Why a site about prayer?

The purpose of this site is to encourage us to each go deeper in our prayer life. One way that we do that is by praying together. Another way we do that is by praying individually yet collectively on the same prayer themes. Our hope is that as we share prayers and reflect on them and pray over them at the same time in our individual lives, the Holy Spirit will speak to each of us and allow us to encourage and edify one another in prayer.

Jude 9 Warfare Prayer

shared by Elizabeth Gunter

True Holy Creator God, in the name of the True Lord Jesus Christ, in accordance with Jude 9, to all cosmics of darkness I say "The Lord rebuke you." True Holy Creator God move back all cosmic beings under your jurisdiction and forbid them to harass or interfere with Your Kingdom business in our life and family.

Prevent any darkness, of whatever rank, from being allowed to send any level of spiritual evil against me (my spirit, soul, and body) or my family, labor and livelihood, ministry, or possessions, my life and future, or God-envisioned truth for me. I am trusting you, my Sovereign God and Supreme Judge, to make it safe for me and my family in the name of the True Lord Jesus Christ, my Savior.

To all forces of darkness I say again in accordance with Jude 9, "The Lord rebuke you." True Holy Creator God, True Lord Jesus, and True Holy Spirit, come and fill every place with the fullness of you. Amen.

Morning Prayer

from several prayer books (many of them Anglican)

As we rejoice in the gift of this new day,
so may the light of your presence, O God,
set our hearts on fire with love for you;
now and for ever. Amen.

Dear Abba

by Brennan Manning, from "Dear Abba: Morning and Evening Prayer", pg. 83

Dear Abba,

Of all of the things I do today I want the one constant to be that I stay close to You and Your Word; not because I have to, but because I want to. Help me this day, Lord, to pray without ceasing. Not with head bowed and eyes closed, but with all my senses alert to Your abiding presence in which I live and move and have my being. I want to love You more, Jesus, because You first loved me.
