holy and righteous,
powerful and awesome,
I remember love
that you loved us
and sent your Son,
crushed Him to be the satisfying offering
for all the sins of the world.
Without you Lord, I’m nothing,
a skeleton of failures, brokenness, and selfishnes
resurrected to spirit and life only by your power.
Empower me by your Spirit and life,
bring your strength to the end of my strength
let me walk in your light,
decreeing my righteousness bought by your blood,
shaming the enemy’s whispers and lies,
exalting you, all that you’ve done
by my being and words
that I may be a faithful witness unto you —
let your heartbeat and life beat through mine,
enable me to arise,
a force of your grace
ablaze in holiness and righteousness,
to be different and other,
salt and light,
that you would draw many to you,
imbue me with your supernatural love
to love as you do,
loving my brother and sister,
loving my enemies
that the world would see you.
Lord, you alone are worthy,
and I pray that my life would glorify you.
Holy are you,
glorious in your throne room of grace,
active, concerned, moving
nations and kings in alignment with your purposes.
I praise you for your promises,
time coming into its fullness
your prophetic word fulfilled
and your Son coming into His rightful place.
King of kings and Lord of lords,
make me ready.
I ask you for the spirit of the fear of the Lord
to cleanse my soul,
expose and deliver me from habitual sin,
awaken me from apathy and complacency,
come upon on my heart and mind,
that my spirit would remain
brightly burning, united with you.
Reorient me to your priorities,
being alert and sober-minded to pray,
to steward and spend my gifts and talents
for your kingdom, to glorify your Name,
not my own,
to be wise and shrewd as a snake,
gentle as a dove,
stepping into your love,
that my love would abound still more and more
in knowledge, depth of discernment, and insight,
making the most of this time left that you’ve given me,
to fulfill your purpose upon my life.
I long to hear you say
“Well done good and faithful servant.”
Let it be so Abba,
have your way in me.
You alone are worthy,
I bless you.
I praise you that you hold onto me,
uphold me in your love,
reminding me of your promises,
your goodness in the past,
so I can let go today,
and trust you.
I place my loved ones in your hands
trusting your plans, your will, your timing for them
and I’m grateful to have been a witness
of your love, your Spirit, your grace in their lives
for a moment in time
that I pray stretches into an eternity of fellowship
Lord, you give and you take away,
and I’m blessed for the footprints
that have come into and out of my life,
that you have used
to bless, enrich, grant love and wisdom,
to remind me how real you are,
how powerful and good,
how deeply you love this world,
so much that you came down
and gave your life for us all.
I long for the day
we will all be caught up in your power,
with every tear wiped from our eyes,
no more loss, grief, and pain,
enjoying sweet fellowship with you
with one another
I trust you Lord,
I let go,
and I bless you.
I thank you for your peace
transcending all understanding,
loosening and unfurling
the knotted messes of my soul,
calming, grounding, deepening within me
like the depths of an ocean swell
connected to the expanses of heaven above,
I’m riding the waves of praise emanating
from all your creation
and from my spirit within,
I can finally hear it
in the stillness of my soul.
Let me be still and know that you are God,
and align with the foundations of the universe
and all creation singing praise, glory, and honor
for who you are, what you’ve done,
your sacrifice, death, and life.
You hold the moon and stars in your hands,
you love this speck called earth,
you love me.
I rest assured, in peace,
in your ever-present, all-knowing, omnipotent love.
I praise you Lord.
I thank you for coming in fragile human flesh,
living among us,
knowing us intimately, painfully, and unreservedly.
Thank you for never turning away,
but pressing into death on the cross,
embracing all our brokenness,
taking all our sin, accusations, and shame,
and dying, burying it all in the grave.
You took yourself up into life,
which only you the Son of God, Son of Man can do,
and you made a way
for us to find home in you.
I praise you for being the tabernacle of life
that sustains, makes me whole,
bringing comfort, love, joy, peace, and rest.
I bless your Name for the promise
that you are coming again, soon,
and you’re making all things right
in accordance with your Word and decree,
waiting patiently for all
you’ve called into your household.
Thank you for your Spirit,
your presence with me
as we sojourn through this life,
and the hope of home with you
I bless you Lord.
I struggle to face the limits of my love,
realizing my efforts are dirty rags
revealing my control, anxiety,
a lack of faith in you.
Forgive me for my pride
in thinking my compassion and love
is better, greater than yours.
I loosen my grip,
open my palms,
and let go.
Enter in Lord,
and hold my pain,
comfort my heart,
fill my loneliness and emptiness,
cleanse my addictions and innoculations,
and set me free.
Your love sets free,
working all things for good.
You draw those you love,
and your love
is a greater force working
than any other.
So help me to trust,
lean into you,
and let go of me,
and believe that in the surrendering,
now you move,
in better, perfect ways I cannot see.
I trust you Lord.
You are Love,
let me be hidden in you,
one with you.
I quiet my busy mind
calm my antsy soul,
why is there such unrest within me?
When I gaze upon you in faith
with the eyes of my heart,
sensing your presence
the substance of what my faith longs for,
te weight of your Spirit
quenches my soul thirst,
heals my mind,
and settles my heart.
Lord, strengthen my inner man with your Spirit
that you would dwell in my heart as I trust in you.
Let my roots go down deep in your love
and make me unshakable, unmovable, magnanimous.
May I grasp how high, long, wide, and deep
your love is,
embracing and trusting the mystery
that all eternity will not be enough
to understand fully.
Let me be whole, complete, perfect as you are,
in the abundance of life and strength that comes from you,
that I may decrease and you would increase.
I praise you Lord
that you answer above and beyond
anything that I can ask, think, or imagine.
I praise you for your love.
I bless you for your love,
and trust in the person and power of your Son Yeshua the Messiah.
Grant me the grace to remain united with him,
and him with me.
Help me to love well,
because love is from you,
and everyone who loves has you as their Father,
and knows you.
You are love,
and you showed your love among us all
by sending your only Son into the world,
so that through him we might have life.
Love is not that I loved you,
but that you loved me and sent your Son
to be the sacrifice for my sins.
This is how you loved us,
let me love others as you loved me,
remain united with us,
and let our love for you be brought to its goal in us.
Thank you for your Spirit
that has drawn me to you
and testified of your love and your Son
in my heart.
I’ve come to know and trust the love you have for me,
and I love now only because you loved me first.
Please Abba, continue to expose and cast out all fear,
as there’s no fear in your love.
Refine and purify this heart with your fire,
mature me in love,
and let me love you and those around me
as you have loved me and called me.
I bless you Abba.
