40 Days of Prayer & Fasting: Week 5 Prayers from the Bible

These are prayers prayed by people of God in the Bible, that He heard and answered. We can pray the principles of these prayers in our situations too, and expect that He will answer.

Day 29 (May 3, 2020)

When Isaiah saw the Lord, he was convicted of his sin and cried out for cleansing. We can ask God to reveal our sin to us in the light of His glory and ask to be cleansed too (Is. 6:1-7).

Day 30 (May 4, 2020)

When the massive Assyrian army demanded Jerusalem’s surrender, King Hezekiah prayed to God to deliver them for His honor’s sake, and God delivered them. We can pray boldly based on what honors the Lord. (Is.  37:14-29).

Day 31 (May 5, 2020)

Jeremiah prayed that God would enable them to see their sin, repent of it and return to Him, so that they would be renewed. That is a good prayer for us to pray at this time. (Lam. 5:21).

Day 32 (May 6, 2020)

Daniel identifies with the sin of his people and prays for forgiveness and the fulfillment of prophecies of their return to God. We too can identify with the sins of the church and our nation and seek His forgiveness and blessing. (Dan. 9:1-19).

Day 33 (May 7, 2020)

Just as the disciples cried out to Jesus, to save them from drowning, we too can cry out when we are faced with a crisis (Matt. 8:23-27).

Day 34 (May 8, 2020)

A blind man cries out for healing and Jesus grants it according to his faith. God still heals today. (Matt. 9:27-31).

Day 35 (May 9, 2020)

Jesus prayed a prayer of thanksgiving to His Father for revealing the truth about Himself to the unlearned and children and He is doing that to this day (Matt. 11:25,26).
