Prayers to Pray from Head to Toe


Often we forget to pray specific and practical prayers.

Like prayers taken directly from God’s Word that are powerful when spoken over the various areas of our lives.

This is especially true where we struggle.

So let’s address the issues we face as believers from head to toe. And these prayers include the help we need from the Bible.

Our prayers include: our mind, eyes, ears, mouth, shoulders, heart, hands, and feet.

Everything from our head to our toes.

Prayers to Pray: Mind

FatheGod, You created my mind, so I submit it to Your care. Help me set my mind on eternal thingsAnd give me power to take every thought captive, making it obedient to Your truth. I cast out every lie from the enemy. Help me meditate on what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, and excellent of praise. Let Your Spirit renew my mind daily in Your Word. Also, give me the mind of Christ. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

(Scriptures: Colossians 3:2, 1 Corinthians 2:12 & 16, Romans 12:2a, Philippians 4:8, 2 Corinthians 10:5)

Prayer: Eyes

Lord, Your Word reminds me how my eyes can cause me to sin. So help me turn my eyes away from lust and temptations like overspending, addictions, and sexual immorality. Place in me a desire for integrity. Give me the strength through Your Spirit to not set things before my eyes that do not please You on television, devices, and online. Because those things never bring honor to You, but defile my flesh. And it stunts my growth in You. Instead, let my eyes be raised to You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

(Scriptures: Genesis 3:6a, 1 John 2:15-16, Psalm 101:3a)

Prayers to Pray: Ears

God, I want to be a child who diligently listens to my heavenly Father’s voice. And to really hear Your truth. Show me the way by opening my ears to Your voice—never stopping up my ears like a stubborn child. But I want to welcome Your truth in my life and never turn away to myths. When I accepted Christ as Savior, I opened the door of my heart to You for the first time. Now, help me hear You knock so I may dine with You daily. In Jesus’ name. Amen. 

(Scriptures: Exodus 15:26, Isaiah 30:21a, Zechariah 7:11, 2 Timothy 4:3-4, Revelation 3:20)

Prayer: Mouth

Lord, I pray the words of my mouth are acceptable to You and I keep my lips from lies. Set a guard over my mouth so that instead of foolish words, my words give grace and build others up. Let my mouth praise You with thanksgiving. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

(Scriptures: Psalm 19:14, Psalm 141:3, Proverbs 12:22a, Ephesians 4:29, Ephesians 5:4)

Prayers to Pray: Shoulders

Lord, I carry burdens only meant for You. Please lift any worry and anxiety. Your burden is light and frees me to rest from the heaviness of life’s struggles. Grant me compassion to help carry the burdens of others. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

(Scriptures: Matthew 11:28-30, Luke 15:3-5, Galatians 6:2)

Prayer: Heart

Father, since You look at the heart and not the outside, create in me a pure heart that hides Your Word there, so I don’t sin against You. Help me guard my heart, above all else. And give me the desire to trust and love You with ALL my heart. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

(Scriptures: 1 Samuel 16:7, Psalm 51:10a, Psalm 119:11, Proverbs 4:23, Matthew 22:37a)

Prayers to Pray: Hands

God, give me clean hands for righteous acts, not for evil. Let my hands do good and bring good to others. Help me lift my hands to praise Your holy name and not the false gods of this world. Establish the work of my hands in my job and in ministry for Your kingdom and glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

(Scriptures: Psalm 24:3-4, Psalm 90:17a, Psalm 134:2, Acts 6:6b)

Prayer: Feet

Lord, I desire beautiful feet like Jesus that bring good news and proclaim how You reign over all the earth. Let my feet spread the gospel of peace. Keep my feet on Your paths and on the solid rock—Christ. Help me walk in the light of Your glory and Holy Word to avoid the darkness so my feet do not slip from Your righteous path. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
