Passionate Prayers and Prophetic Songs
This page is dedicated to all who believe in the power of prayers to the God who sees, hears and understands the earthly conditions of man. He created us in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26 & 27) and gave us authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beasts and over everything that creeps upon the earth. He created us male and female therefore proving that He knows us more than we even know ourselves. Therefore, it is our right to explore the wonderful opportunities of prayer (the act of talking to God) for in this we can find many solutions to our issues of life.
On this page, you'll find some prayer scripts handpicked from different passages of scripture, in no particular order of selection. These prayer accounts were so beautifully weaved that much was stirred up within the soul upon reading such intense material coupled with an urge to learn and understand the reason of passion behind such prayers. May you be blessed and inspired to connect with the God who answers such prayers from the domain of men. God bless you richly! Amen.
The First Prayer Script is taken from the Book of Nehemiah 1: 5-11 (Amplified)
And said, O Lord God of Heaven, the great and terrible God. Who keeps covenant, loving-kindness and mercy for those who love Him and keep His commandments. Let Your ear now be attentive and Your ears open, to listen to the prayer of Your servant which I pray before You day and night for the Israelites Your servants, confessing the sins of the Israelites which we have sinned against You. We have acted very corruptly against You and have not kept the commandments, statutes and ordinances which You commanded Your servant Moses.
Remember earnestly what You commanded Your servant Moses: If you transgress and are unfaithful, I will scatter you abroad among the nations. But if you keep My commandments and do them, though your outcasts were in the farthest part of the heavens (the expanse of outer space) yet will I gather them from there and will bring them to the place in which I have chosen to set My name.
Now these are Your servants and Your people whom You have redeemed by Your great power and by Your strong hand. O Lord, let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant and the prayer of Your servants who delight to revere and fear Your name (Your nature and attributes): and prosper I pray You, Your servant this day and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was cupbearer to the king.
The Second Prayer Script is taken from the Book of 1 Samuel 2:1-10 (NIV)
1: Then Hannah prayed and said: "My heart rejoices in the LORD; in the LORD my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance.
2: There is no one holy like the LORD; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.
3: Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak such arrogance, for the LORD is a God who knows, and by Him deeds are weighed.
4: The bows of the warriors are broken, but those who stumbled are armed with strength.
5: Those who were full hire themselves out for food, but those who were hungry are hungry no more. She who was barren has borne seven children, but she who has had many sons pines away.
6: The LORD brings death and makes alive; He brings down to the grave and raises up.
7: The LORD sends poverty and wealth; He humbles and He exalts.
8: He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; He sends them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honour. For the foundations of the earth are the LORD's; on them He has set the world.
9: He will guard the feet of His faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. It is by strength that one prevails;
10: Those who oppose the LORD will be broken. The Most High will thunder from heaven; the LORD will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to His king and exalt the horn of His anointed."

18: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
19: The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's feet and He will make me walk on my high hills.
To the Chief Musician. With my stringed instruments.
