Mrsplanahead is a place where I enjoy writing out prayers, providing freebies for them, and sharing my faith in God with my audience. God always protects us and keeps us safe but I enjoy praying specific prayers for just his guidance and protection.

I’ve included two other prayers I’ve written myself also. God is a huge part of my life and my family’s life.

What really helps me to keep my relationship strong with God is reading my women’s Bible and writing in my prayer journal constantly.

I like to use beautifully engraved pens for writing in my prayer journal. Not only that, but I enjoy using my women’s Devotional to help grow closer to God.

Our faith is something we take seriously and something we help nurture and grow. Faith must be taken care of as well.

In the Bible, it says, “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10.

How does one pray a powerful prayer?

We all need prayers in life, even if we are going through our good times and not our bad times. God wants us to reach out to him and pray daily so that he can protect us.

He always wants to remain close to us. God loves us so much!

Praying a powerful prayer is easy to do as long as you feel like you need to pray what you’re praying. It helps to center yourself and really believe what you’re asking God for.

Take the moment to be sincere, respectful, and try to tell God exactly how you feel. He knows when you are trying to get in touch with him and when you really need him.

Make that extra effort for him, instead of putting in half of the effort. Let God know how much you care.

Sometimes, you need to set your life up to remind you of God. We all know how busy we are in our day to day lives.

I like to have reminders in my home of God. From my Christian coffee mug to Christian jewelry. Anything that reminds me of God is welcome in my home and I like for my children to grow up with God everywhere around them!

I always read my children this 365-day storybook to teach them about the Bible. It’s their favorite book for bedtime now!

Prayer for protection.

Dear God,

Thank you for all of the beautiful blessings you’ve given me. I’m so grateful and thankful for you getting me through the week.

You’ve protected me this week and kept me safe, Lord. I recognize that and I’m so very grateful.

Lord, I trust and confide in you to keep me safe and to keep my family safe as well, Lord. I love you so much.

Lord, please continue to protect me against my enemies. Continue to take care of me and stay one step ahead of anyone who doesn’t have good intentions towards me.

Please bless my steps, Lord, and keep me safe and well protected. I trust in you with all I’ve got and I know you’ll never leave me.

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen.

I love to pray every day and one thing I always pray for is protection. You never know what situations can come up out of nowhere so I find it calming and relaxing to pray out everything I need to pray to God daily.

Some days, I am so busy since I work from home, have a super busy morning schedule, and homeschool my children. However, I still have to pray to God daily.

Not only does it soothe me but it helps to prevent anxiety I know I can get if I don’t pray. That’s why I make the time always to pray to God and to thank Him for everything he has blessed me with.

More prayers for guidance and protection.

This prayer is for guidance and asking God to really light our path for us.

Dear Lord, 

I pray for guidance this week. There’s nothing I’d like more than to be just like you, Lord. 

I could really use your guidance in doing just that. Please guide my path and light it for me, Lord. 

I want to avoid mistakes with your help, Lord. Patience is something I am lacking God and I could use more of. 

Please fill me up with patience, kindness, and sympathy for others. I know how kind you are and how big your heart is for others. 

Lord, please help me become more like you. Please help me be more empathetic towards others.

I want to be patient just like you and helpful towards other people. When difficult situations arise Lord, please help me stay on the right path.

The path that you want me to stay on, Lord. Lord, please help me be thoughtful, generous, and be able to help others as you always do.

I pray for a good, healthy, and well-balanced life, Lord. Thank you so much for everything.

There will be times in my life where I don’t make the right decisions. I try really hard to make the right choice!

However, life isn’t perfect and we aren’t either. I like to pray to God for his guidance, wisdom, and understanding.

There’s nobody to pray to better than God! He sets such a good example for us to follow.

In the Bible, it says, “A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel.” Proverbs 1:5.

Prayer for Strength.

Dear Lord, 

I pray for strength today. Strength for work, health, and to have a positive mindset. 

The strength that you have Lord is incomparable and I really need you to give me strength like yours. I need strength to sustain me against gossip, negative vibes, and for the long days at work. 

Strength is something I will always need to get through my days and I know that on the days I’m not feeling strong, you’re right there for me to lean on. Please bless me with a lot of strength and patience, Lord. 

Lord, please give me the strength I need to get all my tasks done and motivation to keep ongoing. There are days where I just don’t want to be productive or get anything done, Lord. 

Please help me fight that feeling and give me the strength that I need to be successful and accomplish all of my goals. I love you, Lord. 

Thank you so much for all the blessings you have given me. 

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen. 

There’s a verse in the Bible of God’s strength. In the Bible, it says, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10.

What’s the best prayer to pray to God?

I went through a phase of not knowing what to pray for. Sometimes, I would stumble and just try to cover the basics.

The truth is, that just doesn’t work. You can’t just “cover the basics” with God.

You’re having a conversation with Him. Do you just “cover the basics” when you’re talking to your best friend, sister, or husband?

No, you don’t. That’s why I highly recommend having a prayer journal handy.

It can help your relationship grow with God if you write what you feel instead of having to say a verbal prayer when you just aren’t feeling it. God must love to read our prayers!

I’ve written out prayers for my husband and even faith in God quotes. They are sometimes printed out onto my favorite daily planner!

Just figure out what you need to pray to God and make sure to have respect when you’re praying to Him. God isn’t just anybody to pray to.

You have to really talk with him, share, and confide in Him. He knows when you’re being genuine and when you’re not.

Try your hardest to share your feelings with Him and to take the time to get to know him. Review your Bible daily and your Devotionals too.

I like to have a Bible app and a Devotional app on my phone. That way when I am out and about and need some inspiration from God I can pull up the apps on my phone without a problem.

If you don’t have those apps on your phone, I highly recommend you do.

Prayer for wisdom.

Dear Lord, 

I pray for wisdom for any situation that comes ahead. Please help me to be more like you and handle situations as you see fit, Lord. 

Lord, I pray for the wisdom to make the right decisions for my life and help to get along with others. Please guide me to make the right choices for what lies ahead in my future. 

Lord, I pray for good business sense, to get along well with my spouse in my marriage, and to make good parenting choices. Not just that, Lord but I pray for help to be a good person, daughter, wife, spouse, and mother. 

God, I just want to make the right choices in my life to honor you. I pray for guidance in doing this and thank you for helping me every day. 

You’ve always put me first and have been there for me since I could remember. I love you, Lord. 

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen. 

We are human and don’t always make the best decisions. And you can’t always depend on others to make the right choice for you either.

That’s why I like to pray to God for wisdom and guidance in my life. God will make the right decisions for you!

You just need to open up your heart and mind. Let God tell you what to do but give him trust to do so.

Often, we go to our spouse, teacher, parent, or loved one to ask for advice on something. I’m not saying to stop asking for advice.

Advice is always nice to get. Still, you have to remember that not everyone has your best interest at heart.

God does. So, be sure to ask God for advice first before asking someone else.

How does one pray to protect their home?

I want to go ahead and say, I constantly pray daily for the safety and protection of my family members and my home. You should do the same.

Just make sure to ask God to bless your family and to protect the home that you’re in. Don’t forget to ask him to bless each one of you and to light a path He sees fit for every one of you.

God loves us and will listen to our prayers. He will protect your home when you pray for it.

Praying daily for the protection of your home is never a bad idea. Make sure you try to get used to praying for your home.

Always ask God for help in building your home up and for caring for your loved ones inside of your home. Put God first when asking for help and guidance.


I hope these prayers have helped your relationship with God grow. Learn to put trust in God in all that you do and God won’t abandon you.

What’s coming up on Mrsplanahead? I have two more faith blog posts left in this month dedicated to God.

Next month, I will be focusing on creating more planner posts and growing my website more. Bear with me as I grow through all these changes, but it will be worth it in the end!
