Praying for Yourself – for Favor with God and Man

by Rick

(1 Thes 5:17 NLT)  Never stop praying.

 

This morning we continue our series entitled, “Re-Energizing Your Prayer Life,” by continuing to look at “What to Pray For.”  What I have been teaching you to do is to pray Word-based prayers.  This is very important because we have learned that we must ask in faith, and faith is all about confidence.  If we doubt while we are praying, then the chances of that prayer coming to pass are slim.  John said, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us” (1 Jn 5:14).  We want to have the confidence that we are asking for something that aligns with God’s will.  Well, when you pray in accordance with God’s Word, then you know you are praying in accordance with His will.  I thank God for His divine favor on my life.  The Favor of God can do more in a minute than labor can do in a lifetime.  One moment Joseph was a prisoner, the next he was the Prime Minister.  That’s the type of thing that can happen when the favor of God is flowing in your life.  With that in mind, I have laid out for you a prayer for “Favor with God and Man.”  The scripture references are at the end of each portion of the prayer.  Pray it in faith and expect the Favor of God.

 

Prayer for Favor with God and Man:

Father, I come to you in the name of Your dear Son Jesus, my Savior, and the Apostle and High Priest over my profession.  What I profess today is Your Word concerning favor in and for my life (Heb 3:1).

 

Like Joseph, I prosper in every place and in every situation, because You Lord, are always with me.  Your presence brings with it Your power, protection, and peace.  I thank You for blessing me to experience preferential treatment everywhere I go.  You raise up people who use their power, their ability, and their influence to help me in ways I cannot help myself  (Gen 39:1-6, 21).

 

I choose to associate with those who are wise, blessed, and highly favored.  Wisdom is transferred by association and my association with these people promotes increase in every area of my life (Prov 13:20, Gen 30:27).

 

You Father, made Jesus to be sin for me, that I might be made the righteousness of God in Him.  As the righteousness of God, I declare that I am highly favored in Your sight (2 Cor 5:21, Psalm 5:12; Prov 14:9).

 

I operate in integrity and I seek to do good in Your sight daily.  As a result, I obtain Your favor and I experience Your best!  (Prov 11:27; 12:2).

 

I walk in Your Word daily.  Your Word is the ruler by which I judge every decision.  Your wisdom is the guide for my life.  By seeking Your wisdom and not my own, I receive Your favor in every area of my life (Prov 3:1-4; 8:33-35).

 

You favor is life and it endures for a lifetime (Psalm 30:5 AMP).  My enemies cannot triumph over me because of Your favor upon my life (Psalm 41:11).  You Father, surround and protect me with favor like a shield (Psalm 5:12).

 

I am ready for this day and I am confident that Your Favor will go ahead me and prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies (Psalm 23:5).  Favor can do more in a minute than labor can do in a lifetime, and I have confidence that Your favor is ON me.  I have great expectations for this day and for the rest of my life.  Thank You Father for releasing Your favor over me.  I receive it and walk in it daily.  I pray all these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

This is Today’s Word!  Apply it and Prosper!

Sir. How can I personally meet you? This is not just a prayer to me but truly the mind of God for me this season. I started praying this not long, within this short while God has opened a great door before me far more than I was requesting for. I need you to partner with me in prayers because the effectual prayer of the righteous does mightily and greatly. I got a job position where in my life I wouldn’t have personally send my CV because in every ramification I’m not qualified but now they are the one asking me to come join their team. Please, both day and night remember me in prayers.
