Prayer For A Partner

Dear God,

I am so angry that I’m about to explode! But that would only make the situation worse. I know how destructive anger is, and I don’t want to say or do anything that I will later regret or that would displease You.

On the other hand, suppressing these powerful emotions would be harmful to me mentally and physically, and that would not please You either. Father, give me wisdom on how to deal with this situation in a healthy, godly manner that will honor You and set a good example for my children.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

When you are angry, do not sin. And do not go on being

angry all day. Do not give the devil a way to defeat you.

EPHESIANS 4:26–27 ICB

Human anger does not achieve God’s righteous purpose.

JAMES 1:20 GNT

He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty,

And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.

PROVERBS 16:32 NKJV

Hot tempers start fights;

a calm, cool spirit keeps the peace.

PROVERBS 15:18 MSG

A fool gives full vent to anger,

but the wise quietly holds it back.

PROVERBS 29:11 NRSV

Don’t ever forget that it is best to listen much, speak little,

and not become angry.

JAMES 1:19 TLB

When angry, count ten before you speak;

if very angry, an hundred.

THOMAS JEFFERSON

ANGER IN ITSELF IS NOT A BAD THING. In fact, feeling angry can be healthy. It can alert you that a boundary has been violated and lets you know that a situation needs to be dealt with.

As a parent, you will have plenty of opportunities to get peeved at your children. And that’s okay. But it’s not okay to take that anger out on them. That is when anger turns to sin.

The next time you feel that emotion bubbling up within you, try this. First, count to ten or whatever you need to do to get a grip on yourself. Leave the room if you have to. Next, when you are reasonably calm, pray and ask the Lord how to handle the situation.

Since God has an abundance of wisdom and deals with unruly children as a way of life, He certainly can help. Let God speak His peace into your own heart before you confront your children. Finally, talk to them. In a calm manner, tell them you feel anger toward them and tell them why.

Then tell them what you expect from them and end on a positive note such as a prayer or a hug.

This may sound simplistic, but God’s Word always works. He says when there is a conflict between you and another person, you should go to them and resolve it. When you do this, you are teaching your children by example how to deal with anger in their own lives. Will you give it a try?

Is there something between you and one of your children right now that needs to be dealt with? How will you resolve it?

Anxiety

Heavenly Father,

Anxiety is weighing heavily on me, and my insides are tied up in knots. Even my children sense something is wrong.

I know I shouldn’t worry, because You stand ready to take my burdens. And You can do something about them! So right now, I choose to cast my cares on You, and I ask You to help me not to take them back. I receive Your peace to replace anxiety and focus my thoughts on You and Your promises. Thank You for taking care of this situation for me. You are faithful.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

May God bless you richly and grant you increasing

freedom from all anxiety and fear.

1 PETER 1:2 TLB

I am filled with trouble and anxiety, but your commandments bring me joy.

PSALM 119:143 GNT

Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down,

But a good word makes it glad.

PROVERBS 12:25 NASB

When anxiety was great within me,

your consolation brought joy to my soul.

PSALM 94:19 NIV

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything,

by prayer and petition,

with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the

peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will

guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

PHILIPPIANS 4:6–7 NIV

Anxiety is the rust of life, destroying its brightness and weakening its power. A child and abiding trust in Providence is its best preventive and remedy.

TRYON EDWARDS

AS A MOM, YOU’RE EXPECTED TO HAVE EVERYTHING TOGETHER—to be the one in charge. Yet when you’re facing difficult situations in your own life, being in charge is the last thing you feel doing.

You’d much rather be taken care of than be the caretaker. You don’t want to take your frustrations out on your children or transfer your anxiety to them, yet it’s difficult to go about the day pretending that nothing is wrong.

So how do you handle these trying times?

First Peter 5:7 NIV gives this advice: Cast all your anxiety on [the Lord] because he cares for you. No matter how harried life may seem at the time, don’t neglect your prayer time with God.

Take a few moments of alone time with Him, pouring out your heart to Him. Allow Him to comfort you and sooth your hurting heart.

Not only will you feel better and have the strength needed to go about the day, but your children will feel the effects of your prayer time as well.

If your children can still detect your anxiety, be honest with them. They may not need to know all the details, but share with them what you can.

Let them know that they are not to blame for your worry and allow them to be a comfort to you. If you can, use this time as an opportunity to share God’s promises with your children.

Read Psalm 55:22 NIV together: Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.

List some cares in your life that you need to surrender to God.

Depression

Father,

I’m more than just blue—I’m suffering from a full-blown case of depression, and I can’t seem to shake it. Everything looks gray, and I feel numb inside. Will I ever be joyful again?

Hold me in Your arms, Father, and comfort me. Reassure me of Your love and concern. I give You the seemingly hopeless situations and ask You to work Your miracles. How wonderful it is to know that I am not alone. You are always with me—never judging, but always full of hope and encouragement. I put my trust in You.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

I am standing here depressed and gloomy, but I will meditate upon your kindness to this lovely land….

O my soul, don’t be discouraged. Don’t be upset.

Expect God to act! For I know that I shall again have

plenty of reason to praise him for all that he will do.

He is my help! He is my God!

PSALM 42:6, 11 TLB

He will not break the bruised reed, nor quench the dimly

burning flame. He will encourage the fainthearted, those

tempted to despair.

ISAIAH 42:3 TLB

«The eternal God is your refuge,

and underneath are the everlasting arms.»

DEUTERONOMY 33:27 NIV

«I called to the LORD in my distress,

and he answered me.

From the depths of my [watery] grave I cried for help,

and you heard my cry.»

JONAH 2:2 GWT

Jesus understands no one else. He will lead you through

the darkness and into the light.

JOSEPH GRIMALDI IS REMEMBERED AS ONE OF HISTORY’S GREATEST CLOWNS. He was exclusively a theatrical clown, and he is considered the Father of Modern Clowning because he is the entertainer who elevated the white-faced clown to a starring role. He played for the King of England, among others, and he seemed to make the whole world laugh.

So great was Joseph Grimaldi’s reputation that a doctor once gave a patient who was suffering from depression this simple prescription: You must go to the music hall and see Grimaldi.

The patient bowed and said, I’m sorry, doctor, but with me that will not work. You see, I am Grimaldi.

Depression is a common problem for most people—even moms! Life can seem to be filled with problems that can become overwhelming at times.

But God’s Word has the answer for depression: The joy of the LORD is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10 NIV).

The joy of the Lord is not a temporary amusement, such as the performance of a white-faced clown, but it is a lasting, abiding sense that everything will be okay, because God is still in charge.

Whatever problems are weighing you down, whatever feelings of hopelessness or helplessness you may be experiencing, you can still begin to experience the joy of the Lord.

Tell God how you are feeling, and ask Him to bring His peace and comfort back into your life.

In response, He will bless you—and your children—with His presence, which is filled with joy: You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore (Psalm 16:11 NKJV).

How can you experience more of God’s joy?

Prayer partners for the pastor

Prayer For A Partner

I can hardly believe the dramatic change that has come to my ministry! It all began a year ago when I learned the concept of personal prayer partnership.

For years I had longed to have men of the church pray with me. I could count on two fingers the men who had taken time to support me as their pastor in prayer. One elder stopped by my office now and then to pray with me. Another shared prayer with me after a difficult business meeting. These were meaningful experiences, but not much to show for more than 10 years of ministry.

I took an informal survey of my peers and discovered that I wasn't the only pastor around who lacked prayer fellowship with local church leaders.

Although all of them expressed their need for it, few had experienced more than sporadic instances of prayer sup port. One pastor told me that he longed for elders to pray with him just before he preached.

He had hinted to them of his desire that they pray for the Holy Spirit's power to anoint his speaking, but they didn't seem to understand his need.

Biblical base of prayer support

The concept of prayer support for spiritual leadership is rooted in Scripture. In the book of Exodus we find Moses going from a desperate situation (needing water for his people) to a miracle solution (water from the rock).

Then suddenly he found himself faced with another crisis—Amalekites were attacking the camp. He commissioned Joshua to lead the men of Israel into battle while he went to the top of a hill and held up his hands to the Lord.

The results were remarkable:

«As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but when ever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning» (Ex. 17:11).1

Aaron and Hur caught on to what was happening. They surrounded Moses and held his hands high so Joshua would prevail against the enemy.

«When Moses' hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword» (verses 12, 13).

By now you have realized that Aaron and Hur were the first official prayer partners of a spiritual leader. Their assistance enabled Moses to continue in prayer so Joshua could win the battle.

Compelling symbolism

Let me suggest some applications for us today. I see Moses representing our leadership, whether we serve as a pastor, teacher, administrator, evangelist, or local church leader. Moses, we must be in prayer to the Father. Too often in a crisis we race to solve the situation ourselves. But Moses didn't rush off to fight the enemy. He hastened into prayer.

Now, who does the warrior Joshua symbolize? In Hebrew the name means «Yahweh is salvation,» and in Greek Joshua is translated «Jesus.» In reality, then, the one who fights our battles is Jesus! He alone can conquer the enemy. As long as we keep praying, Jesus will fight our battles. If we cease praying, the battle isn't won.

Now for the third symbol, the sup port of Aaron and Hur. Despite their shortcomings, Moses needed their prayer partnership. Without it the Israelites would have suffered loss. Spiritual leaders today wise need prayer support people.

Ellen White observed: «Happy the minister who has a faithful Aaron and Hur to strengthen his hands when they become weary and to hold them up by faith and prayer.

Such a support is a powerful aid to the servant of Christ in his work and will often make the cause of truth to triumph gloriously.» 2

«As Aaron and Hur supported the hands of Moses, they showed the people their duty to sustain him in his arduous work while he should receive the word from God to speak to them.

And the act of Moses also was significant, showing that God held their destiny in His hands; while they made Him their trust, He would fight for them and subdue their enemies; but when they should let go their hold upon Him, and trust in their own power, they would be even weaker than those who had not the knowledge of God, and their foes would prevail against them.

«As the Hebrews triumphed when Moses was reaching his hands toward heaven and interceding in their behalf, so the Israel of God prevail when they by faith take hold upon the strength of their mighty Helper.» 3

Getting started

Upon understanding this concept of personal prayer partnership, I decided to implement it. My wife and I each sought partners from the congregation who were willing to make a one-year commitment to pray for us, the church, and its projects. Realizing that prayer brings people close together, we kept men and women separate—I chose six men, she found seven women.

We launched the program by having a retreat for the men and another for the women. In our separate groups, my wife and I shared the importance of prayer partnership and confided some of our needs and weaknesses. We were vulnerable with our partners, and they in turn were vulnerable with us and one an other.

The prayer partner retreat was a high point in my ministry. Never before had men prayed over me and my needs that. A strong bond formed at the retreat that continued throughout the year.

Each of the partners was assigned one day of the week to uphold my wife and me in prayer. For Sabbath the men took turns meeting with me at 7:00 a.m.

in the church to pray over the children's departments, the adult Sabbath school classes, and the worship service. The men also prayed for me and my message.

Their powerful intercession enabled me to start each Sabbath with the right «Spirit.»

Through the year the prayer partners met once a quarter for breakfast. We talked about how the program was going and discussed specific prayer requests from church members and from one another. Along with their responsibility to pray for me, each selected a personal partner from among the group. Each pair got together during the week to pray.

With all this praying going on, I felt I could handle any challenge during the upcoming year! And I did.

Satanic attacks

Let me share a warning. Whenever we unite in God's strength, Satan tries to destroy us. During the time I was developing prayer partners, I had to weather strong criticism from offshoot factions within the church. It was a rough time— but I had my partners praying for me.

Challenges that might have destroyed me earlier now seemed easy to deal with. This past year turned out to be the most successful year for evangelism we have ever had. Our church prospered financially as well. Great things are happening with the continual prayer support of our partners.

Power through prayer doesn't come without a price. Satan worked hard to discourage our prayer partners this past year. One had marriage problems. Another's mother had major cancer surgery and his father became paralyzed.

Another partner had a bicycle accident that required surgery; as a result he had to quit college, and lost his financial support. Then his wife lost her job; after that they lost their car.

Another partner suffered a divorce and the hurt of having his children removed from him to an other state.

The list goes on. But as long as the prayer partners continued to meet regularly, through prayer they found strength to cope with every situation.

Power and peace for you too

After a year of having prayer partners, I almost forgot what it was before I had them; how I used to hunger for men to pray with me. Now my partners stop by the church office when ever they can to pray with me. I can testify to the power and peace this brings to a pastor.

If you are tired of standing alone, you too can have a prayer partner ministry in your church. Our congregation has prepared materials to help you get started (see the box elsewhere on this page).

I am determined that my ministry will always have the support of a prayer partner program. Now I never have to face anything alone again.

Israel Mandate

Prayer For A Partner

The International House of Prayer (IHOPKC) is committed to seeing the nation of Israel walking in their full destiny at the end of the age. Our primary role is to pray for and partner with Messianic Jews living in Israel, and to pray for God’s purposes in the nation of Israel.

The operation and visitation of the Spirit in Israel is a vital part of releasing the great end-time harvest among the nations (Ezek. 36:23–36).

However, this full release of the Spirit will only come as a result of a body of believers who are committed to a life of night-and-day prayer and fasting.

Jesus Himself prophesied that He would raise up a last-day prayer movement that would cry out for the Jewish people (Isa. 56:6–7; 62:6–7). We take this mandate seriously.

Our mission is to mobilize an international prayer movement that would pray 24/7 for the nation of Israel to receive their Jewish Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus).

Jesus promised the nation of Israel an unusual visitation of His presence at the end of the age, when the Jewish leaders will recognize Him as their true Messiah and deliverer (Mt. 23:39).

We invite you to get involved and join us in praying for the nation of Israel. Join us on the free prayer room webstream, or in the Global Prayer Room here in Kansas City during our prayer meetings that focus on Israel.

Scriptures to Use in Prayer for Israel

“For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns.” (Isa. 62:1)

Jerusalem’s End-Time Significance

Jesus “bound” Himself by His own prophecy, saying He would only come back and rule in Jerusalem when Israel’s leaders ask Him to reign as King over them.

“O Jerusalem! Jerusalem . . . How often have I wanted to gather your children together . . . but you were not willing . . . for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.’” (Mt. 23:37, 39)

The Armageddon campaign is a battle for Jerusalem

Military forces of all nations will gather in one place and lay siege against Jerusalem.

“And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all the peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut to pieces, though all the nations of the earth are gathered against it.” (Zech. 12:3)

“For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem.” (Zech. 14:2)

Jesus will bring military breakthrough.

“In that day the Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; the one who is feeble among them in that day shall be David, and the house of David shall be God, the Angel of the Lord before them. It shall be in that day that I shall seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” (Zech. 12:8–9)

“Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle.” (Zech. 14:3)

At the same time, Jesus will bring spiritual breakthrough.

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn” (Zech. 12:9-10)

“And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, among the remnant whom the Lord calls.” (Joel 2:32)

Jesus will rule over all nations from His throne of glory in Jerusalem.

“For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place. This is My resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I have desired it.” (Ps. 132:13–14)

Powerful Prayers for Marriage and Restoration [Quotes + Verses]

Prayer For A Partner

Do you feel your relationship is in trouble? Perhaps your better half has left, your marriage is on the rocks, or you simply feel place with the person you are with. You value the relationship that you have with your husband or wife, and you honor and respect the vows that you took in front of God and witnesses.

Despite the best of intentions, there are times when even the most perfect relationship has problems and issues. It is common for a member of the relationship to run-away from those problems, or refuse to face them by trying to leave the relationship and the home you’ve made together.

Do not despair, there is hope, you just have to find faith and encouragement from our gracious Lord above.

Prayer can repair the most damaged marriage. The power of God can bring two people, who are intended to be together, back into a love filled marriage. Your union will know the love from the blessings of God if you keep your eyes on Him in all things. Through prayer, anything is possible.

God is all-powerful and all-knowing, He can mend any bridges that may have been burned by conflict, clear away any confusion, and give you the power to forgive when needed most. If your relationship is in need of a blessing and you have nowhere to turn, always consider the power of prayer.

God is always there to listen, and his followers on earth are always ready to assist in having your prayer requests heard.

6 Prayers For Finding A Godly Spouse

Prayer For A Partner

Being single can be hard, especially around Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  It can be lonely watching other men and women embracing one another, holding hands and flirting.

  It is a natural feeling to want those kinds of things, and when we are single it can get lonely.  You can go to many different people and get many suggestions on how to find a spouse, but the only opinion that matters is God’s.

  This is why it is crucial that we take marriage to God in prayer before and during our time searching for a mate.

Here are 6 prayers that you can pray when you are single and searching for that special someone!

It is crucial that we take marriage to God in prayer before and during our time searching for a mate.

I Am Lonely (For The Men)

Father,

I am lonely. I feel everyone I know has found a wife and I desperately long to have one of my own.  Lord, You declared in Genesis that it is not good for man to be alone (Genesis 2:18).  That is why you made a helper for Adam.

  Father, I long for the affection of a spouse.  I long for intimacy, Lord.  I long for an intimacy that will allow me to love my wife Christ loves His church, that I may give of myself to her so she will have her needs met.

  Father, I long for that sexual, physical, emotional, and intellectual connection that can be had with a woman.  I pray that You lead me to a woman that will love me for me, Father.  Lead me to a woman who fears You, Lord.

  Lead me to a woman who absolutely is in love with You, Father!  I thank You for Jesus, Lord!  I love You, Father!  Amen

I Am Lonely (For The Women)

O Lord,

Where are the men of courage?  Where are the men who aren’t afraid to say “no” to others so they can say “yes” to me?  Father, I so desperately want to have a husband.  Lord, I trust in You and I know that You have my interests in mind.

  Lord, my delight is in You; please grant this desire that is in my heart! (Psalm 37:4)  Father, I am lonely and I yearn for the man who will cherish me.  Father, lead me with strong hands to the man who will walk with me through the good and the bad.

  Father, prepare his heart and my own so that when we find each other we will know that this is only from You!  I love You, Lord!  Amen

Patience/Perseverance

Heavenly Father,

You understand my desires of the flesh.  Being single is tough, Father, and I pray that you will help me as I battle sexual temptation.  Lord, I want to save myself for my wife/husband.

  I don’t want to give away such a personal part of me to some woman/man that I won’t spend my life with.  Father, You want me to stay pure until the wedding day, so please give me strength when I am weak.  Give me a way out when sexual feelings bombard me.

  Lord, I need You to walk with me!  Thank You for life, Father!  May my life reflect Your love to others this day.  Amen

Don’t Settle

Dear Lord,

I long for the companionship of a mate, and it is getting so difficult.  I don’t want to settle for someone who You don’t want me with.

  I want a physical connection so bad!  I want to hold hands, kiss and cuddle!  I want hour long conversations at night!  But, I don’t want to settle just to have these things.  Father, please hear my prayer to You!  Guide me to a person who is right for me.

  Guide me to someone who loves You above all things.  Lord, give me strength for today as I continue searching for a spouse.  I love You!  Amen

Be An Example

Holy God,

Being single is a gift.  There is nothing wrong with being single, but I still long for a partner in this life.  Father, while I am waiting, give me strength to endure each day.  Lord, I am Your child.

  I pray that my life can reflect Christ to those around me always.

  Father, I will praise You in this time of singleness and I pray that You will be glorified in all I do this day!  May everyone I meet see You in me today!  And if possible, may my future spouse see me as well!  I love You!  Amen

Keep Dreaming

Blessed Lord,

I am ready to find a mate.  Lord, until the day comes where we meet, I will keep hoping and dreaming.

  I can imagine what our first kiss will feel !  I can imagine how wonderful holding hands will be!  I can imagine how emotionally connected we will be through long conversations!  I can imagine how attractive they will be and outshine all of the rest around me!  Father, I absolutely love You and I want to show that love to a mate!  Guide me to someone who will be good for me.  I love You!  Amen

Conclusion

I hope you have found these prayers helpful.  Stay strong in your singleness!  God has a plan for your life.  Give all of your dreams, hopes and plans to the Lord and let Him lead You.  He wants the best for you and that may require more waiting, but better to wait for a shining gem than to grab a tarnished jewel.  God bless you all as you continue to live a life worthy of the calling!
