It’s amazing how the Lord of All Creation knows your heart better than anyone else. He knows exactly what You need even before You pray to Him. But of course, we must learn to ask. This Thursday, let us ask for supplication through these prayers.
Prayer for the forgiveness of sins
Lord, I come to You this Thursday with a repentant heart. I am sorry for all the things I’ve done that are not pleasing to You. I am sorry for the times I chose to live my life on my own terms, knowing that I will hurt and disappoint You. I am humbly asking for Your forgiveness.
I know Lord that it is not Your will for me to live a life that dishonors You, so I ask that You please forgive me. In Jesus’ name, amen.

But I ask and pray that You supply all my needs. Help me not to worry and remind me that You will always provide if it’s according to Your will.
Along with every supplication that You will provide me with, please give me a grateful heart that is always content. In Jesus’ name, amen.

I also ask that You guide me this Thursday into becoming an example in speech and conduct so that when people see me, they will see and encounter You, Jesus.
Please help me discern what is good and what is not, Lord. I want to be receptive to the Holy Spirit’s leading in my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.

I can never grow in my walk with You if I am not willing to endure everything that it takes. So Jesus, teach me to persevere and be patient. Help me to love like You.
And most of all, I pray that my faith will be rooted in Your love and grace. In Jesus’ name, amen.

I pray for opportunities where I can share Your Word. And it is only through Your grace that I can be able to accomplish this. So Jesus, this Thursday, I pray that You will empower me. Use me, Lord.
When Your perfect time comes, I know that these people will also be saved because they believed in You. I look forward to that day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
