Prayer for God’s Favor:
“O Lord God I seek Your favor upon my life today. Because You have given me Your righteousness, I believe that I have found favor in the eyes of God. Because You are a covenant-keeping God, You will look on me with favor and make me fruitful and bring increase in my life.
Like Joseph, I will prosper in every position, concern, or situation where I am in, because the Lord is with me. Because of Your favor, I experience preferential treatment from other people. Since I work with integrity I will obtain favor from God. A good man obtains favor from the Lord, and those who do what’s right cannot be removed. I actively seek and live by Your higher wisdom; therefore, I am highly favored and esteemed in the sight of God and men. Your favor brings promotion and approval. You O Lord take pleasure in my prosperity. You desire for me to prosper in every area of my life— spiritually, financially, emotionally, physically, mentally and socially. You surround and protect me with favor like a shield; therefore, no sickness or disease can live in my body. I thank You Lord that Your favor upon my life endures for a lifetime. I give You praise and honor. In Jesus’ name, Amen!”
