The Bible has the prayers the prayers of its "characters" within its scriptures. These are the anointed Word of God used to lift up the name of Jesus and defeat the enemy. There are books written on this subject so this is not a comprehensive list, but the following are scriptures that I pray.
Prayers of Humility
2 Samuel 7:18 ...Who am I, O Lord God? and what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?
Psalm 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
Prayers of Forgiveness
Psalm 51 - Entire Chapter
Psalm 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Psalm 67:3 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
Psalm 143:10 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
Psalm 119:33 Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.
Psalm 5:8 Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
Psalm 27:11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
For the Church
2 Thessalonian 1:11-12
2 Samuel 7:29 Therefore now let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may continue for ever before thee: for thou, O Lord God, hast spoken it: and with thy blessing let the house of thy servant be blessed for ever.
1 Chronicles 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
Write these scriptures down in a journal or notebook. Use them to strengthen your life of prayer and continue to add scriptures to pray. It will bless you because praying the Word of God is life-changing.
