Psalms 5:12 (NKJV) For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.

Luke 2:52 (NKJV) 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.

Favour can be understood as receiving special treatment, blessings, or approval from someone, whether it’s God or other people. It often implies receiving kindness, grace, or advantages that are not necessarily earned or deserved.

How to obtain favour from God and man:

  • With God: Seek a close relationship with God through prayer, worship, and obedience to His word. Trust in His timing and His plans for your life.
  • With man: Treat others with kindness, respect, and love. Build positive relationships by being helpful, trustworthy, and supportive. Be genuine in your interactions and seek to understand others’ perspectives.


Praying for favour involves seeking God’s will and aligning our desires with His purposes, trusting that He will grant us favour according to His perfect plan.

Pray for God’s favour to be upon you in all areas of your life, including relationships, careers, and endeavours. Ask God to grant you wisdom and discernment to recognize opportunities where His favour may be at work. Pray for the humility to accept God’s favour graciously and to use it for His glory rather than for selfish gain. Seek God’s guidance in building and maintaining healthy relationships with others, so that His favour may be evident in those connections.
