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.”

Giving Praise to God
Father in Heaven, I come to You in Jesus’ Name to have You encourage me to be obedient to the instruction in Psalm 51:15. “O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise.”
Dealing With Thoughts of Revenge
Lord, I come in Jesus’ Name to thank you for Your promise to reprimand those who hurt me. “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord” Romans 12:19.
Control of Speech
Heavenly Father, I come to You in Jesus’ Name to ask You to always “set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips” Psalm 141:3.
