How Do I Pray for God’s Favor?

Before discussing how to pray for God’s favor, we should understand exactly what the favor of God means. 

God’s favor, also known as grace, is the act of God granting us the power to do something that would otherwise be impossible for us to accomplish.

Examples include the fact that we can only experience eternal life because of God’s unmerited kindness, as well as the fact that we have the opportunity to live for the Lord because of God’s grace.

Simply put, God’s favor or grace can be defined as God granting us the ability to do something that would otherwise be impossible for us to accomplish on our own.

When we are praying for God’s favor it is important to:

  1. Be humble
  2. Show remorse for our sins (i.e., a contrite spirit)
  3. Believe what God says in His word.

Prayers for God’s Favor

Today is a good day to get a dose of God’s favor. You already have it if you’re God’s child.

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us; yes, establish the work of our hands. (NIV)

In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Is there an area of your life in which you are needing supernatural favor from God because the “ask” is so big?

God’s power is bigger and stronger than anything you could possibly ask for so all you need to do is ask Him in prayer!

The Bible says to

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” (NIV)

O LORD, my God, I ask for the supernatural favor in all parts of my life. Keep Your eyes on me this week and throughout the month as I go about my business. Keep an eye on me with Your loving compassion and tenderness. In the name of Jesus, guide me in all of my decisions and protect me at all times! In the name of Jesus, please surround me with Your heavenly favor. Amen.

You should use biblical verses to pray for favor and supernatural favor in order to receive breakthroughs and mercies.

You may feel helpless if you’re having financial difficulties.

Offer up to God a prayer for financial favor. 

Lord, You are the source of all the blessings, and I ask to open up all the financial doors of heaven in my favor.  In the name of Jesus, grant me a level of prosperity that will completely erase any financial stress I am facing.  Allow satan to come nowhere close to my financial blessings which you have granted. Help me to get stronger financially, and be a good steward of what You have blessed me with, in Jesus Name I ask. Amen

It is in these moments that it is important to remember God is more than willing and able to help you and send a financial breakthrough your way.
