Prayer To Seek God First

Our spiritual well-being has a direct effect on our physical being. When we are in tune with God, we become more receptive to His Spirit.

Learning how to pray and how to seek God first is not a pursuit that involves the intellect alone, but it is impossible without a willingness on the part of your heart to surrender all things you hold dear. Seek God first with your heart. Ponder upon our need to seek God in prayer while I share this Prayer To Seek God First with you.

Dear Lord, today I come to you and ask that you would fill my soul with your thoughts, your voice. I believe with all of my heart that you can speak to me and I need to know what you want for me and for our home. This is why my humble prayer is for you to seek God first, before anything else. Give me the strength to follow you wholly, even if it means revamping some aspect of my life or changing it completely. Send down your angels so that they may protect me from all evil, direct me in the path of righteousness and keep my mind focused on your work, not selfish desires.

I ask that God gives me life and peace, health, sustenance and all that is good for my family and the whole world. No need to specify them by name. It is the desire of my heart to seek God first. I just want to live with God because it’s good for us and can give us what we need in life to be fulfilled and content.

Prayer To Seek God First

2 Corinthians 9:6 – “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.”

Galatians 6:7-8 – “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”

Pray: Father, my heart longs to move from sinfulness to righteousness. I know that I am made righteous by Jesus, but I also know that in the economy of Your Kingdom, I will reap what I sow – emotionally and spiritually. Please help me to sow good things generously. Use me to sow what please the Holy Spirit and not myself.

May my church be known in the community as a generous body of believers who care for others passionately, and who demonstrate the life of Christ with our words and our actions.

Help our nation to return to righteousness in the powerful Name of Jesus! Lord, You will not be mocked by those who malign You and who do not call upon Your Name. Restore integrity and uprightness and wisdom and kindness to our culture so that You will be glorified in the midst of Your people. Turn the hearts of those who will not bow before You so that many will come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior.
