ABIDE Prayer: God’s Faithfulness
The purpose of ABIDE is to seek God through prayer, rely on the Spirit as we gather together, and pray with unity and purpose. ABIDE prayers are Scripture-led and Spirit-focused prayers.
There is so much going on in our world today. Changes, challenges, trials and pain are a part of all of our lives. The enemy would love for God’s children to walk through this time in our lives with our focus on our circumstances and not our God. Let’s begin our ABIDE by asking God to help us focus on Him.
Prayer: God, we need you. Help us focus our thoughts and our hearts on you. Remove any distraction, confusion and discouragement from the enemy from us in the name of Jesus. We worship you and bow to you alone. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Prayers of Remembrance
“For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.” (Psalm 57:10)

Prayers for God’s Help
“Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them – the LORD, who remains faithful forever.” (Psalm 146:5-6)
God promises to bless us when we ask and receive His help and put our hope in Him! Let’s ask God to help us and put our hope in Him.

Prayers of Surrender
“Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.” (Psalm 145:13)
When we walk through various trials and difficulties in life, we can receive God’s peace, comfort and strength when we focus on God and His promises. God’s Kingdom is everlasting. God is faithful to his promises. God is loving towards us.
What trials are you walking through today? What circumstances in your life or family feel overwhelming? Let’s give our burdens, trials and fears to God and choose to trust in Him – His faithfulness and His promises for our lives, families, church, community and nation.
Prayer: God, we give you ____________________ (fill in the blank with whatever you need to give/surrender to God) and choose to trust you.
Closing Prayer: God, thank you for your faithfulness. We worship you. We trust you. We declare that you are faithful, good, loving and your Kingdom endures forever. Thank you that you are with us and that we have all that we need in you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
