct me in the way I should go. 


Lead me Lord, and I will follow, lead me Lord and I will go. You have called me, I have answered, lead me lord, I am here!

You never leave us, nor forsake us. You hold us with your righteous hand. You provide for our daily needs. We lack nothing. No good thing is withheld from us. We are the apple of your eye, hidden under the shadow of your wings. Resting safely in your embrace. We are strengthened, encouraged, empowered this morning to do great and mighty works. My soul knows this very well.

Forgive me my trespasses Lord. Lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from all evil. Overlook any offenses that I have caused, and any offenses done to me. I cover myself, my family. Everything that belongs to me, is under my authority! Power and dominion is in my hand, the blood of Jesus covers me, from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. Create in me a clean heart, renew a right spirit in me. Examine my heart Lord, see if there’s any wicked thing in me, remove it far from me. Finish your good work in me, complete what you started in me. Establish your good works, and plans for my life. Cleanse me of all unrighteousness. Remove impure thoughts from me, align me with your holy spirit.

All my thoughts belong to you my mind stays on you. Every agenda, plot, scheme that the enemy will have against me today, I nullify it’s works now. No evil shall befall me, no disaster come near me. Command your angels to guard me in all of my ways.

No weapon formed against me shall prosper in any kind of way. Every thought, that rises against me in judgment is silenced, and condemned in Jesus Name. Power and authority belongs to me. I am the righteousness of God.

All that I have, all that I am belongs to you. You are in charge of everything I am, and everything I do. I glorify your work Lord. You are making all things beautiful in your timing. Your thoughts are good for me, plans to prosper me, give me a hope and the future, give me an expected end.

Let your light shine on my ways! Establish your good works in my life, amen!
