Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Thursday, January 31, 2013 Under: Prayers


man praying for long lifePrayer for long life is a compilation of the promises of God for long life. One of the many promises of God to his children is long life. The scripture says in Psalm 91:16 “with long life will I satisfy him and shew him my salvation”. The Lord does not want us to die untimely (John3:16). He wants us to live a long healthy life.
 
However, Long life is a promise that comes with lots of conditions. In Psalm 34:12-14, the conditions include: keeping tongue from evil, lips from speaking lies, departing from evil, doing good, seeking and pursuing peace.  In Psalm 91:14-16, God promise of long life comes with a condition of loving the Lord. In Proverbs 3:1-2, the promise of long life come with obedient to the laws and commandment of the Lord. Whoever is ready to fulfil these conditions, can go ahead to cry unto the Lord with this prayer of long life.
 
Scripture Reading: Psalm 21:1-9, 91:14-16
