Do you want to experience God’s favor?
Of course you do! So do I!
And the good news is that God LOVES to respond to prayer for favor. He loves to pour out blessings on His children.
In this guide, we’ll explore why you should pray for the favor of God.
We’ll also look at different prayers can pray for God’s favor every day. Ready? Let’s dive in.
Why Prayer For Favor? Because God Loves To Bless
As I read through the Bible, I see again and again that God absolutely LOVES to bless his people. He takes special pleasure in giving his people good gifts. He isn’t a miser, holding onto blessings with clutched fingers. On the contrary. He is overflowing with good things and blessings.
Consider Psalm 31:19, which says:
Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind!
How much goodness has God stored up for those who love and fear him? Abundant goodness. God doesn’t just have a few small blessings stored up for us. He doesn’t put us on blessing rations. No, he has overflowing, abundant goodness that he is waiting to pour out on us.
If this doesn’t motivate prayer for favor, then I don’t know what will!
A Prayer For God’s Favor
Lord, I know that you love to pour out abundant goodness on your children. Please let me experience your blessings and favor today. I can’t wait to see how you will encourage and strengthen and bless me. And please help me to be blessing to those around me. In Jesus name, amen.
The Favor Of God On His Children
One of the main reasons we can be confident when we lift a favor prayer is that God really and truly loves to give good, wonderful gifts to His children.
Consider Matthew 7:8-11:
For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
I love how this verse makes no qualifications when it comes to prayers for blessings. It doesn’t say, “If your motives are perfect and you’ve had a good week, then you can ask God to give you good things.”
No, it simply says, “Ask and it will be given to you.” Period. Don’t over think it. Don’t endlessly analyze yourself to determine if you’re “good enough” to ask God for blessings.
Simply ask God for whatever it is that you need.
Does God promise that he’ll give us everything we ask? No, of course not. There are times when it wouldn’t be good if God gave us what we asked.
If my kids asked for ten Oreos and I said, “Yes,” I wouldn’t be a good dad. I’d be stupid and my kids would probably feel sick. So God doesn’t always give us everything.
But God does tell us something glorious about himself. He says that he is our Father and that because he’s our Father, he loves to give us good gifts.
This reality gives me great confidence to lift up prayer for favor. God is my good, loving, kind, happy Father. God loves me. He delights in me as his son. He wants to do good to me.
Because he is my good Father, I can ask him for good things, knowing that he won’t withhold ANYTHING ultimately good thing from me. If something is good for me, God WILL give it to me.
Favor Prayer To The Father
Lord, I thank you that I am your child and that you love to give me wonderful gifts. Because I am in Christ, I am part of your family. As one of your family members, I know that I am loved by you. Please fill me with the Holy Spirit today. Please give me the blessing of feeling your presence. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus name, amen.
No Good Thing Will He Withhold
Psalm 84:11 is further proof of this glorious fact. It says, “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.”
Did you catch that? It says that God doesn’t withhold any good thing from those who walk uprightly. Do I always walk uprightly? No, of course not. I’m a sinner. But I am in Christ, who always walked uprightly. And the glorious truth is that Christ’s righteousness is mine.
And so because I’m in Christ, I can say that I do indeed walk uprightly. Therefore, I can confidently lift up prayer for favor because I know that God won’t withhold any good thing from me.
One more verse to inspire you to pray for God’s richest blessings upon your life. Psalm 23:6 says, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
This is such a sweet, profound verse. It says that goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. In other words, I can never escape God’s goodness and mercy. God loves me so much that he will literally pursue me with his goodness every day of my life.
Every day I wake up to new mercies and fresh blessings. Isn’t that good news?
Charles Spurgeon put it this way:
I have seen enough in my own lifetime to fill a volume concerning the goodness of the Lord in answer to his children’s prayers.
Prayer For God’s Richest Blessing
Lord, you are my shield who bestows favor and honor. You don’t withhold any good gifts from those who love you. I love you and am so eager to see all the ways you’re going to bless me. The biggest blessing of all is your presence, so that’s what I ask for the most. Please give me more of you! In Jesus name, amen.
A Prayer For Favor
Father, I come to you humbly, knowing that you are God and that I am your beloved child. I thank you for all the blessings you have abundantly poured out on me. You are always good and you always do good to me. Even if I never received another blessing, I would have received so much more than I deserve.
And yet, your word tells me that I am to regularly ask for your blessings. Your word commands to lift up prayer for favor. To ask you, my good, gracious Father, to pour out your blessings on me.
So I come to you boldly and with confidence, knowing that you delight to bless me. You have promised that you will never stop doing good to me. You have promised that you won’t withhold any good thing from me.
And so I ask you to pour out your favor on me. Bless me in ways I wouldn’t even think to ask. I need you more than life itself. Would you please give me more of yourself. More of your love. More of your grace. I want to know you more, which is the greatest blessing of all.
I also ask that you would provide for all of my physical needs. You have promised that you would meet all my needs according to your glorious RICHES in Christ. I thank you that you are going to pour out your richest blessings on me. I trust you to bless me in overwhelming ways.
Thank you Lord for your glorious favor on my life. I thank you that you love to bless me and will bless me. I ask all these things in the name of Jesus, my only righteousness. In his name, Amen.

Thank you so much
Truly a prayer of GRATEFULNESS and FAVOR
God will bless me thanks for your words his truth endure for ever.
Very balanced, Biblical article. I have deep problems with the “if you have enough faith” vending machine approach to prayer and God’s answers. Yes, God loves to bless us, but the biggest blessing is our relationship with Him and the realization of our dependence upon Him. Sometimes it requires trials to develop that. Ask for His blessing, but don’t dictate what form ot will take.
Amen to that. God is not a vending machine. We ask for his blessing and then trust that he will provide blessing in the form he wants.
Thank you for sharing good word of GOD kindly pray for my husband to come back to our marriage, now six years since he left and we have two kids.
Proverbs 30:7- “Two things I ask of you, Lord; do not refuse me before I die:
:8- Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.
:9- Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’ Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.
