May these 15 prayer points bring prayers for breakthrough, a prayer for favor, and many other prayer topics for your daily walk with God.
It doesn’t matter if you are new or experienced in prayer points. The power of prayer is such a life giving wonder and a safe haven during our best and worst times.
Prayer is a conversation with God. My favorite analogy on prayer to God is when we have a conversation with a friend venting, celebrating, or just needing to be heard. Much like these conversations with a friend, Jesus is our friend who listens when we speak to Him.
I am fascinated by the plethora of resources on the theological studies of prayer topics. In short, there are many types of prayer. Melissa Tumino takes us on a deeper dive as to the 9 Types Of Prayer In The Bible explaining the biblical meaning behind prayers.
It’s never too late to start praying using prayer points.
You may wonder, “Why do we pray?”
We pray because in the Bible, God told us to pray.
Prayer gives us hope — hope for comfort, provision, love, peace, and grace. When we are praying to the Father, we are also choosing to trust in His will for our circumstances.
All you need for effective prayer points is to simply have faith and the willingness to seek God. Jeremiah 29:12 tells us that when we pray to God, He will listen to us.
Jeremiah 29:12 Amplified Bible (AMP) Then you will call on Me and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear [your voice] and I will listen to you.
Have you ever thought that your situation is just too small or too big for God to handle?
I’m here to tell you that this is simply not true. Nothing is too small nor too big for God to handle. In Philippians 4:6, the bible tells us that we are to share not only the most important things to God, but everything. Every circumstance, every prayer, He wants to hear them all. Why? Because He loves you; beyond your wildest dreams, God loves you.
Philippians 4:6 Amplified Bible (AMP) Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.
But have you ever been in a situation where you just don’t know how to pray during a specific situation? Perhaps you are mentally and emotionally burnt out and feel hopeless. Or perhaps you are facing temptations that are not good for you and don’t know if you have the strength to overcome them.
Declaring prayer points that target challenging areas and communicating your heart with the Lord is essential to help overcome temptation. I believe that the Holy Spirit will meet you where you are and help you in your situation.
Matthew 26:41 English Standard Version (ESV) Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Prayer points aren’t only for our moments of despair. You can use prayer points even when you experience a true miracle or an answer to prayer thanking God for His provisions. It is our responsibility to pray and rejoice continually in all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 New International Version (NIV) Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
This post is to introduce you to the start of a series on the different types of Prayer Points.

PRAYER POINTS FOR PROTECTION
Dear Lord Jesus, I declare that I will stand strong in times of battle never forgetting the tools You’ve provided. Please help me put on the whole Armor of God and stand against and resist the rulers, powers, and spiritual forces of darkness. In Jesus’ powerful name I pray, Amen.
Ephesians 6:11-17 Amplified Bible (AMP) Put on the full armor of God [for His precepts are like the splendid armor of a heavily-armed soldier], so that you may be able to [successfully] stand up against all the schemes and the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist and stand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]. So stand firm and hold your ground, having tightened the wide band of truth (personal integrity, moral courage) around your waist and having put on the breastplate of righteousness (an upright heart), and having strapped on your feet the gospel of peace in preparation [to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and the readiness produced by the good news]. Above all, lift up the [protective] shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
Dear Jesus, there is power in Your name. Thank You for Your faithfulness upon my life. I pray for strength and protection from the evil one. In Jesus’ powerful name I pray, Amen.
2 Thessalonians 3:3 New International Version (NIV) But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.

1 Corinthians 10:13 New International Version (NIV) No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
