These very short, Scripture-based prayers can be used throughout the day to help take you to your next more extended prayer time and assist you in being able to keep in an attitude of prayer. These prayers can also be useful in emergency situations because of the power that comes through praying God’s Word.
How to use these prayers: print them or save them on your phone and use them as reminders to talk to your Heavenly Father throughout the day.
Bring these short prayers in Jesus’ Name.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing.”
Lord, thank you for the promise in Psalm 119:105. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
In Time of Trouble
“Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come to you. Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my trouble…” Psalm 102:1-2a
Lord, teach me to be more like David in Acts 13:22. “… a man after My (God’s) own heart, who will do all My will.”
Following God’s Commandments
Lord, give me the wisdom to follow Joshua 22:5. “…walk in all His ways, to keep His commandments, to hold fast to Him, and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul.“
Connected to God
Heavenly Father, show me how to fully understand the truth in Psalm 16:2. “…”You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.” (NIV)
Rejoicing in the Lord
Lord, the words in Psalm 13:5 are the words I want to express to You as well. “But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.” (NIV)
Serving the Lord
Lord, direct me to have the words of Joshua 24:15 be true of me. “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Heavenly Father, thank you for the warning in Joshua 24:16. ‘”Far be it from us that we should forsake the LORD to serve other gods.”
Lord, thank for giving us the message in Psalm 19:1. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.”
Good Use of Time
Lord, show me how to use my time wisely. “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 (NIV)
Song in My Heart
Lord, thank you for giving me a song. “He has put a new song in my mouth- Praise to our God…” Psalm 40:3a
