28 Short Prayers

Use our short prayers to offer to God to thank Him, to praise Him, to help you. We do not need long drawn out prayers to talk with God, a short prayer sometimes expresses more than an hour-long prayer. Talk to God in prayer often throughout the day. A simple prayer is to recognize God and to be thankful.

As 1 John 5:14 states: "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us." Or reflect on James 5:13: "Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise."

  1. Father,
    This is a short prayer to praise you
    For all you do for me
    For being with my family
    For all the beauty.

    Thank you for loving me
    Help me to be
    And fulfill the purpose
    You created me for.

    Praise and glory to you!



  2. Oh God,
    Words can't describe my feelings for you
    My heart wants more of you
    Help me to live each day
    According to your ways.

    Thank you for being part of my life
    For helping me deal with strife
    Keep my eyes focused on you
    No matter what others do.



  3. Thank you Jesus
    Thank you for dying for me
    Thank you for the peace you bring
    Thank you for the beauty that surrounds us
    Thank you for the love you have for us

    Let me live to praise you
    Let me share your peace
    Let me open my eyes to the simple things
    Let me spread your love.



  4. Father God
    Each and every day is a miracle
    The breath that I breathe
    The eyes that let me see
    You are with us each and every day.

    Thank you for waking me us this morning
    I will not waste this day you have given to me
    Father God I give you
    All honor and glory.



  5. Father, I thank Thee, for this life,
    Full of joy, and full of strife,
    And if the latter is thy will,
    Impatient heart of mine be still;
    For Jesus is my own true friend,
    And he will guide me to the end.

    Father, I thank Thee, I know not how.
    It is Thy all unfailing power,
    That keepeth me, from hour to hour,
    O God, I fain would feel it now,
    Teach me to love and praise thy name.
    Lord, let Thy goodness o'er me reign,
    And, when at last this life is o'er.
    With Thee I'll dwell forevermore
    Mary C. Plummer



  6. Lord God of all creation
    We are grateful for what you have given us.
    Help us to take what is given,
    And with patience and love,
    Attempt to construct it according to your pattern.
    Amen
    Jim Hine, Long Thoughts, short prayers and a bit of humor



  7. This is the day the Lord hath made;
    May I be joyful and glad therein.
    This is the day of light;
    Let my soul, O Lord;
    Be filled with light and peace.
    Amen.
    D. F. Sprigg, Short Prayers



  8. Lord, teach me to love Thee better,
    And so shall I better love Thy word.

  11. O my God, teach me to love Thee,
    Teach me to serve Thee.

    Lord, I offer myself to Thee,
    With all that I am and have,
    To be in all what Thou wouldest have me.
    Not my will, but Thine be done.

    Lord, be Thou my Keeper,
    And keep me from sin.
    Good Jesu, let nothing in life or death
    Ever separate me from Thee.

    Good Lord, grant that I may not die
    Unprepared to meet Thee.
    O Jesu, Saviour, who earnest to seek and
    To save that which was lost, save me.

    Wash me more and more from my wickedness,
    And cleanse me from my sin.
    Thomas Thellusson Carter, A book of private prayer



  12. Set a watch, Lord,
    Before my mouth, and
    Keep the door of my lips.

    Lord, keep my tongue from evil,
    And my lips that they speak no guile.
    T.T. Carter, The Guide To Heaven



  13. Thank you for the world so sweet,
    Thank you for the things we eat,
    Thank you for the birds that sing,
    Thank you, God, for everything.
    Roma Bishop, A Little Book of Prayers



  14. God, grant me the serenity
    to accept things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.
    Living one day at a time;
    Enjoying one moment at a time;
    Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
    Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world
    as it is, not as I would have it;
    Trusting that He will make all things right
    if I surrender to His Will;
    That I may be reasonably happy in this life,
    and supremely happy with Him
    Forever in the next.
    Amen
    Reinhold Niebuhr, Serenity Prayer



  15. Teach me to feel another's woe,
    To hide the fault I see;
    That mercy I to others shows,
    That mercy show to me.
    Alexander Pope
