Many years ago,1977 to be exact, while on vacation in Trinidad, I was introduced to a Pastor who gave me this very short but powerful prayer for use in times of need; any kind of need; spiritual, physical, emotional, to name a few.
“Jesus Christ, the Great I AM, have mercy on me.”
It is a prayer to be repeated over and over until the peace of Christ is felt in body and soul.
The prayer has been a huge blessing to me and several others over the years. Following are a few scriptures introducing “I AM”:
I am the Bread of Life (John 6:35)
I am the Light of the World (John 8:12)
I am the Door (John 10:9)
I am the Good Shepherd (John 10:11,14)
I am the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25)
I am the Way and the Truth and the Life (John 14:6)
I am the Vine (John 15:1,5)
I am the First and I am the Last (Isaiah 44:6)
I Am who I Am (Exodus 3:14)
I am the Alpha and the Omega (Revelation 1:8)
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End (Revelation 21:6)
My prayer is that this prayer will be valuable to all who use the Lord’s name not in vain.
