Yes ... It's A Gift Just for You
We hope it will change your life!
Here's how it works: You begin by reading
the following [yellow highlight] as
a prayer that you pray to God right now from where you are. It will only take a
few minutes as you can see.
Prayer a bit foreign to you? Then consider
Simple Bible Study about how to become a part
of God's kingdom later before you pray below or after reading now. Finding and receiving a relationship
with God our creator is just about the most beneficial thing we can ever do.
Since 1972 I'm living proof of it.
If you have sincere doubts about doctrines like the
claims of Jesus Christ, please read this excellent tract written by my pastor a
number of years ago:
THE MOST ASTOUNDING CLAIMS EVER MADE BY A HUMAN BEING

Part I. Prayer Text Outline >Prayer for Today
This is the scriptural text copy after which the prayer follows. The scripture
is given to remind you it has order and content strictly from the Bible. Say the
words thinking about their meaning even if it seems odd or weird to you. This is
only because you may not be used to praying in any regular manner. God knows
In this manner, therefore, pray: Intro. Our Father in heaven, 1A.
hallowed be Your name. 2A. Your kingdom come. 3A. Your will be done on earth as
it is in heaven. 4A. Give us this day our daily bread. 5A. And forgive us our
debts, as we forgive our debtors. 6A. and do not lead us into temptation, but
deliver us from the evil one. Conclusion. For Yours is the kingdom and
the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Introduction to the prayer: >Dear God, You are mine through faith in
Jesus my Savior. You are my Father and I am Your son. You are in heaven and I on
earth. I humbly come to seek You.
1A. Hallowed be Your Name May You be set apart in my life today for 1B.
who You are and 2B. what You are doing and have done in my life. I acknowledge
Your attributes and I am thankful for the joy of knowing You, and Your receiving
2A. Your kingdom come May Your rule and reign come to pass 1B. in the
lives of those who do not know You, and in my life: as I 2B. pray for more
laborers to reach them, as I 3B. seek to do my own business and occupy till You
come, and as I 4B. eagerly anticipate Your glorious coming.
3A. Your will be done on earth . . . I pray that I would honestly yield
to Your authority, and thus 1B. walk in submission to Your will by being
sensitive, patient and enduring Your will as I know it today, seeking an
attitude of meekness about Your will, praying for the determination to do it and
finally acting in order to perform Your will for my life. I pray that 2B. each
decision I make: those about 1C. My Mate and Family, 2C. My Church and School,
3C. My Ministry and Spiritual Gift, 4C. My House I dwell in, 5C. My Work and
Vocation would all be made with Your will in mind. Help me see them as though I
were looking from heaven.
4A. Give us this day our daily bread... I now ask that You might supply
the needs I have for today. But first, I know, there are some 1B. key needs for
successfully living my life today: 1C. [I pray] For Spirit-control of my mind, 2C. For
Death to my Sinful nature, 3C. For Balance in the Redemption of My Time, and 4C.
For Meditation on the Issues of Life I ought to be focusing on today. I pray for
2B. the Elements of Life: Please give me 1C. Spiritual purity, 2C. Physical
self-control, 3C. The right Mental/ Emotional thoughts, 4C. Your favor in the
Social time I spend with and for others, and 5C. Financial stewardship, that I
would be faithful in those trusts Youve given to me.
5A. Forgive us our debts . . . And as I have kept short sin debts by
immediate confession of sin, I reexamine my own heart for 1B. Wrong Attitudes.
Lord help me 1C. To Obtain spiritual goals You expect of me, 2C. To weep over
sin You reveal to me, 3C. To yield when I am shown sin, 4C. To desire to be
right in thoughts and actions, 5C. To show mercy as You have shown it to me, 6C.
To have an undefiled conscience, 7C. To love and respect others as You do, and
8C. To rejoice when I am hurt or suffering for some right thing I have done. I
now 2B. confess the sin(s) You have revealed to me by 1C. agreeing with You that it was a sin, 2C. turning from it in
attitude and action hereafter, and 3C. believing that You have removed this sin from me it should no longer bring guilt
to I am free now. I am so thankful that You have: 4C. forgiven me in that my
relationship to You has been restored. 5C. You have cleansed me in that You have
made me useful in Your service once again, and 6C. You have blessed me in that I
have in truth forsaken this sin and I now have Your joy, peace and favor
restored to my life.
6A. And do not lead us into temptation . . . I know, O Lord, that I am prone to
yield to temptation and to fail in trials that come, so I pray that I might
resolve not to fail nor forsake You. I believe that You will give me 1B. the
necessary grace to be victorious throughout life.
But deliver us from the evil one. I know that 2B. I need deliverance from
evil in this world, and through armor which You have supplied, I now put each
piece on: 1C. the belt of Truth I am sure the Bible is real, it is
truth, 2C. the breastplate of Righteousness I live doing right always,
3C. the shoes of the Gospel I share with others my faith in Christ my
Savior, the Prince of Peace, 4C. the shield of Faith I act in such a way
that things I do prove I wholly trust in Your Word. 5C. the helmet of
Salvation I have unwavering assurance that I am saved, 6C. the sword of
the Word of God I take the Bible and consistently memorize passages that
help me fight all evil, and 7C. the uniting bond of Prayer I realize
that I need to depend on and thus be in a continuously prayerful spirit to use
this armor successfully to fight all evil.
For Yours is the kingdom, . . .
And I now confess You as the eternal
Owner of All. Thank You for hearing my personal prayer.
Now I pray for others. I will also take a verse, and a song to
meditate on this day.
If you sensed a special experience in saying these words
above, it is because you probably know Christ as Savior, and that God was listening, and touched by your words. The words are
from His heart as seen above.
Below... [on the Next page (this linked page is for
online users that immediately will take you into the study at any point you wish to enter it) of our print copy] contains a
1-Page outline, greatly condensed from the detailed
full text version of "A Prayer Notebook" from which the above prayer is made.
Praying takes thought-filled time and can become rushed and abbreviated in the
stresses of life and living. But taking that time at the start of each day can
become one of the best habits of life, and can add such meaning to each year of
life as we live that nothing can become more meaningful as we live that gift He
has given to us! So by this gift we are encouraging you to begin a life of
prayer to God. Every day! Give it away as a birthday gift to someone special you know for their birthday here
anytime any year!
May we all learn and continue learning this life-altering
practice and see it eventually transform our lives into that "abundant" life He
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to
kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might
have it more abundantly.
A Blessed day to You, and may God Bless Your "YEARS" With His Peace
