How do I pray for myself?,  Prayer Tips & Tools

Perspective Shifting Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come before you in humility under your mighty hand.  According to Psalm 100:4, I choose to enter your Gates with thanksgiving and go into Your courts with praise; I give thanks to You and praise Your name!  I surrender all my situations and circumstances to you under the blood of Jesus.

I pray that You, Heavenly Father, will place your lens over my eyes so that I can see myself, those around me, and all my situations and circumstances, as well as everything under my stewardship from Heaven through Your eyes.  Let me be able to see through your eyes and feel through your heart all that is before me.

No longer do I want to see through my own eyes or feel through my own heart.  For I decree and declare, according to Isaiah 55:8-9 that Your thoughts are higher than my thoughts and Your ways are higher than my ways.  I pray that it is only your thoughts and ways that flow through my heart, mind, and out of my mouth.

According to Proverbs 4:23, help me O Lord, guard my heart above all else for it determines the course of my life.

No matter how things look through my eyes, I give you all the praise, honor and glory.  For you are the God who gives and the God who takes away, so praise be to The Lord Our God!

Everything I have asked, I have asked in the name of Jesus, and I believe it is fully received NOW!!  Amen and amen!



Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
    go into his courts with praise.
    Give thanks to him and praise his name.”

-Psalm 100:4 (NLT)


“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.

    “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so my ways are higher than your ways
    and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”

-Isaiah 55:8-9 (NLT)

Guard your heart above all else,
    for it determines the course of your life.”

-Proverbs 4:23 (NLT)
