How do I find favor with God?
First, know that God loves you, and He desires to give His favor to everyone who will believe Him.
Next, pray this prayer: “Dear Heavenly Father, I come before You right now by faith believing that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins so that I may be saved. Lord Jesus, please forgive me for my sins and change me from the inside out. I ask You to come into my heart right now and be Lord over every area of my life. Please seal me with Your Holy Spirit and fill me with Your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Help me become more like You. Thank You, Lord Jesus. I love You so much! In Your name, Amen.”
Once you have prayed this prayer to receive Christ as your Savior and Lord, then praise God that He has richly blessed you with His favor! Praise Him for saving a wretch like you through the death of His Son on the cross.
Finally, stay in God’s Word daily and ask Him to help you walk in His favor by faith!
What does the Bible say about divine favor?
“God will give favor and glory to everyone who does what is right.” – Romans 2:11a NLT
Divine favor is a wonderful thing. It’s that feeling of being blessed by God when you least expected it. We have all experienced divine favor at some point in our lives; that sense that the Lord is looking out for us.
Maybe you pulled into just the right parking space when you were running late to an appointment, maybe someone gave you some unexpected money when you were in desperate need – those are all examples of divine favor that we may have personally experienced.
Another good example also is Luke 1:28 which tells us “And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.”
Here we see that Mary is not only favored by God but she is blessed among all women.
10 Ways To Find Favor With God
1. Show kindness to your relatives. 2. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not depend on your own understanding. 3. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. 4. Do not be impressed with your own wisdom. 5. Do not give attention to foolish or stupid ideas. 6. If you listen to advise, you will be at home among the wise. 7. For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. 8. Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it is in your power to help them. 9. Help the poor and needy people whenever you can. 10. Ask God for guidance and listen to his voice; do not be proud or stubborn because of what you know.
How do you pray for Favor?
Dear Heavenly Father, I come before you with a heart of gratitude, knowing that you are a Father who loves to give blessings.
I thank you for the favor and grace that you have bestowed on me as your child. Father, I come to ask you now for a special blessing. Bless me with _______ (specifically). I ask this in Jesus’ name Amen!
