iPray: Day 2

A Prayer for men

Heavenly Father I bless and glorify your name. You are called an Awesome Wonder. It's because we see results that we never know how to explain the methods for. You are great and greatly to be praised. I bless and honour your name for indeed there is none like you. You, Elohim, the One who creates from nothing, you speak and it must come to pass. Your children use this opportunity and indeed any occasion to give you praise.

Today we pray for our men. We pray for our fathers, our brothers, our husbands, our husbands to be, our friends, our colleagues, our uncles, our bosses because there is no sphere of life in which we will not find a man functioning in one way or the other. Father, I know it must grieve your heart to see what is happening in our world, it is a world that has turned it's back on you to do things its own way and then turn around to blame you when results are not as expected. We have allowed the enemy make us fight each other instead of standing together in unity to declare war against the agents of darkness.

Daddy, YOU created Adam, YOU breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, YOU gave him a purpose, a description of who you had created him to be and what you had created him for. There are many avenues to lay blame for the issues we find today but no healing can occur until men acknowledge that they need you. Father I pray to ignite the hearts of men today that they may seek you and find you, that they live to do your will. I pray for men of all races and cultures, of all educational backgrounds and all career paths that they will bend their knees to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our churches are filled with them but in this era Lord, we pray that our men will become God chasers and not church members, that like the deer they will pant after you O Lord. Father, that a reverent fear of you be put in their hearts in Jesus name. Your word says that the man who fears the Lord is BLESSED. I pray that their children be mighty in the land because a man who fears you and leans on you for guidance will receive wisdom to train their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. I pray that men be like Joseph who always heard the Lord and obeyed. I pray that men stand up to the plate, stand for what they believe, speak out against injustice and speak for righteousness.

I pray that men will understand the purpose for which you have created them and run with the vision. I pray for a sense of balance and priorities. I pray according to your word in Psalm 128 that for the men who fear the Lord and walk in His ways that they eat the fruit of their labour and blessing and prosperity be theirs in Jesus name. That their children be mighty in the land, wealth and riches are in their house, that even in darkness, light will dawn on them.

I pray that our men will be men of integrity, that they be true promise keepers,men who mean what they say and say what they mean, that this generation will teach the next generation in the things of God. Father, I come against the spirit of fear in the lives of men for unlike women they are least likely to admit but Father I ask for strength in Jesus name. I do not presume to understand the needs of men but I know that there is no need that you cannot supply and when we come to you, you have an answer. Thank you because this will be called the generation of men who have raised the standard in all areas of life in Jesus name.

Father, I know there are some men that have given up on life, given up on you, given up that things will change. I ask in your precious name that you give them a renewed sense of purpose that you heal from the hurts of the past. Touch their lives O Lord and show them that irrespective of how yesterday was, tomorrow dawns with a new slate and a NEW thing that you can do. I pray for ministries that cater exclusively to men, that you continue to be their support, that YOU use them to bring a transformation in the lives of men in Jesus name.

Thank you Father, thank you Lord for I know you are a God who answers when we pray. Sometimes as women we struggle so hard to get men to change rather than lifting up the creation to the Creator for 'servicing' when needed. We love our men, we respect our men, we encourage our men, today we pray for our men. Let your word work in their lives in Jesus name.


Scripture references: Psalm 112 and Psalm 128

Remain blessed and highly favoured. 2010 continues to remain our year of 'The Lord has done this'.Keep rising.

Amen! I love how you "breathe" your prayers to the Lord. You are so precious. Nicely spoken from the heart of a Godly woman.

I praise you, Lord for Believer - for her obedience to your call to dedicate this whole month to communicative heart language to you, Lord. I praise you and look expectantly towards your manifesting grace on all people through these prayers, because you care - because we invite your divine intervention into our lives. In Jesus Name - Amen

Amen! I love the part "Sometimes as women we struggle so hard to get men to change rather than lifting up the creation to the Creator for 'servicing' when needed."

Oh Lord, we thank you for the men in our lives. We pray that you continue to strengthen them and empower them to be wonderful brothers, husbands, leaders, supervisors, cousins, etc. I pray for grace and direction for them all and that they will seek you and find you. In Jesus mighty name! Amen.
