Our reading for this lesson Psalm 23 and 51.
Like many, my favorite prayer comes from the 23rd Division of Psalms. Although we know what God can do for us and give to us, this prayer reminds us of who God is. Who He is to us and how we can count on Him always being there for us.
I don’t have a favorite prayer yet from God’s Word. I do know I like many of the Psalms.
John 17: 1-26
Matthew 6: 5-15
The ‘WORD’ of GOD is so vast and extensive. I have yet to identify a favorite. But if I have to choose right now, it’s almost anything in The Book of Psalms. Particularly anyone of of David’s Prayer for: Forgiveness, Protection, ex: Psalm 3.
Psalm 3:5 “..I lay down and slept. I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me.
My favorite prayer from God’s Word is Psalm 23:4
“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me .“ Thank You for being my comfort, Lord!
I really struggle to choose a favourite prayer but I think that since i became a Christian I have used a few more than others to help me come to terms with problems in my life. My father has been suffering from cancer and whenever he has a bad period I refer to Romans 10 and Deuteronomy 31:8 – these in particular offer comfort for me as I pray that my father will be helped to be comfortable and be healthy. I have two prayers books and i read at random at least 2 prayers a day. I would say that they are all favourites but each has a time when they are more useful to us.
Prayer of Praise: Psalm 118:14 The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.
Thank you, Lord, for being my strength and my song in the time of trouble, and on a daily basis, I find strength in you oh Lord!!! Thank you for you are my salvation!!! Amen
Until I read this question, I never thought about having a favorite prayer from the Bible. In my mind, I am trying to go over some of the prayers that I know, but the one that stood out to me from the lesson was the prayer of the father: I do believe; Lord, help my disbelief. That often sums up my life, especially when asking for things. I believe that God CAN do anything, but I don’t necessarily have faith that he WILL do what I am asking for. So for now, that will be my favorite prayer. Hopefully I will mature to the point where that doesn’t have to be my prayer any more.
The Lord‘a Prayer because it is how Jesus instructed us to pray 🙏
