Sample Prayer Requests for Conversational Prayer

sampleprayersHere are some topics that you may wish to include in your prayer time. These are suggestions, and we encourage you to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in your times of prayer.


  • That God would lead and direct your prayer time.
  • That you would be able to experience His presence during your prayer time.
  • That God would anoint your life for His purposes.
  • That His presence would move greatly in your church services and touch lives.
  • That He would lead, and give wisdom to your children who are raising your grandchildren.
  • That He would protect, and direct your children and grandchildren’s lives.
  • That your children’s marriages would be blessed, that they would be in unity, and that God’s love would pour through them for each other.
  • That there would be unity in the church (yours and the church at large). “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” (Ephesians 4:3)
  • That unsaved loved ones and friends would come to know the Lord, that the scales would fall from their eyes and that they would see the truth. “Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized,” (Acts 9:18)
  • That He would give you a heart for His ways.
  • That He would give you direction in the way that He would have you go. “in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:6)
  • That He would be your strength, and your wisdom. “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.” (Psalm 28:7)
  • That He would give you opportunities to share His Gospel with others.
  • That He would show you where you should be ministering in your local church.
  • That He would allow you to be a blessing to those around you. “And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.” (1 Chronicles 4:10)
  • That He would mould your character into the likeness of Him. “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Romans 8:29)
  • That your heart would break over the things that break His heart.
  • That He would teach you how to pray and interceed for those situations that break His heart.

“One of the most subtle burdens God ever puts on us as saints is this burden of discernment concerning other souls.  He reveals things in order that we may take the burden of these souls before Him and form the mind of Christ about them.  It is not that we bring God into touch with our minds, but that we rouse ourselves until God is able to convey His mind to us about the one for whom we intercede.” Oswald Chambers – Quote from his book ‘Prayer – A Holy Occupation’

    Heavenly Father, Tharu has shown his faith by asking for prayer and so we ask that You would grant his request. He has worked to get to graduation but needs a way for his fees to be paid. PTC is a non-profit organization dependent on donor funding and our money must be used only for ministry purposes so we cannot give him any financial help. We ask that you bring him the needed funds from a surprise source so that he knows that You have done it and he can give You all the glory and thanksgiving. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    Father God, I lift Selma up to you this day. May You bless her with wisdom, discernment, and patience in this very important area of life. May Your will be done in both Selma and Mike’s life. In Jesus’ name, Amen

    To Vieira, thank you for leaving a comment to Selma. However, without knowing all the facts of this situation it’s not right to tell her to leave. God’s timing for everything that takes place in our lives, especially marriage, is something that we must all patiently wait for. Usually He has work to do in individuals before He blesses us with such things.

  • Viera says:

    Selma.. If your boyfriend promised you to marry you and he is not doing it, I would ran away from such a man because he can’t do what he promised and such a man is not trustworthy.

  • Chris says:

    selma…we can trust jesus for the people, times and events in our life that are according to his perfect will. i pray jesus show you and Mike what your relationship is to be, whether its only brother and sister in christ or husband and wife in christ. let his will be done in your lives as it is in heaven is my prayer in jesus name amen!

  • selma says:

As I surrender my relationship to God may he continue to bless us with a loving and committed relationship with each other. Thank you so much!
