Prayer For The Truth To Be Exposed At Work
Bible Verses About Truth: 20 Great Scripture Quotes
Truth is defined by one source as “sincerity in action, character, and utterance” . Perhaps the most famous verse about truth in the Bible is what Jesus said “… I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
” (John 14:6) So Jesus is truth and Jesus is also the Word (John 1:1, 14). As Christians we believe that every word in the Bible is true; this is the foundation upon which we live our lives.
Knowing what the Bible says about truth and hiding God’s word in our heart helps us to know when we are listening to the Voice of Truth. Here are twenty great scripture quotes about truth.

James 1:18Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

John 17:8For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. (Jesus speaking)

Prayers for Protection at Work, Home and from Enemies
On this page you’ll find a list of prayers and verses for protection at work and home. Prayers to keep you safe and protect you from evil and enemies stand in your way.
Unless we avail ourselves within the protective arms of our God, we leave ourselves vulnerable to the attacks of the evil one. We must be diligent in reading God’s word, and ask Him to watch over and protect us individually, as well as His children. When you pray for yourself, pray for those you love, those you have never met, and even those who have hurt you in some way.
Let it be known that with God, all things are possible. Not some things, ALL things. When we feel afraid in life, ask for His protection and safety. Our Father does not desert His children. These prayers of protection are offered as a way to preempt those attacks and keep oneself and one’s loved ones under the protection of God at all times.
If the need for protection whether in your own life, or in the life of someone you love is present, let us pray for you at the holiest place on earth, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
We have faith that sending your prayer request to the place where our Lord Jesus Christ gave his life for us will help your request be granted! It is our honor and privilege to be a part of your prayer warrior, and to ask the Lord to watch over you, protect you, and keep you, always.
The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my savior; thou saved me from violence. I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
2 Samuel 22:3-4
Prayer for Protection from Illness
Heavenly Father, I adore you and I love you with all my heart and soul. I thank you for having created me, and for watching over me in all that I do, every single day. Pardon me for my sins.
I ask that you watch over me while I rest and recover from illness. Please protect my body, and help me heal from this sickness that weakens me. May your unending grace be with me forever and ever.
I trust in all that You do, and all that You are.
Prayer for Divine Protection
Grant me, O Lord, your protection. Within your protection, strength. And within your strength, understanding. And within your understanding, knowledge.
And within your knowledge, the power of justice. And within the power of justice, the love of all of Creation. Guide and protect my body, my mind, and my best judgment in all things.
For you, O Lord, will never leave my side. In this I trust. Amen.
Prayer for Protection Through Life’s Journey
In the name of God I move forth through life’s journey. May God the Father always be with me, God the Son protect and watch over me, and God the Holy Ghost to stand by my side as I travel through the life you have given me. Amen
Prayer for Protection While Traveling
I ask that God’s Angels guard and keep you. As you travel, may you remain safe and secure, with His presence known to you at all times. May He watch over you as you leave home, wandering and maneuvering in other parts of God’s great earth. You are not alone. For He is always with you. Amen.
Prayer for Protection Over Your Family
Heavenly Father, I pray for your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my family and loved ones. I ask You to keep evil far away from them, and to help them to trust You as their refuge and strength in all things, without ceasing.
I pray You will guard their minds from harmful instruction and sinful ways, and to grant them discernment to recognize the truth.
I pray that You will make them strong and if they find themselves amist danger, recognizing that You have overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong.
Please help them to find rest in your shadow, and through your everlasting embrace, as they live in the spiritual shelter You provide for them. Let them know that the only safe place is in beside their Heavenly Father, and that their home on earth is only temporary.
Prayer for Personal Protection
Oh Heavenly Father, I come to You today, bowing my head and opening my heart, asking for protection from all the evil this world holds. Lord, we are assailed moment by moment with images on television, the internet, books and newspapers that leave us vulnerable to sin of every kind, every single day.
Surround us with your divine hedge of unbreakable protection. Encompass us round about with your strength and your glorious might. Let all who take refuge in You be happy and feel safe. Please shelter us, Heavenly Father, that those who love your name may exalt in You.
For it is You who blesses the righteous man and those who give their lives to You.
“And Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” Exodus 14:13-14
“A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.” Psalm 91:7
“We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
15 Things You Can Do To Prepare Your Heart For Prayer
Jumping into the spiritual realm from this temporary one can be as comfortable as jumping into ice cold water. Some people thrive on this refreshing shock, but most of us need a little bit more preparation. Without this preparation, our prayers can come off as cold and mere words.
All of us want to connect with God from our heart. So, let’s look at some ways we can ready us. Here are 15 things you can do to prepare your heart for prayer.
This can sound simple, but we can easily end up not praying because we are waiting for the right time. Sometimes we just need the action of praying to position our hearts to connect with God. While saying our prayers, we end up speaking what’s on our heart.
I chose the word sing since worship should entail our entire lives. But singing worship songs puts truth to our lips. These songs don’t have to be deep theological statements. The angels around the throne of God simply sing, “holy, holy, holy.” Simple words remind your heart of God’s truth.
Give yourself a pep talk. Say things that are true to prepare your heart to come before a God who is truth. Remind yourself that you are a child of God, and He wants you to boldly come before His presence. Speak out how God is in control and working all things for your good. Saying them aloud allows your ears to hear and your heart to respond.
You may need to change your physical state to prepare your heart. C.S. Lewis is quoted saying that whatever the body does, affects the soul. Do you have trouble paying attention as you pray in that comfy chair? Take a knee and tell your body that it is time to pray.
Turn off your electrical devices. Find a quiet spot where you can turn out the noise of this world and the noise in your head. Elijah didn’t hear God in the wind or storm, but it was in the quiet whisper. Turning off the distractions allow you to more clearly connect with God.
As you are trying to quiet the noises in your head, you may have legitimate things pop up that you need to deal with. Use the notepad to write it down to help you remember when you are done praying. This simple, practical thing may be the item that greatly increases your intimacy in prayer.
Reading the Bible should be obvious, but it is not your inductive Bible study methods. Read the Bible to connect with the One who wrote it. Who is the God of the Bible? What is He ? Who does it say you are? What is your relationship with Him? Romans 8 is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible. I believe you will find it helpful in your times in prayer.
Isn’t this the same as the one above? Yes, it is also part of Scripture, but the Psalms expresses the heart of one struggling to connect with God. You will find true emotions in there. Emotions that you may be scared to show God. Read the Psalms to give you freedom to completely expose your heart to God.
Feeling guilty over mistakes you have made will put a wall up between you and God. He loves you, paid all the wages of sin, and made a way for you to come. But, you need to believe it and take Him up on His forgiveness. Confess and come before Him.
Your confession doesn’t have to be with a priest, but confessing your sin to another believer who knows and loves you is incredibly healing. Seeing the acceptance in another person’s eyes helps you believe that you will also find it with God. The removal of shame through finding love in the middle of your sin releases you to freely connect with God.
Hell is eternity apart from God. Hell on earth is isolation for other people. We are created to need other people. Other people, who speak God truth to us and believe that He is for us, encourage us to spend time in prayer. If these people believe in me, imagine what God must think.
Maybe you don’t know of a friend that can encourage you in prayer. Keep looking. But, in the meantime, read quotes on prayer from current leaders and/or saints who have gone ahead of you. We have several on this site, or you can buy the book with over 3,500 prayer quotes.
Bill Johnson says, “when you fast you tell God you are hungrier for the things of His world than you are for those things of this one.” Fasting awakens your heart by making hard decisions to go after more of God. It is a way to draw near to God, so we can be aware of His drawing near to us.
This may seem in contradiction to the previous suggestion, but pleasure releases joy, which makes room for hope, to which faith attaches. Eric Little said that when he ran he could feel the pleasures of God. You may not enjoy running, but being aware of God with you as you sit down to a video game or play a few holes of golf may prepare you for enjoying God more in prayer.
You still may not enjoy running or exercise, but taking care of your body helps your relationship with God. Paul says that your body is a temple of the living God. Appropriate exercise will awaken your spirit to more of Him.
