My fiance is sick with an unknown illness (he has been sick for a long time now) but recently has lost even more weight and is very malnourished, which is making him sicker. We do not have answers and there is very little he can eat and it's all blended at this point...the medical Industry has not been helpful or kind and we are running out of options. He has also been through some really traumatic and haunting stuff that has caused him a lot of pain and turmoil and he needs help getting past it. It has changed him and I think it is contributing to a decline in his health. He needs healing in every way, and he needs hope and peace. Please pray for him, to receive physical and emotional healing and to have peace. I'm not sure how much more he can take. Lord you are good and I thank you for your blessings, let us keep thankfully trusting you. Thank you for salvation and forgive me of my sins and for allowing worry to take the place of trust. God

How do I pray?

It’s a natural question to ask, especially when you consider that prayer is the act of talking with God. So how should we pray? How ought we converse with the creator of the universe? Fortunately there are many ways you can approach prayer. Below are four different starting places to help you pray.

Practical prayer guides:

  1. Use an acrostic to help guide your prayer:

A —Acknowledge who God is. “God, I love You for Your (mercy, faithfulness, goodness, etc.).”

C —Confess your sin. “Father, forgive me for (my selfishness, my disobedience, my pride, etc.).”

T —Thank God for His blessings. “Thank You for (my family, my home, my church, this day, etc.).”

S —Submit your requests to God. “Father, (use my life, heal me, help me to find a job, etc.).”

  1. Use Jesus’ prayer as your example (Matthew 6:9-13):
    • Acknowledge God’s holiness: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
    • Acknowledge God’s purposes: your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
    • Ask for God’s provision: Give us today our daily bread.
    • Ask for God’s forgiveness: Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    • Ask for God’s spiritual protection: And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
  1. Use a psalm as your prayer.
  2. Write your own prayer in the style of psalms.
