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

Praise

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 18:2-3
2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Psalm 145:1-4
1 I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
3 Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
4 One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

God's Will

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

Ephesian 1:17-18
17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

2 Thessalonian 1:11-12
11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:
12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Family

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.

Blessing

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.
