Life comes with different types of storms. Some storms are so boisterous it takes the grace of God and presence of God to overcome them. The hope and assurance we have is that if Jesus is in the boat of our lives, no matter the life-threatening storm before us, we won’t capsize. Pray these prayers to have Jesus with you in the boat of your life:
Lord Jesus, I invite You afresh into my life. Come and ride along with me in the boat of my life. Let me have a fresh encounter with Your glory. Let Your glory bring about a radical transformation in my life. Let it bring about a turning away from sin to righteousness. Let it spark of a revival in my life and family.
O Lord, be the Captain of the boat of my life; be the One stirring the boat of My life, be the One leading and directing me so I don’t miss my way; so I don’t follow a route different from the One You would have me take. O Lord, hold me by Your right hand of power so I don’t go astray, or fall into error. Father, help me so I don’t take decisions that don’t have Your consent and backing.
Father, remove all distractions in my life and help me to devote myself to Your service. Help me to begin to seek You, follow You and serve You like never before.
O Lord, My Father, be a shelter and shade to me from the heat of the day, and my hiding place from the storms, dangers, tragedies, calamities and trials of life.
O Lord, daily carry me in Your everlasting arms so that no matter the boisterous storms before me, the boat of my life; the boat of my spiritual life, my health, my marriage and family, my finances, business, career and education will not sink.
Father, please surround me with Your presence and let Your presence give me peace in the midst of all troubles and challenges of life.
O Lord, help me to always know You are with me and let me walk with this confidence. Make the knowledge of Your presence so real to me that irrespective of what I am going through; irrespective of the bad news and bad report all around, my mind is at peace. I confess and declare that my mind is stayed on the Lord and I have peace. I refuse to be troubled and anxious over any situation. I put my trust in God and I refuse to fear and fret, I refuse to give up. I declare and confess that no storm of life will shipwreck my faith. No storm is too turbulent for my God to calm, no problem is too big for Him to solve, no mountain is too hard for Him to move, no enemy is too strong for my God to bring down, no mistake is too bad for my God to correct. In the name of Jesus, I hold tightly to God and His promise of deliverance and receive peace like a river.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I rebuke every wind and wave of ill health, stagnation, failure, poverty, barrenness and fruitlessness that have been blowing on the boat of my life. I command every wind of affliction blowing in my direction to be calm in Jesus mighty name. Amen!
O Lord, come into the boat of my life and turn all my past failures to success. Where I have caught nothing; where I have been labouring without any result, let me begin to enjoy the fruit of my labour. Father, bless me and make me a blessing to many.
Father, I bring my nation before You and pray that as heat is reduced by the shadow of a cloud, let the rising waves of unemployment, poverty, insecurity, untimely death and national unrest be stilled now in Jesus mighty name. Amen!
Father, no one encounters You and the person’s life remains the same. Father, let me truly encounter You and let my life, never be the same again. Let me have a divine encounter that will change my level spiritually, financially, physically and emotionally.
Lord Jesus, please enter into the boat of my life today and let Your divine presence overshadow me and single me out for an unusual and uncommon testimony. Give me a first of its kind testimony; give me the kind of breakthrough I have never had before, the kind my eyes have not seen before, the kind my mind never imagined I could have.
