Prayer to close and to open doors

Prayer to close and to open doors


Paul wrote to the Ephesians asking them to pray all kinds of prayers (Eph 6:18) and the prayer to close and to open doors is my favorite.

I encourage every Christian to pray this prayer each morning before getting out of his home and the results are sometimes impressive because this prayer allows us to stay in the will of God and especially it breaks and control our carnal desires.

Each morning, you should ask God to close all bad doors i.e. opportunities which may move you away from the will of God. There are circumstances which seem to be a blessing while actually distract us or lead us away from the divine plan.

At the same time, I pray to ask the Lord to open the right doors i.e. circumstances and situations that push us in the will of God.


When I pray this prayer in the morning, I feel a firm conviction that the Lord is the master of all the circumstances of my day (Daniel 2:21) and if something does not work as I want, instead of being frustrated or disappointed, I thank the Lord and it gives me the peace of the mind. My heart is no more tensed or worried about what might happen in the future because the future is in the hands of God.

Let us totally trust Him so that He would be not only our Savior but also our Lord.
