iPray: Day 4

A prayer for women offered by Jaycee

Dear Father, we’re here again today to give You all the Praise and glory. There is no one like You, and there will never be anyone who compares to You. The train of Your robe fills our temples, and Your presence, Oh Lord, is deeply comforting. The One who said “Let there be light,” and look, there is light till this very day. The One who told the turbulent seas, “Peace, be still,” and the waters ceased to make havoc. The One who split both the Red Sea and the River Jordan into two so that His people could pass through in the middle, we worship You. El Elyon (God Most High), we glorify Your Name. Words cannot be used to completely describe who You really are; when it boils down to the basics You are indeed INDESCRIBABLE. You’re the One who answers prayers, even when all hope is lost. You’re the one who revives us once more when we’ve almost given up. Thank You, because of who You are.

Father, today we come to you to pray for women. Lord, in the beginning (Genesis) You saw that man needed a helper, and You gave the woman to him. There is never an error with You, Lord: You did it for a great purpose. Thank You for women. Thank You for making women nurturers of both their men and children. Thank You for the anatomy of the woman. Thank You for the wonderful and mysterious ways You’ve made the woman beautiful. There is no higher intelligence that can do what You’ve done, Father. You are the ultimate architect. Teach women to understand who You created them to be: helpers and sustainers. Not to be superior to men, but to be the driving force in helping them to achieve their own destinies while fulfilling ours. Help us to understand that we are not inferior either, but we have a powerful unparalleled mission here on earth.

Lord, I want to pray for insight and wisdom for women. I pray for the ability to be able to decipher logistics, either of our home, our families, or even our businesses. Please give us the spirit of discernment. Open our ears to hear Your voice (Job 33:16), so that we will be able to gauge the affairs of our homes. Help us to know when to go left, or when to go right. Teach us your secrets, so that when people come to us with questions, like they came to Deborah (one of the judges of Israel), we will have the answers ready.

El Roi, the God who sees everything, we ask that You transform the women of today’s society, especially in the Body of Christ, into women of virtue. The literal meaning of a virtuous woman is a woman of valor in the sense of all forms of excellence, a woman who is morally excellent. Father, I pray for the spirit of excellence in the lives of women. You have given us an unusual sense of energy, in that we can do whatever we make up our minds to do. Father, I speak excellence into our homes, our families, our jobs, our businesses (the market places of the world), and into the lives of the people we get into contact with every day. Let the works of our hands be blessed, and cause our children to sit at our feet and obtain the wisdom of God. Let our husbands be known at the gates of the city, because through our excellence we helped them to become great men of valor. Help us to be morally sound now, for if we are not how do we pass virtuosity to future generations? Wherever we go, especially being children of God, let people be able to see Your light because of our distinct moral values.

Oh God, the One who answers prayers, I want to pray for unmarried women. Father, please teach them to understand the importance of their bodies. Teach them that their bodies are to be holy, a concept that is highly misunderstood in today’s society. Father, there is a difference between a married woman and an unmarried woman (I Corinthians 7: 32-35). The unmarried woman is to care more about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and spirit. Please speak to the hearts of women so that they know that their bodies are not to be shared and tossed between many men, but that abstinence is a holy thing to attain before marriage, so that they do not commit a sin against their own bodies. Teach them to know that it is not for Your own benefit Father, but for theirs (1 Corinthians 6:18). Help them to understand that they will not do this by their own power, but that the Holy Spirit will teach them how to do it. In their abstinence teach them to lie at Your feet and bask in Your presence, to study Your instructions and prepare for excellence.

I also want to pray for married women. In the book of Proverbs 31, You gave the descriptions of a virtuous wife. Lord, please grant married women such wisdom so that the hearts of their husbands will safely trust them. Trust is a big issue Father, but I know there is nothing impossible with You. Let there be no arising situations that will disrupt the trust of a husband to his wife. Give women the wisdom to be able to increase the profits of their household (“she considers a field and buys it; from her profits she plants a vineyard”-Proverbs 31:16). Father, help married women to sustain their homes, such that there will always be provision. It takes great planning to do this, so I also ask that You bless women with wisdom to plan for their households. Also teach married women what they need to do to extend their hands to the poor, because great seeds yield great harvests. I pray that children and husbands will rise up and call their mother/wives blessed, because of all these gifts that You will grant to women. And their works will also praise them wherever they go (“…in the gates”).

I pray for strength, honor, wisdom, and the fear of the Lord for all women. “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.” (Proverbs 31:30).

Thank You Lord, for answering all these prayers. Holy Spirit I pray that You will utter things that were not even prayed in this post, because You already know what we ought to pray. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

May we live up to your divine design, Lord. Forgive us when we're fearful and weak. Strengthen us with your Joy that we might stand in the midst of strife and breathe your presence. May we be overcomers in all situations - for your Glory. Go before us and light he way. Protect us from behind. Favor the older women to be Titus women - to teach the younger women and perserve the spiritual hertitage through the generations to come. May our ceiling be the floor that they dance upon. We give your praise and glorify your name, for you are our everything! We were born to also be a helper of God. May you find us worthy to be called women of God.

In Jesus Name, Amen

Father I thank you and bless you for today. Thank you that I'm a woman, a DIVA for that matter! I know I complain sometimes about being a 'gal and all that entails but I am so very grateful and will never want to change for anything. Thank you for women, thank you for the blessing of sisterhood. I am a woman and I am blessed. I'm not perfect but I'm available to be used by God. I am God's woman, praising, praying, inspiriing, encouraging. Thank you Father, thank you Lord

God bless you Jaycee, this is deep on so many levels! Thanks for delivering me from a tight fix! Lol!

Dear Daddy, our Rock of Ages and Ancient of Days. I worship You this morning. Ever faithful God. The One who SEES (El Roi), and the Lifter of our heads...I worship You.

I continue to pray that you will train us to become Proverbs 31 women. That You will train our fingers for battle, and teach our ears to always listen to your instruction concerning our purpose. I thank You already because I know that You've answered our prayers.

Thank You Lord.
