A new prayer!! Psalm 17 for us. I think I am going to do them both (91 and 17) for a while.

Hear me, LORD, my plea is just;
listen to my cry.
Hear my prayer—
it does not rise from deceitful lips.
Let my vindication come from you;
may your eyes see what is right.

Though you probe my heart,
though you examine me at night and test me,
you will find that I have planned no evil;
my mouth has not transgressed.
Though people tried to bribe me,
I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
through what your lips have commanded. My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not stumbled.

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes.

Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
from the wicked who are out to destroy me, from my mortal enemies who surround me.

They close up their callous hearts,
and their mouths speak with arrogance. They have tracked me down, they now surround me, with eyes alert, to throw me to the ground.

They are like a lion hungry for prey, like a fierce lion crouching in cover.

Rise up, LORD, confront them, bring them down; with your sword rescue me from the wicked. By your hand save me from such people, LORD, from those of this world whose reward is in this life.
May what you have stored up for the wicked fill their bellies; may their children gorge themselves on it, and may there be leftovers for their little ones.

As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.

I just lift up to you the hearts of those gathered here and ask for your spirit to fall and for hope and faith, for love and blessing. I ask for an outpouring of your grace and mercy to stand and for resolution, understanding, clarity and lie. I ask that we might walk in the truth and live in the truth and not be hindered or deceived by lies. I ask for that hedge of protection around us and for your angels to guard all our paths. I ask for joy.

in the name of Jesus

St Patricks Breastplate - for the families here. Praying it now, I hope you will join me.


I bind unto myself today
The strong Name of the Trinity,
By invocation of the same,
The Three in One and One in Three.

I bind this day to me for ever.
By power of faith, Christ's incarnation;
His baptism in the Jordan river;
His death on Cross for my salvation;
His bursting from the spicèd tomb;
His riding up the heavenly way;
His coming at the day of doom;*
I bind unto myself today.

I bind unto myself the power
Of the great love of the cherubim;
The sweet 'well done' in judgment hour,
The service of the seraphim,
Confessors' faith, Apostles' word,
The Patriarchs' prayers, the Prophets' scrolls,
All good deeds done unto the Lord,
And purity of virgin souls.

I bind unto myself today
The virtues of the starlit heaven,
The glorious sun's life-giving ray,
The whiteness of the moon at even,
The flashing of the lightning free,
The whirling wind's tempestuous shocks,
The stable earth, the deep salt sea,
Around the old eternal rocks.

I bind unto myself today
The power of God to hold and lead,
His eye to watch, His might to stay,
His ear to hearken to my need.
The wisdom of my God to teach,
His hand to guide, His shield to ward,
The word of God to give me speech,
His heavenly host to be my guard.

Against the demon snares of sin,
The vice that gives temptation force,
The natural lusts that war within,
The hostile men that mar my course;
Or few or many, far or nigh,
In every place and in all hours,
Against their fierce hostility,
I bind to me these holy powers.

Against all Satan's spells and wiles,
Against false words of heresy,
Against the knowledge that defiles,
Against the heart's idolatry,
Against the wizard's evil craft,
Against the death wound and the burning,
The choking wave and the poisoned shaft,
Protect me, Christ, till Thy returning.

Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

I bind unto myself the Name,
The strong Name of the Trinity;
By invocation of the same.
The Three in One, and One in Three,
Of Whom all nature hath creation,
Eternal Father, Spirit, Word:
Praise to the Lord of my salvation,
Salvation is of Christ the Lord.

Prayers for all on SI.
Love you guys.

Here's a site of Christian/inspirational videos I found. Pretty much a cryfest for me. They're good tears.

GoodFaith posted 3/30/2012 14:03 PM

I originally posted this in General forum, but here is a good home.

I came accross this prayer about a year ago. I keep a copy in my wallet. I've often found it helpful to relieve anger, depression, and stress.
But to be honest there's been quite a few times it didn't help - but I found it helped the more I persevered.

Needless to say, I've got it completely memorized by now and have modified it for my situation.

Here's the generic version.

Father I choose to forgive in obedience to you and your word. I forgive (_______) for (_________) and ask you to make that forgiveness real and complete in me as you lift off the layers of hurt. Father give me the strength and willingness to persevere in choosing forgiveness until it is accomplished in me by your Holy power.

Father, I let go of all anger, resentment, bitterness and judgements in my heart. Wash me clean with the blood of Jesus.

Help me to look with compassion on the sinner. Renew a right spirit within me.

Bless those who hurt me. I release them to your care.

I forgive as Jesus forgives me.

In His glorious name, Amen.

jjct posted 3/30/2012 20:04 PM

Now that's a beautiful prayer!

I knew right away that I couldn't forgive so I asked him to do it for me.

Pretty cool. He did it. not me.
Praise HIM! not me.

Prayer Changes Things!

It is so true!

praying for you guys this morning.

Maia posted 4/8/2012 06:28 AM

Happy Easter. Lifting you all up this morning.

BoardPearl posted 4/8/2012 15:11 PM

Dear Lord,

I pray for the people suffering now and you know their heart. You know their plea for help and their pain.

Take away their worries and sorrows and let it give space in their lives. Take it and make it into something good. Something they can deal with in the long run. Something that brings peace to their hearts.

Make them aware of their courage and strength, Lord. So that they can walk through this step by step.

Protect them and stand by them.

I pray for those who are suffering. Who are asking for prayers. Make it known that you protect and want the best for their loved ones.

Father this morning I pray for truth. I pray for truth in the inmost heart in the hearts of the couples represented on this board, I pray that the spirit of truth would come and rest upon them. I pray that they would not deceive themselves or each other in any minute way but that they would see the truth, accept the truth, live in light of the truth and reject deception in all its forms. I ask for truth.

I also ask for grace father. I ask for grace poured out in abundance on the lives and hearts and marriages and children presented here, that it could be both received and extended. That it would be perceived. That it could be accepted and that it would do its transforming work. I ask for grace and truth.
and you know that means I'm asking you to show up. Because you are grace and truth.

and I know that you will. thank you Lord.


Maia posted 4/10/2012 07:25 AM

Help us to hear your voice and obey it, and to love this day.

“Sometimes, when my faith would falter
And no sun-light I can see;
I just lift mine eyes to Jesus
And I whisper, “Pilot me.”

Often, when my soul is weary
And the days seem, oh, so long.
I just look up to my Pilot
And I hear this blessed song;

Fear thou not, for I’ll be with thee
I will still thy pilot be;
Never mind the tossing billows,
Take my hand and trust in Me.”

When temptations’ round me gather
And I almost lost my way,
Somehow, in the raving tempest,
I can hear my Saviour say,

When I come to Jordan’s river
And its troubled waters see,
On the brink I’ll see my Saviour
And I know He’ll pilot me.

Fear thou not, for I’ll be with thee
I will still thy pilot be;
Never mind the tossing billows,
Take my hand trust in Me.”

Mrs. Emily D. Wilson

Lord, with this exhale I release to you my sins. I release my hurt and my fear and my doubt. With my next breath, fill me please with the Holy Spirit. Teach me to be strong and to forgive as you have commanded. Hold my hand and guide me through it until I can do it myself.

Help the other families here. Fill them as well that they may breathe easier and walk more freely in your love and forgiveness. Teach all of us how.

Through you all things are possible, I know that Lord, but help me live it.

Maia posted 4/16/2012 07:09 AM


I ask for your Life to shine forth today, Your Word and your Spirit, to pour out on each family here and grant mercy and peace, wisdom and hope. I ask this in Jesus name and for his glory,


Maia posted 4/17/2012 07:13 AM

Father in heaven,

I ask for a renewal and a pouring forth of your healing on each family represented here today.


Maia posted 4/24/2012 09:05 AM

Father, speak to the hearts of those here with the words that they need. Inspire conversations, with you and through you to those they love. Bring your healing.

Thanks, Maia, for bringing this thread back to page 1.
I carry this little poem in my wallet. It's printed on a laminated card 2" x 3.5".

The Cross in my Pocket
I carry a cross in my pocket
A simple reminder to me
Of the fact that I am a Christian
No matter where I may be.

This little cross is not magic
Nor is it a good luck charm.
It isn't meant to protect me.
From every physical harm.

It's not for identification
For all the world to see.
It's simply an understanding
Between my Savior and me.

When I put my hand in my pocket
To bring out a coin or key.
The cross is there to remind me
Of the price He paid for me.

It reminds me, too, to be thankful
For my blessings day by day
And strive to serve Him better
In all that I do and say.

It's also a daily reminder
Of the peace and comfort I share
With all who know my Master
And give themselves to His care.

So, I carry a cross in my pocket
Reminding no one but me
That Jesus Christ is Lord of my life Him be.
