A Prayer For Learning How To Pray


Our heavenly father who, who through thy son Jesus Christ hast said that men ought always to pray and not to faint, we beseech thee teach us to pray. Our spirit is willing but our flesh is weak. Give us grace each day to approach thy throne and seek thy face; to be concerned as much for the glory as for our need; and in everything by prayer and supplication with thanks giving to make our requests known to thee, until all our  lives be gathered up into thy presence and every breath is prayer. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

(John R W. Stott)

May the strength of God pilot us.

May the power of God preserve us.

May the wisdom of God instruct us.

May the hand of God direct us.

May the shield of God defend us.

May the host od God guard us against the snares of evil and the temptations of the world.

May Christ be with us, Christ before us,

Christ within us, Christ over us.

May thy salvation, O Lord, be always ours this day and for evermore
